FOUR STRAIGHT FOR NEDDAM Ormondale Colt Easily Triumphs in the Babyion Handicap, t Herodias Furnishes Surprise by-Beating Thunderclap Dr. Rae Well-Backed Winner. NEAV YOBK, X. Y., September 18. Ncddam, "V. Booths good Ormondale two-year-old, scored .Ids fourlli straight victory today by winning the Baby-lon Handicap from some formidable opponents, including II. I. Whitneys Dr. Clark, recent winner of the Nursery Handicap. Ncddam was away for-wardly, set a fast pace" and, drawing away in the stretch, won by a safe margin. His victory caused several good judges to express the belief that lie would give some of the topnotchers trouble were he eligible to more two-year-old stakes. The Babylon was worth ,225 to the winner. Toto, running to his best form, won the opening race from some good sprinters. Out the Way was second and Panaman third. The second race proved a successful medium for the Garth connections when Dr. Bao, heavily backed at liberal odds, won from an ordinary band of platers. The Stockton-owned colt was backed from 12 to 1 to 5 to 1. Herodias furnished the surprise of the afternoon when she showed an improved race by beating Thunderclap in the handicap for three-year-olds at a mile. The winner was away rapidly, soon opened up a commanding lead and, though tiring badly, lasted it out. Thunderclap met with some interference and at the end was not ridden any too strongly, although he finished wearing -the winner down. He is probably at his best over a muddy track. Climatic and track conditions were again perfect and an -enthusiastic .crowd was present..-- -. L. Feustel, trainer of Man o War, the champion two-year-old of the year, will ship both Man o War and Swc?p Clean to Berlin, Md., tomorrow, where they will be wintered. C. E. Applegate .claimed Arnold Wednesday for ,800 after he had won the third race. AV. Booth will ship Neddam to Havre de Grace to run in Saturdays big stake. After Sand Beds victory on Wednesday A. P. Soeller claimed him for ,405. Quite the happiest person at the course was the mother of the diminutive Harry Swart, the fifteen-year-old youngster who guided Dr. Dae to victory. Trainer Garth delighted the boy with a 25 gift for his services. Unless otherwise instructed, jockey Iiutwcll departs tonight for Kentucky to ride Blazes in the Breeders Futurity, to be run Saturday. War Bocket, whose trials have bordered on the sensational, again disappointed in his race today. Thunderclap proved too great a handful for littly Fator and evidently requires the riding of a stronger rider to have him put forth his best effort. Herodias victory over her ox-stablemnte Thtiudcr-lap proved gratifying to trainer Karrick. Logan Denny, who deserted racing for Long Island farming two years ago, was a visitor. He expressed a determination to return to the turf next year.
