Coasts Home Six Before Vir-Marie Odds-on Erian Third While Arcaro Rounds Out Triple At Jamaica Aboard Victress By BOB IIORWOOD JAMAICA. L. I.. N. Y., April 30.— Drawing awaj with majestic authority, Warner L. Jones Jr.s Lawdy Claudy romped to an easy triumph in todays 7,325 Rosedale Stakes. The daughter of Woodchuck — Rhinestone, by Royal Gem II coasted to the end of 5 furlongs in :59. on a track that had- dried to fast, six lengths before Carmen L. Bertazons Vir-Marie. who finished fairly well to take second honors by a length and a half over John C. Clarks odds-on choice, Erian. The field was completed by Myron N. Goodwins Penny a Pitch, a first-time starter who was unable to keep pace. Eddie Arcaro completed a consecutive triple on Lawdy Claudy, who returned .60. .40 to her admirers in the crowd of 21,364 that turned" out in sunny weather. There was no show wagering. Erian, who had scored impressively for her debut on Monday, came on tha track appearing somewhat ouchy and finished in style suggesting that she may have bucked her shins for the third time. The drughter of Errard bucked her shins twice before making her debut. Earns 1,261 Gross Purse Lawdy Claudy, who won a division of the Singing Tower Stakes at Gulfstream Park last out, added 1,261.25, including 75 in fees, to her earnings as she scored her fourth victory in six starts.

Jones also bred Penny a Pitch, who is by the same young sire. Erian was first out of the gate* at the start of the Rosedale, but Lawdy Claudy quickly shot into command along the rail, opening a lead of more than a length going to the far turn. It was another couple of lengths back to Penny a Pitch and Vir-Marie. who raced as a team for a quarter mile. Lawdy Claudy widened her lead rounding the far turn without being urged, while Erian was already under pressure in an effort to keep pace, but seemed to have i lost her smooth action, j Lawdy Claudy_ sailed into the- stretch ■several lengths in the van and drew out with every smooth, ground-devouring stride, while Erian was unable to withstand the belated rush of Vir-Marie, who had won her only two previous start in Maryland, but had carried a ,000 claiming tag last out. Eddie Arcaro scored a consecutive -double in the races preceding the Rosedale. taking the fourth event on Mrs. Ben F. Whit-akers front-running Black Dot and bringing" Mrs. Julie Mirons Dead Indian up to outfinish P. H. B. Frelinghuysens June W. in the fifth.
