Wright Angle Photos Hamanasa at Suffolk - Apprentice F. E. Clayton Pilots Lowe Gelding to Narrow Score SUFFOLK DOWNS. East Boston, Mass., May 4. — R. L. Lowes Wright Angle belied his name but only to those directly in line with the finish line, as he nipped the~fa-vored Hamanasa in the sixth race of a featureless card at Suffolk Downs today. The scantest of noses separated the pair at the end of the six furlongs test, with Harbor-vale Stables Rip Snort about a length off the leaders. Ridden by apprentice F. E. Clayton, Wright Angle appeared to have fallen short despite his late charge but dropped his head as Hamanasa and he crossed the line. That was the difference in the result of a thrilling stretch battle that had three contenders engaged in gaining command inside the final furlong. Rip Snort had taken command from the early leader, Joe-val, as the leaders turned into the stretch, but Hamanasa skirted along the inside to get his head in front passing the sixteenth pole. As Rip Snort had spent his speed, Wright Angle put forth his stout effort and the result was in doubt until the placing judges called on the photo. Negotiating the six furlongs in 1:13, Wright Angle paid .60 for his first victory in the past two years. Followers of the favorites among the 8,602 crowd had to be content with only one success during the earlier races. Goldberg and Myers Checkmate, winner, of the second race, was the only choice to score.
