SUPREMACY AT TIJUANA C. B. Irwin Seems Destined to Again Head List of Owners. Three Out of Four Starters from His Stable "Win Tuesday English Marc Cara-bosse Arrives from Tanforan. 1 i SAN DIEGO, Cal., December 20. Is C. B. Irwin, the ambidextrous turfman from Cheyenne, Wyo., destined to again head the list of winning owners at Tijuana, a feat he has accomplished for the past three years? It would seem to be the case if his recent string of victories is a forerunner of what is yet to come. This western owner is a believer in the motto of running them "early and often," and a good measure of success seems to have been his reward. His stable does not embrace a galaxy of stake horses, but to the contrary his extensive string comprises many runners of the plater variety. He does not baby them, but sends them after purses with a great regularity and an afternoons program that does not contain the name of Irwin is a rarity. Tuesday he saddled four thoroughbreds and had the extreme satisfaction of seeing three of them returned winners. These were Harry Rudder in the opener ; Herder in tlie fourth, and Regreso in the sixth. Harry Rudder accomplished his victory, thanks to the superior riding of jockey D. Hurn. The latter clearly outrode the midget rider W. Martin, who was astride of Vera Rita, the gray mare from the Stanfield barn. Fifty yards out it appeared as if Vera Rita had the race won, but Hurn, on Harry Rudder, kept at his task with the result that his mount came on again and, in an extremely close finish, got the nod by a matter of inches. Herder was much the best in the fourth and simply cantered in front of Red Man and July Fly. In this race tlie start was delayed some little time by the fractious behavior of Red Man, Starry Banner and Angela. However, starter Morrissey patiently awaited his opportunity to catch the unruly field in a cpuiet mood, but missed his mark and the runners were away somewhat straggling. OLD REGRESO LUCKY. Old Regreso was a lucky horse to win the sixth at a mile and seventy yards. As the barrier arose he was caught in a jam and for a moment it looked as if his chances of winning were slight indeed. However, jockey Martinez roused him into his stride at once and by the time the backstretch was reached he proved gamest and was up with the leaders. Coming around the stretch he. reached out and at the end won by the best part of a length from Wise Judge and Argento. Dr. Johnson continued his winning ways when he was home first to an easy victory in the fifth race at three-quarters of a mile. Jockey Claver roele him faultlessly and at no time was he seriously menaced. He passed the judges with the J. K. L. Ross rider having him under restraint in front of Little Florence and Coca Cola. It was a summerlike day, a hot sun beating down from out of a clear sky. Its warm rays worked wonders with the track and as Continued on twelfth pnge. Q tl tl t c o of t o t c c s a f r.

With continued sunshine it will be only a matter hours before the track becomes fast. The English mare Carabcsse, queen of the Northwestern Canadian racing, arrived here this morning from Tanforan. The daughter of Fairy King and Cyrene showed herself to be a mare of redoubtable class at Vancouver during the last summer. Under crushing imposts she won her last three starts, in one of which she ran a mile and an eighth over a mile and a half track in the fast time of 1 :52 2-5. Carabosse is here ex-pdessly to keep her engagements in the 0,-000 Coffroth and the ,000 Tijuana Cup. W. G. Jenkins will introduce to the Tijuana racing public Ivan Parke, a youthful brother of jockey Burley Parke. The lad has been galloping horses for the last six months and has shown much saddle promise. Jockey Willie Pool, who recently was operated on for an attack of appendicitis, was out on the track working horses this morning. Poole announced that he will resume riding in races Saturday. "Kim" Patterson, well-known eastern trainer, was one of the arrivals yesterday. Word was received here that jockey Bert Pinnegar, who has been confined to his bed in Kingman, Arizona, suffering from tuberculosis, is not expected to live throughout the clay. L. L. Allen, owner of the speedy colt Dick Terpin, refused an offer of ?3,000 for the youngster, made by Earl Linnell. Some forty yearlings were schooled to the barrier Tuesday morning, the majority cf them breaking away. Starter Morrissey reports that the most of the baby racers here have good barrier manners and are ready to be sent to the races starting January 1. Eddie Dugan has been engaged to ride the two-year-olds that the Meadowbrook Stable will send postward after the first of the year. These youngsters are all by the im- ported sire War Shoot, now standing at Wal-t nut Creek, Cal. C. Shafer one of the active members of the racing firm of Shafer and Conway, departed for his home in Kansas City to spend the holidays. Before bidding trainer J. J. Duggan good-by he presented him with a check for 50 as a Christmas present.
