Try Flying in Popular Triumph at Detroit Oval Memphis Bud Handy Five-Length Winner of First Race on Card DETROIT, Mich., June 19.— The first three races on todays twilight card at the Detroit Fair Grounds were won by horses who either took the top at the break, or soon afterwards, and held their advantage for the rest of the way. In the opening six-furlong dash jockey R. Haber sent Myrtle Maroon Stables I Memphis Bud into a five-length lead in the opening furlong and he maintained that margin throughout to lead home Fourth Estate and Charge. The track was slow and the gelded son of Sweep Like ran the six furlongs in 1:16 Vs. Try Flying, owned and trained by Al Wellman, broke on top in the second of the Daily Double events and made every marker a winning one in the role of an even money choice. At the finish he held a two-length lead over Through Train as the latter was a length to the good of Okoole Maluna. In the third, T. C. Melroses Blue Mate was an odds-on choice, but finished a dead last in the field of five competing. Tommys Double wasnt the first out of the gate, that honor going to Hustling Tom but he soon assumed command and after repeling challenges of Count Gold, who pegged the pace, drew off to a two-length accounting. Hustling Tom ran third. The winner paid 2.60 and ran the three-quarters distance in a moderate 1:17%.
