Trotsek Double By DON FAIR CHURCHILL DOWNS. Louisville, Ky., May 10. — Hasty House Farms Inseparable, who was making his first start since annexing the Louisville Handicap here last autumn, scored a mildly surprising victory today in the featured Challedon Purse. Smartly ridden by jockey Kenneth Church, Inseparable, a five-year-old gelded son of Unbreakable and Fairday, led for practically the entire seven furlongs and reached the finish a neck in advance of Carl Grahams hard-hitting Fancy Flyer. Slightly more than two lengths back, John Marschs Whirling Dough ran third, while Shady Brook Farms Clevelander was a steady-going fourth in the six-horse starting band.

Under the allowance conditions of the Challedon, Inseparable shouldered 116 pounds, which burden was four pounds less than that of Fancy Flyer, the starting high weight. Finding the muddy track to his advantage, the Hasty House Farm stakes winner completed his journey in 1:26% and, lightly regarded in the speculation, returned his backers 3.20 straight. Races in Middle of Track Clevelander had the highest speed away from the stalls, but Inseparable sprinted into command before going a furlong. He continued to show the way around the upper turn ami, after Almenow gave up the chase. Fancy Flyer moved up with a bold challenge.

Calumet Farms Plying Disc ran fifth, while Almenow gave way badly after his display of early foot and wound up last.

A torrential rain that visited the Louisville area late last night and early this morning left the Derby strip in muddy condition. The threat of further showers this afternoon undoubtedly altered attendance, but a crowd of 8,000 regular patrons was out for the sport which was formful and interesting. Yellmantown, a member of the Breezy Crest Stable and one of the best sophomore prospects to show here this spring, won his second race in as many local starts in capturing the Equipoise Purse. Sent to the front by jockey Earl J. Knapp soon after the start of the secondary attraction, Yellmantown, a well-conformed son of Chicuelo and Graduation, easily out-sprinted his seven three-year-old rivals, scoring by five lengths. D.

Mullen, Jr.s, Juniors Hobby, then came back in the five-furlong third to score a well-deserved verdict with Herbert K. Stevens Donnie Lee.
