QUALIFIES FOR BELMONT Hea Runs Slashing Race in Win ¬ ning the Greenport Hollis Selling Stake Easy for Lord LordBrighton Brighton Another for forLough Lough Foyle NEW YORK N Y June 7 Hea qualified for the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park today when he was the winner of the miio of the Greenport Handicap with the Quincy Stables Ray Jay the Modo Stables Modo Bud Fishers Violinist and Frederick John ¬ sons Excelsis finishing behind him It was the first start for the son of Sea King and Ballyshe since he ran Richard T Wilsons Pillory to a head in the Preakness and his race was a decidedly impressive performance And the victory was a popular one Thu crowd likes a good colt and when he re ¬ turned to the scales after being pulled up by Frank Keogh one was led to believe that the Salubria Stable hope for Saturdays big race had won a much more important race than the Greenport the applause was so loud and prolonged W P Burch the veteran who has superintended the preparation of Hea down at the old Bcnning course was on hand to see the colt perform and ho was eminently satisfied with his showing showingThe The race was enough to indicate that Hea is a worthy colt to run against the 55000 Snob II and his condition lends a new interest to the feature of the racing Satur ¬ day dayNo No time was lost at the barrier and while Keogh had Hea away well enough the in ¬ ability of the colt to find his racing legs made the others with the exception of Excelsis outrun him in the early stages Excelsis had no speed and quickly droppell far out of contention contentionRay Ray Jay and Violinist were the ones to set the pace and Modo was showing the way wayIn In the meantime Keogh kept the Wash ¬ ington visitor well on the outside and was permitting him to settle nicely in his stride before asking him to exert himself himselfFAST FAST TIME FOR THE TRACK TRACKRay Ray Jay went the first quarter in 23 and the half was reached in 475s excellent time considering the track condition ihey went to the threequarters in 113 and the mile was finished in 138 138It It was not until nearing the stretch turn that Hea really loomed up dangerously in the running He had been holding his place on the outside and heading for the turn when Modo moved in an effort to go to Ray Jay Violinist having tired and dropped back by the time Keogh moved with him Making the turn Modo carried Hea out badly and Keogh had to draw his whip once on the son of Sea King to come clear of the Odom three yearold Hea responded chcsrfully to the call and once clear of Modo it didnt take him long to wear Ray Jay down and be on his way wayAt At the end Hea was racing strongly and the Greenport should be an excellent preparation for the big 50000 race Saturday He looks a much better colt than he did after the running of the Preakness and has every right to at least make it interesting for Mr Cosdens handsome Frenchbred colt coltThe The stake offering of the day was the Hol ¬ lis a selling race over the threequarters distance It was worth 3250 to the winner and a field of a dozen carded cligiblcs was reduced to six before post time Lord Brigh ¬ ton from the Rancocas Stable proved an easy winner with the Glen Riddle Farms Dream of the Valley second and Harry Watersons Brainstorm third thirdDIIEA3I DIIEA3I OF THE VALLEYS SPEED SPEEDSande Sande went right out with Lord Brighton from the start but Dream of the Valley with a great burst of speed dashed up on the inside rail and under a stiff pull went to the son of Ballot He stole through on the in ¬ side and with Ted Rice trying his best to take him back he went into a lead over the chestnut Doughnut was showing the way to the others and galloping along resolutely in third place placeOn On the stretch turn Sande made his move on the outside of Dream of the Valley and he was soon on even terms with the Glen Riddle sprinter In another few strides ho had gone into command and from there to the finisli Lord Brighton was not seriously threatened to be home winner by a couple of lengths lengthsThrough Through the last eighth Brainstorm closed with excellent gamencss and he was only beaten a length for second place by the tiring Dream of the Valley and the others were more or less strung out Tangerine beating Doughnut for fourth place while James But ¬ lers Sling brought up the rear Continued ou twelfth page QUALIFISS FOE
