Drawing out with authority at the end of the 6,025 Juvenile Stakes, Dr. and Mrs. Leon Levys Lil Fella carried the white and blue silks of the Jaclyn Stable to the end of the five furlongs a length-and a half before Maine Chance Farms Juwels Reward, a "field horse." Warner Stables favored Levelation was just a head farther back and two lengths before Alexander J. Ostrikers Nisht Amool, the only stakes winner in the field of 14 juvenile colts and geldings. Willie Hartack rode the winning son of Nirgal Radio Timer by Eight Thirty, and whipped him left handed most of the way down the chute in :56, just four-fifths slower than Jet Masters track mark estab-Mshed in the National Stallion Stakes of 19511951. The crowd of 21,431 somewhat neglected Lil Fella, who paid 4.90. The victory was the twenty-first stakes triumph of the year for Willie Hartack. Third Start of Career Lil Fella had won a maiden race at Gar-der State for his debut, then finished third behind Nisht Amool and Bolero TJ. in the Cherry Hill Stakes at that track on May 22.

Alliance was a fairly close fourth at this point, followed by Nasco and Lil Fella, who. was racing down on the inside, with Hartack trying to keep him from dropping down toward the inside rail. Nearing the stands, Jewels Reward took command as Jimmer began to falter, but was only a head before Levelation, while .Lil Fella had moved up rapidly on the inside and was a flying third. Just inside the furlong pole, Lil Fella took command and drew away steadily, while Jewels Reward held the favorite safe. Nisht Amool, who was rather sluggish the early stages, finished well for the" minor share of the purse while Nasco Bold Rulers brother ran an even race all the way, finishing fifth, followed by the tiring Jimmer. Alliance Shows Some Speed Rose Trellis was back in the pack all the way, finishing seventh before Alliance, who showed a flash of speed in the middle stages. Night Hour, Etoka, Air Chief, Uncle Ralph, Another Art and Wine Jr. completed the field and had no excuses after the first few strides in which one or two of them might have been bumped in the jamming that occurred immediately after the start. Mrs. Mary H. Hunters homebred Salamanca led throughout the Northport Purse that preceded the Juvenile to triumph by length and one-half over John M. Schiff s Wavy Navy, wholed Mrs. W. Thorn Kissels Soin by the same margin at the end of and mile and one-sixteenth in 1:44. Ogden Phipps Ambulance finished fairly well to be fourth, only a neck out of the money and a half length before her stable-mate, Wheatley Stables Untamed. The entry was favored and Untamed tired badly while racing on the rail through the upper stretch where it is still deep passing the straight course. Salamanca was ridden by Conn McCreary and paid 2.00. Mrs. Hunter is the daughter of Hal Price Head-ley and the winners pedigree is typical Headley, Revoked Salaminia, by Man O War. Salaminia was a stakes winner for the master of Beairmont Farm. W. Haggin Perrys Miocene, a first-time starter from the first crop by Oil Capitol, drew out at the end of the third race, a dash for maiden juveniles at five furlongs on the Widener straightaway, to score by a length and one-half over A. J. Meslers Paradise Peak, who headed Ethel E. Peppers Little Leaguer, with Claiborne Farms Biplane, the favorite, another five lengths out of the money. John Choquette rode the winner who paid 7.70 and sped the distance in a respectable :58. Paradise Peak was claimed by W. C. Partee, while Isidor Bieber took Biplane, both going for 2,500.
