—————— i Cohty Bay Outdistances Foes; Finishes 17 Lengths in Front Flannery Homebred Revels * In Sloppy Going at Garden State; By Jupiter Is Second J GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May 20. — Mrs. Vaughan Plannerys Conty Bay established himself as a "running fool" over a sloppy racing strip today when he won the one mile and a sixteenth Pitts-grove Purse by the longest margin registered during this meeting. Seventeen lengths separated him from the favorite, Jay Cee Farms By Jupiter, who tired of chasing Conty Bay but still remained two lengths in front of Sycamore Farms Sea Admiral, with the remaining starters in the field of nine strung out Indian file for some 50 lengths back to the last horse, F. Eugene Dixon, Jrs Metal Mike. Conty Bay, who won the only other race of his career over a muddy track this spring at Laurel, was a. big "overlay" as the result indicated, returning a mutuel of 0.40. The three-year-old colt, a son of Lochinvar and Cicatrice, by War Hero, shouldered 122 pounds for his front-running score that was easily made in 1:46%. Jockey Walter Mann rode him faultlessly and, although he roused him with three timed strokes from the whip coming to the furlong marker, there was still plenty of speed in reserve at the end. 16,000 Brave Inclement Weather Todays was the worst weather of the meeting, but still the crowd numbered nearly 16,000. It was rainy, dismal and cold, while the racing strip was a brown sheet of water. Agrippa, racing for F. A. Piarulli, came froma distant last to be first for an upset victory in the sixth race that called for a pay-off of 5.60. Saving a world of ground on the turn under the piloting of apprentice Freddie Ryan, the three-year-old Attention colt charged fast through the stretch to catch and pass H. A. Kimballs Joe E. Lewis by a neck at the end of the six furlongs. J. J. Nolans Roseada, who was the favorite and early pacemaker, faltered to be another half dozen lengths behind. G. M. Cohens Jess Linthicum outsprinted his small band of rivals in the Pitman Rotary Purse from the first stride to the last, arriving at the finish of the six furlongs being eased up by jockey Nick Shuk. A. J. Crevolins Rado Kid was two and a half lengths behind the winner and better than three lengths in front of Mrs. Nora A. Mikells Repetoire, who was a stern disappointment to the favorite players. Repetoire was simply outrun today and was no match at any stage for the winner, who is known as an outstanding "off" track performer. Jess Linthicum was second choice and he paid .60 after spinning the sprint in an excellent 1:11%.
