SENSATIONAL WINNER By Hisself, Son of Man o War Scores in Autumn Days Stakes. Defeats Pique Martha Martin. After Sparkling Finis Ji Under Kummers Brilliant Ride. YONKERS, N. Y., Oct 20. Walter M. Jeffords By Hisself, the brown son of Man o War and Colette, was a sensational winner of the Autumn Days Stakes at Empire City today under a brilliant ride by Clarence Kummer. To win he beat home James Butlers Pique, while Martha Martin, from the Swingalong Stable, was third, ahead of.. Frank E. Browns Night March, and Green-tree Stables Hearth Bropm was fifth. The race was worth ,074 to the winner. There was a high wind blowing across the track on the hill, and there was a real autumn chill in the air, but there was the usual enthusiastic attendance and no end of thrills came out of the sport A high weight handicap for all ages that fell to Billy Warren was an interesting companion piece to, the two-year-old stake and the cheaper fields were full of good racing. New Moon and Polly McWiggles were withdrawn from the published list for the Autumn Days Stakes and Thomas Healey added Richard T. Wilsons Campfire Tales, making it a field of nine that went to the pest There was a short delay at the post, during which Pique was guilty of breaking through the barrier twice. When it finally arose it was to a good start and the Butler colt was first to show his head in front BY HISSELF SLOW STARTER. Robinson rushed him along until he was two lengths clear of the others and showing the way to Hearth Broom and Pleasant Memories was leading Night March and close after the Greentree filly. By Hisself was just a bit slow to be under way, as he was last Saturday, but Kummer had him in a good position and he was racing smoothly. There was little change in these positions for the run through the backstretch, but By Hisself was gradually improving his position as he moved up on the outside of his company. But Pique was going so well in front there seemed no chance to catch him and little thought was given By Hisself, he was so far back of the latter colt It was not until rounding into the stretch that By Hisself appeared to have even a chance to be as good as third. But Kummer was sending him along at his best pace and stride by stride he continued to wear down his company. Then, in the last sixteenth, Pique faltered and By Hisself was by him to win by a length. Martha Martin had made her move through the last eighth and she was going so well that she was just a stride short of beating the son of Spur for second place. BILLY WARRED BEST. It was a nice band of sprinters that came together in the short three-quarters of the all-aged handicap, and Frank E. Browns Billy Warren proved best when he got up to beat H. M. Howards H. T. Waters, with the Log Cabin Stables Fly By taking the measure of Robert L. Gerrys two-year-old Peanuts for third. Eight went to the post, and of these J. McMillens Deputy refused to start, and was left at the post Billy Warren was first to show out of the bunch, and Fly By was right after him and H. T. Waters third. The last named had the inside position and before the run through the back stretch had been completed he slipped through into command, and was going so easily that he looked all over a winner. But Billy Warren was holding on to second place and Fly By was still showing the way to the others. Voltaic, a stable-mate of Peanuts, bore out badly on the turn out of the back stretch and lost any chance he might have enjoyed, while Rigel was being outrun and was unable to improve his position. White Wash, the James Butler starter, was another that was a distant follower. It was not until well inside the final eighth that IT. T. AVaters began to tire and Billy Warren threatened. There Callahan went to a furious drive on the leader, but it was of no avail, and outgaming him, Billy Warren was winner by a head. Two lengths further back Fly By beat Peanuts by half a length for third. For an opening race the offering was a short three-quarters clash for two-year-old fillies. It brought about a good contest, in which J. L. Hollands Gnome Girl beat home Mrs. F. Ambrose Clarks Sweet Ann, with Leo Rosenbergs Polly McWiggles finishing a close up third. Gnome Girl and Polly McWiggles were the ones to cut out most of the pace, and after turning into the stretch Polly McWiggles bumped The Holland filly and knocked her off her stride. She made u good recovery and stuck it out to win, but it. gave Sweet Ann her chance to be fighting it out at the end. Sweet Ann incidentally was weakly ridden by Ponce, She was forced to go wide through Continued on twelfth page.. SENSATIONAL WINNER ... Continued from first page. the early racing and while ground was saved in the stretch arid she" closed a considerable gap; the Porice ride at the end lacked vigor. The others in the field cut little figure in the running. There was a "big field of cheap ones went to the post for the mile and a sixteenth of the second . race,, .and. when Mrs. G. H. Abbotts. The World beat the others away, it was an advantage that saw him safely home. He was "rated " if long" In" front all the way by Baker and still had plenty left at. the end. II.. H. . Cohens Kellerman was second and Clarence Buxtons War Mask saved third from J. O. Burttschells Wrackhbrn. There was little to the race after The World left the barrier running. Once safely clear of his opponents the result was never in doubt. Kellerman and War Mask followed him in just that order most of the way, while Wrackhorn met with some interference on the first turn and closad some ground. Wynnewood looked well at the post, but he was carried wide at the first turn and he did not have much of a chance. H. Butlers Rosa Ycta, ridden by jockey J. Callahan, was the winner of the fifth race at a mile and seventy yards, while Lady Audrey and Insulate divided the remainder of the purse in the order named. Rosa Yeta raced forwardly from the start and Callahan came around the leaders at the stretch turn and drew away when well settled in the stretch, to win under mild pressure. Lady Audrey and Insulate staged a battle for second place, with the former winning by a narrow margin. J. Butlers Sleepy Head accounted for the Golden Glow Purse, the final race of the afternoon, in a handy manner from the Swing-along Stables pair, Swingalong and Fred-ericktown. The winner came from behind the pace and appeared to be in hand at the end.
