MILLS THROWN AT JAMAICA — — • / Star Rider Falls From Iseult in Belle Harbor Purse. ♦ Edelweiss Accounts for Purse — Rider Sent to Hospital for Further Examination — Weather Good. ♦ NEW YORK, N. Y., May 22.— Edelweiss, the three-year-old daughter of Chicle and Helvetia, by a sensational rush in the final furlong, was winner of the best offering of the Metropolitan Jockey Club at Jamaica. This was the Belle Harbor Purse, for fillies of that age. And in the same race "Hank Mills, riding Iseult, a stablemate of the winner, had a spectacular fall when he ran his mount up on the heels of Dark Love to have her stumble badly and hurl him from the saddle. At the time of Mills accident he was rushing Iseult through and she was moving up so rapidly that she promised to take command before the stretch was reached. Then, as she jumped on the Kilmer filly, she twisted about, to stumble badly, and the lad was hurled several feet in the air. Fortunately he was promptly on his feet, but he was so badly shaken up by the fall that he was taken to the Mary Immaculate Hospital for further examination. Edelweiss, by his sensational rush, passed both Willis Sharpe Kilmers Dark Love and A. C. Schwartz Tickory Tock, to win by a nose in the final strides. It was Tickory Tock that took second place, and Dark Love had quit so badly that she was a length and a half back of the first two. Another day of delightful weather resulted in a big attendance. The track was at its best and the sport interesting. In the feature the start was good, but both Dark Love and Tickory Tock were so much more alert than the others that they at once jumped into a lead. Iseult was racing back of them and she soon had a long lead over her stablemate, Edelweiss, with Eva B. and Easy Day in the rear. After leaving the back stretch Mills made his rush with Iseult that cost him the fall. He was trying to go through where there was no room, and no one could be blamed but himself. The filly was rushed right up on Dark Love and then came the fall. In the meantime Tickory Tock was wearing down the Kilmer miss and they were fighting it out in the last furlong, when Malley made his rush with Edelweiss. The daughter of Chicle ran a fast final furlong, but the finish was so close that the actual result Continued on twenty-second page. MILLS THROWN AT JAMAICA Continued from first page. was in doubt until the numbers were displayed. G. B. Dioguardis Scara Glen was winner over the maiden juveniles that raced in the opening five furlong dash, but she was not confirmed in that position until R. J. Fisher, who had the mount on Dennis King, was questioned. Dennis King had been knocked completely out of the running, rounding out of the back stretch, and Fischer, losing his stirrups, narrowly missed being unseated. It appeared that "Hank" Mills, who rode the winner, was responsible. He came over with his mount sharply and besides Dennis King, others that met with serious interference, as a result, were Pretty Peg and Wrackdale. But no action was taken by the stewards. Cabochon, one who had escaped I the interference, took the place, and Moiras 1 Chief beat Wrackdale for third. Spring Fever won another race for James Butler when he galloped home in front of rather a nice band of platers in the second at six furlongs. Rubio, from the Geneseo Stable, was second, with Cabezo saving third from Little Lad. The only other starter was Lebam, and she was outrun all the way to finish last of the five. Mrs. M. Cassidys Physician was an easy winner of the second juvenile race of the day. It was a condition affair over the five furlong distance, and really no contest for the son of Wise Counsellor and Dig Up. William H. Gallaghers Morway raced to second place and John J. Robinsons Lady Tabasco was third. The only other starters were Hindu Queen and Kozak and both were badly outrun all the way. John McPhersons Stimulator, under a well timed ride by Tony Pascuma, proved best of the cheap sprinters that were brought together in the fifth, a dash of six furlongs. Fred E. Krafts Memories Dear finished second, with William H. Gallaghers Quick Step saving third from Phantom Legion. M. L. and A. C. Schwartz were on hand to witness the effort of Hindu Queen in the third race. Louis Maul of the Tropical Park Jockey Club made his first appearance of the season. He is recovering from a leg ailment. Tred Avon arrived at Belmont Park Monday afternoon and will be trained for a match race with Top Flight. Spanish Myth, a four-year-old steeple* chaser, died Monday,
