Fancy Dream Triumphs In Detroit Juvenile Test Hits Wire Three and One-Half Lengths Clear of Pennwoven DETROIT, Mich., June 1.— James Paddocks Fancy Dream, a juvenile hiss good enough to win a pair of races during her New Orleans winter campaign, sped to a popular victory here today in the -third event, one of the better attractions on a fair card. Hustled into command by Eldon Coffman at the start of the four and one-half furlongs dash, the Louisville-owned winner held a three and one-half lengths margin over her nearest rival, M. E. Tteizens Pennwoven, at the wire. Peter A. Markeys Blendid Music earned the short end of the purse another length and one-quarter back, while Pollard and Harkins Pixie Pat saved fourth in the band of seven two-year-old starters. Fancy Dream, bay daughter of Holdall and Idle Dream, was the even money choice with the crowd of approximately 8,000 spectators. Running time over the fast strip was :54%. Fancy dream held a clear lead when she settled in the home lane, but Coffman took no changes and plied whip and boot in vigorous fashion, his mount responding well enough to maintain a good advantage to the finish.

Verano lacked early foot, but moved up boldly approaching the stretch and then came on to catch Mrs. Marion Bartons pacemaker, Golden Count, and win going away. The latter, favorite in the sprint, was an easy second over All Wellmans Winstay, his margin being four and one-half lengths. Verano, a winner at Gulfstream Park in April, stepped, the three-quarters in 1:12% and paid .40 straight. Slipper Satin, a member of the Grace* Kosiba Stable, responded to a hustling ride from Lois C. Cook and annexed the second, event, also at six furlongs. The locally-owned victress, a four-year-old daughter of Blue Pair and Happy Miss, was. under vigorous urging through the stretch to beat Carl Grahams Byronic, second by a half- length in advance of Mrs. W. O. Briggs Try Ike, pacemaker for the greater part of the trip. Fourth money in the field of* seven went to William Zakoors Chief John O. Slipper Satin, timed in a creditable 1:11%, was second choice in the tote at 22 to 5 and, coupled with Verano in the*,
