J. MURPHY SPORTSMANS PARK.Cicero, III., April 30.— The Endurance Handicap No._2 was the feature attraction here this afternoon, and Mrs. Annie Manzos four-year-old Gold Key, winner of Endurance No. 1 last Wednesday, proved a repeater when he took the event by one and one-quarter lengths from Emil Denemark Jr.s Ten, an even-money favorite. Gold Key etsablished a new track record for the distance* running the 9 furlongs in 1:51. That bettered the standard set by Key Biscayiie two years ago by one-fifth of a second. Teri finished second, three lengths in advance of Eric Ericsons Braseda who is also a record-holder at this course. Gold Key paid 1.60. Survives Another Inquiry The backers of .Gold Key suffered some anxious moments before the colt was officially declared the winner. As in the Endurance of last week, the stewards conducted an inqury into the race after it appeared as if the colt had seriously interfered with Teri in the stretch. However, the photos must have shown otherwise as the original placing was allowed to stand. Gold Key went to the front early in the contest and, after shaking off Easy Traffic, took a good lead. Meanwhile, Teri, ridden t?,?ZV!?Td Craig had been trailing the field but was under restraint. Upon leaving the backstretch. Teri started a very strong run on the outside and, although coming to the middle of the track in the stretch, moved within a length of Gold Key at midstretch. Then Gold Key. ridden by Skoronski, bore out and it appeared Continued on Poge Forty Gold Key Lowers Time Mark at Sportsmans Travels 9 Furlongs in 1 :51 for Repeat Win in Endurance Series Continued from Poge One from the stand as if he had seriously interfered with Ten. No surprise was expressed when the inquiry sign was posted. The surprise came when Gold Key was not disqualifed. A crowd of 10,443 enjoyed sunny, albeit, slightly cool and windy weather, to turn out to view the midweek card, and the track was fast. The 16th straight favorite went down to defeat at this track when Olympia Field, public choice in the Heather Broom, the days secondary feature, failed to wind up in the money. Royal Jester was the winner, beating Royal Dasher by a nose. Tonk Skoronski rode Royal Jester and Tony Ferraiuolo was on Royal Dasher. The pair dominated the running in the last half mile of the 6Y2 furlongs affair, racing head and head for the four, furlongs, with Royal Jester, owned by Emil Dust, outnodding his rival, who was a longshot. Royal Jester paid 3.40. Third place was taken by Marooned, with Full Flight, who was blocked at the half-way mark, fourth. Backers of horses breaking from No. 1 post position were rewarded when rail runners won the first two events to complete a 13 Daily Double. The letter "S" also predominated as Storm Jet took the opener and Sir Chris, the second. Each led from start to finish in 6 lb-furlong races. Dudley Vandenborre rode Storm Jet and Leonard Richardson was on Sir Chris. It appeared for a time as if a public choice might finally be successful when Hy-Skeeter took the track in the third to open up a good lead. However, Blue Safari, ridden by Jerold Casey, caught him in the last sixteenth-to win going away. Red Perfume, with Willie Collier up, came from behind to take the six and one-half furlongs fourth, and Discordant, piloted by Milton Dalgo, led most of the way in the six-furlong fifth to be easily successful. Not .only did the favorites fail during the first six events, but only two were in the money, Hy-Skeeter being second and Flashy Fellow, in the first race, finishing third.
