► : 4 Shirley Jones Survives Foul Claim in Jamaica Head liner Quill, 1958 Juvenile Queen/ Runs Fourth Behind Cobul, High Bid in Distaff Event By BOB HORWOOD JAMAICA, L. I., N. Y.May 7.— Reginald N. Websters 1958 juvenile filly champion, Quill, returned to the races today in the featured Fleetwood Purse, but could finish no better than fourth in the field of seven. The daughter of Princequillo — Quick Touch, by Count Fleet, was under a strong hold by "Peejay" Bailey for most of the 1 1-16 miles, was given one light cut with the whip above the eighth pole, then finished evenly under a mild hand ride. She should improve in the 0,000 Acorn Stakes at Belmont Park a week from Saturday. Bailey, who received a 10-day suspension today, will be unable to ride Quill in that race. Brae Burn Farms Shirley Jones won the Fleetwood by a nose over Mrs. Nicholas M. Schencks Cobul, but had to survive the third foul claim of the day, lodged by Johnny Ruane, who finished almost a length farther back on Wheatley Stables favored High Bid. It was another four lengths back to Quill. Ruane alleged that High Bid came out against him at the head of the stretch, but the patrol films showed that the two fillies were never close. Shirley Jones, who was ridden by John Choquette, paid 1.50 and was teletimed in 1:44%. A throng of 20,631 turned out in delightful spring weather. Daughter of Double Jay Shirley Jones is a bay three-year-old daughter of Double Jay — LOmelette, by Alibhai, who races for James McCue, master of Brae Burn Farm. Shirley Jones won all three of her starts last year, but broke slowly, then was in close quarters in the Prioress Stakes for his first start this year. Trainer Jim Hastie was completing a double in the feature, having saddled Mrs. W. E. Leachs Keep Pitching to win the fourth event. Shirley Jones was first out of the gate at the start of the Fleetwood, while Bailey ~~ Continued on Page Forty-Four j Shirley Jones Wins Jamaica Headliner Survives Third Foul Claim £ On Program; Quill Unplaced rf While, Making Seasonal Bow Z Continued from Page One « sat back against Quill and dropped over j* to the rail. In the run around the club- house turn and into the backstretch, Shir-3 ley Jones led High Bid by a narrow margin 2 with Cobul a length farther back and some u three lengths before At Sea. Quill was a length farther back and literally pulling x Bailey out of the saddle in the run down D the far side. Shirley Jones continued to lead High Bid jp in the run down the backstretch and = around the turns to the stretch, with Cobul J a couple of lengths farther back on the rail, followed by Quill, .who moved up on the inside. At the final turn, Shirley Jones j drifted out, but was clear of High Bid, while Cobul surged up on the rail to take a a half-length lead at the furlong pole. Bailey hit Quill once, then decided not to abuse the filly in her first outing and resumed a mild hand ride. Through the final sixteenth, Shirley Jones came on again willingly under Cho-quettes urging, thrusting her nose in front in the very last stride to nik Cobul. High * Bid turned in a good race, but lacked any real punch in the stretch. Gawain Repeats Whitewood Studs Gawain, a repeater, closed with a rush to win the Baldwin claiming purse by a length and one-half over Emil Dolces Imon, who looked like a winner at the sixteenth pole. Peglyn Farms Tomike was less than a length farther back after getting the lead for a few strides passing the eighth pole, while Copalan Stables Joes Master stopped badly to be four lengths out of the money after setting the pace to the stretch. Eddie Arcaro hustled Gawain home in 1:45% for the mile and one-sixteenth and the son of Tennyson n. paid .10. Rockburn Farms Recite, strongly ridden by Manual Ycaza survived a foul claim after winning the Herrick Purse by three lengths over Maryford Farms Level Land. Mrs. J. R. H. Thourons Translucent was a length farther back and almost two lengths before Charfran Stables, Our Mar-gobee, the favorite. Immediately after the race, Eddie Arcaro, who finished eighth on Mrs. Alfred Giordanos Errards Dam-ozel claimed that the winner bothered him near the quarter pole. However, the patrol films showed clearly that Arcaros mount was trying to bear out and caused her own trouble. Recite paid 0 and stepped the 6 furlongs in 1:12%.
