I Appeal Gains Easy Camden Score Among Hartacks Quartet of Wins Brookfield Four-Year-Old Reaches Wire Four Lengths In Advance of Royal Fan By FRED GALIANI GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May 9. — Willie Hartack rode four winners here this sunny but crisp afternoon and the easiest of them all came in the featured Perth Amboy Purse. Astride Brookfield Farms I Appeal, Hartack coasted to four lengths on top, taking a long lead soon after the gates were opened and never in the slightest manner threatened. Soundly backed by the majority of the crowd of 18,689 I Appeal never gave them the slightest moment of apprehension and covered the six furlongs in 1:10%. M. S. Goldnamers Royal Fan was second in the Perth Amboy, and was four and a half lengths before the next horse, G. Bills, Jr.s Setubal who headed out E. M. OBriens Brisuet for third. Hartack had previously won the third and fourth races with Another World, Isajoy, and the sixth with Cedar Farms Our Dance. It was a double for Brookfield, who owns Isajoy. Gains on Boulmetis Hartacks four winners put him one up on Sammy Boulmetis as the two of them continue their ding dong battle for the lead. Boulmetis had four winners on Saturday. There was little to the Perth Amboy. I Appeal quickly flashed away from the gate and was daylight in front before they had gone a sixteenth of a mile. He widened his lead to seven on the turn. Heading down the stretch, Hartack looked back over his left shoulder but there was nothing in sight. Just to keep the colt about his business though, he hit him once with the whip near the sixteenth pole. He was alone going under the wire. Brisuet did most of the immediate chasing but gave way in the stretch to Royal Fan, who quickly passed him to be a comfortable second. Brisuet lost the third award when Setubal, got through along the rail to get his head in front.
