LORD ASTORS OAKS WINNER1 Pogrom s Success Consoles the; Owner in a Measure for Series of Defeats in the Derby. BY E. E. COFSSLLL. LOKDON, Fngland, Juno 6. — Lord Astor, In winning the Oaks with Pogrom, obtained fomp recompense for his third Derby second In four years. It is worth while noting that . he won a war-time Oaks at New;narket with Bunny Jane, sister to Craig an Fran. j Half an hour before the decision of the : Oaks 5 to 2 could have been obtained against j ! Pogrom. It had leaked out that she nad i j been well tried with Tamar. In the end j aha started a 5 to 4 favorite. With auch lillie.s as Silver Urn and Soubriquet in the j ! held, this was, as one or two people described it. a sensational price; in fact, when the miles were at the post most books refused to lay Lord Asters filly. Pogrom won right enough and enabled ■ Alee Taylor to add to his already brilliant ; record hi the Oaks, for, including two races I j during the war at Newmarket, he has now i trained six Oaks winners. They are: 1010. i ] RoaeOrop; lOlT. Sunny Jane; 1D18, My Dear; j : li 19, Bayuda; l! 21. Love In Idleness; 1*22, | Pogrom. This is a wonderful record, which ealy Taylor himself is likely to eclipse. There were eleven starters for the Oaks, j j of which Silver Urn. Soubriquet, lfyshi and | Lattice bad competed In the One Thousand Guineas. The other runners at Epsom were Pogrom. Galadeila, Adulation, Laughter, Nightshiit, Anonyms and I.ona. Almost at the last minute Gardner was substituted for Breaaan as th" rider of Lord Astors tidy. LATTICE SETS THE PACE. As regards the race, there Is little to describe. From a good start Lattice went In front from Mysia, with Pogrom third. Silver Urn and Soubriquet were near the end of the field. They improved their position after going three-quarters. Rounding Tattenham OBMW, the order of the leaders was unchanged, lattice, which is a Oily of one speed, however, soon gave way aid about J three-eighths from home Pogrom took the lead. DSBOghue by this time had brought up Bosjbrtquet, which was clearly outpaced in the early part of the race. In the last quarter. Donoghue gave the onlookers a mighty thrill by instantly seizing an opening which presented itself and forced Soubriquet into his favorite position on the rails. For an eighth she made a mighty effort, but could not reach any closer than: I Pogroms quarters. The winner was always going too strongly for her. and Pogrom, I think, won the race on her merits. Of course Donoghue was freely blamed ! by those most Interested in Soubriquet. She j was sweating tremendously before the race. This may have taken something out of her. i Impartial spectators were of the conclusive! opinion the beat filly won the race. Mysia i was beaten three lengths for third position, j and with Oalaciella just behind her; it was I the latter s first appearaice on a race course. ! Bhe is by Lemberg arid Lady Vista. SILYKSt IKNS rOOB SHOWING. j The sensation of the race was furnished I ! by Silver Urn, whose owner, attracted by 1 j the prospect of her winning the race, crossed from Ireland to see her run for the first i time. It was a cruelly disappointing expe-riace for hiss, to see her finish last but one. j : We all felt sure that something must have j ! happened to her. though before the race most people seemed to fear she would be ! [ troubled by tiie hard ground. An inquiry subsequently elicited the infor- ; ■nation that Silver Urn was struck into or struck herself coming down the hill, at which point the Blly was racing extremely well. Silver Iras near foreleg was deeply gashed ; she undoubtedly aggravated the injury by continuing to race, and practically finished ■ on three legs. It is extremely doubtful if she will ever run again. 11. S. Persse wash terribly cut tip by the mishap, but found I some consolation in the fact that, after all, j Silver Urn bad done enough for fame. Personally I could not see a daughter of Juggernaut staying the severe one and one-half miles at. Epsom. The time for the Oaks was 2:3€%, and the stake was worth about 30,000 to the winner. It only needs to he added that Soubriquet ■was second favorite at 7 to 2 ; 5 to 1 was laid against Silver Im; Mysia was on offer I at 100 to I. Silver Im was the best looking filly ml, the field, but Pogrom on her appearance pressed her closely. The winner is a fair ; •sized bay filly, a little star on her fore- ! head, and white on her near hind pastern. Soubriquet is a well-balanced deep-girthed filly, but she has not filled out over her quarters since she ran in the One Thousand Guineas and looked narrow in comparison with Pogrom. 1 LEMBERG FILLIES SHOW WELL. Perhaps the mest noteworthy feature about the Oaks is the fact that three of the first tour fillies In the race were sired by Lem- . berg. The half-brother to Payardo has been j : a long time making a name, but last year he came to the fore with Lemonora and [ I.emhach. lie has now consolidated his position with Pogrom and Soubrquet. Pogrom was. of course, bred by Lord 1 Astor. She was foaled April 17, 1319, and is 1 the second foal of Popingaol. which is ah sister to Magpie. He was beaten a head in the Two Thousand Guineas. Popingaol : herself, after starting slowly, finished fourth • in the One Thousand Guineas behind Can- yon, FlflneUa and Salamandra. She won ] the Plantation Two-Year-OId Plate at New- 1 market from a big field, and tiie next sea- eon was successful in a one and one-quarter mile race at Newmarket. Her first foal was Oubliette, which ran second in the National Breeders Produce t Stakes of 5,000 at Sandown Park. She j afterward split a pastern and did not race | again for nearly a year. She won her last Btart, which was the Sheen Plate of ,500, I over one mile at Hurst Park last November. 1 Popingaol has a two-year-old filly named 1 Splendid Jay, by Kwang-Su. In 1921 she j produced a fine colt by The Tetrarch. Un- j fortunately when about three months old 1 he died from "joint evil," which was a big 1 loss for his breeder. Popingaol had a foal 1 by Cylgad this year and has again been sent 1 to The Tetrarch. | The mare is by Dark Donald, sire of Son- i in-Law, out of Popinjay, half-sister to Neil i Cow. This is the famous Paraffin family, : • ] 1 t j | I 1 1 j j 1 1 1 1 | i i : which in the last thirty years has produced such classic winners as Prince Palatine St. Leger, Cicero Derby, Ladas Two Thousand Guineas and Derby, Chelandry One Thousand Guineas, and dam of Neil Gow, which won the Two Thousand Guineas, Vau-cluse One Thousand Guineas, Flair One Thousand Guineas, Bettina One Thousand Guineas, and now Pogrom the Oaks. It is without doubt one of the most notable families in the KnglLsh Stud Book. A few days prior to the decision of the Oaks Frederick Johnson made a judicious purchase of the three-year-old mare Aroma, by Santry son of Gallinule, from Martial Note dam of Chacolet, by Carbine — Chelandry. This mare ran second last year and has this season been mated with the Cambridgeshire winner Brigand, a good-looking son of Lemberg. As Chelandry is the third dam of Pogrom — a daughter of Lemberg — the similarity of the breeding and the great stud value of Aroma will be apparent She should prove a valuable addition to Johnsons stud.
