BELGRADE TO RIVAL 1 Records Another Stake Victory i for Rancocas Stable. i I . i Ten Eyck Easily Takes Secondary r v Feature Wampee in Olos- ing Strides. , NEW YORK, N. T., Oct. G. The Rancocas Siable annexed another stake to the already long list for this year when Rival, ridden Jjy Lavernc Fator, was an easy victor of the the Belgrade Claiming Stakes, which was for three-year-olds and oyer at three-quarters, for a prize of ,000. Rival was opposed "by three other starters of the eight which were originally carded. From the beginning Rival left no doubt as to his mastery of Shis opponents and at the end was leading home the Joaquin Stables Amor Patriae, which in turn was driving hard to save second place from C. A. Stonehams Dry Moon, -while Edward Arlingtons Honfleur was fourth but a matter of inches away. The card which was offered this afternoon brought together some mediocre fields and on the whole racing was of a poor calibre, the majority of the winners leading their opponents by a "safe margin. The "Worlds .Series game played havoc with the attendance, the crowd was by far the smallest of the Metropolitan season despite the warmth of the day. In the Belgrade there was no time lost at the barrier and the field left in good alignment. Fator had Rival away on his toes, but he was quickly pressed by the invader from Canada. Dry Moon and Honfleur were quickly outrun and dropped back but raced lapped on each other. Rounding the turn Amor Patriae moved up with determination, but Rival had something in reserve and when Fator called on him he bounded away. Amor Patriae found the pace too fast and was quitting fast Rival was the first under the Rancocas colors to score in the renewal of this stake and he ran. the distance in 1 :11 and added ,425 to his winning total. TWO FOB CALLAHA3T. Tho Cherry Valley, which was at a mile and seventy yards and the secondary feature of the day, resulted in an easy victory for the Ascot Stables Ten Eyck, ridden by Callahan. R. L. Gerrys Cyclops finished second while Mrs. U. S. Wishards Polo Ground was third with the other starters badly strung out The winner helped Callahan complete a double during the afternoon He had Ten Eyck away the leader and rapidly drew away into an easy lead and was rated along under steadying restraint to the finish. Thurber, astride Cyclops, during the early stages put forth a miserable effort which contributed greatly to the Gerry colts defeat. Racing to the first turn Cyclops was taken up and then went to the outside around the others. In the meantime Ten Eyck had drawn away. When settled on the backstretch Thurber elected to again take to the inside and quickly found himself penned in by "Venus, which was racing on the outside. When clear Cyclops closed some ground but the early handicaps had proven too much and second place was the best he could take down. Polo Ground closed some groud to be an easy third. . R. T. Wilsons Wampee got up in the closing strides to account for the Exile which was a condition affair at one mile and seventy yards. Missionary raced to second place while Feysun was third. The winner was ridden by jockey B. Marinelli and was a neglected factor in the calculations. Missionary was the one to cut out the early running and he raced McAuliffe into early defeat but succombed right at the end to the challenge of Wampee. Flames, the popular i choice in the race, propped when the start came and Fields rode him wide for the remainder of the journey. SWEET ANJS HOME FIRST. Mrs. F. Ambrose Clarks Sweet Ann was an easy winner of the final race of the day . which was fashioned for two-year-olds. ; Pleasant Memories finished second while ; Sarzana was third. The winner came from behind the pace cut out by Pleasant Mem- ories and Avas going clear at the end. Gnome Girl, after showing much early speed, ran out at the turn into the stretch. Two-year-olds of mediocre calibre were given an opportunity to earn their keep over the five and a half furlong distance and Teton, from tho W. R. Coe stable, proved . easily the best and led the other eleven to the end by a wide margin. Lord Vargrave , raced to second place in a drive from Carthage, which was a good third. The winner was ridden by jockey J. Callahan and from a forward position wore down the leaders with no apparent trouble and had a three-length lead. Lord Vargrave finished fast on the outside while Carthage after showing a good performance throughout was third. 1 Both Royal Girl and Golden Locks, the early . pacemakers, raced each other into defeat and Continued on sixteenth page. BELGRADE TO RIVAL Continued from first page. fell back rapidly in the final sixteenth. A field of all ages and description started in the recond race, which was at three-quarters and the winner turned up in the non-staying Reprisal, racing for Frank Taylor, by a wide margin from Jyntee and Lucky Strike. The race was marred by a ragged start caused when the webbing failed to function properly and eliminated several of the starters. Reprisal drew away into a long lead and saving ground thereafter had but little trouble winning easily. Jyntee came from the rear and outlasted Lucky Strike at the end while the others were many lengths back. Five claims were filed for the Bancocas Stables Bival and on the draw he went to E. H. Harts Swingalong Stable for ,700 and is destined for Maryland racing. F. M. Taylor, D. R. McDaniel and A. Jacobus also filed claims.
