VanBergs Bishops Light *%as tiptoed out of the gate, opened a commanding advantage, then retained his margin to the end to account for the Dene-mark Farm Purse before a crowd of 8.047 here this delightful afternoon. The five-year-old gelded son of Roman Bout — Minnie, by Sir Pennant was briskly ridden by Jack Fieselman as he stepped over the mile and one-sixteenth in 1:45%. Joe-Anna Stables The Great Man plodded along in last place until the far turn, where he picked up momentum and then ran down the others to finish second. He was a head in front of Charles Fritz Sir Tribal, while Mrs. Emil Denemarks Teri was fourth. First Victory This Year Bishops Lights margin was a length. The gelding was something of a star here last season, but this marked the first victory of the year. However, he was made the choice over the excellent field and paid .20. The return of ideal weather and a lightening fast track accelerated the wagering v as the regular meeting of the National i Jockey Club settles in stride. I Teri was the first to show coming out I of the gate, but. in a jiffy, Bishops Light forged into the lead and there he remained. Sir Tribal, who appeared to leg-in most of the way to give Tony Skoronski something of a problem, followed the pacemaker, while Rivington also had a dash of speed. This was the order until the far turn, where Bishops Light drew away with authority. The Great Man hereupon began to make up some ground and swung to the extreme outside for the drive.

A. Segretos Joe Jr., one who raced well under the lights at the Jefferson Downs meeting, scored a fine triumph against the i ,250 platers in the sixth, a 16 furlongs I event. The six-year-old son of Bolero — I Snooky Fox, by Gallant Fox, was well ridden by Ronnie Baldwin, who nursed him i carefully before making his bid with a quarter of a mile to go. Everett Lowrances Gay Baron lodmed j menacingly at the top of the stretch, but ! flattened out somewhat to finish second. Luciette, owned by Nissen and Brock, was third after setting most of the pace. Joe Jr., who finished second in his previous start here against cheaper company, raced the distance in 1:13% and paid .40. Luciette was hustled into the lead down | the backstretch and into the turn. At this point, M. H. VanBergs Tiger Sun was vir- | tually eliminated, for he clipped the heels i of Classic Red and almost went down. Luciete continued to hold sway around the turn into the stretch, where Gay Baron loomed strongly on the otuside and appeared about ready to take over when Joe Jr. spurted to engage that one. In the run to the wire, Joe Jr. was much the stronger.
