H. P. WHITNEYS SILKS I » Carried to Victory in Montauk Claiming Stakes Sande on Three Winners, Two for Rancocas — Normal Scores Sixth Straight Success ♦ mCW YORK. It Y.. May 5.— For a Monday feature at Jamaica the offering of the Metropolitan Jockey Club was the Montauk Stakes, a five and a half furlong dash for juveniles of the selling plater variety. It resulted in rather an easy victory for Maud Muller. an undersized daughter of Pennant and Truly Rural that races for Harry Payne Whitney. The raee was worth ,500 to the winner. The other races of the day were thoroughly | interesting and. as a matter of fact, better entertainment came out of the three-quarters sprint, in which the Rancocas Stables Sherman scored a victory over A. J. Contentos Miss Cerina. The weather was bright and the track in Rood i ondition. resulting in a crowd of goodly proportions being on hand. In the Montauk, Maud Muller was largely j responsible for a considerable delay at the , post, hut the start was a good one and Maud Muller was away running. Stampdale, racing for A. C. Blakely, and one that came on i from Tijuana, was the one to go after her, | and they soon drew out until the others j had scant chance to catch them. Pedagogue, : j the Rancocas Stable starter, saved ground , a. the head of the stretch and closed courageously j in the last eighth to take third, j ! but he did not threaten the first two and I j Maud Muller was an easy winner from ! . Staiipdale. I .Normal, the bad-legged plater that races for Mack" Richardson, won his sixth con-si j .-utive race under a masterly ride by I I Sande. He came out of the running de- ! ! cidedly lame, but that is not new for the ! son of Plaudit, and it may be that Richardson will bring him back again. SHKRMAVS FAST FINISH. It was a good finish that came with the i running of the Cumberland Purse when the , Rancocas Stables Sherman, under a well J I timed ride by Raverne Fator got up to win j from A. .1. Contentos Miss Cerina while Rival, a stablemate of Sherman, was a re- i ! markably close third with the younger Fator j I in the saddle. This was a race to suggest that Sherman should have beaten Cano in their meeting one day last week. Little time was lost at the barrier and Rival wa-s most alert leaving the post. Miss Cerina went with him and was alongside, in a few strides, while Pry Moon WH show- | ing the way to the others, but unable to hold his position. Sherman was not hurried through the early running but on the turn out of the baokstretch, he had headed 1 ry Moon and was gaining on the front two. Miss t.rina hung to Rival gamely and they were still closely lapped with the colt on the inside as the turn for home was negotiated. P.y that time Sherman was right at the heels of the pacemakers and when he was swung outside of them, he quickly drew alongside. Rurns was driving Miss Cerina furiously while M. Fator was in rather cl se quarters with Rival. Sherman continued to draw up until just at the end, he hail Miss Cerina beaten by something more than a h-ngth. while the filly just beat Rival for second place. BKI.AT AT THE POST. W. A. Rosens Aladdin, ridden by jockey Sande, was winner of the fifth race, which engaged a band of ten platers at a mile and seventy ards. Q. C. Winfreys Mom was the one to race to second place, while T. H. Wilsons Water Cirl was third. The start was delayed several minutes by the fractious b. havior of Aladdin and Mom but when the Ntart eame, the field left in good alignment. Sjjfcie hustled Aladdin to the front, rating liWblone; under slight restraint and never left the ultimate result in doubt. Mom raced in etooest pursuit :md made a determined *« id at the stretch turn but was not good enough, although through the final eighth she was doing her best to stall off the rush of Water Girl .lot key Karl Sande completed a double for the Rancocas stable when he landed Honor 1. me a winner of the last race, which en-e,.:ged a bulky band of maidens.

The Saratoga stakes closed Monday and a bigger entry list than ever was received. The Riviera Stable accounted for its tirst purse of the rear when jockey C.

Wildrake was the one to establish the early running and Puck Pond went along with him, but on the outside. Wildrake, continued to show the way until the final sixteenth, where he tired badly. Then Turner came along on the inside with Lally and he outgamed Buck Pond in the final drive. Jockey Karle Sande nursed J. F. Bichard-sons Normal home a winner of the second race, which was at a mile and seventy yards over S. Goochs Dan Boiling, while V. A. Bosons Bonfire was third.
