RUNANTELL AGAIN VICTOR Defeats Galantman and Kai-Sang in the Ardsley Handicap. Ten-Lec Best in Fashion Handicap Native Land Wins Impressively. -Cm--t.,3 NEW YORK, N. Y., October 27. J. E. Wideners Runantell, son of Broomstick Zoola, demonstrated his quality once more by winning the Ardsley Handicap at Empire City today. L. Waterburys Galantman finished in second place and Kai-Sang, carrying top impost and heavily supported, was third. Runantell carried 11$ pounds today as compared with his impost of 110 pounds when he defeated Kai-Sang in the Hartsdale Handicap last week. Kai-Sang carried 130 pounds In both races. The difference in weight allowance seemed to make little difference in the running. Galantman was the quickest to get started and set a fast early pace. However, he was soon passed by Runantell, which came up at the stretch turn and took the lead. Runantell then swerved over to the inner rail and Miller was forced to pull up slightly to avoid a collision. He tired slightly iu the final sixteenth and was under a drive at the end to hold his advantage. Galantman came again when the leader showed signs of distress and made a game effort to overtake him, but without success. He had no trouble in holding second place from Kai-Sang, although the latter closed up fast in the stretch and was gaining steadily on the leaders. Kai-Sang appeared to stumble shortly after tku start after getting away well. He dropped out ot coutentlon in the racing down the back stretch and a rare burst of speed was necessary to bring him into the money. The result of yesterdays race seems to indicate that Runantell is a colt of much quality. He was conceding six pounds to Galantman and received only twelve pounds advantage over Kai-Sang, which has been generally considered as second only to Morvich in the two-year-old division. Comfortably warm weather attracted a larger crowd than has visited the Yonkers course in several days. The racing, except for the stake feature, was of a rather low quality, with the cheaper grade of horses taking part. SAGACITY DEFEATS CROHWELL. Slaughter hugged the rail with Sagacity, the outsider in the first race, and, slipping through at the stretch turn, wore down Cromwell and won by a safe margin. Dark Hill was third. Sammy Jay ruled as favorite, but he tired after making his move on the turn and was not a contender in the stretch racing. Cromwell displayed fine speed iu the early part of the race. He rushed into the lend going to the first turn and withstood a challenge from Dark Hill on the lower turn. He tired in the run through the stretch, however, and gave way to Sagacity. Scottish Chief moved up on the lower turn, raced Morning Face into defeat and won the second race with case. W. H. Buekner was humped by Scottish Chief in the run down the backstretch and Ambrose claimed a foul on returning to the judges stand. The claim was disallowed by the stewards after prolonged discussion. AV. H. Buekner recovered from the interference and moved up in the stretch to take second place. Queen Blonde took third money. Morning Face quit when challenged and finished fifth. While the stewards were discussing Ambroses claim of foul, the spectators grew restless and began to gather in front of the judges stand, shouting and clappiug their hands. Scottish Chief was a slight favorite, but heavy hacking for W. H. Buekner brought him into u position of a strong second choice at post time. The Foreign Stable continued its winning streak by scoring with Ten-Lec in the third race. The Celt filly was ridden out to withstand the rush of Arrow of Gold, which kept in closest pursuit most of the way. Lady Gertrude was third and Elected II. was once more a distant follower. Ponce began to move up on the leader with Arrow of Gold on the turn. The Peter Quince filly was gaining throughout the stretch, but she. tired slightly near the end and Ten-Lec, under Severn pressure, came to the finish with a winning margin just short of a length. TITANIUM IN TIGHT FINISH. Titanium lasted long enough to win the fifth race at a mile and a sixteenth from Challenger, with Rockport third. Fator sent the Radium gelding to the front going to the first turn and raced down the backstretch, with Ailliro closest in pursuit. The latter quit when Challenger moved up on the loAver turn and from that point it was really a two-horse race. Challenger closed gamely in the stretch, gaining on Titanium at every stride and if the race had been a few yards longer would have won. Rockport came up on the outside with a burst of speed and disposed of the remainder ot the field for third money. Fator completed a double with the odds-on choice. Native Land, in the last race. The Friar Rock filly outclassed the remainder of the field, took the lead in the first eighth arid drew away easily to win all by herself. Confusion was second and Anna M. third. McAtce took part iu another runaway just before this race. Exterminate, half-sister to Exterminator, ran away, three-quarters of a mile before the start. McA.ee pulled her so hard iu his efforts to stop her flight that the saddle girth became loosened. The filly was given a. lound ot ironical cheers as she sped past the stand.
