De Luxe Romps Home Easy Winner at Suffolk Downs SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., May 12. — De Luxe, a Calumet Farm cast-off sporting the silks of True Davis, Jr., romped to a four and a half lengths triumph over Fritz J. Vollmers Infirst to account for the Boston Bay Purse at Suffolk Downs today before an off-day crowd of 10,082. A head separated the runner-up and B and B Stables Outland at the end of the mile and 70 yards run, with J. Lobian-cos Shoe Shine another neck back. The fashionably bred son of Bull Lea Nellie L. was installed a lukewarm choice for the feature and returned .20 to become the third successful favorite of the afternoon. Time for the test was 1:45% over a lightning-fast track. Apprentice Richard Lawless handled the long-striding colt faultlessly. Fr ankle Bone, who had sensational success at the recent Lincoln Downs meeting, finally shook off his jinx since arriving here Monday and picked up a winning mount in the second race when he scored with Pine Tree Farms Bobeck. The Pine Tree gelding was installed an odds-on choice, but Bone had to do his best to get the three-year-old down front a neck before Troy Road.
