Y.. June 16.— In a des-: perately contested finish Brainstorm, Henry Wattersons black son of Peter Pan— Bubble, ridden by jockey J. Maiben, was winner of Olambala Handicap, which occupied the feature position on the Monday card offered the Aqueduct track. A length back of him finished William Martins Valador, while Horologe, from the Joaquin Stable, was third. The field, which was brought down five starters when J. S. Cosdens Nautical withdrawn, caused no delay at the bar-I rier. From a good start Brainstorm was the to cut out the running and he set fast pace. Roland went along after him, while Cherry Tie and Horologe were leading Valador by a short margin. These positions were maintained until the far turn was reached, and it was here that Roland began feel the effects of the sizzling pace and began to drop back. Horologe, under strong riding, made his bid and raced within close distance of the leader. Rounding the stretch turn, Callahan moved with his mount and when straightened in the stretch made his move. Horologe, however, kept up with the pace, but a sixteenth from the finish he began to falter and gave way. Maiben kept Brainstorm to his task in a steady manner but the black gelding was doing his best to maintain his advantage. Cherry Pie, from which much was expected. proved a disappointment in the running and no stage figured seriously. He met with slight interference at the far turn, but not enough to hamper his chances. The race was a mile. There was real summer in the air and a surprisingly large Monday crowd journeyed to the course. Large fields predominated and racing was of a brisk and spirited nature. APPRENTICE SHANKS TO FORE. The Canarsie Claiming Stakes for two- year-olds at five-eighths, which was the secondary feature of the afternoon, brought about a thrilling finish in which J. S. Cos- dens Rejected was winner by a narrow margin from W. R. Coes Dugout, while R. T. Wilsons Hidalgo was third, a matter of inches separating him from the placed horse. The winner was ridden by the apprentice Shanks and through the final eighth he brought his mount through the field and was up in the closing strides. There was but little time lost at the bar- rier and the field left in good alignment Pocket Mouse and Barney Google were the ones most prominent in the run to the elbow and the pair had a brief lead over the remainder of the field, which was racing closely bunched. The leaders dominated the running to the eighth post and it was hero that Socrates, closing fast on the outside, as-i sumed command and Pocket Mouse and Bar-i*e ney Google dropped back beaten. Rejected was racing stoutly at this time, while both Dugout and Hidalgo were closing ground on the outside. Through the final sixteenth Re-c" jected finished courageously and at the end he just managed to stall off the rush of the pair on the outside. Dugout raced out Hi-ve dalgo for second place. The race carried an added value of ,500 and netted the J. S. Cosden coffers the sum of ,650. TWO FOR CALLAHAN. Delmor, racing for C. H. Thieriot and ridden by jockey J. Callahan, was home first in the opening race of the day at six and a half furlongs under claiming conditions. H. M. Howards St Allan was the one to finish second, while the Marrone Stables Homestar was third. The race brought eight to the post and the winner was accorded the bulk of support. There was considerable de-it! lay at the start, and when the barrier was lifted the field left in poor alignment High Hand, St. Allan, Remnant and Delmor were away well and raced closely bunched. Cal-ist lahan eased back of the pace with his mount and St. Allan was the one to set the pace. Rounding the stretch turn Delmor moved up resolutely and Callahan sent him in between St. Allan and High Hand. Remnant in the meantime was racing forwardly on the extreme outside. The leaders quickly drew away from the others and through the final eighth Delmor closely gamely under punish -for ment, to wear down St. Allan and draw clear. Homestar, which was badly outrua the first part, closely resolutely in the stretch to be third. Jack Richardsons Curtis broke down badly in the running and Apex, afteer being eliminated from serious contention at the start, was pulled up and finished a distant follower. A bulky field of cheap platers paraded for the running of the second race at one mile and the winner turned up in T. Sarnos High. Commander, ridden by jockey J.

Jaunebar saved second place from J. R. Skinkers Poor Sport, which was a forward factor from the start. The winner was accorded stout support and the victory was a popular one. C. Turners War Mask was winner of the fifth race, which was offered as a split of the second race, at one mile, in a hard drive from P. S. P. Randolphs Keenan, while Mrs. E. Brewsters Water Girl was third. The winner was ridden by jockey T. Finn and, although a forward factor in the running, just got up to earn a nose decision.
