AMERICAN OWNER TRIUMPHS I A. K. Macombers Silks Twice ; Successful at Royal Ascot on Friday. SPECIAL. CABLEGRAM LONDON, England, June 20.— A. K. Ma-comber, the American owner, scored a double victory at Royal Ascot this afternoon when Rose Prince carried his colors to victory ; in the Alexandra Stakes, and Golden Boss won the Kings Stand Stakes for him. Frank ONeill, the American jockey, rode Rose Prince to victory over Keror and Star Chamber in the Alexandra Stakes. Nine horses started in the race. Golden Boss was first of a field of eight to finish in the Kings , Stand Stakes. He carried 147 pounds. Sir Hedworth Meuxs Chosroes. a four-year-old son of Clarissimus and Tortor, won the Hardwicke Stakes from Invercauld and Fraeter. Sansovino, the Epsom Derby winner, finished fourth. The latter colt was away twelfth and was hard ridden during the first half mile. He raced his way into second position under pressure, but tired from his early efforts in the final drive. Sansovinos showing only serves to emphasize the general failure of the Derby horses in their recent races. All of them have been doing badly. S. H. Darlings Diagoras, a bay colt by Diadumenos — Fragonarda, captured the Windsor Castle Stakes for two-year-olds by a short head, while Sir William Cookes Blue Pete was victorious in the Jersey Stakes by a length and a half. Four horses started in the race and Obliterate finished last. Pan- i darus, carrying 100 pounds, won the Wok- | j ingham Stakes from Burnt Sienna, 103, and | Jarvie, 118. Twenty horses faced the barrier in this race. . A
