GRANVILLE GRANVILLE BELMONT BELMONT STAKES STAKES WINNER WINNER Dogaway Dogaway Triumphs Triumphs in in Hawthorne Hawthorne Juvenile Juvenile Handicap Handicap DOUBLE FOR MARS SILKS Son of Bull Dog Makes Every Post a Winning One. Fifteen Thousand Chicago Fans Witness Two-Year-Old Stake Race L. Haas Triple. His stablemate, Reaping Reward, almost left at the post, Milky Way Farms Dogaway, son of Bull Dog and Runaway Lass, went on to make every post a winning one in the tenth running of the Hawthorne Juvenile Handicap, stake feature of Saturdays program of the Chicago Business Mens Racing Association at Hawthorne. Never in danger once Alfred Robertson had him clear of his opponents, Dogaway reached the end of the five and one-half furlongs, which he travelled on a fast track in .1:0773, a length and one-half before Bo-mar Stables Yellow Tulip. Whiscenda, recently graduated from the claiming ranks and carrying Earl Harrills colors, finished third, two lengths farther back and with only his nose showing before that of unlucky Reaping Reward. Carrying top weight of 122 pounds like a champion, the victor easily withstood challenges from Viajero, a Valdina Farm representative, and then Whiscenda, before Yellow Tulip loomed up dangerously enough for Robertson to keep the locally-owned winner hard at his task right down to the finish. In sixth place as the field reached the turn and forced to squeeze through between horses on the stretch turn, Yellow Tulip finished boldly to pass Viajero and Whiscenda in swift succession once he had an opportunity to settle into his best stride in the stretch. His finish strongly suggested his proving one of the better, if not the best stayer in the field of nine. He carried 119 pounds. REAPING REWARD UNLUCKY. From his poor start Reaping Reward had to race wide all the way and he, too, came through with a performance indicating a great deal of quality. With better luck he surely would have beaten Whiscenda, and would piobably have proved a strong bidder for top honors. Dogaways victory, completing a double for his stable, was worth ,330, with ,750 divided among the second, third and fourth horses. The successful entry was a big favorite, with Yellow Tulip, which came here from Detroit for the engagement, second choice. With a crowd of 15,000 in attendance and the second largest mutuel turnover of the meeting, it was another big day at the west side course. In the throng were many notables and no few occasional turf patrons out for the first time this season. It was a perfect day for the sport. Milky Way Farms furnished the winner of the Ivanhoe Club Handicap, a sprint fashioned for horses three years or older that was presented as the fifth race and secondary feature, in the four-year-old Diavolo gelding, Whiskolo. Weathering a furious drive and aided by a powerful ride at the hands of jockey Robertson he nosed out Old Gold Stables Transmutable for the winners part of the ,000 purse. Inscona took down show honors with Recovery leading West Main and Silent Shot for fourth. West Mains performance was disappointing to many, though Whiskolo was the public choice. Under 115 pounds, the winner covered the distance in 1:12. HAAS IN LIMELIGHT. Jockey L. Haas rode a triple at Hawthorne Saturday. Robert L., a son of Noah, owned by the Eskay Stable, raced to his first win when he easily accounted for the opening race in which twelve maiden two-year-olds hooked up at five and a half furlongs. Although Continued on thirty-eighth page. DOUBLE FOR MARS SILKS Continued from first page. he had finished second four times, the Oklahoma-owned winner was neglected as the crowd swarmed to the support of Milky Way Farms Minstrel Show, seven to ten choice, which finished second four lengths back and only a neck before the fast-closing Overplay. Wild Count, owned by H. Herendeen and having A. Shclhamer in the saddle, turned back Major Greenock, Wee Emma, Short Skirt and four other three-year-olds in the second race at one mile and one-sixteenth. He took command easily after reaching the final quarter, but tired and was forced to a drive to hold Major Greenock well enough to win by half a length. Wee Emma finished four lengths back. She . was the favorite. George Keetons Irish Wake outsprinted a cheap band over six furlongs in the third race, which resulted in one of the most open betting contests of the meeting. With F. Mauro in the saddle, the six-year-old Stimulus gelding raced to the front as the early pacemaker, Rapid Bells, began to tire swinging into the stretch, and he escaped challenge thereafter, though his rider kept him under pressure until he was safely past the finish. Prince John and Cheraw were second and third, positions they reached about three-sixteenths from the end. Fourth money went to Dainty Jeanne. A pronounced choice in the betting and shouldering 120 pounds, Bert Reid scored the first victory for the favorites when he swept to a decisive win over a small band of second flight sprinters brought together over six furlongs in the fourth race. Tracker, the early pacemaker and a quick victim of the winners winning rUsh in the stretch, held on well enough to take second, with Garden Message third. Failing to race back to his previous good effort, the three-year-old Bushmaster never proved much of a factor. He was the second choice.
