: , THREE SUCCESSES IN ROW j Hullo Scores Third Straight Victory of Havana Meeting. e Kitty Carpenter in Sensational Finish Triumphs Over Cliincotcaguc and Kendall 1 Dissolve Partnership. HAVANA, Cuba, January 16. Hullo, the six-year-old mare by Huon Some Kid, by Boanerges, carrying the silks of F. Gardner, scored her third straight victory of the meeting when she accounted for the fourth race at Oriental Park this afternoon. Strange that both Glcnlivet and Title found more admirers in a betting way, but this did not discourage the mare or Pickens, her rider. , The latter kept a tight hold on his mount when Rapid Stride dashed away into the lead and never made a move until reaching the , stretch. Released from restraint the mare quickly dashed away in front and, increasing her lead all through the last eighth, was six lengths in advance of Title as she crossed the winning line. A close finish came with the running of the fifth race, resulting in a sensational victory for Kitty Carpenter, with Chincoteague and Kendall second and third respectively, the trio separated by a matter of inches. Chincoteague set the early pace, then gave way to Kendall when the latter challenged in the stretch. The latter, however, tired with victory in sight and, Kitty Carpenter coming from the rear with giant strides, finished on the outside of the leaders and got her head in front just as the trio flashed past the judges stand, the result being in doubt until the official placing was announced. The six-year-old Celt mare Fluff was at home in the heavy going and easily scored in the opening dash. There were eleven starters in this race and diversified opinion as to the probable winner. Memphis, under the alert veteran of the saddle, Arthur Pickens, was away first, but relinquished his lead after going a half, when Fluff took command. She quickly increased her advantage and was never in danger thereafter, winning eased up. Justina E. was second, outstaying Rey Ennis in a hard drive with the next three horses close by and finishing gamely. The second race was decided in the almost identical manner that marked the first, the winner. Armistice, scoring in a canter and the following four having a battle royal for the minor portions of the purse. Berretta set the pace to the stretch, but when Armistice challenged, tired and the old son of Disguise drew clear to win by five lengths. Mrs. Gardner scored another victory for L. F. OLeary when she beat a band of horses of her own age today in the three-quarters of the third race. She was favorite, though there was considerable support for Plaid. The latter lost whatever chance she may have had by getting away absolutely last and was unable to improve her position. The winner was away none too well herself, but she worked her way up on the outside and, overtaking Georgia May at the head of the stretch, wrested the lead from the pacemaker and easily drew clear to score by a safe margin. Georgia May tired badly from excessive use in the early racing. John W. Pangle and A. C. Niehaus have severed their racing partnership. Pangle will train his own horses in the future. He has sold Kirk Dress to G. C. Clement and Plaid to L. C. Everett April was added to his own string.
