was winner of the Rainbow Handi ¬ cap at Jamaica today from H P Whitneys Calamity Jane with Bud Fishers Muskal longe just saving third from the Rancccas Stables Thunderclap The only other star ¬ ters were Gifford A Ccchrans Smoke Screen and Krewer a stablcmate to Thunderclap ThunderclapThere There was a chill in the air that made overcoats the proper costume for the race crowd but straw hats were in a vast majori ¬ ty even if they topped the spring coat A sharp wind blew in from the bay and as the day wore on it was disagreeably cold But as usual the crowd was a big one and the racing was up to the New York standard standardThe The Rainbow was a threequarters dash and five of those carded stayed away the scratches being Audacious Sennings Park Galantman Knobbie and Rocket RocketStarter Starter Cassidy lost little time at the bar ¬ rier and the horses were sent away well bunched Smoke Screen from his inside posi ¬ tion was first to show in front but Lang was right after him with Muskallonge while Calamity Jane further out on the track was outdistancing the others On Watch aa usual was away slowly and Marinelli kept out of harms way when he raced him up on the outside outsideLang Lang made such good use of the speed of Muskallonge that he soon had Smoke Screen headed and as he went by Calamity Jane moved with him and Smoke Screen was in decidedly close quarters on the inside Thun ¬ derclap and Krewer the Rancocas pair were outrun from the start startSwinging Swinging out of the backstretch it was ap ¬ parent that On Watch would be the horse to beat There the son of Colin was moving up in gallant fashion on the outside and while Muskallonge was still holding Calamity Jano safe safeSMOKE SMOKE SCREEN BLOCKED BLOCKEDShortly Shortly after making the turn for home On Watch went into command and as he did Marinelli took him over slightly Muskal ¬ longe in turn went to the inside and when he did so Smoke Screen which was coming again was rather badly blocked Through the last eighth Marinelli rode On Watch out vigorously to make the victory certain and was winner by a length Muskallonge tired right at the end and lost second place to Calamity Jane when the Whitney filly fin ¬ ished with excellent speed and Thunderclap was only beaten a head by the Fisher three yearold Smoke Screen would have un ¬ doubtedly been closer but for being blocked in the stretch stretchThere There was an accident in the running of the mile and seventy yards of the fifth race when Joseph E Wideners Philosopher with E Kummer riding fell in the first quarter and shortly after making the turn out of the front stretch Fortunately both horse and rider escaped injury injuryRose Rose Hill from the Oak Ridge Stable was winner and she made it a double for Lang when he brought her home first As a matter of fact he appeared in a large measure to blame for the accident Master Hand the W R Coe starter had gone away in the lead and Lang rushed Rose Hill up outside of him Philosopher was racing on the inside at the time As Rose Hill went to the front she seemed to cross Master Hand rather sharply and ho stumbled The Widener threeyearold ran up against him and fell Once in tho lead Rose Hill made every post a winning one and Master Hand was second practically all the way wayKO KO CAUSE FOR DISQUALIFICATION DISQUALIFICATIONAfter After the running the stewards questioned Kummer and Fairbrother but could find no reason for disqualification of Rose Hill HillRay Ray Scherers old Jock Scot well ridden by Thomas made all the pace for the mile and seventy yards of the third race and was home an easy winner from the Shea Stables Drummond which in turn was just up to take second place from G C Dennys Armis ¬ tice in the last stride Thomas rushed Jock t Scot away from the post and when the back stretch was reached lie waa well clear of tho others and rating along on tho insido at a good pace Sande after reaching second place with Armistice waited with him there rather than match speed with the leader i This was tho order until threeeighths from home where Sande called on Armistice and when he did not cut down tho lead of tho Scherer plater he drew hia whip This also Continued on twelfth page LOFT GOLOES IN TRIUMPH Continued from first page failed and Jock Scot under a snug rido was not threatened at any time timeDmmmond Dmmmond hadto work his way up on the outside but in tho stretch Morris found room for him next tho rail and under a vig place The others wero well strung out Sun ¬ ny Hill finishing fourth after having raced in third place until the stretch was reached Little Chick Lang won his first race of tho year over a New York track when he piloted H Altermans Ege to victory in a fiveeighths dash for maiden selling plater juveniles There is no denying that horses will run fast for the little Canadian and he has a happy Icnack of haying his mounts at top speed In half a dozen strides stridesEge Ege was rushed away from tho barrier and she dominated the running all the way Ven ne the Jefferson Livingston starter was second throughout and at the head of the stretch it seemed inevitable that ho would overtake the filly There Ege went a little wldo and Vennie went out with her Still at the eighth post it looked as though Vennie would come on but Lang kept Ege going and drawing his whip once she drew out at the end to win by a couple of lengths Vennie beat Max Hirschs Jolly Sailor a greater dis ¬ tance for second place placeJohn John E Maddens Emotion made a show of the fillies that opposed her in a threequar ¬ ters dash for threeyearolds that was the second race of the day Sande lost no time in taking her out into a good lead and she just galloped along there all the way well clear of her field and at the end was easing up almost three lengths to the good Robert L Gerrys Bees Wax was an easy second and the Oak Ridge Stables Sherando a dis ¬ tant third thirdH H P Whitneys Penitent caused a con ¬ siderable delay at the post by reason of her unruly actions and she was finally banished to the outside position before a start was effected The field was in good alignment when sent away but Miriam Cooper would not start with tno others had a scant chance chanceEmotion Emotion at once took the lead and back of her came Many Smiles Bees Wax and Che wink Then approaching the turn out of the backstretch Chewink was badly pinched off by the other two and lost any further chance she might have had for any further part of the purse purseMANY MANY SMILES DISAPPOINTMENT DISAPPOINTMENTMany Many Smiles proved that she is not as much as her previous race would suggest when she quit badly to surrender in the stretch Chewink was coming again at the end after her misfortune while Penitent after her fighting and plunging at the barrier Lran a dull race and raced wide all the way wayLucky Lucky Hour tho Lexington Stable three yearold which was severely kicked in the head while galloping some days ago has about entirely recovered from his injury Andy Schuttinger said that he was frisking about and eager to be at the races The other horses in the stable that have been on the sick list are all rounding to well but care will be taken not to put them to fast galloping too soon soonHea Hea the colt that gave Pillory such a good race in the Preakness at Pimlico Saturday was kicked and slightly injured oh the stifle during tho running of the race The injury is a slight one and it is not likely that it will cut any material figure In his future racing racingLaverno Laverno Fator
