DETROIT, Mich., June 27.— Sabula, which has a habit of disappointing when held at short odds, showed little for her following that installed her a 9 to 5 choice for the Toledo Handicap, which featured Detroits racing this afternoon. Winning honors went to F. J. Estes Glynson, with J. M. Jones Chartres second, and Fred M. Algers offending favorite third.

During the opening three-quarters Sabula failed to respond to good pressure, and she made up little ground in the run through the stretch. Glynson carried 108 pounds, four less than the top-weighted Slapped, and ran the mile in the creditable time of 1:41.

He reached the end of the mile and a sixteenth journey that served as the sixth race two and a half lengths before Plucky Baby, which got up to beat the heavily supported Knights Hope a nose for second. After several unsuccessful efforts, Jimmy Butlers Dame Grundy was graduated from the maiden three-year-old ranks when she led Night Ray, Blighted Hopes and seven others of her class to the finish of the three-quarters sprint that opened the program.
