JUGGLER IS DISQUALIFIED FINISHED FIRST IN THE HARLEM STAKES BUT INTERFERES WITH GRAPPLE Keene at Last Uncovers What Seems a Good Two TwoYearOld YearOld Berkeley Easily Scores from jetJ Rifleman Colins Trial New York May IS Juggler first in Hie Harlem Soiling Stakes tin program feature of todays racing at Bclmont Turk was disqualified for fouling Grapple in Hie final quarter the raw going to the latter Juggler began slowly as his custom and wns not n factor in the running until well in the stretch Here lie came fast on the outside after Spooner and Arasee the pacemakers had quit and Ilyc had inomeiitarily taken tlie lead Shaw started to bring Grapple up between Hye and Juggler when Juggler swerved humping Grapple and throwing him against the fence Hyc also was interfered with and Juggler went on to win liy three lengths Shaw was quick to claim a foul which was allowed after McDaniel who rode Juggler Garner who rode Hye Mild the patrol judge had been interviewed Shaw was thrown against the fence with such force as to bruise his ankle ami leg the ankle being pretty badly swollen when the days racing was over The disqualification was popular as Grapple was well backed while Juggler receded in the quotations although there is little question he is the better horse horseIn In speaking of It afterward Shaw said that Grap ¬ ple would surely have given Juggler a nice but in liis opinion Juggler was best The race proved that Spooner is a sprinter pure and simple In some of liis former races it appeared that one mile was his limit but after todays showing this will have to be cut to seven furlongs or less lie was favorite and with Arasec which was well backed stopped short at seven furlongs furlongsThe The tabulated history of the Harlem Stakes is as follows f Year Winner

longer one was cut to pieces by scratches The handicap at one mile brought out a fighting finish between Dorante and Iig Chief in which Murgrave who r de Uig Chief did not show to particularly good advantage With a stronger finish it seemed that he would certainly have woir but Musgraves effort was lamentably weak Uo rinte was a hot favorite on the report of a trial said to be the fastest mile in a gallop ever worked at Belmont Park He was favorably spoken of as a Withers candidate but will have to improve con ¬ siderably over todays showing to have a chance with the horses he must meet in that event Ik was outrun by Shadow Glance and Maznma to tlie turn and only the excellent judgment of Slireve in hugging the rail here while the others went wide Cave him the opimrtunity oC lighting it out with Uig Chief The mile was covered In 140 and this will hardly win in high class company with stake weights up Jubilee was unable to concede weight to Dorante and Uig Chief although he ran a swell race from a slow beginning Uerkeley beginningUerkeley disproved the theory that lie is a muddy track horse only by taking up lll pounds and win ¬ ning the mile and a sixteenth handicap IIo was In front all the way but might have had a hard time to win had not Killeman swerved all over the track in the homestretch Dandelion although un ¬ placed showed much improvement and Is certainly coming to hand handA A goodlooking band of colts was shown in the flrst twoyearold race Casque from the Keene barn and a halfbrother to Bohemian was not so strongly fancied as goodlooking youngsters from this barn usually are but lie had little trouble in disposing of the favorite Joe Madden and the widely touted Statesman Each of these three as well UK Torbellino Balbek and others which followed the winner home are practically sure to be heard from in no small way before the season is half over overThe The proceedings were enlivened somewhat by the victories of two long shots but from stables hailing from Kentucky Gliding Belle winning for W V Sell ill t and Kara Avis for J W McClelland There WHS jio evidence of an extensive following for either eitherInterest Interest in the Withers
