Award Inseparable Raceland Purse Mister Morgan Set Back at Homewood Chambers Gelding Bears In On Choice, Tries to Savage Him During Stretch Battle WASHINGTON PARK, Homewood, HI., June 8. — Backers of favorites reaped their first dividend in 15 races when they were paid off on Hasty House Farms Inseparable in the Raceland Purse, featured race here toady. Mister Morgan, a Chilean runner from the barn of J. A. Chambers, finished first but was set back -to second place after the inquiry sign had been posted and the stewards questioned the riders. Inseparable, winner of almost 0,000 in purse money last year and successful in his only previous start this season, made the early pace closely trailed by Mister Morgan. The latter drew up on even terms with his rival in the stretch and then bore in causing Inseparable to be in close quarters and impending the latter to such an extent as to bring about his disqualification. Dr. Ole Nelson jraced to third place. Inseparable was odds- s on and paid but .60. The Raceland was originally slated to be contested over the mile and one-sixteenth grass course, but as track conditions made the turf unsafe it was staged at one mile on the main track. Inseparable, with jockey Ken ChurchTaboard, went to the front at once and was taken under, light restraint while making the pace. Mister Morgan made a determined move after leaving the backstretch and after straightening out for the stretch run it seemed as if he might experience but little trouble taking command. Church, however, had something left with Inseparable and the latter held his ground despite being crowded. Inseparable was in front again about 30 yards out, but Mister Morgan was a head to the good at the end. Sloppy Track for Program Jockey Guilliermo Silva, who was aboard Mister Morgan, apparently made a good effort to keep his mount straight. He stated after the race that Mister Morgan was attempting to "savage" Inseparable during the stretch run. The racing strip was sloppy for the running of todays program and rain fell intermittently throughout the day. At times a haze was formed that made it rather difficult to follow the progress of the horses. A comparatively light crowd of 6..914 was in attendance. After but one favorite had been successful in 25 races, the public pinned its hopes to Rugene in the fifth race. Those wagering on the filly at least had their money refunded as Rugene injured herself in the starting gate when she threw a shoe and was withdrawn. The winner turned up in Joe Graves, a first-time starter who was racing in the silks of the noted Kentuckian, Col. Phil Chinn. The son of Alsab sprinted to the front soon after the start and .was never headed, although roused in the stretch to hold Honest Injun, who ended up as the actual choice. Joe Graves, whose odds on the mutuel board at one time read 25 to 1, was medium of a and paid 4.20. He was ridden by William. Cook. A pair of Illinois-breds came through in the early races when Ruth Murphy won the second and Auto Message took the fourth. Ruth Murphy, appearing for the first time in the silks of William H. Bishop, who claimed her recently, ran away from her field to finish far in front. Auto Message likewise led for virtually the entire trip. ■ i
