April 30.— For the second day of the New York racing season at the Jamaica track, the conditions were as disagreeable as could be well imagined. All I afternoon a cold raw wind blew over the course, which was sloppy from the rain of | Tuesday. Then there were several cold showers during the afternoon and it took plenty of courage to enjoy the sport. The program ■ was rather an off one. but some good con-i tests resulted. The best offering of the afternoon was the Springfield, a five and half j furlongs condition race for three-year-olds I and over and it marked the first Rancocas Stable victory of the year when Tester, ridden by Earl Sande, outfinished the Greentree Stables The Vintner, with the four-year-old filly Miss Cerina beating Richard T. Wil- ! sons Ormesvale for third. The only other starter was the Quincy Stables Ed Eowe. In the running. Tester proved himself a I handy sort, for he was under 121 pounds and ! giving away great lumps of weight to each starter. The Vintner was rushed into a t gcod early lead, but Sande was content to I rate Tester along back of him through th-* early stages while Miss Cerina went along . with him. Ormesvale. after his good showing I at Belmont Park against Eanius. did not , have the same speed and he was outrun from the start. I SANDE SHOWS OLD SKILL. Making his move cleverly after the turn for home Sande brought Tester to the Green-I tree Stable colt and, under a nice snuggling I hand ride, had him winner and going away. Miss Cerina tired slightly in the final pinch, while Ormesvale ran below his recent form. Henry Starks Fredericktown. a New Orleans performer, was winner of the three-I quarters for the three-year-old platers that I was the third offering, and it was one of the best finishes of the day when he out-gamed Buck Pond in a long stretch drive. i E. J. Careys Pathan, another from New Orleans, was rather a distant third, with Charles E. Thieriots Delmor fourth. Buck Pond was alert at the barrier and quickly went into a good lead, with Burke hustling him at every stride. Fredericktown had been shuffled back as he left and I elnior also began slowly. Thunderbolt was rushed in the early stages and used up in an effort to catch Bank Pond, while PrederiehtWB made up his ground more gradually on the outside. Headed for home Fredericktown was right after Buck Pond, but as he drew alongside the pacemaker hung on resolutely, and it was only after a long drive that the Gram-tree Stable cast-off put him away. Pathan and Delmor followed, as has already been told. The colors of Charles A. Stoneham. were carried to the second victory of the meeting when the odds-on choice Monday .Morning, lidden by jockey C. Fairbrother. iliiwilaah fl the running throughout the first race. W. A. Rosens Aladdin was the one to finish m cond, while T. C. Sawyers Belcrtiaa was third. A field of nine accepted conditions and there was no delay at the barrier. Fair-bi other had Mmh1.iv Morning away well and before the first sixteenth of a mile iiaj been covered, he had thoroughly beaten Ege. From then on to the finish, he never gave his supporters any cause to worry. Aladdin dosed some ground to be second, while Belcross was a forward factor all the way. EASY 1 OH WILD ASTKR. Wild Aster, a three-year-old gelded son of Fltimus Illume, racing for the Greentree Stable, was an easy winner of the second race of the afternoon, fashioned for maiden three-year-olds and over. The Bancocns Stables Honor was the one to « base him home while R. E. Gerrys Prim Minist -r was third. There was little to the running of the I race, which was over the live and a half furlong distance. Wild Aster was the quick- est to begin and he quickly drew away into I a long lead and at no stasje. left the ultimate result in doubt. Prime Minister attempted to keep up with him but found the pace too fast. and at the end. gave way to Honor. The , latter came through on the inside at the I stret h turn and finished resolutely under ] punishment. .1. 1-. Kichardsons Normal accounted for his fifth consecutive victory when be was up I in the closing strides to earn a nose vietory from T. II. Wilsons Wat. r Girl, while Dan Boiling, from the S.

Water Gill had no excuses in the running and assumed command when rounding the far turn and at the end hung I Ion with good courage.

The Belair Stud showed a shifty filly in Beatrice, a daughter of Jim Gaffney — Medora II.. and from a slow beginning she was returned winner of the closing race, which was fashioned for two-year-old fillies. Ne-dana. from the Raneocas Stable, raced to second place, while J. S. Cosdens Imagination was third. The winner was stoutly supported and from a slow start she closed an immense gap and was drawing clear at the end Imagination outbroke her opponents, but began to bear out at the end. Nedana finished fast on the inside. Friday in the Jamaica paddock C. F. Hill will conduct an auction of horses in training from the Estate of P. E. Moller. One that will go under the hammer is Modo, one that raced with a fair measure of success for George Odom, Mr. Hill promises to be his own auctioneer and there is real interest in the sale. Trainer Alec Gordon leaves for Pimlico this evening to supervise the final trial of Mr. Mutt for his engagement in the running of the l ixie Stakes at that point. He will b accompanied by jockey J. M.-rimee. Nellie Morse will also be given a trial the same day. and her debut will be in the Pimlico Oaks. P.oth Mr. Mutt and Nellie Morse have been working well at the Baltimore course. The pair were sent a mile and a quarter and eased up in 2:09: the first mile in 1:41%. Trainer J. Edwards of the EL Waterson Stable reports that the two-year-old Ixilita by l ick Finnell Fan Tan had bowed slight-lv and Candy Maker another two-year-old by the same sire — dam. Sweeter than Sugar — had the firing irons applied.
