Garden City Beats Motor Cop and Other Fast Sprinters — Three Straight for Rosa Atkin. ■ TI.TIANA. Mexico. March 27— Memory which has grown dusty with time, niches in recollection which contained the valiant deeds of the thoiough-.red when they were bred to run a long distance of ground and carry weight, rather than to make the hands of the stop-watch stand still, were brushed clean of their cobwebs yesterday. The Tijuana Cup. at two miles, was the medium employed in this mental house cleaning. Shadows of the immortal Longfellow! A two-mile race, and especially an annual stake, jumps back through intervening chapters of turf history to the days of the Virginia gentlemen who bred their horses to run as long as the lane is cut out. A race twice around the course is no ordinary event for any mans race track. Although yesterday the exhaust of motor car instead of the beat of the feet of saddle horses and carriage animals was heard at the Tijuana gates as these modern equipages deposited the race fans. To the real, real old lover of a thoroughbred, and there are some to be found on every course, the distance of two miles linked up the piesent day and early raeing in America. Endurance and not speed was the courted factor as B BOtBCT large and enthusiastic throng paid hom- age to the kingly thoroughbred. The Tijuana Cup, with its value of ."..NK. was just onc-qnaiter that of the Coffroth Handicap of last Sunday, but turfdom displayed so much interest in the run- ning of Sunday "s long-route contest that fears of the thoroughbred racing being so highly commer- eialize.l and financed that raeing for tile sake of sport itself has been destroved certainlv were dis- polled. Coniing from behind, as was the manner of the earlier champions in running over a long distance of ground, that good son of Delhi — Killiecrankie. carrying the colors of the western owner Oeorge J. Miller, proved the horse of endurance and won by the snug margin of four lengths. He had not the speed of some of his rivals, but the race was not decided at the end of the first mile nor when one and one-half miles had been traveled. Kast Indian, the Samson, was the winner yesterday. Hanging on gamely to take second money-was Relario. which, with Yorkist, ran as the 0. Alexandra entry. Veteran, after a commendable race, was third. Rouen finished fourth. EAST INDIAN A BIG WINNER. A grand horse has Kast Indian been for owner Miller. This former saddle luminary has waxed sort of fat at this meeting with the Delhi gelding. for he won the Opening Handicap back in Norn vember, captured the Tijuana Business Mens Han- di.ap. scored brackets in the Baja California Han dteap and annexed the Tijuana Cup yesterday. Thus the winnings of Fast Indian in stakes and purses at this meeting total SI 4. -KM I. Nine thoroughbreds spoiled silks in the Tijuana up Sunday and it fell to the lot of Yorkist to dominate the early running. However, he fell hack and Veteran then estsayed to show the way. At the end of the first mile Veteran held a slight lead over Leata Lachaaaad, with the field well bnnehed behind these two. At one and one-half miles Vet- eran still was master of ceremonies. Rounding Ihe last turn there was a general closing up on him with Fast Indian racing under restraint. Thai little Kentucky rider. Carl Stnder. had rated his mount to perfection. The youth displayed a veter-u-i ans judgment of pace and distance. The hand of owner Miller was now making its appearance. Miller, as a rider, was a marvel when he had a mourn for a long distauce. His early day knowledge was not forgotten in his preparation of Kast Indian for this race: neither was it forgotten when he gave jockey Studer his riding orders. A thoroughbred, trained to the minute, with a surfeit of stamina, was the horse that Stmlei had under him. Consequently, when he called mi Kast Indian for an herculean effort this son of Delhi answered with a closing burst of speed which spelled defeat for all others. GARDEN CITYS METEORIC RISE. From an ,100 selling plater to a position of notice and affluence in the ranks of apt latere here Is the space bridged by Oarden City in a short space of time. Sunday he was so good that he beat Motor Cop a length, and Motor Cap carried less weight than he usually did in former appaanBcea on the border course. The race was a handicap at five and a half furlongs and it brought out the fastest hoises of the tra.k. Running right back to his brilliant race of a few days ago, when he ran the fiv-eightbs In 1:00, within a second of the track record, tJaiden City yesterday raced Motor Cop into defeat at the three-eighths post and from there on the result was never in doubt to the dis- ceraiag eye. At tke aad Oaidaa City was a length to the good, with Motor Cop holding second place. The latter hung on to best Coffiebl by a nose for third place. Motor Cap, despite his 137 ponuds. gave a laudable exhibition of gameness when he and Coffield fought it out, nod and nod. through the final sixteenth. The filly Rosa Atkin. which scored her maiden success here at better than 100 to 1. recorded her third straight victory when she outstayed Thirty Seven in the opener at five and a half furlongs These two raced as a team throughout and had the great crowd BeBdkaj up repealed cheers almost from start to finish. Jockey T. Wilson was the star of the riders Sunday, lie BCeoaWted for a third of the program. for he triumphed with Clover Junta, Zetetic and Katherine Rankin. Special trains from several points in the South west brought great delega lions. The motor high wa.is we e well filled with atttos on their way j — — .
