Judy Dunn Duplicates Recent Detroit Score Assumes Command in Stretch And Goes On to Beat Gallantry FAIR GROUNDS, Detroit, Mich., June 12. — A mid-week crowd estimated at 15,000 turned out for todays sport at Detroit, braving the threat of rain. The track dried out to be fast following light overnight rains and warmer weather greeted the patrons. Two features held most of the interest as the Windsor Handicap and the Mt. Clemens Purse came up for decision. Judy Dunn, racing for C. A. Tanner, accounted for the six-furlong first race to repeat her score earlier In the meeting. The daughter of Carlaris was rated close to the early pace set by Sparker and Yankee Notions, saved ground on the rail and went to the front with a rush in the stretch to be a length and a half before Gallantry from the stable of M. H. Van Berg. Third, half a length away, came D. Zakoors fast-finishing Old Smokey. The winner was overlooked in the wagering to return 6.80 and was timed in 1:15. She was ridden by apprentice Donald Adams. From a good start, Sparker spurted into a clear lead but was soon displaced in the van position by Yankee Notions, as On Board was next in line before the eventual winner. Entering the stretch, Adams sent his charge through on the inside as Yankee Notions was through. After a brief duel with On Board, Judy Dunn drew clear gradually and was clear at the end. Gallantry had never been far out of it and in the drive he moved into second place but was hard pressed to stave off the belated rush of Old Smokey.
