LONG SHOTS AT HARLEM Californians were delighted with Chicago weather yesterday and said it reminded them of the winter atmosphere at home The sky was cloudless the air cool and bracing The large crowd at Harlem was attracted by the probability of a fast track and in this particu paretic ¬ lar lair was not disappointed Reversals of form were to be looked for as the animals that have not raced during the wet spell are naturally short of work while buchhorses bughouses as have tackled the heavy going are apt to be muscle sore Anyone could see that an outsider might defeat the favorite under such conditions and the assurance of a good general play prompted Eighteen regular and two field bookmakers cut in for two days Of the fiftyfive fifty entries for the six races only two were sratchecl satchel sratcheclOverland Overland on the strength of his close race with Double Dummy a few days since was always a good second choice to Star and Cres Acres ¬ cent made the favorite in the first race be ¬ cause of a private trial and also tha than fact of his having Skeets Skeet Martin on his back Outside Jr this pair Alvas Alva Pet received the strongest backing although considerable money went on Troil Roil the steeplechaser Another jumper es ¬ sayed spayed the flat in Michael G but neither of the leppers lepers were prominent in the race To a good start Overland took command attended by John Sack but Alvas Alva Pet and Revenge Dare quickly passed the first two named Nearly onehalf Neal mile from home Star and Crescent gained the lead and galloping from this on he won the race as he pleased Overland had been ridden close to the inside fence around tbe tube upper turn and in the heavy going dropped well back only to come on in the home stretch and in a hard drive just nip out Friskal Frisk for the place If Colonel Clarks suspicions of Van camp are taken into consideration there is a possibility that this jockey only cared to win the place with Overland upon which horse one bet of 300 for that position was recorded There was an owner once at Garfield Park whose horse ran second or third in maiden races seventeen times in succession Revenge Dare finished ahead of the bunch behind Friskal Frisk FriskalPat Frisk Pat Dunne furnished in Prince Harry the even money favorite for the second race but the best Skeets Skeet Martin could do with the colt was to get him home in fifth position many lengths behind the leaders W Martin who rode the colt several months ago said that he was a most difficult one to keep going The winner turned up in Iris who having plenty of speed was waited with by Rutter Ruttier and through the home stretch easily beat Good Hope who lead the party at the turn for home attended by the favorite She was also passed close in by Stamina Martha Fox was a fair fourth Mazie Maze V showed to have the foot of the others the first sixteenth sixteenthPlantain sixteenth Plantain was indulged with the lead to the middle of the upper turn in the third race where Fervor always second up to this point headed Bradleys Bradley horse Candelaria Candelabra and What er Lou had stayed within two lengths of the l lclers callers clers clears and once in the straight they came on passing the others quickly Candelaria Candelabra began to hustle at the last eighth and under whip and spur got to What er Lous Louis head but try as he would Lester Reiff Riff could get no further and the favorite hard held won by a neck As Beauchamp Beach rode on the outside around the turn his horse most likely had plenty left Again did the countrymen profit by playing at 8 to 5 on a horse to show in a four horse race as Plantain beat the tired Fervor out of third won the best batting race of the day and proved to be a windfall for the book ¬ makers as he was the longest priced horse Some money went on the winner because of his third to Genna Henna and Falomacita Valencia September 25 a race wherein Arthurs Arthur colt got a bad start Yesterday he had a lot of speed and spoiled several starts by breaking away Then when Dwyer was about to drop his flag Tulla Tulle Fonso Fonts wheeled and spoiled all Again did Andes break up a start by his anxiety to lead the others And finally when the flag fell not to be denied he quickly gained a lead of two lengths over Tulla Tulle Fonso Fonts Judge Tarvin Arvin was off last and that is where he finished in com ¬ pany panky with Boney Bony Boy landing lengths behind Tulla Tulle Fonso Fonts which filly got third money Genna Henna had beaten her threeeighths from home but Schreibers Schreiber filly could never catch the flying leader Andes winning off by several lengths lengthsTo lengths To a good start Organ Pilot carrying whole bunches of smart money ran to the front and opened a big gap to the half mile ground on all save Inuendo Innuendo who hung to him so that on the far turn the pair looked 10 bo one horse Here Uarda Guardia third for the preceding quarter gained rapidly and passing the leaders as the last bend was made came on strongly and although chal chalk ¬ lenged longed by Button on the end won easily The second horse got away well but T Murphy who was aboard him took matters easily and rode in the rear around the first turn Tranby Tabby off in the front rank dropped back in going the first half but came on in the home stretch and beat Pinar Pindaric del Rio who also had started well only to be outrun i iOne One One had thought to see the flurry about Judge Steadman Seaman that he couldnt couldn't lose The bookies flirting with their patrons at first posted 15 to 1 and rubbed clear down to 11 to 5 before they took any money The horse finished fifth and was never dangerous Another good thing presumbably presumably was Jack of Hearts backed from 100 down to 30 to 1 He ran three eighths and sat down Lucid led up the backstretch until Necedah Necked came on and stopping her raced away in front with Bethlehem Star The pair led to the last hundred yards whera where Double Dummy and Croesus Cress came along and ran first and second respectively Bethlehem Star finish ¬ ing King third and Necedah Necked fourth On this race the bookmakers skinned the lamb paid off in five minutes and all took the first train for Chicago ChicagoJockey Chicago Jockey Rose has been denied the privilege of attending the Harlem races until such time as his suspension is removed Beyond a doubt he is an incorrigible negro lad and withal a dan ¬ gerous ferrous one oneTraverser contravener Traverser Traverse since his let up has taken on seventyfive seventy pounds of flesh He is galloping and will be raced inside of ten days
