BUNGA BUCK IS VICTORIOUS Scores His Second Straight Success at Devonshire Park in the Independence Handicap. WINDSOR, Ont., July 4. Bunga Buck came back with another good performance at Devonshire Tark this afternoon when he duplicated his victory of the opening day. He beat Bygone Days and Mainmast in a stirring finish in the Independence Handicap, a dasli of a mile and a sixteenth, to which 3,000 was added. Mainmast was asked to concede a lot of weight to everything in the race and his chances were not improved any when Parrington rushed him to the front and in the first three-quarters raced the lightweighted Ring into defeat. In the stretch the field bunched up, Bunga Buck and Bygone Days coming from behind, and as they flashed past the judges stand the first three-were heads apart and fighting it out. The Worthington. Stable scored a double with Fighting Cook and Alma Wasser. The latter came from behind in her race and in the stretch drive outgained Jewell V. D. and beat her by a half a length. Jimmie Daw, which came up from Kentucky as a likely youngster, made good ir the first race. He made all the pace, but had to be hard ridden in the last eighth 1 withstand the closing rush of Radical and Tricks. Harry B., which was coupled with Helen Aikin in the field in the second race, proved best of the band of platers that went to the post in that contest. He came from behind in the stretch and finishing fast got up to win by a length. Tan Son was second a neck in front of Lucky B.. which beat Camouflage by a nose for third. Fighting Cock made a show of her opponents in the third race. She went to the front with a rush after beginning a bit slowly and drew away into a commanding leal rounding the far turn.
