JADAANS THIRD STRAIGHT Son of Carlaris Accounts for Jamaicas Main Event. Plenty of Entertainment Furnished by . Cheaper Horses Fred Almy and Zowie Earn Purses. JAMAICA, N. Y., April 26. Mrs. W. T. Andersons Jadaan, which graduated from the maiden class last winter at Tropical Park, was winner of the best offering of The Metropolitan Jockey Club at Jamaica today. It might also be mentioned that it was the third successive victory for the son of Carlaris and Gayoso, for he has not been beaten since he walked into the winners circle at Tropical Park. This, his third score, was over the six-furlong route, and he had to stand a long drive to catch J. H. Louchheims Sandy Bill, which was appearing under colors for the first time since September 1932. -Third went to George McMitchells Volta Maid, which seems to have her sprinting speed dulled a bit in recent races over a longer route. The most delightful weather thus far for the meeting made the day an enjoyable one and, while it was a card that was devoid of any particular feature, there was plenty of entertainment in the sport that was furnished. The sprint that went to Jadaan was under claiming conditions, but it was for those with some pretentions of. class, and the winner had been moved up considerably when he was entered at a valution of ,500. The same gelding has been raced as cheaply as ,200. Only six went to the post and, as they left the stalls in good alignment, Sandy Bill at once jumped into the lead, and Volta Maid was right with, him, with Jadaan third and on the inside. Volta Maid did hot last long and, as Sandy Bill set a fast pace, Evangelist moved up to second place, while Jadaan moved up on the inside, being lucky to find racing room. Three, furlongs from home Jadaan had Evangelist headed, but he was under a drive, while Malley was still well clear with Sandy Bill, and he had the son of Wise Counsellor under slight restraint. Swinging for home the Louchheim horse was still well clear, but Jadaan was answering the call of Rainey with courage, and he was gradually drawing up on the chestnut. At the furlong post Jadaan was at the heels of the pacemaker, and there Sandy Bill began to tire badly, while Mrs. Andersons gelding continued to gain until he was past the line winner by half a length. Volta Maid, after dropping back badly, was coniing again at the end to finish third, a length and a half back of Sandy Bill, and she was eight lengths before Evangelist which had quit badly as though short. When Alfred Robertson had Flavor away from the post running he virtually won the opening race right there. It was a five furlong dash for maiden juveniles and the son of Chicle left with such a burst of speed that he quickly opened up a lead of three lengths on his company. Hollyrood was the one to race to the place and he had been second virtually all the way. In his final effort to run down Flavor he opened up a lead of half a dozen lengths on Maeriel, the one to make third. Zowie won her second rce of the meeting and her third in a row when she scored over the cheap two-year-olds that raced in the second. She was plenty best of the company and her winning margin was a length over Playful Tour, with Smilin Ed a distant third and well before Spicy Bit, the to be fourth. Fred Almy beat a. band of cheap old cripples in the fourth. It was not particularly surprising that he should win but it was surprising that Yap should race to- second place and Lanadler should be third. They were two of the longest priced horses that went to the post all afternoon. And the real surprise was when Zulu Lad ran such a bad race after looking all over a winner going to the stretch turn. Fred Almy had a length to spare at the finish, while Yap had beaten Lanadler a length and a half for second place. Zulu Lad had quit so badly that it was feared he had broken down but he returned to the scales- with no apparent signs of lameness.
