Responding dutifully to Karl Kortes urging entering the elongated Pimlico homestretch, she disposed of Michael DOnofrios Cervina and won consummately by two and a half lengths. It was a like distance back to Milton Shagrins San Ju Lee, who came back nodding, and Miss Cloudy was fourth of a moderate field of eight three-year-old fillies summonsed by this "Preakness for fillies." The victress, acquired by her present owner from H. H. Polk, was the only one of the octet who had previously won a stakes event. She returned and earned a check for 5,340 of which 5,090 was net. Her time was a perfunctory 1:48% in deep slop, the consequence of hard rains earlier in the day, and this was a trifling six and four-fifths seconds behind the track mark. Each of the entrants carried | her weight of 121 pounds. Following the Preakness week feature Mrs. Daniel B. Brewster, wife of the President of the Timonium Fair and congressman from this district, presented the trophy to owner Gluck. Won Rather Easily Upon dismounting from the successful daughter of Hill Prince and Dynamite n. jockey Korte estimated: "She won rather easily. She was running easily down the backstretch when I called on her to get to the leader, Who I thought would come back anyway. I took another hold of her then and when I let her run I did not have to get into her at all. Just tapped her to keep her mind on her business." Trainer Eddie Yowell commented: "Toluene was airing all the way. It was a very easy race. We are shipping her to New York tomorrow." Freddie Kratz hopped off Cervina to say : "My instructions were to get away to my position and judge my pace whichI did. When the winner came to me I moved with her but when we straightened out in the stretch the winner drew off. She was just too much horse." Chris Rogers said: "San Ju Lee pulled up sore. Just as I began to make my move she began to hurt." Larry Adams on Miss Cloudy remarked: "At the three-eighths pole I thought I was hime. I was just sitting tight. Then she seemed to fall apart on me, I went to work on her but I just didnt seem to have any horse under me." f The Black Eyed Susan looked like a bad horse race for about 6 furlongs of the way, with Time to Sell and Nick Shuk setting out to purloin the purse if possible and shaking off Regal Step in the first strides then opening up seven lengths on the backstretch. Regal Step continued doggedly in second place to the end of that lane then paged a taxi. Cervina, who had been laying fourth, many lengths away, now began to advance on Time to Sell, accompanied by Toluene. Time to sell ran out of oxygen on ,the last bend and yielded without much resistance when Toluene and Cervina came to her racing as a team. Straightening for the run home, Toluene dismissed Cervina without any undue pressure and she was only airing at the end. San Ju Lee came from far back on the far sidebf the course to be third, beaten some five lengths. The fractions were a leisurely f23%, :47%, 1:14%, 1:41% and 1:48%.
