Bone Escapes Injuries When Thrown at Start SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston. Mass., May 11. — Lolling, bearing the silks of the Wild Goose Farm, earned her initial victory of the season after a dozen previous attempts, by downing Ralph Lowes Jet Star in the sixth race of a featureless card at Suffolk Downs today. Three lengths separated the two leaders at the end of the mile and 70 yards test, with Hyharriet Stables Salerno another five lengths away in the show spot. In the fourth race, apprentice Frankie Bone, who has been unable to register a victory since his arrival here on Monday, continued to be plagued with bad luck as his mount, D. Poseys Chaldson, stumbled leaving the six-furlong chute. Bone managed to hang on long enough to allow the field to pass his mount, then fell heavily to the turf. Following an examination in the first aid room, it was announced „ that the countrys leading jockey was only shaken up arid would be able to resume riding tomorrow. Everglade Stables Rembird won the race over the favored Mr. Fox from the barn of Mrs. Keller. Rembird paid 3.60. Ideal racing weather was the order of the day for the 9,182 patrons who had little to cheer about as Jet Star was the sixth straight choice to fail. Lolling was a tepid second choice and paid 0.00, while being timed in 1:44% over the drying out track termed "slow."
