HOW MR. HEADLEY WON SOK.E EASY MONEY. Lexington, Ky.. June IS. — Wheal Motor Cop won the opening race at Itelmont lark yesterday it was the equivalent to transferring fl.SSS of fc. It. Bradleys money to Hal Price Headleys packet. In a smoking cur one day last fall after lleadley had sold Motor Cop. Tracksend and War Machine then unnamed yearlings by his good sire Dade to A. K. Macom-ber, a number of turfmen were engaged in discussing horses, when John W. Schorr remarked upon the speed of the colt now known as Nib. Bradley ventured that he would wager that that colt would not win a race in 1917. Schorr thought a while and declined the bet. Headley then proposed that he would wager 00 on each of three yearlings he had bred and sold, to win in 1917. Bradley quickly took him up and Headley named the three. Then the wager was increased to 00 each. AVar Machine and Tracksend had won prior to today, and the latter stamped himself as a star by winning the Keene Memorial. Headley has yeaxlings from the dams of War Machine and Tracksend and weanlings from the dams of all three of these two-year-olds.
