I., N. Y., May 3.— Reveling in the sloppy footing, Mrs. Gerald S. Smiths Outer Space splashed to the finish of todays 7,500 Bed 0"Roses Handicap a length and one-half before Michael R. Sotos Loriel, who led for most of the mile and a sixteenth. Mrs. Ethel D. Jacobs favored Searching, who appeared anchored under her topweight of 123 pounds, finished two lengths farther back and half a length before Harry La Montagnes Plotter, who seemed to dislike the going. Bill Boland urged Outer Space over the mile and a sixteenth in a creditable l:43*s and she paid 0.10 to her followers in the dampened throng of 28,156: taht turned out in a cold, penetrating rain. Outer Space, who was scoring her second victory in three starts this year and won six of 12 last season, is a four-year-old bay daughter of Saggy — Supersonic, by Devil Diver, who is trained by Jim Malbney. The cat-like filly added 7,875, including 00 in fees, to her earnings. Third In Previous Start Outer Spaces last stakes victory was in i similar sloppy going in the Mother Goose Handicap at Belmont Park last July 13. In her last outing she tired at the end of the Correction Handicap and finished third to Searching and Fanciful Miss on a fast track. In with 113 pounds. Outer Space benefited by a five-pound weight shift in relation to Searching, but undoubtedly was helped even more by the elements. Fanciful Miss was a late scratch, along with Dotted Line. Outer Space was first out of the gate at the start of the Bed ORoses, but soon was passed by Lori-EI, who opened up a two-. length lead in the first quarter mile. Plotter was in third place on the outside rounding the clubhouse turn and into the back-stretch, followed by Searching, Hoosier Honey and Gay Life. Lori-EI continued to lead Outer Space by a little more than a length in the run down the backstretch, but Boland was not asking much of the daughter of Saggy. Plotter moved up to be lapped on the ultimate win-j ner, but the long-striding filly -seemed to be having trouble placing her feet in the soupy going and soon began to bear out. Nearing the final bend Searching began I to move up along the rail, but her bid lacked I authority. Lori-EI remained in command to j I the quarter pole, but Outer Space had room . | on the inside and slipped through without too much-effort as" they straightened away for the run to the wire. At the same time Plotter drifted wide, and Searching slowly gained ground on the rail. Through the final furlong Outer Space steadily drew away under hand urging, while Boland was able to relax his efforts in the last jump or two. Lori-EI fought on gamely, while Searching lacked her familiar finishing punchy Nonces Rule Annexes Sprint Mrs. W. Thorn Kissels Nances Rule, a full-brother to the clever Nances Lad. drew out at the end of the Hampton Bays Purse to triumph by almost three lengths over Isidore Biebers Little Walter, who nosed out Leo R. Finks Big Winner. Greentree Stables Prank, the odds-on choice, seemed to be a bit too heavy headed for Johnny Ruane to handle and finished almost two lengths out of the money after being "smothered" passing the quarter pole. Nances Rule paid 3.40 and required 1:13 for the six furlongs. He appeared to have a bit of speed in reserve. Favored by the wet fast track, Mrs. Ethel D. Jacobs Apophasis and Dac Stables Steelmaster scored front-running victories Lin the first two sprints, combining for a 12.70 Daily Double. Apprentice Jack Leonard hustled Apophasis to the finish of the opener a little more than a length be- j I ! .

Apophasis paid 6 straight. Ted Atkinson whipped Steelmaster to the finish of the second, a head before South Point, who lost ground at the final bend. It was four lengths back to Gideon, while Jo-Ma-Be was a staggering- fourth, two lengths out of the money. Steelmaster paid 3.70 straight. Both Apophasis and Steelmaster were teletimed in l:124,s for the 6 furlongs. Ralph Lowes Mr. Vale, a white-faced roan colt, from the first crop of Royal Vale, out of Santa Stefana, by St. James, made a highly promising debut in the fourth race, skipping to the end of five furlongs in :59*4. overa track that had become sloppy. Four lengths behind the winner, who was being eased by John Cho-quette, came Philip Godfreys Zabaglione. who led Circle M Farms Atlas Missile by another length and a half. Laudy Lawrences Prothalamion was another three lengths out of the money.
