TRINCHERA WINS FIFTH STRAIGHT AT H0MEW00D 51 ■ THREE DS SILKS SCORE ♦ Supreme Sweet Finishes Second and Flag Bearer Third. • Aurora Campaigners Have Big Day at Washington Park — Scimitar Earns Purse in Fourth. HOMEWOOD, 111., May 24.— Trinchera, unbeaten in his last four starts, made it five victories in a row when he won an allowance race over six furlongs, the main attraction on the program at Washington Park today. The young gelding, which races for the Texas-owned Three Ds Stock Farm, was ridden by jockey Gilbert Elston, and after remaining back of the leaders to the stretch, came fast to catch Supreme Sweet and Flag Bearer, and win by one length going away. Supreme Sweet and Flag Bearer finished second and third, respectively, and both were tiring. Trinchera, despite his previous record, was slightly overlooked in the field of eight that went postward. Betty Derr and Prince Tokalon were the favored ones, with Justinian coming in for some play. When the race began Flag Bearer, a quick beginner, forged to the front, to be followed by Supreme Sweet around the first turn. Racing around the stretch turn, Flag Bearer began to tire and Supreme Sweet took a good lead, but Trinchera, hard ridden by Elston, wore down the Superior Stable mare to win. Trinchera paid 4.00. NO FEATURE RACE. The program provided by the management this afternoon lacked an outstanding feature, but the fields had enough class to furnish good sport, and the weather was ideal. A crowd of about 7,500 witnessed the program which was run over a fast track. Horses that have been racing at Exposition Park fared well when they were successful in three of the earlier races. The colors of Mrs. Hal Price Headleys Beaumont Farm were carried to victory in the first race by Technique, a filly by Supremus — Cho Cho, while Fair Image, belonging to Hal Price Headley, and running companion of the winner, finished third. The pair was split by the favorite Lady Westy. Technique, under the handling of jockey Charley Landolt, was close to the pace from the start and, although dropping back slightly around the stretch bend, saved ground in the run home and won by over two lengths. Lady Westy was close up at all times, while Fair Image came from a distance back to finish fast. The distance was five furlongs. Portcodine, the favorite in the second race, was much the best, and making a show of his opponents, won easily. The colt, with Salazar in the saddle, went to the front early and, setting a good pace, drew away into a long lead on the stretch turn, never to be molested thereafter. Second money was earned by La Salle, which finished fast next to the rail, while Red Cross Sister, rather poorly ridden, got up in time to best Chu Chu for third money. Nine horses faced the barrier and the start was good for all but Major Lanphier. LUKE CONNELL SURPRISES. Luke Connell, an outsider, made a strong dash on the outside in the stretch to win the third race from a large band of two- year-olds. The gelding, which won at good odds during the Aurora meeting, only to run a couple of disappointing races later, showed improved form today and came from far back to take the honors. Campdore, al- ways well up, finished second and Stroll Along, well backed, was third. It was a five furlong sprint and the winner paid 7.44. Jockey J. Neel was in the saddle. Scimitar was the third straight horse from Exposition Park to be successful. After Portcodine and Luke Connell, both of which raced at Aurora, had scored victories, the eight-year-old son of Hourless came through with a victory in the fourth when he beat a good band over the mile and seventy yards distance. The gelding, always an erratic post actor, was on his bad behavior at the bar- rier, and was finally placed on the outside, but although outrun early, mowed down his opposition in the last quarter to score by Continued on second page. ! 1 i 1 i i • - 5 I j THREE DS SILKS SCORE I Continued from first page. a head from Mad Career. Third went to Durva, while Sunfire, one of the favorites, was fourth. Sunfire was shuffled back early f and made up much ground. Jockey C. King r had the mount on the winner, and it was s his first success of the meeting. Parties, winner of several races at Sportsmans Park, made good when she won the sixth race from a small band of stayers. Ridden with good judgment by jockey Mel-vin l Knight, she got to the front in the stretch and held Runar safe while Bunch 1 of Lillies finished third. The distance was s one and one-eighth miles. _
