Mrs. Ada L. Rices Great Pride and Joe W. Browns Fanciful Miss were the stars of the two divisions of the Honey- i moon Stakes for three-year-old fillies here I Tuesday afternoon. So large werejthe entries for the mile feature that the race I was split with eight starting in each end and with each carrying a gross purse of 1,650. Great Pride, a daughter of Model Cadet and Ultra Modern, and Fanciful Miss, a filly by King Dorsett and Hianne, ran almost identical races. Both came from far off the pace, but the Rice filly scored with I the more emphatic margin. She reached 1 the wire with a little more than two lengths to spare over Tourbillonte, the ! favorite, as her own stablemate Inquisitive finished third. The Brown representative ! was up in time to win by a neck over Royal Rasher with Pamper, another Rice filly, 1 third. In this division the favorite, Market Basket, was soundly beaten. . Great Pride, ridden by Willie Shoemaker j and held at odds of almost 5-to-2, had only : one opponent "beaten going into the far i turn, but then she began to advance. Meanwhile Classy, as the pacemaker, and ; Tourbillonte were dominating the run- : ning. Entering the homestretch, Great Pride got busy in earnest and by the time she reached the eighth pole she had dead aim on the two leaders. A little farther along the Rice three-year-old got to the lead and then quickly pulled into the clear. Her time for the mile was 1:36. Tourbillonte, who was an odds-on choice, couldnt handle the winner but she held on well enough to save the pace from Inquisitive who in the last few strides passed Classy to account for third honors. Following Classy were Her Honor, Our Legacy, Hermanita and Miss Peggy. Fanciful Miss, who was being guided by Johnny Longden, also came from seventh place to achieve her triumph. Lealito was the early pacemaker, but on the stretch turn, Royal Rasher took over and held the lead until the last few strides where the Brown filly, charging through the stretch on the inside, nailed her. Lealito dropped out of the picture in the final eighth but Pamper Me, who had been among the leaders from the beginning, finished stoutly and raced under the "wire only a length behind Royal Rasher.
