Come Come and and Go Go Routs Routs St. St. Charles Charles Foes; Foes; Tremont Tremont Easy Easy for for Unbeaten Unbeaten Jet Jet Pilot Pilot Winter Rules Next To Piatt Homebred Daughter of Epithet Shows Best Form on Sloppy Strip While Leading Throughout HAWTHORNE, Cicero, 111., June 12.— Thomas Piatts Come and Go, a four-year-old filly who captured the Kentucky Oaks and Ashland Stakes before she went wrong last year, made a long step towards regaining her best form when she asserted the class that usually goes with stakes winners when she easily romped off with the St. Charles Purse here this afternoon. Mrs. E. Langes Winter Rules gave a valiant effort to catch the flying leader, but was overmatched. Still he was much too good for the others while finishing three lengths off the lead and eight lengths ahead of the Woodview Stables Quibs Bally. A total of 9,406 hardy patrons braved the miserable weather to witness the sport, and the track, a holding type of slop, found many of the competitors unable to negotiate the footing during the afternoon. Freddie Smith guided the winning daughter of Epithet-Set Fast over the mile and one sixteenth distance in 1:48 and she accomplished the task in a manner that suggested she could have opened up several additional lengths over her rivals had her miniature jockey so elected. Smith in Saddle Smith, who does his best riding when astride a front-running thoroughbred, lost little time battling his way to the front and from there on home the others were unable to threaten. Blenette, a good mud-runner, took up the chase after the field settled away on the backstretch and Powdered Milk and Cherry Wine also made weak challenges. But as they moved into the far turn, it was Winter Rules who emerged from the pack with a quick thrust and for a few fleeting moments it appeared that his brilliant surge would overcome the pacemaker. Jockey Smith, however, had a running young mare under him, and just as Winter Rules seemed ready to close the gap, the winner was given her head and she pulled away. With the race obviously at his mercy, Smith again reached down for a strong hold during the final stages and he was merely coasting as he passed the winning post. H. J. Schmitz Bosage appeared unbeatable during the early running of the Wood-lawn Purse, which served as the secondary feature, but Steve Brooks met up with some unexpected opposition in the last sixteenth of a mile when the Hilltop Stock Farm 3 Continued on Page Four Unbeaten Jet Pilot Wins Tremont Stakes With Ease Continued from Page One "better one in the barn." At any rate, it is certain that there isnt a better young colt to show in public here this year. Jet Pilot has now started four times and has an unblemished record. His action and conformation give the impression that he will keep that record intact for some time to come. The colt added ,375 to earlier earnings of 1,240 today, but his richest opportunities are ahead of him. It is hardly likely that he will be seen again in the East before the Belmont Park fall meeting as he is being shipped to Chicago. Eddie Arcaro saved ground with Ralph Mcllvains Forfar, well-played second choice in the Foot Print purse that was fifth on the card, and whipped his way under the wire two lengths before Louis Rabinowitzs Okeetee, the pacemaker. Glenwood Farms Admirals Aide ran an even race to take third money, two and a half lengths back of the runner-up and three lengths before 1. R. Bradleys Beyond Reach.
