New supplied the winner i the former King Plate winner, Aymond. Star Crest, from the Hastings Stable, was second and Refiner, coupled with Shorelint as the Thorncliffe Stable entry, earned third. Lindsay was fourth and Pat Gaiety brought up the rear. From a good start Star Crest went to the front,, but Thomas roused Aymond several times with the whip and was right along with the leader after making the turn and had gone into command by the time the back stretch was reached. All the last furlong the leaders were fighting it out heads apart and inside the last seventy yards Star Crest had drawn on even terms. Aymond, responding in courageous fashion in the last few strides, shook off hi3 rival and had a half-length advantage at the end. Seven lengths further back came Re-finer, but he had never figured seriously in the running. Although there were threats of rain during the early afternoon, it had no ill effects on the. attendance, a crowd of quite some size being on hand to witness the return of the thoroughbreds. Roy Waldron saddled his sixteenth winner of the Windsor season when he sent Feudal Lord out to account for the opening five furlongs dash that engaged an even dozen under claiming conditions. Rattlesnake Tom raced coupled with the winner, but finished far back after bearing out at the stretch turn.

Morlove, Prince West-end and Rattlesnake Tom were fighting it out for the lead when they all lost considerable ground by going out past the center of the track. As the leaders went wide it was then that Horvath sent the son of Stefan the Great into command, never to be threatened and reaching the finishing line well clear and with speed in reserve. Jackknife came stoutly to gain second place and third was the lot of the neglected War General. The Tedlu Stables Rollin In was an easy winner of the six furlongs third race. Live One, from the H. C. Hatch string and one of the field group, raced to the place, and C. Smythes Big Blow defeated Solace for third. There was a delay of eight minutes at the post before the starter caught the field in alignment to his liking. Rollin In lost little time in getting to the top and soon opened up a long lead, followed by Wacket, Ste-phanus and Flying Don. Hooper continued to rate the Tedlu Stables representative along in front. Nearing the stretch Ste-phanus and Wacket dropped back, and Flying Don bore out. Live One came into the picture as the stretch was reached, but Rollin In vas going strongly out in front and reached the finishing line a length and a half to the good, while Live One was well clear of Big Blow. Roy Waldron saddled his second winner of the afternoon when Shoot triumphed by the narrowest of margins over Caryldon in the one mile and a sixteenth of the fourth race. Sabina H., gaining clear sailing on the inside through the stretch, was along in the last few strides to take third from Burton Agnes.
