PRDiCELLA HAS FINE RECORD Makes It Four Out of Last Tive by Winning1 Pettibone Purse. Jockey J. Sylvester, Riding Itso, Is Injured in Spill at Bainbridgo Heavy Rain Affects Track. GEAUGA LAKE. Ohio, Aug. 26. Prin-cella, a Spanish Prince . II. three-yearrold filly, racing for I. S. Shafer, made her score of victories on the Ohio tracks four out of the last five, with one second, when she captured the Pettibone Purse today, a mile and seventy yards race for fillies and mares. The consistent Society Talk was second and Little Toots third. As in all her recent races, Princella had the early foot of the party, though she did not jump at once into.the lead, and she held her speed throughout the contest to win by about a length. Her victory was popular, although there was considerable support for: the Patterson representative, which finished second. With the exception of the first event, the races were contested over a sloppy track. It was Ladies Day, and an excellent crowd was on hand. Jockey L. Fage registered his initial success of the meeting when Semester wore down the pacemaker, Favorit n., during the last seventy yards of the opening dash and won going away. Favorit H. had no serious opposition for second. Regusted, after acting unruly at the post, easily raced over the" others into third place during the stretch run. Unlucky and McKell both tired badly after showing early speed. A serious accident came with the running of this race. Mike Carey and Itso, both breaking forwardly, led out of the chute. Upon entering the main track, Mike Carey, when leading slightly, apparently stumbled and fell. Don Pablo fell over him. Jockey Bpganowski, who had the mount on Mike Carey, escaped with a severe shaking up, but was forced to cancel his remaining engagements. Jockey J. Sylvester, who had the mount on Itso, was not so fortunate. He was unconscious when picked up. A hurried examination at the temporary hospital on the grounds indicated that he had suffered a fractured skull and internal injuries. He was rushed to St. Alexis Hospital in Cleveland and is in a critical condition. As the horses were at. the post for the second race it became very dark and rain, came down in torrents. The race was run in a driving downpour, making it impossible to accurately distinguish the colors. Sin-gleam appeared to have led throughout, but at the end was doing her best to stall off Princess Peri. Fountain was a forward factor throughout and outlasted Major Gomez for third by a narrow margin. Betty Shinn left the maiden ranks when she came strongly on the outside of the leaders through the stretch and nosed out Lavender Lady, the pacemaker, in the final stride of the third race. It was a rousing finish and the superior effort of jockey H. West was the principal factor in her success. Lavender Lady held on with determination in the final test and was easily best of the others. Late News came from far back to save, third.
