DUNBOYNE IN GRAND FORM Scores His Third Straight Victory in Arverne Handicap. Carries 130 Pounds and Displays Great Speed Disqualification in Third Race. . 1 f - i NEW YORK. N. Y.. September 26. S. C. Hil-dreths fine old Celt horse, Dunboyne, toyed with his opponents and won the Arverne Handicap ca- ily at Aqueduct today. Dry Moon was second, and Diramesdale third, while the Redstone Stnblc6 Gladiator, backed into favoritism, finished a thoroughly beaten Jast. Dry Moon got away in front, but Dimmesdale quickly replaced him, while Dunboyne kept in close pursuit. The Stoneham starter then dropped back to last. Dunboyne, .held under a slight pull by Sande until the stretch turn, and after having raced Dimmesdale into defeat on the straight, was under restraint through the last eighth. Dry Moon meantime came again under a hard drive, tackled Dimmesdale in the stretch, and jumped ahead of tli Wilson colt by a nose in the final stride, The battle for second place was the most thrilling feature of the race. By the time Dunboyne entered the last eighth he had the race won, but second place still remained an open affair, with Dimmesdale apparently holding the edge. Millers persistence with the Stoneham colt found its. reward, however, and he was awarded second money. The race marked the third victory in a row for Dunboyne since, Ids return to the track. Todays crowd practically forgot that the Hildreth starter was in the racei So neglected was lie by the-lawn-sters, who centered with great unanimity on Gladiator, that his price rose steadily until wagering closed. In the race he demonstrated so conclusively his. superiority to the others under his top impost of 130 pounds that bis few supporters had little to worry about after the field reached tbe stretch. He covered the three-quarters of a mile most of it under restraint in 1:12, a second slower than tb track record. The race paid ,225 to the winner. JYKTEE WINS IN HOT FINISH. Jyntee, ably ridden by Fator, took the first race, at six and a half furlongs, by a short head from Vista, with Mavourneen third. Jyntee quickly assumed the lead and maintained her advantage all the way, although she was under a hard ride at the finish to withstand Vistas challenge. Mavourneen reared when the barrier was sprung and although she made up a good lot. of ground and easily outrun all but Vista and Jyntee she did not offer any serious opposition to the leaders. Rice was forced to take her to the outside at the turn into the stretch after he had failed to get through next to the inside rail. Turnabout, the winners full sister, in contrast with her showing when the pair met at Saratoga, did not enter seriously into contention at any time. She finished a badly beaten last. Hallavill, three-year-old son of Berrilldon Vill-halla, did great credit to his excellent jumping ancestor by carrying the J. S. Cosden silks to victory in the steeplechase, which marked his first appearance under colors. His stable companion Gimme apparently had second place at his mercy when he stumbled slightly at the last jump and was led home by Sobrigade. Woodruff, the only other starter, broke down and was pulled up at the fifth jump. Simpatica, uuder an excellent ride by Fator, won the third race, for two-year-olds, at three-quarters mile. Sweepy, which finished second by a head, was disqualified. Second money was awarded to Arendor, which finished third, and third money to Delhi Maid. Wilson, who had the mount on Sweepy, tried to pass Last Girl at the quarter-mile post, but failed to get through and then went to the outside. Coming up even with Last Girl, Sweepy swerved against her repeatedly, knocking her completely out of contention. Sweepy then drew abreast with Simpatica and raced with her head and head to th finish. The stewards did not await a claim of foul, but disqualified Sweepy immediattly. MISHAP SPOILS BRTTMADOS CHANCES. Max Hirschs Sunnyland had an easy time win ning the Ballot Handicap, at a mile and a sixteenth, from Rgal Lodge and Brumado. He drew away from the others in the stretch to win under restraint by a margin of three lengths. Brumado, which was a good winner in France, has been showing excellent speed in work-outs, and was well backed. He might have been a more formidable opponent to the winner if he had not lost a stirrup at the furlong post, ruining whatever chances he may have had. Another fine day brought out one of the largest midweek crowds of the meeting. The track was in excellent condition and the lawnsters were active. The public suffered in the failure of several well-backed favorites. William Garth will send a division of the J. S. r Cosden stable and some of his own horses to Havana . for winter racing. The contingent will be in charge of Woods Garth. I Woodruff was destroyed following his break-, down in the steeplechase. D. J. Kahn claimed Pansy out of the first race for ,205. J. E. Madden claimed Simpatica, the winner of the third race, for ,600. Jockey F. Wilson was suspended for three days by the stewards for crossing in front of Last Girl with Sweepy in the third race. Jockey E. Fator, under contract to S. Polk, Tis-i ited his brother. Laverne Fator, at Aqueduct today. He is on his way from Canada to Havre de Grace to join his contract employer. He left for the Maryland track tonight.
