HAVANA, Cuba, December 5. The Maryland-bred filly Little Black Sheep, that races under the colors of Harry Herdel, showed a good performance in the Camaguey Handicap at Oriental park this afternoon, when she beat a good band of sprinters at three-quarters of a mile, incidentally equalling the time made by Belle of Elizabeth-town the opening day, when the latter ran the distance in 1:12. The pace in todays race was very fast, the winner running the first five-eighths in :58. Thomas Monohans Cydonia was away first, made fast pace to the stretch run, where Little Black Sheep caught and passed him to win with speed in reserve. The winner was ridden by J. Callahan, who also had the mount on W. R. Coes Winnipeg, which won the first race. W. R. Coes colors were carried to an easy victory in the inaugural dash, when the Polymelian colt Winnipeg led all the way, to beat Miss Mazie by two lengths. Winnipeg was an odds-on choice and sprinting away into the lead with the rise of the barrier, never had any serious opposition. Miss Mazie ran a splendid race to finish second, being outrun to the last eighth, where she came from last place with a dazzling burst of speed. W. F. Knebelkamps San Pablo was the favored one in the second race and while he was returned winner his backers had several anxious moments in the last eighth when the unconsidered Heliocross appeared extremely dangerous. In fact, the latter just failed to get up by inches, closing a big gap and gaining on the leader with every stride. McDermotts strong finish saved the day for the Knebelkamp horse. There was nothing thrilling about the third race, Runnan, from the stable of N. IC Moody, easily accounting for it after Mambi tired from early pacemaking. SUNSINI IN LOIELTGIIT. The Sun Briar colt Sunsini scored another triumph here when he came right back and captured the fourth race this afternoon, a two-year-old dash of five-eighths of a mile, I i His performance today was indeed a meri- J torious one, for he was outrun to the stretch, j where he was taken to the outside and forced I wide. However, overcoming these difficul- j j ties, he finished with great speed and after j I wresting the lead from Wawona easily drew clear at the end. The latter was the public choice and appeared the winner in the stretch, but tired after taking the lead and was no match for the Kilmer-bred youngster. Williams Bros, provided the winner of the concluding dash of the afternoon in the veteran Sun God, which made it a double for the meeting. He was the pronounced choice and won accordingly, scoring by six lengths, with Wakefield second and Harry M. Stevens third. A. L.
