OLYMPIC FAST RUN RACE Edgar Allan Poe Beats Gladiator Gladiatorin in Great Display of Speed Speedi i Jamaica Field Reduced by Many ManyWithdrawals Withdrawals Bo McMillan McMillanDefeat Defeat a Surprise NEW YORK N Y May 11 Frequently equipment makes a marvelous difference in performances of horses and that fact was brought home in the running of the Olympic Selling Stakes at Jamaica today Edgar Allan Poe from the Rancocas Stable was an easy winner from Mrs Louise Viaus Gladiator Glen Riddle Farms Dream of the Valley and some other really good sprint ¬ ers This is the same Edgar Allan Poe which was well beaten a few days back by James Butlers East View and Richard T Wilsons Tangerine But when he was beaten he wore no blinkers and for the Olympic Hildreth declared that he would add the rouges badge and it brought most satisfying re ¬ sults The Olympic was over the three quarters distance and Edgar Allan Poe was so much the best with the help of the blink ¬ ers that he made a show of his company He appeared a trifle sore going to the post but Sande let him gallop over there briskly and there was surely no evidence of soreness when he began to run runDashing Dashing into a good early lead Sande when well clear took hold of the son of Mc Gee and rated him along at a pace that al ¬ ways kept him well clear of as fast a horse as Dream of the Valley while Gladiator was racing along in third place on the inside The others were soon well strung out and there was no time in the running they cut any figure figureSwinging Swinging for home Sande was looking back and he had both Dream of the Valley and Gladiator driving hard in an effort to catch him But Edgar Allan Poe had taken all the run out of them and he was four lengths clear at the finish having run the threequarters in 1 just twofifths of a second slower than the track record recordGladiator Gladiator fought it out with Dream of the Valley in the last eighth to take second place rather easily and Brainstorm after having been pinched off at the start closed a considerable gap to be fourth fourthCARD CARD MARRED BY SCRATCHES SCRATCHESWith With the exception of the Olympic the racing at Jamaica was rather tame by rea ¬ son of the scratches Nine stayed away from tho Olympic but it still left seven to race while the other scratches worked a greater havoc When Wynnewood was excused from the third race by reason of injury and Sea Covo and Henry G were both scratched there were only two left to race And when Zev developed a cough it reduced another race to a field of three threeThe The weather was summerlike and a good breeze blew in from Jamaica Bay making it decidedly pleasant for another large crowd that was out for the sport sportA A real surprise came out of the running of the fiveeighths of the second race on the program when Duster from the Orleans Stable and saddled by Albert Simons beat the Max Hirsch pair Bo McMillan and Nas Bau the only other starters It was in this race that Hildreth had intended starting Zev but he contracted a cough while coming over from Belmont Park by van vanMax Max Hirsch had declared to win with Bo McMillan and his one winning race made him appear best though Duster had raced fairly well at New Orleans and was well seasoned by actual racing As the race was run there was excellent excuse for the Hirsch pair At the start Bo McMillan jumped in the air and while he quickly found his stride it afforded Duster an opportunity to go into a good lead The filly was a couple of lengths clear but the Hirsch pair closely lapped were racing gamely and fast next to the inside rail Then on the turn out of the backstretch Parke came over sharply with Duster and both Bo McMillan and Nassau had to be taken up This move decided tho race right there for while Bo McMillan raced well under a drive he could not make up the ground that had been lost turning out of the backstretch and was beaten rather more than two lengtlis while his stablemate was about the same distance farther back backHENRY HENRY G ALL THE WAY WAYHenry Henry G racing for H Walser was good enough to lead all the way and beat a cheap band in the opening mile and a six ¬ teenth race for selling platers George Pe ¬ tersons Lady Zeus finished in second place and William Farnums Rustler closed an immense gap to be third thirdThere There was some delay at the post for Continued on cterentti pace OLYMPIC PAST RUN BAGS Continued from first page which Lady Zeus and Rustler were chiefly to blame Then when the barrier rose Rustler propped badly and was almost left Lancaster at once raced Into a good lead with Henry G and rating him along well clear of his opponents there wan no stage of the running that he was threatened i iWelcome Welcome Stranger and Nlghtboat each other to pieces chasing the Ic in the stretch Lady Zeus closed under a hard drive to land Rustler was taken around the last eighth to finish th boat had quit badly badlyThe The mile and a sixteenth C third offering practically narr to a match race between W R C Harum and W C Clancys Crys after Wynnewood Sea Cove and 1 had been withdrawn The race was c Fords all the way though It was npj that McCoy who had the mount on Harum was not strong enough to do i full justice justiceThe The Byer family has been having a full measure of success and there waa another purse taken down in the mile and a six ¬ teenth of the fifth race when Orderly set the pace from end to end to beat J A Co burns Sammy Kelly J W FleischmannB Search Light III and three others othersIt It was a good start but Orderly was first to come clear and little B Fator hustled him along to such good effect that he never surrendered the command He saved ground all the way and Search Light HI waa so used up chasing him that at the end he tired so badly that Sammy Kelly beat him homo for second place placeJockey Jockey H Thomas will leave for Pimllco Friday night to ride the Greentree Stables Galantman in the
