May 5. — .Tame* R. IksVI Maskette. winner of the Futurity of PHIS and best rhrce-year-• ud hily or last season, made tier first appearance of tie year at Aqueduct today in the six and a lialf I ill long* Handicap. SIih took U|i 122 pounds and won handily from Dalmatian and Rocky OBrien in the remarkably fast time of 1:18. which established a new track record tor the distance, ihe race was a remarkably one for lwvfh the four-year-old filly and Dalmatian, which was also making Ma initial effort oi the season. With HO pounds up. he went stride lot stride with the filly all tin- way and when it is considered that the tirst three-quart em were run in 1:11*. and that he then outvalued Rocky OBrien, whi.-b had avoided ihe early pace, the race stamps him as one of the lies! three-year-olds of the season. l;« cky OBrien had the advantage of an earlier -ace .■mil was taking up 107 pounds. On his showing today, it would seem that Dalmatian holds him safe. Maskette is in ihe Metropolitan and her per-lortnanco will probably make MI favorite for that i ace.
