THE TWENTYFIRST FUTURITY AT HAND This is Futurity day at Sheepshead Bay and the day of the twentyfirst running of a race that has always evoked profound InteruKt since Proctor Knott Salvator and Galen struggled home together In a thrilling drive Monday September Jt 1SSS The race will not be run under the lively and in ¬ spiring conditions that have heretofore character ¬ ized its annual decision but even with the absence of iMttlng ami the overabundance of petty official scrutiny there will be an attendance worthy of the occasion occasionAs As was pointed out would be the case by Daily Racing Form the race has practically boon reduced to a duel between the powerful Keene Madden and Whitney stables There may be added starters but it is hardly probable A month ago it would have been said that the race was at the mercy of John E Madden but as indicated in Dally Racing Forms Xew York dispatches a different opinion prevails now At the same time It is by no means Improbable that the opinion of a month back may not have been correct Races lo not always go to favorites favoritesThe The ownership breeding weights riders and probable odds against those named overnight to start together with the best time at threequarters or nearest to that distance made by them are as PedigreeJ Owner Color Sex Horse Pedigree Wt Jockey J E Maddens ch c Sir Martin by Ogilen Lady Sterling 27 H Shilling Shilling1ZT J BelleJ E Maddens ch c Fayette bv Ogden Saratoga Belle 1ZT J Lee J H Keenes br c Helmet bv Disguise St Mildred IU V Powers H P Whitneys ch e Bobbin by Mtddler Handspnn V l J Butler II P Whitneys b c Hillside by Hamburg Morningside 11 Gilbert J IJ Keenes br f Masketto by Disguise Blturica US Xotter A Belmonts ch c Practical by Hastings St Priscilla 117 U McDaniel II P Whitnovs ch c Perseus bv Persimmon lrania 117 E Dugan H B Duryeas b f Mediant by Meddler Ballantrae 110 D McCarthy The Futurity is the richest event of the American turf for twoyearolds and even under the difficulties attending the carrying on of racing over Xew York tracks will draw a great crowd to Sheepshead Bay today to witness its decision In value it has ranged from the G7075 won by Potomac in ISllO down to the Ji MO that rewarded Colins superiority in sp ed last year It will probably be worth something more to the owner of the winner this year than Colin won for Mr Keene Hich as the Futurity has been from the start it has never realized its originators dream of eventually proving wortli 100000 to some fortunate and now seems more than unlikely to ever do so It has fallen to many grand race horses Mor ¬ eno Domino Artful and Colin representing the very extreme of the possibilities of the thoroughbred horse with Potomac His Highness Kequltiil and Yankee but a moderate degree below these bright stars of the turf Nothing of Colins overwhelming merit is to contest the Futurity of this year but Sir Martin Fay ¬ ette Maskotte Helmet and some others likely to start are twoyearolds of more than ordinary speed and promise and fully capable of furnishing a contest fully up to the tradition of the great event The record of the Futurity is as follows f Year First FirstISSS Jockeys Wt Second Wt Third Wt Val Time ISSS Proctor Kuott Kuott1SS9 Barnes 112 Salvator 108 Galen 115 40900 l15i 1SS9 Chaos Day 100 St Carlo CarloHamilton lJ2 l15ilJ2 Siualoa II 105 54500 1101 1800 Potomac Hamilton 115 Masher 108 Strathuicath 124 C7075 114J 1801His Highness J McLaughlln 1JO Yorkvllle Belle 115 Dagonet 108 01075 115 lS92tMorello Hay ward 118 Lady Violet 118 St Leonards 115 40450 1121 1S93 Domino Tarajl0 Galilee 115 Dobbins lJO 48855 112 1804v The Butterflies GriUinll2 Brandy wine 108 Agitator 110 48710 111 1111VU 1895 Requital GrlOiu 115 Crescendo 1VU Silver II 108 53190 lllg 1SOG Ogden Tubervllle 115 Ornament 110 Rodermond 115 43790 110 1897 LAlouette Clawspiill5 Lydlan 115 Uriel 115 34200 111 1S9S Martimas H Lewis 118 High Degree 113 Mr Clay 110 36010 l12s 1899 Chacornac Spencer 114 Brigadier 100 Windmere 112 30630 l10g 1900 JJallyhoo Bey T Sloan 112 Olympian 112 Tommy Atkins120 33580 110 1901 Yankee OConnor 110 Lux Casta 109 Barron 112 30850 l09i 1902JSavable LyncllO Lord of the Vale 117 Dazzling 110 44500 114 1903 Hamburg Belle Fuller 114 L inidas 123 The Minute Manl22 30600 113 1901 Artful Hildebrandai4 Tradition 127 Sysonby 127 40830 llli 1905 Ormondalc Redfernll7 Timber 110 Belmere 117 32900 111 J 1900 Electioneer Shaw 117 Pope Joan 110 De lund 123 30880 l13ji 1907 Colin W Miller 121 117 Chapultcpcc 117 20040 111 J Jlie Huron finished second but was Isnorcd as a starter by the lie Coney Island Jockey Club Distance reduced to 12G3 yards 1 foot Increased to full 4 mile
