FRIVOLITY STAKES TO ALICE C. t Carries Quincy Stable Colors to Victory in Selling Feature. : ! Whitney Pair Fail Dismally Chateau Thierry Wins the r Primrose Handicap. NEAV YOUK. N. Y.. July M. The Quincy Stable lias been rather shy of recent stake winners. Alice . it Assagai Cnrisbrooke Castle filly of English lineage, but brctl at Sun Briar Court at RinghamUm. N. Y.. broke the spell at Empire City Thursday by winning the Frivolity Selling Stake, for two-year-olds, at five and a half furlongs and worth ,185, Alice C. only brought ,300 at the S.iim sales last August. She had shown much .speed in the b-si company of her age and sex at races at Belmmt Park and Aqueduct. She had some bai luck in one or two of them. Every starter in li;m h:d trouble, of one kind or another. Iu the Frivolity five answered the call. Timbrel and Acnizelos staying away. The Whitney pair. Sailing Along and Pastoral, were the overwhelming choices and the public was confident that either could win. Sailing Along made only a fair showing. Iastoral did nothing. The dispised outsider Red Tom dashed away in the lead when starter Cassidy gave the word and displayed a high flight of speed. Hut it did not last long. Alice C. was right at the pacemakers heels and when he tired moved into the lead and stayed there to the end. She seemed to tire slightlv Mcar-niTrtffl,Snm-"WIiwi Mooney saw Picnic gaining he drew his whip and drove her home to score by ji length. The Sanford youngster was going like a whirlwind at the end. after iieing in close quarters during "Hie early running. He was fast overtaking the winner in the last eighth. Sailing Along was third, with his stablemate trailing manv lengths behind. BANKSIAS WEIGHT TOO MUCH. Pen Roses withdrawal from the Primrose Handicap, at one mile, for fillies and mares, left public opinion divided over the qualities and fitness of the remaining contenders. Tost time found John San-folds French-bred Chateau Thierry a slight favorite over Clifford A. Cochrans Ranksia, with considerable support for I.uuetta from the Hallenbeck barns. Klected II. and Ensor nearly upset calculations by stealing away into the lead and showing the way to the last eighth before giving way. Then Huuksia had her chance, but her weight told and the fast finishing French miss quickly raced her into defeat and drew away to win by a safe margin. She had been saved while the leaders were tiring themselves out and Coltilettis call was well timed, the daughter of Kcouen dashing away with great speed under her light impost. I.uuetta was second, slipping through on the inside and passing Klected II. in the last stride. My Play, the two-year-old brother to Man o War. worked five-eighths of a mile head and head with Serapis before the third nice. This son of Fair Play is iu the Lexington stable. They covered the five-eighths in 1:01. bearing out slightly at the finish to avoid a harrow that had been dragged upon the track below the finish line. Schuttinger had the mount on My 1lay and Rob-inson piloted Serapis. This is the first time that trainer Kim Patterson had set the Fair Play colt down with watchers iu attendance. Everyone was highly impressed with the move. My Play is a solid bay with the exception of a star. lie has the same frietionless action as Man o War and is even tempered. He is eligible for the Whirl Stakes- and the Fast View, the features of the programs at Empire on Saturday and a week hence. SIGNS UP WITH NEW OWNERS.
