TRYSTER VICTORIOUS AGAIN o Wins the Fleetwood Handicap Featuring Empire City Card. e Whisk Wakes Up and Takes His Race Easily Cyclops Qualifies for the Whirl Stakes. YONKERS, N. Y., July 12. R. L. Gerrya Cyclops was an easy winner of the opening five-eighths dash that brought together a speedy band of two-year-olds. At the end he was two lengths clear of Richard x. Wilsons Tall Timber, while the Rancocas Stables Suweep beat John E. Maddens Wild-rake for the short end of the purse. The race was in the nature of a trial for the Whirl Stakes, to be run Saturday, and the performance of Cyclops gives him an altogether new importance. It was a good start and Tall Timber set a fast pace, but Cyclops went right along with him and Wildrake was in third place, but a couple of lengths away. Tall Timber held to his lead until well into the stretch where he began to tire and Cyclops passed him to come on and win by a good two lengths. Tall Timber saved second place and Suweep had no trouble in drawing away from Wildrake. In the rush through the stretch there was some bumping between Wildrake and Suweep, but it haa no effect on the result. J. J. OTooles Algoa has won a race. He took the mile cQondjace from Lord Herbert, while back of him were Moody and The Post. The race was a disgracefully slow one when it took these platers 1 :56 to cover the distance. It was a two-horse race all the way after Lord Herbert joined Algoa on the backstrelch. Inside the last eighth Lord Herbert challenged under Breunings weak riding, and he was within a half length of Algoa at the end, but could get no closer. With a good rider he would have won. The Fleetwing Handicap, over the about three-quarters course, was the main race of the day. It brought some of the best sprinters of the day to the post. The Whitney pair, Tryster and Calamity Jane, and the Rancocas Stable entry, Knobbie aad Thunderclap, opened equal favorites at 8 to u, but the close of operations found the Whitney pair in firm preference at 3 to 2, while the Rancocas pair had receded to 12 to .r. The fleet fooled Pen Rose took up the role of pacemaker at once at a fast rate of speed, led to midway of the stretch, where Calamity Jane headed her, but the latters supremacy was of brief duration. She wa. soon in trouble, but rescue was at hand and Tryster, coming with a timely rush, took up the running successfully, but had to be ridden briskly to win by a length from his former stablemate. Exodus. Knobbie carried his big weight gallantly and finished a fast rushing third. The race benefited tne Whitney treasury to the extent of ,000 ar.d showed Tryster is still a racer to be feared. WINS BY FOUR LENGTHS. Whisk, from the Marrone stable, won the mile and seventy yards of the third race all the way and at the end was showing the way to Crank by four lengths, wlult? Tufter just nosed War Mask out for the short end of the purse. In a previous race, but over a sprinting distance, Whisk was so thoroughly beaten that he was not considered seriously for this occasion. From a good start McAtee rushed him into the lead before the first turn was reached and h- never had to surrender that position, winning in a canter. Crank was in second place when the backstretch was reached and he 1 held to that position for the rest of tho race. Tufter after racing third most of th- way surrendered to War Mask before the 1 stretch was reached, but coming again right at the end took third place again in the last , stride. Ralco ran a thoroughly bad race and was eased up a bad last, while there was no part of the running in which either Wynne-wood or Caligula cut any figure. The stewards have allowed the claim of T. D. Tenniville for Hillhouse. taken f fun the Nevada Stock Farm Stable Tuesday. It d?-I velops that T. D. Tenniville is Miss Theodosia I Tenniville. Thomas Welsh, who trains the horses of 5 Joseph E.
