New York, September 1". Herman B. Duryeas Sandringham Dorothy Hampton colt, Prince Hampton, was tin star performer at Sheepshead Bay tliis afternoon. He came out with Ostrich, Quagga and. others in an eleven furlong selling race on the turf and, heating his party in an impressive way, hung, up a new track record by running the distance in 2:58. It was a line piece of racing with a frame of brilliant speed. There was another huge crowd out and the tracu, while generally good, was spotty and cuppy In spots. The air was delightful and the sport of good quality. Only one favorite. Jack Atkin. got home first. He had a hard time of it and won only by a few Indies. The other betting choices were bowled over. Iriuce Hamptons victory at 15 to 1, nearly at the end. slaughtered the players of form and followers of favorites. Brookdale Nvmphs victory over Dandelion In the Omnium Handicap was scratchy, but the Whitney mare ran a sparkling race and might have been the best. The western colt Johnnie Make again showed his quality and liking for the turf, by bowling over Castlewood and The Squire, in the easiest sort of way. Kunning Account enriched his party again by a line race and defeat of Danoseara, First Premium, lleasllp and others of good class. Marbles, at a good price, scored in decisive style over Aunt Hose in the closing event. Miller showed a line piece of horsemanship on Jack Atkin. , , Barney Schrelber landed the first race with Jack Atkin, but It required till of Millers skill to bring him In first- Mr. Whitneys promising maiden, Westbury, clung to him tenaciously through the stretch, and was slowly wearing him down at the finish. Don Enrique, after overcoming serious dillicultios in the early running was lapped on the pair at the end ami going fastest, and might have won if free from obstruction from the start. Quite a distance back but running well. Prejuicio was next in front of the disappointing Red Kiver. Hunuing. Account seems to be more than an average two-year-old, and in taking the second race from such recognized good older horses as Danoseara, Heaslip, First Premium and Oxford put a decidedly meritorious performance to his credit, lie made up ground steadily from a rearward start and challenging resolutely in the stretch won by a narrow margin from Danoseara in such excellent time for the track as 1:30s. Danoseara also ran a cracking good race and probably should have won. The other two-year-old in the race, Rialto, was responsible for the fast time scored, setting a red hot price for over seven furlongs before he tired. Heaslip went well and is on the improving list. Oxford seems in poor form and First Premium was unlucky and ran disappointingly. The Golden. Rod Stakes was another triumph for the Cook stable, Johnnie Make leading from start to finish and winning with all ease from some smart youngsters, to which lie was conceding much weight. Castlewood put up a game struggle for second place and outstayed The Squire by a matter of a few inches in a punishing finish.

Prince Hampton stamped himself a rarely good stayer- in the fifth race, a dash of a mile and three-quarters over the turf course, defeating two heavily backed choices In Hanker and Ostrich and establishing a new turf course record for the distance. He ran the race in 2:5SJ, effacing Lancastrians turf course record of 3:00s, made last year. It also beat Imps record of 2:59J over the main course, made June "0. 1900. It is the fashion to decry Brnssels riding, but the boy rode like a veteran in tills instance, saved his mount judiciously aiid made his effort at the right time. Banker rah In quickly improved form and easily disposed of Ostrich for second place. The latter had beaten him off a few days previously in a mile and a half nice In which Brancas had beaten Ostrich a head. Qttagga ran a good mile and a half before retiring. The last race, a scurry for two-year-old fillies oVer the last five and a half furlongs of the Futurity. Course, resulted in a decisive triumph for the somewhat Inconsistent Marbles.
