HAWTHORNE RACING RACINGOnce Racing Once upon a time Jack Frost got in with both hands and the briny deep was so affected that the crabs and the lobsters were embalmed in icy coffins and for months supplied the Ice ¬ landers both with sea food of the best and sub ¬ ject jet matter for scientific speculation If some such sort of frigidity could now be invoked at race tracks what a blessing for the secretaries for they would thus be freed of badge horses Then too the encrusted equine could be shipped to Mexico and the Central American Republics where thavtfert theater out he might be used in cross hobbled quarter laces or be made of service in the arid desert hooked to the thimbleskein thimbles prairie schooner schoonerThese schooner These remarks are called forth because of an entry of seventyfour seventy maiden twoyearolds toeholds for the first race on the Hawthorne program yester ester ¬ day Secretary Kuhl Kohl threw out thirtyeight thirty of these and split the remaining thirtysix thirty into two parts thus furnishing the guessing races carded first and sixth To show that badge j horse is an appropriate name witness that there were four scratches in the first lot and three in the other It is becoming as natural for a small fry racing follower to buy a thirty dollar yearling as for a Dutch saloonkeeper to purchase a shot gun And several badges must be issued to such an owner Horsemen of note usually win the maiden races and other owners after keeping a maiden all the season usually give him away having made money with him through free badges badgesSeventeen Seventeen regular bookmakers were on That tLe tale betting is good is evideuced evidenced by the face that when on Tuesday last Governor Sheehan won there was 500 placed on him by one man and the price opening at 8 dodged to 15 and went to the post at 13 to 1 The crowd yester ester ¬ day was slightly larger than the average as the weather was Maylike Manlike and the hazy clouds pre ¬ saged sagged no rain or if any nothing but showers The track was as if water had been poured on by the hogshead and the hoof holes were quickly turned inlo inflow small pools which would delight a tadpole or a mosquito mosquitoHero mosquito Hero Jr backed from 6 down to 3 to 1 won the first race handily His backing came through his exhibition at a previous start of a first quarter run in twentythree twenty and a half seconds and again lie is a son of that well re ¬ membered member mud eater The Hero who onca Inca at Washington Park won two races in one day Second to Hero Jr came Blue Lick who got the place easily from the pair fighting behind Princess Murphy and Nat Roe the former land ¬ ing King third money Vogel cut some figure early in the fight and led the rear division at the finish although well behind Nat Roe RoeWith Growth With Sorrow and Organ Pilot left at the post Red Gidd Giddy and Little Alarm raced into the lead in the next race only to be picked up at will by the favorite Verify who went to tho thou front in the home stretch and won lapped out by Mar zella ella whe when got oft none too well and showed fourth into the straight Afamada Alameda had no trouble in landing theshow thresh money A Cahn Can v wns awns the winner Verify while Sorrow belongs to J C Cahn Can The fact was talked about that as Verify went down in price Sorrow went up Again is brought to notice how easy it would be for a jockey to get a horse left at the post Mr Corrigan said The starter cannot make horses run His business is to get them lined up and turn em loose A mares nest was discovered in the third race Don Quixote had opened at 6 to 5 Crocket Rocket 7 to 5 but a steady stream of coarse notes flowed in on the filly and her pric price at onn Bonn tiir stir a was as low as 9 to 10 while amid cries of hero went to 2 to 1 At this price it is said that Kid Wellers Dwellers money was placed People wonder how this young man makes his money Why Simply by betting at 2 to 1 on a horse that should have been 1 to 2 Cad Irish made a fortune playing prices Why not this re ¬ minder of Dickens masterpiece Don Quixote at once went to the front and paired with Dr Sheppard led the others also paired by three lengths at the half mile ground Here Crocket Rocket made her run but The Devil moved with her and never afterwards in the race did the favorite head Od Nick At the far turn it was seen that Crocket Rocket and The Devil had left in them only a contest for the third money Dr Sheppard was allowed to take the lead into the home stretch I but when ready Martin passed to the front with Don Quixote who won hands down by several lengths The Doctor as easily beat The Devil while the filly that couldnt couldn't lose ran abso abs ¬ lutely lately lutelyIt utterly It was stated in these columns yesterday morning that the entries of W J Canada Smith would hereafter be refused at Hawthorne on account of Barabbas Arabians last race This was an error Barabbas Arabians is ordered to stay in the stable but the owner is in good standing He started Vice Regal in the fourth race and his horse was heavily backed as was also David the favorite at even money Zolo Zoo shot out in front but David quickly passed him and led up the back stretch with Collins second When at the far turn the latter stopped to a walk Vice Regal never worse than fourth ran second to David and the pair seemed to have everything safe away off as they came into the homestretch the favorite having the others beaten by two lengths Now loomed up in third position but four lengths behind Vice Regal Galen Browns Cant Dance The War Dance blood in this Longfellow geld ¬ ing King asserted itself and close in on the rail he came with a steady stride not hurried by his jockey Ellis who so nicely timed his final effort that not until the last seventyfive seventy yards did Cant Dance head Vice Rpgal Regal Close in he collared the fast tiring favorite and was first past the judges much to the disgust of every ¬ one save the bookmakers who were by this win helped along toward even on the day Marcus Cartwright Cartridge by the way needs to knock down a favorite or two as on Wednesday his book lost some 7000 while his outside interests increased his losses to 12000 12000Dave Dave Waldo Weald known as partial to the mud stuck it out and beat Richard J who got off none too well and was whipped hard the last eighth Gold Band broke quickest and outrun by the choices in the betting had no difficulty in landing third although she was fifteen lengths behind Rihcard Richard J JFalomacita Falomacita Valencia on the strength of a second September 7 carried 115 pounds but getting off second to Sidtilla Scintilla having on ten pounds less she went to the front when ready and won easily Sidtilla
