MAKING NEW RECORDS Miss Star Wins the Beldame Handicap in Fast Time. 0 Irish Sea First in the Steeplechase King Albert Victorious Again in a Good Race. NEW YORK. N. T., September 25. Another track record was smashed at Aqueduct today when Miss Star, from the Riviera Stable, raced the five-eighths cf the Beldame Handicap Stakes in 57 seconds. At the end she was a length clear of the Ran-cocas Stables Suweep, while another from the same stable, Edict, the Spinaway Stakes . winner, was a close third. The race was worth ,150 to the winner. It was an interesting days sport that attracted a big crowd to the old track and the general conditions could not have been improved upon. In addition to the Beldame Handicap there Was a steeplechase that resulted in a good contest and a selling handicap at six and a half furlongs that brought out a representative field cf sprinters. After Frederick Johnsons Possible had been added to the Beldame Handicap Stakes it was a field of eleven that went to the post, with Edict giving away considerable weight when she was asked to take up 123 pounds. The others scaled down to 104 pounds, the weight that had been assigned John Maddens Best Love. Little time was lost at the barrier and when Miss Star began in front she had speed enough to hold her advantage. Through the early lacing Taplin sent her along until she was clear pnd saving ground when it could be saved there was no time that she was really seriously threatened. Suweep and Silk Tassel followed the leader closely to the last sixteenth, where Silk Tassel tired and Edict, finishing gamely, readily beat her for the short end of the money. How Fair began well enough, but was r.iuckly shuffled back until she hail scant chance. In the last eighth she swerved over to the inside, where there was no possible chance to come through and as a result she was one of the rear division to the finish. PRIXCE OF UMBRIA MAKES GOOD. Prince of Umbria, from the stable of J. B. Smith, aided by blinkers added to his equipment by Max Hirsch, was the winner of the opening three-quarters dash. It was for selling plater two-year-olds, and he proved easily best of the starters when he led practically from end to end. He beat Evelyn Sawyer by something more than a length, while the filly pust got up in time to take second place from Lady Rose by a neck. Lady Rose had raced second most of the way and it was only in the last eighth tha she tired and was beaten out for second money. Bonfire made his first start under the George Peterson silks and, being off rather badly, did not take any active part in the running of the race. Ii-ish Sea, the four-year-old son of Celt and Sand Dune, that races for the Greentree Stable, was an easy winner of the Great South Bay Steeplechase. It was over the two-mile course and for non-winners of two races. Decisive raced to second place and third fell to Vox Populi II. Reparation and Commodore Gaunt were the only others to finish. Treviscot, racing as a stablemate to Reparation, fell with P. Brady at the twelfth jump, while Yorkshire stepped in a hole between the twelfth and the thirteenth jumps and went down on the flat. Fortunately, .both riders escaped serious injury. Decisive and Treviscot cut out the running early. Marsters saved Irish Sea some lengths back of the pair. The others were well strung out, with Commodore Gaunt and Reparation rather distant followers. In the second turn of the course Decisive forced Treviscot along at such a pace that he finally came down. Then it was that Irish Sea rushed to the front and once there the result was no longer in doubt. KING ALBERTS THIRD STRAIGHT. Only three horses went to the post for the mile and a sixteenth of the third race, but it furnished a thrilling finish when all three of them Were closely lapped at the end with P. S. P. Randolph King Albert first, Overtake second and Canyon third. This victory made it three straight for King Albert and it was a good performance when he took up 121 pounds against Overtake with 109 and Canyon with only 104 pounds. Canyon made the running and stole away into a good early lead while Ensor had King Albert under hard restraint back of him with Overtake galloping along easily back of the Randolph Continued on twelfth paje. . . j . j I j j !
