Calloway K. Fancies Off Track at Maumee Downs Favored Low Sky Runs Second; Heavy Rain Cuts Crowd to 2,200 By T. J. MULLIGAN Staff Correspondent - MAUMEE DOWNS, Maumee, Ohio, May 11. — The track todaywas a sea of slop due to the torrential rains that descended upon this sector about nojon and cut the attendance to an estimated 2,200. Calloway, K., a ,bay son of Steel Heels, owned and conditioned by R. Clark, made his initial appearance here an auspicious one when he registered by a half length in the second race here today. He had been idle since January, his last time in competition being at the Charles Town Course in West Virginia. He relished the sloppy going here and charged up on the outside under the astute handling of jockey Vic Bovine, leading reinsman for top riding honors at the moment. , Low Sky, from the barn of C. C. Bennett, was second after being installed as the choice. A. Balmers Chelsea D. was third, three and one-half lengths back of Low Sky.. The winner, entirely overlooked in the wagering, paid 7.00 straight and traveled the 6 furlongs in 1:17% in the slop. Jockey Jimmy Fowler, who is riding with considerable success, being third in the race for leading saddlesmith honorsr added another win to his tally to give him 24 for the meeting to date when he crossed the finish line by four and one-half lengths astride C. W. Straus Dee My Darlin in the third race on the agenda. Royal Rouge, owned and trained by H. J. White, finished second a half-dozen lengths .to .the good of B. Fenters Intrajade. E. Cantlons Cedar Lawn appeared to dislike the sloppy going and finished last in the eight-horse field, trailing from start to finish.
