SCHREIBER DAY AT BELMONT ! WINNERS OF THE FIRST THREE RACES j FROM WOODLANDS FARM. I Two of Them Sons of Miss Marion — Minnie G. Comes Near Makinq it Three for , Her Dam — Miller is Warned. ] N.-w York. May 1 ». — Barney Schre ibers horses were much iu evidence at Belmont Iark to-day. , Hie first three winners— Tom McGratb, Banyan and .Toe Carey — are products of liis Woodlands stud. Banyah and Joe Carey carried the Schreiber colors. while Tom McGratb won for Herman Brandt, trainer for the stable. They were each at good odds and Ilic followers of the stable cleaned up I goodly sum. which the subsequent defeats of Min nie Q. and Chief Hayes, also S-hreiber bred and ou ned horses, did not by any means efface. Tom McGrath was favorite for the opening rate at .". to 2. backed down from 4 to 1. Banyan, which beat some smart looking juveniles in the second race, went to the post at 20 to 1 : while Joe Carey, winner of the Larchmout Stakes, the days feature, was hacked from 10 to 1 to 7 to 1. The success of these three naturally brought a following from Minnie G. in the fourth race and at the upper end of the stand it appeared that she would win. but she was jusi beaten out of third place at the end. Could Minnie G. have won. a unique showing, which probably would constitute a record, would have been mad.- for Miss Marion, one of the prize broodmares of the Woodlands Stud. Tom McC.rath. is by Sain, out of Miss Marion: Joe Carey is by Bannockbiirn. out of the same dam: while Minnie G. is a full sister to Tom McGratb. However, furnishing two of the da ■ winners and one that ran so prominently as did Minnie G.. is a pretty good showing in itself for a broodinare. Biinyah is a smart looking chestnut colt by Ban-nockhurn — Winyah. and was clearly best of the field, which included some youngsters well liked by their respective owners. Preston was hustling Ban-yah when a furlong out, but it may have been that that he was afraid the colt was inclined to .oaf. for be always had a good lead. Bauyah has two stake engagements at the meeting, being eligible for the Bouquet and Kclipse. Joe Carey came to the Larchmont Stakes a maid.»n. There were evidences of his fast work, but they were supplemented by the rumor that he had not shown a disposition to maintain his speed for seven lurlougs, the I.archmont distance, but he was in front all the way. In the final furlong he was tiring badly and swerved, but he had raced the others dizzy in the early part of the contest and rame home winner by two lengths. No trio of victories for one owner could have been more popular, for "The Dutchman from Mis souri" is very well liked in the east. The success of the stalde here last year when he won •1:25.000 and sold upwards of #00,000 worth of horses, together with the showing already made by trainer Brandt this season, will be to give Woodlands stud and Mr. Schreibers stallions, Sain and Bannockburn, a great vogue in the east. Although the morning gave glowing promise of some real spring weather, the illusion was rudely dispelled by the heavy black clouds which came up before racing began. Fortunately they were not in evidence until a majority of the crowd had started for the track, and the attendance was first class. During the running of the first race it was so datk lhat the colors could not be distinguished on tin-far turn. • After that there was a severe electrical storm and the rain continued almost without interruption throughout the afternoon. The track was floppy and form was pretty well upset, Tom McGrath and Marbles being the only wiuniug favorites. In the stretch run for the fifth Race, Dolly Spanker, ridden by Miller, carried Holscher wide. Miller ■was called into the stand and given a severe lec Hire for his rough riding tactics, accompanied with ii threat of suspension in case of a repetition. With two important stake races, a steeplechase and such good horses as Jack Atkin. Saracenesca. Don Enrique; Seymour Beutler. Wave Crest. Youthful: Sanguine. Raymond, Dead Gone; Good and Ilenty. Dr. Keith. Sandalwood; McCarter. Halifax. Ked Kiver: Entree. Tony Bonero and Azelina show Jng among the entries, a day of grand racing sems to be in store for the big crowd sure to be at Be! inont Iark tomorrow.
