SilksofH.P.Metcalf In Double at Suffolk Scotch Abbot and Night Bomber Win for Providence Sportsman BOSTON, Mass., June 28.— Scotch Abbot carried the yellow and red silks of Houghton P. Metcalf, Providence, R. I., sportsman, to their second triumph of the afternoon, an allowance sprint offering that topped todays program at Suffolk Downs as the eighth week of racing got under way. Night Bomber, in the third, was the other Metcalf winner. Both were bred by their owner at his Virginia nursery. In the feature it was Queens Risk, racing for Mrs. Kathleen L. Huntley, that took the place, after having raced in front for a good part of the trip. It was only by a neck that the Huntley gelding gained his share of the purse over John R. Ma-combers Proration. Scotch Abbot paid 5.60 and raced the six furlongs in 1:11%. The test carried a purse of ,875 and was exclusively for three-year-olds. Bold Dan, a recent arrival from the Metropolitan circuit, drew the bulk of the support, but failed to cut any figure in the running, coming to the end of the trip in advance of all but the trailing Adroit.
