ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the John B. Campbell Handicap, a horse track competition in New York. There were eighteen running horses, but the racecourse was not wide enough so the field was split to be fair. In the first division, the Calumet Farm's Best Turn horse caught the pacemaker horse of Friend. In the second division, Mitey Prince, the horse owned by Baird C. Brittingham, has worn down Distinctive and then pulled away in the last furlong to go under the wire by seven lengths.
