Pensava and Joey Boy Score for Gavegnano Former Runs Six Furlongs in 1:11 And Mate Fifth of Second Slower r By WILLIAM PHILLIPS Staff Correspondent GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May 1. — John Gavegnano s Pensava was I a mighty sharp horse today as he came out 1 of winter retirement and overcame a minimum " of racing room midway the final turns to authoritatively draw away from 1 his field when clear for the stretch run 1 and was three lengths in front at the conclusion . of the featured Palmyra Purse. In the second race, trainer Tom J. Barry sent out the three-year-old Joey Boy for r his seasons debut to carry the Gavegnano 3 silks to an equally impressive score in the e fastest six furlongs run at the meeting up P to that event. Pensava lowered the mark » of his stablemate by one-fifth second to 0 run the six furlongs of the Palmyra over r a rapid racing strip in 1:11. Fernando Fernandez, who shared with h Gavegnano and Barry in Joey Boys triumph, also rode Pensava, who was second J choice with the goodly-sized crowd of about t 15,500, and paid 1.40. The skies were clear and the weather delightful. The attention was centered all on Pensava, but P. T. Connors Elope staged a a gallant finish after racing with the pace e to last for a head decision over Grand-view " Stables Up Beat and take second d money. The latter, gradually faded after r showing the most speed into the early y stretch, and finished three lengths clear ;r of the fourth horse, Winlochan Stables s Adopt. The speed of the field, Detective, Picture " Card, Up Beat and Elope, formed a a solid wall before Pensava rounding the " turns, with Fernandez having all he could a to hold his mount back. When they began n to disperse on the stretch turn, Pensava a was brought to the outside. He was set t down for his drive through the last three-sixteenths of a mile, and had no difficulty ; disposing of the opposition. His excellent t condition was further evident when he returned to the winners circle with a breath that would not have blown out a match. King Ranchs Energetic, arriving from " three unsuccessful outings at Jamaica, turned in the six furlongs in an even swifter 1:10% to account for the seventh h race. He won by two lengths over Mrs. s. C. A. Copes Bolo Mack, with John L. Mc-Knights Agrarian-U third. Jimmy Stout it was scoring a double for the afternoon n astride Energetic, who paid 0.60.
