j High Scud Outdistances Four Delaware Rivals Draws Off to Fifteen-Length Score Oyer Pintor in Madison DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 9. — King Ranchs High Scud, prepping for the impending Kent and Leonard Richards Stakes, completely humiliated Montpeliers Pintor and three other sophomores while galloping to a 15-length victory in this afternoons featured Madison Purse. Pintor j finished second, two and one-half lengths before C. Mahlon Klines Brechin, a Delaware Oaks eligible. Completely outdistanced while completing the field were Walter J. Appels Kensington Ted and Holly Ridge Farms Vieni. High Scud, a three-year-old Bernbor-ough colt* was confidently and capably handled by Ira "Babe" Hanford, who [sported the same colors in which he became tha first apprentice rider to win the Kentucky Derby when he took that coveted race with Bold Venture in 1936. The winners time for the mile and one-sixteenth Madison was a commendable 1:44 Vs and he paid .60 while downing the 3 to 4 choice with a crowd of about 11,000. Although earning his initial purse of the year," High Scud had shown two excellent races at Garden State in recent weeks. On one occasion he dropped a head decision to King Jolie and in his other start he was. fourth behind the same colt in the Jersey Stakes. There was no King Jolie, nor a reasonably exact facsimile, in todays field and High Scud clearly demonstrated his superiority.; He hugged the rail to outrun Pintor for the lead rounding the first turn, then merely toyed with that one for five furlongs before rapidly drawing clear. Even though his margin was enormous, it is safe to say that High Scud could have won by an even more convincing margin had Hanford desired him to do so. Pintor faded badly in the late stages but was clearly better than Brechin, as that filly completely outclassed Kensington Ted and Vieni, neither of whom belonged in such company. The mile and one-sixteenth fifth race, which was won by James Yonts" Revel-On at 8.80, brought about considerable excitement, with jockey Jimmy DelVecchio being fortunate enough to escape uninjured following a spill from L. W. Jennings Cap-a-Pie. This three-year-old was knocked into the fence near the furlong pole, throwing DelVecchio high into the air. Phillip T. Connors Frolic, who caused the spill, was disqualified from fourth position, moving Mrs. P. A. B. Widener, LTs High Descent into that spot. Frolic and High Descent raced coupled but the latter was not* affected, in that the two horses race for different owners.
