Lodi was on terms with the leaders six furlongs from home and Red Child was also within striking distance, when he broke badly. Storm fell at the top turn, leaving Lodi and Scotia to fight out an interesting finish. Lodi won by a length, and Vitella was fifty yards away third, just beating Red Child on the post.
