POLLARD COLORS IN FRONT • Hawaiian-Bred Uluniu Takes Feature at Long Branch. « Ideal Weather and Good Program Attracts Big Crowd — Bushman Wins the Third at Long Odds. 1 TORONTO, Ont., June 9.— Uluniu, the Hawaiian-bred son of Rodgers and Assagais Christine, which races for Mrs. Ray Pollard, showed a return to his best form to account for the main race on todays program at Long Branch. Sister Zoe, racing for the Mobile sportsman, H. C. Murnan, was second, beaten a nose for the major portion of the purse. The show portion of the purse fell to C. V. Whitneys Banderlog, with Deedie heading the two others, Louis Merry-man and Chosen Pal, which finished in the order named. Apprentice M. Clancy rode a confident race on the Pollard starter, reserving him in close attendance of Sister Zoe. Leaving the back stretch, Uluniu moved up and appeared ready to take the lead when Riley met the move and increased his lead with Sister Zoe. When the stretch was reached Sister Zoe had increased her margin to a length and a half. It was then that Clancy went to work in earnest on the outlander. Uluniu responded determinedly to his riders call and, cutting down the leaders advantage with every stride, managed to get his nose down in front in the final strides. Sister Zoe had an advantage of more than a length over the Whitney three-year-old, which landed third. Though there was no outstanding attraction down for decision at Long Branch Thursday, it was a well balanced card racing secretary Wash Norvell provided. Ideal weather, tempered by a mild breeze, prevailed, and the track was at its best. Bald Crest, from the Erindale Stable and ridden by C. Ralls, was best of the Canadian-bred juveniles that met in the opening five furlongs dash. Heap Good, racing for J. C. Fletcher, finished second, and third place fell to J. Cattarinichs Hollandaise. Rompridge, the odds-on choice, proved a bitter disappointment to his backers when the son of The Romp had to be content with fourth place. The five furlongs track record was equalled in the second dash when Broad Lights covered the distance in 1:013 after Continued on twenty-first page. i I 1 j I I I » « POLLARD COLORS IN FRONT Continued from first page. leading for every inch of the way. New Sun. coupled with Slapstick as the C. V. Whitney entry, finished second and Lady Chase earned third for the Tranquility Farm. There was an upset in the third when Bushman was winner over Toki, and Al- lanah landed the show position. Bushman, after working his way into a contending position on the outside, was taken to the outside in the stretch. The Wilderness colt finished with a splendid burst of speed and soon wore down the leaders and was draw- ing away all through the late stages. • 1
