GEORGIE IS WINNER AGAIN Wins From Tufter in the Main Feature at Jamaica. Bridesman Another that Owes Victory to Sandes Masterly Horsemanship Rigcls Fast Race. 9 NEW YORK, N. Y., October C Georgie added another purse to his Frank Bain list when he won the Brunswick Selling Handicap at Jamaica today. It was an overnight race, at a mile and seventy yards, and Tufter made it interesting for him. The only other starter was Wynnewood, and he was beaten off. Tufter rushed out to set the pace and drew away from Georgie when he stumbled while going around the first turn. Fator had Tufter under restraint to hold Wynnewood level, and before completing the backstretch rush the latter was showing signs of distress. It was after leaving the backstretch that Sande made his move with Georgie, but Tufter was not ready to give up and as Georgie came alongside he answered the challenge gamely. They were closely lapped Vntil well inside the last eighth and Sande had to ride Georgie out sharply to have him win by a length. The day was another excellent one for the sport and with tiro weather so fravorable another record was equaled when the two-j ear-old Rigel, from the Rancocas Stable, raced five and a half furlongs in 1 :05. Bridesman, with the able asstance of Earl Sande, was winner of the fifth race, a dash of a mile and seventy yards. He just got up in time to beat Duncecap and it was the skill of Sande in the saddle that made the victory possible. Canyon was a distant third and the only other starter was Scotland Yet. .Little Martz rushed Canyon to the front at the rise of the barrier and Duncecap, showing more speed than usual, went after him. Scotland Yet forced Bridesman wide on the turn and he was last of the four. Through the backstretch Canyon continued to lead, but he could not shake off Duncecap or Scotland Yet. Then when Sande made a move on the outside with Bridesman Bell shot Duncecap to the front and she raced into a good lead. The battle through the stretch resulted in Duncecap beating Canyon three lengths for second place and Scotland Yet a distant last. GERRY COLORS IX FRONT. Robert L. Gerrys Ruddy was the winner of the opening five and a half furlongs dash, for maiden two-year-olds of the selling plater variety. Keenan raced to second place, while Homestretch was a distant third. It was a two-horse race all the way when Keenan went out with Ruddy. At the head of the stretch he lost some ground by swinging wide and it was there that Ruddy drew out to be an easy winner. Homestretch came along in time to be third. Nine cheap ones made up the field for the mile and a sixteenth dash that was the second offering and the winner was A. S. Wood-cliffes Service Star. At the end he had something to spare in beating Lord Herbert, while Carmencita was third. Consort and Orderly, closely lapped, were showing the way to the others, while Lord Herbert, as usual, was in the rear. Consort was first of the pacemakers to tire of the lead and as he dropped back Carmencita drew out slightly. Sande nursed Orderly along for an eighth, but he was through when his sister outran him and before the stretch was ucompleted he dropped back badly. In the meantime Service Star was racing easily on the outside and gradually making up ground. An eighth from home he had Carmencita beaten and came away readily. But in the meantime Lord Herbert had closed an Continued on sixteenth page. GEORGIE IS WINNER AGAIN! Continued from first page. immense gap and was an easy second. It has been a habit of Sam Hiidreth to hang out a five and a half furlongs record at Jamaica. In 1919 he set the mark with Lucullite and a year later with Dunboyne. Then he came along with the two-year-old Rigel and equaled the mark of 1 :03. By winning with Service Star in the second race J. Merimee reached within one score of losing his apprentice allowance under Jockey Club rules. It was his thirty-ninth win. Canyon was making his first appearance under the silks of Miss Marie L. Mahler in the mile and seventy yards of the fifth race. He was purchased privately from J. A. Co-burn after his previous good race with H. C. Fishers Violinist Miss Marie L. Mahler, with Mr. and Mrs. Charles Chessar, was out to see Carmencita and Canyon perform. Lord Herbert and Carmencita, which finished first and second In the second race, are near brother and sister. Lord Herbert is by Fitz Herbert Manzanita, while the filly is by Fitz Herbert or Spanish Prince II. Manzanita. J. Callahan came over from Laurel to ride both Carmencita and Canyon, but on arriving he found that each had claimed an apprentice allowance that barred him from the mounts. He had his trip for nothing and returned to the Maryland track during the afternoon, Rigel, which won the third race for the Rancocas Stable, is one that is to be offered in the weeding-out sale next Thursday. He is a son of Ballot and Pictons Pride, and on recent form is a decidedly speedy colt The sale is to cut down the size of the racing string, for the stable is of such proportions now that there are more horses than stalls in the establishment
