HANOVER TO YELLOW HAND Worthy Winner After Smashing and Hard Race Throughout Lord Brighton in Close Call Old OldRockport Rockport Confirmed Rascal RascalFurnishes Furnishes a Surprise NEW YORK N Y June 20 C A Stonehams English yellow Roscndale gelding he Is light bay in color though named after his dam Yellow Sea by Martgaron ran a smashing race at Aqueduct this afternoon Mr Stoneham gave a good price for him late last year He had run three gooa races out of four on Metropolitan courses and In the best handicap company this spring Yellow Hand was in the Hanover Handicap at one and a sixteenth miles with ten more or which sir re ¬ tired leaving him to contend with Sennings Park Dr Clark Veto and Snare Speculative wisdom counted Yellow Hand and Dr Clark out and divided on backing Sennings Park and Veto VetoThe The race was a smasher with Yellow Hand the worthy winner He had to race hard throughout First Dr Clark the Whitney colt and Snare Then Sennings Park the favorite was at him Once settled for the long stretch run Snare was done and Veto tried but couldnt get up The pace was too fast the quarter in 24 half in 47 and five eighths in 100 for Veto VetoSoon Soon Dr Clark was done seveneighths suits him best nowadays and Sennings Park under Sande and Yellow Hand under Miller were left to fight out a long finish in which Yellow Hand got even nnar stontly driven drew away inch by inch before the stand to win only hard hand ridden by a neck The best horse won Both were well served The threequarters was in 112 the mile in 137 and the race in 144 but onefifth of a second behind the track record of 143 made by On Watch under the same weight last September when the Colin colt was at his best The Hanover was a nice piece of racing racingDIMMESDALE DIMMESDALE FALSE FAVORITE FAVORITEThe The opening race of the afternoon at three quarters of a mile under conditional weights fell to Lord Brighton S C Hildreths sprinter He was only second choice a clubhouse party forced R T Wilsons Dimmesdale into favoritism Near post time Dimmesdale stuck his toes In the track and wouldnt leave with the horses when the bar ¬ rier went up Ho hns offended in this way before Sande got Lord Brighton away slowly He never seemed to get to racing until nearly the eighth post There he was hemmed in with Curfew Merchant Marine and Hobey Baker racing it out in front Luck aided Sande He slipped the coming Lord Brighton through a hole in the field at St Michaels left and under a powerful finish got him up to beat Curfew a head in the last three or four strides Genie W was third Curfew was a long long shot Genie W ran a good race Hobey Baker not quite ready will be made so by the race raceRight Right after this Father Bill Dalys Rockport seven years old and a confirmed rascal gave turf wisdom a facer He won one race last year on Marlboros canine pastures In 1919 he offended four times in other lands such as Cuba In all Rockport has run seventyseven races in the last four years and won eight of them in groups of bis own kind He was in the fifth race a claimer at eight and a half furlongs for 500 which meant 94 pounds The ambitious E Kummer Clarences brother and Sandy McLaughlins pupil was on his back Old Rockport is well bred enough but his past was present is and future will be murky Opposed to him were Dorcas Sande Salute War Plume and La Kross Naturally he was the rank outsider Mr Daly put blinkers on the old villain and some misguided folks caught the idea and backed him from 50 to 30 to 1 Dorcas was almost in the prohibitive class The uncertainty of rac ¬ ing and Sandes error gave Rockport the race raceHe He ran well and Kid Rummers eager deeirp to win aided him after Rockport had been in the fray to below the eighth post Sande brought up Dorcas headed him and considering that point settled took hold of Dorcas for an easy hand rid ¬ ing victory over Salute on the outside Master Kummer and Rockport came again youth ambi ¬ tion age and perservance must be served and while Sande was watching Salute on the outside Rockport hard driven came through next to the rails and before Dorcas could be again driven to her best she isnt a well of courage herself Rock ports nose was past the post in front of Dorcas with Salute nearly a length behind them themThus Thus came Rockports seventyseventh race and eighth victory He is a tough old bird and will be likely to do it again when feeling good and speculation attracts him himTATTLE TATTLE AGAIN IN STEEPLECHASE STEEPLECHASEThe The short course steeplechase fell to Tattle after a rather good looking finish with Fair Mac and War Victor Tattle was supported and ran far better than of late Fair Mac the favorite should have won Tattles tider J Rowan crossed and hampered him three or four times in the last three eighths eighthsTwelve Twelve twoyearolds contested in the third race at fiveeighths out of the elbow chute under sell ¬ ing price weights Max Hirschs overdue Dick Deadeye the
