J 4 RENAISSANCE IN FRONT • Scores Ninth Success of Year in Ac- counting for Oak Park Purse. • Outlasts Knights Hope by a Head — Burning Up Beats Prince Heather by Nose for Minor Honors. — » DETROIT, Mich., June 21. — Renaissance, consistent six-year-old son of Master Charlie, won his ninth victory of the year in account-! ing for the Oak Park Purse, which was the principal race offered at Detroit here this afternoon. He was only a short head before the Huntington Stables Knights Hope at the end, but he was forced to turn in another of his game efforts to carry off major honors. Four lengths separated Knights Hope and Burning Up at the end, with the latter get-! ting up to beat Prince Heather by a nose for minor honors. A small field of seven started and Prince Heather was the big disappointment. In- stalled an 8 to 5 choice, Prince Heather was taken back repeatedly during the opening half mile and after reaching the stretch he tired steadily. Clyde Turk, who rode the fa- vorite, was suspended pending further inves- tigation of the race. Cloudy skies prevailed for the sport, but there was a good-sized crowd present. The racing strip was considered good. After being the chief cause of the long delay. Prince Heather began well and was saved when Knights Hope and Renaissance went out to show the way. Nearing the final three-eighths, the winner took com- mand, but was unable to draw away from Continued on fifteenth page. : t r f • j | I ■ ! 1 r J , • I ■ 1 • | ! 5 • | j 5 j . j g . | r i I J I 3 j . ;. _ i , a i . i s 1 i .

High Torque, which held third position for a half mile, stopped badly in the drive. Lee Hardy, leading two-year-old rider of the meeting, drove another long shot to vic- tory when E. E. Watts Panic Relief ac- counted for the maiden juvenile dash that opened the program. Second went to Billy I., with Peloria third. Hustling, the son of Panic to the front soon after the start, Hardy kept the colt under urging until reaching the stretch, and although Billy I. made up ground to be slightly more than a length in his wake at the end, Panic Relief had something left at the close of the five furlongs. Sun Asia, 17 to 10, dropped back rapidly after holding third position during the first quarter. W. E. Collins saddled another winner for Willis Sharpe Kilmer when Killtown was easily the best of ten other three- and four- year-old maidens that contested the second race. Torch Maiden, slight favorite over the winner, was second, with third honors going to Phalarope. The three-year-old son of Blenheim, which was saved in his last effort to allow Sun Lightship to graduate from the maiden ranks, demonstrated that he was equally at home over a dry as well as muddy track. Karl Horvath had the winner in the lead soon after the start and, disposing of Red Garter during the run to the far turn, ha reached the finish well in hand and three and a half lengths before Torch Maiden. Th« latter was forced to work her way up stead- ily, but in disposing of the badly ridden Phalarope, she swerved to the inside and forced Sammy Renick to ease up the well supported Pharamond II. gelding, The first spectacular finish of the afternoon came in the third race when Oderlc, Nell Kuhlman and Peggys Peggy reached the end of the six furlongs in alignment. Oderic, with the veteran Willie Carroll aboard, was a neck before Nell Kuhlman, which lasted to beat Peggys Peggy by a nose for second. Carroll put up one of his old-time rides astride the A. J. Halliwell seven-year-old, sent the winner to the front during the opening sixteenth, and kept going to the end. Platers, three-year-olds from the lowei class, furnished the sport for the fourth race, also at six furlongs, and it resulted in the first popular score of the afternoon when G. Raushs Uptodate was an easy winner. Ridden by Charles Stevenson, she reached the finish two lengths before Play Book, which enjoyed the same advantage over Burning Billows at the end. Nine of this age started, and the race provided a fine battle between J. Johnson, a recent arrival here, and Stevenson, wha is the leading rider of the meeting. John-I son was astride Play Book and, although th« Bookbinder gelding was unable to match strides with the winner, which raced hinj into defeat after a half mile, Johnson kept his mount going in fine style, and he only j gave up the task nearing the end. Speed Queen and Burning Billows, which held th« others safe from the start, reached the end with Burning Billows nose in front A casualty and suspension came with th« three-quarters sixth race, which went to the lightly regarded Steponit, Fingal was second and Dancing Boy third. The winner, showing improvement over his last effort, worked his way forward steadily and, after disposing of Jane Ellen, drew away to be an easy win- ner. Rempli was cut dowii shortly after the break, and E. T. Moore, who rode Ana X., was suspended for ten days for coming over on Rapid Prince approaching tha fat turn,
