MUCH INTEREST IN YONKERS HANDICAP Hext Saturdays Race at Empire City Expected to Draw Fine Field and a Big Crowd NEW YORK N Y July 22 The Harry Payne Whitney youngsters are about at the top of the twoyearolds at Yonkers but on account of bad track conditions it is not at all surprising that the crack filly Panoply which had been assigned the postof honor In the Wakefield Handicap to be run tomorrow will be an absentee absenteeJ J W Mays fast filly Head Over Heels will be another among the missing tomorrow for the same reason reasonR R F Carmans Carmandale was originally allotted 122 pounds by linndicapper Vosburgh but he must take up a threepound penalty for his victory in the Whirl This colt Is right at the top of his form atrpresent and is certain to make the contest an interesting one for the best of bis competitor competitorPrincipal Principal interest in the weeks racing centers about the running of the Yonkers Handicap a mile and a sixteenth event which will call threeyear olds and over to the post on Saturday Aside from Lucullite and Lanius the best matured handicap racers of the country are eligible for this event and it is possible a few of the good threeyear olds will give them battle battleJames James Butler will be represented by Spur and Bally and there will be great interest in the performance of the first named veteran This six yearold son of King James and Auntie Mum made his first appearance in the Yonkers in 1910 He was then in his threeyearold form and made the redoubtable Roamer give his best to lead him home homeWhile While he was forced to be content with second place in this running of the Yonkers he came back in 1917 and earned chief honors from high class opponents Again im lSUShe won the sagne raceT FOURTH APPEARANCE FOB SPITE SPITEAnd And so on Saturday Spur will make his fourth appearance in the Yonkers Handicap with an en ¬ viable record in connection with that stake Whether he can make his score three straight in the Yonkers appears rather doubtful as he will be facing the keenest sort of opposition In morning work he has been going along exceedingly well and there Is little doubt that Dick Miller will send him to the post a mighty fit horse horseBally Bally the conqueror of Lucullite will accompany Spur to the post should the track be fast and under these conditions he is expected to again display a topnotch effort effortThere There will be plenty of opposition to the Butler pair as Willis Sharpe Kilmers Sun Briar will again attempt to recover some of his lost laurels He will undoubtedly improve over his race in the Mount Vernon and will be exceedingly hard to beat His stableraate Exterminator has also been train ¬ ing well of late and there is just a chance he will start startThe The veteran pair Old Rosebud and Roamer are training for the Yonkers and their presence in any company always makes the outcome doubtful Both have plenty of speed and if in the mood are liable to beat any mans horse horseKNICKERBOCKER KNICKERBOCKER ON THURSDAY THURSDAYPurchase Purchase and Be Frank are the best of the three yearolds eligible but they appear doubtful start ¬ ers Both are in the Knickerbock Handicap on Thursday and they are the leading eligibles for that event This stake is a race for threeyear olds which will be decided over the mile and a sixteentli route Fiftyfive racers of that age are eligible but Purchase and Be Frank appear to hold the edge over the others othersW W J Starrs Crystal Ford appears the one most likely to offer an argument while in the mud Bal ¬ ustrade Is certain to go well wellFrom From a monetary standpoint the most important stake of the week is the East View a juvenile affair over the short threequarters route which lias a guaranteed value of 5000 It Is unfortunate however that the best performers of this age di ¬ vision are at present quartered at Saratoga Springs and will be absent from the sixth running of this event eventAmong Among these is the western filly star Miss Jemima and judging from recent rumors there is a chance she willl be shipped down from the Spa to fill this engagement Should Miss Jemima make the journey she has more than an even chance to capture the rich race for on her Kentucky form she should hold her principal competitors safe safeDOMINIQUE DOMINIQUE TRAINING WELL WELLJust Just at present it appears her greatest opposition would come from Dominique S C Hlldreths fleet son of Peter Quince Berry Maid This colt has been going along well in recent work and all of these indicate he is being pointed for the East View His only appearance under the Hildreth colors resulted in a most dismal defeat but it is safe to say he will show far better form in Saturdays juvenile feature featureCarmandale Carmandale displayed much improvement in the Whirl Stakes and it may be he will evade the fleet Panoply in Wednesdays Wakefield to try for the richer race in the East View ViewJohn John Sanford has Irish Dream right on the grounds and while this comely eon of The Curragh Trance is still a maiden he appears to possess considerable speed He has only made on appear ¬ ance under colors and that was sufficient to impress close observers Tbe proprietor ot the Hurrlcana Stud will send a number of yearlings by The Curragh to the sales at Saratoga in August and taking a line on Irish Dream they should bring good prices pricesR R L Gerrys Feodor was tried and found want ¬ ing in the Whirl but it may be he will be given another chance la the East View
