I FORMFUL TIJUANA RACING I Six Favorites and Two Second Choices Sue- ! cessful at Mexican Track Tuesday. TI.TPANA. Mexico. March 22. — Six favorites and two second This is the count of the form- ! ful raring register* at the harder eearse yesterday. The talent i rofited handsomely, enjoyed a glorious outing, for the bright sun was beating down and there was nothing to mar the a f ternoons sport. The attendance n:easured up well with that for any Tuesday of the meeting. As is the case when the favorites catch the judges eve. the layers were given a severe drubbing and the books snlteied a landslide defeat. Beginning with the first race, a dash of half a mile for two-year-olds, the layers had little rest and bankrolls were shrinking throughout the afternoon. The feature of the day was the victory scored by Itelano in the fifth race at one mile and an eighth. The field was a small one. but it was somewhat select. It marked the first success of Belario since he was shipped here from Maryland. Racing in the colors of G. Alexandra, the piaint English turfman whose stable is jewel-like in consistency. Helario really made a show of his opponents. The chart shows that the son of Sain winning by three-ipiarters of length, but truth to tell he could have won by a much wider margin had his rider elected. Gath was backed to win the race as if it were all over but the shouting. However, the stable connections of P.elario supported him stanehly and he ruled I second choice. As for the race Nan McKinney splinted into the lead and threatened to spreadeagle the others. To a discerning eye it was apparent that Belario was being reserved. This proved to be the case, for when jockey Donahue let out a wrap the horse passed Nan McKinney easily and from there on Donahue was busily engaged in not showing the Saras up. The real contest was for second place in which Flair a, Gath and Nan McKinney engaged. Piedra. coining from the rear, proved the gamer and beat Gath a neck, while the latter took the small end of the purse by inches from the tiring Nan McKinney. The favorite. Faber. another by Alluding II.. was another winner for this rising sire by annexing brackets in the opening dash at a half mile. It was a horse race between the t wo-vear-nlds Fab-r and Miss Edna. They outran the others and at the end Paher drew away to win by open daylight. Pat Hampson was third by a narrow margin over Nancy Winet and the non-staying Babe Ruth. The three-year-old Meteor, despite being ridden by the heretofore maiden jockey W. Davis, was backed with rare confidence in the second race at three-quarters of a mile. Those in charge of the horse tried to make a last minute switch to jockey Huntamer. but the stewards fiowned on the request. As it happened the youthful gelding scored. Davis and all. The winner had nothing to brag of. for his victory was only by a nose. It was a rousing finish in which Alazon and Candorosa figured. Sir John Yergiie finally found a soft spot in the seventh at one mile and seventy yards and. with jockey Tnonipson astride, made every post a winning one. He was one of the six favorites to score during the afternoon. A fast start enabled Trusty to earn brackets in the concluding dash at three-quarters of a mile. This was another favorite, but a lukewarm one. as Little Beach was also well supported. Trustys win was the easiest of the day. his margin beiug three lengths. Trainer Lee Erh has resigned from the stable of Shafer and onway. Hie resignation is effective April 1. During the time he was associated with ilii striag his work was highly effective and he made the Shafer and Conway banes figure conspicuously among the leading winners. Erb intends making a visit to his Basse in Kansas City and then going to Kentucky, a Bell he will again engage in his chosen vocation of preparing horses for the races. Al Neal reported that his mare Laurel, dam of Jake Schas. is exported to foal within the next few says.
