Mr. and Mrs. Allie Reubens Hasty House Farm supplied the winner of the featured Honeymoon Handcap here this afternoon in the three-year-old filly, Bluebility, a daughter of Blue Swords With apprentice Jerry Tinman riding his third winner of the day, Bluebility came strongly on the outside of the early leaders in the last sixteenth to be up in time to win by a neck from the favored Dales Delight, owned by Nolan and Moss. Third place in the nine-horse field was taken by Mrs. Harold G. Bockmans Marooned, while -Estacion, the highweight and strong second choice, finished fourth. Bluebility, in winning her first race in two starts this year, paid 2.60 and ran the seven fur- longs in 1:23. Supreme Joy Declared Supreme Joy was the lone withdrawal from the original field of 10 and the start was a poor one, with Picafriend, Lady Ell liott, Estacioh, and Moslem Maid being those in the rear. The early pace was set by Marooned, with Charlie Burr up, while Dales Delight was but a head removed under the rating of Harrel Bolin. As they reached the first turn following their long run, it was still Marooned showing the way to Dales Delight, Lady Swords moving into third place, and EstaciOn moving to fourth place in the inside. After entering the stretch Dales Delight, j on the outside, successfully challenged Ma-roOned and took a head advantage, but found the Bockman filly a worthy opponent and was unable to shake her off. While the pair were battling it out, Bluebility was moving on the outside and she caught the two in the last 30 yards.

The race was worth 2,375 gross and 3,125 net to the winner. The attendance on a cloudy but not unpleasant day was 9,737. A 41-year-old jockey riding here for the first time in 15 yearsTand a 19-year-old ap-! prentice who has had but few mounts, combined to put across a ,579.40 Daily Double. Arthur Craig, the oldster, accepting his second mount of the meeting, steered My Carrie, a 82.80 winner, to victory in the opener, and Jimmy Preston, the youngster, won the second with Eli J., who paid 6.60. Favorites were unplaced in each of the events. My Carrie and Eli J. each displayed good early speed and took command about the half-way mark in their respective races. Jockey Craig almost won with his second mount of the day, which was Fideles in the fifth race. However, the four -year-old filly, after leading most of the way, was nipped by the favored Dancing, ridden by John Heckmann, at the wire. Fideles went to the front early to shake off Master Red and had a good lead at midstretch, but just failed to last at the five and one-half furlongs distance. Apprentice Jerry Truman won two of the first half dozen races. His initial score came on Hash Supreme in the third and he repeated with Exception in the sixth. Both runners are trained by Henry Forrest. Hash Supreme, the second choice, registered by five lengths, with With Music, the favorite, being third, while Exception, after stumbling right after the start, proved much the best to score by two and one-half lengths and pay 5.00. The fourth was taken by Scription, with Larry Gilli-gan up, and sent trainer William Schmidt further ahead in the trainer standings. Purse but is capable of a much better effort and improvement is anticipated tomorrow afternoon. Theodore Johnsons Busy Bandit is also expected to be closer than she was in her latest essay. Better Marks, the Mrs. Anne Neylon representative, failed to be dangerous last time out j but may show to better advantage.
