Favored Favored I I Offbeat Offbeat Takes Takes Paterson; Paterson; Honeys Honeys Tiger Tiger Wins Wins for for New New Owner Owner Culmone Forced To Exert Pressure Hearts Desire One Length Away From Brookfield Filly Before 19,041 Garden Fans By TEDDY COX GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. Jā€ž May 7. ā€” Brookfield Farms I Offbeat, heroine of the Prioress and an eligible for the Betsy Ross Stakes here, managed to get the job done as a l-to-2 favorite in the Paterson Purse, but gave her backers reason for much concern through the late stages before a crowd of 19,041 this salubrious afternoon. - The jet black daughter of War Relic ā€” Missmahoot, by Halcyon, stepped out into the lead soon after the start and, down the backstretch and around the turn, the veteran Joe Culmone had what amounted to a strangle hold on her in hope of conserving her speed. Early in the stretch, however, she showed definite signs of fatigue and the Italian lad was forced to exert extreme pressure to keep her going. In second place, a length from the lead, was Mrs. J. T. Murtaghs Hearts Desire, while Darby Dan Farms Evening Time was third in front of Conchrist Farms Jeri-lynn. The first three are Betsy Ross eli-gibles. Fillys Fifth Start I Offbeat, who has raced but four times in her rather sensational career, stepped over the six furlongs in 1:115. considered rather dull in view of the fact that a three -year-old maiden had recorded 1:11 earlier in the day. The Baltimore-owned filly paid .00. One of the brightest prospects seen anywhere this season was uncovered in the Brigantine Purse when Brookfield Farms Irate smothered his opposition with speed to win by 15 lengths. The chestnut three-year-old son of General Staff ā€” Barbara Childs. by Clock Tower, was making the initial start of his career, but advance notice had him dubbed a good one and he was backed down to a point that he paid only .20. The general opinion among horsemen after the race was that Irate could develop into a stakes star, even though the opposition was very ordinary. The colt stepped out into the lead after the start and widened out from that point. He had 118 pounds up and raced the six furlongs in 1:11. He received most of his hard training for his bow at Latfrel. It is no secret, either, that both owner Harry Isaacs of the Brookfield Farm and trainer Edward I, Kelly hold him in high esteem. Second in the dash was Wesley Browns One Way Out, while Jack M. Kimbles Johnnie Glenn was third.
