The first to break the line was Key, with Luster, Parthenopieus, The Grafter, Malto, and Paul Pry next in order. Key still had command as the hor3ss swept out of the straight, Malto being second, and Paul Pry and The Grafter next. Here a collision took place belween Gaulus and Water Culor, who were some di-jtance in front of Dreamland and Mischief, who were whipping - in. Passing the milepost Key was still in front, but a furlong further on she fell back, and Malto took up the running, while The Grafter moved up into second place. Then came The HypcoHst, .Paul Pry, Aeton, Sunbury, Ayrshire, and Parthenopreus, the latter being on the rails and experiencing a difficulty in getting through his horses. Sweeping down to the home turn Parthenopteus managed to extricate himself and was lyiug fourth, just behind The Grafter, Paul Pry, and Rosella, the last-named being in a splendid position. For the first time durJDg the race the colors of Amberite became prominent, and the sou of Carbine was well up on the i outside. The Grafter led into the straight, I closely pursued by Amberite, Metford, Paul Pry, Pauthenopams, and Ayrshire, and at the distance Amberite supplanted The Grafter in the lead and won by a length from Parthenopteus, who came very fast in the kst furlong.

Time, 2min 37sec.

Amberite proved himself a great colt, but with a fair run the favorite would undoubtedly have won. The result came a3 a surprise to the Amberite party, who neglected the A.J.C. Derby winner on the course, though they had heavily backed him when the weights came out.
