Nells Boy, War Phar Win Co-Features at Delaware Mrs. Danny Shea Gains Double With Merry Sizzle, Jazerant DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 4.— William G. Helis, Jr.s Nells Boy and Blue Stone Farms War Phar won their respective divisions of this afternoons best offering, with the first named colt the more impressive while being timed in 1:12, which was four-fifths of a sectind faster than time registered by War Phar. A crowd of about 8,200 witnessed the program, conducted over a good track. The Helis colt, a son of Attention, was a prohibitive choice in the fourth race at .70 and, under Sam Boulmetis, reported six lengths plear of Sam Adelsons Tom Q., who was one length before Mrs. Chester A. Lyons Penocc. Nells Boy assumed command before completing the opening quarter-mile and merely toyed with his rivals while: increasing that advantage steadily. Tne sixth race brought the most action, with War Phar scoring .by almost a length over Alvin Untermyers Seaflash. The latter, however, was disqualified and placed last after having bothered Mrs. Esther duPont Weirs Koritza badly in early stretch, apparently knocking that filly against the inner rail. Koritza was officially placed second, with Alan T. Clarkes Ala Mowlee third. War Phar, a son of Easy Moh, was scoring his first victory since Laurel this past spring and his second in seven starts this year. He was the second choice to Seaflash and, under Fernando Fernandez, paid .80. Seaflash was meeting defeat for the first time in his career, having raced but twice previously and been an easy winner on each occasion, once by four lengths and the next time by 10 lengths. The colors of Mrs. Danny Shea were twice flown to victory on the program, in the second race atop Merry, Sizzle, a 5.20 longshot, and in the fifth race by Jazerant, a .00 favorite. On each occasion the horse was saddled by Mrs. Sheas husband and ridden by Antonio J. Fernandez. Jazerant, who graduated from the maiden ranks through his six-length victory, is a full-brother to the handicap winner, Turbine, who was bred by Shea at his Merryland Farm in Maryland. Both are from the mare, Lucky Jean. Jazerant is by Roman I
