RICKETY A DERBY WINNER. HAS NO TROUBLE IN DEFEATING TICKET, BALLAD AND WE STY HOGAN. Cum Sah Springs a Surpriso in Taking the Rich East View Stakes from Ultima Thulo and Happy Go Lucky in a Close Finish. New York, July 21. Running to his best form, L. S. Thompsons consistent colt Rickety proved master of a good band of three-year-olds In the first running of the Empire City Derby, the mile and an eighth race, that drew a monster throng to the course on the hill top this afternoon. The Thompson colt was under restraint at the end, while driving hard back of him came Andrew Millers Ticket, which was forced to do his best to defeat James Butlers Ballad for second place honors. Rickety was easily best. The son of Broomstick was rated behind the fast early leader and, moving into second place at the half mile ground, came on with a rush in the stretch turn and had little trouble in passing AVesty Hogan. Once in the lead, Robinson took Rickety under restraint and none came from tho rear to dispute his leadership. Ticket, after being last for the first five-eighths, moved up steadily on the last turn and, finishing with a rush down the straightaway, got up in time to take second place. Ballad, a three-year-old, which lias been racing in selling races, also came on gamely at the end and noised out Westy Hogan for third place. The latter displayed a high turn of early speed and raced into a long lead, but failed badly in the stretch. Talent Gots a Shock in tho East View. G. W. Lofts Cum Sah rudely shocked the talent in the East Aiew Stakes when he lead home the AVickliffe Stables Ultima Thule by the scantest of margins. The winner, a fast beginner set a fast pace, from the start and responded gamely to a drive through the stretch, just lasted long enough to win over Ultima Thule, always a forward contender appeared to be going fastest of the leaders at the finish, but only took second place by a head from Happy Go Lucky. It was the closest finish of the afternoon. This was the third running of the East Aiew Stakes, the brier history of which follows: fPBFiyVVinner. AAt. Jockey. Aral. Time. 914 Pebbles 125 J.

The Brighton Stables Marse nenry pulled up quite lame after the running of the fifth race. J. Powers has returned from AVindsor with the AV. P. Orr racers, including the good sprinter Leocharcs. A big shipment of thoroughbreds -will leave Belmont Park on Monday for Saratoga Springs. In the band will be the J. E. and G. I. AVidener flat racers, the G. AV. Loft stable and the horses under the care of AVilliain Karrick. Howard Oots has arrived from Windsor with his stable, including the good, two-year-old Bolster. This youngster has not been sold to Schuyler L. Parsons as yet, the approval of trainer AAilliam Karrick being necessary to complete the sale. This is being withheld until Mr. Karrick has a chance to see the colt in action. AAilliam Shields boosted Lady Rotha, winner of the first race, from ,200 to ,500, but the mare was bought in by W. II. Baker for the protecting bid. The run-up was in retaliation for the activities of the westerners in the selling races at this meeting.
