Capt Jack Hanover circled three wide at the five-eighths marker. Penzance Hanover was then able to inherit a second over trip on the rim. At the top of the stretch, Penzance Hanover was in high gear and gunned down pacesetter Heinikin Bythebay and a parked out Capt Jack Hanover. Downers Delight mounted a fierce charge late in the stretch but ran out of race track. Penzance Hanover held on to win by a head in 1:51 and paid $7.40 as the betting favorite.
