HAWTHORNE RACING An Octoberlike October day with high flying clouds and a strong wind confronted the large Satur Saturn ¬ day crowd at Hawthorne where was provided a card of seven races There were engaged horses of such quality that the sport could not fail to delight the more especially as there was an absence of the old familiar race for maidens as also that for cheap twoyearolds toeholds and again the fields were not unwieldy The pleasure seeker has ducked the parks for good and his para ¬ site the vendor of crackerjack no longer cuts a Z in the bank rolls of doting papas There ¬ fore is increased the Saturday attendance at racetracks and yesterday might be eeen citi cit ¬ zens zen backing the horses who for months hitherto have been engrossed in halfholiday play with wives and babies The track was at its best bestFor bettor For the star event of tbe tube day the Hawthorne Stakes six furlongs for twoyearolds toeholds penalties and allowances worth 1195 tothe tote winner 200 to second and 100 to third there came to the post only one youngster carrying weight for age ie Sea Lion Jinksby Jinks the conditions of the race had eight pounds off and coupled with her stable companion Survivor was made a 6 to 5 favorite Jolly Eoger Eager and Sea Lion opening at 3 to 1 each The scratching of Miss Marion removed a dangerous factor but the loss of Stamina was more than offset by the added starter Formero Former as there is always a chance for such a high class colt to regain his best form The craze for putting little BeifT BefiT on all kinds of horses may tome day result in a serious acci acc ¬ dent Formero Former ran off with him when on his way to the post but the game midget stopped the rank colt who for the first time lately ran in blinkers Then Formero Former ran through and broke the barrier The race was a farce Thorpe on Jinks beat the gate and at once sailed away with a commanding lead which could have been made still greater at any time as the filly had the speed of the party Jinks won away off Formero Former off second landed in the place by many lengths Survivor third had a race for a time with Jolly Eoger Eager Fon Fong tainebleu stainable was left standing still at the post and First Tenor might as well have been An outsider fresh to the sight of the race as Jinks was making the last turn would have said There is a lot of horses working with the colors up and never have dreamed that a stake race was being run The nineteen regular and two field book ¬ makers were made happy when Alleviate demonstrating that all ideas of weight are at times knocked silly by class crossed the wire the winner of the first race Dave Waldo Weald had been hopped on as a good thing regardless of the fact that a Vancamp Vance was up Poor horse that is ever ridden by a Van this or that and is so rendered as nervous as the Roman in fear of the Barbarian Abe Furst Furs was the bookmakers favorite while those knowing Dave Waldos Wealds quitting abilities took the chance of Montgomery splitting the pair There was no one to back Alleviate she at the worst of weights save the piker of good memory who remem Bremen ¬ bered bared her as a great twoyearold toehold To a splendid start Alleviate in the rear Dave Waldo Weald made play and set a merry pace Mont ¬ gomery geometry and Abe Furst Furs being close up when the last bend was rounded Here Alleviate only two lengths away was said by astute horse ¬ men to bo dangerous Sydney Pagets Pages Euskin Ruskin was not near enough to behit befit with a Fqurrel Quarrel rifle Clear into the last sixteenth the order was the same and here Dave Waldo Weald seemed run ¬ ning Ming well within himself but an instant later his jockey reached for his bat and before he raised it Abe Fprst Prost was at the favorites saddle Three jumps more and the lead was Abe Fursts Firsts but when within thirty yards of the wire the trio of leaders were digging post holes so that Alleviate with even stride passed on and won the race handily Abe Furst Furs was second and Dave Waldo Weald third The scratching of Imp and Monk Wayman Cayman was deplored yet it is con ¬ jectural pectoral whether or not their absence did any harm Colonel W E Applegate Appellate had a compli complain ¬ mentary monetary bet on Alleviate AlleviateEmpress Alleviate Empress Josephine acted viciously at the post before the first rece race and being on the in ¬ side got off none too well Cyril and Inuendo Innuendo ran first and second to the betting ring where the latter went on and won easily from Em ¬ press Josephine who was third at the head of the home stretch and never worse than fourth Cyril finished third and Mistletou Mistletoe who was running strongly on the end fourth Lucid was third for fiveeighths firefights then dropped back land ¬ ing King absolutely absolutelyThe absolutely The dash of one and onehalf Neal miles produced spirited betting Treachery opened the favor ¬ ite bite at 7 to 5 was supplanted by Hosi Hoi but eventually the price 9 to 5 take your pick obtained The Wagner boys played their horse Croesus Cress high and low while Virginia Bradleys Bradley friends bet heavily on Plantain Oelian Olin the outsider made the pace for the first half Ho3i and Plantain being next all others close up except Valid already out of it Treachery who had left the post in the second division began to move to the leaders as the starting point was neared and as here Plantain began to weaken it may be that Slack in trying to place his mount choked down his horse Hosi Hoi and Croesus Cress were all that were left for Galen Browns mare to heat She soon went to the front and into the homestretch led by several lengths Here Hosi Hoi got away from Croesus Cress and coming on at the betting ring was EO close to Treachery upon which JEeiff had been loaf ¬ ing King that the whip was necessary to stir her up but a few mid welts and Treachery ran home a comfortable distance to the good Croesus Cress was a fair third the others pulled up or beaten off offThe often The steeplechase proved that Ed Corrigan can still win jumping races for which style of sport he has ever evinced so marked a predilic redial tion ion Jezebel was the easiest of winners after lying off until the last half mile She was well ridden by Ellison Michael G in taking the water jump the five horses being bunched was crowded against the right wing The clat cleat ¬ ter tear of his hoof against the boards was ominous of a serious accident but although horse and rider fell in a heap both at once regained their feet J Burns who rode Michael G lost his stirrup in the jerk which his horse gave in leav leave ¬ ing King the post and this probably caused the fall not one of the starters but that at some stage flattered his backers unless it was Troil Roil who failed to run up to expectations Uncle Jim took the first fence in the lead but Nobilis Mobiles went on and led over the next six obstacles where he retired and Uncle Jim resumed command Here Jezebel was fourth about four lengths behind Uncle Jim but Corrigans Corrigan colors and Tom Hums were mixed over the second last jump and from this on the race belonged to the Master of Hawthorne Jezebel winning with her head swinging from Nobilis Mobiles who handily beat Uncle Jim JimTo Into To a somewhat straggling siart shirt Aunt Mary broke quickest in the sixth rarf rarefy attended by Little Alarm and the pair raced right away from the others The long shot led to the last hundred yards when J Eeiff Eiffel for whom it had been a gala day sent Little Alarm on and won the race cleverly from Lady Callahan she beat ¬ ing King Aunt Mary two lengths Sardonic was just behind the third horse It begins to look as if jockeys like Bobby Hothersall Others and J Eeiff Eiffel were fancied by horses because of their light hands Animals get tired of being geehawed heehawed about aboutHer bother Her Favor is the unluckiest thing on four legs in and around Chicago She alone of the horses in the the last race stood quietly at the post and then when the others got tired of dancing and lined up she was turning side ¬ ways and jostled and thrown back When Friar John and Afamada Alameda led around the first turn J Eeiff Eiffel had got Her Favor straight ¬ ened denned up but she was lengths back of all the horses and not until the half had been passed did she catch the last of the bunch Now showing wonderful speed she ran around the others and struck into the straight on even terms with Afamada Alameda Coming on gamely she led 150 yards out but here Thorpe on the favorite hooked up with the wee Eeiff Eiffel and of course outriding outbidding him to the wire ia a drive Friar John was first by a neck Afamada Alameda was a fair third and Molo Moo was fairly close The race was always amongst the first three horses It was almost dark when at 610 the last race was finished finishedSpirituelle finished Spirituelle Spiritual is in a race Monday with twelve pounds off although this crack filly of T C McDowells McDowell has started twelve times winning eight and being second the other four The conditions call for allowances for horses not having won a race since a certain date It is thus that a race track program maker is oc ¬ casionally classically tripped up
