The third race of the day, the Cornwall Junior Short Handicap. No 3 is the red 'experimental' supercharged Riley driven by Sammy Davis which finished 2nd, the Riley no 10 was driven by 'S Bird' and no 5 is the Riley of Victor Gillow. The latter met with an unfortunate accident when a tyre burst and the wheel collapsed near the finish, causing the car to roll with Gillow still on board. He suffered severe lacerations to the head, but fortunately was not otherwise seriously hurt.
