TRAINER TRYONS BIG DAY Triumphs with a Double Victory at Tijuana Sunday. Motor Cops Defeat Unlookcd For F. G. Corley at Long Odds Don Dodge Breaks a Leg. SAN DIEGO, Cal., December 4. Lonnie Tryon was the whole show at Tijuana Sunday when he saddled both winners of the handicaps in Paisley and Catharine Marrone. The former is owned by Marvin Allen, a local sportsman, while Catharine Marrone carries the blue and white colors of J. II. McKay of Reno, Nev. It was the splendid training methods of Tryon that sent the two runnels to the post fit and ready to win. Paisley, a Nevada-bred two-year-old, a product of the Nevada Stock Farm, met a fast band of sprinters in the fifth race, at five and a half furlongs. Motor Cop was installed the favorite, but he was unable to cope with the extreme speed of Paisley, and at the end he was seven lengths behind the son of Atheling II. Delante was third. Catharine Marrone had no easy time of it in the sixth race, a handicap for all ages. She showed good speed throughout, but had to be ridden out to the last ounce by jockey Carter to head Captain Clover, the extreme outsider, and Halu. The finish was indeed a rousing one and it had the big crowd of spectators on their feet cheering like mad. A heavy rain fell Saturday night and the thoroughbreds that started yesterday raced over a track that was virtually a sea of mud. F. G. Corley stunned the talent when at odds of better than 22 to 1 he took the favorite. Hazel Dale, into camp in the fourth race, at five-eighths of a mile. The horse Don Dodge finished his racing career when he broke his leg in the concluding dash of the afternoon and fell just after the field had entered the stretch. Jockey J. Thomas was thrown heavily to the ground, but escaped without a scratch. 1I0IIACE LEItCn ROGUE OF OLD. Starter Harry Morrissey, whose barrier work up to date has been one of the features of the meeting, had his first bad start in the second race. In a measure it was not the fault of the starter, as Horace Lerch, which is notorious for his wheeling tactics, was the rogue that blocked Old McKenna and refused to start himself. Pete Ormes has been engaged to make engagements for jockeys P. Walls and A. Claver, the two J. K. L. Ross riders. The horses Leading Star, Incognance, "Vir-gie, Tutt, Jack Ledi and Horace Lerch have been placed on the schooling list. Jockey A. Moffatt is spending a ten-day enforced vacation on the ground by the orders of starter Harry Morrissey. John Ellerd, who formerly raced an extensive string of runners in the West, was an arrival here yesterday. Ellerd has amassed a big fortune in oil and his visit here is purely for pleasure. Henceforth jockey Scoville will search his laundry before sending it out. Yesterday he sent among his linen a soft shirt in the pocket of which he had 1922.sh00. The colored man who took the package was asked for an accounting of the lost money, but declared that he had not seen the same. However, upon being searched, 30 was found on his person and the man is now languishing in jail. .lockey E. Fator accepted his first mount here when he rode Double Eye in the first race. Horsemen here predict that when the Tijuana track dries out it will be faster than ever before in the history of the course.
