I j ! . j I j SENNINGS PARK A VICTOR : Outpaces and Outfinishes Brainstorm in the Interborough. Emotion Wins a Good Race Satellite Xo Longer a Maiden Some Jamaica Track Gossip of Interest. NEW YORK, N. Y., October 12. Sennings Park came back to something like the form that was his early in the year, when he twice took the measure cf Mad Hatter. At Jamaica today he won the Interborough Han-1 dicap, at a mile and a sixteenth. At the ! end he was doing his best to withstand the j rush of Brainstorm, cue that also has a 1 victory over Mad Hatter to his credit. Horo- ! loge was a close third and Hephaistcs was the only other starter. This was the feature offering of the Columbus day program that ; attracted an immense crowd to the course cf the Metropolitan Jockey Club. The day was bright and clear and the going had dried out wonderfully until it was good, although far from being fast. There was a wholesale trimming of the j Interborough before pest time when Mad I Hatter, Knobbie, Tryster. Emotion and Irish j Brigadier were all withdrawn, but it left enough to furnish a worthy contest for the prize of ,G25 that fell to the Winner. Little time was lost at the barrier and Lyke rushed Sennings Park away from the pest and rode hard to the first turn to hold his rail position. The lightly-weighted ITeph-aistos and Horologe were right after him, while Brainstorm brought up the rear and Fator was saving him while the other three sprinted. Through the backstretch Lyke I took hold of Sennings Park slightly without ! ! surrendering his lead, but, when Hearing the : stretch turn, both Horologe and Hephaislos j j were pressing him so closely that he had to j ride the son of Jim Gaffney along. When i j making the turn for home he swung out I I somewhat and it was there that Fator made ! his move with Brainstorm. When called on I the Waterson three-year-old closed up in resolute fashion and for an instant it seemed that he would catch the pacemaker, nut Lyke had saved something for just such a challenge and, sitting down on the West-mont Stable six-year-old, he rode him out vigorously to have him win by a scant length. Brainstorm, by reason of having saved ground on the stretch turn, beat Horologe three parts of a length for second place and Hephaistos was only a half length farther back. HEX WOODS RATTLIXC FIXI51I. There was a rattling finish came out of the first race when Ben Wood, from the Marrone Stable, won from Raffles, one that raced for J. L. Holland for the first time, and Avalanche, racing for P. S. P. Randolph. Raffles cut out the running and Sande had him under slight restraint in front to the head of the stretch, while Ben Wood and Avalanche were easily outfooting the others. At the head of the stretch Raffles ran out slightly as Ben Wood came alongside and Avalanche saved ground by a close turn and the three were lapped. It was a fight all j through the last eighth and Ben Wood was the winner by a half length, while the tired Raffles just beat Avalanche by a neck for second place. Two old-time jockeys fought it out in the second race when Obert just landed Mrs. Cooks Witchwork the winner from Rustler, with "Longshot" Jess Conley in the saddle, j They both came wide in the stretch and got up to beat Horeb, Consort and Orderly, the three that had been fighting it out earlier in the stretch drive. It was a mile and an eighth and Consort made the running, with. Orderly and Horeb leading the others. Turning out of the backstretch, Horeb raced by Consort, but on the stretch turn he was forced out slightly by the early pacemaker and Orderly made a rush along the inner rail. An eighth from the finish the three were battling and Horeb had something on the other two when the danger loomed up on the outside. Rustler was closing up mightily and Witchwork was coming with him. Right at the end they headed the other three and Witchwork, the outside one of all, won by a head from Rustler and Horeb Continued on twelfth pase. SENNINGS PARK A VICTOR Continued from first i:igc. had nosed out Consort for third place. Satellite, from the Rancocas Stable, was graduated from the ranks of the maidens when he won the three-quarters dash that was the third offering. At the end he was doing his best to beat the Oak Ridge Stables Sakah, while Spread Eagle was a distant third. Sakah set the pace and Robinson stole away into a good early lead with him. Sande saved Satellite back of him until nearing the stretch turn, where he moved up on the outside. As he came alongside Sakah ran out badly and forced Satellite out with him. An eighth out Sande went to the whip and in a drive he gradually wore Sakah down to win going away. Spread Eagle was live lengths farther back in third place. Four three-year-old fillies met in the Golden Rod, a condition purse at a mile and seventy yards that was the fifth offering, and of them Robert L. Gerry was represented by two in Emotion and Bees Wax. Emotion was the winner, but she had to be hard ridden to beat Story Teller, and My Reverie beat Bees "Wax for the short end of the purse. There was general disappointment when Sam Hildreth withdrew several of the Rancocas Stable consignment that were catalogued to be sold. These were Gurtis, Rigel, Coeur de Lion, Aladdin and Stockmar. Max Uirsch was an arrival from Laurel. John Biennan, superintendent of Aqueduct, ! was a visitor at Jamaica. He said that the two new stables on the Aqueduct backstretch were being inclosed and broadened for winter quarters. The same work is being done on three stables at RockrtWay road. J. L. Holland bought Raffles from J. E. AVidencr before the running of the first race and he raced under the Holland silks. Fred Hopkins has sold the plater Dare to M. Apcrs. E. J.

After Avalanche was beaten in the opening race he was claimed from P. S. 1. Randolph by J. II. Tevis for .22G. Earl Skater Reynolds, for so long a familiar figure about the New "York tracks, was a Ceiumbus Day visitor. It was his first visit to Jamaica since the opening of the track. George P. Fuller, owner of the Sunnyland Stable, was an arrival from San Francisco. j I j i j I I I
