L. Kings Bolo Tie, scoring his second victory of the year, sprinted to a surprise victory in the Burnham Handicap which featured the Lincoln Fields Jockey Clubs program at Hawthorne this afternoon. Bolo Tie reached the end of the six furlongs three-quarters of a length in advance of his former stablemate Hyman Friedbergs Harriet Sue, as S. D. Sidells St. Jock finished a bang up third. Both Bolo Tie and Harriet Sue, the latter winner recently of the Steger Handicap, were bred by Fried-berg. Seven sprinters took part in the Burnham, Ben Endovinas Ruditaurus leading home the others. Bolo Tie, prominent from the start, saved ground and approaching the final quarter, forged to the front. He drew into the clear nearing the last eighth, but then had to be subjected to a sharp drive to hold his advantage. He was ridden by F. A. Smith. Harriet Sue, who was racing under top weight of 115 pounds, also had speed and when she got to the homestretch she too was vigorously handled, but she could not overtake her masculine rival to whom she was conceding nine pounds. Only Head Off Runner-Up St. Jock lacked early speed, but after swinging wide into the last quarter, began to move up and he missed second honors by only a head. His impost was 113 pounds. Ruditaurus was a good way back in fourth place. Two Tigers, who was expected to show more, was a distant trailer, all the way, evidently just refusing to extend himself. Bolo Tie, who ran the three-quarters in 1:1225, which was one of the fastest performances of the meeting at the distance, paid 9.80 for . Xen McNairs Dark Lad, who came out of three years retirement to win a race here a few days ago, came back with another victory in the fifth race, a test of six and a half furlongs for older horses. Ridden by jockey Higley, who was completing a double, Dark Lad forged to the front approaching the homestretch and protected his advantage the rest of the way. He won by a neck, while Observer beat Juke Box a nose for the place.
