SANOLAS POOR RACE ! Fails to Show Usual Speed in Ex- Service Mens Handicap. Brunswick the Winner in Fast Time Lucky Victory for ; Bill OFlynn. i ; HAWTHORNE RACE TRACK, Aug. 26. The Ex-Service Mens Handicap, at three-quarters, bringing together some of the best sprinters here, including Sanola, furnished a splendid contest, with Brunswick the winner over Alleden by a short half length, with Surf Rider the same margin farther back in Jhird place. Sanola followed and Dr. Hickman, favorite, finished last. The race was a fast run cne, the three-quarters being covered in 1:11. Brunswick was benefited by Pools elert riding. It enabled him to save much ground and show the way to the others from the start. Alleden had been racing in close proximity with Sanola, far out of it during the first half mile, but he came with a splendid rush near the end and forced the winner to his utmost. Dr. Hickman in the early stages was a factor, but the stretch racing found him tiring badly. Sanclas showing was the dullest of the meeting. She was at all times far out of it and failed to give her customary display of fast stretch sprinting, which in many of her former starts carried her to a victory. EX-SERVICE MES GUESTS. Perfect racing conditions were again the order, with an unusually large mid-week crowd on hand to view the sport. The attendance included 300 ex-service men. They were the guests of the association and witnessed the sport from boxes in the reserved section. The racing was interesting, with the contenders fighting it out in strenuous style. Favorites were again in eclipse in a majority "of instances. The winners, however, had considerable support. The third race, serving as the secondary feature, was almcst of equal interest to the handicap, for it brought to the post some fast ones to race three-quarters. Bill OFlynn was the victor, but his success was of the lucky variety. He was aided considerably when Pegasus, the favorite, swerved sharply and impeded the strongest contenders. Pegasus is a notorious "rail runner." It was nothing unusual for him to come over sharply against the others in the stretch. The Arau-canian was the chief sufferer from the interference and it possibly cost him the race. "Pegasus suffered by his own action, for he failed to recover in time and was beaten out by Snooksie Bradley for second place. PROBABLE STAR UNCOVERED. The opening race introduced to racing a possible crack in the colt, Dr. A. L. Biggs, which won easily from Pillager with Up and "At Em in third place. There was almost a panic at the outset of the betting to get aboard the winner and his odds were reduced steadily. He never gave his backers much concern, for Harrington had him away for-wardly, hustled him into a good lead at once and held the others safe in the stretch. Glentilt proved best of the thirteen ordinary ones that engaged in the second race. He was aided by a good ride on the part of McDermott, who rated him along steadily and had enough reserve speed to outstay Royal Duck, when the latter came with a belated rush in the last eighth. Martha SVIoore, after leading for most of the way, began tiring, but held on long enough to take third place. Kerry Girl, which won in a preceding start in commanding style, repeated in the fifth race, when she wore Ponjola down to win in easy style. Ponjola was making his first start at the meeting and he flattered extensively until tho last eighth, where he tired Jjadly and just outstayed Beautiful Addie for second place. Pollymara was the favored one in the race, but she raced far out of it from the start and unseated her rider just as the finish was reached. The final race brought about the best finish of the afternoon with Huonec the victor by a nose over West-wood, while Jack Frost finished in third place. Victor Goldstein left today for Rochester, Minn., to undergo an operation at the Mayo .Brothers hospital. Jockey Harry Stutts will leave Thursday "night to ride in the Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga Saturday.
