time set down the horses (nine in number) left the post; Wallace made the running at a cracking pace, Starke lying second, followed past the stand by Royallieu.
Optimist (also owned by Mr. Ten Broeck) and Wizard; then came Thormanby, Doefoot, Lady Clifden and Mon Etoile, in the order we have given to the hill, going up which Wallace increased his lead considerably, and was upwards of six lengths in advance of Mr. Ten Broeck's horse as they neared the Craven post, Royallieu going on third, Wizarthe course, the three running extremely wide to the stand, when Fordham called upon his horse, (Starke,) who answered in the most gallant manner, and, after a protracted finish, landed the American colors first by a head only, Wizard defeating Optimist by three lengths for the second money; Thormanby finished a bad fourth; Mon Etoile, who ran through as the others were pulling up, was fifth, Wallace sixth, Doefoot next, and Royallieu and Lady Clifden the two last.
Run in 4 minutes 50 seconds.
