08/21/1898: Lieber Karl vs. Plaudit (Oakley Derby)

“Plaudit is a double derby winner. This afternoon he won new laurels by easily defeating Lieber Karl, who was the only starter against him in the great $10,000 derby at Oakley. Bannockburn and John Bright were withdrawn.

Burns on Lieber Karl sent his horse out to make the pace, and for the first time the two ran closely together. As they turned into the home-stretch Martin let Plaudit have his own way, and the great thoroughbred came down through the stretch in easy strides and crossed the wire a good half length to the good. Lieber Karl was doing his best, and looked tired out at the finish.” (The Atlanta Constitution, 05/22/1898)
