: Bully Boy Finishes In Clear at Detroit Has Four and Half Lengths Advantage Oyer Bee Lee Tee In Sault Ste. Marie Purse By DON FAIR Staff Correspondent DETROIT, Mich., June 2.— Bully Boy, a four-year-old son of Bull Dog and Farmerette, carried the silks of Mrs. Otto C. Neumanns The Farm to a popular victory here today in the Sault Ste. Marie Purse. Splendidly handled by Darrell Madden, the Coldstream-bred winner sped to the end of the mile and one-sixteenth four and one-half lengths before his nearest rival, Theodore D. Buhls Bee Lee Tee. Carl Grahams Fancy Flyer, who was making his second appearance of the 1951 season, ran third and he was a length and one-half farther back, while G. A. Cavanaughs Fugitive and Joseph A. Goodwins Ky. Colonel, the only other starters, followed in that order. Bully Boy picked up 108 pounds and raced the distance over the good strip in a commendable 1:46%. Favorite in the totali-sator at 2V2 to 1, the Neumann colt was one of several stoutly backed thoroughbreds to reach the winners circle here this pleasant afternoon. Ky. Colonel Gives Way Badly Bully Boy began alertly when starter John Morrissey sent the small Sault Ste. Marie band away from the gate in good "line break." Ky. Colonel, however, dashed up to the command before reaching the first turn and the Goodwin homebred entered the backstretch with a two-length lead while Bully Boy raced along steadily in second position and Bee Lee Tee occupied third place within striking distance of the pacemaker. Ky. Colonel gave way badly when challenged by Bully Boy as Bee Lee Tee then charged up to engage the ultimate winner. Fancy Flyer, who was far back to the upper turn, also moved into serious contention and he was only three lengths off the leader turning into the home lane. During the run to the wire, Madden hand rode Continued on Page Thirty-Nine Bully Boy Carries Off Sault Ste. Marie Purse Downs Bee Lee Tee by Four and Half Lengths in Detroit Event Continued from Page One Bully Boy, his mount drawing clear while Bee Lee Tee held on willingly to achieve second honors and Fancy Flyer finished third. Fugitive took fourth money after Ky. Colonel was eased during the last furlong hopelessly beaten. Cloudy weather and a mild threat of rain undoubtedly cut the attendance down but a crowd of approximately 17,d00 witnessed the half -holiday sport. Although a flash storm visited the Motor City area last night, the racing strip was good for the first race this afternoon and it improved as the day progressed. Pollard and Harkins Ever Bright, a Calumet-bred filly, the get of Sun Again and Still Blue, proved best of the six two-year-olds contesting the four and one-half furlongs third. Although Ever Bright entered the stretch with a clear advantage, jockey Arthur Monteiro plied whip and boot in vigorous fashion, the victress speeding to the wire with a six-length advantage over C. E. Buckleys Red Romeo, favorite in the dash. Two lengths away, Mrs. J. Segrettos Xippi Pigeon finished third and Mrs. J. H. Woodcocks Bold Sab ran fourth. Ever Bright, winner of her previous outing at Churchill Downs, was second choice at .60 and was timed in :53%. Buckley and Locklears Grey Arrow, winner in two Florida engagements this year, was good enough to beat four other three-year-olds in the mile Upper Peninsular Purse. Apprentice George Walker rounded, out a saddle double astride the winner, who beat Mrs. E. E. Dale Shaffers favored Creep Mousie a length and one-half. White and Thomas Our Sister closed fast to get the short end of the purse and she was but a half length off the choice at the finish. McKinnon and Westphals Meyersdale, rid- den by young George Walker, won the first race carded here for Michigan-owned horses, but had to withstand a foul claim before the result was made off icial. Meyers-dale, who won his previous local start, appeared to bother T. D. Buhls favored Crack Reward slightly passing the half-mile pole, but jockey Chuck Headley, who had the mount on the choice, was overruled after lodging his objection. Crack Reward was a length and three-quarters off the victor and a length before Tick Tock Stables Cock Crow, third in the field of eight. M. T. Hendricks Diphda broke down badly after three furlongs while Cock Crow-pulled up lame and H and H Stables Big Casino, fourth in the dash, came out of his engagement sore. Thirteen horses were named, for the Michigan owners "ace this morning, but at scratch time connections for seven of the starters asked to withdraw, five of the scratches were honored by the stewards. Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Cohens Nicotine Gal, benefitted by a hustling ride from apprentice Sherman Armstrong, beat I. J. Collins* favored Sweep Tiger a length and one-half in the three-quarters mile second event. Just a length away Al Wellmans Copperstone, a double winner in Ohio, ran third with G. S. Kilpatricks Minnesinger lasting to salvage fourth money. Nicotine Gal completed her trip in 1:14%, paid .20 as second choice, and coupled with Meyersdale in the Daily Double, was good for 2.40 in the special pool.
