Outsider Jims Pal Gets Nose Decision at Ascot Rewards Backers 09.60; Gives Jockey Snyder Double on Program By Staff Correspondent ASCOT PARK, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. May 2. — Jockey Joe Snyder completed a riding double aboard James R. Palmers Jims Pal much to the delight of the long-shot players in the crowd of 4,800 and the win was worth 09.60. When the official sign was posted on the board Jims Pal scored by a scant nose over Gordon Thompsons Manipulator who was only a neck in front of George Holdens Wink Proof at the end of the 4i furlongs dash over the Ascot course. Jims Pal who normally campaigns around the minor Maryland circuit, broke right to the front in todays dash, racing in advance of Melzar who drew a good bit of support in the co-feature here today. Melzar chucked it after 3 furlongs leaving Snyder with a two-length lead at the head of the lane but kept after his Laount who has a tendency to tire suddenly. Snyders alertness paid off as his mount started to shorten stride in the late stages and Manipulator charged strongly in the middle of the track and Wink Proof came with a rush along the rail. However, Jims Pal had enough left to stick it out by a nose while racing the distance in :52*s. The pair of victories lifted Snyders total to 12 at the meeting enough to place him in fifth place in the jockeys standings. Cremona Farms Everest, a six-time winner in these haunts last season, picked up his first purse of the year in the third race of the day as he scored by a neck over Falzarano and Halperns Tropical Air. Outrun as usual in the early stages of the 1 1-16 miles test, the flying gray came from ninth position in the early running to carry I Floyd Green home to victcry while racing i the distance in 1:49%. Everest paid .00 ,and the win was Greens ninth of the ! meeting.
