ENDS IN BLAZE OF GLORY Sparkling Racing Marks Last Day of Jamaicas Grand Meeting Lady Myra Captures Greenfield GreenfieldStakes Stakes Billy McLaughlin McLaughlinWins Wins Ocean Handicap NEW YORK N Y May 21 Racing cama to an end at Jamaica this afternoon and it marked the close of one of the most success ¬ ful meetings ever conducted by the Metro ¬ politan Jockey Club For the closing day the crowd was a large one though with the ex ¬ ception of the Greenfield Selling Stakes for twoyearolds and a handicap over the mile and seventy yards distance there was not anything out of the ordinary in the program offered offeredThe The Greenfield brought about a firstclass contest when Mrs M S Allens Lady Myra won her third consecutive victory in a rat ¬ tling finish with Sam Harris True Flier The race was worth 3350 to the winner winnerOn On the way to the post J L Hollands Rork ran off with Penman and he ran at top speed for something more than a quarter of a mile before he was pulled up He had hardly been brought back when the Nevada Stock Farms Oakwood bolted with P Walls and he ran an eighth before he could be pulled up upThe The start was a good one and Duster and Lady Myra were first to show out of the bunch Rork left from the outside position and Penman rushed him around until he was showing the way on the turn out of the back stretch True Flier followed the Holland gelding and at the head of the stretch she drew alongside and in a half dozen strides was on by and in the lead leadCALLAHAtfS CALLAHAtfS VIGOROUS RIDE RIDEIn In the meantime Lady Myra had dropped back slightly and Callahan swung her out on the stretch turn and when he called on her she answered in gallant fashion Seldom in his long service as a jockey has old man Callahan ridden with more energy and the filly responded nobly to his call Stride by stride she drew up on True Flier until right near the end she went on by to win by half a length Half a dozen lengths farther back Duster had no trouble in beating the tired Rork for third place placeThe The performance of Lady Myra stamped her as a truly game filly and the manner in which she fought it out through the stretch makes it appear that she is destined for better things before the end of the year It was in the Suffolk and the Greenfield that Morvich made his lowly beginning last year yearThe The Ocean Handicap was really the best race of the day when Billy McLaughlin Flying Cloud Wynncwood and Tufter fought it out so close together that it was anybodys race until the last few yards when Billy McLaughlin drew away to win by a length Evidently equipment makes little difference to Billy McLaughlin for while he won tho Garden City Stakes without the aid of blink ¬ ers he wore the rogues badge in todays contest contestTOO TOO MUCH FOR WYNJfEVOOI WYNJfEVOOIWynnewood Wynnewood was the one to set the early pace and Eddie Kummer had Billy McLaugh ¬ lin in second place They were a couple of lengths before Tufter and Flying Cloud The latter was on the inside rail and Lang on Tufter kept him pinned in there where ho had scant chance to improve his position The others were strung out with Superlative last of the seven that raced It was not until nearing the threeeighths post that Kummer called on Billy McLaughlin and ha went to Wynnewood carrying the Webber gelding along at a clip that took all the speed out of him Straiglitened for homa Billy McLaughlin was clear and none could overtake him himHughie Hughie from the stable of H L Jones was winner of the opening fiveeighths dash for selling platers two years old and at thu end he was doing his best to beat Thomas Monahans Lank while H Roseachers Bes ¬ sie Leighton was third and St Angelina from the J A Manone stable fourth Tho only other starter was J S Cosdens Reap and he was pulled up by Clarence Kummer shortly after making the turn out of the backstretch Hughie showed the most speed and was rushed into an early lead and St Angelina was in second place until well into the stretch In the run home Hughie bore out badly carrying Lank with him and it was a battle all the way home between tho pair of them themSelling Selling plater maidens to race a mile and seventy yards was the second offering and A J Joyncr furnished the winner in George D Wideners Mount Hope a threeyearold daughter of Mount dOr and Navarres Hope Continued ou twelfth page ENDS IN BLAZE
