GRAND RACING AT ROYAL ASCOT. Bayardo Easily Victor in the Famous Gold Cup-Americans Do Well with Four Rich Races. London. June IS. — No more brilliant racing ever ti«ik place at Aseot than characterized the progress of the meeting just closed. The attendance as a whole was not up to that of last year, and the fact that little but the sable hue of mourning was visible deprived the meeting of its usual glilter and festivity, hut what was lacking in gayety and captivating displays of fashions fripperies was atoned for by the genuinely high class racing that marked Ascots four days. By all odds the great race of the meeting was that for the Cold Cup. Here Bayardo triumphed gloriously and stamped himself truly a tirst-class race horse. Two French candidates of high class gave the race ;in international flavor that was height ened by the participation of Sir Martin as a representative of American breeding. One of the French candidates, Mr. Vauderbilts Sea Sick II.. managed to liuish second, a head before Bachelors Double, but Sir Martin was a pulled-up and sorely distressed last. Thirteen started, a record for the event, and every one had gallantly earned on other fields of endeavor tin- right to contend for championship honors. Danny Maher was content to gallop Bayardo along in the rear for two miles, then with a half mile to g brought him to the front with a superb display of speed and. drawing away, Bayardo won by an easy four lengths. The two miles anil a half of the race were covered in four minutes and t treaty-three and two fifths seconds, one fifth of a second slower than the record made by Bachelors Buttou in 1906 when he defeated the famous Pretty Holly. The Goilapoe of Sir Martin was as unlooked for as it was startling, for on his running in the Coronation Cup he should have finished in front of Bachelors Double. Soon after turning into the Swinloy Bottom lie raced into fourth or fifth place, but then collapsed as if clioked. and Martin, finding that all was not well with his mount, pulled him up. The son of Qpdeaj passed the stands very weary at the tail end of the field, and it was at first thought that he had broken a blood vessel. This, however, did not turn out to be the ens*. The fact is that he was twice heavily kicked while at the past for the Coronation Cup and afterward* was found to be so hurt that it was accessary to keop him in his stall for four days, and it was then impossible to again train him into that condition essential iu the case of a cup candidate. American owners did very well at the meeting. H. I. Wfcttaey won the Trial Stakes with Whisk Broom. All -Aired Stakes with New Castle and Windsor Castle Stakes with Borrow, while Charles Carroll carried off the iiftv-eighth Ascot Triennial with his excellent Meddler colt. Night Kider. On the first day of the meeting Mr. Whitneys splendid Hamburg — Lady Krivoles filly met lor first defeat, when in the Fiftv-third Ascot Biennial she had to succumb to St. Nat by a half length. St. Nat is held to lie the best two-year-old colt of the year, and after the race Joyner declared be had shown bad judgment in not starting the Frivoles filly in the richer Coventry Stakes which was run earlier in the day and which he declared she could have won. Whisk Broom was Slaa stalled iii the Hardwicke Stakes, but Made a paoT showing ami seems to be a fast iniler instead of a stayer. No mistake was made when Bachelors Doable was installed favorite for the Royal Hunt Cap. Heavily supported iu the Bate-post lictting as well as on the day of the race his easy victory cost I lie layers a t romoiiikius amount of money. The Royal Hunt Cup. which was inspected by the king ami queen on Monday in London, Is a splendid example of the modern goldsmiths art. The trophy is a two handled cup and cover, with richly chased twisted acanthus leafage ■eralla apoa the body and toot, and a border surrounding the cover eoaapoaed of an acanthus ornament mingled with flowers. The handles are formed of double scrolls clothed with acanthus and water foliage. .lovner. the American trainer, loves to see a lackey sit still on ;l horse, and l oth "Skeets" Martin and V. ONeill appeal to him. as these clever riders have well mastered this not altogether difficult art. ONeill rode Mediant, trained by Joyner. in both the big sprint races she wm last year, and it was a treat to sec him come sailing home on Night Kider in the last race at Ascot Wednesday, horse and rider being in complete unison. For all-round good looks ami stylishness Whisk Broom stands out prominently. Lithe and active Ik this beaulilullv moulded son of Broomstick which Joyner might well have viewed with the utmost Satisfaction after having completed his toilet for the Trial Stakes Tuesday. A little lively at the gate, he was tin- first to hit the ground as the tapes flew up. and though Martin kept at him with hand ami heel when rather more than half the journey had been covered, it was simply to stay his tendency to hang to the right. After disusing of Dean Swift and Yellow Slave decisively he was kept at full stretch till after rounding the bead lor the royal stables before being pulled up. Ascot boasts a great antiquity, as racing has l eeu held continuously on the famous Berkshire heath ever since it was established there by Queen Anne in 1711. A recent sale of yearlings in Austria amply attests the BOpalarity of the thoroughbred in the dual mouarchv. Twenty-seven, sired by Wombwell, G«u-reraaat. Matchbox. Tokio. Con Amore and Sorrento brought a total in vour money of about 2,500, or an average of alxiut .70O. The top price of 0,300 was pabl by Prince Lubomirski for a brown colt by Matchbox — Glauca. The Dutch Derby, decided at The Hague June 15. was won by Baroness M. de Brieneus filly. Ava. by Avington. out of Stewardess. Golden Lassie was second and Hardgaat Ze third. The baroness is the owner of Admiral Togo III., which won the Manchester November Handicap last year. Cyllius, the two year-old brother to Lemberg, Is according to report said to be very smart. The Derby next year will be ruu on Wednesday. May 31. In the race for the Ascot Gold Cup William the Fourth broke down. No great changes have taken place in the winning sins list, but some moderate increases have accumulated. The Ascot racing will serve to bring radical changes because of the great sums won there by the successful horses.
