Tartar II. Loses Hawthorne Purse Through Ineligibility HAWTHORNE, Cicero, HI., May 15.— The stewards here today redistributed the purse awards of the third race at Lincoln Fields May 14, in a ruling today, through ineligibility of one of the entrants, the finding, however, not affecting the wagering on the race. The ruling read: "A protest having been properly filed in writing by O. and R. Pollock, owners of the horse, Dominion, against the horse, Tartar H., owned by T. Bougon, winner of the third race May 14, has been proclaimed valid by the stewards. " Tartar n. was claimed in Laurel, Maryland, on April 14, 1952, for ,500.00, and therefore he was ineligible to race for ,500.00 on May 14, under Maryland Rules of Racing which are recognized by the State of Dlinois. "Purse redistribution is as follows: Dominion, first money; Black Yankee, second money; Worcester, third money; Alabama Belle, fourth money. "The betting on the race in no way is affected."
