Also Sends Out Rose Bane CRETE, 111., May 25. The canary and blue silks of Mrs. Emil Denemark, who has one of the largest stables on the grounds, were seen in front for the first time at this meeting when Idle Sun raced to victory over seven other distance runners in the Marquette Road Purse at Lincoln Fields this afternoon. A large crowd looked on as the son of Traumer charged up between liorses in the home stretch and emerged the pinner at the end of a mile and a sixteenth by a length and a half. The victory of Idle Sun rounded out a double for the horses trainer, J. D. Mikel and his rider, Harry Schuling, who made up a successful combination in the opening contest with the jilvenile, Rose Bane. Second to Idle Sun this afternoon was Inscolad, while Bonzar ran third and the favorite, Beamy, fourth. Idle Sun was never far away, while Inscolad, as the pacemaker, and Bonzar dominated the early running. He began to move up on the leaders approaching the stretch and, going up between them a little farther on, got to the front nearing the sixteenth pole and drew out the rest of the way. Bonzar raced Inscolad into submission soon after reaching the home stretch but weakened near the end and was beaten a little less than a length for the place. Beamy Neck Short for Third Place Beamy, who dropped out of contention soon after the break, made up ground rapidly in the last half-mile and just missed third honors by a neck. One Jest and Mor-decai raced prominently over the early furlongs, but both faltered in the drive and were soundly beaten. Idle Sun, who was scoring his first victory in 12 starts this year, ran the mile and a sixteenth in 1:46. The odds against his chances were .80 for . The California-bred Old Smokey, racing for the partnership of Molter and Williams, turned back a field of three-yoar-olds over the mile of the fourth race, one of the supporting features. Coming from behind in the home stretch, the son of Boxthorn and Chatter Queen got up to score by a little less than a length, as West-Ho was second and the strongly supported Tatu third. The winner was ridden by Billy Pearson.

On the turn he began to improve his position and, responding to pressure, he worked his way forward until he got to the front near the end. West-Ho was placed in close quarters by Tatu near the end or else he might have been a little closer. In taking second honors he beat Tatu a half length. The Needmore Stables Downy Pillow scored her third victory in as many starts this year when she won the six-furlong third event to the delight of those who made her the favorite. She also came from behind and won by three lengths, Cherriko running second and Roman Descent third. Two other winners earlier in the day were Wm. Mikels Rose Bane, who graduated from the maiden ranks in defeating a band of two-year-olds over five furlongs in the opening event and Mrs. V. Sovinskis Uncle Walter, who took the six-furlong second.
