Miss Cuantos Gallops To Second Win in Row Mister Dove Two Lengths Back On Sloppy Ascot Park Course By R. E. HURLEY ASCOT PARK, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, May 3. — Jimmie McCutchens Miss Cuantos, a mud running daughter of Cuantos from Tar Miss, galloped to her second straight victory here today, winning by two lengths from Ed Simpsons Mister Dove, with George Pells Capitalist two and one-half lengths further back in third position. Heavy rains prior to the opening held the crowd to about 6,800 and turned the track to a sloppy condition, but this just suited Miss Cuantos, who was picking up her fourth win of the season on "off" tracks. Joe French brought McCutchens mare from second to last position in the mile and one-sixteenth affair and circled the front-running leaders while racing, the distance in 1:51 Despite having won her last race by seven lengths.

Owner-trainer Gordon Thomson ended an exasperating string of seconds and thirds in the opening race of the day as High Vision skipped through the sloppy footing to register by two-lengths and get the favorite players off with the first winner of the day. High Vision was hustled along by Harry Stauffer and raced the 6V2 furlongs, in 1:24% to pay 20. Trainer Tommy CBrey lost little time in putting Henry b; Cohens Happy Carrier in the races, the Carrier Pigeon gelding just arrived from Baltimore last Thursday, and the move paid off as Happy Carrier was ridden out to a three and a half length victory in the second race with Jockey Boyd Morris picking up his seventh wiener* .
