TIPPING WINS SEA BREEZE. IMPEDES RYE, THE FAVORITE, BUT NO CLAIM OF FOUL IS MADE. Miller Is Warned by the Stewards as to His, Riding: Garner Rides Three Winners Little Chance for Match Race. New lotk, September ,2S. One of the slimmest crowds of the season saw the racing at Gravesend today under ideal conditions. In the solitary stake fixture, the Sea Breeze, selling, at a mile, and a sixteenth, the inconsistent three-year-old filly Tipping, owned by J. II. McAvoy, at odds of 40 to 1, upset what was considered a "moral certainty." The celebrated little Bowery liorse Rye, was backed for a fortune at odds-on. Tipping, ridden by Garner, joined issue in the stretch, and swerving over to the inside carried the favorite with her and, by forcing him to repeatedly pull up In the final struggle, encompassed his ultimate defeat. Rye was even beaten out for second place by Wes and Millers failure to lodge a complaint against the winner evoked onsiderable surprise from the spectators. Garner is fast recovering his good spring form and Is beginning to displace Miller In the affections of the variable racegoing public. The racing was marred by bad starting. Several races were decided by the start alone. Halifax was practically left at the past in the first, otherwise he could hardly have lost. Royal Breeze in the Tsecond and Onatas and John Lylein the last might have altered the complexion of the finish of their respective races had they, received. favorable send-offs. That RrenVnmre so-called special or match race this season is considered improbable That is unless the owners of the champion are willing to make big weight concessions over a full six furlongs tourse in order to secure a match and decide the sprinting championship for good and all. Lady Amelia was the undisputed queen of the Gravesend course only. It lias . developed that the reason Accountant did not start In the Hindoo Stakes against Ironsides on Wednesday was due to the fact that Bradys great three-year-old was suffering .from muscular contraction and some mild internal trouble. It was at, Br. Sheppards suggestion that Accountant was withdrawn. For failure to obey the starters orders to school True Wing at the barrier, Thomas H. Ryan, the owner, was yesterday fined 0 by the stewards. It is said that jockey Miller has been severely cautioned by the stewards to be more careful in his riding or suffer a possible revocation of his license; for the remainder of the season.
