Egyptian Queen Scores ! In Cahokia Downs Mud Stelle Runner Whips Favored Herb S. in Featured Belleville By A. L. SHIELDS CAHOKIA DOWNS, East St. Louis. 111.. May5. — John Stelles Egyptian Queen found the muddy racing strip to her liking in the ,500 Belleville Handicap here Saturday •and defeated the highly regarded Herb S., who runs in the colors of Mr. and Mrs. E. C. i Logsdon, by five lengths. James M. Burns ] Pearl Corral, second choice in the wager- ] ing, waded home third, six and a half lengths behind the second runner. Timed in 1:21% for 6 1-2 furlongs, Egyptian Queen rewarded her followers among the 6,080 fans with a payoff of 1.60. Jockey Raymond Landing hustled the four - year - old Fighting Fox — Risky Raid filly out of the gate to open a two-length Iqad before reaching the quarter. When Herb S. launched a desperate bid at the half-mile marker, the young rider asked his mount for a stronger effort, got the needed response, and though drifting out through the stretch, the Stelle colorbearer had little difficulty showing the way to the spread-eagled field. The opening event was taken by Mrsr Frank Baumans Salt Lick, who posted a mutuel of 1.40, while F. C. Reeds Eck-Heart, the winner of the second race, paying a mutuel of .00 as the second choice in the wagering, completed a Daily Double worth 22 60 to the holders of the 8-10 combination. The secondary feature, named the New Baden Purse, saw apprentice R. C. Galli-morc continue his winning ways when Frank G. Orrs Casper got up in time to defeat Green River Stables Guys Birthday by a scant nose. The fast-closing Bogan was two and a half lengths farther back in third position. Casper returned 1.40, $•4.80 and .20 across the board: The Kirkwood Purse at 5 furlongs holds the spotlight Tuesday night with 11 three-year-olds and older slated to match strides under starter allowance conditions. The rather bulky field is made up of Mrs.-M. Mezens Peso Pete; Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Logsdons Eternal Sam, coupled with Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Jordans Gilded King; C. W. Ryans Easy Tiger; G. J. S c h a t z Lewis A. D., Ray D. Paytons Bolero Jane, Mitchell Aboumrads Truckle Sue; F; W. Evangers Paul H.; Stelle Farms Clay Worker; R. C. Naumans War Stimulant, and Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Holmans A Toute Force. Eternal Sam narrowly defeated A Toute Force and Reservation here last Wednesday evening. The Eternal Bull — Smarty gelding might have had an advantage stronger than the head margin over A Toute Force in that outing but. for the fact that he was taken back when in close quarters during the early running and managed to gain the rail position through the stretch to eke out his victory. He will probably find a large measure of support Tuesday night. Lewis A. D. looms a strong contender. He dropped a decision to Mike Newton here on opening night but is a consistent sort with a record of ten scores to his credit last year. Clay Worker defeated Light Lewis and Teds Jeep in a corking front-running performance here a week agb when in the role of favorite.
