Third * r DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June — Mrs. William E. Snells Toreador, a notoriously good off-track campaigner, found the sloppy track to his liking this afternoon and scored a two-length victory while being ridden out in the featured Tatnall Purse. Mrs. Henry S. Clarks Puppet took a narrow decision from Palatine Stables favored Yes You for the place. A torrential downpour not only affected racing strip, but it deterred many potential racegoers in this sector, with the result that only about 8,000 fans were in attendance. Toreador was the second choice at .60 and was timed in 1:12% six furlongs while accounting for his third purse in eight starts this season. Mike Caffarella. substituting for Nick Jemas, who failed to arrive from New Jersey for his engagement atop Toreador, broke his mount a bit slowly but refused become disturbed, evidently having received orders to take it easy through the early stages. Yes You, in the meantime, sprinted into a commanding three-length advantage, a margin he retained around turn. Puppet, a factor from the start, moved within striking distance of the leader turning into the homelane, as Toreador charged along the inside with a menacing rush. This same rush proved too much for the weakening leaders and Toreador moved to fore and drew clear. Puppet was but nose ahead of Yes You. The largest "Daily Double" pay-off of L * r the meeting— ,061.70 — was posted after Paul Toreks New Pomp and Thorncliff Farms Quarter-Master accounted for their respective races.
