Haymans Sheriff Bell, just managed j to last it out long enough to beat Flammula j by a head for the Myrtle Selling Stakes, at Gravesend today. The latter mad? the pace e from the rise of the barrier until midway of the stretch where the Hayman racer got on 1 even terms and then forged to the front, having " a half length lead a hundred yards from 1 the wire, but Flammula came again and was s wearing him down at the finish. Unmasked was best of the others that started and took •t third place by ten lengths from John F. ■ To a combination of Hockey Henrys s j e 1 " 1 s •t s • weakened condition and overconfidence, may be attributed Wltfulls defeat at Harlem to-■ day in the mile event, the fourth on the card. The filly was an odds on choice and this marks the second time that Sam Hildreths Miss has been beaten when at odds on. Today it was Jerry Lynch, assisted by a hustling ride by Oliphant, that took the measure of the daughter of Mirthful, getting a nose de-• cision in a strenuous finish. Lord Badge was played as a good thing here but quit badly in the stretch.
