I - c j a a t r r t j j , i ; i 1 i -C9 R. T. WILSONS COLORS Carried Home First in Gowanus Selling Stakes. Forest Flower Makes Show of Her Company Anticipation Again in Front. NEW YORK, N. Y., Oct 9. Richard T. Wilsons Forest Flower, home-bred daughter of Campfire, made a show of her company in the Gowanus Selling Stakes, one mile and sixteenth, at Jamaica this afternoon, over track none too fast Forest Flower took the lead after the first quarter and, cleverly rated in front by little George Cooper, was never afterward extended, to win by more than two lengths in 1 :45. P. S. P. Randolphs High Prince attempted to keep up with Forest Flower in the early stages and, as a result, tired badly at the end and was beaten for second place by the fast finishing Roseate II., vigorously ridden by George Hooper, a recent arrival from Canada". Cockney was third until straightened out in the stretch, then quit completely. Athelstan looked bad going to the post and showed no speed at any stages, being beaten off at the end. There was considerable improvement in the attendance today, and the track was in good condition, though a trifle dead. Scratches were normal, but there was little contention to the racing, most of the winners taking their races with something to spare. The opening race, calling for two-year-olds to be ridden by jockeys that had not won two races, brought together nine youngsters of the claiming grade.- Herbert had Wrack-lane forwardly and kept the daughter of Wrack and old Logistilla well up throughout, making him run below the eighth post and coming away to win handily by half a length from New Hope. The latter filly, a recent claim by T. O. Webber from Edward Arlington, made the early pace in company with Hendrick and assumed the lead in the stretch, but tired rapidly when challenged byi the winner. Carthage finished fast and just Continued on sixteenth page. R. T. WILSONS COLORS Continued from first page. in time to be awarded third place. The others were never contenders. B. C. Segars Anticipation, a daughter of Trompe la Mort, in the second race ran right back to her last good performance and was an easy winner from Rosa Yeta, which was always close to the pace. The field was badly strung out all the way and there was little shifting of positions aside from All In All which went along with Anticipation for three-quarters and then dropped out of the picture. High Commander fell lame after .running well up for a half. The Marrone Stables Anna Marrone II., outclassed her company for early speed, was a handy winner of the secondary feature of the day, the Huntington Purse, for all ages, at three-quarters. The start was an excellent one and Carter quickly had Anna Marrone II., clear of the others, Skyscraper made two unavailing attempts to catch the pacemaker, but had no trouble in beating Avisack for second place. The latter filly appeared sore going to the post, and was the victim of Clarence Turners indifferent ride, losing ground on the turn and making a futile bid in the last eighth when too late. Bontaud recently from the Canadian tracks was beaten off. Ike Garson saddled the winner of the fifth race, under claiming conditions, at a mile and sceventy yards, in F. Housmans Lockerbie, a recent graduate from the maiden ranks. Intrepid and "Venus essayed to make the running, but after a half the latter filly was through and Lockerbie and the two-year-old Champignol challenged and, swinging for home, all appeared to have a chance. But once straightened away it was easy for Lockerbie, which came away to win by six lengths. Intrepid stuck it out gamely, while Champignol tired, in the run through the stretch and just lasted to beat old War Mask for third place. The latter ran a fair race. W. R. Coes two-year-old Zuker, a son of High Time, ran away from his company in the closing race of the day, the Sandringham Handicap, at five and a half furlongs. Col-tiletti had Thundering first away from the barrier and stole a good lead in the first sixteenth, but Carter sent Joe Marrone III. after him and they ran. together until well around the last turn, where they were joined by Swope and Zuker. Thundering quit badly in the final sixteenth and Zuker, closing with i a rush on the outside, won as he pleased by three lengths. Joe Marrone III. hung on long enough to beat the miserably ridden Swope for second place. Turner, with the latter colt, was in behind the horses turning 1 for home and seemed unable to make up his mind to come inside or "outside of Joe Marrone III. Repulse was never, a contender;
