MINEOLA TO FADDIST Under Maibens Good Ride Wilson Racer Is Victorious. Surprises By Winning Fridays Stake at Belmont Park Frigates Defeat Unexpected. BELMONT PARK, New York, N. Y., Sept. . Richard T. Wilsons Faddist was winner f the stake offering at Belmont Park Friday ;vhen, under a good ride by Johnny Maiben, he took down the three-quarters of the Uineola, a claiming stake for two-year-olds. Ral Tarrs Bother raced to second place and ft. O. Egans Edisto saved third from Robert Li. Gerrys Peanuts. There was a decided autumn chill in the air and a high wind did not add to the ;omfort at the big Nassau county track. Rain threatened most of the afternoon, but the track, was fast, though the wind prevented anything in the way of fast time. Some of the winners came from unexpected quarters and one of these was when Faddist was first home. The defeat of Frigate by Plough Boy was another surprise and Sword showed an improvement when he took down the opening race. Eight went to the post in the Mineola. which was worth ,515 to the winner. Little time was lost at the post and Ral Parrs filly Bother proved the "most alert at the rise of the barrier. She shot away with Faddist right after her and Pedagogue was with them, but unable to keep step through the early stages. Bother had a lead of a length and a half at the first eighth post, but Faddist was racing strongly back of her and Edisto Tiad the speed of the others. Laverne Fator had Pedagogue down on the inner rail and he had to hustle him along to keep his position. Dick Whittington was outrunning his stable-mate. Peanuts, and the others were more or less strung out with Mark Over last of them all. It was after making the turn for home that Maiben sent Faddist to Bother and put her away. SCORES BY THREE LENGTHS. At this time Pedagogue was going so well on the inside that he seemed to have a winning chance, but Maiben had saved something for that last eighth and, when called upon, Faddist drew out to be winner by three lengths. Bother was tiring badly, but she lasted long enough to save second place from Edisto and Peanuts, by a belated rush, beat Pedagogue a head for fourth. Then the rain came just before the finish of the fifth race. It was a cold rain and added greatly to the discomfort of the crowd. The Greentree Stables Cherry Pie had to be much the best to be winner of the mile and a sixteenth handicap that was the fourtn offering.. lie was so slow leaving the barrier as to be almost left and had a big gap to close to catch his company. This was accomplished and he came on by to be an easy winner by four lengths while the Rancocas Stables Eaglet beat E. F. Cooneys Athelstan three parts of a length for second place with F. M. Kelleys Friday 13th the only other starter two lengths further away. Eaglet and Athelstan were the ones to set tho pace and the Rancocas three-year-old held Athelstan safe at all times. They both look every advantage of the misfortune thai! befell Cherry Pie, but when the son or Chiclo charged on them on the outside, it was not much of a battle. Eaglet tried gamely to hold him, but to no avail and he camo on to the easy victory explained above. SWOBB IN FRONT. The opening race was a mile and a sixteenth for cheap one3 and it resulted in a victory for Mrs. M. Merz Sword from Jack Richardsons old cripple Normal and G. W. Coburns Bowman saved third. From a good start Poor Sport went out in the lead but Sword was never far away, while Normal was being rated along strongly back of the pace, as was Bowman. Poor Sport was all through when the stretch was reached and it was there that Sword went into command. Anderson saved ground on the turn with Normal and he attempted to drive him through in the last ighth but Sword proved too good and the 321 pounds was a bit too much for the Plaudit gelding. lie saved second place from Bowman handily, but was as handily beaten for the long end of the prize. Bowman had no excuse and tired rather badly under a stretch drive. Rather a nice band came together in the inilo of the second race, a condition affair, and John Loftus furnished the winner when ho saddled Plough Boy for the Oak Ridge Stable. At the end ho outgamed II. M. Howards Frigate. G. W. Lofts Pepp was third and Sun Audience was fourth, and the only other starter, F. Williams Cork Elm, was virtually left at the post. There was some delay at the barrier, for which Frigate was principally to blame. He bucked Johnny Callahan from the saddle Continued on fourteenth page. M1NE0LA TO FADDIST Continued from first page. before he could be brought under control. When the barrier rose it was a good start for all but Cork Kim. He refused to go and was lengths out of it when finally chased away. Sun Audience was the one to go out in front and he quickly opened up a good lead, but Frigate was after him, under a nice restraint, while Plough Boy and Pepp followed closely lapped. Callahan rated Frigate within easy striking distance of Sun Audience, while Thurber took Plough Boy back slightly when the pace was hot. Pepp was holding his position on the rail and going so well that he seemed to have a real chance. It was after turning for home that Frigate put Sun Audience away, and right there Babin went to work on Pepp, but Plough Boy dashed up on the outside of the pair of them and he pinched off Pepp slightly as he challenged Frigate. The old gelding fought along resolutely when collared but Plough Boy proved too good and he drew out at the end to win by two lengths, while Frigate was three lengths before Pepp. Just about as bad a field of fillies and mares as has ever raced at Belmont Park went to the post for the mile of the fifth race. It was won by Jack Thornbys "Venus, with Mrs. J. A. Coburns Maryland Belle racing in second place and B. C. Segars Anticipation saving third. Anticipation made most of the pace and she was joined by Lady Audrey and "Venus before the stretch was reached, while Maryland Belle was a distant trailer down tho back stretch. Swinging for home Lady Audrey carried Anticipation and Venus wide and it was there that Callahan rushed up with Maryland Belle. She closed with good courage, but Venus was home the winner. The Greentree Stable completed a double when the first time starter Hearth Broom was winner of the closing race of the afternoon, which was for maiden two-year-olds at three-quarters, in a hard drive from W. Zeiglers Star Lore, while Mrs. i. G. Begans Thundering was third. The race was marked by considerable rough riding. The winner was penned in on the inner rail and never found clear sailing until Thundering, tho pacemaker, opened up at the stretch turn. Star Lore came with a rush on the outside and was going fastest of all at the end.
