F. Whitney in Juvenile Races Sparkling Finish in Fourth Race. , . HAVANA, Cuba, Jan. IS. The mile and a sixteenth of the fifth race was expected to furnish the principal contest of Fridays program at Oriental Park. What it did was to provide quite an ipset when Hucn and Hercules, the most favored ones in a speculative way, failed to finish in the money. The winner came from the stable of H. Warner War Fox, which led all the way by .1 wide gap, never seriously menaced. Montillo, close up from the start, outgamed old Blazonry in a spirited battle for second honors. Hercules failed to show any speed and Huon appeared lame going to the post. There came a break in the E. F. Whitney luck in the juvenile race of the day when tho quarter mile dash fell to Dextrose, a Cuban-bred daughter of Sir Edgar and Himel Trude, that races for the Rosario Stable and is trained by J. J. McCafferty. C. LavellyS Rosita was second, and then tho Whitney pair, The Creole and Tea Fight, were third and fourth, respectively. It was a maiden affair that brought together a dozen starters and the success that has attended the Whitney two-year-olds made it natural that they attracted most oC the attention before the running. Woodstock had The Creole away quickly, but Dextrose, showing a great flash of early speed, rushed by her to open up a lead of four or fivo lengths in the first eighth. Williams hustled the Cuban miss along all the way and thero never was a time that her lead was threatened, to have her winner by three lengths. TEA FIGHT DOES WELL. Rosita, The Creole and Tea Fight finished closely lapped in the order named and at the end Tea Fight was closing so fast that she probably would have been second in another sixteenth. It was the first start for the daughter of Tea Caddy and she is suro to improve over this showing. As for Tho Creole, she did not seem to have any excuse. The second offering was a three-quartern dash for platers, and Jack Frost proved best when he led home Toy Along and Wein-land. In this The Girl showed a flash oC speed leaving the barrier, but Smite and Jack Frost were right after her and she was all through at the end of three-eighths. Jack Frost then readily shook off Smite, to corao on and score easily by two lengths. Toy Along had been outrun to the stretch, but there he closed with a rush and outgamed Weinland, to take second place by a length. Miriam Cooper was an easy winner of the third, another three-quarters dash, but it was only in the last eighth that she caught Quiet. The latter maintained a two-lengths lead until well into the stretch and McLaughlin was content to wait back of him with tho Shean entry. Then in the last eighth, as Quiet faltered, Miriam Cooper romped home, to win going away by seven lengths. Lo-danzky, after holding third place until well into tho stretch, quit badly to finish far back, while Melba Polly outgamed Crimson Rambler for third money. . FOUR SEPARATED 1JY INCHES. One of the best finishes of the day came out of the fourth race, when Miss Liberty, Whip-poorwill, Gupton, St. Just and Armedee wero all in close order. Whippoorwill was the ono to show the way in the early stages and Williams hustled him into a two-lengths lead before the stretch was reached. There Miss Liberty, which had been running second all tho way, moved up and, after a hard fight, headed him to win by half a length. Right at his tail Squire Wiggins just nosed out Gupton and only a nose further back camo St. Just, with Armedee at his saddle skirts. P. L. Griffin of the Eagle Bond and Share Company is among the recent arrivals, Charles Fitzmorris, former chief of po-i lice of Chicago, arrived here, accompanied by Alex Turner of New York and George Goertz. of Chicago. S. Fullerton Weaver, a New York archi-e tect, is here from Florida to spend a few days. C. Louis Kaufman of Cincinnati is also a visitor. He is the guest of Jacob C. Henshcimer of New Yorlc.
