Cinda, Dixie Flyer Win at Monmouth Tally in Divided Regret Handicap Shouse Filly Makes Good as Choice; Duntreath Mare Has Sickles Image in Her Wake By FRED GALIANI Staff Correspondent MONMOUTH PARK, Oceanport, N. J., June 21. — It was too much speed in the case of the first division of the Regret Handicap, Jouett Shouses Cinda taking the lead right at the break and just romping off from her rivals. At the finish she was three and one-half lengths to the good of E. M. OBriens Miss Degree and jockey Glenn Lasswell merely was waving the bat alongside of his mounts head. In third place, a length further back, came Mrs. T. J. Barrys Saucy Colleen. Cinda added immeasurably to her stature, racking up her sixth victory in seven starts and although Real Delight has been accorded all the sophomore filly honors so far they have yet to meet. Cinda was the favorite and returned to her backers after ripping off the six panels in 1:11% over a track that was labeled fast but was dampened by rain all afternoon. The second half of the Regret went to Duntreath Farms Dixie Flyer, who slipped through on the rail rounding to the stretch and outgamed Clarence Hartwicks Sickles Image to win by a length. This was the third time that Sickles Image had been beaten by Dixie Flyer, and both horses came in from the Detroit sector. Third in the race was S. G. Millers Bobs Betty. Dixie Flyer ran the six furlongs in just a tick slower than Cinda, covering the circuit in 1:11%. Owner Grissom was on hand to get the trophy from Walter T. Margetts, treasurer of the State of New Jersey. Grissom just purchased the horse for 5,000 at Detroit. Those who backed Dixie Flyer were rewarded at 3.40. Roberts Astride Dixie Flyer Porter Roberts was astride Dixie Flyer while owner Grissom merited to the tune of 1,800 as his share of the purse. Both sections of the Regret netted the same amount, nine starting in each division. Dixie Flyer was winning her second race in four starts this year. In her first start she beat Sickles Image, was second to her arch rival in a subsequent race, both at Detroit, and then ran out of the money at Aqueduct in her last trip to the starters stand. Mrs. Philip Iselin, wife of the treasurer of Monmouth Park, presented the plate to Frank W. Case, trainer of Cinda, after the running of the first division of the Regret, a race honoring the only filly to win the Kentucky Derby. For her owner, the victory was worth 1,800 and it brought the fillys earnings for the year to 8,175. Cinda was also the first favorite of the afternoon to win and the form players in the crowd of 21,264 had to wait until this race to cash a straight ticket. The day itself was unpleasant, it being cold and damp, with rain falling intermittently during the afternoon. The daughter of Occupy — Arden Lass was winning her fourth stake this year, adding the Regret to her previous Cherry Blossom, Colonial and Betsy Ross triumphs. Thus far this season she has been beaten once, when she attempted a mile and a sixteenth against colts in the Chesapeake. Cinda was topweight at 114 pounds in her section of the Regret, while Miss Degree got in with 108, one of which was overweight. As per custom, Cinda went to the front right at the start, with first Saucy Colleen trying to catch her and then Sweet Pick. Neither of them had much chance this afternoon as Lasswell had Cinda under full speed. As they rounded into the stretch, Cinda was a good three lengths in front and Lasswell pulled out his whip in anticipation of any use. But a quick glance assured him that competition was not brewing and he did not have any recourse to it. Miss Degree, who had run in the first flight most of the way, took second over the tiring Saucy Colleen, while Blue Moon, who was well supported, came from far back to finish fourth, although she had an excuse on the score of position. In tight quarters on the backstretch, she didnt get running until the final stages.
