NO OUTSTANDING FEATURE 1 r Tuesdays Program Given Over to Mediocre Grade of Horses. Super Beats Donnacona in Great ; Neck Handicap Jock Scots Hollow Victory. XEW YORK, X. Y., .September l::. The cheaper grade of horses held a field day at !t;lmont lark lliis afternoon. There was no feature of stake proportions, but tlie fields on hc whole were well filled and tlie track, well dried after yesterdays rains, encouraged tlie platers to show good speed. Super ran a fast utile and a sixteenth in 1:43 and to beat Dounaeoiia and Mademoiselle Ctideuu in the Jrcat Neck Handicap, which occupied the feature position on the days program. Donnacona was well fancied by the public. He sot away well and Sande rushed him into the lead. The Loft eolt drew away easily in the run down the baekstreteh and held a good advantage when Mooney made his move with Super on the turn. Mooney took the Superman eolt to the outside and closed steadily on the leader. Donnacona, Super and Mademoiselle Cadeau rounded into the stretch almost neck and neck, but Super drew away miller a mild drive in the last eighth to win by a length. Mademoiselle Cadeau tired and was three lengtlis behind Donnacona at the finish. Supers performance--"was really better than it might appear on paper. The colt got away slowly and had to race to his best form in order to overcome Donnaeonas early lead. In spite of his slow beginning he ran the distance only three-fifths of it second slower than the track record. "IV. Garths Franc Tireur graduated from the maiden class in the steepleoli.-rse. Four non-wlu-niiig jtiinpers ",started, but Masterful threw his rider after tlie second jump and Franc Tireur. Woodruff apl lerklomen were left to fight it out over the remainder of the course. Franc Tireur easily drew away from the others, but was under a drive at the finish to maintain his advantage. Ierkionien and "Woodruff battled vigorously on tlie flat after the last jump for second place, with the former victorious by a short margin. The jumping of the trio was none too good and several near spills at the obstacles kept the spactators on edge in expectation of more tumbles. LADY BALTIMORES SUCCESSFUL DEBUT. Eight two-year-old fillies of medium grade raced five-eighths of a mile over tin; straight in the third race. J. S. Cosdens Lady Baltimore was easily the best. Dolores and Emotion gave her something of an argument for the first half mile, but Lady Baltimore drew away easily into a three-lengths lead in the last eighth. Emotion was bearing out as the field came out of the chute, but she raced well whe Miller persuaded her to go straight and took the short end of the purse from Phantom Blue by a half length. Sande rode .lock Scot to a hollow victory in the fifth race, a claiming dash at one mile. Tlie old campaigner started off in front and he stayed in front all the way. Itouyhnhnni outlasted Saddle Bing for second place by a half length. A bulky field of fifteen faced the barrier in this race. The new scratch rule kept all of the entries in line and not an absentee was posted. The field was fairly well bunched behind the leader in the run down the backstretch and some roughing resulted. Joan Marie fell at the three-quarter mile post. The Bellair Handicap for fillies and mares of all ages, last on the card, developed into the best contest of the day. Arrow of Hold, hard ridden by 1once, jvore down Ten-Lee. the early pacemaker, in tlie stretch and forged to the front by a short head right at the finish. Elected II. was third. The seven that went to the post in this dash were il fractious band at the barrier. Perfection was tin worst offender. She broke through repeatedly and Ambrose, wiio had the mount on her, apparently could not control her at all. When the start finally came and it was a ragged one 1erfection was practically left. ARROW OF GOLDS SPEED WINS. Ten-Lee got away in the van and set a fast pace for the first half mile. Arrow of Gold was kept in front of the remainder of the field through the early running and responded with a good burst of speed when Ponce called upon her in the stretch run. Ten-Lee was tiring in the last eighth, but held on courageously when Arrow of Gold challenged. She had no reserve speed however, and was forced to give way before the fast closing rush of the last mentioned. The others never seriously threatened the two leaders. Atta Gal won the first nice, a two-year-old-selling affair at five ami a half furlongs, in a driving finish from Lucky Girl and Commander McMeekin. Fators well-judged ride was largely responsible for the victory of the Madden filly. Lucky Girl was well backed, Her supporters were much encouraged when MeAtee sent her into the lend noon after the start ami she set a fast pace j to the streeh. There she held on well under a vigorous ride when challenged by Atta Gal, which eatne up with a rush on the outside after extricating herself from a jam at the turn. Atta Sal. carefully saved for the final struggle by Fator, had more speed in reserve than any of the others and her fast closing rush in the final eighth brought her victory. Lucky Girl, though beaten only by a scant three-quarters of a length, was tiring fast and was under a strong drive to outlast Commander MeMeekii by a nose for second place. Six of the eighteen carded starters in the dash mercifully stayed away in spite of the new scratch rule. The field was sufficiently bulky as it was aud several unruly youngsters in the band gave the starter much trouble at the post. It was learned today that Sir Bartou, which was recently purchased by J. L Madden from J. K. L. Boys, is standing at the Moulfort Jones farm at BerryviUe. Va. J. A. Murphy has taken over the untried three-year-old bay colt Boyal Green, by Sir John John-sou Alberta Blue, for II. Levin. He will school Jui through the field for cross-countrr wins. Katie Canal fell lame in the army race Monday and probably will not race again. Jockey J. Mooney, who fell with Joan Marie in the fiftli race, suffered a cut over the right eye. Steeplechase jockey AV. Mahoncy was knocked unconscious when struck by the hoof of one of the other horses in the jumping race after Masterful had unseated him. His injuries are not serious. Masterful was fractious in the paddock before the race. Servitor, which was claimed from L. Waterbur.v on Monday by C. B. Winfrey, was excused from running in the Great Xeck Handicap without cost to his owner. The stewards decided that the new owner could not be held under the operations of the new scratch rule. The stable of Walter J. Salmon will be sent to Havre de Grace today. X. L. Byer announced yesterday that ho will send Orderly and Favour to Kingston, R. J to race at the fair meeting tiere,
