Mrs. Esther Weir Silks In Double at Delaware Sauchiehall and Koritza Score; Latter Is Candidate for Kent DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 15.— Mrs. Esther duPont Weir was represented by two consecutive winners here this afternoon when Sauchiehall and Koritza, both of whom were saddled by trainer Jim Ryan, accounted for the fifth and sixth events, respectively. Koritza, a Kent eligible, took down honors in the featured Bull Whip Purse, the official of which was delayed while the stewards held an inquiry. Koritzas victory was a front-running one and was at the direct expense of Mrs. Ellsworth H. Augustus Euclid, whose inability to stay outof trouble under Larney Hansman brought about the hearing held by the officials. The margin of .victory was two lengths, with Alan T. Clarkes King Mowlee another three lengths in arrears. Frank Bone handled Koritza, a 5.90 chance, and was accounting for his second race on the program, having won the third race with Lancer. The mile and a sixteenth time was 1:44%. The attendance was a bit low, with cloudy skies holding the crowd down to 9,851. The start of the Blue Whip Purse* was immediate and Koritza sprinted clear in the run to the turn. Just behind him were King Mowlee on the outside and Euclid along the rail. Hansman was already showing a bit of hesitation with Euclid, apparently uncertain whether to ease back at that point and circle King Mowlee. Euclid remained along the inside and made an effort to drive out of his precarious position near the half-mile ground, but had no chance and was taken up. This was what brought about the inquiry. While he failed to again seriously threaten Koritza, Euclid showed determination and was much better than the others, as King Mowlee held Lazy F Ranchs Coveted and Mrs. Fay Ingalls Babs Whey safe. *
