NolaHashComesTh rough Along Rail to Triumph StabIemate,Game Miss, Sets Early Pace and, Aids in Bay State Score By AVERY BROWN Staff Correspondent SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., June 2.— Nola Hash, coupled with Contrary Jean as the Annalora and Terese entry, benefited as her stablemate set the pace in . todays renewal of the Bay State Kindergarten Stakes at Suffolks Downs, slipping along the rail to win the mad scramble as 11 two-year-olds charged through the stretch. The Hash — Devie filly sported a length and a quarter advantage as she passed the end of the five furlongs before Standale Farms Game Lady, also part of an entry with Homestead Stables Game Miss. C. R. Millers Dynastic, who was probably best as the race was run, finished third a neck back of the runner-up and a head before Mrs. B. "F. Listers Inlet Miss. e cloudy, sultry weather kept the crowd down to 18,232, but no sign of rain was forthcoming. A light breeze from out of the north made it fairly comfortable. Billie Fisk was astride the winning miss who needed 1:00% to get her victory over the fast racing strip. She earned ,840 of the ,625 gross purse. Walter Taylor sent Contrary Jean away winging from her inside position in the Bay State and immediately opened a clear advantage over Game Lady, Miss Huett and Nome. Box Trade was not far off the leaders as they reached the turn neari the three-furlong Bole and came between horses to enter contention. Taylor kept urging the leader although the closest* trio was breathing at his. neck midway on the turn. Miss Huett was pressing as Contrary Jean made the turn near the quarter pole and Nome appeared to have had enough with Box Trade looking for racing room. The inexperience of apprentice Richard Villareal may have hurt his chances as he drove up close behind the leader as that one began to tire, j Dynastic made his move on the outside-before reaching the bend and it appeared that the colt was going at full stride and was unable to make the turn in high gear. His move carried him to the outer rail and it appeared he was hopelessly .out of contention as the scramble began. Contrary Jean had completed her part and the ultimate winner moved quickly under good horsemanship from Fisk to seek the rail. Inlet Miss also came through with Nola Hash but was unable to match stride and Fisk kept his charge under steady pressure to draw clear. When Dynastic went to the outside fence it appeared anyone of a half dozen would be the victor as they charged past the furlong pole. Box Trade had been eliminated along with Contrary Jean at that point. Game Lady proved a stayer and kept moving with steady stride, but failed to have the necessary stamina to go along with Nola Hash through the final yards.
