DIETRICH Delaware, O., Sept. 18 (UP) Ensign Hanover, a little chestnut colt from the Kentucky Bluegrass, won the $36,000 Little Brown Jug pacing classic today before an estimated 20,000 harness racing fans. The son of Billy Direct, owned by Castleton Farms of Lexington, Ky., swept into the lead on the final turn of the three-horse final heat, then beat off everything His Lady had to offer in the stretch to take the winner's $17,679.32 share of the purse. Also in the final dash was the first heat winner, Royal Chief, owned by E. P. Cray of Bellows Falls, Vt., second most popular entry. HIS LADY, a brown filly owned by J. N. Davis of Clayton, Del., the third heat winner, went into the lead In the final pace with Joe Hyian driving. The Ensign, driven by Wayne (Curly) Smart, a substitute driver, was the last horse into the first turn but. moved past Royal Chief in the back stretch. Veteran Tom Berry drove The Chief after relinquishing the reins to young Del Cameron in the first three heats. The Chief faded after the turn and for the last three quarters it was a two-horse race. The Ensign waited until the stretch to make its bid and came home with a precision stride that His Lady couldn't match. His Lady jumped away in front at the start of the third heat. With little Joe Hylan driving, the J. M. Davis filly stayed in front all the way and neither Ensign Hanover nor Royal Chief could get through the pack. The jam dropped the time to 2:05', slowest of the first three. THE ENSIGN WON the second heat with a time of 2:03 its best record on a half-mile track. Royal Chief had hung up a snappy 2:02 in the first, making the two heats the fastest ever paced by 3-year-olds on a half-mile oval. The winner was bred by the Hanover Shoe Farms and purchased as a yearling for $3,000 by Mrs. James B. Johnson, owner of Castleton. The sire, Billy Direct set the current world mile record of 1:55 for pacers. His Lady won second money of $8,839.67 on the strength, of her fourth places In the first two heats and the third heat triumph that put her in the final brush. THIRD PLACE AND $5,303.93 went to Royal Chief. Quick Trick, owned by Dr. G. Bach Gill of Washington, D.C., and Honest Truth, owned by M. McKlnley Kirk of Washington Courthouse, O., each took down $1,767.93 for fourth and fifth. The times for the four heats of 2:02, 2:03', 2:05' and2:07tt were only one-quarter of a second over the world record of 8:13 for 3-year-old pacers. Butler Practices Aerial Offensive Indications that the Butler University Bulldogs may use an aerial attack against the Eastern Illinois State eleven Sept. 28 when both teams open their 1946 seasons at the bowl were given in the practice session yesterday afternoon. .
