CHICAGO RACIGliP " p Experimental Meeting at Hawthorne Comes to Glorious Finish. B Crowd Exceeding 20,000 Sees Farewell Program Harry B. Scores Fifth Straight Victory. l ai H la Racing: in Chicago has come and pone. The a at experimental meeting of thirteen days, con- C ducted at Hawthorne by the Illinois Jockey ?S Club, came to a glorious end Saturday aft- Q. ernoon with a crowd exceeding 20.0C0 voicing 0 their approval. It was a wonderful climax c. to a most successful experiment and certainly g the great crowds that witnessed the sport j during the entire thirteen days furnished a striking testimonial of the popularity of rac- t ing here and the desire of Chicagoans to j, enjoy this greatest of outdoor sports here at r home. u For the farewell program the Illinois s Jockey Club provided six thoroughbred races s and a contest known as the Stockyards Han- j dicap, for cow ponies, ridden by their owners e in costume. t The Hearthstone Coal Company Handicap was the outstanding racing attraction. It g was for three-year-olds and over, under f claiming conditions, with a purse of 1,500 at t a distance of one mile and seventy yards. Cain and Sanford provided the winner in their crack Jim Gaffney gelding Harry B., which r scored his fifth straight victory of the meet- e ing. He was ridden by jockey E. Petzoldt, making the third winner of the day for that popular youngster. The field got away to a good start, with Jacobina setting the early pace and Harry B. close up and within strik- ing distance. Reaching the far turn Petz- t oldt called on the favorite and the son of j Jim Gaffney needed no urging. Dashing to 1 the front he quickly assumed a safe lead and was not menaced thereafter. Black Bet- ty closed an immense gap to finish second, j while Eulah F. had no serious opposition for the short end of the purse. , ANOTHER FOR CARLOS ENRIQUE. j Five youngsters faced the barrier in the 1 . opening race, at a distance of five and one-half furlongs. It resulted in a perfect, get- away and a well contested race throughout ; the short dash, with F. R. Irwins Carlos ! Enrique, ridden by J. Singleton, crossing the ! , winning line two lengths ahead of Great " Lady, from the G. Mohler establishment, under J. Kederis. The latter tired after reaching the stretch. Van Patrick, ridden by A. Trombley, from C. Irbys stable, was J the one to finish third. Delante stumbled 1 badly rounding the sixteenth turn or would 1 undoubtedly have finished farther up. The second race, for all ages, non-winners 3 at this meeting, with eleven starters, another r sprinting dash at five and a half furlongs, went to the clever Eddie Petzoldt, on Mark 1 Denunzio, from the B. F. McClain string. The boy was awarded a great ovation on his 3 return to the judges stand with his first t victory of the day. Harry Rudder, ridden i by J. Singleton, was a game-going second, i. while H. Clements brought Captain Burns up P with a rush to save the small end of the purse. Jack Fairman, a strong factor to the e stretch, tired badly from there on. BROTHER JOHN PROTES BEST. The field in the third race, a three-quarters s dash for three-year-olds and over, was the e largest of the day. Twelve horse paraded d to the barrier. Starter Miller sent them n away to a good start after a slight post delay " "caused by the fractious behavior of W. r- G. McClintock and Skeer Face. J. H. Pattersons Brother John proved the best here e and outlasted Batty H. under R. Doyle by y a three-length margin, with E. Petzoldt t bringign Arrow Point from behind to finish " third. Toy Miss showed some great speed d in the early running, but dropped back steadily 1- when challenged. Ring Rose was the e only other starter to offer contention and d this was short lived. A light rain began falling just before post 3t time for the fourth race, not enough, however, r- to have any effect on the great crowd. X demonstration lasting several minutes greeted jockey Petzoldt when he brought Lond in ahead of II. S. Jones on Piedra, while F. R. Irwins Money, eight-year-old son of Dick Finnell Metrical, was third, with Mary Reigel and Cremona distant followers at the end. S. Jones, represented by Cremona in this race, claimed Money from F. 11. Irwin for ,030. The Stock Yards Handicap, at a distance of half a mile, with eight of the choicest cow ponies from the Union Stock Yards of Chicago, furnished fully as much interest as any of the afternoons races. The "Yards" were well represented and the applause given the cow punchers lasted for fully ten minutes. A getaway fully as good as any thorough- ContinucJ on second page. j , i r t f s d j of ti CHICAGO RACING ENDS Continued from first page. bred group could furnish was accomplished. The time, 1:02, for the half-mile distance, however, showed a lacic of race track experience. Mickey the Man, owned by Thomas Tuite, and ridden by T. Quinn, was an easy victor over Tiptop, the top-weighted one of the field, while James. Quinn rode Casey to third place. The other ponies were trailing the leaders by several lengths at the end. Semi-darkness overshadowed the course for the running of the last race of the afternoon. Spectacular Girl, ridden by R. Doyle, captured it, with Madge F. second and Chris-tic Holters securing the smaller portion of the purse by a safe margin from Water Willow. Ike Weil, who owns Tip Toe Inn, denied the rumor that he scratched his mount in the first race for certain reasons. lice claims the mare developed a slight ailment to her ankle, and he will ship her tonight to Midway, Ky., to the Knuckles Farm, to be turned out for the year, and will be taken up next spring to fill all stake engagements for 1923. W. E. Burke arrived at Hawthorne Saturday morning to do missionary work in the interest of the new Dade Park track, near Henderson, Ky. He has secured the strings Al Austin, Milton Smith and A. F. Dayton.
