FOUL STRETCH RIDING ♦ Leads to Disqualification in Aqueducts Main Race. ♦ Hullabaloo Set Back After Finishing First in Rockaway Stakes, Decision Going to Silk Tassel. 9 NEW YORK, N. Y.. June 23.— Foul stretch riding in the feature race at Aqueduct today brought the disqualification of W. C. Clancys Hullabaloo after he had finished first in the running cf the Rockaway Claiming Stakes. By the ruling of the stewards J. B. Smiths Silk Tassel was moved into first place, Edward Arlingtons Dominique second and Lee Rosenbergs Suncar was placed third over Mrs. E. M. Browns Amor Patriae. This was a three-quarters dash and it was Dominique that was the principal sufferer from the roughing and crowding of Hullabaloo. He was beaten for the second place by Silk Tassel less than a half length after being badly knocked cut of it by Hullabaloo. From a good start Coltiletti rushed Amor Patriae into a long early lead and Banter and Doninique were chasing after him. Dominique began from the outside and when lie was just a bit slow leaving the barrier Sande had to rush him in the first eighth to take his forward position. Silk Tassel was in the first flight and Hullabaloo followed her clo?ely. Rounding into the stretch Sande moved up with Dominique and for an instant it seemed that he would go to the front. Amor Patriae was tiring from his eaxly efforts, but Banter was still going fairly well and Silk Tassel was coming strongly on the outside. Then it was that Maiben made his rush on the outside. He first bothered Banter and then came over on Dominique, knocking the Arlington plater off his stride. Silk Tassel was in danger, but Legere appeared to pull her up silghtly before she was hit. Hullabaloo continued to bear over right to the end, where he drew clear to be first by two lengths, while Silk Tassel beat Dominique a scant half length and Suncar and Amor J Patriae followed closely lapped. After the finish both Sande, who rode | Dominique, and Legere, who had the mount i on Silk Tassel, went into the stand. Maiben was sent for and the disqualification followed. nULLABALOO BAD ACTOR. Hullabaloo is a horse of bad action and he appeared to swerve over on the ether runners on his own account, but at the same time Maiben did not appear to use any real effort to prevent the fouling. Gwyn Tompkins made it a double for the Glen Riddle silks when he sent Ten Minutes to the pest for Mr. Riddle in the mile handicap, that was the fifth offering. The three-year-old was in under the feather of 96 1-2 pounds and, coming with a well-timed rush at the end, he readily beat Mrs. A. Swenkes Red Wingfield, while old Thunderclap, from the Rancocas Stable, was third. Red Wingfield was the one to set all the pace and Ten Minutes was rated along back of him by Callahan. Missionary was running third and Thunderclap quickly found his way to a place after the Buxton horse, while Prince of Umbria was not shewing his usual speed. It was not until well in the stretch that Callahan made his real move with Ten Minutes. When he did move he quickly went to the pacemaker and put him away without much of an effort. In the meantime Thunderclap was finishing gamely under Sandes vigorous drive, but he could not catch either of the first two and had to be content with third. Whetstone took down the first race of the spring season for the Glenn Riddle Farm when she was winner of a three-quarters dash for three-year-old fillies that was the opening attraction. Selby Burschs Best Beloved, after forcing the pace, took second place, and the Longridge Stables Nancy Langhorne beat Hairy Payne Whitneys Margin for third. Best Beloved, beginning well, quickly went into the lead but it was Margin that was right after her, with Vulcain Queen and Eagerness following. After the start. Sunny Sal. holding the inside position, was pinched off badly and thereafter she was last all the way. Whetstone worked her way up next to the inside rail and coming through in that position finished with excellent courage to beat the tiring pacemaker a head. Margin tired when the pinch came and Nancy Langhorne readily held Margin safe. The race suggested that Margin has had too much of it recently. ANOTHER FOR THE GARTHS. The steeplechase of the day brought out a dczen cheap ones, but it resulted in a good finish and another score for the Garth clan when Hugh Garths Beck was winner from W. V. Dwyers St. Lawrence and Peccant, racing for A. J. Davis, was third. Beck and St. Lawrence were the ones to cut out all the pace and, going into the back field, .CouUuucU gu sixteenth oaxeU. FOUL SMTCH RIDING Continued from first page. St. Lawrence drew out into a long lead over the Garth gelding. H. Williams made every use of the speed of St. Lawrence and, in fact, made too much use cf it, for when the front field was reached, though he was still showing the way by a good margin, he was beginning to tire, while Beck was going well under punishment. Beck continued to gain under a drive until he was close on the heels of St. Lawrence at the last fence. In the run home Beck readily outgamed the tiring pacemaker to win going away by two and a half lengths. Peccant had raced forwardly all through the race and he had no trouble saving t—rd place, though he was four lengths back of St. Lawrence. Bayard AVar-rens Byng fell heavily at the thirteenth fence with C. Pinkney and Med Hendersons Verboten refused at the twelfth fence. August Belmonts Blind Play was an easy winner of the mile for the three-year-olds, that was the third offering. It was for non-winners since April 28 and there were some fairly good ones opposed to the son of Fair Play and Blue Glass, but under a well-timed ride by Johnny Maiben the result was never seriously in doubt. Sun Rajah was the one to go into the lead right after the rise of the barrier and Donnelly went after him. Maiben was content to rate Blind Play along behind them and showing the way to Pepp, Check and Resolution, the other starters. It was nearing the stretch turn that Blind Play gradually drew up on Donnelly and about that time Sun Rajah tired badly and began to shorten his stride. Resolution was making up some ground, but an eighth from home Blind Play had gone into command and the race was as good as over. He was home winner by almost three lengths. Donnelly faltered under a drive in his effort to catch Blind Play and it cost him the place when Resolution finished with good courage under punishment. Sun Rajah was eased up after being hopelessly beaten and finished last of the company. Frank J. Farrells Nicholas was an easy winner of the final race of the afternoon, which engaged a large field of maiden two-year-olds. H. C. Fishers Swope raced to second place, while R. L. Gerrys Voltaic was third. The winner was a forward factor throughout and won with speed in reserve.
