New York, July 11. T. C. McDowells Lady Anne, the four-year-old iilly liy Kinley Mack Bracegirdle, captured the Jamaica Stakes at Brighton Beach today from eight tried siirintevs. including .liicoldte, lied Kiver and Clare Uussell. The winner led tin? entire distance of six furlongs and established a new track record of 1:113, the previous record being 1:11!, held jointly hy Bose-Iipii, Comedienne, l.elle Strouic and Lux Casta. Lady Anne was admirably ridden by Walter Miller, got n way in front, proceeded to set a fast pace and aided by a snug stretch run, her ultimate victory was never in serious jeopardy, rnougn Jacobite was only a head behind her at the finish. Track conditions considered, the rain of the early morning having left it somewhat soft and uncertain, it was one of the most notable achievements of the American turf. The Jamaica was a selling stakes and the owner was called upon to protect, his lilly to the tune of ,r0.1 over and above the entered selling price of .100, but he could well aJTord to do so. as he had backed her stanchly at tlie liberal odd of I to 1. Clare Hussell, though she failed to get in the first three at the finish, displayed sensational speed in the middle running. Tlie tabled history of the Jamaica Stakes is Riven below: Year. Winner. A.

Cairngorm qualified splendidly for tlie coming Brighton Handicap when he carried 120 pounds to victory in the mile and a sixteenth handicap. lie was never extended lieyound a common canter and defeated horses of good caliber, including Far West, as if they were cheap selling platers. Tlie Paget horse was ridden by Miller and seemed hopelessly surrounded and pocketed during the third quarter of the running. Experts marvelled at the jockeys skill and daring in extricating Ids mount from his dangerous position and there was much cheering when Cairngorm Hashed through the narrow opening . on the Inside and came home practically alone. Far West was an equal choice in the betting with Cairngorm at the close and carried the wise money. Tlie public, however, were down on the winner at S to r.. Itncing began with a victory for F. It. Hitchcocks beautiful filly. Keep Moving. She ran away from such good ones as The Squire, Gene Bussell, Bellwether and Castlewood as if they had been anchored. An excuse! was forthcoming for these distinguished trailers, however, in that the start was one of the worst seen in the east this season. The ring laid as good as 10 to 1 against the winner, and it is rumored that J. K. Madden scored a big coup. Question Mark, virtually left at the post, closed a big gap, but when Sandy realized the futility of further efforts with Lakelands colt, he jerked him up so sharply that he nearly went down. There were two disqualifications, and both affected horses which finished second. Hed Leaf was the sufferer in Hie second race and Sanguine u the third. Joe Xenlon at prohibitive odds was the first winning favorite that came to the relief of the form followers. C. E. Durnell was forced to pay the big bonus of ,00:; to retain the good youngster. William Dubois was tlie unexpected bidder, going to $",000 before he stopped.. Durnell and Dubois have just bad a falling out over the mare Lotus, which tlie former handled on a lease arrangement last winter. This was further aggravated when Durnell insisted that there had been an understanding that lie was to have a joint hid with Dubois for Charles Edward at the recent Paget-Thomas sale. When Durnell tendered half of the price to Dubois, he refused to accept it declaring that he was the sole owner as well as bidder. Lady Karma won the sixth race, running unbacked by her owner Dave Gideon and The Wrestler accounted for the closing race. When the track is so fast that such a horse can gallop three-quarters of a mile in l:12i, the smashing of records is to be expected and should not be surprising. In connection with the disqualification of It oil Leaf, jockey Scoville was set down for six days by the stewards. They held Garner, the rider of Sanguine, blameless.
