SMALL FIELDS AT AQUEDUCT Thunderclap and Over There Only Starters in Roslyn Handicap. t-r 1 Former Leads All the Way Old Rosebud Once Again Ensor Rides Three Winners. r ; "i NEW YORK, N. Y., September 23. Tiie track was muddy at Aqueduct today, which caused quite a few withdrawals. The Kosslyn Handicap of ,500 added at a mile and a sixteenth, only had two starters. Thunderclap and Over There. The two raced like a team until the turn for home, where Thunderclap drew away and maintained his advantage . to the end. The winners share of the stake was S2.750. Roth horses were well supported. Old Rosebud was a popular winner of the third race. The gelding was in witli light weight compared to what he formerly carried and, finding the going to his liking, went into the lead witli a. rush and won by two lengths in decisive fashion. Jockey L. Ensor rode three of the afternoons winners, Riff Rang in the onener, Pictor and Carnarvon in the fiftli and sixth respectively. All three won easily, Carnarvon in particular. There is a rumor here that Henry McDaniel will train the horses belonging to R. L. Jerry next year. Twiford, the winner of tiie steeplechase, is said to be one of the best, if not the best, three-vear-old jumper in training. His performance today indicated lie may come up to expectations. Hampden was badly cut down during the running of the first race. Riff Rang, winner of the first race, Avas claimed by his owner for ,500. Corn Tassel was sold by R. T. AAilson to S. C. Hildreth for a reported price of 5,000. The funeral of the late Jule Garson was held at Jamaieajd,a-tolhiyuuiy . HillVt.cmefery. Scores of horsemen attended the last rites. The pallbearers were George Odom, William Shields, John E. Madden, AA. H . Knrrick. Dave Leary. Frank Patterson, Preston Rurch and Fred Rurlew. It is probable the horses Mr. Garsoii had in training will be sold or taken over by some of the members of his family.
