ROCKFEL SCORES EASILY
(United Press Association —By ' Electric Telegraph—Copyright.) . (Received April 30, 12.30 p.m.) '_ LONDON. April 29. On°"the"'"f ou~rth~ day.7~ of ~ the" Newmarket First • Spring Meeting, the following was the result of the
ONE THOUSAND GUINEAS, a sweepstakes with 1000 guineas added; second 10 per cent, and third 5 per cent, of whole stake; for three-year-old fillies; 1 mile. Sir Hugo Cunliffe-Owen's to f Rockfel,- by Felstead—Rockliffe, by Santorb, 9;0 .......... 1 D. Crossfnan's b i Laughing "Water, by . Walter Gay—Duchess of Mars, 9.0 2 Sir Alfred Butt's br:f Solar Flower, by Solario—Serena, 9.0 .. 3 Twenty starters.1 Won by one and a half lengths, three lengths between second and third. Winner bred at the Weir Bank Stud, and trained by Captain O. M. D. Bell at Lambourn, Berkshire. ' Although there was no filly by the name of Rockfel racing among the two-year-olds in England last season, it is fairly certain from the name that the One Thousand Guineas winner is Sir Hugo Cunliffe-Owen's unnamed Rockliffe filly who won the Askham Maiden Plate, 5 furlongs, at odds-on in a field of six at York on October 7. This filly had started three times previously and had been third, beaten a head and a short head by First Oil and Oratress . respectively, in the Maiden T.Y.O. Plate, 6 furlongs, at Newmarket on September 28. She did not race again' after the York Meeting. Two-year-olds, as is generally well known, may be raced without names in England, but they must be named before beginning their three-year-old career. An older full-sister to Rockfel, assuming the filly is as indicated, started in last year's Oaks, under the name of Rockfoil, and ran last of the thirteen starters. Felstead, a son of Spion Kop and winner of the Derby in 1928 for Sir Hugo, is still owned by the baronet and he stands at the stud at 300 guineas.— ~ "Rangatira.".
