Whitney Fiily Provides Biggest Surprise of Spring Racing. ♦ Her Success in the CoacLimg Club American Oaks Entirely Unexpected Disqualification. NEW YORK. X. V., June 15.— Prudish, th* daughter of Peter Pan and Polly Flinders and accordingly a sister to that good racer Prudery, was winner of the Coaching Club American Oaks for Harry Payne Whitney at Belmont Park Thursday. Her victory over Emotion was a mowt unexpected one in the light of her recent racing, but after her bad races James Rows was at a loss to explain her showing, foi the reason that she had worked bo well for him in private. While Prudish had shown nothing in races to warrant the belief she could beat Emotion, which races for Marshall Field III. and Robert L. Gerry, under Mr. Cerrya silks, she has been winning in a fashion that made her appear well-nigh invincible for tho trying mile and three-eighths route. She ran her race, but it was not good enough to beat the suddenly improved daughter of Peter Pan. Si:; went to the post and. besides Prudish and Emotion, they were Bees Wax. P stable mate of Emotion, W. EC foes Many Smiles. the Oak Bidge Stables Rose Hill and tha Greentree Stables Kings Fancy. 11ACE IS WORTH 1,500. The race was worth 1.-500 to the winner. After a short delay at the post the field was sent away in good alignment and Sands. starting Emotion from the outside, rode her away so that she would have an inside position before the turn was reached. She had speed enough to cross to the inside rail on the turn and when there Sande took hold of her and rated her along, while Bees Wax. as was expected, went out to make the pace. Put Bees Wax could not get far away and Many Smiles was right there with her and going so well that Sande kept Emotion will within striking distance to take up the task when Pecs ax was through. Prudish was racing on the outside and Morris had a nice hold of her head. B-jsa Hill and Kings Fancy at no time look any real serious part in the running. Making the turn out of the backstretcb Emotion drew away from Many Smiles and had her beaten, but Prudish was still going strongly back of her and Morris had made no move. Then rounding into tho stretch Prudish moved tip until she was lapped on Emotion. She was closing with such speed that sha already looked a winner. Sande went to the whip on Emotion in s vain effort to hold the lead, but Prudish was steadily wearing her down and while the daughter of Friar Bock struggled along gamely it was no use and Prudish went on by to win with something to spare by a, length. RACE RUN IX FAST TIMS. Fifteen lengths farther back Kings Fancy was along In time to take third from Many Smiles. The fractional time of the running was better than that hung out in the Bel- moat over the same distance when Pillory beat Snob IL These were 24%, 4S, 1:1".. 1:39%, 1:52%, 2 :05-v, and 2:19%. Walter J. Salmons El Dorado, a chestnut daughter of Ultimas and Helen Barbae, was winner of the opening four and a half fur- longs dash for two-year-old fillies. Freder- ick Johnsons Possible was a close second and third place fell to James B. Smiths Pelphir- zonia. Then there came the disqualification of El Dorado for her having fouled Possible through the final eighth. This pav2 Possible the race, moved the Smith filly into second place and gave third to John E. Maddena Pay Dear. Possible and El Dorado were out in front ad through the race and Bang carried the Salmon filly over badly toward the inside until C. H. Miller finally drove El Dorado to tha front. When he had a lead over Possible ho swerved the filly over on Possible and Bang had to take her up. There was considerable delay after Miller had been questioned before the stewards made their ruling. Pay Dear was closing in good going at the End. Paula Shay of the Allies Stable swerved badly to the outside at the start. Boi Craig, from the Greentree Stable and the top weight in the steeplechase, was good enough to make pace all the way and win by a good margin over Joseph E. Davis Quecreek, though at the end he was a tired horse and the four-year-old was catching Continued ou twelfth page. I | ; l r !_ I . t a j . I i ,. .
