Helis and Buxton Maintain Family Prestige With Wins MONMOUTH PARK, Oceanport, N. J.. June 29. — Two "juniors" carried on well for their late fathers on Thursday "s racing card at Monmouth Park. William G. Helis, Jr., whose interest in the sport has not waned since the untimely passing of his father, saw his silks carried to victory by Top Spring in the fifth race. In the sixth event M. A. Buxton saddled Sky Prince to win in the silks of his young wife. A year ago he was a member of Monmouths saddle colony, becoming a trainer when increasing weight forced him to hang up his tack. His father, Merritt C. Buxton, died several months ago from a lingering Illness, but "junior," in saddling his third winner of the session, is doing well in his own right.
