AQUEDUCTS ORDINARY CARD I t No Feature Provided but Overnight 1 Races Furnish Good Sport. i i Lady Hi gloss Earns Close Decision Over / Nbner in Mile Event — Triple for Jockey "Sonny" Workman. ♦ NEW YORK, N. Y., June 21.— With no feature offering down for decision at Aque- , I f duct Friday, the overnight races furnished - ; excellent sport for the largest attendance of r the week. The best offering was at a mile, for the better class platers, and it brought 1 " one of the various fighting finishes when Victor Emanuels Lady Higloss earned a f close decision over Dewey Benthams Abner, i while Mrs. John Hay Whitneys Old Story • h took third from War Stripes. a This marked the first appearance of , J * Kungsholm since he was claimed from J. H. Louchheim by W. N. Adrians. The son of ■ Dozer had raced under a valuation of ,000 : . when he was such an easy winner, but 1 trainer Jacobs valued him at ,000 for this 5 running. * y Even with the moving up, the colt was made favorite of the company. He left the ■ c stalls running, but was not able to open up 1 j a lead on this better company, and Lady j. Higloss hung to him until she finally put j I I | him away. In fact he was so soundly put - | away after his pacemaking that he finished 1 a bad last of the six that raced. c Through the early racing Thruster was ! , the one to follow Kungsholm and Lady Hi- gloss, but he was raced along on the outside j j by Malley and when the stretch was reached | tired badly. It was there that Abner and - Old Story, both well back in the early rac- • £ ing, began to move up resolutely. Abner T 1 was bearing out as he charged on Lady Higloss, but he continued to draw up on the J ± filly right to the end, but she had lasted to | « win by a head. Old Story was a length and 1 | | • a half back of the Bentham colt, and War r i I Stripes just beat Thruster for fourth. I j , The steeplechase of the day was over the 5 j I j short course and it went to Thomas Hitch- i cocks Nesconset, ridden by the amateur f i | Rigan McKinney. To score he caught Mrs. • I j William C. Wrights Silverskin, which was t used up in a suicidal pace by J. N. Theo- - | j . f dore, also an amateur. Third was the por- -1 j tion of M. B. Metcalf, Jr.s The Graf, and i : , 1 he was far back. The only other to com- - ; plete the course was Rocktor, after Cata- - i Ionian had fallen at the sixth fence. I ] Mr. Theodore gave Silverskin scant chance e , in this when he rushed him along from i j i • the drop of the flag at a pace that soon J 1 1 saw him ten lengths before the others. He e ! did not give the old gelding a chance to 3 j « take a long breath in this senseless pace e j I and as a result his mount tired so badly yr 1 that he could hardly raise a gallop in the a ! I last quarter mile. I J I "Sonny" Workman, who has never ridden I better than this season, continued his sen-sational 1 riding at Aqueduct and he rode Samuel D. Riddles Under the Guns to vie- , " I 1 j tory in the opening five furlongs dash after 5 i [ the daughter of Man o War appeared j beaten. Second place went to J. P. Jones 5 ,, j Miss Dignity and Victor Emanuels Free e | I Again beat Small Devil for third. Free Again was the one to set the pace e i , and Small Devil went after her, while e I Workman soon had Under the Guns in third d | place, and racing along on the inside. Free e | | Again held to her lead until well inside e i i the final furlong. There, Miss Dignity came e ; strongly and Workman moved up on the e inside with Under the Guns. The Riddle e ! | filly was through in the final strides to be e winner by a length and a half. I Miss Dignity had a half length advantage e , over the tiring Free Again at the end and d i Small Devil was only another half length h j away. This was a test for maiden juvenile e fillies and an even dozen went to the post, t i j The second five furlong dash for maiden n juvenile fillies brought a fighting finish and d , , j victory to the popular A. G. Vandeibilt silks when Exaltation, a daughter of Swift and d | I Sure — Mad Light, nosed out George Odoms s Royal Vixen and Mrs. John Hay Whitneys Speech was third. Royal Vixen was the one to set the pace i and until making the elbow of the course, e, i i she was clear of the others. In the final 11 sixteenth there was a general closing up p back of the daughter of Sir Gallahad III., U but responding to a vigorous drive by Bejshak she just dropped her nose in front. t. Royal Vixen was two lengths before Speech, a, which in turn only saved third by a head d from Patsey Begone. J. H. Louchheim claimed Kungsholm back k from Adrians for the ,000 for which he le j J was entered. Thus Adrians made ,000 on m | the deal even though the colt was beaten. n. I ! He only cost ,000 and was bought back k I I for ,000. | Jockey Workman completed a triple when ,n ! | he guided Paul Rattis Hermie Roy to a a i driving victory in the final race of the day. : This was a dash over a distance of ground ,d i ! for platers. Hermie Roy led home Major r j General, while in third place was Flaming g j Mamie. The winner was restrained off the ie early pace when outrun the first part, came I to the outside in the stretch and finished d with a rush. Workman previously rode Under n- the Guns and Tintagel, which puts him m far in front of the other riders at this meeting. t- j Workman piloted his second winner of the ie , day when he scored with Marshall Fields Tintagel in the fifth. This was the third ld ._ race of the program over the five furlongs distance and for juveniles. Mrs. John Hay Id Whitneys Gleeman raced to the place, and third went to A. G. Vanderbilts Sobriety, y. with Royal Fox fourth. Gleeman was the one to cut out the early ly | racing, and Rainey sent him along on the rail to save all the ground possible. Then m j j after rounding the elbow Tintagel, which ;h ; was racing second, gradually drew to the ie front after Workman had slapped him once ce with the whip. At the end he was going away, the winner by a length and a half. If. Right at the end Sobriety finished well to to be beaten only a neck by Gleeman. The •♦hers were in rather strung-out order. I
