V - J I : AM AMERICAN -BRED FILLY MOW 1M EMGLAND TO COMPETE FOR THE OAKS OF MEXT YEAR. r - JAMES R. KEENES CH. F. 2, SUFFRAGETTE. BY VOTER NOONDAY. In its two-year-old division of this year the James R. Keene stable was especially strong in a strikingly high-class band of fillies. Of these Maskette was probably best, but in racing essentials Suffragette. Melisande and Wedding Bells were but little inferior to the now famous winner of the FutuVity. Maskette is still in this country, but Suffragette and Melisande are now probably in England. At any rate, thev were to have arrived there day before yesterday and probably did. Suffragette is engaged in the Oaks of 1000. but Melisande is not. Maskette is also in the Oaks and the presumption is that she will be sent to England, especially if Governor Hughes should be re-elected next Tuesday. Suffragettes sire. Voter, was in racing long the star sprinter and miler of tlie Keene stable and a horse of truly remarkable speed. Her dam. Noonday, was bred and raced by Mr. Keene and was herself a stake winning two-year-old In 1000. Suffragette made her first appearance in public at Belmont Park. May 2ii. in a purse race for maidens and was the favorite, but ran green and was unplaced. Bobbin proving the winner. Her next start was in the Criterion Stakes at Gravesend. June 5. Here she did better and at the end of the Jive furlongs of the race, run in 1:00ft. was a good second to the fleet filly. Field Mouse. Melissa was third and seven others ran unplaced. At the same track. June S, she was again second, being lies ten bv Trance in a purse race at five-eighths. The race was run in a minute flat and Trance beat her by a half length and gave her fifteen pounds besides. Six other two-year-olds finished behind the pair. After that Suffragette was not beaten and wTon the remaining four races that filled out her career as a two-year-old. Her first victory was In a purse race for maidens at Gravesend. June 17. It was a dash of five; and a half furlongs and, as a 1 to 4 favorite, she won cantering in 1:07ft from The Pippin. Harlem Maid and eight more. June 2-1 she won the long-established Surf Stakes at Sheepshead Bay and, with lift pounds up, ran its live and a hair furlongs easily in 1 :0D. led throughout and finished eased up. Her stablemate. Footpad, was second. High Range third and six more ran unplaced. She was not raced again until September Hi and when she came out that day to race for the Willow Handicap at Gravesend it was in the colors of James Rowe. who had bought her at public auction a short time previously. In this case she won at five and a half furlongs in 1:00ft and. carrying 11! pounds, defeated Trance. 124; Spectatress, 105: Taboo. 103; Mascarada. Ill: Sundance. 112. and Sententious. !.". She went right out in the lead at once, with Trance hard after her and won all the way with such ease as to make it sure that she would have done the same thing if evenly weighted with Trance. Her last race was for the Junior Champion Stakes, at Gravesend, September 10. Here, with 122 pounds in the saddle, she ran the about six furlongs course in such exceedingly fast time as 1:0!. defeating Mediant. 121; Flta Herbert. 120: Etherial. 117: Statesman. 102; Field Daisy, 108; Joe Madden. 115: Madman, 104. and Otogo, 07. It was this high-class race that influenced Mr. Keene to purchase her back and send her across the Atlantic to emulate the example set by Cap and Bells.
