TWO GRAND FILLIES FIRST TRANCE WINS THE AUTUMN STAKES AND MASKETTE THE GREAT FILLY STAKES Doranto Runs a Fast Mile and a Quarter in the Twin TwinCity City Handicap Stamina Finishes Finishesa a Resolute Tlurdi New York September 2 An unexpectedly big crowd journeyed to Shcepshead Bay to witness the running of the Coney Island Jockey Clubs allstar racing program for today The wonderful twoyearolds Maskette and Trance suid a number of other turf celebrities were carded to start James It Keenes champion twoyearold captured the rich Great Filly Stakes in much the same Impressive fashion as she did the Futurity while Wedding Bells the stables second string be Cfline hardly less conspicuous by her meritorious per ¬ formance in finishing an easy second John E Maddons pair Lady Bedford and Lady Ilubbard and 11 1 Duryeas Mediant made up the formidable quintette of lillies that were sent out to battle for tho rich prize In the actual running Mediant led the others for nearly live furlongs liefore she was displaced and Wedding Bells was her nearest attendant In the meantime Maskette was loafing but in near prox ¬ imity to the leaders As the Held swept around the turn Nottw shook liis whip twice and as he ex ¬ pressed it Maskctte was in front before 1 had time to lay my whip down Oh 1 had no fear of the outcome whatever I know the old girls way rutty well and know she was loafing on me It was easier than riding lit an automobile to win with Maskette today Both of the Maildeu allies were hopelessly outpaced for more than half of the jour ¬ ney but in the stretch they made sensational spriuls and their races confirmed the belief that he has In the orderThe two a pair of stayers of a rare order The Great Filly Stakes yas first run for in 1001 iMiil its history

Leonora Loring finished first but was disqualified disqualifiedMr Mr Madden seemed somewhat upset over todays result It is well known that he considers Lady Bed ¬ ford very little behind Sir Murtin and he even ad ¬ mitted that Maskette was a harder proposition to tackle with Sir Martin in the Flatbush in view of her willingness to respond to restraint and the evi ¬ dent ease with which she can be placed than lie had bargained for It is the consensus oC expert opinion that neither Sir Martin nor any other two yearold developed this season has any business with Maskette over any distance distanceJames James It Keene remained at home on account of a winAnother cold ami did not see his peerless filly win Another wonderful twoyearold filly feat had preceded 1his in the Autumn Stakes when Trance scored lier tenth consecutive victory including a dead heat with Filz Herbert from probably the best vlass band of horses of lier own age that she has ever been opposed to Trances manner of victory over Sea Cliff Bobbin Edward and Schleswig dered on the sensational in view of the ease and remarkably fast 111110 In which she 1 eat them She won her race pulling up in J12j which was one

a quarter far overshadowed the two juvenile fixtures in importance One of the most evenly matched fields in the history of the race composed of ten horses of high class started There was no pronounced favorite There was a tendency to favor Frank Gill by the big operators down town but to Stamina Dandelion and Dorante were ac ¬ corded the bulk of the support The start found Frank Gill unprepared and lie dropped quickly and completely out of contention and stayed there Stamina made the running fast and at the end of a mile the race seemed to lay between Stamina Dorante Dandelion Masler Itobert and Firestone Angelus and Philander had each shot his Iwlt on the far turn and Moufort had not got into serious con ¬ tention Simultaneously as the field straightened for home Dorante on tho inside and Master Robert mi the outside singled out of the ruck and in the desperate closing struggle which ensued Dorante with the advantage of an inside close turn as against Master Itoberts outside position was able to withstand the latter long enough to win by a length Stamina was a game but distant third The thirdThe Tyin City Handicap is an old Coney Island fixture first run for in 1SS1 Its tabled
