* The above race was according to handicap rules. The apparent winner, Palm Beach Days, was disqualified due to her failure to weigh in with the measurer thus moving Freda III into first place. The corrected speeds are omitted in favor of the real speeds since the corrected speeds do not alter the order of finish in any heat.
