Brainstorm, Sennings Park and Mad Hatter in a Thrilling Finish Tall Timber Wins the Rcmsen Handicap. . 9 JAMAICA, N. Y., October 14. Henry Wat-ersons Brainstorm again demonstrated his great improvement in the mile and an eighth the Continental Handicap. Under a workmanlike ride by little E. Bell he nosed Sennings Park out at Jamaica today. It was the closing feature of the meeting of the Metropolitan Jockey Club and proved one of the best races run all the year. It was worth ?4,750 to the winner. Back of Sennings Park the old campaigner Mad Hatter was less than half-length away, while Horologe was a distant last of the four that raced. For the last day of the Jamaica meeting there was an immense crowd out. The track was fast, but the weather was a bit chilly and there was scant sunshine. The sport was top notch and altogether it was an enjoyable closing of the meeting. A companion piece to the Continental Handicap was the Remsen Handicap at three-quarters for two-year-olds. This afforded Richard T. Wilsons Tall Timber, the homebred son of Campfire and Pixy, another chance to show his good class. Under the top weight of 119 pounds he was one of the easiest winners of the day. In the running of the Continental Handicap the lightly weighted Horologe set a fast early pace. McAtee permitted him to race into a good early lead and Brainstorm was saved back of him by Bell, with Sennings Park third and Mad Hatter bringing up the rear. Sandc had Mad Hatter under steady restraint for the first half mile and made no effort to go to the leaders. It was when leaving the backstretch that there was a closing up on the leader and Brainstorm joined him before the stretch was reached. Sennings Park moved at the same, time and when Sande shook up Mad Hatter he was forced to come exceedingly wide around three horses to find racing room. For a time the big brown closed up on the leaders gallantly, but the stretch was too short and a sixteenth from home Sande : pulled his whip. The son of Fair Play came from behind, but it was too late, and though he was going better than the other two, , third was his portion. In the meantime Sen- nings Park and Brainstorm were fighting it out on the inside Horologe having dropped back beaten. Bell was sitting tight and 1 Brainstorm was giving his best, but Sennings Park, next to the rail, was making a bitter fight. At the end they were so closelv lapped that many were of the opinion 1 that Semiings Park had been first, but only Continued on second page. - 1 ti y hl tli u, eAr end A in S se had lost He II JAMAICA MEETINGS CLOSE Continued from first page. those on the line could split them out. It was a smashing finish between three good horses and a fitting finish for a Vosburgh handicap. Richard T. Wilsons Tall Timber gave further evidence of his good class when he was an easy winner of the Remsen Handicap, under the top weight of 119 pounds. At the he was a full three lengths ahead of Aladdin, the lightweight of the party, carrying 10G pounds, while William DanieFs Blane Seing was a distant third. The field was sent away with no delay and Butwell, who come from Laurel to ride Tall Timber, no time in taking his mount to the front. rushed him along until he was well clear from his opponents, and once there he set a hot pace that had the others struggling in the first eighth. Saving ground on all turns there was no time that the son of Olambala was even threatened. Aladdin raced second most of the way and finished resolutely, having put Amor Patriae away at the head of the stretch. Blanc Seing did not have the best of luck, but saved ground on the stretch turn and was going well at the end. As for Osprey, he was forced to race wide on the first turn and there both he and Best Love met with some interference. The Belmoni colt raced ten lengths farther than anything else in the race. Both Mr. and Mrs. Wilson and Mr. and Mrs. Belmont were in the paddock watching the saddling of their colts. There was some slight delay about going to the post, caused by Amor Patriae having lost one of his hind plates on the way to the paddock. He had to be plated after he had arrived there. The race was worth ,125 to the winner. Will Dugans speedy little filly Leghorn was the winner of the second race and at the end she had to be ridden out to take the measure of Sea Mint, while Vulcain Park was rather a distant third. The other starters were Scotland Yet and The Roll Call. Merimee rode a wonderfully patient nice on Leghorn, but he saved ground with her on all the turns and then was lucky to find his way through on the inside in the stretch. Scotland Yet cut out most of the running and Fator had her under restraint as she raced along in front. Sea Mint chased afterr her and in the early running Vulcain Park also was showing the way to Leghorn. Merimee sat still on the winner until at the head of the stretch. There when an opening was offered on the inside he shot her through Scotland Yet quit badly, but Sea Mint was not through and the filly had to outgame him in a drive to win by a neck. Vulcain Park had little trouble beating the tiring Scotland Yet for third money. Herbert Sumpter, who was made the recipient of a considerable donation from the Turf Aid Society, sent his thanks to the society from St. Lukes hospital, where he is confined. E. J. Tranter of the Fasig-Tipton Company is back from a short visit to Lexington. He announced that his company would conduct a sale of horses in training at the Empire City track October 21. J.
