Westy Junior, rejuvenated son of Westy Hogan, which was acquired through the claiming route by H. C. Wolfe, won his seventh straight race and scored his most important triumph in annexing the Belle Isle Handicap, second of a dual attraction offered before 15,000 patrons under cloudy skies and over a lightning-fast racing strip at Detroit this afternoon. He reached the end of the six furlongs, which he covered in 1:11, within a fifth of a second of the track mark, and a neck before Garrett Watts home-bred Silyerette. The latter led Miney Myerson, from the Motor City Stable, and a stable-mate of the winner by the same distance for second. Born Happy was fourth with Preeminent, Billy Bee, Sun Monk, Rock X., which enjoyed favoritism, Marynell, Croon, Grand Rock, The Pelican and Reaping following the leaders to the finish in the named order. The winner garnered ,950 of the ,000 added prize, with Miney Myerson receiving 50 for finishing third. Due to the field of thirteen, Croon was forced to begin her task from outside of the stalls, and although she was the first in motion, the winner, which carried 102 pounds and was ridden by Gordon Arnold, lost little time in reaching the lead. Silver-ette was in closest pursuit, with Preeminent showing the way to Miney Myerson and the others. Leaving the back stretch, Miney Myerson drove into third place, and from then on was always best of the others. Arnold permitted the winner to establish a long lead after five-sixteenths, and the advantage proved very beneficial, for the horse tired rapidly in the last stages and was under strong urging in withstanding Silverette. Rock X., which enjoyed favoritism, was the big disappointment, carrying 114 pounds, one less than Billy Bee and one more than Preeminent.
