Johnnie J. Disqualified In Delaware Park Event Award Hoosier Wolf Top Honors After Being Crowded on Turn STANTON, Del., June 12.— One of the few disqualifications in the history of Dela-: ware Park occurred in the six-furlong second race today. Johnnie J., owned by Parke S. Moreland and ridden by Ray Adair, scored by a length and a quarter while running the distance in 1:1345 under 126 pounds. Phoebe Phillips Hoosier Wolf was second, and Mrs. Dorothy D. Millers La Reinette third. However, on the bend as Hoosier Wolf was leading and Johnnie J. moved up to try to wrest command from his rival, the latter lugged in and Hoosier Wolf not only was squeezed back, but Torres foot hit the inner rail. Torres claimed a foul after limping into ; the scale room and the stewards took Johnnie J. clear out of the money, as is I the case in New York since this track operates under The Jockey Club rules. Revised placings moved second and third horses into first and second, with C. J. Meisters Headoverheels becoming third officially. The pay-off on Hoosier Wolf was 7.80. About 8,500 were on hand on a balmy afternoon and the track was nearing its best after three days of showers.
