Owned by David Straus, retired Cincinnati tobacco merchant, the rugged eight-year-old gelded son of Psychic Bid — Black Crystal, stepped nimbly over the six and one-half furlong route in 1:18%, the second fastest time of the meeting, and was two lengths to the good at the finish. B. J. Baxs Sigma Kappa, the second choice, was in no manner any match for f,he flying leader, but she easily held Mrs. Phil Leons Sandstorm safe for the place, while L. O. Handleys Cherriko finished fourth in the field of ten. Held at odds-on in the wagering, Daily Trouble gave his supporters few reasons to worry, although he was unable to keep up with the early leaders. However, he was closer than usual under the careful handling of Al Bodiou, and when the latter gave the word the tough old gelding flew at the top ones, then drew away. Expediter Whips Old Kentuck Sigma Kappa shot out of the gate in good style and before she was half way down the stretch she had drawn into a short lead over Unchallenged and Iron City. The Bax speedster stepped up the tempo around the turn and drew into daylight advantage, but at that point Daily Trouble was beginning to find himself and before the field turned into the home lane it was obvious that he was going to be tough to handle. He collared Sigma Kappa near the eighth pole and Bodiou hustled him right along and he was drawing off at the end. Because of his fine effort, Daily Trouble looms as one of the favorites in Saturdays Lincoln Handicap, which will be contested at a mile and one-quarter. In the second half of the Lincolnwood Purse, the Woolford Farms Expediter came around his field at the head of the stretch, opened up a good gap, then held on well to stave off the closing bid of the Walmac Farms Old Kentuck, while J. P. Kampmeyers Reward took the show. Beaten far off in his only start of the meeting, Expediter was a running horse all the way today. He moved up gradually on the back stretch and then cut loose with a fine burst of speed at the turn into the stretch, and when he arrived at the pay-off line he was well in hand a length and a half to the good. Old Kentuck, the warm choice in the race, failed to show any early speed but came around his field at a great loss of ground and was running fast near the finish. Howard Wells and Al Bodiou, who aided in Daily Troubles victory, proved the winning trainer-jockey team in the sixth for their second scores of the afternoon when Fishback and Fogartys Faithful More was up in the last stride to gain a neck decision over Mrs. Gaals Catchweista, with Dix-ianas May Fly third. F. W. Gablestown repeated his recent fine performance when he smothered a small field of two-year-olds in the fourth, a five furlong dash that was run in 1:00%, with a front-running victory.
