Two Riders Hurt in Spill BRUSH, Colo., June 3.— Two riders were injured in a spill during the running of the sixth race here Saturday. Ray Sherry, who was astride Mr. Gib in this event, sent his mount to the front at once, then went to the outside to avoid a hole in the track and fell. Meanwhile, Murray Ridlen, who was astride Tincher, was moving up with his charge and they stumbled and fell over Mr. Gib. Sherry received a few bruises but Ridlen was not as fortunate. He was taken to the Ebenezer Hospital in Brush and several stitches were taken in his head. He apparently was kicked by the flying hoofs as all the contestants were jokeying for positions at the time which was about a sixteenth of a mile after the start.
