SIR BARTON AVERSETO MORNING WORK NEW YORK N Y June 14 After the running of the Bclniniit Stakes jockey Loftus in speaking of Sir Bartons victory said I got away in front but Natural Bridge had a world of speed and I took back and let him have command I intended to follow him to the homestretch but while going through the woods I changed my mind I feared that he might force me wide on the last turn and cause me to lose several lengths lengthsSo So when we emerged from the woods I gave Sir Barton his head and we ranged alongside of the leader Then I saw that Natural Bridge was doing bis tKst while Sir Barton was only cantering so 1 decided to force him along a little faster and kill him off quickly I gave Sir Barton a little more rein and he sprang forward In trying to keep up with him Natural Bridge tired quickly AVhen his quit I looked back at Sweep On lie too was doing his mightiest to keei within striking distance and I knew the race was over Entering the homestretch I took another wrap on the reins and it was simply a canter to victory victoryWilliam William Karrick trainer of Sweep On and Nat ¬ ural Bridge knew that Sir Barton refused to work well in the mornings After his two pets had lieen defeated he said That fellow wont gallop in the morning but by Jove he does a little galloping in the afternoons I wish my fellows galloped in their races like he does Sir Barton is a great horse
