FEATUREilSS RACING CARD • Program at Aqueduct Devoid of Any Particular Attraction. — « Comic Song Easily Accounts for Olambala Handicap — Harridan Fails Badly. NEW YORK, H. Y., June 23— It was not much of a program that was offered at Aqueduct for todays racing, the card being composed entirely of overnight races. However, some of the contests were interesting and the crowd was a surprisingly large one. The track was fast again, and while there were the usual clouds that have been present all through the racing at Aqueduct no rain fell. The best offering was the mile of the Olambala Handicap, for three-year-olds, and it fell to Q. Konigswalds Comic Song rather easily. Sleiveeunard. purchased before the race from the Sanford Stud Farm by li G. boule, raced into second place and third fell to the Quincy Stables Itay Jay, the top weight of tho company. The only other starters were the Chesterbrook Farms Ches-terbrook and M. I,. Schwartz Toil, and they foilowed in tlie order named. From a good start Ponce lost no time taking itay Jay into the lead and Chc-sterbrook raced along with him for a quarter, with Comic Song third and Toil leading S.eive-conard. This order did not last long, for Chesterbrook ,oon dropped to last place, while Toil v.. nt into second, but Hay Jay was still showing the way and Comic Song was galloping along resolutely in third place. After making the turn for home the weight began to te.l on Itay Jay and there was a general closing up back of him. Beth Comic Song and Kleiveconard were forced to go a bit wide and they bumped badly before the eighth post wa3 reached. It was Barely accidental— no serious harm was done. Through the last eighth Comic Song readily OUtflniahed the Soule pun base to win by three lengths, but Sleiveconard beat the tired Itay Jay two lengths for third placo and Chesterbrook was lapped on the Quincy Stable three-year-old, wtli Toil a distant last. CA YO.V EASY WUHEB. Mrs. T. P. Tennellis Canyon was an easy winner of the mile for platers that was the I fifth offering. J. II. Tevis* Tribune was second and P. S. P. Randolphs Mount Hope was just Up to take third from 1-aughtei in the last stride. Right at the start VTn-neconne wheeled and unseated his rider, but was caught and galloped over the course after the otbera Fancier as a result of this wheeling went in the air and might as neil liave been left. .Lang rushed Canyon into the lead at the start and hurrying him along all the way held his company perfectly safe. Laughter was in second place and was clearly lapped by Tribune. This was the order to the stretch turn, where Sande roused Tribune and went away from Laughter. An eighth from the finish l.ang swung the whip once at Canyon and it was all that was necessary to rouse him. ile came away and at the end was three and a half lengths clear. Tribune took second place by six lengths and than there was a close fight for third, as has already been told. SHERANDO ALL THE WAY. After the Allies Stables Wishbone had been withdrawn from the opening three-quarters dash, for three-year-old fillies, it was generally agreed that John 11. Maddans Harridan would have little trouble taking the measure of the Oakridge Stables Sherando and A. K. Ifacombera Story Teller, the only other starters, but general opinion was all askew. Sherando was winner, and was an easy winner. Robinson went right out in the pace with Sherando and she had all the speed. She simply romped along there and through the early running Story Teller had the better of the Madden Oily. At the head of the stretch Bands drove Harridan into second place, but she could come no closer, and though hard ridden all the way she was beaten a full two and a half lengths by Sherando, though she beat the lfacoraber filly a greater distance for second place. ■fed Henderson sent the winner of the steeplechase to the psst when he saddled Tell Me for .1. P.. Bayly and the mare was ridden by W. McXair, a jockey that had never before ridden a winner. He rode a finish to suggest that he will pilot many another to victory when he clearly outgeneraled Cheyne, who had the mount on R. Knox Vox Populi II. Highland Lad, from the stable of Samuel Itoss, was a distant third. Tell Me was good enough to lead from end to end, but ■VTfnir always had a good hold of her head and then when he set hor down for the final dash llil iil.ll the front field he sat tight and gave her al the help she required. Shrapnel II. was the one to be second for a turn of the field and Cheyne had Vox Populi II. under restraint and in third place. The others were well strung out, with Lusmore last of the company. He was jumping badly and after dropping out of it he finally made a bad landing at the eleventh fence and unseated Campbell. William Carth tried J. S. Cosdens Brilliance without blinkers in the third race. Mrs. M. S. Allens Paisley, a Honey wood — Jeanne dAre gelding that learned his racing lessons at the Tijuana track, was winner of the five eighths for selling plater two-year-olds that followed the steeplechase. He was being hurried along at the end to beat the Marrone Stables Ben Wood a length and J. S. Cosdens Brilliance was the one to race third. Paisley bore cut badly in the running and Ben Wood and Brilliance followed him out there. He was good enough to show the way from end to end, but did not have much left. The three placed horses were always in the van and C. A. Apple-gates Roseate II. was fourth most of the way and finished in that position. After the race Paisley, which was entered to be sold for ,000, was run up to ,000 by Joseph Marrone, but was protected and bought In for ,005. Charles Houbre has purchased Gen. Ca-dorna and will race him over the Canadian Circuit. C. F. Clark will ship a string of the J. H. Louehheim horses to Windsor Saturday night to race at that meeting. Jockey Marinelll was suspended for five j days by the stewards for rough riding on Finality in the fourth race Thursday. In j that race Finality interfered seriously with , Saddle and Boots. i S. M. Henderson will take a division of the John K. Madden horses to Windsor Saturday to take part in that meeting. Jockey Morris will not go to Latonia for the ?50,000 special. It is probable that D. Connelly will have the mount on Olympus. Serenader of the Sanford Stud Farms will make his first racing appearance Saturday. | ; As a two-year-old this one was not brought to the post. His race will be a part of his preparation for the Dwyer Stakes.
