March 3. The long-awaited speed of the Tijuana track developed yesterday, r the course being in such fine condition that Sunny- v, land, from the Bronx Stable, la winning the alter- t noons feature of five and a half furlongs, hung up I the time of 1:06-... It Was the fastest of the meet- n ing and many look for new track marks to be t displayed ere the sport is concluded at the border f course. o The victory of Sunnyland was in the nature of a • .surprise, for he matched speed with the best sprinters at the track and downed such good ones v as Sam Reh and Motor Cop. It was not believed ■ so that Sunnyland. the seven -year-old Mill of Sunflower v II., would show at his best at a sprinting ristance. i it for he always has been known to like a long route. However, trainer Harry Inna had him I on keen edge and his speed was dazzling. Jockej I K. Fator kept hiin under restraint the first part t and when he called on him he forged to the front I with long strides and beat Sam Iteh a length in easy fashion. Sam l!eh fought gamely to withstand the rush of Sunnyland. but was not equal to e the lak. r Motor Cop, which carried the heavy impost of 140 iK unds. appeared dull and was unable to open any great distance on his opponents He finished third, beaten off five lengths by the f winner. It was Sunny-lands first victory of the meeting and he was rather neglected in the bet- ting. With War iod he appeared as the Bronx entry, and when accounts were balanced the entry paid 1060 to 1. The C. B. Irwin entry of Motor Cop and Sedan was made the odds-on favorite ■ at 3 to o. It was War Cods first appearance at the meeting. The son of Incle showed a little speed in the early pari of the race, but he !i evidently is in need of more racing. I The southern California sun appeared at its best yesterday and there was quite a temptation to seek the shade of the grandstand. The sprinters furnished the chief attraction, there being only two longer-distance races, these being the seventh. # at one and one-sixteenth miles, and the eighth. I at one mile and seventy yards. The western horseman J. A. Parson scored a t double with Sister Susie and Hooneville. In the sixth nice, at five-eighths. Sister Susie was ac- j corded such hearty support that she was a 2 to •"• t shot iu the machines. She won in a manner ex- i pec-ted of such a short-priced runner, for she made all the pace and held her opposition safe all the • way. Jockey Huntamer had the mount. Ha Maulsby moved up steadily and outgataied Phrone f Ward for the second place. The other Parson victory was in the last event, at one mile and seventy yards. Yermak was given the greatest support and was made the favorite. However, Yermak was never better than fourth at any part of it. and was in that position at the ; end. Booneville, which is a slow beginner, moved J up gradually and jockey Fator saved a lot of ground by keeping him close to the inside rail. At . the stretch tt:ru he overcame the leaders, a. six-tec-nth out, and wou with ■peed in reserve. Weill- j land, which raced forwardly all the way, took second place and Earlymoin captured the coiisola- j tion end of the purse. The opening dash was for maiden two-year-olds and the odds-on choice. Faber. an Atheling II. geld- j ing from the Stokes ft Muir stable, rewarded his , backers by winning in easy fashion. The Allen and | Wilkerson entry of Dick Terpin and Miss Kdna , finished second and third. The riding of jockey M. Fator, the younger brother of Iivergne and Elmer Fator. attracted some attention. The youth had two wiuuers in Just Right and Booneville. and in riding them displayed considerable natural ability and coufirteuce. Among the arrivals were Mr. and Mrs. O. K. Desmond of Chicago. Desmond is a well-known contractor, and with Mrs. Desmond will be here until the end of the meeting. Jockey McKvan was suspended for five day -for rough riding on Little .Like, which finished third in the third nice. «
