CLEAN SWEEP FOR WHITNEY « — Trio of His Horses Finish One, Two, Three in Jamaica Feature. » . Maul Mnller, Swinging and Mother Goose Carry Famous Colors to Fore In Jlosedale Stakes. NEW YORK, N. Y., May 13.— Trainer Fred Hopkins had strong designs on the RosedalS Stakes, a dash of five-eighths fashioned for fillies which was offered as the feature attraction at Jamaica this afternoon, when he sent Maud Muller, Swinging and Mother Coose to the post for Harry Payne Whitney. The trio finished in the order named, and the event was more in the nature of a workout than a contest. Opposed to the Whitney trio were James Butlers Longing, and J. L, Hollands Gnome Girl The latter two were conceded scant chance and what outside chance they might have had was eliminated when the barrier was released and they were practically left. Swinging was away a trifle slowly, but she quickly joined her companions, and the trio drew away into a commanding lead and at no stage were urged. Gnome Girl, beginning in a tangte, led Longing away, but before an eighth had been covered, began to bear out and showed signs of greenness. In. the final quarter Maud Muller was still showing the way, while Mother Goose had given way to Swinging. This pair were under stout restraint to the finish, while Mother Goose at no stage was seriously threatened by Longing. The event carried a value of ,000 and netted the Whit-■ ney coffers in addition to the winners por-| tion, ,S50, 00 to the second horse and 00 .*« the -UUrd. There was a decided change in the weather for the best at Jamaica today and an improvement in the crowd was noticed. The track was heavy on the inner rail, but drying out rapidly on the outside. Overhead conditions were of varying sort, sunshine and cloudiness alternating during the afternoon. High Commander, ridden by jockey J. Callahan, was winner of the fifth race at three-quarters la a drive from C. D. Sed-leys Protocol, while C. A. Applegates Juno was third. The winner was a forward factor from the start and, finishing steadily under courage, outgamed Protocol at the end. The latter saved ground throughout while Juno closed a big gap to be third. James Butler scored his first success of the year when Candy Stick was winner of Continued on twelfth pagt CLEAN SWEEP FOR WHITNEY rontinued from first page. the last race of the afternoon in easy fashion from J. S. Wards Theo. Fay, while M. Howards Miss Rabe was third. The winner was ridden by jockey I,. McAtee, who completed a triple during the afternoon. Kirk-field bolted right after the start and unseated his rider who escaped without injury. Theo. Fay barely managed to outstay Miss Babe which finished fast from a slow beginning. The Salubria Stable supplied the winner of the first race which was fashioned for three-year-olds under claiming conditions at three-quarters, when Relle Artiste had no trouble in leading front end to end. Mrs. A. Swenkes Exalted Ruler raced to second place, while Mrs. J. R. Hollands Apology was third. The winner was ridden by jockey R. Rreuning and from a rail position began quickly and in a few strides assumed command. Kxalted Ruler chased after her, but at no staga did she seriously menace the pacemaker, whereas Apology began slowly, but slipped through on the inner rail at the stretch turn and was closing with determination at the end. S. L. Rurch saddled his second winner of the afternoon, when he sent A. C Randolphs Old Welbourne to the post in the second race which was under claiming conditions. Neglected by the public and accorded scant chance, he worked his way up on the inside and, finding clear passage on the inner rail at the stretch turn, wore down the leaders to win going away under a drive. Shine On finished second, while Hands Up was third. The Commonwealth, at a mile and a sixteenth, a claiming handicap, was offered as the secondary feature of the afternoon and it resulted in a hollow victory for F. J. Farrells Horologe over Mrs. A. Swenkes Bolphrizonia and .1. MacManus Jacqueline Julian. Mies Cerina and Banter, the other two starters, were both ridden with such poor judgment that after a half mile had been run it became apparent that, barring aci-ldents. Horologe would be returned the winner. Mies Cerina, ridden by Burns, and Ranter, riddtn by Schuttinger, both went out to make the pace and as a result raced each other into defeat and finished back in the ruck. McAtee, astride Horologe, was content to bide his time and when he made his move rounding the far turn, drew away with ease and assumed commanding lead. Relphrizonia closed resolutely and held Jacqueline Julian safe at the end.
