Bo McMillan, the son of Ballot and Nettie Hastings, that T. .T. Pendergast bought at th Max Hirs?h sale for 21500 recently, was the winner of the Sanford Memorial Stakes for his new owner this afternoon in a gamely run race. Dan E. OSullivan, an added starter, finished in second place, r.iul Tall Timber was third. This was the feature of a card that was run off over a track that was deep and heavy, although on the surface it appeared in good condition. The weather was all that could be desired for the sport and there was a large crowd on hand. The day brought thf first disqualification of the meeting when King Albert, after having finished third in his rao was set back for fouling, while his rider 10. Martz was suspended for six days. There was plenty of excitement before the start of the Sanford Memorial when Moon-r.iker reared at the barrier and came down on top of Penman on Spot Cash, sweeping him from the saddle and bruising him somewhat. Penman remounted the Whitney colt and then, just to show that the roughing I he had received made no difference, he had j the son of Broomstick away in the first j flight. Tall Timber made the running, but it was a good start and the others were in a cluster, with Spot Cash soon working his way into second place and going in a fashion that suggested an ability to go to the Wilson colt at the first asking. Bo McMillan was racing further out from Banter, which held to second place, but before the stretch was readied began to drop back. M U.I STOlS TALL TIMBER. Tall Timber was still showing the way on the turn for home, with Spot Cash a good second, but when Penman called on him failed in the heavy going in the stretch and began to shorten his stride. Then Tall Timber himself tired and Bo McMillan, Dan 13. O Sullivan and Autumn Bells all were closing up on the outside. Just when Autumn Bells seemed to have a chance he swerved over to the deep going, but Bo McMillan came on i straight and true and at the end was the winner by a length, while Dan E. OSullivan saved "second place from the tiring Tall Timber by a half length, with Spot Cash a close fourth. After the finish Edward K. Thornton accepted the handsome gold cup that was the trophy going with the race on behalf of Mr. Pendergast. Mrs. S. A. Cloptons New Orleans was the winner of the opening three-quarters dash for cheap platers from Notime and The Peruvian. It was a good start and in the backstretch The Peruvian. Notime, Belmon and New Orleans were all closely lapped with the last named racing on the inside. Leaving the backstretch New Orleans dropped back badly and the other three drew away from him until it seemed that he was beaten. Then Belmon had enough and dropped out and it narrowed to a race between The Peruvian and Notime until well around the stretch turn. There New Orleans, j after swinging wide, came again and raced by the other two in the last eighth to win going away with a length to spare. Notime outstayed The Peruvian to save second place by a length. Only three went to the post in the second race and the Oakridge Stables Northclift proved an easy winner from Chesterbrook and Broomflax, the latter making his first appearanec of the year under colors. The race was for three-year-olds and North-cliff took up top weight of 122 pounds, conceding three pounds to Chesterbrook and eleven to Broomflax, making it a good-class performance for the son of Sea King and Doria. KING ALBERT DISQUALIFIED. There was a disqualification in the third race when King Albert, after finishing thkd, was set back for foul riding in the stretch, although as a matter of fact, his mount was the chief sufferer by reason of the foul ride. The race fell to Halu, which raced under the silks of J. S. Ward and after the finish found his way back into the Sam Louis barn, when he was run up from an entered price of ,400 to ,100. J. S. Ccsdens Doughoregan was a winner of the five-eighths dash for maiden two-year-olds that was the fifth offering and August Belmonts beatitude, after meeting with much interference, raced to second place, with Humboldt beating Miss Star for the short end of the purse. Doughoregan was raced Continued on twelfth pase. BO MMILLANS GOOD RACE Continued from first page. on the outside and was in the best going through the stretch, finishing with a rush to win by a couple of lengths. Beatitude was raced wide in the early running and on the far turn when she was running in gallant fashion she got into trouble. Then in the stretch .at the eighth post she swerved into the deep going. Curtis, which is better than a half brother to Billy Kelly, quit so badly after an early flash of speed that he was eased up into last place by Sande in the stretch. At the end of the program John Loftus made it a double for the Oakridge Stable when Runelise, sister to Morvich, was an easy winner of a five-eighths dash for two-year-old fillies. Back ot her were Silk Tassel, Kindred and oreat Lady, while Childs Play bolted at the start and was left.
