Lights Up Victor at Jamaica As Three Rings Is Unplaced JAMAICA, L. I., N. Y., May 4.— George D. Wideners Lights Up, making his first start of the 51 season, was a "going away" winner of the featured Victorian Purse this afternoon, trouncing a fine field and drawing off at the end to hold a length and a quarters advantage over the vastly improved Mucho Mas, while Palestinian was four and a half lengths farther back in third place. Three Rings, an even money choice for the Victorian, wound up fourth, and never was a serious factor at any stage of the running. Completely overlooked in the wagering at odds of nearly 9 to 1, the chairman of The Jockey Clubs fine four-year-old son of Eight Thirty — Tedmelia, by Teddy, ran the first mile of the Victorian in 1:36%, and finished out the full mile and a sixteenth distance in 1:42%, fastest time of the current meeting. Following the finish of the Victorian, Three Rings and Lone Eagle, who finished fifth, both worked out a mile and a quarter as a preparation for their engagement in next Saturdays Gallant Fox Handicap.
