Rosinante Handicap to Newsweekly Repeats His Recent Success tit Jamaica Guerin Guides New World Scion to Decisive Score Over Reveille in Sprint JAMAICA, L. I., N. Y., May 4.— A. G. Vanderbilts Newsweekly scored a popular triumph in the featured Rosinante Classified Handicap at Jamaica today, surging to the wire two and a half lengths before George D. Wideners Reveille. Mose Rauzi-ins aging Buzfuz was almost a length farther back at the end of the six furlongs and a little more than a length before Robert Greens Roseborough. Eric Guerin rode Newsweekly, who entered the winners circle for the second time in three attempts at this meeting. The gelded son of New World paid .90 as the public choice. He was the first winning favorite of the day. The time was a creditable 1:12% over a track that dried from muddy to slow during the afternoon. A throng of 18,802 turned out in the first pleasant weather in a couple of weeks. While topcoats predominated, they were not necessary. Reveille in Seasons Bow Though he was raced in stakes and graded handicaps, Newsweekly carried claimings ranging from 1,000 to 2,500 in his three races before his last victory here, without a taker. The style of his last two triumphs in allowance company suggest that the haltermen have been nodding. Reveille was. making his first start since last August at Saratoga and the Eight Thirty four-year-old has developed into a strapping individual with considerably more dash than he showed in most of his races last year. Nesweekly broke in front in the Rosinante, followed by Spats and Mr. Ace, but quickly dropped back to third place as Mr. Ace took command and Reveille dashed into second place. Newsweekly was less than a length back of this pair as they neared the far turn, followed by Buzfuz, Spats and Roseborough, who couldnt keep up with the pace. Rounding the far curve, Mr. Ace took a slight lead, which he soon extended to a length over Newsweekly, while Buzfuz was only a head away on the outside and Reveille right with them on the rail. News-weekly came into the stretch only a half length before Buzfuz, but carried that veteran wide, while Reveille cut the corner. Once straightened away, Newsweekly quickly drew away to a daylight lead without any serious urging by Guerin. Buzfuz appeared to sulk a trifle when carried out and hung at the end, while Reveille saved ground and finished willingly to take the place. Roseborough ran past beaten horses at the end to be fifth, followed by Spats and Mr. Ace, who stopped badly after a little more than half a mile.
