QUINCE GARDENS DAY Triumphs Over Dr. Hickman in the Yellow Cab Handicap. Favorites Have a Tough Afternoon and a Big Crowd Views Their Overthrow. HAWTHORNE RACE TRACK, Aug. 15. After many efforts Quince Garden finally managed to win a race when he grot home in advance of Dr. Hickman in the Yellow Cab Handicap, at three-quarters, and won by a half length after a hard drive in 1:11, excellent time over this track. Quice Garden was favorite, but during the early running of the race it seemed Dr. Hickman would bo the victor, for he was far in advance and holding steadily to his task. Dr. Hickman began showing distress when he reached the last eighth, but finished gamely and it was only in the last seventy yards that Quince Garden managed to wear him down. Alleden finished third because Francesco was of scant help to Sakah. There was a mix-up scon after the start as a result of Dr. Hickman swerving over. It forced Stake Me completely out of any chance and almost caused his fall. Several of the others also were sufferers by it. A surprisingly large attendance was again on hand to view the sport. The fields were by far the largest that have started during the past week.- The starters were well matched in the main and substantial prices ruled against the winners. Favorites were beaten in the first three races, but figured as active contenders in the running. PICCIKILLOS BAD HIDE. One of the bad rides of the many witnessd during the meeting was that of J. Piccirillo astride Marine Corps, the favorite in the fifth race. The rider took the horse back sharply imemdiately after the start and he was on the extreme outside of the field in the early running. He moved up resolutely on the last turn, but here too the rider took him back sharply. He then came fast in the stretch on his own courage, but failed of getting a place, Proceeds winning luckily because Pendergrass, on Bills Luck, almost fell off near the end. The third race brought about an outstanding surprise when Max Brick, one of the extreme outsiders, won in the last seventy yards, after coming with a rush through the stretch. There were thirteen starters in this with Beautiful Addie the favored one but she never figured after making a slow beginning. Coyne, under hard urging, outstayed Finday for second place. The opening race found Golden Lynn the winner. It was her first start in her new owners colors and she was lucky not to have been disqualified for she interfered sharply with several of the contenders in the stretch. Try Again, also swerving, finished in second place just in advance of Boo Boo. CLOUGHJOEDAX DISAPPOINTS. Cloughjordan was a supposed good thing In the second race but he was beaten home handily by Body Guard. It was the latters initial victory since his transfer from the E. R. Bradley establishment to "Tony" Barrett, at Churchill Downs. He was well backed by the Board of Trade contingent and his victory cost the layers heavily. He led from practically the start with Cloughjordan his closest follower for the entire race. Soldier II. finished in third place. In the case of Beautiful Addie, her poor showing was due largely to her inexperienced rider, who seemed totally at a loss what to do after the filly got away slowly and was hemmed in the big field. I The closing race enabled "William Weant to score a victory when his Elias O. managed to get up in time to beat the heavily backed Glentilt, with Slanderer in third place. Glentilt showed fine speed, but was probably a bit short and Elias O. outstayed him. Slanderer, which had suffered extensively soon after the start by Eelmans interference, closed a big gap and finished third. Chaplet had much taken out of her by the bumping she got at the start and being ridden wide. Royal Duck, the favorite, was never prominent-It began raining as the horses went to the post and continued throughout the race. Finday went back to her former stable after the third raco, S. T. Baxter claiming her at a cost of ,800.
