SENNINGS PARKS TRIUMPH Wins Excelsior Handicap and Establishes New Track Record Colorado Uncovers Another Crack CrackTwoYearOld TwoYearOld in Speedy SpeedyGreat Great Man NEW YORK N T May 13 While Scott Jlarlan was down at Pimlico saddling Pirate Gold and Galantman for the Freakness ne turned over Sennings Park one that he trains for the Wcstmont stable to A J Joyner for his effort in the Excelsior handicap at Ja ¬ maica Then Sennings Park went out and hung a new track record of 144 to win the mile and a sixteenth feature featureDoubtless Doubtless attendance records were broken at both Churchill Downs and Pimlico but at the same time there was an attendance record at the course of the Metropolitan Jockey Club and the brand of sport was first class though the Colorado tho twoyearold feature was marred by the withdrawal of three of the overnight acceptances leaving three to go goOnly Only four went to the post in the Excel ¬ sior but it proved a good horse race all the way Damask tho Whitney starter was rushed to the front from the start and ne waa showing the way by a good margin for tho first fiveeighths Sennings Park was right after him and wl en he tired Fiilr brother took up the running with him to stick It out resolutely to win by a length nnd a half from the Rancocas stables Mad Hatter while C A Stonehams Yellow Hand was cased up In third piace and well before the tired Damask DamaskWhile While Damask was setting the pace with Sennings Park racing outside of him Sande had Mad Hatter on the inside and waited with him until the backstretch was reached Then he moved up quickly but ran Into a pocket formed by Sennings Park overlapping Damask at the halfmile ground This was a slight disappointment and he eased back to move later outside of the tiring Damask DamaskBAKDE BAKDE USES ALL HIS SKILL SKILLIn In the meantime Fairbrother had Sennings Park well clear and he was racing strongly Yellow Hand had made a bid but could not materially improve his position Through the stretch Sando rode Mad Hatter with hand and heel and fairly lifted him along but it was all to no avail when Sennings Park never faltered to be home a good win j nor Right at tho end Taplin eased Yellow Hand when further effort for even second place was useless The pace was fast all the way the quarter teing run in 25 the half in 48 the threequarters 112 and the mile In 138 138Another Another fast twoyearold was uncovered In the running of the Colorado tho five eighths juvenile feature when Great Man from the Riviera stable was an easy winner after running the distance In 59 The race also tended to explode the claims of the Nevada Stock Farms Blue Hawk to great ness when he was rather a distant second The only other starter was J S Cosdens Knighthood This running of the Colorado lost much of Its interest by the withdrawal of II P Whitneys Itialto a highly con I Bldercd son of Chicle and Matinee and of I tho Rancocas stables Whirlwind one that had already shown muen quality Botn of these colts had fallen victims of the coughing i epidemic and each was found to have con ¬ tracted a fever after having been carded to start Others that were scratched were Aladdin also from the Rancocas stable and Crochet a stablemate to Knighthood Blue Hawk had won so impressively In his only start that one heard little of the other two before the running As for Knighthood ho seemed to be friendless friendlessThe The start was a good one and Great Man at once dashed into a good lead and racing along in smooth frictionless fashion went to the quarter in 23 and the half in 40 nnd never shortening his stride he was still drawing away and was under restraint at the end endThrough Through the erly running Knighthood had the speed of Blue Hawk but under good vigorous urging jhe son of Atheling II gradually wore dcjwn tho Cosden colt and beat him three ler ths for second place placeThe The California Handicap brought together some of tho best sprinters in training and resulted in a greilt victory for Mrs Louiso Vlaua Audaciou Tha Hancocas Stables CouUEl on fourth pace PAEKS TRIUMPH Continued from first page Thunderclap raced into second place and Morton Schwartz Column beat George H Bulls Mustard Seed the only other starter for the short end of the purse purseClarence Clarence Kummer took the lead at the start with Audacious and the result vas never afterward in doubt though Thunder ¬ clap saved some ground through the stretch and finished with great speed and gameness Column was away in a bit of a tangle but was rushed up on the outside and closed a considerable gap Ho had to circle around the others and through the last eighth that effort told on him and he was tiring Mus ¬ tard Seed showed a flash of speed but seemed to be a trifle short This race will doubtless do him a deal of good Incidental ¬ ly he has grown into a fine looking three yearold yearoldIt It was a good day for Charlie Failbrother He began well when he rode Toil to vic toiy and then he had the leg up on both feature winners when he rode Great Man and Senninga Park ParkThe The sport began with a five and a half furlongs dash for threeyearolds and it resulted in a good contest when Morton L Schwartzs Toil was winner from Sherando from the Oak Ridge Stable with J J Hertzs FiftyFifty third The others in the field were Vineyard and Astrolite Sherando was the one to set the pace and under a finished ride by Sande she made it interesting for Toil The Schwartz filly was easily the best of the others but Sandes efforts on Sherando kept the daughter of Sea King going and a close contender until well inside the last eighth Right at the end and when beaten Sande eased the filly slightly slightlyToil Toil had to race around both FiftyFifty and Sherando on the outside and Fairbrother was riding a wonderfully confident race Then when Sherando would not stop he had to sit down and ride vigorously to make the victory certain Astrolite which raced for G D TVidener was away slowly and never a contender contenderScottish Scottish Chief racing for the first time un ¬ der the silks of A Davis who recently claimed him out of a race was best in tho mile and 70 yards for platers that was the second offering Penman rushed him into a good lead at the start and he was good enough to make every post a winning one and be home an easy winner winnerThere There was a lively fight for second place when Drummond just lasted to beat Spugs after a long stretch battle Sande had driven Drummond at the head of the stretch in an effort to catch Scottish Chief but the old son of Ogden was quitting under the punish ¬ ment and it took all the skill of Sando to keep him going long enough to withstand the rush of Spugs SpugsY Y L Oliver deserted Jamaica for his Lakewood home Saturday and will spend the weekend in the pines pinesJames James Fitzsimmons is back from Pimlico and the horses of the Quincy Stable are on the way They will be shipped to Aqueduct
