Out Sail Registers in Churchill Spring-Runs Down Pacesetting Marje Everett I i I Rounds Out Jockey-Trainer Double for Meaux, Wright; Chendzod Holds for Third By BUD LYON Staff Correspondent CHURCHILL DOWNS. Louisville, Ky., May 6. — Collaring Gentilly Stables Marje Everett in midstretch, T. Alie Grissoms Out Sail drove to a hard earned one length victory in the featured Royal Charger Purse under vigorous handling by Clarence Meaux. The beaten filly had registered all the fractional times in the 6 1-2 furlongs. Show money went to R. R. Flynns Chendzod who was nearly five lengths farther back. Out Sail, lightly considered in the wagering by the nearly 8,500 fans present, returned 3.80, after racing the distance in a sizzling 1:16%, but fcur ticks above the track standard. The victory was the second in succession for Meaux and trainer V. R. "Tennessee" Wright as they had already accounted for the fitth event with Jim Paddocks Pipit. The win aboard Out Sail also placed Meaux in a tie with Steve Brooks for leading rider at the meeting, each with eight I winners during the first 10 days. As the field broke from the barrier, Meaux had the three-yeai*-old Out Sail snugged back in fourth position and con-| tent to allow Marje Everett to go ahead and have her own way about the early run-jning. The Shut Out filly did just that as she stepped the opening quarter in :223/5. the half mile in :45%, and the three-quar- I ters in 1:10. That "cooked" her insofar as that final run to the wire went and she had very little left at the finish. Actually, it appeared as if Meaux foresaw all this. He merely awaited his time, eased out in the middle of the track once the stretch was reached, and close in on the pacemaker. Out Sail drove to the leader at the eighth pole but she was not able to put Marje Everett away until the sixteenth pole at which point the torrid early pace had taken its toll and allowed the Gris-som filly to win as she pleased. Jockey Rotz maintained an unblemished record for the afternoon through the fourth race as he notched his third win of the day, in as many attempts, with Paul Shawhans Chrisiewoo, which also made it a double for owner-trainer Shawhan. The two-year-old son of Dark Star came from far off the pace to gain his maiden victory over 11 other madden juveniles and while defeating Pensive Sun by a half length. August Muckler Jr.s Deemster came from out of the pack to get show money by finishing another length and one-half away. Chrisiewoo raced the 5 panels in 1:00%, and as the favorite with the crowd he returned .40. John L. Rotz accounted for both ends of the Daily Double this afternoon, a feat he had previously accomplished at this same oval last October 3.

Risk Another appeared much the best against the 11 maidens she met in the opener as the filly was totally unprepared for the start and as a consequence far back through the opening half mile and seemingly in no position whatever to emerge with that prize. However, perseverance on the part of Rotz got the filly into stride as she swept into the long front straightaway and with a belated rush she was up in closing strides to nip J. Graham Browns Capitals Flag by a half length, the latter being a mild choice with the fans. Clifford Lusskys Ripping Lie held on to finish third being a half length short of place money. Risk Another raced the 6 furlongs in 1:13. Marty Dee made every pole a winning one while picking up her maiden victory at the expense of 11 other two-year-old fillies in the second, stepping the 5 furlongs distance in 1:00%. Lesser honors here fell to E. H. Lanes Faila Suit who finished nearly three lengths short of the winner and just a nose before R. G. Burns Bobbie L. The choice, Jim Paddocks homebred Rohanie. was fourth.
