THIRD STRAIGHT VICTORY Princess Tina Continues on Her Winning Way at Aqueduct. Adds Clover Stakes to List of Triumphs-Parole Handicap Captured by Prince of Bourbon. NEW YORK. N. Y., June 23. Princess Tina, the J. E. Madden-bred daughter of Spanish Prince II. and Sonatina, that races for the Audley Farm Stable, was winner of the Clover Stakes, at five-eighths, for two-year-old fillies, at Aqueduct today, adding just ,675 to her good score. It was her third consecutive victory. Nixie, from the consistent Wheatley Stable, took second place, and Walter M. Jef fords Bateau saved third from the Brookmeade Stables Stefally. It was a good day of racing that was furnished by the Queens County Jockey -Club and, with delightful weather, the crowd was a surprisingly large one. Ten raced in the Clover Stakes, and there was little delay at the post. The start was a good one, and Bateau and Stefally were first to be unuer way and, while Princess Tina was away well enough, she. was rather badly bottled up on the inner rail. It was going to the elbow that Fields made an effort to come from the rail, and as he did Princess Tina was bumped badly by Stefally, both suffering a bit. From these difficulties Princess Tina finally extricated herself, and at end she drew out to be the winner by a length and a half. In the meantime, Nixie had been racing strongly in the middle of the course and she outfinished Bateau to take second place by half a length, and the Jeffords filly was just a nose before Stefally. The performance of Catsplay, from the Greentree Stable, which raced with Nitouche and Glade from the same establishment, was a decidedly dull one and below her recent form. R. T. WILSONS COLORS. Richard T. Wilson furnished the winner of the five-eighths mile race that was first on the card, while H. W. Maxwells Loveken, the publics choice along with her stable-mate Brahman, was second, and C. B. Forbes Strong Policy, third. Although fifteen faced the barrier and started it was always a two-horse race, with the winner and Loveken dominating the race from the start. Loveken was first to show from the barrier, with North Woods lapped on him and holding his piace under restraint. McCarthy, on the -winner, permitted the favorite to show the way to the stretch turn, where he called on North Woods, u.nd the" son of Tall" Timber responded readily, raced into the lead easily and was going away at the finish. Loveken tried gamely to match the winners speed but could not keep up and fell back slowly, but easily held the remainder safe for second place. Strong Policy was close up from the start, was pocketed near the half-mile post but, once, clear, made up ground quickly and, finishing gamely, headed Lady Jule near the end for third money. Ebony Maid showed fine speed for a half-mile, followed the leaders closely, but tired badly in the stretch and quit. Bisque was another that raced well in the early stages but could not keep pace in the stretch. STEEPLECHASE TO SAINT PANCRAS. Public support was almost evenly divided between three of the starters in the steeplechase, but finally, just before post time, the support for High Court sent him to the post a lukewarm favorite over Beau Brummel III. and Saint Pancras. The latter proved to be best in the race over the about-two-miles course and, jumping well, showed the way on the second turn of the field and, under a drive at the end, outstayed High Court and was slowly drawing away from the latter on the flat. Out of the six that started only one horse failed to finish, Beau Brummel III. breaking down after completing the fifteen jumps. Mantonian took third place by a rush at the end after making up considerable ground. St. Lawrence, jumping well, showed the way over the first four obstacles, with the winner, High Court and Beau Brummel III. following him closely. Near the finish Byers called on Saint Pancras and the latter easily moved up and took command. From there to the finish the Rabelais gelding held High Court safe and, after straightening out for the final drive, drew away from the Sewick-ley juniper and won easily. Mantonian was far back until near the finish, where he began to move up and, continuing gamely under hard riding, got up near the end to down Double Tip for third place. The Lexington Stables Prince of Bourbon and W. A. Wollmans Washakie staged one of the most exciting finishes of the day, when only a head separated them at the finish of the one mile Parole Handicap, third on the program. From a good start, McAuliffe rushed Amberjack into the lead and, by the time the half-mile post was reached, the Belair Studs colt was two lengths in front, with Cartoonist right after him and showing the way, by a length, to Candy Hog. Prince of Bourbon in the first quarter was right at the heels of the leader, but Robinson took him back and allowed Cartoonist and Candy Hog to. race the leader. " Amberjack held his lead to the three-quarters post, where Washakie made his move and raced from the rear to take the lead. In the meantime, Robinson had called on Prince of Bourbon and, when Washakie raced Amberjack into defeat, Prince of Bourbon also passed him and, challenging Washakie for the lead, raced closely lapped on him to the head of the stretch. From there to the finish the leading pair fought it out, with Prince of Bourbon not to be denied, and he poked his head in front just before the finish was reached. Right at the end Cartoonist was doing his best to outstay Seventh Son, and barely managed to keep going long enough to save third money. Clarence Herbert returned from Covington, Ky., where he went ten days ago upon receipt of news of the serious illness of his mother who later succumbed. Interment was in the family plot at that point. Jockey Simon was suspended for three racing days by the stewards of the meeting on the report of the patrol judge, who turned him in as guilty of crossing High Star in the. fourth race Wednesday as the horses were leaving the barrier.
