LITTLE AMERICA AGAIN Accounts for Tenth Victory of Year on Muddy Track. JVIudlarks Have Their Day at Lincoln 1 Fields Get Ready and Hasty Maiden Surprise. CRETE, 111., Sept 27 Little America, one ! of the outstanding idols of Chicago racing i Enthusiasts, proved to todays patrons of Lincoln Fields that she is just as versatile ; as she is consistent when she splashed to her tenth victory of the year on a muddy .track in the Of Thee I Sing Purse, the ; principal offering of the day. The race, over six furlongs, was Little Americas at all stages and she won easily in the remarkable .time of 1:14. M. Calvert, in the racing silks of Mrs. V. M. Duncan, had the mount ton the four-year-old daughter of High Cloud and brought her to the finish a length and tone-quarter before Portcodine. Scream fin-ashed third, leading Betty Derr, Colonial Belle, Actuarius, Very Well and Step Liz. Away fast and very much at home in the going, the winner was showing the way by a clear margin before the end of the first furlong was reached. After reaching the turn Calvert took her under strong restraint, ;with the result that Portcodine was able to draw within a neck of her and he saved ground on the turn. When lightly shaken .up entering the stretch, the winner soon asserted her superiority over Portcodine and the others and had no trouble holding a clear margin over Portcodine in the final furlong. Scream always held the others safe and . Betty Derr was at so much of a disadvantage in the mud and water that she failed to prove much of a threat at any stage. Shortly after the start Step Liz wheeled and only narrowly missed impeding several in the small field. ONLY REGULARS OUT. Unpleasant, rainy weather prevailed during the morning and right up to racing time and kept many away but those of the more ardent who turned out witnessed much of the racing under ideal overhead conditions, the clouds scattering before the field came out for the fourth race and the sun shining for the remainder of the afternoon. Although Little America ruled a pronounced choice and other of the winners were well backed, several rank outsiders cut in for a share of the honors. In the mile and one-sixteenth sixth race, the first of three contests over that route, Deemster won decisively over Inferno Lad, Blue Law, Billy Champ and six others. R. Montgomery steadied the winner along in front for seven-eighths, following which he drew away fast and at the end led Inferno Lad by five lengths. The latter was the runner-up throughout, and Blue Law came from far back to outstay Billy Champ, favorite, for the third part of the purse. Some of the long shot players ran into a golden harvest when Hasty Maiden, the Dixiana home-bred juvenile daughter of Peter Hastings and Bristow Maid, returned the longest odds of the meeting when she was first to finish among twelve juvenile maidens in the opening race at three-quarters. R. Finnerty had the mount on the neglected winner, which paid 11.40 for straight. Bianoz raced to second place, with Cicero filling the third position and Kaposia next. FAVORED BY MUDDY TRACK. Showing a liking for the mud and away fast, the winner lost little time getting to the front and, once in possession of the lead, experien;ed no real trouble retaining it. Closing with a rush, Bianco overtook Cicero, which furnished the chief contention for five-eighths, for second in the last sixteenth and Palatine and Miss Sparkling, the choices, at no time offered real encouragement for their many backers. Tadcaster, a consistent winner with the cheaper sprinters this season, added another purse to his earnings when he accounted for the three-quarters second race. Eleven opposed the W. Hinphy three-year-old, with Cayuga proving the runner-up as High Foot garnered the minor honors. A disappointing effort by Smear marked the race. Tadcaster showed good speed in the going from the start and, after holding only a short advantage over Cayuga for a half mile, quickly increased it when entering the stretch and was in fairly safe command thereafter. High Foot was a strong factor throughout and his faltering near the end scant inued on twenty-third page.. LITTLE AMERICA AGAIN Continued from first page. no doubt resulted from his falling slightly lame. Get Ready, the son of Stefan the Great, in the O. L. Foster stable, triumphed in an interesting finish and by short margins over Cresta Run and Star Brook in the third race, or Harriette Lake Claiming Purse, the second and final event for juveniles. He was good enough to outstay the sturdy belated rush of Cresta Run and Star Brook after making his own pace, but became very weary in the concluding sixteenth, and it was only by a neck that he gained the decision over Cresta Run, which had a head over Star Brook. The winner, ridden by O. Laidley, swerved badly in the stretch and, bearing over nearing the last of the six furlongs, slightly blocked Cresta Run. Patricia Grey retired after forcing the pace for four and one-half furlongs and, like Star Brook, was forced wide by the winner swinging into the stretch. Old Martie Flyhn and apprentice J. Lane proved, a winning combination in the fourth race, in which the S. Peabody racer proved master of the ten that opposed him over three-quarters. Close to the early leaders, the winner sprinted into command with a rush on the stretch turn and, opening up a big lead, came on easily to score by three lengths over Pollys Folly. Forget Not was third, six lengths away from Pollys Folly. Although the winner achieved his victory, the fifth of the year, with speed to spare, the manner In which G. Arnold restrained Pollys Folly when covering the first three-eighths, took much out of her and under smoother riding she might have been a stronger contender. Donday, third choice to Pollys Folly and Martie Flynn, found the pace too fast.
