Toluene Toluene Best Best in in Black Black Eyed Eyed Susan; Susan; Bases Bases Full Full Leads Leads Brave Brave Pilot Pilot Home Home Phipps Pair Holds Sway in Rancocas Ambiorix Filly Has Two Lengths Edge on Stablemate As Chalvedele Runs Third By WILLIAM C. PHILLIPS GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May 13.— The Wheatley Stable entry of Bases Full and Brave Pilot completely outclassed their opposition running over a sloppy track in the sixth edition of the Rancocas Stakes here this afternoon, finishing first and second and widening over their opposition Bases Full, ridden by Sam Boulmetis, was going handily in the final yards while besting her stablemate by two lengths. Brave Pilot finished-courageously under a steady drive by jockey John Cho-quette and she was second by four and one-half lengths over Irvin Davids Chalvedele. Mrs. Burdette S. Wright Jr.s Improve was fourth in the field of 12 juvenile fillies, another neck out of the money. Te invading entry from New York was held at even-money by a. crowd of 18,339 attending- in dreary, rainy weather, and they returned .00, .60, .20, across the board. The track turned to watery slop just before the sixth race and the winners time under 116 pounds was 1:01 and, which was not to be compared with the faster time of :59% registered by Mrs. Walter M. Jef-fords Ypres in the third race due to the changed condition of the course. The Rancocas Purse grossed 8,850 and was worth 5,877 to Wheatley Stable owner, Mrs. Henry Carnegie Phipps. -The winning daughter of Ambiorix— Striking was winning her. second race in four starts and increased her personal fortune as the winner by 2,077.50. Sainted Devil Breaks Fast Briardale Farms Sainted Devil opened up on the field so fast it appeared the rest of the field was in another race at the beginning of the Rancocas. She sped out tothree lengths in front and increased the margin to eight on the turn. Bases Full immediately settled into closest pursuit while Brave Pilot broke midway the field and raced into third place around rivals on the turn. Sainted Devil stopped almost as abruptly as she began on the stretch turn Boulmetis had Bases Full under the whip • taking command and maintained punishment into the final sixteenth, where he permitted her to coast the final yards Mooring Stables Tempted won the six-furlong Barnegat Purse by eight open lengths, playfully romping through the stretch run in a style suggesting she would have been a match for any filly An the country today. Apprentice James Kirk was easing her in hand as she wafted away from Carolyn K. Stables Dance Card, who was second by three and one-half lengths over C. S. Handelmans Bonnie A. Nick Ermlers Blue Charm was another head behind and third after participating among a quartet who challenged the pace through a quarter in :22% and a half mile in :46%. Tempted, favored at 7-to-10, completed the sprint under 110 pounds in 1:11%. The track was turning sloppy under the influence of intermittent showers, but this tended to make the course faster as the water packed the sand that has been deep and tiring since the beginning of the meeting. The winning filly, a four-year-old daughter of Half Crown — Enchanted Eve, by Lovely Night, was one of the leaders of her division last year. She won the Alabama, Maskette Handicap and the Jersey Belle in addition to finishing third in the Delaware Oaks and the Gazelle. Earnings for her owner, Mrs. Elizabeth duPont. amounted to 4,081. She won her first start of the season here last week and this afternoon she appeared ready to resume stakes competition at any distance. Tempted broke well and needed no urging to vault lorwardly and join a trio already engaged in combat for command. The four raced as a team down the backstretch and around the turn.

Straightening into the stretch the winner easily assumed command and she waved her tall as if in derision of her rivals as she smoothly drew away. Excitement stirred the crowd with the first action of the day when the favorite and a 50-to-l shot dead-heated, and the suspense was heightened when shortly afterward the objection sign was flashed. Ruff Acres Farms Play Love was the longshot and she was carried wide as she relentlessly drew on even terms with Gene Lottis favored Slim Penny through the final stages of the 6 furlongs. John Choquette, astride Play Love, lodged the objection and it was upheld by the stewards, who dissolved the dead heat and relegated Slim Penny to second. Play Love, a maiden three-year-old Helvetian filly, paid 10.60. The shortest Daily Double pay-off posted was in boxcar figures, and the winning return was 80.60 on Woodland Farms Failed Attack. The three-year-old Fort Salonga filly displayed good conidtion in her first start of the season and she repulsed challengers in the stretch to win going away. She was ridden by apprentice George Gross and returned 1.40 as third choice in the straight wagering.
