T g: . n a at j, if 0 c e Sl s n n r f , t | [ . , DEUTSCHLANDS GOOD FORM. GIVES MUCH WEIGHT AWAY AND W.TNsi EASILY FROM GOOD RACERS. Apto Oro and Cloyne Defeated by Long Shots in Unexpected Fashion — Good Track in Prospect for Burns Handicap. Oakland.. Cal.. January 22.— Deutschlaud displayed marked stake form by his brilliant achievement in the feature race, the San Pablo Haudicap, Oakland today. Barney Schreibers wonderful old stallion carried top weight of 122 pounds as it was a feather aud won a cantering victory over a quartette of lightly weighted horses, including a seriously considered Burns Handicap eligible. Johnny Lyons, to which he was conceding seventeen pounds. Deutschlaud opened and closed a strong public choice and his success was received with tremendous enthusiasm. While four favorites made good during the afternoon it is doubtful if either the plunging contingent or the rank and tile laid up anything on their ring operations, due to the two stunning upsets furnished in the two-year-old race and the concluding race. ••Halter" Tommy Griffin furnished the winner of the former In his False Nun. which he had taken great pains to deny having done any fast work iu private, as was reported. As a matter of fact the tieautifully bred filly by The Friar— Betties Deceiver had worked three furlougs at Santa Anita in thirty-four seconds before coining up here and heavy support was forthcoming from her Los Angeles admirers iu both of her preceding public efforts, when there was evidently nothing doing. Today False Nun delivered the goods at odds of HO to 1 in a style that stamps her more than useful. The greatest upset, however, came in the last race when Raleigh, ti neglected TjO to 1 shot, galloped away from the supposed invincible Cloyne, with Walter Miller up. Everybody, including the owner of the winner, stood agape over the result. The wagering on Cloyne. which was considered the surest tip on the card, was of the heaviest description and her defeat netted the layers a fortune. Walter Miller continues to hold his own with two victories and two seconds to his credit out of five mounts. Jocund, which finished beaten off. was so palpably unfit to race before the race that he should have been ordered withdrawn. Glorious weather prevailed and if it keeps up until Saturday the big race will be run over a fairly good track. ■ In that event it is possible that as many as twenty-live horses may start. There was a slight falling off in the number of layers at to-days draw-in, thirty-six as against thirty-eight taking positions. One of the largest off day crowds of the meeting was attracted to the track by the good card and fine weather. Trainer Harry Mason is confined to his home by a threatened attack of pneumonia. J. L. Holland arrived today from Los Angeles. He brought his good Burns Handicap candidate, Colonel Jack, with him. Henry Flittner. Barney Schreibers cashier, was taken suddenly ill yesterday. Edwin Gum has developed a quarter crack and will run iu hat plates as a result.
