C. G. RAIBLE— Master of Pebblebrook Farm, whose Irish Lancer, a full brother to the champion filly Idun, won his initial race yesterday at Jamaica. Nasco Gains First Victory of Season Outruns Leaders In Final Furlong Nivrag Settles for Place After Leading During Early Stages on Jamaica Program By BOB HORWOOD JAMAICA, L. I., N. Y., May 5.— Intelligently ridden by Johnny Ruane,. Wheatley Stables Nasco ran down the leaders in the final furlong of todays featured Harrison Purse before 20,604 fans to score going away. At the end of the 1 3-16 miles, Nasco led Pennsylvania Farms pacemak-ing Nivrag by three and a half lengths, while Mrs. Tom Wallers Mustato was a nose farther back after forcing the pace all the way. Circle M. Farms Ambehaving was two two lengths out of the money in the field of six. Nasco paid 0.20 and was teletimed in 1:57%. Nasco is a 4-year-old bay son of Nasrul-lah — Miss Disco, by Discovery, and thus a full brother to Bold Ruler, who was also bred by Mrs. H. C. Phipps, mistress of Wheatley. Todays was Nascos first victory in eight starts this year. Last year, he won five of 28 and earned 6,335. "Peejay" Bailey sent Nivrag to the front as the field left the gate at the head of the stretch, closely followed by Mustato and the pair cut out a swift early pace in the run past the stands the first time, around the clubhouse turn and down the backstretch. Ruane rated Nasco daylight behind the leaders, while Ambehaving was a remote fourth, followed by Star Prince II. and Casual Friend. Nivrag Still Leads Nearing the end of the backstretch, Nasco began to move steadily to the leaders, while Casual Friend also began to close ground, rather unconvincingly. Turning for home, Nivrag still led Mustato by a head with Nasco driving at them on the outside a length farther back. Ruane went to his whip as they straightened away for the run home and Nasco responded willingly, taking command just above the furlong pole and drawing away with au-thorioy. Nivrag held on gamely to save second money by inches. Casual Friend hung at the end to be necked by Ambehaving for fourth honors. The latter was making his first start since March 16 at Gulfstream and can be expected to improve. Though still obviously green. Pebble-brook Farms Irish Lancer won the fifth race in the style of a good colt. Last out of the gate the full brother to Idun lost ground at the head of the stretch, but went on to score by three and a half lengths ; j over Charfran Stables Island King. The I latter was also off very slowly, but moved ; up between horses and saved ground turn-, ing for home. Mill River Stables Tarpoo [ was a length farther back and the same , margin before Lazy F Ranchs Royal Redress. Irish Lancer was urged over the 5 ; furlongs by Dave Erb in :5925 and paid . .30 as he graduated on the third attempt. ; Bred by Leslie Combs II. and John W. I Hanes, Irish Lancer was purchased for l 2,000 at last years Keeneland sales by . Charles G. Raible, master of Pebblebrook . Farm. I Mrs. Wallace Gilroys Jet Fuel skipped to • a popular triumph in the Oceanside Purse, " becoming the second winning- odds-on I choice of the day. Eddie Arcaro sent the 1 son of Jet Pilot — Lyceum, by Bull Lea, into 1 command soon after the start of the 6 fur- 1 longs and kept him going to score by al- ; most a length over Wheatley Stables The Irishman. William Ewings Jet Missile tired t at the end to be a half length farther back 1 and a length and a half before Ethel D. Jacobs That Lucky Day. Jet Fuel paid - .80 after getting the job done in 1:11%. r — — ■
