UNIQUE TRAINING FEAT Special Correspondence. DUBLIN, Ireland —The veteran Philip Behan, dean of the present day Irish trainers, accomplished an unique feat at the Baldoyle meeting recently when he saddled the horses that finished one-two-three in the five-eighths Patriotic Two-Year-Old Stakes. The race was won by W. Kellys Matona, with Sir T. Dixons Cargan second and H. S. Grays High Treason third, in a field of eleven starters. Last year Behan, who is a past master in the art of developing two-year-olds, saddled the winner and runner-up in the same stake. He has saddled the winner of it four times in the last six years. Matona is a bay son of the Derby hero Spion Kop, from Molly Adare, a granddaughter of peerless Pretty Polly. He was bred by Colonel Giles Loder, and sold as a yearling at the Dublin Horse Show sales. a ■ .
