A consistent speedster as a juvenile* U. S. Navy was making her second start of the current campaign and the 1:12 she turned in over the six panels was enough to get her the first triumph of the 1951 season.

Although there were no real outsiders accounting for the events through the first six races, only two of the choices made good. The afternoons card opened with Greenbriers Sun Flavor scoring easily in the favorites role. The third race, a five-furlong dash for two-year-olds, was taken by B. A. Darios Ranch House, a slight choice over Rolls Nap and Lady Wilson, who finished third and second respectively.
