VAGARIES OF RACING SEEN Barriskane s Defeat and Bill Heads Victory Illustrates It Another Deutschland In Ynfton Shows Supe ¬ rior 3IndRnnnin Ability Incognance Triumphs Over Dclhlmar SAN DIEGO Cal February 2 The va ¬ garies of racing were aptly illustrated at the Tijuana race track Thursday afternoon when speed which had been the stockin trade of the frequent winner Barriskane proved the undoing of this horse in the after ¬ noons feature Once again it was estab ¬ lished that victory is not always assured for the fleet ones even though they cut out the path for the others until well within the shadow of the winning line It was in the sixth race at one mile and seventy yards that the unexpected winner turned up in Bill Head which had been saddled by J H Blackie McCoole McCooleBill Bill Head figuratively speaking really dropped from the clouds to get up to win a close decision from Peace Flag while Bar ¬ riskane finished third She Devil beginning from an inner rail position and Barriskane were largely responsible for the victory of the McCoole horse They both raced as a tear for more than threequarters of the cuniest on a track that would break the heart of all but the stoutest of thorough ¬ breds bredsVisely Visely keeping his mount off the early race jockey Petzoldt discerned that the front ties were tiring and an eighth out he grad ¬ ually moved Bill Head up and coming on the outside wore Peace Flag and Barriskane cVvn when a few strides from the finish finishWhen When that grand old sire of Barney Schrei bcr Deutschland was sending horses to the races he did not intend them for a dry track Dcutschlands best licks were in the mud To be more specific he liked a heavy track such as has prevailed at Tijuana for the last few days When it is dusty and the course is hard and fast seldom it is that a Deutschland is a contender When it is sloppy well thats another story The poorest Deutschlands on the dry become leaders when the footing changes Jt was this way again yesterday Continued on twelfth page VAGARIES OF RACING SEEN SEENContinued Continued from first page Yukon a son of this Missouribred sire car ¬ ried on just like his daddy and the fifth race at fiveeighths found him the winner by an even length even though he carried the top impost and conceded twentytwo pounds to the lightly weighted Pinaquana which was installed favorite Pinaquana can be dismissed briefly She ran close up in the cxily stages tired of a sudden and then finished in last place placeWhat What a thrill it must have been to the veteran jockey Eddie Dugan to ride this vic ¬ tor Turn back the pages of turf history and you will find that two decades ago when Dugan was in his prime he was riding Deutschland to success on just such a course as Tijuana presented Thursday afternoon Yukon exhibiting the early speed in soft going which h5s father possessed set all the pace and had things all his own way Sec ¬ ond was Plow Steel and third was Billy Joe The victory of Yukon was the third for a descendant of Deutschland in two days Wednesday it was Lone Pine and Squash which upheld the mud running traditions of their male parent parentIncognance Incognance a son of Disguise even though he had engaged in a grueling combat with Harry D on a trying course a few days back seemed to pick up his speed again and was an easy winner of the seventh race at threequarters At the finish he was four lengths ahead of the favorite Delhimar which ran third To the credit of the latter it must be said that he was away none too well and made up a lot of ground groundCareen Careen running right back to her last good race when she won by four lengths made every pest a winning one to be home Tirst in the field of platers that went into the hands of the starter in the fourth race at fiveeighths of a mile She was winging all the way Cicely Kay neglected in the wager Ing showed a good performance to be second while Don Jose probably installed favorite more on account of his prepossessing ap I pearance in parades than on what could be found in the form book had difficulty in tak ¬ ing third place from Velvet VelvetThere There was plenty of speed in the conclud ¬ ing dash at fiveeighths and threatening clouds of the later afternoon presaged that the contest would be run under lowering skies So it was when starter Morrissey sent the field away to a moving start Bill Blackwell which was denied victory the other day in practically the same sort of field was first to show in front With his head once in command he refused to stop and increased his advantage as he went on about his task The finish saw him winning m hollow fashion from Corncutter which in turn was threequarters of a length better thari Black Prince The latter starting for the first time at this meeting was somewhat of an unknown quantity His ability is now established for he turned in a creditable per ¬ formance formanceThe The closest finish of the day came in the third race at a mile and seventy yards In this Plantagenet the elevenyearold son of Ogden managed to hold on long enough to score by inches from Cabin Creek The lat ¬ ter was pounds the best but jockey Rose seemed unable to keep him in on the turns and lost countless lengths as a consequence At that Cabin Creek gamely held to his task and closing with the courage of a lion he just failed to get up by the narrowest of margins marginsC C B Irwin wore a smile of contentment after the last race for he claimed his old sprinter Corncutter from the Sunflower Stable and once again he is back under the Irwin roof The Sunflower Stable however refilled the empty stall by claiming Noon hour from H E Davis The consideration in both cases was 3900 3900A A L Briggs announced this morning that he had purchased Old Faithful from S Iles Eeltine at private sale saleJockey Jockey J Maibcn is the latest arrival at Tijuana He applied for a license this morn ¬ ing and plans to resume his saddle work at an early date dateJockey Jockey J Thomas decided to leave at once for New Jersey to report to James Rovve and left on the midnight train for that point pointThe The mare Flea owned by T Hodgs was badly cut down in her race yesterday and will be on the shelf for some time
