WINNER OF TOMBOY Added Starter Nedana First in Juvenile Filly Stake. All-Aged Handicap to Reparation Greentree Stables Pirate Gold Takes Steeplechase. BELMONT, PARK, New York, N. Y.; Sept. 4. Nedana, an added starter from the Rancocas Stable, under 117 pounds, was winner of the Tomboy Handicap for two-year-old fillies at Belmont Park today. It was over the five and a half furlong3 of the main course and was worth ?3,075 to the winner. . It was a good day of sport that was offered by the "Westchester Association and the crowd" was a worthy one. The weather was delightful. The track was at its best. An all aged handicap that went to Joseph 13. Davis Reparation and a steeplechase that was won by the Greentree Stables Pirate Gold were companion features to the Tomboy and they made an attractive setting for the feature. Twelve fillies had been named for the Tomboy, but Rural Route and Sombre were scratched and then Hildreth added Nedana from the Rancocas Stable to bear Nina company. It was well he did for Nina, the one named through the entry box, was at no time a serious contender. Prom a good start Lightship was first to show, but Blue "Warbler, the top weight of the company, was right with her, and Beatrice not far away. Nedana had an outside position but Lavernc Fator hurried her along until she was right with the leaders. The others were in fairly close order and Nina and John Maddens entry, Honey Pot, brought up the rear. JTEDA"A EASILY BEST. As Nedana came alongside Blue Warbler, the Bradley filly fought along gamely for a - few strides, but Nedana went on by and - swinging for home she had opened a good lead, with Fator looking back, evidently trying to find Nina, He continued "to look back most of the way home to the distress of many in the grandstand. But Nedana " was so much best that it was possible to do all this and still beat Blue Warbler by a couple of lengths. Four lengths back of these John Maddens Martha Martin was just nosed out, the fast coming Beatrice from the Belair Stud for the third money. The All Aged Handicap over the six and a half furlong distance only brought out five starters and Joseph 13. Davis Reparation, under a well judged ride by Maiben, was a handy winner over H. M. Howards Nose Dive with A. C. Bostwicks Shuffle Along saving third from Frank E. Browns Billy Warren and the Rancocas Stables Tester was last. Nose Dive was the one to go out in the lead from the rise of the barrier but Tester was with him and carried him at a stiff pace. Shuffle Along was going well and Reparation was under a nice steadying re- straint back of them, with Maiben in no hurry. Tester hung to Nose Dive to the stretch turn and kept him so busy that when Maiben made his move on the outside with Reparation he ran over the pair of them readily, to win going away. Nose Dive hung on well to beat Shuffle Along for second place and Tester, after his early efforts, quit badly to pull up last. OlENEU TO GRACE TROXLER. The opening race was a five and a half furlong dash over the main course that engaged ten juveniles of a cheap variety. This fell to B. C. Segars Grace Troxler, with Fred Tarals Fred Taral taking second place and ISdward Arlingtons Adrianople saving third from Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords Golden Locks. The latter and Roseberry were the ones to cut out most of the pace, and the daughter of Golden Broom raced Roseberry into defeat at the head of the stretch, but it took something out of her and Grace Troxler slipped through on the rail after having saved ground all the way. Fred Taral was in a forward position all throguh the running, but Adrianople closed a big gap and lost ground swinging into the stretch. The steeplechase of the day was over the short course and brought together four second raters. The Greentree Stables Pirate Gold proved best, but at the end he had to be hurried right along to beat AValtcr J. Salmons Woodley IL Mrs. N. McEachrans Irish Dream was a distant third, with Ral Parrs Vicaire last Irish Dream cut out the running for a turn of the course, but it was largely because the others did not care to go alongside of him, for lie was decidedly erratic. A bad actor at the post while on the flat, he is still something of a rowdy and was the cause of somo delay at the post Finally Mars Cas-sidy sent him away leading the others and Harvey Williams permitted him to step right out until he had a good lead. He jumped rapidly, but was rank, and he tried to run Continued on second page. WINNER OF TOMBOY Continued from first page. out making the turn into the front field. Haynes rated Pirate Gold along back of the company and was saving ground on the inside. AVoodley II. and Vicaire went after Irish Dream, but were careful to not to come to close approaching a fence, for the leader was swerving badly at some of his fences. It was not until nearly the upper end of the field that Haynes moved with Pirate Gold and he quickly put Irish Dream away. Woodley II. moved at the same time and under punishment he came to the last fence lapped with the Greentree Stable fencer. Safely over that obstacle Haynes shook up his mount to have him winner by a length, while Wocdley II. w?.s a dozen lengths before the tired Irish Dream, which in turn, beat Vicaire ten lengths. The mile, under claiming conditions, that was the third offering, brought out six bad actors and there was a considerable delay at the post The start was a good one and Russell McG ills Skyscraper proved best when he led home Edward Bradleys Breakfast Bell, with P. S. P. Randolphs King Albert the one to race third. The others of tho company were Comic Song, Lunetta and The Poet Breakfast Bell, King Albert and Comic Song, "clcsely lapped, were the ones to cut out most of the pace. Skyscraper was rated along back of them and Lunetta followed him ..vhile The Poet had no speed and quickly dropped out of all contention. Jt was not until the stretch turn that Barnes called on Skyscraper. There the Ulti-mus gelding was sent through on the inside and lie quickly went into a good lead that was to see him safely- home. Breakfast Bell had more left than the others and she had no trouble beating King Albert two lengths for second place, while the others were fairly close together, with The Poet last of them all. - . . -
