A horse was destroped and apprentice Eddie Yocum and jockey Willie McCadden injured in a spill that occurred mid-way of the stretch during the running of the second race at River Downs, which prior to the start, saw Epidown run away for a mile and one-half and then ordered withdrawn. McCadden was the first to go down for his mount Allanwood, who was destroyed, broke a leg when wrestling the lead from Uncle Peter. Yocum on El Mansur fell over the prostarte animal and M. J. Hay- cock slipped from Darby Depths saddle when attempting to avoid the spill. Rockwick was the winner of the six furlongs dash, with Uncle Peter and Unbeliever third. McCadden and Yocum were removed to the track infirmary, where a preliminary examination revealed their injuries not to be serious.
