first two heats and looked a sure/win?
ner. Net until the third heat did Mc
Grath drive Moelle. Then/ he set
such a fast pace with Eerha/challeng
Ing every inch of the grou/id. that the
mile was done in 2:12 remarkably
fast time, considering.-'the condition
of the track. Despite7this effort, the
mare came back gajhely. winning the
next two heats ip/ good style, Berka
falwtays ready to do Brittle, ttago.

The steeplechase was a canter torj
'Mystic Light, with Benlala second and;
Aronoe, Bob Taylor's mount, third, j
The three-quarter run was grabbed 'by i
Promised Land, well backed. Masks j
snd Faces got the place and Harvey'

priced horse, Cloud, winning; The I
Royal Prince, heavily backed, second,!
and Little England third. Jockey Ma-]
