ETHEL ETHEL DEAR DEAR CAPTURES CAPTURES CINCINNAll CINCINNATI TROPHY; TROPHY; TWO TWO MORE MORE STAKES STAKES FALL FALL TO TO H. H P. P. WHITNEY WHITNEY PANTELLA AND MACAW ♦ Successful Standard Bearers for Popular Sportsman. ♦ First Mentioned Victorious in Great American Stakes — Macaw First in Brookdale. ♦ AQPF.PUCT, N. Y., June 26.— Two more big prizes went the way of the Harry Payne Whitney stable at Aqueduct Saturday when Pantella was winner of the dreat American for juveniles and Macaw triumphed in the mile and an eighth of the Rrookdale Handicap. Pony McAtee shared in the double when he rode both winners. The Creat American was worth .1. 0C0 to the winner, while the Rrookdale had a ,;!00 net value. Contemplate, from the Flamingo farm stable, was a close second in the Creat American and another Whitney was third when Witchmount, under a burden of 125 pounds, beat Saxon for that part of the award. The race was run in :59%. excellent time considering the track conditions. Weather conditions were a bit disagreeable for the Saturday sport when there were occasional showers during the day while all afternoon there were lowering clouds that threatened a downpour. Rut the Creat American and the Brookdale Handicap were attractions that resulted in an immense attendance and it was worthy sport that was offered. lOleven went to the post for the Great American and it was genenrlly agreed before the running that Whitney held the strongest hand with two such good oner, as Witch-mount and Pantella and so it proved. Rut Mormask had a decided following and there wcro other that attracted attention. LEADS FROM THK START. The start was a good one with Pantella first to show from the barrier with Contene-plate second and Witchmount third, just the order in which they finished. The Whitney pair bore in right after the start and Mormask met with some interference and others on the insidj could not stride freely. Through the early racing the Whitney pair raced first and second with Pantella showing the way but Contemplate further out on the course, was right at hand and at tho last eighth post, when the weight began to tell on Witchmount he was headed by Contemplate. All the way home Contemplate hung on gamely, but he could not reach Pantella and the Whitney filly was home the winner1 by half a length. Contemplate only beat Witchmount by a head and Saxon was a length and a half away. Saxon just beat Mormask a head for fourth. It was a thrilling finish ream out of the mile and an eighth of the Rrookdale Purse, when Robert P. Cerrys game little Peanuts was just a stride short of catching Macaw at the end. Three lengths back of them, I angerous was third when Rlondin, the sta-blemate to Macaw, bore out badly in the stretch run. From a good start, M Atee at once went into command with Macaw, and Navigator was the one to chase after him. while Rlondin was heading the others. Dangerous and Peanuts were soon bady outrun, and they were distant followers, but both galloping strongly. McAtee kept Macaw right at his task, and it was not long until Rlondin had displaced Navigator and was in second place, while both Peanuts and Dangerous were still far out of the running. IKANUTS BKI.ATK.D MOVK. Swinging into the stretch. Rlondin bore out badly, but McAtee had made a good move with Macaw and, straightened for home, be let out a wrap and increased his lead. There it was that Richards made his belated move with Peanuts. The little fellow dosed an immense gap in that last quarter, but Macaw, though tiring, struggled along under clever nursing, until he saved the day by a narrow margin. It was the fourth consecutive victory for the son of Peter Pan and Polly Flinders and the eighth stake victory for the Whitney silks. Not a little of the Macaw success may be attributed to the ride of McAtee and, had Peanuts been ridden with a like skill, he would have undoubtedly turned the tables on the three-year-old. The opening race was a six and a half furlongs dash for cheap maidens and it fell to l-anyard. a three-year-old that raced in Ohio. At the end he was doing his best to lead home Clifford A. Cochrans Rosina and Cladstone was a distant third. Continued on s. venteentli pa-e.J PANTELLA AND MACAW Continued from first page There came another victory for the Ire-entree stable silks and another winning mount for "Specs. Crawford when Damask was winner of the short course steeplechase. He out framed I.ipingo from Thomas Hitchcocks Broad Hollow Stable and Mrs. F. An.brosQ Clarks Tassel was rather a distant third. The only other starter was J. Mandias Am-stello and he unseated J. Blackburn in the back field on the last turn of the course. j From a pood start Crawford eased Damask I back while Tassel went out with the lightly weighted I.ipingo. Amstello was also r.ite.l well back of the pace by Blackburn and the two leaders were permited to steal away into a good lead. I.ipingo was raring in improved form and Smoot kept Tass -1 .-los I after him while Crawford and Blackburn continued to wait with their mounts. That was the order when the ba- k field , was reached the second turn of the course ; and Tassel was beginning 88 show some sign- of tiring while Crawford had v rked his way up just a bit closer with Damask. Then Blackburn moved with Ams»ello and when he made a stumbling landing at the first fence in the back field be fell from the saddle a few strides later. With Amstello out of the way Crawford gradually moved up with Damask and he I was soon alongside Tassel. The man did ■ not last long and he continued until be was j at the heels of Bipingo. Kight to the last fence l.ipingo f-mght I along resolutely and the two were lapped I there. Thc:i on the way home Damask had 1 enough left to forge to the front under a i particularly smooth ride and ho was going 1 away at tit* end. Tassel was rather a distant third. The race run by I.ijiingo was ■ i deided improvement over recent starts and he should not be far away from a winning effort. Kather a cheap band met in the mile and five-sixteenths of the fifth race and it brought a victory to Ki -hard Pendings Fleetwood when he led home Clarence Buxtons Little Dae. with Buttercup the one to save third. Much, of the credit for this victory l-elongs to Johnny Maiben. He rated his mount back "f the pace and then in the stretch came the best going well out from the rail. It was a battb- through the last ci-hth. but Fleetwood had enough to hold Lit ti.- Dave safe in that drive. Q88a Sprite, racing for "Mr. Pembroke.* was winner of the four and a half furlongs Saab for juvenile fillies at the end of the card. She raced forwardly thruighout and at the end she held Harry Fayn,. Whitneys i learning saf and another Whitney was third when Wit ben t"ok that part of tbe purse. Thus ended another excellent d;iy for the Whitne silks.
