Registering her third victory from a busy campaign the Harry Newcombe-owned lass carried Ralph Borgemenke to the end of six furlongs with nearly two lengths to spare over Lacuna while a similar distance farther back came Jett-Belle for the show. Negotiating the distance in 1:05% over a a dry strip, Carolling paid .20. v Lady React, making the first start of her career, won the first race, which was a sprint of five furlongs for two-year-old maidens.

Firey One, with apprentice Tommy OKeefe in the saddle, romped to a four-length victory in the second race and, combined in the Daily Double with Lady React, returned 19.20. Owned by E. E.
