Holds Eight-Length Margin on Gus Fan Good Monday Gathering of 7,889 at Lincoln Fields; Track Slowly Drying Out By J. J. MURPHY LINCOLN FIELDS, Crete, 111., June 7. A good-sized Monday gathering of 7,889 viewed an eight-race program- here this afternoon. The weather became rather humid after a light rain had fallen approaching post time for the first race. The La Porte Purse, a six-furlong dash for four-year-olds and up in the ,250-,500 claiming brackets, was the top attraction on the bill and was taken by Russell Ash-fords five-year-old Bugle Corps, who was second choice to Marion VanBergs Cow Town in the six-horse field. Bugle Corps, ridden by Al Popara, hero of Saturdays sport at this course, won by eight lengths and paid .50 in running the three-quarters in 1:15 on a slow drying out track. Cow Town might have been closer had he experienced better racing luck in the initial stages. He was away from the gate in fourth place and was in tight quarters when he attempted to get through an opening next to the rail nearing the far turn. He tried again rounding the bend but was unsuccessful and dropped about a dozen lengths back of the leaders. He was unable to close much ground, although finishing well to take third place. Second money went to Gus Fan. First Four Dashes at Five Furlongs Each of the first four races were dashes of five furlongs, and one favorite managed to take the top award. That was Black Gallant, who made a runaway of the fourth while carrying the silks of G. Rollie White of Brady, Texas. Jockey Jos Jessop made M no mistakes with Black Gallant, hustling 1 the colt to the front at once and having 1 him racing easily and four lengths to the good at the end. Black Gallant was bred by his owner, and had won a single purse in five starts prior to this afternoon. Watch Toy, owned by R. Baiocchi, took the opening event with William Carroll in the saddle. The five-year-old got to the front in the stretch, but was required to do his best in the closing stages when Effie W an outsider, came strongly. Fairn Square, the public choice, made the pace, but tired and finished fourth. E Z Eye, a war relic filly belonging to Emil Denemark, took her second consecutive purse at this meeting when she charged from behind in the stretch to win going away from Royal Charge in the third race. , -John Heckmann was the successful reins-Continued on Page Twenty-Fiye Bugle Corps Sprints to Easy Lincoln Fields Accounting Continued from Page One man and My Ethelyn, the favorite, was unplaced.
