JYNTEE FIRST IN JAMAICAS MAIN RACE Wins Sandringham Handicap After Well Backed Favorite, Right Angle, Fails Dismally. NEW YORK, N. Y., October 3. Sunshine proved the potent magnet which attracted to Jamaica a banner attendance for an off day. The Sandringham, a selling handicap, was the stellar attraction of a mediocre program carded by secretary Edwards for patrons of the Metropolitan Jockey Club. Unfavorable track conditions reduced the field to four, among which Right Angle was the most favored, but proved a disappointing choice, as he quit badly after opening up a wide gap in the early racing, Jyntee, which followed tho pacemaker all the way, getting the decision after a brilliant stretch run. Osgood, outdistanced in the first part of the. race, came on the outside and made a bold bid, just failing to get up. Daydue, running in improved form, easily outstayed Right Angle at the finish. Head Over Heels accounted for the opening dash for two-year-olds, the May filly withstanding all challenges gamely, but was hard ridden fiualiy to outstay Masked Daucer. which was weakly ridden by Myers, who could hardly do the filly justice. Indiscretion was easily better than Betty J., which lacked her accustomed speed. Dandy Dude, at lucrative odds, was returned winner of the second race, scoring easily over Bar One, the favorite, and Perseus. Starter made up a world of ground after being pinched out of it at the start. The withdrawal of Woodtrap and Pictor marred interest in the third race at one and a quarter miles, leaving but three to face the starter. Sasin was established a strong favorite and took the lead at once, but was badly pressed by Monomoy at the end, and just lasted to win by the shortest of margins in a sensational finish, the result being so close that only the judges could separate tho pair. Koh-i-Noor made her opponents look cheap in the fifth, going to the front at the start and was cantering at the finish. Jack ODowd aud Hope were the runners up all the way, finishing in the order named. Eight maidens paraded to the post in the final race of the day, Georgie being an overwhelming choice, but had a close call, winning ouly after a drive with Dunsandel, which quit badly after showing dazzling speed. King Plaudit, the Brookside Stables candidate for the rich Latonia Championship Stakes, pulled up sore after his work-out this morning. Trainer George Odom announced, however, tho colt would be shipped to the Latonia track unless the soreness appeared serious. Jockey Buxton leaves this evening for Laurel, where he will have the mount ou Audacious tomorrow. W. J. Salmons stable will be shipped to Xaurel at the close of the Jamaica meeting.
