Southarlington Length and One-Half Hempstead Victor Over Paper Tiger Clark Runner Makes Pace * Throughout Most of Mile Route; Bradley Is Third By BOB HORWOOD Staff Correspondent BELMONT PARK, Elmont L. I.. N. Y.. May 9. — Leading all but the first few strides of a swift mile, J. Ross Clark. II s Southarlington captured the featured Hempstead Handicap here today by a length and a half over Ethel D. Jacobs Paper Tiger, who closed willingly, but without seriously menacing the winner. It was five lengths back to Mrs. C. O. Iselins Bradley, who led Lester Manor Stables Affrighted by the same margin. Bill Boland, who was completing a double, rode Southarlington. who paid .50 to those in the crowd of 22,877 who made him second choice in the wagering. The son of Errard — Huldah J., by Sir Lancelot, stepped the mile in a creditable 1:3635 over a fast track. Affrighted was fust out of the gate but was immediately taken back by Leon Butt-ler, while Southarlington, Privacy and Bradley raced heads apart in the run down the backscretch and around the sweeping ► turns. Ezio was only a length behind the three leaders, several lengths before Affrighted, who seemed disinterested in the proceedings. Paper Tiger was in last place until he had passed the three-furlong pole. Turning for home, Privacy decided that he had enough and Southarlington widened his lead abruptly, expanding it to four lengths at the furlong pole, while Paper Tiger surged up on the outside with a strong run, but one that never seemed likely to endanger the winner. Boland had only to shake his stick beside the big chestnuts head to maintain a daylight lead to the finish. When Ted Atkinson steered Ethel D. Jacobs Apophasis to a length victory over Halter Lace in the seven-furlong second race, it provided two Daily Double payoffs. Combined with Mabe Cee. Apophasis paid 5. while those who coupled him with Poor John received .4.80. C. T.
