JUGGLER IN FRONT AGAIN. ; ! DEFEATS GRAPPLE IN CLOSE FINISH : FOR GARDEN CITY STAKES. . i 1 Old Bad News Wins a Good Race at Jamaica i Zipango Defeats Summer Cloud t Rosimiros Fast Sprint. New York, October 25. The attendance vat Jamaica was seriously affected by the overhanging i clouds and prospect of rain during the afternoon. The Garden City Stakes, two handicaps, and three selling races made up an excellent off-day program. Ioul riding marred the second, third and fourth races. Miller rode Summer Cloud, uncomfortably close witli Zipango, which passed unnoticed. In the race following, Horners similar tactics with llosimiro enabled the Poutiac colt to score a narrow victory over Bouquet, the chief and only sufferer. In the stake race, Juggler, the winner, was materially helped to victory by Impeding and crowding the runner-up, Grapple. Outsiders continued to win all down the line until two breaks came to relieve the situation in the fifth :md sixth races respectively, when a lukewarm public choice In Bad News and a hot one in Comedienne, rewarded their backers. Trainer Andrew Jackson Joyner enjoyed the pleasure of taking the lirst race of the day, a selling dash of five and a half furlongs for maiden two-year-old fillies. Tartar Maid was his representative, and at the end of the scurry she was a good length in front of Miss Delauey, which beat Suugleam out by a short, head. Sungleam. was, off in the rear, and, closing- a huge gap, ran in something like the- form that was expected fronv her lastt spring. Jane Swift was the favorite, but gave way easily in the stretch. Zipango, nftcr a number of unsuccessful essays finally .scored in the second race of the day, . chiefly lK!cause of a superior ride- by "Miller, in which he ouiinished A. Martin, who did not know what to do with Summer Cloud when real jockcyship was called for. Tramp, after a long retirement, came out in good form and outstayed Oraculum for third money. Oraculum was an even-money favorite, but, after running well to the stretch, quit badly and will do bettor on another occasion. The handicap at live and a half furlongs, for two-year-olds, resulted in an upset in a fast-run race. With Lawrence I. Daley, Explosion and Spooncr scratched, Sir John Johnson was made the favorite, with Julia Iowel a good second choice, but both ran unplaced. In a hotly contested finish Uosiuiiro won from Bouquet by a short head, and was tiring so- fast -.hat another stride would have put Bouquet in front. Lightly weighted Aunt Rose finished like a Hash and deprived Sir John Johnson of third place. Julia Iowel, a grand-looking filly, led in the early stages, but tired badly in the str-trh. and does not seem to be in the form that enabled her to win the rich Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga. The Garden City Selling Stakes .served to emphasize Jugglers present good form, he giving weight and a beating to such good horses, as Grapple and Dolly Spanker. Grapple out out the pace ttiid made it fast, but Juggler came at him in the stretch and, iu a driving finish, beat him out by a hair length, but holding him in close quarters next to tilt1 iiiside fence. For a horse that but recently won a.t a mile in such excessively fast time as 1:38, Dolly. Spanker ran poorly, although he was third and in front of Bye and Saylor. rllie tabled history of the Garden City Stakes is as follows: Year. Winner. A. Wt. Jockey. Val. Time. 1901 De Beszkc ..5 10G W. Davis ..,120 1:49- 100 Grenade 1 99 Sewell 1,200 1:18 lUOU Bye" 105 W. Miller. . 1,055 1:47 1907 Juggler ......A 105 Jas. Hen sy. 1,010 l:47j Bad News only lost his. last previous .race through adverse racing luck and made amends in the fifth race of the day by runiiiug a capital mile and a quarter and winning iu a gamely contested finish with Siufliug Tom. The latter horee was a rank outsider iu the betting, as be deserved to be on his rCceut ruuujng, but ran like a good one today and forced Bad News to his utmost to win. Pius and Needles ran a surprisingly good rac-j and beat the others "If for third place. Missouri Lad managed to finish fourth,, but was far behind Pins and Needles and ran as if out of form. ! Comedienne disposed of all opposition in the last race without ever being fully extended : and won cantering from Teacress, with ListlesA a good third. Consistent ran poorly, but probably will do better over a longer distance of ground than the three-quarters of todays, race. Tlie stewards of the Jockey Club liave given Davy Johnson a quiet tip to curjail his; spectacular clubhouse and betting ring operations on the penalty of being excluded from both. From an apparently authoritative source comes thu information that the betting at the New Orleans trucks this coming whiter .will probably bo conducted ojj the same Hues as, ou Jockey Club tracks iu tie east. This is a precautionary measure neces-bttry to wurd oft! hostile legislation, imminent on iiccqiint of the Incessant local half-mile track rac-iifff during the past year. Sal -Volatile is on the ailing list. The fast Morgan filly" is fiuffeIn from a severe attack of catarrhal ftjveV and will probably be retired for the season. Phyllis A. bolted into the fence directly in front ; ! : i 1 i t of the grandstand while parading" to the post in the last race, throwing jockey Rrussel heavily to the ground. The latter escaped Uninjured. W. M. Rogers lias bought Knockirky from W. C. Daly for racing on the coast; Phil Cliinn will race a liig string at Oakland and Arcadia tracks this wiuter. .lie expects to ship from Aqueduct and will stop over at the Kentucky farm and take a carload of yearlings along: Lord Lovat ran away three miles in his preliminary before - the fourth race and was - ordered scratched. " Belle Griffon, one of the . hottest tips developed, this season, backed from--JO to 15 to 1, -fluttered her noisy supporters for a half mile and then bolted to the outside in the strelch. ...
