JOYNER SADDLES VICTOR Sation Wins Hollis Claiming Stakes for G. D. Widener. Equipoise Works Out Between Races at Belmont Weather Unfavorable for Sport. NEW YORK, N. Y., June 1. Andrew Jackson Joyner, the veteran trainer, sent out Sation to win the special offering of the Westchester Racing Association for George D. Widener at Belmont Park today. This was the Hollis, only a claiming fixture, and run over the six furlongs Widener Course, but it was the first racing effort for the son of Galetian and Salacia, two others that Joyner trained for Mr. Widener, owner of -this winner. The race had a net value of ,895 to the winner, and the manner in which he scored suggested that Sation will go on to much better things. Second place went to John J. Robinsons good filly Eva B., and Character was a distant third. Back of these came Old Baldy and Clarify. Another day of unseasonable weather was a decided handicap to the sport. The temperature was more like March than June, but a crowd of good proportions turned out and were rewarded with excellent sport. Then there was an added attraction when the C. V. Whitney champion, Equipoise, was worked between races in preparation for his engagement in the Metropolitan Handicap Saturday. In the Holli3 little time was lost at the barrier, and the start was a good one, though Old Baldy swerved badly and collided with Clarify shortly after the start. Sation was away in motion, and he gave evidence of considerable education when he went right on about his business. Character went after him, but he was no match for the son of Galetian, which soon drew away into a clear lead. A furlong from the finish the Widener gelding had a lead of five lengths, and it was in that last furlong that Eva B. caught and passed Character to move into second place. She gained some ground on Sation, Continued on twenty-second page. JOYNER SADDLES VICTOR Continued from first page. but he was still two lengths clear at the end. The filly had beaten the tired Character by three lengths, while Old Baldy and Clarify were always outrun. Alfred Robertson made his riding score two in a row when he won with Dunbar for "Mr." Pembroke, the racing name of Mrs. E. A. Clark and Mrs. M. M. Vanbeuren. This was the Patchogue Purse, a claiming affair and it wa3 E. R. Bradleys Fingal that raced to second place, with Mrs. John Hay Whitneys Mack Sennett saving third from Apprehensive. From a good start Apprehensive was first to show, but Fingal was right after him and Little Lad was in third place. When Sullivan roused Fingal he raced past Apprehensive to take command. At the same time Mack Sennett, on the outside, moved into second place. Little Lad had headed Apprehensive and Dunbar was back of these. Going to the stretch turn Fingal bore out badly, carryinjg Mack Sennett wide and it afforded Robertson his opportunity. He saved ground with Dunbar and in a rousing finish got him through next to the rail. As Fingal continued to bear out in the run home, Dunbar forged to the front to be the winner by a length. Fingal had beaten Mack Sennett by two lengths for second place and Apprehensive was a tired fourth. Johnny McTaggart has his first mount of the meeting in the opening dash and he brought Dr. J. P. Jones Chips home winner over a big band of maiden juvenile fillies. Mrs. John Hay Whitneys Yap was second, and Brookmeade Stables Bramble Broom finished a distant third, beating Kiltamond for that part of the purse. The steeplechase race of the day was fashioned for maidens and it resulted in a stirring finish, when George Saportas Dock Light, under a long drive, scored over F. Ambrose Clarks Three Star Special. Third went to F. A. Usher Smiths Melita, with War Eagle finishing fourth. There were two casualties in the running, when Pro Bono and Byzantine, both of which raced for the Greentree Stable, went down at the front field Liverpool. Pro Bono fell first and his stablemate fell over him. Both riders, W. Collins and M. Sims, walked from the course, apparently not seriously hurt. After Salaam was withdrawn from the fifth race it was generally agreed that the Greentree Stables Black Buddy was best and it may be just as well for the reputation of the Whitney juvenile that he was withdrawn. Black Buddy made a show of his opponents to win by. half a dozen lengths without ever being fully extended. Herowin was the one to race to second place and William Ziegler, Jr.s Zipalong was well before his stablemate Briny Deep, to be third. The only other starter, Mrs. John Hay Whitneys Front, wheeled at the start and was virtually left at the post. Herowin was the only one to give Black Buddy any semblance, of a contest. With the advantage of some seasoning, the son of Herodot went after the Bud Lerner colt, but he was soon under a drive in an effort to catch him. The winner i3 a colt of good size and excellent conformation. He has a good way of going and in this, his first start, he impressed greatly. The Anall Stables Wedding Ring, ridden by C. Kurtsinger, was a handy winner of the final race of the day. He led home J. P. Smiths Ayston, while Cain, racing for P. M. Walker, was third. The winner was a pronounced choice in the race and followed the early pace set by Ayston, disposed of him in the stretch and then drew clear. The battle for second place was a spirited one, with the honors going to the Smith campaigner in the final strides.
