I., N. Y., June 14.— Cain Hoy Stables Hushaby Baby scored a mild upset at Aqueduct today in the Fifty-seventh running of the Gazelle Stakes, charging to the finish almost two lengths before Hal Price Headleys Aesthete. Ethel D. Jacobs Hadassah was a nose farther back and three and a half lengths before F. Eugene Dixon, Jr.s Dinewisely. None of the others in the field of nine sophomore fillies, including Joe W. Browns favored Parading Lady, were ever serious contenders. Ray York rode Hushaby Baby smoothly, slipping through on the rail to take the lead from Aesthete entering the backstretch and holding sway the rest of the mile and a sixteenth in a moderate 1:45% over a lightning fast track. Hushaby Baby, who had blinkers added to her equipment, paid 4.30 for each ticket and added 9,325 to the account of Harry F. Guggenheim, master of Cain Hoy Stable. 32,293 See Program A crowd of 32,293 turned out in ideal weather, despite the opening of Monmouth Park.

Wacker m.s Jubling, the probable favorite for the Gazelle, was scratched late in the afternoon.
