Hypnotic Easily Outruns Her Rivals at Aqueduct Breezes Home Six Lengths Ahead Of Bridal Flower in Route Test AQUEDUCT, L. I., N. Y., June 14. Bel-air Studs Hypnotic, winner of the Coaching Club American Oaks, but a rather dismal performer before and since, made a parade of the ,000 Regal Lily Purse, mile and a sixteenth feature event at Aqueduct today. The daughter of Hypnotist n. Valkyr took the track at the start and breezed home six lengths before Col. E. R. Bradleys Bridal Flower, the even money favorite. C. V. Whitneys Mush Mush finished another half-dozen lengths away in third place, three lengths in advance of Ji B. Thealls Dorothy Brown, while Hal Price Headleys Forgetmenow completed the field 20 lengths farther back. Hypnotic was second choice in the wagering and paid .70 after giving Jimmy Stout an armchair ride. Her victory was liberally applauded by the crowd of 21,085 who turned out in gray, rather chilly weather. Form was good on the whole, with Medalist, Cuban Bomb and Skylighter rewarding the chalk players in the second, third and fourth races. The only real surprise through the feature was the victory of W. S. Homes Torotown in the opener. -The Johnstown gelding paid 6.40 and started a double for Home and trainer William Post that was completed when Skylighter captured the fourth event. Riding honors were evenly divided. There was little to the Regal Lily, Hypnotic going to the front before the small field reached the clubhouse turn and quickly widening out on her field. Forgetmenow was in second place for a half mile, but gave way to Bridal Flower, who gave vain pursuit , to the flying leader. Mush Mush was far back in the early stages, made a promising bid on the far turn, but was never a real thrpaf;.
