MARGINS: 1/2 - 1 - 1/2
NOTE - All four jockeys had received orders to allow someone else to take the lead, thus all four held their horses and dared each other to set the pace. This resulted in a slow finishing time. Because of this, the 1891 renewal of the race has been dubbed The Walking Derby or The Funeral Procession .
