May 2.— Sarazen. the three-year-old son of High Time and Hush Box that races under the silks of Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt III.s Fair Stable, tasted defeat for the first time in the three-quarters of the Lynnbrook Handicap at Jamaica today. It was the Rancocas Stables Bracadale that took his measure with an advantge of eight pounds in the weights. It was a race that will undoubtedly cause something of a slump in the estimate of the fast gelding for his chance in the Kentucky Herby, but it is a race that should not be taken too seriously, for he was ridden with poor judgment by Clarence Kummer. who had the mount. From a good start Kummer had Sarazen away in front, but he almost at once eased hack and was panned by both Brainstorm and Bracadale. Through the back stretch Kummer continued to wait with the son of High Time while both Brainstorm and Braca- dale continued to speed along In front of him. It may be that Kummer was overcon-Meat, or that he had forgotten that the stretch at Jamaica is a short one, but it would seem that he would have obtained a better result by going on with Sarazen when he had an advantage at the start. At the head of the stretch, Bracadale had headed Brainstorm, coming to the outside of the older horse. Through the stretch he drew away. In the meantime Kummer had come around to the outside with Sarazen and under a drive he disposed of Brainstorm, but | ho was a length and a quarter back of the I Rancocas stable colt. Brainstorm saved third well lapped on ; Sarazen while it was Benjamin Blocks Now i Orleans performer Thorndalo that was fourth.

Loscalzos Houri got the best of the jockey, M. Fator, and ran away a mile before "Red Coat" Murray captured her. Following a good start, Kessner rushed Miss Cameo to the front and quickly opened a long lead. Exalted Ruler, which had raced in a forward position, ran out entering the stretch. Miss Cameo bore out through the straight! but had a wide advantage at the end. Lady Boss closed resolutely and held on with good courage. Venus finished fast to be third. BOXTALD XARROWI.Y. It was a rattling finish came out of the five and a half furlongs that was second on the card when Frank J. Farrells Bontaud just lasted to score from the Greentre Stables The Vintner, while James Butlers Noon Fire beat Frank E. Browns Aragon for third. Bontaud showed a coming lash of speed to be the winner, but he was favored by the racing luck tltat came to some of the others McAtee had him away running and hustled him until he was well clear of his company, swinging over to the inside when there was room to cross. Aragon was slightly outrun at the start and it proved fatal to his chances. lie bad the inside position and when the ethers came over he was crowded next to the rail and shuffled back until he was last of the field rounding out of the hnchstretch. Noon Fire, under the weak riding of Anderson, also met with some interference. At the head of the stretch Bontaud was tiring badly and The Vintner was coming with a great rush, but McAtee kept the Farrell gelding going long enough to have him winner. After all his early misfortune Aragon worked his way up on the inside until he had reached third place in the Stretch, but that took so much out of him that he weakened right at the end to lose third to Noon Fir. . Sam Hildreth upset some well laid plans ia the second, a five and a half furlong dash, that was the third offering when he saddled Finn Lag from the Rancocas Stable. it was generally agreed that Mino, of the Oak-ridge Stable, had the purse at his mercy, but Finn Lag outran him all the way to be home an easy winner. Mino saved second place and George Ghoos Feysun saved third. It was a good start and Feysun was first to show at the start, but he was quickly outrun by both Finn Las and Mino and the pair of them dominated the running for the rest of the way. Through the stretch Clarence Turner drove Mino furiously, but to no avail and Finn Lag was home winner by live lengths in the remarkably fast time of 1:05, while some watches made it even faster. The race was one to show that Finn Lag is at least a remarkably fast sprinter and he may go on to even better things. Sergeant A. Sw. tikes New York racing debut, was an auspicious one and he was winner of the fifth race which was under claiming conditions at a mile and a sixteenth when Rock Bottom had a wide margin at the end. Kdward Cray was the oat to race to second place while Insulate was third. There was no time lost at the barrier and from a good start Cork Kim was the one to establish the running. He was pressed by Rock Bottom, while Kdward Cray wa* racing in third position. There was no change in the running position, until the Stretch turn was reached, and it was here that Cnsnsg, astride the ultimate winner, made his move.
