TEN LEC WINS HARTSDALE Celt Filly Displays High Quality in Empire City Stake Feature. Jockey Sande No Longer with Ross Stable Even Break for the Favorites. - i NEW YORK, N. Y., October 18 Ten-Lec, carrying 121 pounds, easily" won the Hartsdale Handicap, feature of. the program at Empire City today. The Celt Network filly showed she is about the best youngster of, her sex. and age which has shown around Metropolitan tracks during the fall session of racing and probably is as good right now as any two-year:old filly which has raced- this year, not barring Prudery or Careful. While Ten-Lec was only opposed today by Pluribus, which only had up 114 pounds, and Vry Moon, an added starter, with the same weight, she toyed with these two and ran Uie five and a half furlongs over a track heavy near the inside rail in 1:00. Off slowly, she soon was in her stride and took the lead, increasing it at every post until at the end she had a margin of five lengths over Pluribus. The talent broke about even on the day, three favorites, getting to the winning line first in Captain Alcock, Ten-Lec and Segurola. There were no close finishes in these races, the favorites being returned without much effort. Lord Herberts defeat in the fifth race was a keen disappointment, as he was warmly supported. Jockey . Rich creek was partly to blame, as he. permitted Kummer, on Beaumarais, to cut him off every time" Jie"1dttempted to come through. When Lord Herbert finally managed: to get clear he gained rapidly, but too late to be of any avail, as. War Plume and The Wit had too much of a lead. Jockey Earl Sande has severed his connections with Commander J. K. L. Ross stable and will be riding free lance at Empire City. Sande appeared in the colors of C. K. Moore on Berllh in the opening dash and won with him. Sande says he was given his contract by Commander Ross last Saturday. He claims he was promised his release when Kepgh was substituted for liim on Sir Barton in the race between Man o War and the Ross representative-, at Kenilworth. J. W. McClelland returned from Saratoga, where he sojourned Sunday with jockey Schuttinger to put twenty-five yearlings, which were broken by Charles Hughes, through their first racing lessons. He says they all showed well In their first trials. The Xalapa Farm yearlings will be wintered at Havre de Grace. Mr. McClelland says he will take up Eternal at once and put him in training for next year. Edward Arlington has presented the Remount Association with Questionnaire, by Zeus Frances. W. P.
