Heres Hube in Clear-Cut: Victory at Suffolk Downs : Dukes Gal Unable to Menace Fast Murray Hill Farm Colt in Sprint By AVERY BROWN Staff Correspondent SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., May 1. — Murray Hill Farms Heres Hube showed his heels to 10 rivals in the featured Barrington Purse at Suffolk Downs, as he sped to a length and a half score at the direct expense of Darling and Sims Dukes Gal. Another six lengths back, Tamarack Stables Bated Breath closed stoutly to finish a half length before George Babins Equihaze. Ideal weather at this seaside spot, attracted a crowd of 11,825 who installed Dukes Gal a 6 to 5 choice in the field for the six-furlong dash. It was only the second outing of the season for the triumphant Heres Hube, who preformed well in his sophomore year against the top three-year-olds in New England last year. Close observers of the race turned in by the son of Four Freedoms on April 25 were rewarded to the tune of 6.60 for todays victory. In that race last week, Heres Hube, forced a rapid pace until well into the stretch only to tire. The race served as a good tightener and the colt was "Hawkins hoss" today. Ridden by Leo Valdes, Heres Hube moved into contention leaving the backstretch, was taken to the outside to avoid jamming as four of the field bunched and once past the leaders bounced into a three-length ad-vantage, never to be menaced thereafter. In fact, Valdes had Heres Hube in hand as he crossed the finish line. As for Dukes Gal, she failed to show her usual early foot and consequently was caught in close quarters near the three-r_ eighths pole and had to be taken up sharply. Once back in stride, the daughter of Gallant Duke, closed well but was un-90 able to make up the lost ground and had to be content with the place award. Flaming Bush and Deeside were the early pacemakers in the Barrington but neither had the stamina to carry their speed the full distance, weakening through the stretch to finish fifth and seventh, respectively. Bated Breath, also a forward factor from the start, had to be taken up and sent to the outside early, then closed willingly to display good energy in the final furlong.
