AL NEMAN JAMAICA REPEATER ; Third Straight at New York for McHvain Racer. Pardee Makes Finish of Feature Most Sensational of Day Stimulator Adds to Earnings. NEW YORK, N. Y., May 25. William Woodwards Pardee had all the best of the start in the feature of a good card at Jamaica today but in the most sensational finish of the afternoon he was beaten by Mrs. H. Mcllvains Al Neiman. Soundly beaten a few strides from the finish, the son of Sir Gallahad III. was coming again and in another stride would have turned defeat into victory. All of this was in a race of a mile and seventy yards that engaged four rather high class platers, and Al Neiman raced in his best form when the time was 1:42. John McPhersons Stimulator was a handy winner of .the fifth. This was a mile and a sixteenth for the cheapest sort, and the son of Stimulus was good enough to lead from end to end. Walter E. Coburns Daily News raced to second place, with B. L. Meyers Integrity beating Alarm Clock for third. No time was lost at the barrier, and the start was a good one. Pascuma hustled Stimulator along until he was clear in the short run to the first turn. There he took hold of his mount and rated him for the remainder of the trip, saving ground all the way. Daily News soon moved into second place, and he consistently held to that place, while Integrity was third virtually all the way. Before the stretch was reached Stimulator had the others driving back of him in the stretch, and Pascuma was looking back and alert to the end, where his winning margin was a length. Daily News, had beaten Integrity by three lengths, and the last named was six lengths before Alarm Clock. The Continued on twenty-second page. AL NEMAN JAMAICA REPEATER Continued from first page. Butler gelding had run a dull race and was at no time a contender. While the racing was conducted under threatening skies, there was no rain to mar the sport and the track was at its best. The crowd was of goodly proportions and there was abundance of enthusiasm. As the four that raced in the feature moved up to the barrier Cassidy sprung it, with the result that Pardee beat the others away clearly. Malley made every use of the advantage and he rushed right out to furnish a fast pace. Luggage broke second, ,but soon dropped far back and it was Spring Fever that went after the Woodward colt. The Butler colt carried Pardee along at a pace that saw the first half run in :47 and there was no letting down of that speed when the three-quarters mark was made in 1:12. Al Neiman was going smoothly well back of jthe leading pair, while Luggage was at all times a distant last. It was not until the stretch was reached that Spring Pever weakened in his chase of Pardee, but he had played his part in using up the colt. Pardee was weakening himself in the final eighth and there Al Neiman made his challenge. Seventy yards from the finish Al Neiman had Pardee beaten and it appeared he would have been an easy winner but, as Knessi took command, he foolishly eased his mount ever so slightly. Malley was still hard at work on Pardee and it was in the last few strides that the Sir Gallahad III. colt came again until, to many, it seemed he had nipped Al Neiman in the last stride. Knessi was little help after his error in not persevering with his mount, but Al Neiman had saved the day by a short head. Spring Fever, when hopelessly beaten for the place, was eased up to be fifteen lengths away, but he was half a dozen lengths before Luggage. Mrs. A. Carfanos Chief A. was, a handy winner of the opening dash at five furlongs for plater juveniles and he ran a smart race when he covered the distance in :59. Mrs. T. J. Lewis Salesring was the one to take second place and third was the portion of John J. Robinsons Lady Tabasco, when she outfinished Forceful. Andy Schuttingers Bonnie Cain graduated from the maiden ranks in the second race, at six furlongs. This was a dash for cheap non-winners and to score the son of Vulcain ran down Maxwell Howards Miss Snow, while William Gallaghers Old Honesty saved third from Sand Runner. The third was another chance for maidens over the six furlongs distance, being a split of the second race. This proved easy for Mrs. W. T. Andersons Lebam. M. Vaccaros Leroline finished second and Thomas Meades Slewfoot barely saved third from Style Corner. .
