PRINCESS TINA TRIUMPHANT • Audley Farm Stables Filly Captures Rosedale Stakes. ♦ Black Bart Carries MIrasol Stables Colors to Victory in Commonwealth Handicap, Secondary Attraction at Jamaica. ♦ - NEW YORK, X. Y., May 10— It was a good looking band of juvenile fillies that faced the barrier yesterday afternoon in the Rosedale Stakes, which was the feature event on the attractive card offered at Jamaica. Audley Farms Princess Tina, a chestnut daughter of Spanish Prince, was the winner, and George Fields marked his return to the saddle, after a long absence, by piloting the winner. Gifford A. Cochrans Valkyr, a Man o War filly of exceptional beauty, was second, and the Wheatley Stables Swizzle-stick was third. Princess Tina was first to get in motion when the barrier was released, and Fields kept her in front every stride of the five-eighths, with Valkyr closest in pursuit. At the top of the stretch Valkyr got within half a length of the leader, but was unable to keep up with the lively pace at which Fields was sending the Princess along. The Man o War filly lost ground from that point and, at the finish, she was five lengths behind the winner. Swizzlestick was coming fastest of the field at the finish, and her ferformance was an attractive one, for she was practically left at the post, and then got up to finish third. She raced gamely and was going steadily in her final strides. The start was poor, and Spy Glass and Boyd got away late, and were never among the leaders. Spy Glass gave the assistant starters considerable trouble. The crowd was one of the best of the meeting despite the fact that the weather was threatening up to the start of the first race, and then the sun warmed things up just a little. The Commonwealth Claiming Handicap, the secondary attraction of the day, brought out a field of five and the Mirasol Stables Black Bart came up fast on the outside in the stretch to gain command and at the end was going away. Grand Bey was away first from the barrier and stayed in front for the first three-eighths, but gave way thereafter, though holding on better than any of the others. Fator made a strenuous effort to get Grange into the lead in the final stages, but the Miller gelding slowed up in the last strides. Salta ran evenly, but was outclassed by the others. From the rise of the barrier until Jumbo galloped past the finish in the second race it was only a question of just how far the Rancocas filly would be in front at the end of the three-quarters. Fator got the dark daughter of Black Toney away fast and went into a long lead and she was never threatened. She had plenty in reserve and was never under the slightest pressure. Monks Way was easily best of the others, but he was not good enough to carry out the hopes that had been reposed in him. This four-year-old son of Friar Marcus carried Continued on eighteenth page. PRINCESS TINA TRIUMPHANT Continued from first page the silks of F. Darling, the famous English trainer, and it was the first time they have been seen in this country. Hammon had the mount and the South African star rider handled his horse admirably saving considerable ground and was bringing him up fast at the finish. Padraig was another that showed a fair amount of speed slipping through mi the inside at the turn for home and closed a big gap. Morgold, a three-year-old daughter of Morvich, carrying Ben Blocks colors, flashed home a nose ahead of the Li lane Stables Baby Gar in the opening race and James Butlers Glowing was closest in pursuit of the leaders. The Block filly showed plenty of speed from the beginning and stuck consistently to her task, but went somewhat wide at the final turn. It was a pretty race through the stretch and Morgold was game enough to withstand the challenge made by Baby Gar. Glowing ran a good race, improving her position steadily and was going fast at the finish. War Queen ran fast for part of the distance, but quit when put under pressure. The Bancocas Stable ended the afternoon with one of its numerous doubles of the meeting, and it was Ariel that won the second of the pair of events for Mr. Sinclairs establishment The fifth race was for two-year-olds and it was a runaway for Ariel, which was one of the three that got away fairly well to the bad start. Croucher, from the Harry Payne Whitney Stable, finished second and was the best, gaining ground steadily after getting away greenly. His performance was encouraging and it may be expected he will make a better showing in his next outing. Eddie Ahearn was another which ran a promising race and closed a big gap after getting through on the inside at the turn into the stretch. R. A. Smith saddled his second winner of the day when Jefferson Livingstons Izetta. ridden by P. Goodwin, was an easy winner of the final race of the afternoon. Izetta showed the way to Mrs. A. Swenkes Madlyn. while M. A. Silvers Cerulean was third. A bad spill occurred near the first turn when Black Pepper went down. He jumped upon the heels of the leaders and fell heavily. F. Stevens was badly shaken up. Madlyn. which finished in second place, was held responsible for the spill and was disqualified. G. Arnold, who rode Madlyn, was suspended for the remainder of the week, four days. Examination disclosed that Stevens, beyond a shaking up. received no injuries. . « .
