RIDES TWO WINNERS Jockey Brothers Prominent in Wednesdays Havana Racing. 4 Scores Easily With Long Green in, the Opener, but Has Tough Job Landing Shingle Shack. HAVANA, Cuba, Jan. 30. Jockey T. Brothers was in the limelight at Oriental Parle this afternoon, riding two winners. In tho opener he scored easily with Long Green, but had a hard time of it in the fourth to land Shingle Shack home first. The fourth race was at one mile and seventy yards and seven faced the starter, with Shingle Shack the favorite. Brothers took him to the front with the rise of the barrier: and kept him close to the inner rail, enabling-the son of Hcno to save much ground. This helped considerably when the pinch came, for though tiring badly in the deep going, Brothers managed to hold him together long-enough to earn a close decision from tho. fast finishing Weinland. The latter, was gaining with every stride ; too late, however, to change the result. Brothers success on Long Green was easily achieved. "While Scamper and Monopoly were racing each other into defeat setting tho pace, Long Green was saved next to the inner rail until the stretch turn wa.s readied, where the son of Luke McLuko challenged the leaders. After a brief tusslo he moved on by them and drew clear to win. by five lengths at the end. The veteran Riposta again attempted to win by showing the way in the second race, but after leading to the last eighth gave way to Phenol and Mart OHara and finished, third. She first disposed of Riposta and then gamely and successfully withstood tho great rush of Mart OHara, which closed a. big gap, but just failed to get up. Old Pomerene was in a running mood today and perfectly at home in the going. Tho result was that he led all the way in tho third race, never seriously menaced and always master of the situation. He won eased up, with Berretta second and Ella C. third. There was one of those finishes that pleaso the general run of racegoers in the milo and fifty yards of the fifth race, when Littio Ed came from last place to draw clear and win by a length. Little Eds chances did not look bright in the first half, as he began slowly and wan far back. His rider did not become discouraged, however, and, taking his mount to the outside, the old Norfolk gelding began to move up steadily. "When llio stretch was reached Asa Jewell, Ponce and Bonnie Jack, which had been fighting it out from the start, showed signs of distress and Little Ed soon drew up on even terms with them. After a sharp brush with Asa Jewell. Little Ed assumed command and won going away. .
