GO BETWEEN LOOMS UP BIG. AFTER YESTERDAYS VICTORY HE MAY BE THE BROOKLYN FAVORITE. Accountant Will Start— Ella ONeill Wins the Bouquet Stakes — Rialto Is Promising—Good Day for Public. New York. May 13. — Although todays card at Belmont Iark was the worst of the meeting, it proved to be a lucky one for tlie puhllc, as five favorites won and all except T. S. Martin were at good odds. The program was a poor one for a track of Belmont Parks pretensions, as it appealed largely to cheap horses and three of the races were run over the straight course, which affords a poor view, especially when a heavy mist hangs over the track as was the case today. The steeplechase, always a great feature and drawing card at this track, had only three starters, and one of these — T. S. Martin— so far outclassed the other two as to rol the rare of Interest so far as any contention was concerned, though it was extremely gratifying to see this good steeplechaser come back after a winters rest in such good condition. He is still the rapid going horse that won the Harbor Hill last fall, his only fault being that he sometimes chances his femes and this might prove fatal in a race where the contention is keen. In the handicap at one mile and an eighth Go Between and Tokalon had their trials for the Brooklyn Handicap and in a fast run race both qualified handsomely. Go Between carried 12$ pounds, while Tokalon had up 121. They were each backed by their owners, with the former always the choice. After Alpermarchen had made the pace Into the stretch he quit and Tokalon took up the running. She was almost Immediately challenged by Go Between. Mountain had the latter under a sharp drive to get to the front, but he was going nway at the finish. Tokalon hung on well and ran a good game on, but was no match for the Meddler horse at th» end. It seems now that Go Between will be the favorite for the Brooklyn. Mountain will have the mount. Seymour Beutler made his first appearance in the east in the second race. He has the reputation of lielng the l est youngster in the Schreiher barn and lie was heavily backed by many shrewd bettors, but never looked like beating Sepoy, the favorite, which led all the way to win in an impressive manner. Seymour Beutler is a good looking colt. He may race better later on. though there was no apparent excuse for him today. Rialto. the third horse, is a smart looking youngster and is almost sure to be beard from In a big way before the season is much further advanced. Ella ONeill, the favorite won the Bouquet Stakes, the only fixture on the card, hut she had to be hustled all the way to beat Laughing Eyes, which ran a smart race. Some confusion was caused after the closing race by the men at the numlier board displaying the number of Ocean Spray as the third horse, when Clolsteress was a safe third. The trouble arose from misreading of the numbers — Cloisteress being No. 13, while Ocean Spray was No. 3. A correction was made before the O.K. was given. VV. Knapp will ride Accountant in the Brooklyn Handicap. It was not known until today that Accountant would start. Trainer Coyne arrived today with Arcite and Sir Huon. Arcite will start in the Brooklyn. Jack Baker also got in with Oat-tontown. Royal Onyx, which finished third in the opening race, was claimed by T. G. Molinelli for .200. Jockeys Radtke and Lowe were suspended for the remainder of the meeting by starter Cassidy. The card for tomorrow is replete with interesting features and with such flyers as Irince Hamburg. Saracinesea, Horace E. ; Wave Crest, King James, Harcourt; Dinna Ken, Aletheuo, Atnpedo; Df. Keith. Sanctus, Kallaheeu; Roseben. Brookdale Nymph, Bed River; Ihilander. Bright Boy and Senator Clay among those likely to start a great concourse, will probably view the racing.
