Indian River Chase Delaware Headliner Rouge Dragon and Iron Shot, Georgetown One-Two, Top Field STANTON, Del., June 27. Steeplechasers hold the center of the stage here tomorrow in the last important jumping fixture of the meeting. Eight will clash over the two and a half miles route in the sixth running of the Indian River, worth ,000: Miss Ella Wideners Iron Shot, beaten favorite in the Georgetown a week ago, will be top weight of the field under 162 pounds, just one more than the assignment for M. A. Cushmans Rouge Dragon, winner of the Georgetown. In the Georgetown, Rouge Dragon carried 158 to 165 on Iron Shot, the last named trailing the field and failing to display speed at any stage of the race. However, Iron Shot was a good winner on several occasions in New York and doubtless will have strong support with the fans tossing out the one bad race here. Brookmeade Stables Greek Flag, 135; T. T. Motes Mad Policy, 37; W. H. Lipscombs" Mercator, 141; Mrs. E. duPont Weirs Rum Ration, 133; Rokeby Stables Caddie, 143, and Lt. Bayard Sharpes Knights Quest, 146, complete the field in the Indian River. Knights Quest, beaten narrowly in the Georgetown, is expected to be a stout factor all the way in the Indian River, while Mad Policy, third in the Georgetown, rates an outside chance in the opinion of most.
