Impost of 130 Pounds SAX DIEGO Cal March 19 Beat Blanc Seing in the Kentucky Derby and take the money moneyThese These were the joyous remarks of William Daniel of Chicago proud owner of Blanc Seing as he witnessed his strapping colt triumph in the Tijuana Derby by a half a length over Harry Payne Whitneys Spot Cash CashBefore Before a crowd which filled every avail ¬ able space in the big Mexican course these two colts fought it out tooth and nail What a race it was A veritable gale blew during the afternoon and all thought of a track record being broken in the event was forgotten by the time the field of nine answered the call of the bugle Yet in the face of this high wind Blanc Seing won his victory in the good time of 152 which is but onefifth of a second slower than the mark held jointly by War Mask and Ten Buttons ButtonsHOW HOW DEKBY WAS IIUX IIUXThe The start was a good one with Knighthood which was coupled in the betting with Spot Cash and Tassel as the BostwickWhitney entry cutting out the pace Taking the first turn Knighthood led by an open length with Blanc Seing and Spot Cash next in attend ¬ ance By the time the halfmile post had been reached jockey Merimee who had been restraining Blanc Seing sent him to the front At his throatlatch raced Spot Cash with the crafty E Fator in the saddle Then the battle began Muzzle to muzzle raced these two gamesters Around the far turn and thcii into the stretch they came with Merimee hugging the inside rail and saving every inch of ground Down the straight ¬ away they thundered far in advance of their competitors Passing the paddock gate it appeared as if superior jockeyship would tell the tale But such was not the case Blanc Seing was being ridden admirably and so was Spot Cash Twenty yards out Blanc Seing seemed to put one supreme effort to his task and inch by inch he drew away from his opponent and passing the finishing line he showed a half a length to the good Spot Cash was easily second best being six lengths in front of Prince Tii Til which had little difficulty in passing the tiring Knight ¬ hood hoodBlanc Blanc Seing a chestnut son of Xorth Star III and Bed of Roses drew down the sum of 6325 as the winners share of the rich prize William Daniel in whose colors the horse races was elated over the colts game victory and remarked after the race that he has already placed a substantial wager in the future books on Blanc Seing to win the Kentucky Derby DerbyThunderous Thunderous as was the applause for the winner of the Derby it was but a faint echo to that which went up as Abadane passed the judges a winner in the seventh race a handicap at one mile and a quarter With 130 pounds as his crushing impost Abadane set the pace to run the distance in 2 as which equals the mark made by Breeze with 115 pounds several seasons back Abadanes laurels were gained after a most grueling struggle in which he was forced to a quarter mile drive to withstand the rush of the lightly weighted John Paul Jones The lat ¬ ter looked like a winner midway in the stretch but Abadane never flinched while being punished with whip and steels and at the end the best part of his shapely body showed to advantage over the eastern thor Continueil on twelfth pise BLANC SEINGS FINE RACE Continued from first page oughbred In winning yesterday Abadano scored his ninth straight
