SCORES IN GREAT FINISH John T. D. Beats Pedagogue and Barney Google at Jamaica. Flames Has Easy Time Taking Measure of Rinkey, the Only Other Starter In Secondary Attraction. NEW YORK, N. Y., Oct. 2. For a feature at Jamaica the Thursday offering was the Lynbrook Claiming Stakes for juveniles and it resulted in a great finish when William Daniels John T. D. was up to win going away from the Rancocas Stables Pedagogue, with Edward Arlingtons Barney Google a close third. The race was worth ,025 to the winner. There was a decided change in the temperature for the races today and it was almost of summer mildness in contrast to the chilling winds of the opening day. The track had dried out nicely and the sport was first class, though one race, the mile and seventy yards handicap, attracted the Belaid Studs Flames and the Greentree Stables Rinkey as the only starters. There was an element of luck in the victory of John T. D. in the stake, though he ran a first-class race. Pedagogue raced as though best and .probably would have been winner had it not been for some roughing he received from Barney Google in the stretch run. Early in the action Pedagogue and Barney Google drew out from the others, with Barney Google on the inside. John T. D. began a bit slowly, but at the head of the stretch, when Barney Google carried Pedagogue out slightly, it afforded Cooper his opportunity to bring the winner through on the inside. In the run home there was some bumping between Barney Google and Pedagogue and the Rancocas colt proved the gamer, but the advantage enjoyed by John T. D. made the difference and he was going away at the .end, while if it had been impossible for him to come through third was the best he could possibly have accomplished. The two horse race was a joke for Flames was so much better than Rinkey, over the mile and seventy yards distance, that it was no contest Continued on fourteenth page. SCORES IN GREAT FINISH Continued from first page. Rinkey broke in front, but Thorndyke could hardly go with his mount and bsfore he was ready he lost the advantage and Flames was right with her and rating along there ho had her beaten. Before the half-mile ground was reached, he was clear and going away with ridiculous ease. Flames worked out after finishing and went the mile and an eighth in 1:51 and the mile and a quarter in 2 :06. The work was one of the most impressive seen in many a day. Flames is an eligible for the Latonia Championship Stakes and he is making ready for that race. It was a cheap band that met in the mile and a sixteenth of the fifth race and as slow a filly as Irene Sweeney was able to force all the pace and be home winner from old Wynnewood with William Daniels Lighter saving third. There was little to the running after Irene Sweeney beat her company to the first turn and while for a time East Indian was in second place he soon gave way to Wynne-wood and that old fellow always held second place safe. Lighter ran an improved raco and saved ground on the inside all the way, while Scare Crow lost ground on every turn, and Maryland Belle was one that ran an unaccountably dull race. A race at three-quarters for platers was the first offering and it went to W. J. Boths Pat Casey when he beat, home Thomas Calcinas Skirmish and Mrs. G. C. Winfreys Lady Boss, with Frank Taylors Reprisal fourth. Reprisal was the one to cut out the pace, but Pat Casey was never far away and Lady Boss raced forwardly. The others were in fairly close order, but with fourteen starters there was some bumping and Jyntee was one of the unfortunates and was also forced to race a bit wide. Reprisal looked all over a winner as he turned for home, but Pat Casey came again and both Skirmish and Lady Boss also gained on him under vigorous riding. Then the Taylor sprinter quit badly and Pat Casey was safely home, while Skirmish proved to have enough left to beat Lady Boss by a narrow margin. The second race was a three-quarters dash for maidens of every age, and two-year-olds were first and second when Lawrence Water-burys Sanford won from H. P. Whitneys Courageous, with Matt Colfords four-year-old Osage finishing third. Sanford had to be pounds the best to be winner, for he was badly roughed in the stretch by McAtee on Courageous when he attempted to come through on the inside. This caused Legere to take him up and come to the outside in the last sixteenth but the colt was good enough to take that handicap and beat Courageous by a nose, with Osage just a head further away. Courageous had no excuses. Beginning well, he forced most of the running, with Osage chasing after him. At the head of the stretch Legere saved ground with Sanford but as he tried to come through ho was pinched off by McAtee, as has already been told. Swinging to the outside, he closed with a great rush to be up in time to win. In this race King Jimmy, the starter from the Rancocas Stable, was listlessly ridden by Laverne Fator, and his performance was in no sense an index of his quality or his present condition. Mrs. W. M. Jeffords Goldpiece, ridden by jockey Kummer, was winner of the final race of the afternoon from Mrs. F. A. Clarks Sweet Ann, while J. Farrells Goldbeater was third. The winner dominated the running from the start and after racing Noah into defeat had something left at the end. Sweet Ann came from far back to take second place in the final strides from Goldbeater, which after saving ground at the stretch turn moved into second place but tired at the end.
