DOUBLE FOR MAX HIRSCH On Watch Completes It When He Wins Chincoteague Handicap. Secondary Attraction to Paul Jones Moon-raker Scores Again Pilgrim a Disappointment. - LAUREL, Md., October 17. The Chinco-tagcau Handicap was the outstanding attraction of an ordinary card at Laurel Park this afternoon. It gave trainer Max Hirsch an opportunity to complete a double when G. W. Lofts good racer On Watch was the winner from G. W. J. Bissells Cham-plain, with Harry Payne Whitneys Woodland third. Tho race, for all ages and non-winners since October 2; brought out a field of five through the entry box, but The Wanderer was withdrawn. On Watch was accorded the bulk of the support in the wagering, while Champlain was not without his supporters. The winner was ridden by Marinelli and followed the early pace established by the Bissell starter until well straightened out in the stretch, where he went to the front to win drawing clear. Woodland was racing in third position on the inner rail in the first part and when the diminutive J. Thomas attempted to go through on the inside he was blocked and forced to take up, but the lad never left the rail and had a head margin over Despair for the short end of the purse. There was a return to warm weather at Laurel Park this afternoon and a crowd of i large proportions journeyed to the course to witness the racing. The track was in splendid condition and the stoutly supported choices were on the whole successful. Of secondary importance was the race at one mile, under allowance conditions, and the J. S. Cosden stable furnished the winner in Paul Jones, defeating G. L. Goodacres Rubidium, with S. L. Lurchs .Pilgrim third. The winner was ridden by Lang and, after passing Kcllerman, drew away into a safe lead and was never threatened. Pilgrim was accorded extensive support, but performed in a disappointing manner, and his poor race may be attributed to the fact that he was unloaded from the van but a few minutes before saddling time. Jockey Langs inability to keep Golden Rule from going wide at the top of the stretch deprived the Cosden Stable from completing a double, the Greentree Stables Moonraker being tho winner, while Golden Rule came again and got up in the final stride to earn a nose verdict from Comixa for second place. GRAY COLT SUCCESSFUL. The first portion of the Hirsch-Marinelli double occurred when Vanderburg, a gray colt, was winner from a band of non-winners at five and a half furlongs, while Soggarth Aroon took second place from Druid Hill by a scant nose. The Maryland Racing Commission has adopted this resolution in the case of F. Boughsman : "The ruling of the commission adopted September 21, 1021, expelling F. Boughsman from all tracks in Maryland was rescinded in view of the apology made by Mr. Boughsman and his promise that hereafter his conduct on the race tracks would be above reproach." Trainer Henry McDaniel received word from Kemplands Farm, Ky., that the stallions Damrosch, Boniface and the ten brood mares which were shipped from here had arrived there in good condition. E. E. Watson arrived from Kenilworth Park with the horses of E. J. Morrow, including Stoto and Betty J. R. E. Potts claimed Royal Duck from C. N. Freeman after his winning race yesterday for ,075 and A, Alexandra took Clansman from S. Louis for ?4,102. Jockey F. Keogh returned from New York this morning and will resume riding at this point. Trainer J. Fitzsimmons reported this morning that he has nine yearlings at Aqueduct for the Quincy Stable and all have been given their preliminary lessons in racing. This stable will be wintered at Aqueduct in one of the new winter barns which were constructed this spring.
