Dantes Half-Sister Fails By Special Correspondent NEWMARKET. England.— Sir Eric Ohl-sons unnamed bay two-year-old filly by Colombo, out of Rosy Legend, and thus a half-sister to ihe Derby winner, Dante,* who made her debut at Stockton, finishing fourth to the Irish-bred Candida, a bay daughter of Stardust and Mury Annie that races for P. Bull, is not so good looking at her illustrious half-brother. Her second outing, also at Stockton, was not any more impressive. In a field of sixteen she finished seventh to the smart Irish-bred colt Maharaj Kumar, a bay son of Stardust and Pancha, who won the five-furlong Tanton Stakes in the style of a top-class colt. This was Maharaj Kumars second success in as many starts, and his owner. H. H. Maharaja Gaekwar of Baroda. was on hand to see him win. It was Edgar Britts second ride and first winner in England. A thirty-year-old Australian, he is the champion jockey of India, and won the important Eclipse Stakes of India four times. Britt rode in America for one season. He rides with a marked crouch and a very short rein.
