SCHREIBERS SHARE IS TWO. MISS HIGHLAND AND BILL EATON WIN FOR THE MISSOURI TURFMAN. Light Wool Defeats Collector Jcssup and Hanbridge . Colonel White Unexpectedly L Takes a Race. L San Francisco. Cal.. December 2G. Barney Schrci-her scored ji double at Oakland today with. Miss Highland and Bill Eaton. Lucrative odda were quoted against each of the Woodlands Stud representatives, tbo Ally coins to the post one of tiie extreme outsiders, at 20 to 1. in her race, while the colt was at 4 to 1 in the closing race. They both attracted plenty of support because of their evident pood condition. The decisive ease with which they disposed of superior-class opposition reflected credit on the trainer of thes immense racing stable. With forty horses in training and the main track available for work-outs only at intervals, the feat of preparipg Miss Highland and Bill Eaton for their winning efforts this afternoon was considered remarkable. For a card following so closely on the Christmas offering, todays was unusually varied and interesting. Its running was witnessed by a crowd which taxed the capacity of the inclosure. The feature, at one mile, named the Hunter Handicap, wns contested by six horses, of which Light Wool. Collector Jessup and Hanbridge were conspicuous. As was expected, the race was confined strictly to this re-tloubtable trio. The extraordinary ease with which Light Wool dominated the running evoked exclamations of surprise on every hand, as it seemed almost unbelievable that such an admittedly good horse as Hanbridge would be unable to make any impression on the lender, though under full pressure, at any stage of the journey. The racing began well for form backers when Knight Deck, at 17 to 10. captured the opener. Little Siss. at 8 to 5, emulated in the next race. With the exception of Light Wool, outsiders accounted for the remainder of the card. Colonel Whites winning effort in the fifth was such a sudden improvement over his preceding race that it caused comment. He is a fresh horse, however, and it is thought that Captain Kennedy, Billy Pullman and Be Tliunkful are staling off. K. L. Thomas two-year-old, Hampass. was the medium of some sensational plunging in the last race. The arrival from Santa Anita of James Bodens string of five horses, including Botanist, is expected at Oakland next Monday. In.viewf rumors that, be was in bad condition i Tthysleally. jockey D. McCarthys recent and sudden f lapse from good form in the saddle is being looked into liy Judge Hopper.
