B. Carpenters Lady Liberty, a Texas-bred three-year-old daughter of Liberty Limited, defeated four older members of her sex in the Rose of Sharon Purse, which served as the feature of todays racing at Hawthorne. She ran the three-quarters of a mile in 1:1245 and, though that figure was not particularly impressive, it was fast enough to bring her home in front by a length and a quarter. Marion Collins, from the Donna-Ray Stable, was second, with third honors falling to Mrs. Leslie Thompsons Kesargo. A. Fri-i lots Anxiety and U. H. Plavans Urge Ma were the only others to oppose the Carpenter filly. Both Marion Collins and Urge Me outbroke Lady Liberty, but the latter quickly passed these mares and in running the first quarter in :2225, was in front at that marker by five lengths. She increased this advantage to six lengths by the time sha reached the end of the first half mile, which she covered in :463. but then she began to give ground before Marion Collins, who moved into second place entering the homa stretch. Kesargo Third Marion Collins gained fast on the Carpenter colorbearer in the final eighth and, had the race been a little farther, might have encompassed her defeat. As it was, a length and a quarter separated the pair at the wire. In taking the place, Marion Collins beat Kesargo a length and a half. Anxiety was another length back In fourth place and then came Urge Me, tiring badly and five more lengths away. Lady Liberty, handled by F. A. Smith, was a big favorite with the large crowd, sha having been backed into odds of S to 5. Burgoo Maid, claimed recently by Ruth Sidell of Chicago, earned a portion of her purchase price when she sprinted to a decisive victory in the Springfield Purse, fifth event on the card, and stepped the three-quarters of a mile in 1:1145 for the fastest performance of the meeting at the distance. The Sidell filly, guided by Anthony Sko-ronski. followed Bolo Tie over the early furlongs and then nearing the home stretch took command herself, drawing out in tha straightaway to win with six lengths to spare.
