HEAYY PLUNGE ON J. C. CORE GARRY HERMANN GELDING LANDS THE ATLANTIC STAKES AFTER EXCITING RACE. James R. Keeno Shows Up Another Likely Youngster in Suffrage, the Medium of a Coup Big Crowd at Brighton Beach. New York, July 1C. There were nt least 13,000 people at Brighton Beach-today, notwithstanding the fact that It wan Holiday and the card was mediocre in the quality of its offerings. The Atlantic Stakes, a two-year-old selling affair at live and a half furlongs, was the feature of the card. On paper it promised little, but the actual race proved uxcltlng. J. C. Core, ridden by Sillier, was the heavily backed favorite and finally won out after one of the most desperate efforts to get up that has been seen hereabouts in years. Maiden jockeys disported themselves in the opening race, at a mile and a sixteenth, under selling conditions. Starter Dade took his time arranging an equable start. The fastidiousness of the starter in that respect in an affair of this kind proved highly amusing to the spectators. Devoting infinitely more time and attention to this motley band of "novices than lie did to the field In the Brighton Handicap, the starter was rewarded with one of the very worst starts ever seen anywhere. Yorkshire Lad proved the best and brought Englander his first brackets. Barney Schreibers Earl Rogers should have been In the money. Kassil. at 8 to 5, received about all the hacking that was forthcoming for the steeplechase and he never gave his following a moments doubt. The swaddled Yama Christy finished a late second. Withdrawals marred the mile and a sixteenth, handicap. Agile, for the first time this season, raced in winning form and met an unlucky defeat at the heels of Garnish. Orly, a slow beginner, had not much chance to show what he Is capable of. In Suffrage, thi winner and medium of a big coup in the last race for three-year-old maidens, J. It. Keene uncovered an uncommonly good looking rlllv. by Voter out of Qucenston. Jofkej-Ji. ixrhran was Jialled before the stewards utter dismounting from Arlmo in" the" third race. He cut sharply across In front of the others at the start rind put the heavily backed favorite Arcite, as well as Tourenue, out of commission. Those who saw it expected to hear of his speedy fine and suspension, but it seems that the stewards. gave him the benefit of the doubt and let him oft on hearing his explanation, which was to the effect that he had found it impossible to prevent George S. Davis from darting over to the rail. The horse is known to be erratic and that saved the jockey and his backers. The .Metropolitan ring layers at Brighton were called i:pou today to make the heaviest settlements of the present season. The westerners have been fortunate of late, even the humblest of thtm seem to have money in plenty. Flip Flap was cut down in the Brighton Handicap, wliieh accounts for the elimination of this game filly as a factor in the last heartbreaking quarter,, where she was expected to shine. The Paget pair, Hamburg Belle and Cairngorm, lioth received cuts on their hind legs, which will put them temporarily out of commission. Lucien Lyne, in speaking of Hamburg Belles race, said: "She wanted to go along the first part of the race and I did not. In the last part, when I wanted to go along, she did not."
