Display wins the 1928 Toronto Autumn Cup Handicap

“TORONTO, Sept. 22 (Canadian Press). – Walter J. Salmon’s Display, the fast moving son of Fair Play, coasted home a length in front of a large field in the $10,000 Toronto Autumn Cup, a mile and a quarter event, in 2:08 flat. The Salmon star, cleverly ridden by Johnny Maiben, was much the best and won with considerable in reserve.

Back of Display came the Bell Farm’s Adamas, with Endless in the third position, half a length back and a length in front of Saxon.

Behind the four placed horses the others finished in this order: Gaffsman, Helen’s Babe, Wellet, Boom, Perlapides, Harry Baker, Sir Harry, Seth’s Hope, Old Times, Royal Watch, Mad Play and Edisto.

The scratching of Polls, Euphrates, Alan’s Bay, Noine, Grier of Spain and Sweepster still left a field of sixteen to contest the Autumn Cup.” (The New York Times, 09/23/1928)
