Easy Quero Wins Second Straight at Fairmount Favorite Count Foray Trails Davis Colt to Wire in Dash COLLINSVILLE, 111., June 23.— Splashing his way over a sloppy track. Easy Quero, two-year-old son of Ted Easy and Mosquero. earned his second straight victory at the meeting when he made every post a winning one in the four and one-half furlongs fourth race at Fairmount Park this afternoon. The Mrs. J. Davis representative, ridden by the veteran Joe Dyer, bested Earl B. Smiths Count Foray, the favorite, Haddix and Kinkeads Our Risk and six other youngsters. Our Risk and Ever Message beat the Davis colorbearer out of the gate but Dyer soon had the unsexed son of Ted Easy in stride and rushed to the front with a fine burst of speed after the start, opening a three lengths lead over Count Foray, who also moved up fast after a slow beginning. After assuming the lead Dyer took a good hold of the ultimate winner and was well rated, but he began to shorten his stride in the last 20 yards and G. McLeod had Count Foray in his best stride and the favorite was wearing down the winner in the late stages but was not quite up to the , task as he lost the decision by a length. Count Foray was two lengths before Our i Risk, the latter holding on gamely to get a nose decision over the fast-closing Harv i Aethel. Our Risk might have given a better account of himself as the son of Risk u I us as shuffled back soon after the start and after getting in the clear closed itfflMWj rtnd was making up ground on the 1 Itadd .. although he was being pressed at t MM BOd by Harv Aethel. j Sweet Beau, Ever Message, Katys Deb, ; Piffil Pilot and Jleanor Van made up the 1 balance of the .field and finished in the i o/flei named.
