H. VanBergs Erazal, at at 3 for , in the opener, and W. E. Snyders y- first-time two-year-old starter, Miss LSS Walker, in the third at 4.50. The initial choice to score was Mrs. L L. rWagners Sir Jimmy, a .10 hazard fori or I the second. This fellow rushed up ap-proachinf P" : the stretch and, once he put Ut away the faltering Miss Flyer, he simply ,ly sauntered on to a five lengths lead while He holding El Valle safe. Third position went nt to Maechance. Time for the six furlongs gS I over a good track was 1:1525. A gathering of approximately 12.000 at- i. K | tended, and those in the crowd who backed | Erazal and Sir Jimmy in the Daily Double u_ received 84 for the investment.

She then drew ew off to arrive at the finish three lengths hs before Gypsy Actress, with Kendor third, id six lengths farther back. The favorite, Mandas First, showed nothing.
