For the first time, last Friday, an entire field of
eight horses paced the mile in under two minutes on a half-mile track. This is
equivalent to a field of eight track men running a mile in under four minutes.
The film-patrol photo shows the eight at Roosevelt Raceway as the winner, Adios
Butler, crossed the wire, equaling the world record of 1:57.4. Others are: No.
3, Apmat, 1:58.3: No. 8, False Step, 1:58.3: No. 1, Newport Admiral, 1:58.4;
No. 7, Tar Boy, 1:59; No. 2, Mr. Budlong, 1:59: No. 5 Stephan Smith, 1:59.1:
