Abstract Finds Winning Stride at Suffolk Downs Defeats Lambent to Qualify For Massachusetts Handicap By AVERY BROWN Staff Correspondent SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., June 6. — Cobbles Stables Abstract may have earned himself a starting berth in next weeks Massachusetts Handicap by defeating five rivals in the mile and a sixteenth Cedar Glenn Purse here this afternoon. The five-year-old son of Isolater established the pace under a well-rated ride from Gene. Pederson and drew out to a length and a half margin over onrush-ing Lambent from Double M Farm. Phil Schwartzs Charleston was third, four lengths back of "the runner-up and three parts of a length before Anthony Cataldos Tilenny. Ralph Lowes Regal and Mrs. True Davis, Jr.s, De Luxe, completed the field. * It was apparent at the start of the Cedar Glenn that none of the sextet was going to establish a rapid pace and because all were taking back it was Pedersons choice to take command. Tilenny was sent between horses on the first turn to gain a forward position alongside Regal a length back of the leaders. Meanwhile Charleston, Lambent and De Luxe were following In--dian fashion all under stout restraint. Passing the half-mile pole, Tillenny passed Abstract, but still was reluctant to go on and before the turn out of the back-stretch was negotiated, Abstract again was to the fore. This time Pederson called on his charge and he quickly opened up a three-length advantage which was too much for Tilenny under his 122 pounds. Charleston made a run at the leader entering the stretch and after failing to cut the margin of the leader, began to wilt as Lambent made his run along the inside. Pederson took no chances of the leader getting late and was applying his whip steadily through the final furiong. Apprentice Ralph Borgemenke came out of a slump he has been having of late and rode a consecutive triple beginning with Dimit in the third race. Speedy Baby, winner of the fourth, and Sickle Sue were his other winning mounts. The 11,272 patrons in attendance were treated to formful racing as favorites took the first three events.
