EASY VICTORY FOR SNOB J S Cosdens HighPriced Colt Scores Impressively Defeats Preakness Winner Pillory Pilloryby by Three Lengths Dimnies Dimniesdales dales Fast Eace NKW YORK N Y May 31 J S Cos dens Snob II the colt that ho purchased for sr 000 from John Sanford earned 17050 of that purchase money back in the easiest sort of fashion at Belmont Park today when he was winner of the Withers Stakes from Ilkhard T Wilsons Pillory the Preakness winner and Clifford A Cochrans Juno Grass the one that raced third in the Preakness It was a worthy trjout for the mile and threeeighths of the Belmont to be run June 10 and it would seem that Snob II was one of the best purchases of recent years Hollie Hughes prepared him for tho Withers but after its running ho was turned over to William Garth who will handle him with the other Cosdcn horses horsesThere There was a surprisingly largo crowd out for the running of the Withers and the victory of Snob II was a most popular one There was a selling handicap that was a worthwhile race and altogether while the Withers was naturally the bright and particular feature tnere was plenty of in ¬ terest in the other races racesAfter After the Grcentree Stables Letterman had been withdrawn from the Withers it only left three starters and while Pillory had an admiring gallery while he was being saddled by Tom Healey and June Grass also at ¬ tracted considerable attention as Jim Kvans made him ready it was Snob II that most of the paddock visitors wanted to see and Ilollle Hughes was warmly congratulated on tho appearance of the colt As the three cantered to the post Billy Garth remarked Were nervous but hoping but the smile that went with it was a smile of confidence confidenceAWAY AWAY TO GOOD STAIIT STAIITStarter Starter Cansldy lost no time at the barrier and as the three walked up he sent them away at the llrst attempt June Grass be ¬ gan more rapidly than the other two and Butwell sent him along to a lead of a couple of lengths Clarence Kummer had Snob II lacing after him while Pillory was a length and a half farther away awayOnce Once under way Kummer took a stiff hold of Snobs head and ho was under this re ¬ straint all through the backstretch at tho same time holding his position well within striking distance of June Grass 1lllory was going smoothly but he was not under the same restraint restraintSwinging Swinging out of the backstretch Snob II moved up on the outside of June Grass until he was racing stride for stride with the Cochran threeyearold but he was still under restraint and Kummer made no effort to go by This was still the order until around the stretch corner and then as Pil ¬ lory moved up Kummer permitted Snob II to go into the lead and ho just cantered the rest of tho distance Pillory had little trouble in taking second place from June CJ rass rassTho Tho Freeport a handicap under selling conditions was second on tho program and it brought about an excellent contest when Frank J Farrclls Dlmmesdale was winner from Walter N Jeffords Uoutledge while the Grcentree stables Exodus beat II P Whitneys Broomster for tho short end of tho purse purseLONG LONG DELAY AT IJAniUIUt IJAniUIUtIt It was a dash of six and a half furlongs and thero was a considerable delay at tlu barrier for which Uoutledgo and Exodus wero chlelly to blame blameThe The start was an excellent one and Dlm mesdale took command Broomster racing next to the inside rail was right at the heels of the Farrell sprinter while Routlcdge was outrunning the others For a tlmo Broom hter was in danger of being cut off but he escaped that interference and was fjllll i second place swinging out of the backstretch backstretchExodus Exodus wan racing along strongly on tho outside while Knohblu was unnblo to reach a contending position Be Frank and Wai Mask the other starters wero also outrun all the way wayMaking Making the turn into the stretch Dlmmes ¬ dale was clear but both Broomster and Routledgu wero racing strongly back of him CoutlaueJ ou tenth pace EASY VICTORY FOR SNOB II Continued from first pace while Exodus was also going along In reso ¬ lute fashion In the last eighth when Pen ¬ man called on Broomster he swerved sharply to the rail losing some ground and from there to tho finish ho was quitting badly Routledge hung on well and waa lapped on Dlramesdale at the end while Exodua waa along In time to easily take the third from the tiring Broomster BroomsterTho Tho third was a mile for cheap platers and brought out sixteen They were all to be sold for 1000 and if the conditions had re ¬ quired them all to bo sold for half tfiat figure it is probable there would have been few of those raced that would not have been entered There are always cheap horses enough to fill races racesW W V Caseys Cote dOr proved the winner with LEclair second and Algoa third though from the stand it seemed the battle for third waa only among Carnarvon Lady Zeus and Buxom On tho way to the post LEclair ran off with Kelsay but redcoat Murray was right after him and caught him before he had run far This evidently had no effect on his running for he had speed enough to go out and race Carnarvon into defeat and then go on for a good lead Kelsay did not give him a chance to take a long breath but shot him right along until he was lengths to the good goodThrough Through the stretch he began to Ure and the last eighth Cote dOr finally wore him down to win going away The next three finished in a close bunch and it looked as if Lady Zeus and Buxom were closely lapped on him but Algoa was the one picked by the placing judges while they placed Carnarvon fourth fourthOLD OLD JYNTEE HO3IE FIRST FIRSTOld Old Jyntee the Nurserybred daughter of Fair Play and Job Lot was winner of the threequarters for fillies and mares that was the fifth offering At the end she was doing her best to outstay tho Marrono Stables Catharine Marrone while Mavourneen was third after having been ridden all over the track in the stretch stretchJyntee Jyntee left tho post fast and forced the pace all tho way Chewink and Mavourneen chased after her while Catharine Marrone was close to the inner rail and a bit slow to find her racing legs legsSwinging Swinging for home Jyntee tired slightly and as Catharine Marrone tried to come through on the inside sho was blocked and Penman pulled her out At this time Jyntee waa carrying Mavourneen out and Lyke went back and to the inside Penman preferred being carried out and right to the end Catharine Marrone was gaining on Jyntee but sho could not quite overtake Fred Krafts marc In tho meantime Mavour ¬ neen had closed with such a rush on the inside as to suggest that had not Lyke changed his course in the stretch he would probably have landed her the winner winnerTho Tho opening race was a four and a half furlong dash over tho straight course for twoyearold fillies and it fell to Sam H Harris True Flier the filly that was de ¬ veloped at Havana and also the winner of the opening twoyearold stake at Jamaica J S Cosdens Brilliance was a good second and In third place waa Richard T Wilsons Kirk Lady LadyTRUE TRUE FLIER TROVES TOO FAST FASTTrue True Filer and Brilliance running down the middle of the course dominated the run ¬ ning all the way In the early stages Kirk Lady racing along the inner rail was a close third but right at the end she tired rather badly though she saved third money from the Sunnyland Stables Haidee one that was finishing in good style styleDimmesdale Dimmesdale has grown and improved greatly since he went into retirement last fall and Will Wallace has him in a con ¬ dition that makes him a sprinter hard to beat beatAfter After the running of tho Withers Snob II was turned over to William Garth who will complete his preparation for the Belmont Stakes for his new owner J S Cosden This good colt was developed by Hollie Hughes and was in his care until after the running of the Withers It waa originally thought that he would remain in the Hughes stable until after tho decision of the Belmont Stakes StakesHarry Harry F Sinclair owner of the Rancocas Stable was on hand to see Knobbie perform in the selling handicap handicapWhen When A B Hancock purchased the ten Omar Khayyam yearlings from Mrs Louise Viau it waa to add them to the band from the same stallion that he will send to the Saratoga sales He had six by this young sire so that with his recent purchases his consignment will number sixteen They will be sold by the FasigTipton company companyJames James W McClelland who has been ill for some time waa out for the first time this
