SUBURBAN HANDICAP NEXT BIG RACE. Popular Feature of the Old Coney Island Jockey Club Will Be Decided at Belmont Park Saturday. New York. June ;. The Suburban Handicap is the next big stake on the turf calendar to attract the att ntion of racing enthusiasts. The Suburban will be run at li-lmont Park next Saturday. !:. T. Wilsons C.-impfire. August Delmoiits Hour-less and The Finn are an g those nominated for tin Ml; race. The defeat of Campfire. and his failure to finish inside the a ey in the Withers came as tin-keenest of racing disapiHiintments to Mr. Wilson. Last years champion tara-year aid, which .ill along, and especially since the Toboggan, has been hailed as just as gnat a threeyear-old. will have a chance to redeem himself. :is he is Mr. Wilsons DBly entry for next Saturdays stake. After Saturdays race. Mr. Wilson had little to say. and T. J. Ileahy. trainer of Campfii •■■. was a mighty downcast man. "I have no excuse to offer." s.iiil Henley. "I every reason to believe Campfire Was jllst as good as he ever was. :n,d yet be didnt able to run a lick in the fin.-il struggle, and finished more tired than I ever aw him come on! f a race." Ilowev-r. it is .-i w II known f.nt that horses have their bad days, along with their good ones, and it is to he hoped that Campfire is not going to turn out a mere spriater. Il.iurh s is also among the eligibh s for the Suburban, ihmg with Str.imboli. Fernrock. Deer Trap and W Itrap. all of which were placed ai ig the entries of Mr. Belmont. .Inst now it would be mi safe to predict just which one or two Mr. lielmont and trainer llihlreth will select to go in the big evcat. A Bother great horse, and one which has had much of hard lack in his racing. hich is expected to go alter the prize of S.iturday. is James Batters Spur, a great time year old of last year, .ind ■ promising four year old this aeaaoa. For this race Mr. Batter also baa Ballad], Bieeaa and Ivory Black eligible. It seems almost certain that 11. C. Hallenbe.-k will b.- i-i -presented by The Iinn. which has proved himself in fine form already, and is being kept in gnat condition by trainer Bd IlelTm-r. A. K. Macomber Has Good Entry. Although A. K. Macomber had no entry in the Withers, he has a greater number-of eUgibtea for the Suburban than has nny other owner, he having entered no less Una fifteen of his best ones. Beats and Bd Crump, the two that went after the K-n-tacky Handicap at Douglas Park last Saturday, are Sul. urban eligihlos. Dodge and North Star III, which wen- entered, have gone lame, but Mr. Macomber still has ■ fine bind to select fr un. these others being Hank ODay. Dick Williams. Star Hawk. The Cock. War Star. Hollister, Star Master, Star Gaaer, and that great filly Sunbounet, recent winner of the Kentucky Oaks. Aa old favorite that probably will not be able to ga in this years Suburban is Andrew Millers Koamer. which palled up lame aad developed ,i filled ankle after finishing third in Saturdays Keataeky Handicap. However. Mr. Miller has Ticket, which performed most creditably in the Kentucky Derby, to carry his silks in the coming event. John B. Madden has iillies and liendrie to go lor him. Bal Iarr also has four eligihlos in Crimper. Daddy Long- Kegs, The Belgian II and Nebraska. Jehu Sanford may have a starter in Ceo go Smith, and he al-o has two other rUgibtea in .Meteorite and Sandstone H. aa imported one. The Harry layne Whitaey stable will have one or more g.,..d m to arad after tin- big stake, for there are no less than eight entered from this .stablishment. After the good performances of Barrow and Btekety on Saturday, it would not be surprising I., see i ither en.- or both of these among ti i. s carded to go. Joseph B. Whlencr also has a good baud to draw to in the three im polled ones. Mainteiianl. tin- largest horse in training, and Chicht and Naturalist, not to speak of Cn -kwick.
