Bonnie Beryl Carries On When Stablemate Falters Hypnotic Gives Way in Drive in Delaware Oaks; Red Shoes Second DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del. June 5. — Bonnie Beryl, a three-year-old daughter of Fighting Fox and Bonnie Maginn, carried the white, red-spotted silks of William Woodwards Belair Stud to a thrilling victory in the eighth running of the mile and a furlong Delaware Oaks, but a share of the credit must go to her stablemate, Hypnotic, who finished fourth in the field. Responding to the clever handling of jockey Jimmy Stout, Bonnie Beryl charged past the early pacemakers when asked and captured the 3,970 purse with four lengths to spare over Mrs. Robert H. Heighes Proverb, with Howell E. Jacksons Red Shoes another two and a half lengths behind. Hypnotic was another length and a half behind the htird horse. Bonnie Beryls time was a commendable 1:51. Hypnotic may have been the more highly-regarded of the Belair tandem having made her abundance on early speed count in winning in the Coaching Club American Oaks from Red Shoes and Bonnie Beryl but it was the latter who had her running shoes on today. Hypnotic, however, handled her given assignment in excellent fashion. When the nine-horse field left starter George Palmers gate, apprentice Paul Miller sent Hypnotic to the front and quickly obtained the rail position. Red Shoes also exhibited her vaunted speed and had joined the Belair miss rounding the turn. This pair raced as a team to the half-mile pole, reeling off the first four furlongs in :46ft. Stout was content to follow the pace in fourth position with Bonnie Beryl, advancing a notch midway of the backstretch. Hypnotic began to shorten her stride at that stage of the race and Stout, sensing that fact, sent Bonnie Beryl after the leaders. Once she commenced her move, it was quite apparent that she was not to be denied for she literally flew by the first flight with ground-gaining strides. Once having taken the lead turning for home, Stout had only to keep her on a straight course as she drew into her four-length winning advantage.
