TANGERINE IS VICTOR - Defeats Jewell V. D., in a Hotly Contested Stretch Drive. The Runt Wins the Secondary-Feature with Sanola Third Big Crowd at Hawthorne. HAWTHORNE RACE TRACK, Aug. 9. Tangerine, carrying- top weight and the colors of his new owner, who claimed him from a, preceding race for ,000, won the ,500 added Sherman Hotel Handicap, featuring Hawthornes offering from a monetary standpoint and won after a sharp drive with tne favorite Jewell V. D., in the final stride. Prince Tii Tii brought up in third place, having no contention from the other starter, Plucky. Jewell V. D., began as if she would make a runaway race of it, and raced into a good lead at once, pursued by Prince Tii Tii with Tangerine a considerable distance in back of the pair. Prince Tii Tii showed his dislike for the stiff going before going three-quarters and just before the stretch was reached Tangerine displaced -him in second place. Jewell V. D., however, did not seem in any imminent danger of being headed, but Tangerine finished in game style and gradually reduced the lead of the leader and headed her in the final strides. Track conditions again served as a drawback, but in spite of the adverse going and the threatening weather, an attendance almost of record proportion was again on hand to witness the racing. SMALL FIELDS. The small fields helped to make the sport interesting and the public was in fairly good fbrm in their quest of winners. The handicap that preceded the main feature was marked by the breaking of Sanolas long list of victories. She succumbed to The Runt and Quince Garden. The Hunt left no room for doubt as to his good mud running ability for he raced into a good lead immediately after the start and keeping it was being eased in the last sixteenth, to win in a canter. Quince Garden and Sanola alternated in second place for the first half mile, but Quince Garden then parted company with the filly and she clearly sho. that she was discommoded by the heavy going, well weighted as she was. The running of the fifth race brought with it the first disqualification of the meeting when Peter Brown was placed last aicer having msned second because of Meri-mces foul tactics. The action also carried with it the suspension of the offender and denial of privileges for him for the remainder of the meeting. Merimees action was in plain view of the big crowd and occurred when Miss Mischief, the favorite was moving up steadily and about to pass Peter Brown, which had been the leader, Merimee finding Miss Mischief gaining deliberately sent his mount bumping against her and repeated the action a i..uc later. .ss Mischief finished gamely in spite of the interference and was given the verdict. Peter Browns number was flashed in second place ut was .imediately removed and second place given to May Buddy with Sequel which finisned fourth moved into third place. Merimee was roundly hissed by the crowd, for his uniairness. SOGGAltTH AltOOtf WIXS. Some good platers tried conclusions in the final dash with Soggarth Aroon the victor in somewhat easy fashion. It was the first time that he had opportunity to display his real form and he made every post a winning one. A wild plunge on Victoiro caused that uncertain filly to be installed the favorite, with Doubtful also in strong demand. Doubtful managed to hold on long enough to beat Belle Amie for second place, but Victoire was at all times outrun and floundered repeatedly in the going. Boot Black, well supported at good odds, beat Hidden Jewel, the favorite, home in the second race, with Finday in close proximity. Hidden Jewel was possibly best, but Ellis caused him to lose much ground when he rode him wide into the stretch. The first-time starter. Miss Jennie, was favored in the opening race, but she was never formidable, the rough going and the weak riding she had proving her undoing. Mark Master was the winner here from Hurry Inn, with Runolathe in third place. Miss Jennie was away poorly anff the diminutive Griffin was unable to hold her together, causing her to be far back for the entire race.
