I i i i H. P. WHITNEY COLORS » First and Second in Running of the Clover Stakes. « Maud Muller and Swinging the Successful Standard Bearers — Large Crowd Present. • . NEW YORK, N. Y., June 18.— Harry Payne Whitney furnished the winner and second horse in the running of the Clover Stakes, which featured the Wednesday afternoon card at Aqueduct, when Maud Muller, ridden by J. Maiben, and Swinging, ridden by L. McAtee, showed the way to the Salubria Stables Flying Comet and seven other fillies of prominence. The Clover Stakes was at five-eighths and carried an added value of ,000. Trainer J. Rowe had designs on the event and named three to carry the colors of the New Jersey breeder. The confidence that reposed in the trio was reflected in the market, and as a result the stable was one of the shortest priced choices of the afternoon. There was no delay at the barrier and the field left in good alignment. Maiben was the quickest away with Maud Muller and she was pressed by Flying Comet, while the others were in close formation. There was no change in the running position until the field was well settled in the stretch. Maud Muller still showed the way, while Fying Comet was having some troube in keeping up. Swinging was rated along under restraint and it was not until the final sixteenth that McAtee called upon her and she ranged alongside of Flying Comet and disposed of her in a brief struggle. Elf, the other starter from the Whitney barn, from a slow beginning finished fourth. The remainder of the field had scant chance against the placed horses, and it appeared that they were not unmercifully ridden. The Aqueduct track was at its best and a crowd of huge proportions was on hand to witness the decision of the program, which engaged well-balanced fields. Continued on sixteenth page. i i , . ; H. P. WHITNEY COLORS Continued from first page. The International Subscription Steeplechase Number 3. which was offered as the secondary feature of the afternoons card, resulted in a victory for the Middleneck Farms Shawn a Glanna, ridden by J. Pierce in easy fashion from Colibri from the Somerset Stable, while W. J. Salmons Woodley II. was third. Of the seven named all answered the bugle call and but one failed to negotiate the course with safety, Clybridge, the G. D. Widener starter. There was little time lost at the barrier and the field left in perfect alignment. Racing to the first fence, the horses were closely bunched and it was here that Shawn a Glanna forged his way to the front and assumed command which he never relinquished. His stable companion, Boatman, was racing along with him the first turn of the field, while Clybridge was going strongly, leading the others, with Conquerant bringing up the rear. Woodley II., the W. J. Salmon starter, was showing good form over his previous start and was a forward factor for the greater part of the way. Shawn a Glanna continued to lead and he was racing along in a strong manner. Boatman began to feel the effects of the early pace and began to drop back, while Woodley II. moved up with a rush at the second turn of the field. He made a bad landing at the thirteenth jump, which caused him to lose considerable ground. Rathcowan and Colibri began their moves when Clybridge unseated his rider at the twelfth fence. The Middle Neck Farms fencer, however, was going in easy fashion and he went to his final obstacle with speed in reserve. He cleared this with ease and was then taken under stout restraint and won pulled up. Colibri outlasted Woodley II. for second place which came fast again. The race carried an added value of ,000 and was worth ,250 to the winner. A cheap band of platers, eighteen in number, paraded for the running of the third race, which was at three-quarters. The winner turned up in W. M. Jeffords Reprisal, which raced to his best form and beat out Mrs. A. Swenkes Muskallonge at the end. The Freepcrt btable was third with Idle Thoughts. The winner from a quick start dominated the running throughout and after racing Idle Thoughts into defeat outlasted the fast-finishing Muskallonge. The latter, after being shuffled back at the start, finished with a rush. I — — =========: Red Wingfield. racing for Mrs. A. Swenke, was first home in the Borrow Handicap, at I one mile, in which he beat out W. Hogans Jacqueline Julian, while F. A. Herolds Re-| jection was third.
