Governor Harold Handley and a * thost of Hoosier racing fans were among the crowd of 4,546 which was entertained by the equestrian drills of the Indiana Qolor ♦ Guard between races and the popularity of the day insured its further continuance by the management of River Downs. t The Terrell Brothers had their days mixed up by a week for last Thursday was Kentucky Day here, but Ho Eight and Chief Genoa failed to show the amenities to * Indiana owners. Both horses had been shipped in from Detroit a short time ago ,and apparently found the River Downs strip to their Jiking. - Ho Eight was the first home under jockey »W. D. Lucas, holding a length margin at the close of the six-furlong sprint. Ho Eight was favored and paid .60. Chief eGnoa, a grand looking two-year-old, made it a" consecutive double for • trainer Dan Terrell, Jr., who switched to Chilean Jean Sanchez for the two-year-old 4 race. Chief Genoa came off the early pace to be a handy three-length winner while running the five furlongs in 1:00, which equals the fastest time of the meeting for that distance. » The gelded son of The Doge — Anita Gen paid .40 and combined with his stable- mate in a 9.80 Daily Double pay-off, which must have delighted the residents of x Chittlin City and surrounding areas.
