Related Never Headed In Gloucester Triumph Widener Gelding Right at Home Oyer Sloppy Garden State Strip By WILLIAM PHILLIPS GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden* N. J., May 3.— Mrs. Peter A. B. Widener n.s Related this afternoon took the track at the start of the featured Gloucester Purse, and merrily splashed his way over the sloppy racing strip to never be seriously endangered while winning the six-furlong event by two lengths. The three-year-old son of Unbreakable and Polyphote was subjected to* strong hand pressure from his rider, William Bal-zaretti, and was never allowed to lag while holding E. K. Brysons Yarle in second position.. Yarle, in turn, responded near the end to gain a three-quarters length margin over the favored Broken Crown, who carried the silks of the Kenilworth Farm. Related was somewhat neglected by the public in their quest of a winner and he paid a rather surprising 430. His time for the six furlongs was. 1:13%, which was a fifth of a second slower than required by the older Mint OMorn in capturing the preceding event. Related, who finished behind Broken Crown in a recent encounter at Havre de Grace, obviously approved of the sloppy footing in the Gloucester. He was winning his first race in three starts this year, while last season he accounted for three allowance events, but failed to distinguish himself when meeting stakes company in the Garden State Park stakes. Balzaretti put forth an energetic performance astride the winner. Related was hustled into a clear command at once, and evenly held his opposition at bay while exerting himself to the finish. Yarle was always forwardly placed, and although un- j able to endanger the winner, responded to repulse Broken Crowns mild bid. Broken Crown appeared to have no excuse, being well placed throughout, and after looming as a threat rounding into the stretch, I weakened slightly coming to the wire.
