► = : , Handy Triumph by Egotistical At Jamaica Gives Ycaza Triple Front-Stepping Newton Colt * Whips Hastego, Portersville In Six-Furlong Fulton Purse By BOB NORWOOD JAMAICA, N. Y., May 5. — Giving jockey Manuel Ycaza a triple, Maurice Newtons Egotistical opened a daylight lead coming out of the gate in todays featured Fulton Purse and splashed his way to the end "of the 6 furlongs a little more than three lengths before Mrs. Arthur Whites Hastego. The latter was favored over the winner by the crowd of 21.765. for reasons difficult to fathom. Albert J. Meslers Sids Gambol was a head behind Hastego in third place and a little more than two lengths before Clearwater Stables Portersville, who was making his seasonal debut. Egotistical paid after getting the 6 panels in 1:11% on a sloppy track. All Front-Runners . Ycaza won the opening dash on Naughty Nymph and the sixth event on Spring Training. Like Egotistical, they led all the way. The young Panamanian also finished third on Election in the second race, second on Margobee in the third, second on Whats Ahead in the fourth and had no mount in the fifth. Egotistical, who had romped to a similar triumph on a fast track on April 26. was never seriously threatened today. Bill JBo-land sent Hastego in pursuit leaving the gate, but was never able to menace the winning son of Better Self from the stakes-winning Leslie Grey, by Isolatef. Sids Gambol was in third place for the opening quarter, but was passed by Portersville and Jutland rounding the far turn, then came on again at the end and probably would have been second in another jump. Portersville tried to work out a mile after the finish of the feature, but had to go very wide to get past the leaders and was clocked in 1:44 and some change. Jockey Ycaza completed a double when he hustled Mrs. Jan Burkes maiden three-year-old Spring Training to a front-running triumph in the sixth dash. The son of Mr. Busher was three and one-half lengths to the fore of William C. Par-tees Vengeance at the end of 6 furlongs in 1:12VS, while Woodley Lane Farms Greek Knight was another three lengths in arrears. Spring Training paid .90. Foxcatcher Farms Genessian scored a front-running triumph in the fourth event, splashing to the end of the 6 furlongs 2li lengths before Maine Chance Farms Whats Ahead, who led Joseph Marrones Byvote by almost four lengths. Frank Lovato piloted Genessian. an altered son of Polynesian from the stakes-winning Gaf-fery. who paid 5.30 and was teletimed in l:12-«and. John W. Nizleks Periquest stood a long drive to take the fifth event by a half length over Nanuet Farms Aces Even. Mrs. Frank Doughertys Honey Ann was a little more than a length farther back at the end of a rather "rough 6 furlongs, while Midas Farms Bravely Waving was almost two lengths out of the money. Angel Va-lenzuela rode Periquest. who paid 1.10 and required 1:12% for the 6 panels.
