AUSPICIOUS 1933 DEBUT ♦ Black Mammy Accounts for Purse in First Start. ■ Sun Memory Second in Exposition Park Hotel Purse at Aurora — Frigid Temperature. 9 AURORA, 111., May 9.— Black Mammy, making her first start of the season and which races for Mrs. S. Orr, gave a game-performance to account for the Exposition Park Hotel Purse, when she defeated such good ones as Sun Memory, Dr. Freeland, Nyack, Figuriste and Portcodine, which finished in the order named. These six good performers raced six furlongs and it was only after repulsing challenges from Dr. Freeland and Sun Memory that the daughter of Black Servant reached the end half a length to the good. Sun Memory was five lengths in front of Dr. Freeland. The winner, under the guidance of the diminutive R. Montgomery, was under mild pressure to keep pace with Dr. Freeland as they raced the first quarter and it was not until they reached the middle of the turn that the winner went to the front. Dr. Freeland did not give up, as he again drew up alongside of the victress and gave her an argument until well into the stretch and then Sun Memory came through with a bold bid. but Black Mammy held to her task and after a strenuous duel, shook off Sun Memory to win drawing away. DR. FREELAND UNLUCKY. Dr. Freeland might have given a better account of himself, but his rider lost both stirrups and this forced him to ease up in the final stages. The successful trio had the race between them, as none of the others ever figured seriously. The unseasonable weather, which has prevailed for the past ten days, continued today, but a more frigid atmosphere was in order and many of the patrons brought heavy blankets to keep them warm during the afternoon. The sun failed to break through the heavily laden skies. Favorites gave a good account of themselves, having the better of the argument in the first three races. Mud runners were in demand again as the heavy overnight rains drenched the course and the running time reveals the condition of the track. Morpnn, fleet daughter of Prince of Um-bria and Mormaw, turned in a game performance to register a win in the introductory dash which engaged seven juveniles for a test of four and one-half furlongs. The victress, under the colors of A. Pelleteri and trained by B. Hernandez, was held in reserve while Gold Rose and the highly regarded Adder fought it out for the lead. It was Gold Rose that gave way first and when she did, her opponents sped by her with such rapidity that she failed to share in the purse. Morprin moved up stoutly in the stretch and as they neared the end, overtook Adder which was enjoying a short lead. After indulging in a brief duel, the latter gave way to the winner and subsequently submitted to the belated rush of Convention. LINMAST DOUBLE WINNER. Linmast became a double winner at the meeting when he scored in a driving finish and was all out to best Old Bill, which raced to second place, with Miss Frisky third. The winner, in command from the break, had the decided advantage of racing in the firmer footing, while Old Bill had to work his way on the outside, but the old campaigner finished the stronger of the two and if the race had been much farther, he might have been returned the winner. Miss Frisky, which accounted for third place, forced the winner along at a good pace to the final eighth, where she tired. Forget Not. which was racing along in fourth place, came to grief after skidding for about twenty yards. He finally went down and, fortunately, apprentice Monte Parke escaped with a shaking up. Tadcaster chalked up his third win out of four starts when he scored easily in the third race, which engaged eight of the better grade sprinters. The winner had strong opposition for a quarter when Morsun raced head and head to well around the turn, but under mild urging the victor drew away and when he turned into the stretch, was enjoying a four lengths margin. While Morsun was giving way, Patsyette moved up to second place and then Sweet Lassie came on to dispose of the Lone Star Stable representative, which quit so badly that he finally Continued on twenty-third page..

Odd Star, strong second choice, was the victim of a hemorrhage during the running of the first quarter, which accounted for his disappointing performance. Saucy Maria, favorite for the fourth race, made good for the form players when she displayed gameness to reach the end a neck in advance of Chris. Paschen in a bristling struggle which ensued in the closing stages.

His having to use much exertion during the early racing took much out of him and, after taking a brief lead in the final stages, he failed to repulse the determined challenge of the winner, which staged a late rush which got the verdict. Atlas, which garnered the third part of the purse, set the pace, but was under occasional pressure to hold the coveted position as Beauty Bride raced in close attendance. However, Atlas managed to shake off Beauty Bride and then held on gamely while giving way to his successful opponents. ITon-winners in 1933 made up the contest in the three-quarters sixth race, which resulted in an easy win for Polyp, when he led home Tarpon, Sir John K. and five others. Apprentice Monte Parke lost no time sending the winner into command and, after shaking off Sir John K., drew away to win in handy fashion. Tarpon followed the winner to the line, three lengths back and five in front of Sir John K., which came again after dropping back. Polyp and Tarpon shared honors in the speculation. The latter had so much the worst of it by beginning slowly that he was much used reaching a forward position and when he reached contention had nothing left to offer Polyp opposition in the final stages. ♦
