Maine Chance Colt Leads Throughout Bank Balance, Overnight, Cid Play Stage Tight Fit For Place at Arlington ARLINGTON PARK, Arlington Heights, 111., June 27. Harveys Pal, a colt who displayed exceptional promise as a two-year-old but who failed to train well for the Santa Anita Derby and the early spring fixtures, flew Mrs. Elizabeth N. Grahams colors to an impressive victory in the Salvator Purse here this afternoon before a crowd of 16,000 well pleased spectators. A heavy favorite in the wagering, the brown son of Bull Dog Sun Celtic came home an easy winner in the one mile test that was run in the creditable time of 1:38. At the finish the colt was two and three-quarters lengths ahead of Virden and Scotts Bank Balance, while R. Cudahys Overnight took the show from Mrs. A. M. Creechs Cid Play. After todays splendid victory, it may be that the Maine Chance outfit will place its main hopes on Harveys Pal in the 0,000 Classic Stakes to be run here on July 27. Although never a stakes winner, the colt won four of his five starts as a two-year-old, and he had raced once previously this season when he failed to impress in the Francis S. Peabody Memorial at Hawthorne. Under Strong Hold in Early Stages Harveys Pal was a running horse all the way today, and if his rider, Johnny Adams, had pressed him. with any degree of animation today he probably would have opened up several lengths at the asking. As it was, Adams was content to sit still .with a strong hold on the Maine Chance sophomore going down the backstretch, and he didnt call on him for anything that resembled speed until he was well straignt-ened out in the stretch. At that point the chunky little Iola, Kansas, lad reached down and slashed Harveys Pal a couple of times to keep him from pulling himself up. He responded well to this treatment and drew away. The battle for the place produced all the action in the race, with Bank Balance, Overnight, and Cid Play crossing the line in a blanket finish. They were noses apart and fighting desperately. Overnight ran an especially fine race, for he elected to force the early pace established by Harveys Pal. He dropped back slightly at the head of the stretch and was brought to the outside where he came with a fine burst of speed. Bank Balance and Cid Play were in the second flight during the early part and they made their moves together. The Potoma, secondary feature that was Continued oh Paoe Thirty i l l ; I ! I . I i t I i . , - Harveys Pal Gains Impressive Triumph at Arlington Park Continued from Page One contested at six furlongs gave the favorite players a pleasant surprise when the odds-on choice, Hollyman, from the Mrs. G. H. Emick barn, came bounding through the stretch with a rush to catch the leaders a sixteenth out, then draw away by a length and a half. The Shadybrook Farms Merry March showed a fine effort to finish a neck in front of Miss Tartan, owned by J. L. and C. J. Allgeir. The winner completed the distance in 1:11 under the smooth handling of Doug Dodson. Dodson kept after Hollyman going down the backstretch when the gelding dropped back while Miss Tartan and Syls Bobby went out to set a fast early pace. The fav-s orite began to find his best racing stride on the turn and cutting through on the in-i side, he saved considerable ground, and at the head of the stretch he came out slightly for the drive. He gradually wore down the leaders, and in the closing stages he was pulling away in handy fashion. The "Daily Double" races found Mrs. M. T. Hartmans In Silver driving to a well-earned victory in the opener, while the Bomar Stables Wilmar was a front-running victor in the second race. The pair returned 13.40 in the Double. D. A. Rosenbaums Lady Phara, an out- sider who displayed some fine speed at Suffolk Downs before heading in this direction, was winner in the third when she came off a stiff early pace to draw off into an easy lead nearing the finish to register by three and one-half lengths.
