However, Hows time was the second fastest in the history of the Oaks, which has been won by the best fillies of the years since World War I. Delmans Presented Coaching Club Cup Robert E. Strawbridge, Jr., vice-president of the Coaching Club, presented Delman and Mrs. Delman with the Coaching Club cup in the winners circle after the Oaks, deputizing for William Woodward, The winners circle was as crowded as it has been within recent memory with friends of the shoe manufacturer owner.

Losing a plate in her last race must have caused that bad performance. She could do anything today. There was plenty of room to come through at the head of the stretch, so I thought Id save her some ground, but she could have gone any distance." Warren Mehrtens said that Kiss Me Kate, "ran a good race, but had no excuse." Bennie Green and Dave Gorman also said that Jacodema and Nothirdchance had no excuses, while Eric Guerin Continued on Page Thirty-Nine CCA. Oaks to How With Arcaro Up Delman Filly Tallies by Four At Belmont Park as Favored Kiss Me Kate Takes Place - Continued from Page One said that Sweet Talk went from a pull to a drive. She finished ninth. Sweet Talk was first away as the field for the Oaks left the gate far up the Widener chute, but Wisteria soon took command, while Kiss Me Kate was away slowly and How swerved in at the break, then was eased to the outside. Wisteria soon opened a three-length lead, followed by Jacodema, Rose Fern and Kiss Me Kate, who was rushed between horses to get to contention. Vulcania was not far away and it was a couple of lengths back to Sweet Talk. How was in ninth place as the field moved onto the main track and sped down the backstretch, but she was going easily on the outside. Nearing the far turn, it appeared that Kiss Me Kate might be caught in a switch, but she was able to avoid trouble and Wisteria went intothe turn a head before Jacodema, with Rose Fern, Vulcania and the favorite closely bunched. Arcaro saw a chance to get down on the rail with How, who was a little more than a length behind the leaders and took it. Wisteria Gives Way Wisteria ran out of wind between the turns, while Rose Fern also stopped. Jacodema and Kiss Me Kate were a head apart half way around the curve to the stretch, while Vulcania was right with them and How had dead aim on the leaders, a length and a half back. Curving for home, Jacodema went a trifle wide and Arcaro shot How through the opening. The Prince-quillo filly was in the lead as they straightened away at the three-sixteenths pole and rapidly widened her margin as Arcaro continued to give her a strong hand ride. Kiss Me Kate made a valiant effort, but was losing ground in the stretch, after being on the outside coming into the home lane. Jacodema ran a good race all the way, while Nothirdchance came from far back above the stretch turn and took fourth money irom vulcania in the final furlong. There was a brisg breeze behind the win-, ner through the stretch, which doesnt de-,tract too much from her final quarter in :25. The early fractions were comparatively slow, with the six furlongs in 1:13%, mile in 1:39. The pace picked up a bit after that. Christopher T. Chenerys Bryan G., who had been idle since February at Santa Anita, fought, for the lead all the way in the Col. Jay Purse that preceded the Oaks and pulled away slightly in the stretch to score by a length over Robert McG. Smiths Sagittarius, who raced with him from the start. Mrs. John Payson Adams Miche finished very fast to be third, a scant nose in arrears and a neck before A. G. Vander-bilts First Glance, who also finished fast. Bryan G. stepped the six furlongs in 1:10% and paid 3.40. The Blenheim n. colt completed a consecutive double for Atkinson, who had won the fourth event on Hushaby Baby.
