THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE. XET YORK, TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 1023. SUPERBAS' GREAT SPURT HAS PUT THEM IN TIE FOR SECOND PLACE 1 b fl. St. en n n g Jun Ebbets May Trade Ruether For Third Baseman Traynor; Grimes Beats Pirates Again By THOMAS S. RICE, Staff Correspondent of The Eagle. PITTSBURG, June 5 No definite arrangements have been made for trading Walter (Dutch) Ruether away from the Brooklyn Superbas. but It Is known that the management would consider any offer for him that Involved the receiving of a good and hitting third baseman In return. j President Barney Dreyfuss of the Pittsburg Pirates and President Ebbets of the Superbas had a short conference yesterday and may have asother today. President Ebbets denied that they talked business about Ruether. but they are believed to have conference. 'Pittsburg fans are considerably worked up over the Pirates, as was proven s'esterday when 7,000 or more of them were at the diamond-side on a Monday to see the first game of the Pirates 'Those faithful fans saw the Superbas win by 6 to 8 and thereby tie the Pirates ..for second place, but they also saw Harold (Pie) Traynor, third baseman desired by Brooklyn, make three singles, .once, the force scoring a runner, in five That brought the batting average teen hitting around .350 or over, The power at bat, they like his fielding, and a man thev were not sure would be -"alk of trading Ruether and Andy High for Traynor and another Pirate, ' High .to take Traynor's place at third for Pittsburg. Pittsburg Is said to 'iikve offered the venerable Babe Adams, right-handed pitcher, and Jewell Ens, bard-hitting utility Inflelder, but Adams Is nearly at the end of his rope, and Ens has never been able to hold up in fielding, so that sounds like a pipe ' dream. . . any trading is to be done it will have to be done quickly, as the period for transferring major veterans, except by waivers, ends on June IS, under the rule adopted by the majors as a result of the condemnation which followed the bracing of the Giants and the Yankees at the end of last August. t -tV Players Demand That Ruether Hustle. THE Brooklyn players are taking as much interest in Ruether's future as are the club owners and Uncle Wilbert Robinson. The Superbas are demanding that Ruether hustle and pitch up to his $10,000 salary, . (i- that he be exchanged for men who will help the team. Ordinarily, base-: t all players are exceedingly clannish and protect one of their number to '"the limit, but there are times when they are prone to take the other tack. "This happens to be one of those times, and the Superbas want Ruether .'.ttiher to help win games or make room for someone else who will. What has aroused the Superbas Is that they see a great chance to finish ';'tecond this year, and If August should befall the Giants in the way of unusual misfortunes or over-confidence, the Superbas might even grab the pen-"Tiant. yesterday the Superbas stepped Into a tie for second place and they have an ambition to finish at least that high, financial incentive to stay up. Should World's Series this year in the enlarged Stadium', the Individual share of the receipts distributed under the rules that Twould go to the players on the teams would probably be from $1,200 to $1,600. i-: That would be a most acceptable bonus and reward of merit for every (pan on the second teams and the Superbas are not in a mood to have their rhances imperiled by anybody. J ... One thing certain is that the Brooklyn Club trill under no cir- i cumstances trade Ruether to the Giants, and it would prefer to send I h rn to the Boston Braves if the Braves could offer playing material in return. ... Superbas' Sensational Spurt. w ' HEN they won yesterday and won 17 of their last 24 games, the period Involved beginning on May"?, when the Pirates opened the western invasion of Brooklyn iy beating the Superbas 8 to 6. Before that game the Superbas had won j and lost 12 for a percentage of .3C8, and our old friends, the Athletics, had ion 9 and lost 7. The Superbas were in seventh place on May 8 morning and the Athletics were in fourth place. On the night of June 4, a stretch f exactly four weeks, in which the Superbas had played for a winning percentage of .708, the Superbas were tied for second place with a winning percentage of .535, a gain of 190 points, and the Athletics were second In their league with .361. ' 5 The Athletics were not scheduled, yesterday. Bediming May S. Connie Mack's tpara won 14 and lost 11, or t-e Athletics won three less and lost four more than the Superbas In the same four-week period. Yet, me hearties. Jhe Athletics are being assiduously touted as dirk horses In their race while one well-known commentator sagely remarked last week that the Superbas jvere growing weaker ! If that lad had been a neighbor of the lnte lamented Samson he would have remarked what a pity It was that Samson was letting his luxuriant hair sap his strength. It might be recalled that Harry Harper was the prooklyn pitcher who (ost to the Pirates on Ma,r It was his first and last National League came in his attempted comeback, as he was released next day. Rain postponed the games of May 0 and 10. On May 11, Burleigh Grimes beat the Pirates, 7 to 6. Grimes beat them again yesterday. Another tray o state, the case for. those who wish fa keep tabs on the Superbas' uplift m that they won eight and lost four in I Brooklyn with the Westerners, then won eight and lost three with tht Easterners, following the Westerners, and have won their frst game in the West. f Eight of Eleven For Grimes. RUKLEIGH GRIMES has now beaten the Pirates twice in two start. Also he has won eight of his eleven games this season. That is i . very nifty average, far better thnt he is nt this stage the Grimes nine more games to go before It will ' having played 4" games. y Ever since lie has been in the league. Grimes has yearned to win 25 ; panics in one season, hut has never reached the mark. His best season jwas that of 11)20. in which he won 23 and Inst 13, and last year he won 17 and lost 14. V Grimes should pitch at least twice In the next eight or nine games. ; Normally he will pitch the opening game of the series In St. Louis and 'then in Chicago. If Ue should win those two he would be well on his way to his 25. Gn'i?'e bent the Braves in Boston lnt Tursdny, allowing five hit, of which one was a triple and two were doubles. He allowed the Pirates eleven hits yesterday, and every one of them was a single. What's the answer Home Runs a INNING ypsterriny was largely by Jacques Fournler and i ngnt on jnnnny aiornson, ' pitchers, in the fixth inning. Fournler pulled a normal triple along the J'flrst base line. It skipped gaily to the screen that shuts off the path to Vthe bleachers, found a hole in the wire netting, crawled through and was n homer. ' So were two runs made. McCarren singled to center and that jvould have scored Fournler anyhow. McCarren's blow knocked out Morrl-jnn and brought in Jim Baghy, off whom Tom Griffith lifted a homer Into 5be rlplit field bleachers In the seventh. j: The Superhns scored a run off Morrison In the second on a pass to jFnuniler and singles by High and Taylor. They scored a hltless run In the tilnth off George Hoehler, a rookie from Tulsa, Okla. Bailey walked and Jtole. Johnston walked, Griffith sacrificed and Wheat walked. Fournler's ?MrrinVe fly scored Bailey, J Blgbee bent out a bunt in the fourth for Pittsburg, took second on Taylor's wild throw due to fulling over Grimes, and scored on Traynor's 'dngle. Carey extruded a pass from Grimes In the seventh. He scored on jElgbee's single and Traynor's force of Blgbee. Bighee singled with two out ;in the ninth, according to the official scorer, but we saw It as a fumble by Johnston. Be that ns It may, Blgbee was allowed to take third unmolested iHd si orpd on Red Russell's single. Russell took third on Traynor's third Jslnirie; both were left when Johnston made a snappy stop and threw out j Grimm. Southpaw Frank Henm, who blanked the Giants, would havi 5-, pitched ttQainst the Rgp-cs in Brooklyn on Sunday, but had a tore shoulder.

The blow Is Kashio, Last Year's Victor, Eliminated byRosenbaum In Boro Tennis Tourney By FRANK T. ANDERSON. Fine weather yesterday permitted the contlnuatir.n of play in the Brooklyn Championship being held this week en the 23 clay courts of the Terraee-h'Inga Association. All the matches which were Interrupted by the downpour of rain on Sunday were completed as well as other third, fourth and fifth round matches scheduled for yesterday. Only 24 players now remain from the original 172 competitors. There were two decided upsets during yesterday's play. Selichiro Kashio, last vcar's Brooklyn champion, who has only recently become a member of the Terrace Club, was one of the victims. Dr. William Rosenbaum being his conqueror by the score of 3-6, 6-1, 6-3. The other seeded player besides Kashio to meet def,.a! was Philip Bodkin, of the Haricm Club. Roy Richoy, the energetic chairman of the Tournament Committee, caused this second upset, beating Bodkin, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4. Five Seeded Players Left. Only five of the original eight seeded, players now remain in the draw. Ken Fisher having been eliminated in the first round la3t Saturday by Cecil Donaldson. These five are Howard Voshell. H.' h. Bowman, Jerome Lang, Fred C. Anderson and myself. Voshell happens to be located in the top half, the four others in the lower. With the elimination of Kashio, it looks as though Voshell should be one of the finalists. unleSE another unforeseen upset occurs. Nothing should be taken for granted in tennis tournaments. One never knows what the outcome of the day will bring forth. Junior stars are being uncovered and the veterans of the game are coming back to their form of olden days. 8ueh occurrences as these furnish interest to the tournaments. The Brooklyn Championship Is furnishing its share of interest In this respect. Dr. RonMihrura. in continuing his match with Kashio from the point where they hid hien forced to cease play on Sunday with one set in his fa"or at 6-3. began by using a chop stroke, figuring that ny no possibility could h outdrive the crafty Jap anese. ThfS'j tactics proved unsuc cessful, as Ilosenbaum's chops were dropping short ana no length whatever. Keshlo won this set, the second of !he match, 6-1, and then went. Into a lead of 3-1 In games on the third and deciding set. Takes Five In a Row. There was a sudden noticeable change In the play of the doctor at this point. Hitting out with reck less abandon, taking chance after chance, driving deep to the comers of the court, forgetting entirely his former chop, he reeled off five straight games for the set and match. Rosenbaum is playing better tennis this var than he has for some time. He seems to be In fine physical condition and able to with stand a long drawn-out match. After ben. Ing Kashio, he took on Jack Klein, winning handily, 6-0, 6-1. Roy Rickey, veteran of many a campaign on the courts, took sufficient tlm from his arduous duties of manaiiinr the tournament to register a well-earned victory over Olson Drops Dead In Wrestling Bout Panama, June 6 Ole Olson, who won the lightweight wrestling championship for America' In tht Olympic games of 1024 at Antwerp, wrestled for five minutes with L. I). King last evening and then dropped to the mat unconscious, lie died 20 minutes later in Ancon Hospital. The cause of death has not been determined. Olson was a private In the 11th Engineers corps. King Is nlso in the military service. BOl'T STOPI'hl); NO MILLING. Detroit, Mich., June n The scheduled ten - round match between Jack McAnllffe, Detroit, nnd Martin O'Grudy, California heavyweight, was stopped In the fifth round lust nigh' by Charles P. Tampan. Hoxlng Commissioner, because of Indifferent fighting by the men. MeAuHffe ho the better of what little fighting there was- a right lo the heart, and was described In the fight by rounds In Sunday's Eagle. In the third round "Criqui countered with a solid right to the body. It was a hard smash and Johnny's smile faded for the first time. Crlqul's eyes glittered as ho Eodkln. It had been practicaliv conceded "hat Bodkin, one of the select seeded entries, would come through to the next round. Veteran Rlchey Scores Vpset, However, Hoy created a distinct t pset over the advance ideas of the critics. Glimpses of hi3 old-time term were flashed as he out-maneuvered Rodkln time and again. Klchey d,.s rves great credit for his timely win, erpectally when It is considered that conducting a tourna- 1 ....... . - wviiiiLu,a ta iiu i easy task. Reggie Talmase. one of the' vouns Brooklyn "comers," ran into "Spike" Von Bernuth, who has been playing tournament tennis around thes., parts for many years. Von Bernuth won, 6-2, 7-5, experience overcoming youth. Th Image is a Junior who should b" watched in the next tew years, however. Cecil Donaldson of the home club lost his postponed match to J. W. Feibleman, formerly of the Harvard team, losing the third set, 4-4. Feibleman led 2-1 at the beginning of yesterday's play, this being one of tne matches postponed from Sunday because of rain. Voshell Entcis Fifth Round. S. Howard Voshell, the highest ranking player in the tournamunt won his fourth round match from C. H. Nannes, 6-4, 5-4. N'annes is New York youngster who is im proving steadily In his game. He lacks experience in tournament com petition vvnicn ne is gradually re ceiving. In the first set of this match, the games went to 4-all, both players winning their services. Voshell then broke through and won his own for the set, 6-4. The second was a repetition of the first. The former Brook- lynite was not extending himself et any time during either set, being content to hold his service, relying mainly on the errors of Nannes o win games. There was only one break Ifl each set, Howard not losing a game with his highly effective sharp-breaking serve. The feature matches scheduled for today are Lang versus Abels, Bllt-chik versus F'red C. Anderson and Von Bernuth versus Bruneau. Summaries: Third Rminil, J. T. Allen W.aiert H. nrsr hv iWAult; .1.

In the sixth and last round the finish was thus described: "Johnny backed away under the onslaught, but by Derby Bets Breaking All Track Records (By Cable to The Brooklyn Eagle and Phila. Ledger; Copyright, 1921.) London, June S Unprecedented betting on the Derby to be run on Wednesday has called forth protests from many persons, who see In such widespread gambling a menace to the welfare of the public at large. It has been assumed that the sweepstake particlpanta were much more numerous this year than heretofore, and hence the early protests, but an announcement today of the vslue of the prizes in . many of the races is staggering. The greater part of the British public was deprived this year of participation in the ..famous Calcutta svveepstckes because of the restrictions placed around the sale of tickets. That resulted in many others being organized. Probably the-largest was that of the Otley Conservative Club of Liverpool, which received nearly $400,000. Every trading exchange hfd its own sweepstakes, with receipts larger than they ever dreamed of, while scores were organized for the benefit of hospitals. In these an Investment of $1.25 gave the investor a chance to win anything from $15 to $20,001'. Nearly every Government office hed Its own sweepstakes, as did nearly every private office or shop where several persons were employed. It would seem that the reformers charges that England has gone sweepstakes-msd is borne out by ob servation wherever one turns. . LITTLE .LESSONS.

Must Shoot 'Em Straight to Win British Open at Troon IN the opinion of one expert, whose experience ought to qualify him strongly to express an opinion, if Walter Hagen, Jim Barnes, Gent araen or any of the other American entries, is to win the British open golf championship this year, starting June 11, over the links of Troon. Scotland, accuracy in placing shots prominently in the repertoire of the new champion. Willie Fernie, who has for 35 years been the professional at the Troon Links, is authority for this prophecy. of June 2, Fernie sums up his opinion "The very first demand . of tho. Troon course is accuracy and this quality is not merely confined to keeping a straight line down the fairway. Much more than that is require,!, it is ess.-nllal to decide on the best line to the hole, at some holes that may mean placing the drive toward the extreme right of the fairway, while at other3 well over toward the left. Bad Drives Iiuilshed. "The player who is going to have a rearonabie chance of success must be continually asking himself the question, 'Where shall I place this shot In order to be In the most fav. orable posi'lon for my next?' The punishment for a badly placed shot may not necessarily involve playtng out of a bunker, hut assuredly the second rhot from any badly placed drive will be an extremely difficult one. "I cannot emphasize too strongly the Importance of accurate placing. It is the main feature in playing the Course. Personally I do not consider that the 'Old Course' Troon will be the long driver's paradise. At a few of the holes an accurate long hltt'r might occasionally have in advantage, but on the other hand I can quote Instances of where a very long shot would be a disadvantage. By this I do not mean that Troori is a short course, from championship tees It will measure over 6.400 yards, which distance is about 200 yards shorter than Sandwich. The latter course is generally admitted to favor long driving. Iron Play Essential. "Most surely the hall mark of 'Open Champion' will rest with one who has the mastery of his Iron clubs. 'Old Troon' provides scope for some fine approach play. I have attempted to work out what types of approach will be required, and I GRIST FROM THE BOX SCORES The Brooklyn Superbas, continuing their marvellous pace, are tied for second place with Pittsburg today as result of their victory over the Priates yesterday, 6 to 3. The Brook lyn aggregation drew a half game nearer the league leading Oiants as the latter team was Idle. The Superbas, apparently, are making their own opportunities, for Pittsburg now it counted the strongest team in th West. The Philadelphia Athletics, back for a prolonged ytay on their own grounds, will hold a reception for the Western teams they found easy, and by maintaining their present pace should accumulate points. The Yanks, too. will he receiving West, orn visitors, but the Yanks are in low spirits for the time being, losing yes terday to Washington, 6 to 2, the third Htrniglit defeat. Of the two enation teams of the majors Brooklyn s going better. It was the fury of Its attack that won over the Pirite.1 yesterday, for the Pirates had been fairly successful on the road. The Robins wero out hit, but their blows were Ravage and timely when I hey meant something. Both Mnnager Connie Mack and Manager Wilbert Roblnron are trying to gather strength. Robinson and Owner Kbbets are dickering with both Boston and Pittsburg for a trade by which Pitcher "Dutch" Ruether would be their n aln stock. Ruether's work bns been unsatisfactory to Brooklyn, and It Is understood he do-Ires a ehanje. Mack hits taken on two more college pitchers, .Southpaw Beard and Brire, a righthander, from Krsklne College. Both Mack and Robinson have had good results from pitching recruits this year, and all In all It has rot been n poor yeur for Inexperienced nioundsmen. The latest to come through Is Paul Zahnlser, who handled himself cleverly against Joe Hush yesterday, letting the Yanks hit, but not when ll was too significant. Up to the eighth he yielded only five nits .and no runs. He showed no finr of Bribe Ruth, so Rahe collected three hits. "Cy" Williams, leading home. run hitler of the season, gave the fans who atand by the Philadelphia Jockey Hayes, Victim of Heart Disease, Earns Goal But the Effort Kills Him By W. C. VREELAND. THE Grim Reaper paid a sensational visit to the Belmont Park track yesterday. Swiftly the life of Jockey Frank Hayes, rider of Sweet Kiss in the steeplechase, was cut short. Hayes had just landed Sweet Kiss the winner by a length and a half and was pulling up his, mount about 100 yards after the finish when he swayed In the saddle and pitched head", long to the turf. When picked up by attendants he was detid, a victim of heart trouble. It was the first winning mount for Hayes and the last. He had only been riding horses In steeplechases a short time. It was his second mount In a cross-country race. He was in the employ of James K. L. Frayllng, a trainer, and had been schooling and galloping steeplechase horses for hlw for the past four year. He rode his first race at Havre de Grace this spring. Loyalty to his employer and zeal to ride Sweet Kiss in a race unquestionably had much to do with the sudden death of Hayes. Sweet Kiss, which ran in the name of Miss A. M. Frayllng, was assigned to carry 130 pounds In the jumping race, which was second weight, It was reported that he had to out on the road Sunday and yesterday enveloped in sweaters in order to reduce to the proper poundage. The heat not only affected his heart but served to make him weak. Parade of Admirers As Gibbons Departs St. Paul, Minn.. June 6 After delaying hla departure for a day because his friends and admirers have wished to give him a good send-off, Tommy Gibbons, St. Paul heavyweight title seeker, left here today for Shelby. Montana, to begin train-Ing for his Fourth of July bout with Jack Dempsey, world's heavyweight champion. Today's plans Include a parade through the downtown district to the Great Northern depot. Gibbons, acompanied by his wife and three children, is expected to reacli Shelby Wednesday night and to begin training the next day. WAIVERS ON MITCHELL. Philadelphia, June 5 Announcement was made today that the Phila-delphla National League Baseball Club had asked waivers on Clarence Mitchell, veteran southpaw pitcher. together with fine iron play, will figure In an article in The American Golfer In the following manner: have Included the tee shots at the short holes in this category. "There are six approach shots with the maahie. where pitch and top will be the best play, and I think will be better than to pitch and run, because many of the greens, even if not bunkered in front, have ridges or undulations which would make this latter type of shot difficult to judge, and might easily kick the ball to right or left. While on the question of approaching, almost all the greens are very well guarded anJ many of them have little pot bunkers behind. The possibility of a pitch overrunning the green and being trapped in these bunkers will be obviated If the player has considered the accurate placing of his previous shot. FlncsfC Xot Force. "Then there are two holee where the shot to the green will require a driving Iron. At three holes an ordinary Iron will suffice while at another the player should take a cleek. At no less than six holea the approach shot la Just over a mashle and calls for a particularly well Judged half-Iron shot. I cannot stresa the importance of this shot too much. Too frequently In these days I see the younger generation going for the ball 'full bang' with a lofted club. "In my opinion the Open Champion 1928 will require to have complete control with his mid-iron, and he must be able, to accurately estimate his distances. The half iron shot is very important and I am looking forward with Interest to see how the American Champion, Gene Sarazen, whom I have not yet met, tackles this particular type of shot, because I feel that on this point will depend whether ho will be likely to continue his victorious career by winning at Troon."

Tims of game lifts, Quakers a thrill by walloping his 10th homer of the season, which was Instrumental In the Quakers' to 7 victory over Boston.

The Cincinnati Reds continued to lose opportunities by os n to Chi cago, I to 7, In the ninth Inning after they had the game won. Last week the Reds began to make headway but they couldn't sustain their spurt. on the card. In order to make that reduce from 10 to 15 pounds. He went Then, too, Hayes rode Sweet Kiss vigorously after challenging Gimme, the favorite and pacemaker, at th.e top of the stretch. Sweet Kiss cleared the last fence In front, but Gimme made such a strong challenge at tho finish that Hayes had to ride desperately to keep in front. This undue exertion in hlo weakened condition brought on a sudden at-tack of heart disease. Dr. John A. Voorhees, the tiack physiclirt, who examined Hayes Immediately after he fell, said that his death was Instantaneous. Hayes lived with his mother and sister in the downtown section of this boro. He was 35 years old. ' Bud Lerncr Preparing for Stakes. Bud Lerner, the early sprinc Ju-venlle champion of 1922, made hid first appearance of ,he season In tho Bayslde Handicap and made it a memorable one bv carrying 1J4 pounds, top weight, to victory. Ha conceded 13 pounds tj Daniel and won by half a length. Little Celt also made his first public bow in this race, and, after showing a great deal of speed, finished third. Bud Lerner raced with Little Celt during the early Etages .in 1 ran the latter legweary. Daniel was u keen contender and raced at tho hips of Bud Lerner to the turn for home At that point Bud Lerner drew out and looked an easy winner. But lack of physical condition began to fell on him at the finish, and he had to be ridden out to beat Daniel. Tho showing made by Bud Leaner under his heavy weight was An Impressive one. The track was heavy from the recent storm, but h spite of the bad footing the cobby son of The Finn-Dreamsome stepped the mile course in 1:38 an exceedingly good performance. After the race many trainers thought that fhey saw in Bud Lerner a strong helpmeet for his stable companion, Zev, In the stake events of the future. Lerner has so far escaped penalties for winning this year, whereas Zev, for his victories in the Kentucky Derby and the Withers Stakes will be piled high with weights in all stake events that call for penalties. The showing made by Celt wat good, all -things considered. ' ' Of course, he only raced well for nbbut five and a half furlongs, but thW race will do him a great deal qf good physically. He Is a colt thai needs one or two races to snarpej. him up. When Sandy McNaughtou gets ready to turn him loose it C scarcely likely that H. Kuminer, who rode him yesterday, will have the leg up on him. Earl Sande, in addition to win- nlng on Bud Lerner, put over Hyperion In the last race. Sande was In no hurry with the son of Sun-star during the early stages, and moved up gradually from fourth place. At the head of the stretch Hyperion had caugnt ana passea Purity, and from that point on It was merely a canter for Bud Ftsh-er's colt to win. Purity lasted longf enough to beat Spread Eagle a head for second money. Backers of Favorites Start Well. Backers of favorites started off well in their struggle to pick winners. They selected ex-Shortff Steve Pettlfs Exalted Ruler to capture the first race, and backed her down to 2 to 1 at post time. Thii good looking filly by Supernun-Croix Rouge showed plenty of early foot and took the lead and held It to the last 100 yards, where she began to atop. Marinelll had all of his work eut out for. him to heat Cave Woman, Postillion and Watch Out, which finished in the order named, necks apart. The loose soil and uncertain foot ing was sellshed by Overtake, and that big, ungainly gelding carried 117 pounds aa though it were a feather and won the third race, distance one mile, in a gallop by two lengths. He was at the very lucra tive odds of 20 to 1. It was a good betting race between Moonraker arid Forest Lore, and tney went to tne post first and second choices, respectively. But when it came to racing, Overtake had his horses fairly an chored. Moonraker showed tho way for five furlongs, with Coeur de Lion second. The latter took command turning for home, but had scarcely showed in front when he stopped. Then Overtake, which had beenYun-ning fourth under a pull, moveel up with a rush on the outside. He opened a gap of four lengths and was pulled down to a canter at tne finish. Forest Lore in a drive beat Moonraker for the place honors. Nine fillies and mares sported silks In the fifth race. Because of the nature of the track, Sequel, the gray filly by Book, was made the favor-Ite. She has always shown a preference for a wet track. Callahan got her off well, and, slipping to the front, showed the way to the finish, winning by three lengths from Lady Rose, which was second throughout, Valentia was third. The attendance showed no falling off, and was the largest Blue Monday crowd of the racing season. Ridge Club to Conduct Kings Co.
