THE RACE TRACK: A Plate for the Dancer

Minor, Audax
June 1964
New Yorker;6/27/1964, Vol. 40 Issue 19, p78
The article focuses on Northern Dancer as he won the horse racing Queen's Plate. He came out of the stall gate less nimbly than he had in any previous race and he was surrounded by other runners. He was lengths behind the leaders and going around the first turn he got completely boxed in. There was a roar from the stand as Northern dancer began to move up and a louder one when he took the lead three furlongs from home and kept on going.
