Romeo's victory cost the Fair 51,800 and, in the interest of having enough money left to buy more jugs, the track now barred the colt from the betting in the second heat. This time Romeo did not get the lead, but showed how much he wanted to by almost pulling George Sholty out of his sulky seat in his annoyance at the heavy traffic around him. When he finally did get room to move he moved well, winning in the excellent time of 1:59 3/5, as Good Time Boy finished second again and Bonjour Hanover third. In two straight heats, Romeo and Brooklyn had the Jug.
Afterward, out in the middle of the track, there were roses and ribbons and trophies and George Sholty getting kissed by Miss Ohio. It was, come to think of it, exactly what Milton and Seymour and Meyer and George and Hyman and Morton had expected. They had seen it all long ago when State Fair played on Flatbush Avenue.
