All Fight Ordered Withdrawn When Lame at Starting Point JAMAICA, L. I., N. Y.. June 29.— The obscure official, indigenous to New York tracks — the veterinarian at the starting point — made his presence felt as Empire Citys sport began at Jamaica today, when he recommended the scratching of the favored All Fight, who was lame. Some 0,-000 was wagered on Air Fight, whom the stewards duly ordered withdrawn with the usual refund. This unexpected development left Ap-heins Ankylos the favorite to beat nine other unremarkable two-year-olds at five and a half furlongs, the Stimulus gelding obliging when D. Reinz drove him to the leading Boysan in the short stretch run and won by a neck. Hutch was a distant third. The winner paid .70 and the time in the slop was 1:0835.
