The western invasion h innk bag itself felt jit Jamaica these days. Three f to days winners writ owiicd by men who L:nl - m tiit«- l tlieir racing to the territory west of the Alloghauies until racing was shut down at Si. Louis and Chi-[■;i;i . F. A. Forsythc winning bath two -year-old races, while J. I. Mayberrys yuiun Brady ace united lor the fifth rice. It look- as if Mr. Forsythc brought a very service-slide slalde of youngsters ea-t this year and the win ning habit is getting to Ik- aitnost a daily one for hitn. Both Kitle Range and Hounding Elk were well supported at remunerative odds and the Ken-tuckians present had a profitable day. There was MM fear by those who hacked Kitle Range for the o|KMiing race that he might Ik- disqualified. Ren Cole, the favoiite. led into the stretch and faltered suddenly, Ririe Range coming up on the outside md Cuernavaca on the inside. When scarcely ■ length in front of Rifle Range Ben Cole fell, throwing Radtke between the other two. Many believed that Rifle Range had cut across Ben Coles path, causing hi:n to fall, but those in the best position lo see said that Ben Cole stumbled. No claim was made and the horses were placed as they finished. Radtke was on his feet in a instant and the three other runners were far enough hack so that he was in no danger lrom thein. but after taking a fe»v steps be staggered tinder the track rail and fell headlong to the grass. .The ambulance was summoned and he was taken to the jockeys room. Examination by Dr. Hoie established the fact that ho was not seriously hurt. He was shaken up and his ana was badly bruised. Later he was walking around the paddock, but may not lie able to ride for a day or two, as his arm will be pretty sore for a time. The feature of the sport was the Metropolitan Handicap trials of Sewell. Tanya and Blandy in the six furlongs handicap. Sewell had a little the liest of the weights and. as he was retried to have worked uncommonly fast, he was favored by the price makers. A late report on Tanya, however. forced her price down aid at post time Sewell had only a Blight call over the Whitney mare. It was Tanyas first race in more than a year, as she was not seen in public at all last year. There was ample evidence, however, that she was si rough-fancied by her connections. Indifferent handling by Keener prevented Tanya from showing at ! er best and Sewell galloped along in front all the Way to win by three lengths in 1:13, the best time of the meeting. Directly after the start Tanya was slightly interfered with by Avauntcer ami Koerner pulled her up and allowed Sewell to take a lead that she could never overcome, though she ea-ily outran the others. As a trial for the Belmont Parti event, both Sewell and Tanya gave a satis factory performance and they can both be counted upon as strong factors in the race. Blandv. outrun early, was closing up fast at the end and will do better over the increased distance of the Metropoll-tan.
