CALAMITY JANES TR1U1PI1 Carries H P Whitney Silks to Victory in Spring Handicap Frigate Beats Ralco and Tan ¬ gerine in Spirited Finish Oceanic Out of Preakness NEW YORK N T May 10 When James Rowe the elder makes the trip all the way from Brookdale Farm to New York to sad ¬ dle one horse the horse is usually well worth saddling Rowe came from the farm to Jamaica today to saddle Calamity Jane in the running of the Spring Handicap and she was an impressive winner It was the first start of the year for the daughter of Pennant and Mrs Trubble and the manner of her victory suggests that she will cut an important figure among those of her age and sex during the year yearSweep Sweep By Bud Fisher and So It Goes failed to answer to the call for the Spring Handicap but Toil from the Morton L Schwartz stable was added leaving six to try for the prize Speculation was divided among Calamity Jane Modo and William A while it was generally agreed that the others of the company had less chance chanceIt It was a good start and Penman moved to the front with Calamity Jane while Toil raced at her tail and two lengths back of him Modo was outrunning the others and saving ground on the inside Calamity Jane made the pace a stiff one when she went to the quarter in 23 and then to the half in 46 This kept Toil exceedingly busy and while he hung on to second place with gameness he began to tire as he swung for home Modo held to his inside rail position but when straightened out for the run home McAtee had to pull him out slightly to reach Toil At the end Calamity Jane was a couple of lengths clear and going easily while Modo was along in time to beat the tiring Toil half a length for second place placeIfEEDS IfEEDS A LOGGER DISTANCE DISTANCEWilliam William A is a particularly longstriding colt and he was utterly unable to keep up with the early fast pace but through the stretch he was finishing in resolute fashion and he had made up considerable ground to be fourth beaten only a length and a half by Toil ToilNative Native Land was forced to race a bit wide in the early stages and when she was well beaten in the stretch she was eased up by Marinelli and pulled up last Black Rascal showed none of the speed that was his last year and there was no stage of the running that he cut any figure figureA A good finish came out of the running of the mile and seventy yards of the Savoy Handicap although there were only three starters H M Howards Frigate was win ¬ ner with H S Bowns Ralco second and Richard T Wilsons Tangerine third thirdSande Sande who had the mount on Ralco beat the other two away from the post and he made every use of that advantage when he sent the black horse into a good lead going around the first turn Clarence Kummer was hustling Frigate after him while Marinelli lost some ground on the turn and he was permitting the threeyearold to settle into his stride before asking him to run Through the backstretch Frigate drew up close to Ralco and they both sprinted away from Tangerine until he appeared to be hopelessly out of it though he was galloping fast Threeeighths from the end Ralco and Fri ¬ gate were well lapped with Frigate on the outside Tangerine had begun to run there and he was making up ground in gallant fashion fashionMARINELUS MARINELUS FATAL MISTAKE MISTAKEAt At the head of the stretch Sande drew his whip in an effort to hold the lead with Ralco but Frigate hung right to him Marinelli had come up with Tangerine until he seemed to have a royal winning chance Then Marinelli made the fatal mistake of running into a pocket though there were only the two horses in front of him This blocking probably cost the son of Olambala the race for at the end Frigate was the winner by less than a length and Ralco only beat Tan ¬ gerine a head for second place placeSelby Selby Burch made no mistake when he claimed Sea Mint recently He started the son of Sea King and Mintless in the mile and a sixteenth that was the fifth offering and he was the easiest winner of the after ¬ noon It was the first score for the silks of that young turfman Sande took the lead with Sea Mint from the start and he was good enough to show the way from end to end Through the last eighth Sande had him under stiff restraint and he was romp ¬ ing along Avith his ear pricking At the end he was two lengths to the good There was a lively battle for the place when A S Woodcliffes Episode was just up in the clos ¬ ing strides to beat home Anniversary with Carnarvon fourth and Keliher last all the way Carnarvon was making his first start under the silks of Frederick Johnson and after chasing Sea Mint to the stretch tired badly in the run home homeTho Tho last hope of sending the Glen Riddle threeyearold Oceanic to Pimlico for the Prealoiess disappeared when it was reported today that he had developed a fever of 102 degrees It was hoped Tuesday that his coughing might be checked and that he would be able to start but with the fever it is now impossible to bring him to the post postSandy Sandy McNaughton reported that Mrs Louise Viaus Firm Friend was still suffering from the kick he received from Letterman the last time he started and that it elimi ¬ nated his only chance for the Preakness PreaknessPreston Preston M Burch says all of the horses of the Nevada Stock Farm are ailing but none is seriously ill He further stated that Blue Hawk had been priced at 25000 but that at this time he did not know that he would take that price for the son of Atheling II Chocolate Lady LadyJefferson Jefferson Livingston was a visitor at Ja ¬
