Captures Suffolk Headliner Gives Trainer Canzano and Jockey Green Second Winner Of Card; Baywise Wins Fifth By FRED GALIANI SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., April 30. — Trainer John "Doc" Canzano and apprentice Bobby Green took over the limelight this dreary afternoon, combining to win two races on the program, including the featured Boxford Purse with Mrs. R. E. Haynes Criss M. The five-year-old roan scored an upset in the best event of the day when he defeated Bill Carrolls Charlie Boy, the favorite, by three and a half lengths. Phil Utmans Barroco, who was just purchased this week, finished fast to be third in the field of seven aged horses. Criss M. returned 3.20 and went the 6 furlongs over the heavy strip in 1:13, good time for the going. Bobby Green and Canzano also won the fifth race with Bay-side Stables Baywise, who paid 8.60. It was the first two winners at the meeting for Green, a former Army paratrooper. A crowd of 8,922 attended on an overcast and mostly intermittently rainy day. Van Hook Wraps Up Double Earlier in the proceedings, jockey Earl Van Hook was the star, piloting both ends of the 78.60 Daily Double on Mrs. John 1 Grews Whats-the-Hurry and Eddie Man-I zis Bone Tired. Criss M. left little doubt in the running of the feature. He came out of the number one post on the lead and was never headed thereafter. Scooting along under Greens persistent driving, he managed to maintain a length lead over Charlie Boy most of the way. In the final stages, Criss M., rugging the rail, drew out under Green until he had a comfortable margin of almost four lengths. The favorite went in the outer part of the strip, but lost ground through the final drive. Barroco closed with a rush to finish third, passing Hungry Dream. Both Baywise and Criss M. came out of the post one which is considered a dis- | advantage at this .track in 6-furlong races. ! ; In addition, Whats-the-Hurry, winner of ! j the first, also started from the inside post I to make it three for the afternoon for that figure. For many years, winners of sprints had to be much the best to win from the rail position. They were that today. ,
