Hannaway Disqualified After Finishing First Award Power Pal Top Money; Jackie Declared After Runaway By J. J. HAHN CAHOKIA DOWNS, East St. Louis, 111., June 5. The St Louis-owned Pat Doian stables Hannaway, a little raced three-year-olds son of Faultless, finished on top for the first time here Tuesday night in the five furlongs Jerseyville Purse, the head-liner on a good eight-race program but his number remained but a short while in the top slot as the stewards disqualified the swift-running gelding and placed Sale and McClungs Power Pal, a four-year-old son of Roguish Pal, in the top rung. A. P. Hen-sleys Ls Pride was third in the nine-horse field. There was a long delay in getting the field away from the starting gate and equally as long a time in hanging up the show payoff. In the first place, Delbert T. Crabtrees Jackie, on whom more than ,000, had been wagered, became fractious at the post, threw his rider and when he lost his bridle went for a jaunt around the track and finally made it out of the gap in the one mile and one-sixteenth chute and took off for the barn area. A few moments later it was announced that Jackie was declared. ; Then came the disqualification and on top of that a long delay in the show pay-off when an error was found in the totals in the show pool on the infield odds-board. To return to the actual running of the main event, jockey J. J. Hanley had Hannaway in front at the start after shaking off Rocky Lou. Before reaching the turn for home the Faultless gelding bore out slightly as Power Pal, who had some trouble shortly after the start, attempted to come through next to the rail. As Power Pal was sent through next to the rail and probably would have passed the early leader Hannaway drifting in, closed the opening and forced jockey Terry Murphy, who rode Power Pal, to take up. Immediately after the finish the stewards ordered the inquiry sign posted on the odds-board and after conferring with both riders the numbers were reversed. It was the first disqualification of the current meeting. Featuring the Thursday night racing program is the Carlinville Purse, a seven-furlongs dash for three-year-olds and upward and to be used as the sixth race. Entered here are Chance Snow, All Tilly, My Blue Baby, Demon Bo, Lewis A. D., Paddys Pal and Fergies Mon.-
