Bright Beauty was not a popular pick for best in show.[2] Most thought that best in show would be awarded to Haymarket Faultless.[2] Instead, Faultless took reserve winner, and the judges awarded Bright Beauty best in show.[2] The show was judged by Harry T. Peters, Theodore Offerman, and J. Willoughby Mitchell.[4]
