KREWER SCORES FOR HIS NEW OWNER S. C. Hildreth Buys Him Before the Races and Colt Repays by Winning the Oakdale Handicap. NEW YORK, N. Y., September 25. Small fields were the rule today at Aqueduct, but they were productive of some good racing in which public choices were successful in several instances. S. C. Hildreth purchased Krewer before the races and that colt, running under his colors, accounted for the Oakdale Handicap,, for . two-year-olds, at three-quarters of a mile and worth 2,525 to the winner. Pilgrim was second and Kinnoul. an added starter, third. Krewer had little difficulty holding the lead throughout and at the end had a safe margin. Panaman won the first race from Thunderstorm and Albert A. The winner was carrying top weight, the race being a handicap at seven-eighths of a mile. Sundial II. won another purse for Larry Water-bury after being quoted at short odds.- King Plaudit, well supported in the fifth race, propped as the barrier went up and was left, Jock Scot winning after leading all the way. The track was still somewhat slow, but climatic conditions were ideal for raciug. . Sam Hildreth will send 3Iad Hatter to Latonia to run in the Latonia Championship stakes, to be run October 11. He may send another horse with him for company. Trainer Robinson reports his mare Valerie West was injured yesterday in her race to the extent that she will be on the shelf for the remainder of the year. It is reported that W. J. Salmon refused a big offer for Hooey Baker before the colts defeat in the Eastern Shore Stakes at Havre de Grace. Secretary Edwards of Jamaica track reports 400 horses iu the stables for the fall season, which begins next Monday, and more on the way. The latest arrivals are the stables of W. .1. Salmon and J. W. 3Iay. with J. G. Wagnon and James Arthur on the way. Emil Herz has just arrived from a trip to Kentucky. He is well satisfied with his crop of Short Grass colts and fillies. "I have eight colts and four fillies," said 3Ir. Herz, "all by Short Grass, and a colt by Spanish Prince. The Short Grass 3Iarion Hood colt is decidedly the pick of the hand. That is not only my opinion, but most of all horsemen who have seen him." S. C. Hildreth is a little undecided whether he will go to Laurel or stay here for the Jamaica meeting. "I have no mud horses," said Hildreth, "and if it should be bad weather in 3Iarylaud, like we had two years ago, it would put me out of business. The weather here is fine and I hate to leave when the tracks suit my horses." Delaware, the three-year-old steeplechaser, which was highly thought of by Mr. 31. L. Schwartz, his owner, as -well as others, hits himself in his work and will be thrown out of training. The victory of Sundial II. was the fifth for the Larry Waterhury stable since its entry to the turf world. Sundial II. ran like a useful plater. J. J. O Toole refused 10.000 for Krewer last week from S. C. Hildreth. The latter bought him for 0.000 today at auction. E. 31. Weld has shipped his stable, of racers from Aqueduct to Laurel, 31d.
