ISTUYYESANT TO SNOB n French Son of Prestige May Dora Captures Jamaica Feature Frequent Rains Change Going Goingand and Reduce Size of Fields Lady Myras Good Race NEW YORK N T May 18 John San fords Snob II the French son of Prestige and May Dora was an easy winner of the mile Stuyvesant Handicap at Jamaica today and the nature of his victory was one to give him a prominent place among the eligibles for the Belmont and the Withers Stakes The Stuyvesant was run over a muddy track and during a rainstorm These conditions may have helped the French colt in his victory but he performed like a real highclass threeyearold and for a first ap ¬ pearance of the year it was a most impres ¬ sive race raceFrequent Frequent rain squalls all through the after ¬ noon changed the condition of the track shortly after the running of the second race and from then until the end of the program the track was sloppy and conditions most un ¬ comfortable The big crowd would run out on the lawn with each cessation of the down ¬ pour only to scurry to shelter again as a squall would come quickly over the track and for a time the rain drove into the grandstand until it was wellnigh impossible to find a dry spot spotThis This change in the going brought about several scratches during the day and it was apparent that some of those that were left in the Stuyvesant would have preferred dry going Thirteen had been carded and the ones to stay away were Emotion Sleiveco nard FiftyFifty and Letterman a stablemate to Pirate Gold and Galantman the two that were raced under the silks of the Greentree Stable StableThe The start was an excellent one and Galant ¬ man Pirate Gold Column and Violinist were the ones to show the way going to the first turn George Odoms Modo started well but he had an outside position and lost con ¬ siderable ground on the first turn and then appeared to slip about badly in the going Snob II was well up going away from the barrier and he was raced well from the in ¬ side rail by Sande SandeHOW HOW RACE WAS RTTK RTTKSwinging Swinging into the backstretch Galantman and Pirate Gold the Greentree pair closely lapped were showing the way and Morton L Schwartzs Column was right at their heels and in a measure pocketed by them Sande had Snob II farther out in the track and at the half mile ground he called on him and he moved up rapidly joining the leaders When the turn out of the back stretch was reached he had gone on by to open up a big lead then from there to the finish it was no contest for him to race along in front He had speed left at the end though Sande wisely kept him at his task for it does not do to ease a horse through such going Galantman held to sec ¬ ond place readily and third fell to his stable mate though it was apparent that Pirate Gold was not altogether at home in the go Ing IngThis This race was worth 4650 to the Sanford Stud Farm the name under which Snob II is raced this year yearInstead Instead of starting Letterman in the Stuy ¬ vesant he was worked a mile ten minutes after its running and ho galloped the dis ¬ tance easily in 140 indicating that he is a mud runner of some ability abilityShelby Shelby Burch began well with Pride of India the sprinter he has here for Samuel Ross the Washington sportsman He was the winner of the threequarters mile dash tiiat was the fifth offering and to score he beat rather a good lot of platers platersmiDE miDE OP I BIA EASILY EASILYThere There really was not much to the race for the Ross sprinter was much at home in the going and Keogh took him out early in the running and there was no time that he was seriously threatened B A Lanes Mavour neen was the one to race in second place and third fell to Mrs Paul J Foxs Mollie Barnes the lightweight of the company companyJockeys Jockeys that had never ridden two win ¬ ners were seen in the saddle in the opening threequarters dash for platers that was tho curtain raiser of the day

winner for at tho head of the stretch he bore out badly just after ho had circled around Esquire and Commissioner Eishmann the two that were setting the pace As Monastery Continued on sccomt pase TO

Esquire raced closely lapped In the lead from the start and It was not until well into the stretch that the Commissioner had enough o it and quit so badly that he finished well back in the field Esquire hung on well to savo second place and Star Court finished gamely gamelyBoth Both Catrone who rode the winner and Bell who was second on Esquire were win ¬ ners of maiden Jockey races the last previous time they had performed in the saddle saddleEdward Edward Arlingtons Lord Herbert was win ¬ ner of the mile and a sixteenth of the second race after a hard drive through the stretch He had met with considerable interference but E Fator who had tho mount mado hla move at the right spot and coming around the leaders was going away at the erd erdDrummcnd Drummcnd and Search Light III were the ones to cut out tha pace and while Lord Herbert was away well he was in danger of being carried wide on the first turn and Fator eased him back to escape permitting Tan II and Walk Up to show him tho way around that turn turnLOPD LOPD HERBERT IN LAST ST11IBE ST11IBEIn In the backstretch Fator continued to ease Lord Herbert while he was trying to race on the heels cf Walk Up Then when the threeeighths post was reached it becamo necessary for the old fellow to go to the outside to find racing room Drummond had caved ground on the stretch turn and Walk Up had run into second placo But the Ar Arun un in inearnest earnest and in a rattling drive he was along in time to be winner by a neck Drummond beat Walk Up a like distance Lady Zous tho one ridden by Lang was sluggish in tho j early running but closed a considerable gap land finished a distant fourth fourthThere There was a good finish in the fiveeighths for twoyearold selling plater fillies when Mrs M S Allans Lady Myra

Ege and when he had her away flying she had a slight ad ¬ vantage over Lady Ifyra tho one that had the inside rail position Going into the first turn Carter dropped back slightly to avoid the possibility of being shut off by Ege and as a result the Alterman filly had gone into a good lead by the time the threeeighths post was reached reachedCarter Carter then made his move with Lady Myra on the outside and at the same timo Bessie Leighton moved In a threatening man ¬ ner and was going so well that she threat ¬ ened to pass the two fillies that were leading tier In the stretch Carter brought Lady Myra up under a drive and the fight was on to the end Mrs Allans filly proving to have moro left Bessie Leighton tired in the stretch and surrendered third to Haidec in the last eighth
