Kenilworth Handicap Taken By Believe in Big Upset Continued from Page One those who made her a pronounced favorite. Her winning margin was a length. Baby Gold, who was a good many lengths back for more than a half-mile, closed well enough to be second, while Royal Risk was a distant third. Patsy T. beat the others. S. D. Sidells St. Jock, making his first start of the year, may liave earned himself a place in the Steger Handicap field this week-end when he scored so easily in the six furlongs fourth race. With Robert Campbell riding him, the Sidell five-year-old raced with the leaders to the stretch and, taking command with a rush, drew out to score by six lengths. The battle for lesser portions of the purse was somewhat more heated, for Margaret T. got the place by only a head and Observer beat Juke Box only a neck for third money. The second race was a dash of five and a half furlongs for four-year-olds and older horses and it resulted in victory for Red Canter, owned by J. Kohout and guided by S. Brooks. Red Canter was never far away while Whosyourgal and Dridas battled each other for pacemaking honors and when they gave way in the homestretch the Kohout gelding forged to the front. Drawing out near the end he won by three lengths. Whosyourgal and Dridas eventually finished in a dead heat for fourth money second place going to Lady Stardust and third Cloe-Flight. Jockey Brooks rode his second winner when he drove J. M. Hutchins Rule Easy home in front in the third race, a dash of four and a half furlongs for maiden two-year-old fillies. She and Spirsilla waged a spirited duel from the beginning and at the wire were only a neck apart. Rule Easy was making good in her second trip to the post. Her stablemate, Blue Grail, was third and led home five other youngsters who rounded out the field.
