MISS TULSAS SIXTH Adds Another Victory to List of Successes Achieved This Year. Jack Howards Filly Outlasts Miss Melody in Fast and Remarkably Game Finish. CICERO, 111., Aug. 7. Jack Howard, Kentucky horseman and breeder, who is campaigning two of the most consistent fillies in the country in Advising Anna and Miss Tulsa, saddled the latter four-year-old daughter of Tryster and Tuscalo for her sixth victory in seven starts this year when she outgamed the younger Miss Melody, owned by Stuyvesant Peabody, in the six and one-half furlongs fifth race at Hawthorne here today. This was one of the more attractive races on an average Monday program and, with-the Howard filly ruling at odds-on, her success was a popular happening of an afternoon which saw a large crowd brave the threatening skies to see the second week of the Chicago Business Mens Racing Associations season under way. Only three others competed in the dash and as the winner and runner-up drove to the finish a head apart, they were eight lengths in front of Mountain Elk, which accounted for the minor honors by five lengths over Burning Feet and French Knight. The winners courage turned defeat into victory when within a few strides of the end. After rating Miss Melody off the winners early pace, J. Westrope sent the Pea-body three-year-old to the front with a surprise rush in the stretch, but Miss Tulsa outfinished her in the closing thirty yards, where L. Balaski handled her strongly and Westropes cleverness went for naught. Through the stretch the two leaders drew far away from the others, and their pretty duel was one of the highlights of the afternoon. FOURTH STRAIGHT SUCCESS. The winners victory marked her fourth in successive starts on Chicago tracks this summer, and she has not tasted defeat since leaving Hialeah Park, where she accounted for two of three engagements in February. A light rain was falling as the field came out for the Gateway Purse, but it hardly laid the dust and lasted only a short time. In the Gateway Purse, which was offered as the sixth race, Westrope again finished second when his mount, the favorite, Dusky Devil, was nosed out by C. Van Dusens Ted Clark, which was coupled in the betting with Dixi-anas Spartan Lady. Two and one-half lengths back, One Chance drove to the finish in third place, and Edith A., which began poorly, was fourth, leading three others. The winner and the choice set the pace throughout, and their tussle in the stretch compared with that put on by the leaders in the sprint. W. D. Wright sent the winner past Dusky Devil and into clear command approaching the far turn, where Westrope eased up the favorite, and, after regaining the lead in the stretch, Dusky Devil tired, yet barely fell short in his desperate attempt to keep in front of the stubborn victor. From her poor start Edith A. could not get to the leaders, and One Chance took third place from the C. E. Hamilton filly by two lengths. SIGNALMAN MAKES GOOD. Racing to his good trials, the Audley Farm Stables Signalman, won .at the first asking when he defeated ten other maiden juvenile colts and geldings in the first race, for which the distance was five and one-half furlongs. Although he exhibited nothing particularly striking and came through on the inside of the leaders in the final drive, the winner, a son of High Cloud and Sister Ship, scored by a length, a margin that probably would have brought him through the winner had he been forced to come outside the leaders. Dogmata, which set much of the pace and outgamed Scotch Pepper in the final stages, was second, a neck before the latter, while Boy Valet saved fourth money. In swerving near the end, Dogmata slightly impeded Scotch Pepper, but as the latter was tiring badly, it probably had no bearing on the. result. The second race, engaging nine over six and one-half furlongs, resulted in a nose finish in which Fiddler held the small margin over Sad Knight. They were more than two lengths before Gunfire, with Prometheus next and Blackstrap, the favorite, among the five others. The choice, along Continued on twenty-second page. MISS TULSAS SIXTH Continued from first page. with Prometheus and Whizz James, fell before the placed trio in the stretch run, where the winner was lucky to save ground and, after getting to the front, barely lasted to earn the purse over the stubborn Sad Knight. The winner, owned by A. Pelleteri, was ridden by E. De Camillis. With Miss Flip, -which was installed the choice, giving a rather erratic performance, in which she greatly reduced her chances by bearing out badly in the stretch, Coequel and Social Service succeeded in leading her to the finish of the third race. Coequel was always in front and after reaching the final furlong with a tiifle more than a lengths margin over Social Service, increased it by a length during the subsequent run to the wire in which Social Service managed to keep in the van of the favorite long enough to take second place by a nose. The second choice, Ytfin, crowded by Miss Flip a furlong from the finish, was fourth in the field of eleven. A. Pelleteri saddled his second winner of the day when Sister Zoe, veteran Paul Weidel mare that has been a consistent winner for H. C. Murnans Four Oaks Stock Farm, triumphed over five others of her sex at one mile and a sixteenth, in the fourth race. Peace Lady raced to second place, with Reverberate third. The favorite, Luna Mica, which quit badly after leading into 7 the stretch; Sun Teatime, and Tryandagain completed the field. Under a well-judged ride at the hands of Ii. Ruder, the winner readily moved from behind the pace at her riders call and, after drawing into a lead of three lengths in the stretch, was safe from Peace Lady, which began in a tangle and finished gamely. Reverberate gave a steady performance and outgamed Sun Teatime in the final strides. s i l L : I : : l , l i E i , 5 1 - 1
