, . . - 1 . J BEST OF THE THREE -YEAR-OLD FILLIES OF THE EASTERN TURF Among the three-year-old tallies of the eastern turf last year E. 15. Cassatts Flying Fairy was quite the q.ieen of her age and sex. She is a homebred, Mr. Cassatt owning loth her sire and dam. Her speed is of n high order and last year she demonstrated her ability to stay well over a considerable distance. When a two-year-old she was not started until the racing year was well advanced, making her debut at Flavre du race, Monday, September !, 1012, in a purse race for maiden iillies at five and a half furlongs, in which she finished third to Cadeau and Ilenpeek in 1:00. In a similar race, but at live-eighths of a mile, September 14, she ran second to Verdure and was only beaten by a nose in 1:005. Three days later she was unplaced at five-eighths to Flammarion, Henpeck and George Stoll in 1:00, but had been bumped and Knocked back in the early running so as to have no chance and was eased up. Her next essay resulted in her initial success. This was at Laurel, October 22, in a dash of five and a half furlongs for maiden two-, ear-olds. It was a slow track and, making the pace all the way, she won by a length from Phyllis Antoinette, favorite and making her first start, with -Ambrose third and nine more unplaced. Time, 1:10. October 24 at the same track and distance she won again, bur had some dillieulty in defeating Bingling by a neck, the two finishing five lengths in front of Sand Vale. It was heavy going and the time 1:10. At Pimlico. November 1, she ran third to Ten Point and Tarts at the same distance in 1 :00 over a heavy track. Oliver Lodge, Buskin, Grosvenor, Robert Bradley and Talecarrier finishing behind her. In her next and last tnree races of the year she was unplaced and, altogether, made no great impression as a two-year-old. although her owner was credited with slating she was the fastest horse ever bred by him. Whether he said this or not is of no Importance, but her racing as a three-year-old was good enough to have justified the assertion. She was not immediately successful and was not at her best until the hot weather of midsummer -arrived, but nevertheless ran well in good company. Her lirst start last year was in Hie Wilmington Stakes at Havre de Grace, April 10. This was a sprint of five and a half furlongs, for which Palanquin was a 4 to r favorite, but this somewhat uncertain customer ran unplaced and the good coll, Frederick L., with 120 pounds up, won by a length and a half in 1:07, with Hester Prymie. 00 pounds, second, and Flying Fairy. 100, third. The unplaced ones were Palanquin, 111: Chuckles, 10S; Grosvenor. 10S: Montresor. 10.", and Fifty Five. 104. Three days later she ran second to Phyllis Antoinette .it live-eghths of a mile in 1:00. She carried 110 iioiiiids to 100 on the winner. Triller, 101 ikhuhIs, was third. Lace and Silver Moon running unp.aced. April 24, at the same distance, she carried 100 pounds and san third to Palanquin, ill, and Fred Levy. 102. The track was fast and the time 1:00 Such good ones as I.arnegat, 307: Kloburne. jl2, and .Montresor, 100, formed the also-ran division. April .!0 she was unplaced in a sprint won by Boiling Stone, witli Penobscot second and Besom third. That race concluded her unsuccessful spring campaign at the .Maryland track and she was not started again until June 2 at Belmont Park. On this occasion she was asked to go the longer distance of seven-eighths of a mile with 105 pounds up and acquitted herself so we l that at the finish she was an easing tip winner in l:2o. Palanquin, 110 pounds, was second and Montresor. 100, was third. Six others started, of which Sir John Johnson was one. then she ran third three times in succession before scoring again. The first of these unsuccessful essays .was in the Belmont Stakes. June l.I. .Inly four started Prince Ihigene, 100 pounds; Bock View, 12S; Flying Fairy, 100. and Barnegat, 11. "i and the distance was one and three-eighths miles. Flying Fairy made the running at u fast pace, but did not quite stay home and at the finish Prince Eugene was first by a half .engtli better than Bock View, with Flying Fairy a good third only a length farther back. It was a capital race fcr a lilly not yet at her best, the time, 2:1S. being the best on record for the Belmont Park track. June 21. with 10S pounds up, she ran third to Meridian, 12., and Light O M Life, 117, at seven-eighths of a mile in l:2.j and was only beaten a length. Five other fast ones finished lchitid her.

July S she ran poorly in the Excelsior Handicap at a mile and a sixteenth, Meridian winning, with Cock o Walk second mid Lahore third in 3:44. Four days later, with 100 pounds up, she won at the same .stance in 1:40, defeating Prince Eugene, 112: G. M. Miller. 115, and three more. In the Southariiptoh .Handicap, July 24. at the same distance, she linished first by a length, but had iiiterforefLwith Strenuous in the stretch and v:s disqualified.

There her lirst start was in the Alabama Stakes, for three-year-old fillies at a mi.e and an eighth. Be-!!ig only epposed by Cadeau and Lodosia. with all carrying 11." pounds, it was to be expected that she would be an edds-on lav rite and. going to the post at 2 to 7. she won in a canter in l:.-JJo. with Cadeau second.
