Son OHal Earns Fourth Straight Suffolk Purse Reaches Final Marker Three Lengths Before Shadows Pass BOSTON. Mass., June 29.— Son OHal, racing for Mrs. R. M. Buccola, ran his string of consecutive victories to four straight by taking the one mile of the Somerset Purse, co-feature on the program at Suffolk Downs today. The Halcyon colt came to the end of the trip three lengths in advance of the oft-claimed Shadows Pass, a former stable companion to the winner, now racing for W. I. Lunt. E. Siravos War Result, whose activities have been confined to sprints, finished third after having shown in front after going the opening six furlongs. Frankie Munden was astride Son OHal and this fellow rode with all his old time skill. He had the colt under punishment soon after the start and then steadied him along in pursuit of the pace. Rounding from the backstretch the Buccola colt began moving to the leaders on the outside. Shadows Pass and Peep Show were waging a duel for the lead and midway of the turn War Result moved up to join with the leaders. Into the stretch Son OHal had moved up so fast that he soon showed in front, coming out steadily. Shadows Pass still held on willingly to take his placing, although lacking the late speed delivered by the winner. The son of Halcyon has been improving steadily, having started out on his winning streak under a claiming tag of ,250. He has been stepped up steadily until today he was meeting the best field he has been pitted against thus far. The program brought out a week-day crowd of 8,642.
