HULLABALOO A FAILURE r » * Whitney Colts Defeat by Excuse Me a Big Surprise. Bribed Voter Takes Measure of Midnight Sun — Three Win-j ners for Jockey Lang. BOWIE ML, April 7 —The Mount Vernon Purse, a dash of three-quarters, attracted much attention at Prince George Park today. The result of its ruuning was, however, a keen disappointment to the general public when Harry Payne Whitneys Hullabaloo was defeated by R. F. Carmans Excuse Me. with John Morrill third. Hullabaloo was installed a prohibitive choice and was supported to the exclusion of almost every other starter in the race. Dxeus"e Me. with Lang astride, was neglected by the ardent followers of the Whitney youngster. The start was a good one and Hullabaloo got away in the lead, with Excuse Me in close pursuit. Thomas found a clear opening next to the inside rail with the Whitney starter, while Excuse Me was forced to race on the outside. Entering the stretch King moved up with Excuse Me and Thomas went to the whip on Hullabaloo. Contrary to his performance the other day the latter quit badly and Exuese Me drew away into a lead, which he maintained to the end. Hullabaloo Just managed to outstay John Morrill for second place. The latter was outrun in the early stages and finished with a belated rush. Thomas and Lang again opposed each other in the running of tin- fifth race, which was a dash of a mile and a sixteenth. Thomas, on Bribed Voter, was the winner here, when he landed his mount home first by a safe margin over Mid nlajit Sun. while third place fell to Master Jack. Bodave, starting f r m an outside position, went to the ffont with a rush and was followed by Midnight Run. while Brit ed Voter was racing in third IHjsitlon. This order was maintained until rounding into the stretch, where Bribed Voter went to the outside and drew away decisively through the final sixteenth. Midnight Sun wa s tiring badly, but had tin. ugh left to withstand the rush of the fast, coming Master Jack. Rain fell in this locality last eventing, but had little effect on the track conditions. The weatuer man was in a sulking mood and clouds threatened momentarily to deluge the grounds. The row.l. despite the conditions, was of large pioportions and Witiies ed seveial exciting finishes in which the winners got up in the closing strides. The card was much better than that which was offered yesterday and produced sonic excellent sport. Kaolite backers were badly amiss, but the victory of several second choices atoned somewhat for the failure of their selection-. Kerfple S.. ridden by jot key Lang, accounted for the opening dash of the afternoon, which engaged a good band of two year old*. Jean F. was second, while High Tea finished third. Tin winner went to the front shartly after the start and never left the outcome in doubt. THE LAMB IN STIRRING FINISH. A stirring finish resulted from the ruuning of the third race. The Lamb, ridden by Jockey Scliwurtz. was returned the winner by a short head from lltra Cold, with King John third. The winner was much the best and was forced to come from the rear rounding the head of the stretch to earn the decision. The start found Reduion leading, pursued by Copyright and Iltra Gold. The latter assumed the lead after rounding the stretch turn and hung ou tenaciously under punishment, but was not good enough to withstand the rush of the winner. Lucky Girl, neglected in the speculation and ridden by jo key Thomas, was winner of the second race after ■ mild drive from Feigned leal and Bills Luck. Nightbuat loomed up in a threatening manner in the stretch, but tired as if short and finished a good fourth Jockey . Lang brought his score of victories up to three when he guided Nutcracker home in the wiuuing of the final dash of the day. Nutcracker was the popular choice and drew confident support. In went to the front soon after the start, but was ridden out in the final eighth to maintain his advautuge The latter was a forward contender throughout, while Amaze finished with ■ rush and jutt got up to take the short end of the purse Nutcracker pulled up lame following the race, while Shoot On broke down during the running.
