Primate Primate Captures Captures Youthful Youthful Stakes; Stakes; Elaine Elaine Ruth Ruth Scores Scores Upset Upset at at Downs Downs Pareu Half Length Off Youkilis Miss Marie Eileen Disappoints in Feature as Victress Tallies Second Time in Three Tries By DON FAIR Staff Correspondent CHURCHILL DOWNS, Louisville, Ky., May 9. — Paul Youkilis Elaine Ruth, a homebred daughter of Burg-El-Arab and Dog Daze, streaked to a mildly surprising victory here today in the Startle Purse, which brought out a half dozen two-year-olds. Ridden by the veteran, Bill Garner, she won her second purse in three starts in vanquishing her Startle rivals and she held a half-length advantage at the end of the four and one-half furlongs over P. A. B. Widener III.s fast-finishing Pareu. Just a length away in third place was Brown Hotel Stables Ave, while Mrs. Harry Trot-seks favored Marie Eileen wound up a soundly beaten fourth. Elaine Ruth picked up 118 pounds and was clocked in a highly-creditable :53 for the Startle. Overlooked in the speculation by the majority of those present on this delightful afternoon, the Youkilis miss returned 4.60 straight. Choice Fades at Stretch Turn Elaine Ruth left the stalls with a short lead but she was quickly displaced by Marie Eileen, who moved up fast after the break. Ave also went right along during the initial quarter mile while the ultimate victress dropped back to third and Pareu occupied fourth position. Marie Eileen faded at the stretch turn and Ave quickly established a length margin over Elaine Ruth while Pareu began a game but futile bid from fourth and in the middle of the track. Elaine Ruth put Ave way inside the last sixteenth, then continued courageously to wtihstand Pareus belated challenge. Ave saved third passing the final marker while Marie Eileen was three lengths away. Henry Forrests Cotton Ginny and F. J. Letelliers Queen Apache followed in that order. Ideal weather and track conditions aided in bringing out another good crowd of approximately 8,500 spectators. The gathering was treated to rather formful, exciting sport, choices being much in the limelight during the initial half of the matinee. James C. Ellis Aunt Jayne Z., a four-year-old homebred filly, the get of Shaka-mak and Miss May R., raced to an impressive decision in the six-furlong fourth race, downing a half-dozen better-grade sprinters.

Mrs. H. J. Damms Scene One, a homebred son of Eight Thirty and Center Stage, made his first appearance under silks an auspicious event, driving to a well-deserved graduation victory in the five-furlong Discovery Purse, which opened the program. Sent right along by jockey Bill Hanka after the start of the juvenile dash, Scene One beat Raymond Ankenbauers homebred and favored Mock Battle by two lengths. Three lengths away, Mrs. Charles W. Jones Trenton Sand, also a homebred, save the third part of the purse, while Dave Fergusons Rigmarole ran fourth in the field of eight starters. Scene One carried 118 pounds over the firm course in 1:00% and he was held at 21 to 5 in the straight "tote" pool. P. O. Lewis Vinita Toney, handled by young Johnny Turner, won the second race at one mile from seven other ordinary platers and A. L. Birchs Good Heavens, ridden by Tommy Barrow, was a front-running victor in the third at the same distance, defeating eight rivals. Vinita Toney paid 23 to 10, while Good Heavens was favored at slightly more than even money.
