TWO FOR TULLETT STABLE Ikey T. and Joella J. Carry Its Colors to Victory at Tijuana. W. Pools Superior Horsemanship Responsible for Ikey T.s Success General rnbllc Has Profitable Afternoon. SAN DIEGO, Cal., December 3. Tarn OShanter Stable, of which Herbert "Ikey" Tullett is the guiding spirit, scored a double yesterday at Tijuana when their Ikey T., named after Mr. Tullett, and Joella J. were home first in the first and fourth races of the afternoon. In taking first honors in the feature race, a dash of four and a half furlongs, Ikey T.s victory was primarily due to the superior horsemanship on the part of his rider, jockey Willie Pool, the horses margin at the finishing post being but a matter of inches, and even to a nervous spectator it was apparent that Dick Terpin, which finished in second place, was much the better horse. Dick Tor-pin was ridden by jockey Cantrell, a rider of but little experience, and when it came to a driving finish Pool made his rival pilot look like an amateur. Indeed, when Cantrell went to the whip he was more of a hindrance than a help to his mount, with the result that Ikey T. showed his muzzle in front as he passed the finishing post. The two-year-old filly Joella J., with jockey Ralls in the saddle, turned in a speedy performance when she won the fourth race, at five and a half furlongs, in the fast time of 1:0S. Her victory was a hollow one, as she finished alone lengths to the good from Harry D. and Romulus. Soon after the barrier arose a jam took place, in which the winner was sharply shut off. Rail was forced to take his mount up to escape going down. For a moment it appeared as if the winning chances of the filly had gone aglim-mering. However, she quickly settled into her stride and racing up to Harry D., the I leader, she passed him in the stretch easily and from there on the result was assured. The track was heavy, but this did not deter the favorites from winning six out of the seven races carded. It was a great day for the form followers, and those who played Continued oa twelfth page.

Neg started the talent off to a good start in the initial dash when he bested the long shot Merry Lass by a head, with Count Boris taking third money. The public choice Al Porter failed his backers in the second, at five and a half furlongs, the winning end of the purse going to Ollie Wood, while the gray mare Vera Rita took Al Porters measure by a nose. After that, however, there was an avalanche of good fortune for those who wagered on favorites, as Torsida, at odds-on ; Joella J., Ikey T., Yermak and Cavalcadour IL, all heavily backed choices, won with clocklike regularity. Jockeys W. Pool and C. Ralls were tied for riding honors during the afternoon, each riding two winners. The matron Picaninny was represented by two winners Saturday when Joella J. and Ikey T. were unsaddled in the winners ring. Jockey Eddie Duggan, who a few years ago was one of the leading riders of America, started galloping horses yesterday morning in an effort to get into shape within the next ten days. Duggan, who was held a captive in Russia for three years, intends resuming his saddle work within the next ten days. He has been granted a license by the stewards of the Tijuana Jockey Club.
