: Enfilade Outclasses Her Three Rivals ; In Rosedale With Ten-Length Victory Colonel C.V. Whitneys Filly Wins Same Fixture That Her Namesake Won Back in 1917 JAMAICA, L. I.. N. Y.. May 31.— Another romantic chapter was added to the annals of the turf when Col. C. V. Whitneys Enfilade, named for a great filly of 28 years ago, repeated her namesakes feat in the ,000 added Rosedale Stakes, which headlined the card at Jamaica today. Old-timers in the crowd of 26,063 that saw the nimble-footed newcomer lead home three other juvenile fillies in this short dash, harkened back to the time when the original Enfilade, owned by Morton Schwartz annexed the 1917 renewal of the Rosedale. Only turf historians can reveal whether two fillies of the same name ever won the same stake before. Under the rules, a period of IS years must elapse before a horse can be named for one of the same moniker. The 1945 Enfilade may prove even a greater filly than the one that proved so successful in the long ago. For, though she was making her debut today, she displayed a turn of speed that was nothing short of electrifying to the throng. Moreover, she won with her ears pricking under Arnold Kirkland by 10 lengths. Had she been pressed, the home-bred daughter of Boojum— Enactment might have scored by 20 spans. No other juvenile shown so far I this spring has yet made more of an impression than the Whitneyite. It was no contest, this RosQdale, for Enfilade sewed it up in the first quarter mile by taking a three-length margin. She increased it gradually with ease until she was eased up at the end. She paid .80 and turned the run against a strong wind, Continued on Page Four Enfilade Outclasses Her Three Rosedale Opponents Continued from Page One in 1:0025. Her share of the prize was S3. 920 and it added another sparkling triumph for Whitney, whose colorbearers have performed remarkably well during the meeting. I Mrs. Floyd Wests Waymark was second, with Longchamps Farms Sarongirl third and Circle M Ranchs Sixtyminutes, the odds-on choice, a very bad last. Many in the audience booed Eddie Arcaro after the race but it was purely not the riders fault, as Sixtyminutes plainly lacked speed and never had a chance, anyway, against Enfilade.
