Air Current Scores Again at Aqueduct Happy Note Chases Tyler Racer Home Longden Rides Heady Race On Son of Carlaris to Get Decision by Length Margin AQUEDUCT, L. I., N. Y., June 17.ā€” Air Current, flying the .white and gold banner of Gothams Frank L. Tyler, picked off his second purse of the Aqueduct meeting as he came storming past the stands in todays featured six-furlong event with a bid the highly fancied Happy Note found impossible to deny. Charles Sterns sprinter fashioned a busy pace as is her custom but after being prompted by Albatross a few furlongs he began fading through the stretch and Air Current was able to beat him by a length in 1:1145. Mrs. C. S. Bromleys In Question earned the third award in this affair but was five long lengths behind the runner-up and only a neck before Rurales, fourth in a field of half a dozen ,000 sprinters. Jockey Johnny Longden, equally proficient in waiting in front or behind, had the mount on the successful Air Current and this latest tally of the Carlaris gelding was due largely to his skillful rating, while Albatross annoyed the front-running Happy Note early. Those who backed the Tyler colorbearer went around to the windows and collected at the rate of .90 for . Good Turnout for Off Day Card The least ambitious program, in all probability, of the current Queens County Jockey Club season did not deter 16,901 avid Metropolitan turf enthusiasts from filing through the turnstiles of the Aqueduct course. This turnout represented another increase over attendance statistics for the similar day in 42 when the Geddes gate staff counted 15,793. The average of winning favorites was * tobogganing at an alarming rate through h the first five offerings, when not a single e one could perform to this misplaced confidence.

Seven two-year-olds, valued, perhaps optimistically in some instances at ,000, furnished the action at five and a half furlongs in the opening dash, with the unexpected result that Warberns dusky Chance Mate won an easy four lengths victory at the direct expense of the highly regarded Stymie and All Talk. Stymie beat All Talk two lengths for the place. The race soon resolved into a futile pursuit of the winner, who ridden by Thompson, paid a stimulating 4.50 and hung out 1:07 as the time. This time, by the way, equalled that of Mrs. Ames in the previous days Astoria, whatever you make of that.
