Lewis A. D. Terminates Rugged Boys Win Skein - Draws Out to Two-Length Score Oyer Favorite at Fairmount By J. J. HAHN Staff Correspondent FAIRMOUNT PARK, Collinsville, 111., June 4. — The winning streak of Mrs. O. H. Basiles Rugged Boy came to an end here Friday night when George J. Schatz veteran campaigner, Lewis A. D., came from behind to win the six-furlong French Village Purse, featured on the nine-race card. Mint Branch, representative of R. E. Young, was third. The winner, who was running up his second straight score, was well regarded by the 6,780 fans in attendance, being installed second choice to Rugged Boy." Fast Song went to the front soon after the start and Rugged Boy, guided by Rafael Sanabria, followed him with the ultimate winner racing in third place. As they reached the far turn, Fast Song drifted out and Sanabria, quickly taking advantage of the break, sent his mount through next to the rail but Billeaud, probably looking for the favorite to drift out, remained in third place and behind the leaders. As they straightened out for the drive, Rugged Boy drew away from Fast Song and opened daylight midway the stretch but went wide with Fast Song. As the public choice began drifting out Billeaud saw the big break and sent Lewis A. D. through next to the rail. In the final run the eight-year-old son of Galway drew away quickly and won by two lengths. Rugged Boy was three lengths before Mint Branch, who, in turn, was a neck before Fast Song. Dese-folks and Creme-de-Cocoa were the only other starters. Riding honors went to Dale Dew. The Sac City, Iowa, reinsman tied the seasons record for winners on one program when he held the reins on three successes, equalling the mark of Clarence Meaux and Charles Billeaud. Dew started his trio of wins on Kissable in the first, scored with Butchs Pride in the fourth and handled Quick Imperial for his victory in the sixth. Kissable and Quick Imperial are both owned by the partnership of Mr. and Mrs. Pete Maxwell. The Monday night feature is titled the Jennings. It is at six furlongs and brings together a capacity field. Most likely to serve as, the choices here are Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Holmans Aunt Tilly, Earl Burwells Spring Water, C. W. Carricos Till We Meet and the Valley View Farm entry of Dun-treath Miss and Akrun. The latter is last on the "also eligible" list in the H-horse [field. ,
