COLD WEATHER AT JAMAICA «. Goodly Crowd of the "Faithful" Brave Wintry Weather. ♦ Two Juveniles from Tijuana, Henrietta Wild-air and Our Adele, Score — First Men-toned Takes Suffolk Stakes. ♦ NEW YORK. N. T., April 26. -It was real winter racing in winter weather for the faithful that journeyed to the Jamaica course today for the second day of the Metropolitan Jockey Clubs meeting. Cold breezes blew in from Jamaica Bay and it was anything but a comfortable place to spend the afternoon. In spite of all this a big crowd was out and the sport furnished was excellent. The stake of the afternoon was the Suffolk, at five-eighths, under claiming conditions, for juveniles. This fell to Henrietta Wildair. a filly that fell in the running of the Tijuana Futurity. It was a good day for Tijuana two-year-olds when another juvenile dash went to Our Adele, one which also raced at the Mexican course. The Suffolk was worth ,935 to the owner of the winner. Some time was lost at the barrier, for which Walter J. Salmons Polar Sea was largely to blame, but the start was a good one. with Henrietta Wildair leaving fast and Gordon Plaid, racing for the first time under the colors of Mrs. George, was last to leave. Henrietta Wildair quickly drew clear and vvas destined never to be caught. Jack OEeen, which raced so well at the Inited Hunts meeting, was the one to chase the filly throughout and he was a length and a half back of her at the end and just a head before the fast-finishing Latvia from the Greentree Stable, with Strong Policy and Gordon Plaid following in close order. The Suffolk was first run in 1903 and in 1921 it was won by Morvich, which raced through the year without a defeat and then won the Kentucky Derby of the following year. In the Suffolk, Morvich raced under the silks of A. B. Spreckels and he was later purchased by Benjamin Block, under whose colors he achieved his greatest success. The mile and seventy yards race for three-year-olds and over, which was run as the third had really more importance than the stake race of the day. It brought a victory to Walter J. Salmons Black Panther, which was well ridden by Johnny Callahan. Amber- Loiitinu ■ on twentieth Iage. COLD WEATHER AT JAMAICA Continued from first page jack, from William Woodwards Belair Stud Stable, was at his heels and three lengths further back came William Ziegler, Jr.s, Bois de Rose. Amber jack was the one to set the pace, while Maiben was content to rate Black Panther along a couple of lengths back of him, and Dolan was in third place, three lengths further back and just showing the way to Our General, a stablemate to Bois de Rose. This order was maintained to the stretch and, swinging for home, for an instant it seemed that Amberjack was going to stick it out, but Maib.ti had saved plenty for that last eighth and when he shook up Black 1anther, the son of Black Toney quickly drew alongside, then was on by and. though he only won by a length, it was a comparatively easy score. This drive through the stretch took the j first two well out before the others and Bois I de Rose finished fast to be third. The dis- j appointment of the running was I»olan. He tir. 1 badly under punishment and was always well back of the leaders. Black Panther is one of the Salmon nominees for the Kentucky Derby and this mile and seenty yards in 1:4414 was at least a truly useful work as a part of his preparation. Dolan and Bois de Rose are also i Derby eligibh-s. but on this showing it would seem that Black Panther holds both of them perfectly safe. Our Adele, tlie daughter of Wildair and Napera which races for the Jewell Stable, was winner of the dash for two-year-olds that was the second offering. She is a de- lopment of the Tijuana meeting anil was a good thiid to the Willis Sharpe Kilmer pair. Sun Meddler and Suncheii, in the running of the Tijuana Futurity. At the end she was a length before Distraction, a hide colt that races for the Wheatey Stable, and he, in turn, beat Jefferson Livingstons Complication by a couple of lengths for second place. McAtee had the mount on Our Adele and the score completed a double for that talented jockey. Eittle time was lost at the barrier and omplication and Distraction were the ones to cut out of the running, but Our Adele was not far back of them, while the others were not stn ng enough, with the Rancoeas Stables pair. Nassak and Bewolf, far back. Complication was through at the head of the stretch and there Distraction looked all over the winner, but in the final eighth Our Adee put him away rather handily, though he saved second place with plenty j spare.
