WILLIAM TELL THE VICTOR Takes Lynbrook Selling Stakes for Robert L. Gerry. Sande Gives "Wonderful Exhibition of Hiding Skill on The Almoner Summerlikc Weather Still Prevails. NEW YORK, N. T., October 3. Robert L. Gerrys William Tell was the winner of the stake offering at Jamaica when he was first home in the running of the Lynbrook, a selling stake for two-year-olds at five and a half furlongs. It had a value of ,200 and there were nine starters. Aladdin, from the Rancocas Stable, was the one to finish second and William Daniels Blanc Seing just nosed out J. 33. Smiths Silk Tassel for third. It was another day of unseasonably warm weather and it was more like August than October. The crowd was a big one, the track in its best condition and though two of the races were for maidens, the sport was interesting. Sequel, racing for Ernest Heider, showed her usual alertness at the post in the JLynn-hrook and she was first to show out of the bunch, but Silk Tassel -was right after her and William Tell was not far away. Aladdin began well, but he was slightly shuffled back in the early stages and. it took him some time to find his racing legs. When he did Fator was forced to race around on the outside with him and with better luck in the early stages he might have been winner. SEQUEL TIRES IN STRETCH. When the stretch was reached Sequel began to tire and then it was that William Tell took command. By that time Aladdin had come around on the outside and was fairly running over his company. Right to the end he continued to gain, but he was still three parts of a length from the winner at the end. Blanc Seing met with some slight interference in the running and when too late he closed considerable ground, but there was no time that he was close enough to be seriously considered. As for Silk Tassel, she was used up chasing Sequel and was quitting badly when the final test came in the last eighth. The others were well strung out, with Richard T. Wilsons Forest Lore last of them all. that was the fifth offering was easy for The mile and an eighth for selling platers Richard T. Wilsons Vendor and he was a cantering winner from P. S. P. Randolphs Horeb, with Mrs. N. L. Byers Orderly the one to race third. From a good start Marinelli sent old Orderly to the front and he was well clear of his opponents all through the backstretch run. Horeb was chasing after him and before completing the first half mile Jelly, who had the mount, was driving him in a vain effort to catch Orderly. Roseate II., the son of Seasick and Rosetta that J. L. Holland took from Chester Apple-gate out of a selling race, was winner from the other maidens that raced in the opening five and one-half furlongs dash. The finish was a truly thrilling one when he was just up to score from the Lilac Stables Chile, while Bud Fishers Black Friday was only a neck away. Chester Applegate boosted Roseate II. from him entered price of ,500 to ,400, but he was protected and bought in by Shields for J. L. Holland for ,405. JOCKEY RICE SUSPENDED. After the running of this race, Sande was called into the stand and questioned about some interference his mount had suffered In the back stretch. After he had been questioned Rice was suspended for the remainder of the meeting for having crowded Black Friday with Chile. Sande gave another wonderful exhibition of riding when he landed The Almoner from the Rancocas Stable winner from Frederick Johnsons High Speed in the three-quarter dash for maidens that was the third offering. His mount had begun slowly, met with no end of interference and was forced to go to the outside in the stretch, but under Sandes vigorous finish he got up to win in the last stride. High Speed beat J. Mac-Donalds Good Time two lengths for second place. Miss M. L. Mahler, whose Carmencita was a winner at Jamaica Monday, has added another horse to her small string. She purchased Canyon, the three-year-old son of Harmonicon and Welsh Maid, from J. A. Coburn. Changes made in the equipment of starters at Jamaica today were when blinkers were added to Owasco and Aladdin, while they were taken from Broomflax. Harry L. Shaw has received the stake blanks for the Business Mens Racing Associations meeting at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans and distributed them among the horsemen.
