JAMAICA CARD IS RIDDLED Sickness Results in Many Withdrawals Montauk Stakes to Dot NEW YORK N T May 9 With so much sickness among the horses the card at Ja ¬ maica today was badly cut up by scratches and it was only in a race for cheap sell ¬ ing platers that there was a field of any proportions The Montauk Selling Stakes a five and a half furlong dash for the two yearolds only saw three under colors and it went to Jake Byers Dot a daughter of Tagliamento and Dorigen Sam H Karris True Flier winner of the Suffolk the open ¬ ing day raced into second place and William Daniels Blanc Seing was third thirdDot Dot never left the result in doubt when L Fator sent her away flying from the post Blanc Seing was in second place while True Flier was not so alert although all three of them were well lapped at the time flag Through the early stages McAtee was content to keep Blanc Seing within striking distance of the filly but at the threeeighths post when he moved up she was not ready to give up the command and in the mean ¬ time Marinelli had circled around on the outside of the pair with the Harris filly Making the turn home Fator hit Dot once with the whip and she jumped away prompt ¬ ly and the race was as good as over At the end she was three lengths clear and drawing away True Flier outfinished Blanc Seing but was doing her best at the end endBEES BEES WAX DEFEATS COLUMN COLUMNLittle Little Chiefs absence from the Ansonia Handicap left only three to go Bees Wax Column and Johnny Dundee and they fin ¬ ished in the order named Column caued considerable delay at the post by reason ot his unruly actions but the start was good and he was away well in his stride The track cupped out slightly under Bees Wax as she started but she was quickly in her stride and McAtee took him right after the Schwartz sprinter going to the outside of him Once alongside McAtee was content to rate the filly along Making the turn for home Column bore out badly carrying Bees Wax with him but McAtee made no effort to come clear and he soon had Rice at a drive on Column It was of no avail and at the end Bees Wax drew out to win by a length and a half Johnny Dundee was always a distant follower followerLast Last Straw from the stable of George D Widener was winner of the opening dash rather easily from the Marrone Stables Whisk with E Sietas Elected II saving third money from the Vulcain Stables Mer ¬ cury curySande Sande made his move on Last Straw three eighths from home and she readily gained on Elected II and after making the turn into the stretch took command In the meantime Mercury had circled around on the outside while Whisk was coming fast on the inside At the eighth post Whisk came around Elect ¬ ed II and as he did Moore swerved him so sharply in front of the Sietas mare that she was in decidedly close quarters quartersThirteen Thirteen cheap platers made up the field for the mile and a sixteenth the second of ¬ fering and it brought one of the best fin ¬ ishes of the day when the result was in doubt until well inside the last eighth The winner turned up in J L Coyles Horeb with Mrs P J Lavins Copyright second and Armistice a good third while
