Apprentice Binder Rides First Two Winners of His Career FORT MIAMI, Maumee, Ohio, May 12.— An unheralded apprentice, Steve Binder, stole all the headlines from the leading riders at this track by scoring a double in the first three races of todays card. Binder, who was a non-winner at the start of the day, broke two maidens, when he had Mrs. E. Dupuis Silver Dome three lengths clear in the first race for his and the horses initial victory at any race track. The 18-year-old Brooklynite looked the part of a finished rider as he rated Easy Quero to a half length win in the third event of the day after saving ground all the way. Binder refused to become ruffled by the late charge of two horses and justified the confidence of his contract employer, Tom Humphrey, who saddled both winners. Binders two mounts were overlooked by the majority of the 1,419 patrons, with Silver Dome turning 1.20 and Easy Quero 2.80.
