35 rivals over the difficult four
miles and 856 yards.
Battleship, a 40 to 1 shot, made
only two mistakes. The first was
at the caneil turn and the second on
the final jump. His fast finish, gain
ed from several years on the flat,
made up for the last, however. He
took the lead for the first time on
the second trip over Becher’s Brook
but lost it again at the canal turn
and trailed from there until his
great stretch finish.

Battleship was purchased as a
three-year-old from W. J. Stratton,
