Parading Lady had no excuse other than possibly being short, and conceding weight to all of her rivals, dropping out of contention after a quarter mile. Hadassah was firrst out of the gate in the Gazelle, but Aesthete quickly forged to. the front, while Hushaby Baby was a length behind as they rounded the clubhouse turn. Parading Lady was in fourth place at that stage, as close as she was ever to get. Aesthete and Hadassah were heads apart turning into the backstretch, but York sent Hushaby Baby through an unexpected opening on the rail and was soon lapped on the leaders, taking command nearing the far turn. Dinewisely was in next-to-last place at the far turn, with only Isograde behind her, then began a long, belated run. Meanwhile, Hushaby Baby had widened her lead to two lengths, while Hadassah momentarily took second place from Aesthete, but was trying to bear in, compelling Hedley Wood-house to- switch his whip to his left hand. In the run for home, Hushaby Baby drifted out slightly and Guerin went back to the inside with Aesthete, but was unable to gain, while Hadassah only lost second money because Woodhouse was forced to devote most of his energies to keeping that filly from bearing over on Aesthete. Dine-wisely ran past beaten horses at the end. M. J. Kaplans Sunshine Nell scored an easy victory over six rivals in the Mignonette Purse that preceded the Gazelle, coast- ing to the end of the six furlongs half a dozen lengths before B. Frank Christmas Winship. Edward M. OBriens pacemaking Bank Account was another length away and a half length before Duntreath Farms Dixie Flyer, an invader from the Midwest who closed steadily along the rail after a tardy beginning. William Ewings Dark Favorite was the choice, appeared to try to bear out at the far turn, then wearied in the stretch and finished fifth.
