renewal next Saturday started in the Flappers Purse over four and a half furlongs for twoyear old fillies The winner turned up in W E Hupps firsttime starter Reveries Gal a halfsister to Alchemy from High Time Reveries She won with something in re serve and a considerable distance in advance of Paulina L with Gloria Aspin outstaying Miss Lee for third place placeIn In the early stages Miss Lee held a slight advantage but Reveries Gal was running out slightly around the turns and when the latter reached the stretch she quickly dis ¬ posed of the leaders and was drawing away from Paulina L at the end Paulina L was in closest pursuit of the early leaders and enjoyed a brief lead at the head of the stretch stretchKanawha Kanawha from the stable of W E Caskey Jr and last year regarded as an outstanding prospect among the twoyearolds accounted for the first purse of his career when he led home Lepanto Barabbas and eight other maiden threeyearolds and older ones in the Walnut Hills Purse This race was over threequarters and was ran as the fourth The winner made his way into the lead soon after the start and after racing under re ¬ straint for the first quarter began to draw away fast leaving the bacu stretch Making the stretch turn he was five lengths clear of his closest opponent and the end of the race found him four lengths in front Behind the winner Lepanto and Barabbas the latter running coupled with Belle of Ky as the favored entry of the Idle Hour Farm waged a furious fight for second place which ultimately went to Lepanto The latters be ¬ lated rush proved just a bit too much for Barabbas although the Idle Hour colt lost much ground when forced vide at the stretch turn and with better luck on the turns prob ¬ ably would have taken second place placeSEA SEA LION IX FRONT FRONTThe The Audley Farms Sea Lion a son of Man o War Sea Puss was winner in the opening race at threequarters and for which a dozen maidens from among the older horses accepted Sea Lion hard hustled by W Crump almost the entire race scored his initial win by a length and a half over Cirvenna with Joyland third In the late stages of the stretch the winner showed a desire to sulk but Crumps vigorous handling had the desired effect and he continued along alongwith with sufficient speed to keep out of danger Cirvenna and Joyland figured in a spirited duel for second place the former taking the place by inches John William II a much fancied starter had to close an immense gap to finish in fourth place after being taken back immediately after the start in which he was away well wellThe The Audley Farm followed its success in the inaugural number with another win in the second race which fell to Jessica also handled by Crump This youngster was win ¬ ner in a driving finish with Polly Poker Junie and Nine Dollars and six of the other seven starters were fairly well bunched and not far off the mentioned quartet at the finish Myth which attracted a fairly liberal measure of support was the only one to finish far out of contention She was caught in a bad jam soon after the Ktart and in almost falling lost so much ground that she had no chance and jockey C Allen did not urge her after the first quarter quarterJessica Jessica after following Polly Pokers pace to the last eighth was able to wear down the early leader in the later racing and win by a neck Polly Poker began tiring badly after reaching the last eighth Junie which finished third was probably best as she finished fastest of all after bolting far out in the track at the stretch turn turnRacing Racing into the lead soon after the start Mrs H Chambers Resolute led for the one mile and onesixteenth of the third race to win by a length from Bobbie Shea at the end Third place fell to My Eva a for ¬ ward factor for the entire distance and beaten by the smallest possible distance for second place In the first threequarters Antiquarian and Forbearance made a vain attempt to overtake the winner and after reaching the stretch turn they began to tire and ultimately surrendered their posi ¬ tions to Bobbie Shea and My Eva The winner was well ridden by Stretton StrettonThe The fiveyearold Pandosto took into camp five other capable platers in the fifth race which was contested over a mile and seventy yards After following Moms Boy and Star beck to the stretch the winner came through between them and after quickly disposing of Moms Boy drew away from Starbeck when the latter began to tire At the fin ¬ ish Pandosto had a winning margin of one and onehalf lengths and was racing well under Crump It was the latters third win ¬ ning mount of the day Coming with a rush in the last quarter Alloy got up for third place He began from the inside position and ning during which he could not keep up but the stretch found him gaining fast after having raced far out of it to the last turn turnThe The E B McLean stable furnished an ¬ other winner when Florenda proved best in the final race which brought out a field of eight and was decided at the end of one mile and a sixteenth Florenda ridden by T Pascuma was raced in a forward position from the start and after coming to the out ¬ side in the stretch easily shook off the tiring Dusty Mary and making a game finish re ¬ mained in advance of the fastfinishing Peggy Bledsoe The latter was forced to race very wide in the last threeeighths and was wearing the winner down Pretty Run by saving much ground in the last half mile accounted for third place
