CLOCKS BY SAFE MARGIN 1 — » Carries Brookmeade Stable Silks to 1 Victory in Main Race at Aqueduct. i Rhadamanthus Wins His Second Steeplechase of Current Meeting — Big Play Beats Sunline by Nose. • NEW YORK, N. Y., June 26.— Clocks, the , J brother of Tick On, which races for the J Brookmeade Stable, was winner of the best , £ offering of the Queens County Jockey Club i at Aqueduct today. This was the St. Carlo, • a five-furlong condition affair for juveniles. The son of On Watch and Sox won by a i comfortable margin, but he was ridden out : * to make the score certain. C. V. Whitneys , £ Singers Folly, a son of Royal Minstrel, took second place when he led Mrs. Louise l I 1 Viaus Great American Stakes candidate, , i Conquer, over the line. ] Continued delightful weather and interest- - i i ing sport attracted a big crowd and there » was the enthusiasm for the racing that is j j peculiar to Aqueduct. I In the St. Carlo only six raced and of i i 1 those "Eob" Smith sent out two when he ; I i saddled Prank, as well as Clocks, to bear c 1 1 the Brookmeade silks. Alfred Gwynne Van- - 1 1 dcrbilt was represented by Prevention and I | I Robert Gerrys Chancer wa3 the other r ■ , starter. ! Gilbert had Clocks away in full stride and 1 : he was never headed. Clocks, clear of the 8 , company from the elbow of the course to * I | , the finish, Gilbert took no chances and rode . the colt out smartly to have him score by f. | two and a half lengths. Singers Folly had | to be hard driven to take the place, but 7 . | he answered a vigorous drive by Coucci gamely to dispose of Conquer by a length | i and a half. The others of the small field J j I had cut no figure in the running, but each 1 may improve with more racing. i I LITTLE MIRACLE IN FRONT. Little Miracle, a daughter of Bud Lerner r and Nida, carried the silks of Mr. Nightin- - ! gale to victory in the opening dash, at five r ! ! furlongs. The race was fashioned for juve- ! niles, under claiming conditions, and the ! Wheatley Stables Grog saved second place, With Ina Dear taking third. "I Through the early racing first Grog and 1 j 1 then lna Dear showed the way, and Little Miracle was well back of the pair of them. Rounding the elbolw, Grog bore out rather lr* badly, and there Ina Dear took command, l but Grog was hanging to her closely, and it was well inside the final furlong before e Little Miracle closed with her winning rush. Ina Dear quit rather badly, and Grog g was bearing out badly as Little Miracle e charged along to score by a length and a ■ I half. Grog was a like distance before Ina a I Dear, and Miss Bam took fourth, just an- i- i other half length away. Miss Bam had a a ; . decidedly rough journey and was closing g I rapidly when she found racing room. Mrs. Gwladys Whitneys Rhadamanthus, | ably ridden by the amateur J. N. Theodore, J s I won his second steeplechase of the meeting ~ | when he scored in the Wickson, a gallop j over the two-mile course. It was the fastest J I , run race of the meeting when the son of i Pennant finished in 4:03%, to run down , John Sanfords Action, which was rushed ! I along all the way only to weaken in the I closing stages. Mrs. G. H. Bostwicks Esca- | I pade, ridden by the amateur, L E. Stoddard, j" t Jr., took third because F. Ambrose Clarks . I J ! Louis DOr made a bad landing two fences , from the finish to unseat Bellhouse. The I ] only other starter was Axon, and he was | badly outrun all the way. CLAIM OF FOUL DISALLOWED. There came a claim of foul in the fourth h j | race when C. Rosengarten, after finishing g second to Robert S. Clarks Malbrouk, . ■ lodged a claim against Malley, who rode le | the winner. He charged that Malley had d crossed his mount and interfered with her i I in the stretch. The stewards denied his is claim. Ten raced in this, and Malbrouk was is chiefly to blame for a considerable post 3t [ delay. Beveau was also a bad actor of the ie company, and when the start came they y were the ones to move into the lead. They ry were showing the way when the stretch turn n was reached, where Beveau ran out badly ly and became at once eliminated. I Malbrouk hung on in resolute fashion, a I but Guiding Star had been steadily making .« I [ up ground, and in the final furlong she was j in second place. There she met with some . slight interference, and at the end she was j fighting along to beat Squeeze for second id j j place, while Malbrouk was over the line ie the winner by a length and a half. Cal Rainey drove Big Play, that races for * Milton Seidt, to a nose victory in the final race of the day over Walter M. Jeffords s Sunline, while a distant third was Apprehensive, owned by David Ogilvie. The winner a- was kept in a forward position during Jj the running and when called upon in the e stretch drew clear but at the end it took "J . Raineys best efforts to have him home | ! over Sunline, which was accorded extensive support in the calculations.
