Tides Early Speed Aids In Delaware Park Score Nydrie Filly Staves Off Closing Bids of My Nell and Easter Morn DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 19. — After scampering the opening half-mile in :45%, Nydrie Stables Tides lasted to win this afternoons featured Oak Grove Purse in 1:11% over Mrs. Nellie Annarinos My Nell. The latter was beaten one length and held a similar advantage over J. W. Y. Martins favored Easter Morn. Tides, a three-year-old daughter of Blenheim II. — Black Wave, was riden by Mike Caffarella and paid 0.80. Tides, winner of one of her four previous starts, showed sharp early speed to draw clear and skirt the inner rail like a hoop round a barrel. She wearied badly in the final test but was held together nicely by Caffarella to withstand the late bids. Backers of My Nell and Easter Morn in the crowd of about 9,000 had ample opportunity to cheer their charges on in the late stages but their efforts were fruitless. Bold Beauty, who had cut across sharply at the start, held the runner-up position to the stretch and gave way, although losing no ground to the lead. Easter Morn, winner of three consecutive races in Maryland and a 9 to 5 choice to beat her six rivals today, was ridden by Nick Shuk, who returned to action today following a 10-day suspension. Another rider to return to action was Charles Giv-ens, who earned honors in the opening event with Mrs. T. A. Randolphs Ascot, an .70 chance.
