CHERRY TART IN FAST RACE ; ; Shows Great Speed in Accounting for Jamaicas Closing Day Feature. Runs Five-Eighths in :59 to Easily Take Measure of Bramble Broom With Murmuring Disappointing Third. NEW YORK, N. Y., May 26 Cherry Tart, the juvenile daughter of Dominant and Cherry Bounce, which races for the Green-tree Stable, was winner of the best offering of the Metropolitan Jockey Club at Jamaica Friday. It was a five furlongs dash for two-year-old fillies, known as the Merry Lark, and to score, the smart filly ran the distance in :59, beating the Brookmeade Stables Bramble Broom by a wide distance, while C. V. Whitneys Murmuring was third. The only other starters were Hindu Queen and Loyal Lassie, and they were both badly outrun. It was the closing day of the Jamaica meeting and, with perfect racing weather, a big crowd was out. The recent good weather has resulted in the meeting showing a profit, while there was a fear earlier that the racing would be a losing venture. In the Merry Lark there was great disappointment over the showing of Murmuring. The Whitney miss, in her one start, had impressed greatly and she was generally looked upon as one of the comparatively sure winners of the afternoon. But there was an excuse for the daughter of Mad Hatter, when Robertson took her back shortly after the start and when he asked her to run later she would not freely extend herself. It is possible that even had Murmuring shown her best Cherry Tart would have been winner, for the Greentree Stable filly showed a better turn of speed than in any of her previous efforts. In the early racing Bramble Broom went along closely with the winner, but before the stretch was reached she had enough of the pace and dropped back. Then Coucci sent Cherry Tart into a long lead and at the finish she was in hand and six lengths clear. Bramble Broom had beaten Murmuring a length for second place and the other two fillies of the field had cut no figure in the running. James Butlers Stormy Dawn gave Sylvio Coucci his second winning mount of the afternoon when he was winner of the fourth, a six furlongs dash for platers. It was a surprise score and rather a sensational one, for three furlongs from the finish the son of Vulcain was running last of his company. Coucci slipped through on the inside in the stretch to land his mount the winner by a length and a half. Wedding Ring raced to second place and Condescend barely nosed out Manya for third. Mrs. A. Carfanos Mae Sweep was in a running mood in the three-quarters of the second and she won rather handily over Makalu, with James Butlers Forewarned easily beating Memories Dear for third.
