SPEED BOAT WINS TEST Three-Year-Old Fillies in Stake Feature at Saratoga. Barn Swallow Loses by Head to Riddle Filly -Race Is Marred by Poor Start. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., Aug. 7. Samuel D. Riddles Speed Boat, in a rousing finish, was winner of the Test Stakes of the Saratoga Association this afternoon. It was a seven furlong race confined to the three-year-old fillies, and closely lapped on her at the end was Edward R. Bradleys Barn Swallow, with Joseph E. Wideners White Lies third. The prize had a net value of ,820 to the winner. It was unfortunate that the race was marred by a bad start and Speed Boat was particularly lucky in getting away in full stride, while Kurtsinger was unable to get Black Queen away with the others and Edelweiss, winner of the Coaching Club American Oaks, was another that left sluggishly. With delightful racing weather another big crowd was out for the sport. The track was at its best and the racing abounded in interest. There was a considerable post delay in the Test and as the barrier went up, Enactment, the stablemate to Black Queen, was first to show her head in front, but she was almost at once headed by Speed Boat. Gilbert rushed the daughter of Man o War along until she was a length and a half clear and it was Barn Swallow that was chasing after her with White Lies outrunning the others. Enactment was unable to keep up with the pace and she dropped back badly until Black Queen, the unfortunate one at the start, moved up to head her in the vain chase of the Riddle miss. Barn Swallow was hanging on to second place and White Lies, saving ground on the inside, was as resolutely hanging on to third position. GDLBERTS STRONG FINISH. In the final furlong Speed Boat was tiring and it took all of Gilberts skill and energy to keep her going to earn the decision by a head. Barn Swallow was wearing her down at every stride, but was one short at the line to lose by a head. This pair was out three lengths before White Lies and Black Queen, after closing an immense gap, was just beaten a head for the short end of the purse. Notebook and Edelweiss, both of which, with Barn Swallow, were required to give away considerable weight to Speed Boat, followed closely and Enactment, after her early flash of speed, was last. The second best race of the day was .a six furlong claiming handicap that engaged nine platers of the better variety. William Ziegler, Jr.s Cattail was winner, . with Broad Lights, from the Geneseo Stable, taking second place, while F. A. Burtons Dyak closed a big gap- to take third from Sweet Scent by a narrow margin. After some delay at the post the field was sent off in good alignment, but Fronk at once took up with Dyak, while Caterwaul was a bit slow to find his stride. Broad Lights had been more alert than the others and was just showing his head before Fredrick and then came Irenes Bob and Silk Flag in close order. Irenes Bob was in command at the end of the first furlong, but Broad Lights, racing outside of him, was in close attendance and Cattail, in third place, was showing the way to Silk Flag. Fredrick was dropping back slightly, but he had a good lead on Clarify. DYAK VICTIM OF POOR RIDE. Dyak, running along on the inside and purely on his own courage, came next but he was four lengths away and Fronk was not making any noticeable effort to have him improve his position. As the stretch was reached Irenes Bob showed signs of tiring under his impost and Cattail, moving through on the inside, was a close second. Broad Lights had raced around on the outside at some loss of ground and he was going strongly in third place. Clarify and Silk Flag were on the inside and going well when each was blocked in an effort to come through. " Right at the end Irenes Bob tired badly, Cattail drew away to be past the line winner by a length. Broad Lights, on the outside, outlasted the others to take second place by a length and a half and then came Dyak, which was fairly running over horses in the final furlong with little help from Fronk. Continued on twenty-second vaaeJ SPEED BOAT WINS TEST Continued from first page. He had beaten Sweet Scent a head and Clarify was close, after him. As the race vwas run it suggested that Dyak was best and with different riding he would have probably been the winner. The opening race was a five and a half furlongs dash for maiden juveniles of the plater variety and it resulted in a comparatively easy victory for Joseph E. Wideners Hasty Belle. Cabochon, from the Brook-meade Stable, raced to second place, with Pinbud, from the Pinetree Farm Stable, saving third from Rose Parade. Before the start in this race Micabil ran away with G. Elston and he galloped the full five and a half furlongs distance here before he was pulled up. The start was a bit straggling when Guy Falgon, Sun Probate, Red Jug, Come Seven and Kings Minstrel were off so badly as to have scant chance. Hasty Belle left in the first flight and Mack Garner at once sent her into the lead. Once showing the way, he took hold of the daughter of Haste and was content to hold a position just a head before Cabochon, which was in second place and racing well out from the rail. Rose Parade and Speedmore were in close attendance and Pinbud was not far away. It was not until safe in the stretch, where Garner saved ground, that he asked the filly for her best. As he shook her up she drew away readily and at the finish she was two lengths clear. Pinbud had finished with a rush in the final furlong and she was only beaten a matter of inches for second place by Cabochon. Rose Parade was at the heels of these and Little Corporal was a close fifth. First of the two races over the mile and a furlong- distance, for cheap ones, was run as the second. It brought victory to Water-i way, racing for McKinley Bryant, with E. Kanes Bub McFarland taking third from s B. L. Meyers Enchanter, the one that set i the pace. l It was a good start and Enchanter, leav-L ing from the outside position, was at once rushed along into a long lead that saw him L showing the way by four lengths as he swung into the back stretch. Backgammon : was rating along back of him and he was I half a dozen lengths back of Waterway. The others followed along well separated : and Wise Advocate was last. : Coucci kept Enchanter racing right along l in his long lead as the field travelled , through the back stretch and he was going l along so easily he seemed to have an ex- cellent chance to stick it out for the nine i furlongs. Backgammon was soon under pressure in an effort to catch him and still E Waterway plodded along back of these two. i It was not until the stretch was reached , that Enchanter showed signs of tiring. 5 There it was Waterway and not Backgam-, mon that headed him. Enchanter had quit 1 so badly that the tired Backgammon took - second place, a length and a half before 1 him, while Wise Advocate, under a weak ride, had closed a big gap to be another three lengths away. Rhodesia, which now races for Mrs. E. A. Burke, was an easy winner of the fifth race, the second at a mile and a furlong that engaged cheap ones. He won with - plenty to spare over ,Mrs. Kathleen Jesber-e gers Brandon Prince and Frederick A. Grif- fiths Rock Coventry saved third from Garlic, a recent winner over the same dis-a a tance when the track was a bit muddy, f Shapfell was the one to step into com-i- mand from a good start and Pelham, his i stablemate, went after him, while Rhodesia i- was soon under double wraps in third place, e As the back stretch was reached Rhodesia l- was fairly pulling Meade out of the saddle i as he was restrained back of the pace and e before the half-mile ground was reached he looked all over a winner, r, Flag View, after breaking in the van, was e utterly unable to keep up with the pace and n he steadily dropped out of the race until n he was twenty lengths behind and was even-d tually eased up. His was a disgraceful per-n in formance. g It was not until nearing the stretch turn e that Meade permitted Rhodesja to step e along and he quickly went into the lead, l- From there to the finish it was no contest d and the son of Apprehension was over the u line winner by two and a half lengths. ie Brandon Rose, which had been well back of ;r the pace, closed with a rush in the final l- furlong to readily take second place and Rock Coventry was another two and a half re lengths back to beat Garlic for third. Garlic in n apparently did not relish the footing as he y likes a softer track. ;r As Flag View was unsaddled a groom put id a hand over one nostril in an evident de-ir sire to find out if he had been sponged, a, Their was no outward evidence of such ;r treatment except the utterly bad race run by the plater. i J , i
