EVIDENCE OF QUALITY Master Charlie, Winner of Hopeful Stakes, Gains New Laurels. 0 Captures Remsen Handicap in Fast Time of 1:11 After Impressive Performance. NEW YORK, N. Y.. Oct 15. Master Charlie, William Daniels winner of the Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga, gave further evidence of his quality when he was victorious in the three-quarters of the Remsen Handicap at Jamaica today. The fleet-footed son of Lord Archer and Bachelors Choice took up 130 pounds and, forcing all the pace, ran the three-quarters in 1:11, the fastest time hung up for the distance by any two-year-old this year. The race was worth ?4,C75 to the winner and it was H. C. Fishers Swope that raced to second place, with Richard T. Wilsons Faddist beating William Zeigler, Jr.s, Star Lore for third. The Remsen Handicap was the closing feature of the Jamaica meeting and it was a brilliant renewal of the stake that had its first running in 1904. The weather was all that could have been desired for the sport and the track was at its best Ten had been named overnight for the Remsen, but Despot and Polly McWiggles were withdrawn before post time. Of the eight remaining besides those already mentioned were Robert L. Gerrys Voltaic and Peanuts, Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords Goldpiece and Richard T. Wilsons Campfire Tales. After a short delay at the post a good start was effected and Babin, who came over from Laurel to ride Master Charlie, at once sent the colt to the front Voltaic was right after him, with Goldpiece third and Faddist fourth. Swop was heading the others and Campfire Tales brought up the rear. BABIXS DIFFICULT TASK. Master Charlie quickly opened up a lead of a couple of lengths and was going along well in hand in his run through the back-stretch. Voltaic held to second place, but Goldpiece did not show his usual burst of speed and he was soon headed by Swope. Leaving the backstretch Master Charlie, while still enjoying a good lead, bore out badly and Babin was forced to take him up to keep him at his task. Faddist was working his way up in resolute fashion on the inside, and still closer to the rail Swope was racing along strongly. The way in which Master Charlie was bearing out made it appear ttha he would surely bo beaten, and then at the stretch turn he again went out badly and Babin had no end of trouble keeping him straight This gave Swope his opportunity, and when Clarence Turner saved ground in the stretch turn he was closing with a great rush. But Babin had Master Charlie straight when he reached the middle of the track, and he came along there gamely and true unto the end and he was still three parts of a length to the good. The time in which the race was run and the fact that the colt bore out so badly made the race a doubly impressive one. It is intended to start Master Charlie in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs and in his present condition he will be a worthy New York representative in the big race. CLOSE AND EXCITING FINISH. The starters in the mile and seventy yards of the third race staged an exciting contest when G. C. Winfreys Insulate outgamed F. S. Pages Kellerman, while Mrs. G. H. Abbotts The World beat Mrs. D. R-. Mc-Daniels Water Girl for third. Sword and Eagerness were the other starters and they cut no figure in the running. Kellerman was the one to cut out the running but Insulate was right after him and for a goodly part of the journey they were well lapped. Then after leaving the back stretch The World moved up on the outside with a rush that was decidedly threatening and the three were lapped at the head of the stretch. But The World had given his all in the rush that took him to the leadera and ho faded away badly in the last eighth. All through the stretch Kellerman battled along on the inside, but Insulate proved to have more left and right at the end was a going away winner. Ruban, Rouge racing under the silks of Mrs. R. A. Alexander, was winner of the milo and sixteenth of the fifth race when ho led home Henry Butlers Rosa Yeta, Clarence Buxtons War Mask, and six other ordinary platers. From a good start Rosa Yeta was rushed into a long lead, but Ruban Rouge worked his way through the comparand leaving the back stretch, was in second place. It was a hard chase to catch tho filly, but it was accomplished to shouts of encouragement from the stand, for it was a popular victory. War Mask had to close something of a gap to take down third. R. L. Gerrys Emissary, ridden by jockey Thurber, was winner of the final race of Continued on sixteenth page. EVIDENCE OF QUALITY Continued from first page. the afternoon at Jamaica, when he was up in the. final sixteenth to beat out H. P. Whitneys Arno, while Polly McWiggles was third. The winner came from behind the pace and finishing with good courage, wore down Arno and was going clear. It was a great finish that came with the decision of the three-quarters handicap for fillies and mares when N. Loscalzos Avisack, W. R. Coes Lady Belle and Harry Payne Whitneys Miss Whisk finished so closely lapped that the result was in doubt until the numbers were displayed. At the rise of the barrier the start was marred slightly when Margin and Miss Whisk, the Whitney pair, bore out slightly and both Lady Belle and Avisack were taken up. This gave the Whitney pair a decided advantage and Margin was showing the way, followed by her stablemate. Before the turn out of the back stretch was reached Miss Whisk had run up to her stablemate and Lady Belle and Avisack were still lengths back of them. This order continued to the head of the stretch, but by that time both Lady Belle and Avisack were closing rapidly on the outside. Then, right at the stretch corner Caroll went out with Margin, bumping Lady Belle and carrying her out badly, while Avisack was outside the pair of them. This move gave McAtee, on Miss Whisk, clear sailing on the inside and he took every advantage of his good fortune, but the other two fillies finishing gamely under the drive, wero up in the closing strides to produce the nose finish with Avisack first, Lady Bele second and Miss Whisk third. It is probable that had Miss Whisk been first home she would have been disqualified for the rough riding of Carroll on her stable-mate at the head of the stretch, but the fillies that suffered from the interference finished first and second. Seventeen cheap ones went to the post in the opening three-quarters dash and there was much bumping and crowding leaving the barrier. The winner turned up in J. T. Meaneys Lucky Strike with the Freeport Stables Idle Thoughts saving second place from Fred Krafts old mare Jyntee. Jyntee was first to show out of the bunch, but she did not have speed enough to hold her advantage and soon gave way to Redskin and Idle Thoughts. Then as Jyntee dropped back she was sharply interfered with on the turn out of the back stretch and it cost her considerable ground. At the head of the stretch Redskin tired and it was in the last eighth that Lucky Strike closed with a rush to take the purse. Jyntee was forced to go wide to find racing room in the stretch and she gained some ground, but could not catch the tiring Idle Thoughts. Alex Gordon will ship the II. C. Fisher horses to Douglas Park Thursday where they will be trained for engagements at Churchill Downs. Eugene Leigh has. engaged Clarence Kum-mer to ride gpinard in tho Laurel Stakes at the track of the same name Saturday. Kumaer will leave for the Maryland track Saturday morning.
