I., May 3. — Peter and Beno Cirioni, contractors from Framingham, Mass., found conditions ideal for their gelding. Double Bid. and he led every inch of the way to account for the Brockton Purse here this afternoon. The six-year-old son of Double Jay— Belle Poise, by Equipoise arrived at the winning marker by three and three-quarters lengths advantage while being ridden out by Henry Wajda, leading reinsmtn of the meeting. P. Bongarzones Zolt made a powerful gesture as the field neared the stretch, but could not sustain his drive, even though best of the others in the field of eight. Mr. and Mrs. A. P. Richards Come on Red was third and Circle K Farms Illusionist fourth. Earlier in the day the skies cleared momentarily and it appeared that the sport would be offered under excellent conditions, but once the program started rain began to fall and it increased in intensity until shortly before the field for the Brockton paraded. By this time the course was in a sloppy state, a factor that mitigated against the chances of several contestants, not. the least of whom was Navarette, one of the choices, and Illusionist. Hie crowd numbered 15,563. Double Bid stepped the 7 furlongs in 1:26% and returned .80 while coming up an unexpected favorite. Double Bid broke alertly from his No. 1 slot, but was hard pressed early by Noble Try, whoalmost attained command as they moved down the backstretch. Once the latter tired. Zolt zoomed up and appeared to have his eyes sighted on something important, and as the pace quickened on the far turn the others began to fall back, many beaten because they could not negotiate the footing. Coming into the stretch, Zolt continued to pare down Double Bids advantage, but Wajda had conserved his mount well and when he settled down to hard riding in the stretch he received response that made the Cirioni much the best on this particular afternoon. Everett Lowrances Blue Wayne, one of the most honest and courageous of all claimers, was made the choice in the fourth, a 7-furlongs dash for ,500-,000 but was not good enough. He finished second to Tomilan tables Side Wheel, a four-year-old chestnut son of John Arc — Burdite, by Burgoo King. Bobby Mundorf,. a veteran from Valentine, Nebr., who has been flashing good form of late in the saddle, was astride Side Wheel and it was his splended judgment that contributed to the success of the victor. 1 .." t . .1 ■ ..i _i
