Tetra Tetra Rock Rock Triumphs Triumphs Over Over Pig Pig Tails; Tails; Marriage Marriage Impresses Impresses in in Florida Florida Trial Trial Leads Throughout At Gables Course Apprentice Permane Drives Phillips Gelding Home as His Third Winner on Program CORAL GABLES, Fla., April 5.— L. Phillips Tetra Rock upset some calculations at Tropical Park this afternoon when in a good game race he was winner of the Shawsheen Purse after having carried all the pace. To win he took the measure of M. Shagrins Pig Tails, the mare that built up a reputation racing under the silks of Herbert M. Woolf s Woolf ord Farm, and third was the portion of the successful W. W. Crenshaws Zaca Rosa. Pig Tails, on her acknowledged class, was the choice of the company, but she had not been to the races since the middle of February and was just a bit short. The running of the feature gave Bobby Permane his third winner of the day, for he had won earlier with both Count Did and Spare Room. The lad from Camden has become such a favorite with the customers that it took some of the sting out of Tetra Rock having beaten Pig Tails. Blue Pom First to Show in Front From a good start, from which Blue Pom was first to show from the stalls, Tetra Rock stepped by to show the way and, once safely in command, he never gave way. F. A. Smith was soon chasing after the Rolls Royce gelding with Pig Tails and, through the early stages, he had the mare under a slight restraint. Then, after Zaca Rosa moved up on her, Smith shook up the daughter of Insco and, rounding into the stretch, he made a definite effort to run down Tetra Rock. In the final drive Pig Tails hung badly and Tetra Rock, never tiring, was still a length and a half clear crossing the line. Zaca Rosa had faltered badly under the drive and was beaten a like distance for the place, while the other three in the small field — Martian. Hill Sun and Blue Pom — had cut no figure in the running. The Salem Purse, a test of a rrtle and a sixteenth, brought a favorite score when Mrs. D. H. Peters Comenow outgamed Mrs. R. Feinbergs Tidy Reward and Scottsville, who won over Comenow in their previous meeting. Here Jamoke cut out the early running but was closely attended by Comenow and Scottsville and of the trio it was Scottsville that weakened in the stretch run, while Tidy Reward moved up and battled right along with the son of Menow to the last stride only to lose by a neck. E. Campbell had the winning mount and Comenow, as always the choice, paid .90. I 1 - ■ 1 -
