Corinne T. Earns Second Purse of Detroit Meet Lasts to Defeat Pallis Royal By Three-Quarters of Length DETROIT,i Mich, June 19. — Sidney I. Crews Corinne T., a chestnut daughter of Jamestown and Curfew Time, became a double winner at the current meeting when she vanquished seven two-year-old rivals here today in the five-furlong second race, one of the better offerings on the card. Hustled right along from the start of the dash by Gerald Champagne, the Crew filly lasted to take a three-quarters length: verdict from Sharpe and Mullens Pallis Royal, who was second by a nose before Samuel Segrettos New Orleans-owned Lady Pomp. Corinne T., who won her previous start here at four and one-half furlongs, had no serious difficulty in handling the five-eighths mile distance, stepping right along over the fast track in 1:00%. Installed an even money favorite by the majority of the crowd of 8,000 on hand this pleasant afternoon, Corinne T. was one of the more popular winners of the day. George Collins Thistle Air had good speed during the earlier part of the juvenile offering and he led Lady Pomp and Corinne T. during the run to the upper turn, relinquishing the pacemaking task to the ultimate winner after nearing the three-furlong pole. Corinne T. then entered the home lane with a clear advantage but she was under strong pressure thereafter to withstand Pallis Royals belated bid. The latter colt could not overtake tfie victress but had enough speed to nip Lady Pomp at the wire for the place. Thomas Piatts homebred Tobo, ridden by young Johnny Phillips, was a mildly surprising winner in the six furlongs opener, turning back eight other useful platers. Tobo finished strongly under urging to beat Marion H. VanBergs favored Albulil by three parte of a length while the latter saved second by a neck margin on Ray-jnond Clarks Air Target. Apprentice Phillips completed a saddle double when he captured the three-quarters mile third race with H. R. Pennys outsider, Parkview, who paid 5.80 straight. Parkview entered the stretch with a good lead and Phillips hand rode the brown son of Errard during the last * three-sixteenths mile, his mount scoring by two and one-half lengths. Buckley and Locklears Trio-graph and Mrs. Marion Bartons Duke Boswell engaged in a brisk duel for the place with the latter getting that portion of the purse by a short margin.
