KLEBERG High Gun carried his King Ranch colors successfully in the Peter Pan Handicap. Whips Bugledrums By Twelve Lengths Harry N. Eads Homebred Is Superior to Four Rivals on Heavy Lincoln Fields Track By J. J. MURPHY LINCOLN FIELD, Crete, 111., June 5. Sir Mango, clever four-year-old owned by Harry N. Eads, of Dayton, Ohio, and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., will never have an easier time winning a race than he did in the Edward J. Fleming Memorial Handicap here this afternoon. Ridden by Dave Erb, the brown son of Gilded Knight never got out of an ordinary gallop on the heavy holding track and won by 12 lengths from Sam Wilsons Bugledrums, who, in turn, was two and one-half lengths in advance of Heutel, star of the Sportsmans Park meeting. En Fleur, erstwhile half-mile track .favbritj was fourth, and Chombro, a faraway f if jH in the five-horse field. Four of the racers entered originally were withdrawn, which accounted for the fact that no show betting was held on the contest. The withdrawals were Arab Actress, Ruhe, Screemin Jack, and Sunny Dale. Sir Mango, an odds-on choice, paid .00 in the seven-furlong affair, and his timeM for the trip was 1:37, which demon-1 strates just how difficult was the goingfl Heutel was first to appear in front, but! Sir Mango soon took over. 1 Bids Company Adieu 1 After racing a couple of lengths in ad-1 vance of his closest rival to the far turn Sir Mango decided to bid his company adieu. He opened up a six-length lead rounding the stretch turn and was merely coasting at the finish, with Erb having a tight hold on him. It was Sir Mangos second stakes win of the session, he having accounted for a division of the Crete Inaugural on opening day. He earned 1,100 in victory. The weather took a turn for the better this afternoon and a crowd of 14,050 turned out. Early pari-mutuel business indicated a "handle" of approximately ,000,000 for the day. The racing strip was cloddy and running time in all events was very slow. Seaward, from the successful Hasty House Farm, was favored in the secondary feature here this afternoon, but apparently did not care particularly for the heavy, holding going and was unplaced in the eight-horse field. Living Doll, who raced for a ,000 claiming price at Sportsmans Park, was a surprise victor with Blue Dare, another outsider, being second, and Scrutinized, who was coupled with Dance Nsing, Continued on Page Forty-Eight Sir Mango Facile Winner of Fleming Shows Way to Bugledrums by Twelve Lengths at Lincoln On Heavy Holding Strip Continued from Page One finishing third. Living Doll, who was ridden by Job Dean Jessop, paid 6.40. The distance was seven furlongs, and Blue Dare made the pace, with Living Doll close up on the inside and the latter taking command in the stretch. They finished well in advance of the others, with Living Doll showing a length and a half margin at the end. Seaward, a recent winner here, was ridden by Johnny Adams and was close up in the middle of the track during the first part of the melee. He displayed nothing when called upon in the late stages. Jockey Al Popara, of Hayward, Calif., proved himself to be something of a "mud bug" in riding three of the first four winners. Al began his streak with Insulation, a maiden who was an outsider in the second, came back with Jesse Foray, the second choice in the third, and continued with Top Spinner, one of the neglected ones in the fourth. Insulation Scores in Second After the Illinois-bred Mr. Neal had taken the opening race in the silks of Locust Lawn Farm and trimmed the short-priced favorite, Fancy Reward, Insulation completed a 71.20 Daily Double in winning the second from Chance Cloud, who was the public choice. Apprentice Tommy ONeil rode Mr. Neal, who had never won a race until this afternoon. King Fiddle was favored over Jessie Foray in the third, which was for maiden two-year-olds, and got to the front early, but Jessie Foray, carrying the Bishop silks, forged to the front of him on the inside in the stretch to win by well over two lengths. Jessie Foray, by Foray Array Stepping Out, by Halcyon, was making her ninth start and her second at the meeting. Admirals Pet was the favorite in the fourth, but was unable to "trot, pace, or gallop" in the going and trailed for practically the entire distance with His rider holding her together, apparently fearing that she would miss her footing. Top Spinner, the successful one, had not won a race in any of his previous 27 starts and graduated here. The distance was one and one-sixteenth miles. Old Forge, who graduated from the maiden ranks in his last race, came right back with a good effort to take the fifth. With jockey Ronnie Baldwin doing a good job of rating, Old Forge made an opportune move in the middle of the track through the stretch to win by four lengths from Rubes Folly, one of the favorites
