MUDDY TRACK AT JAMAICA. 3 ADORATION EASILY TAKES SAYVILLE ,! CI STAKES FROM FLOWAWAY. 1 i a i J. F. Donohue Placed in Two Races Monfort al all tl the An Easy Winner Brancas Again to the Front. . St al at v Now York, October 20. R. T. Wilson, Jr., scored a double at Jamaica today with Monfort and Adora- w Hon, K. Dugau riding the pair to victory in such Is a hesitating and novice-like fashion that their backers la were kept in an aggravating and unnecessary state of suspense throughout the running. Adora-tion, which was opposed to an awfully poor lot in the in only stake feature on the card, the Sayville Selling Stakes, at one mile and a sixteenth, was lield at i. prohibitive odds in the betting. Monfort, at evens, should have appealed to the public, but he did not, o there being a pronounced tendency to play all 11 around bini. Outside of these two, racegoers re- oolvod scant comfort, as three second choices and" a an outsider accounted for the remainder of the card. Obort, the longest-priced winner during the after- n noon, is a full-brother to the celebrated mudlark, t Herbert, and proved to be as much at home in the s going as his renowned predecessor, although in a v small way. A regular gale prevailed during the f preceding night, and the day opened dreary and up- t inviting. A marvelous change for the better took r place later on, and the afternoon turned out to be an Ideal one, but a trillo windy. - 1 Youthful was a decided favorite for the first race, t; but quit badly after running second to the stretch t and at the finish Obert won going away from the j long shots, Miss Mazzoni ;nul Orfano. . . s Lord Stanhope was held in judicious reserve, while Pnnky and Golden West carried oil Cie running" ITf ; the second race and, coming with a, wet sail at the t right time, passed them and finally won away off j by himself, J. F. Donohue heading Schroeders Mid- way for second money. 1 Scratching reduced the third race to four starters t and it was no trouble at all for Monfort to win from Summer Cloud, with Killiecrankie a good third. Adoration was so obviously the best of tiie four starters for the Sayville Stakes, that she was always . an odds-on favorite and the easiest of winners, but it was a close fit between Flowaway and Yorkist for second money, the former only landing it after a bitter struggle. Ramrod showed quite a good turn of siced here and it seems that he should soon graduate from the maiden class. " The tabled history of the Sayville Stakes is as follows: Year. Winner. Wt. Jockey. Val. Time. 1901 Chaniphiin 90 Travels 000 1:17s 1905 True Wing 103 Komanclli . 1,015 1:47 1900 Rye 113 W. Miller.. 900 1:4SJ 1007 Adoration . . OS E. Dugan.. 045 1:4S Rrancas had a hot time of it in winning the fifth race from Smiling Tom, but he did it and brought woe to some plungers who thought the Bcl-monc cast-off could not lose. J. F. Donohue could not take second money this time and put tip witli third, giving quite an exhibition of stamina in his two races. Very indifferent maidens contested the last race tufd this time it was Vestnlxdlas turn to graduate. Uussell T. was a good second and his own turn may not be far away. In the last race Greenlands owner unsuccessfully tried to have his horse excused by the stewards on account of lameness, and Citrona ran away three furlongs while at the post and refused to come back willingly, entailing an unusual delay. A claim of foul lodged by the rider of Ramrod against Yorkist was not allowed. Smiling Tom was claimed out of, the fifth race by .1. W. Blalock for ,050. There may be developments in the Jockey Club appeal against Yonkcrs. .las. W. Wadsworth was at the track.
