MACADAM CONSISTENT WINNER ] , • | Juvenile Daughter of Macaw Earns Third Jamaica Purse. I f 1 € Pollyanna Purse Heads List of New York c Attractions — Physician Accounts for i Opening Race. • i NEW YORK, N. Y., May 17.— Macadam, j the game juvenile daughter of Macaw and Miss Cameo, which has shared in the purse i in each of her nine starts, won her third I race of the Jamaica meeting for Joe Ed- wards today. This was the Pollyanna Purse, . a five furlongs dash that engaged two-year-old fillies. Well back of the Edwards . miss came the Greentree Stables Cherry Tart, and Morway, racing for William H. Gallagher, just saved third from Watch Her, the only other starter being Lady Ken-neally. This filly dash, the best offering of the afternoon, was tremendously popular with , a large crowd that was out for the sport. The promise that Mrs. Silas B. Masons Preakness winner was to be shown in a trial during the afternoon was an added . attraction that evidently had much to do with the good attendance. The day was bright, but it was quite chilly, while the track was not at its best. The rain of Tuesday gave the track rather a ; muddy surface, but there was a firm bottom that made good time possible in the dif- , ferent events. Macadam did not break any too well in the Pollyanna, but the five left in good alignment, and Mills sent her around from , her outside position until she was soon showing the day. She was permitted to open up a lead of two lengths when Mills took hold of her head and rated her along at a pace that held the lead. Watch Her was going along second, closely attended by Morway, while Cherry Tart was a bit slower finding her racing legs. It was not until near the stretch turn that Cherry Tart had caught Morway, and a furlong out she had disposed of Watch Her. In the final furlong the Greentree filly raced well under a drive by Coucci, but she was no match for Macadam when the Edwards miss was past the line the winner by two lengths. Cherry Tart had beaten Morway a length for second place, and the Gallagher filly barely nosed out Watch Her for third place. Lady Kenneally was always outrun to finish farther back of the field after having left the post slowly. Mrs. Marion Cassidys Physician proved easily best of the maiden juveniles that met in the opening dash at five furlongs. He won by a wide margin over Mrs. George D. Wideners Stocks and Robert L. Gerrys Fast Chance barely saved third from Dennis King. The start was a good one, but Robertson at once rushed Physician out until he was four lengths clear of the field. Then he took hold of the son of Wise Counsellor and permitted him to gallop along in his own fashion. At the end he was in hand with a winning margin of five lengths. Bel Tempo, the faint-hearted daughter of High Time and Belvale that raced for J. H. Louchheim, stuck it out for the six furlongs to win the second race from a big field of cheap ones. Mrs. A. Carfanos Mae Sweep was second with Andy Schuttingers Bonnie Cain saving third from Our Sallie. George McMitchells Oriley came back with another winning effort when he scored in the fourth. This engaged a big field of the cheap ones, but it furnished a good contest, though Oriley was winner by a comfortable margin. As in their previous meeting. Robert Greens Oconnell was again second and third went to Mrs. Matt Colfords Hey There. Coucci lost little time in sending Oriley into the lead and he hustled the son of Sting along all the way. Jean Brown attempted to go with him, but she did not last long and then it was Oconnell that took up the chase. At the head of the stretch he was at the heels of Oriley, but that cost him plenty and in the final furlong Oriley came away to be winner by four lengths. Harold Thurber left for Montreal, where he will ride as a free lance during the eastern Canadian season, returning to Saratoga for the summer.
