HAKLKM HAL RACING RACINGJohn Racing John Condon Condom was at Harlem yesterday look ¬ ing King as well as at any time for years He was pleased with the racing outlook and talked cheerily with the presiding judge for an hour The day was such as only Chicago can furnish and the crowd was up to the average The card was a good one and everything passed off pieas pietas autly tautly The sensation of the day was the defeat of Mary Black who ran badly It is thought lier flier marvelous race of Monday 113 pounds up may have staled her May Ws win was an astonishing one considering her long let up Enchanter was heavily played by Kid Weller Dweller and his party and came mighty near delivering the goods The track was in splendid condition conditionTo condition To a perfect start a remarkable occurrence cousiderin considering the size of the field Willie Howard showed in front for the first race but at once dropped back and never worse than fourth fin ¬ ished dished sixth The lead was taken by Arthur McKnight Mocking and he led to the last sixteenth from Mazie Maze V and Lucille Bramble she finished frhffth and having them beaten looked all over a winner when on the rail came through Red Pirate and quickly passed on only to be driven out by Shinfane Shinbone who getting off near the rear ran au excellent race Arthur McKnight Mocking close Up finished ibird ibid and the next three Mazie Maze V fourth were well toward the goal goalThe Goethe The second race was a good betting one Oleska Coleslaw being made the favorite at 24 to 1 on the strength of a fine performance in good company at her previous start in Chicago Streamer J II Murphys Murphy Topgallant colt was heavily backed at the post the 4 to 1 posted on some slates being not for sale Streamer was away absolutely last although moving and Mona dour Pat Dunnes Dunes colt fared little better Falomacita Valencia ran right off from the others barr ¬ ing King two it was a good start but was collared by Antiquary at the last eighth Iris had been third and Harry Nutter Mutter fourth nearly all the way Now Falomacita Valencia stopped a trifle and Antiquary got home in front being brought to the whip by Harry Nutter Mutter Falomacita Valencia third was just ahead of Iris aud Maud the back bunch was led by Revanna Ravenna who for the first time lately hereabouts aired the colors of Frank Phillips PhillipsThe Phillips The jockeys were called to the stand as the horses went to the post for the one mile and seventy yards and Colonel Clark was reported to have had the following conversation with J Reitf Refit who rode Don Quixote Did you ever ride this horse before No sir from the boy Then go on and do the best you can Pay no attention to any orders you may have and ride the race to suit yourself The betting had been heavy Dr Sheppard being particularly well supported To a perfect start Storm King was in front rounding into the backstretch Fervor and Dr Sheppard right there Charley Christy fouith fourth and Don Quixote fifth The latter worked himself alone eo that at the middle of the upper turn where Storm King laid just in front of the trio behind Don Quixote was as good as the next and was running alongside Fervor and Dr Sheppard Charley Christy was beaten but The Devillaid Defilade of it at the half an extraordinary distance for so Tree running a horse was coming up rapidly Turniug Turning for home Storm King slightly increased his lead Dr Sheppard not yet sent to a ride being second Here Fervor died so quickly that at the finish he was beaten one hundred yards Storm King was hustled along by Dr Sheppard nearing the betting ring but now on the rail came Don Quixote who had been shot into the most favorable position at the entry to the straight and finishing strongly he ran h me an easy wnner winner The Devil joined company with Storm Kng King and Dr Sheppard close in and the A straggling start found Judge Tarvin Arvin off with a bulge and two open lengths to the good while L Pillott Pilot Jr was absolutely Pearl Barnes got to and passed the leader in the first quarter and Genna Henna coming up the trio struck the home stretch many lengths ahead of the others Pearl Barnes soon bad enough and the favorite passed the threesixteenths post four lengths better than Genna Henna who made a shoot to the outside at the turn Straightening up however she was head and head with Judge Tarvin Arvin a furlong out but Everett riding with surprisingly good judgment sat still waiting for Genna Henna to die which she did and was beaten easily in a close finish Oneita Oneida ran third many lengths away and Goal Runner bringing up the rear was opposite the betting ring ringNow gringo Now came the speed race of the day Mary Black being engaged It was the first appearance here this year of May W a filly much talked of in her two and threeyearold form and as to which last spring many conflicting rumors circulated She was not even second choice in the betting Eugenia Wickes Wickets holding such honor The scratching of Timemaker Tidemark deprived the contest of considerable interest many fancying him about due May W won the race by an eyelash from Enchanter Belle of Memphis being close up The latter ran by far the best race as she was practically left at the post The crabs Ironical and Lady Fairmount Falmouth against each of which 500 to 1 was laid were beaten in the first ten strides Enchanter delayed the start by refusing to join his horses and at the breakaways Mary Black ran the farthest Enchanter broke once and then he with Belie of Mem Memo ¬ phis Aphis and Mary BlacK covered a six ¬ teenth tenth When the flag went down Enchanter led Mary Black second May W third They ran so in close order to the home stretch Eu ¬ genia genial Wickes Wickets fourth Belle of Memphis having gained much ground being within striking dis dais ¬ tance stance Mary Black stopped soon aftt aft r turning for home as did Eugenia Wickes Wickets and they fin ¬ ished dished together several lengths worse than Belle of Memphis Enchanter led until the last few strides as Rutter Ruttier on May W waited patiently for the final rush Beauchamp Beach on the other was working for dear life Just at the right moment Rutter Ruttier swung his whip and when it hit tLe tale filly said to be a roarer rarer she responded and won in the most exciting finish of the season seasonBarataria Barataria Barratries won the last race coming from the ruck truck at the head of the home stretch where the leaders swinging very wide gave Gray his chance to get through and winning in a big gallop from Don Orsino Orinoco Greyhurst Greyhounds was thiid hid after making the running all the way with Sereuaand Sergeant Organ Pilot Uarda Guardia finished close up to the third horse Idle Hour showed some tpeed peed up the back stretch Connie Lee was last away from the post and Judge Steadman Seaman had no chance chanceEugene chance Eugene Carter the billiardist billiards who is to per ¬ form in Chicago this season arrived in town yesterday His experience abroad with the horses is best told by himself Yes I saw em run They had me in what they call the Bird ¬ cage at Newmarket Newark and I wish theyd they'd kept me there For abroad as they say is of all places the spot to get the con talk that will separate a man from his money In this coun count ¬ try I used to go light on the horses but in England and France they got me to plunge There they tell you of how this or that horse is bred away back from the days of Queen Anne and who could help betting on such a pedigree it was in those days so I heard that they mixed up some Spanish blood with their stock I guess I lost my coin HARLEM RACING Continued from 1st Page on some bred that way I know they quit mighty quick and maybe it was ringer blood that did it just as some shark furnished Cervera Cerebra sawdust bombshells Maybe when billiards play out I can be a horse reporter like some other shortstops for I know all about the Godolphin Goop Arabian Eclipse Lottery Hermit and a whole lot more It was over in France however where they trimmed me good When at first I lost they told me it was because I couldnt couldn't speak French so I learned the tongue Then I got staked to more stable secrets than would do for three hundred mystery stories thats hats a good game I see maybe I could get some money at that and everyone cost me many a louis dor door Well I blew in at one thing or another some fifty thou ¬ sand dollars trying to make money and here I am home again You know me The Harlem race crowd was looking for the meanest man on earth with the purpose of hanging an individual who gave the blind pro ¬ gram boy a threecent thecae piece instead of a dime dimeBarney dismember Barney Schreiber was very sore about the Judge Tarvin Arvin start Genna Henna would certainly have won if away on even terms Nineteen regular and two field books cut in for one day daySerena dasheen Serena broke down in the last race
