ACE AMONG SPRINTERS Panetian Hailed as Miamis Best When He Wins the Granada. Leads Martis and Don Leon, With Flying Heels, a Victim of Rough Racing, Unplaced. MIAMI, Fla., March 10. Panetian proved himself the best sprinter of the Miami season when he was again winner at Tropical Park this afternoon. This was the third score under the silks of C. Leroy King, who purchased him from George D. Widener, and it came in the six furlongs of the Granada Handicap, the feature of an excellent card of sport. Dewey Benthams Martis raced to the place and R. W. Collins Don Leon saved third from Vacillate. Flying Heels was back of the Volta mare, though it was generally agreed before the race that he was the one best calculated to beat the son of Galetian. A drop in temperature did not deter a big crowd from coming out and the volume of speculation was such that in several of the races there were many "shut out" from the wagering windows. The Granada Handicap was not without its rough riding and after the finish O. Clelland, who had the mount on Don Leon, was set down for five days by the stewards for having roughed both Vacillate and Flying Heels in the running. PLACED OUTSIDE STALLS. Panetian, as usual, was taken to a position outside the stalls and he beat the field away, leaving in full stride. Silver Cord, making his first appearance under silks since November of 1930, was the one to go with the King sprinter and Flying Heels was third, with Martis following and Don Leon not far away. Then the interference developed and French Lass, as well as the other two, suffered seriously by the crowding. In the meantime Panetian continued to show the way and just before the turn out of the back stretch was reached Silver Cord weakened slightly and he was taken up by Cor-bett until he dropped back to last place-Flying Heels was unable to improve his position and Vacillate was doing her best, but Martis charged around on the outside until he had reached second place and in the stretch he was a real menace, but Riley kept Panetian at his task and he was safely over the line the winner by a length. Don Leon was going well when too late and was beaten only a neck for the place by Martis, with Vacillate at his heels. NOAJOYCE SCORES. J. C. Treats Noajoyce defeated a band of platers in the five and a half furlongs dash that was the initial race, but he was doing his best to score from George L. Arvins Chiefs Camille, and Chianti beat Patrick Callahan for third. At the rise of the barrier Crack Play refused to start and got off so badly as to have no chance, but the others were in good alignment. Madeley at once sent Noajoyce into command and rushed him along until he was well clear. Mills had Chiefs Camille running second and Nim the Nymph was third, while Patrick Callahan led the others. Mills nursed Chiefs Camille along within striking distance until near the stretch turn, where he called on her vigorously, but she could not run down Noajoyce, though she had gained until beaten only half a length. This final rush took her out three lengths before Chianti, which, , through being reserved back of the early pace, held on in better fashion than usuaL Hank Mills showed real riding skill when he had G. Crawfords Nonana home winner of the second race at five and one-half furlongs. It was a close fit and he nursed he filly along all through the stretch to earn the decision by a scant half length. Harum Scarum, a field horse, saved second place by only a head and then followed Parties and Brown Supinet, also in close order. From a good start Mills went out to show the way with the winner, but he had her under a slight restraint as Sunny Susan and Brown Supinet raced after her. Sunny Susan moved up on the inside and when Brown Supinet was on the outside they had Nonana in rather close quarters between them when tho stretch was reached. Mills was holding his mount together and kept her at her. task in tho short run through the straight and though it seemed certain she would be beaten, she shook off Brown Supinet and then barely had enough left to withstand the rush of Harum Scarum in tho final sixteenth. Sunny Susan hung on Continued on second page. ACE AMONG SPRINTERS .Continued from first page. well and Parties would have beaten her for third in a few more strides. Mills made his score two in a row when under a good ride he had Smith and Williams Bill Southam winner in a close finish over Mrs. R. Pollards Spanfair, and W. Hinphys Common was an easy third before Lucky Racket The start was a good one and Medicine Bow, breaking from the outside stall, was the one to cut out the running. Herkimer was second rounding the first turn, but he soon gave way to Common, and Mozer rated the son of St. James back of the leader through the back stretch. In the meantime Mills was moving up on the outside with Bill Southam, and it was apparent at the half mile ground that he was destined to cut a figure in the running while Spanfair, after a slow beginning, was also making up ground steadily. Medicine Bow had enough when the stretch was reached, and as he showed signs of tiring, Mills made his move with Bill Southam, and the colt responded cheerfully to the call. It was a fight all the way home and Common tired under the punishment as Bill Southam took command to be over the line the winner by half a length. Spanfair also ran down the Hinphy plater to be second by half a length, and Lucky Racket was fourth but four lengths back. George Dominick has taken over M. Clancys book. The latter is a shifty sort of a rider. He rode thirty-eight winners last year. Clancy will accompany Dominick to St Johns Park. Montgomery also goes from here to St. Johns. ,
