NEW YORK N Y June 9 In a desper ¬ ately fought finish Marshall Fields Nomad an added starter was winner of the stake feature of todays racing at Belmont Park This was the two miles and a half of the Meadowbrook Steeplechase Handicap and at the end the son of Omar Khayyam was doing his best to beat Thomas Paine from the B B Stable and the Seawicky Stables Thorndale another added starter was just a nose further back The race was worth 3375 to the winner winnerConditions Conditions could not have been better for the sport and the Meadowbrook attracted many of the hunting set It was a great race and a fast run one but after the finish there was a long delay before the order of the finish was officially confirmed by the stewards who considered a claim of foul that had been lodged by Burgess who rode Thorn dale He charged that Cheyne on Nomad had interferred with his mount on two occa ¬ sions in the running The claim was not al ¬ lowed by the stewards stewardsBarleycorn Barleycorn the J E Widener starter was the one to cut out most of the pace and he was exceedingly rank in the early racing Byers being utterly unable to take him back He was right in the contention almost to the last fence where he stumbled badly and lost his rider riderWhile While Barleycorn was cutting out the pace Cheyne was never far away with Nomad and the fouryearold was jumping cleanly and nicely in hand Thorndale and Thomas Paine were racing along back of the leaders and Thorndale was repeatedly bothered by the Danger Rock gelding Then at the lower end of the field Thorndale stumbled badly landing and sending Burgess to his ears He was all but off but he recovered his seat though it is probable that the accident cost him the race raceThen Then it was that Nomad moved into the command and once out there he held to his advantage Barleycorn had begun to tire but Greenhorn after being far back in the early running was moving up on the inside strongly while at the same time Thorndale was charging along on the outside and keep ¬ ing step with the Greentree Stable fencer fencerNomad Nomad was just showing the way when the last fence was reached There Thorn dale met with considerable interference and after making the fence he was badly crossed by Thomas Paine All of this enabled Nomad to be the winner by a couple of lengths while Thomas Paine nosed out Thorndale for the place as

RACE Continued from first pagcj siderable ground on turns and made several runs with his horse when undoubtedly a smoother ride would have seen him the winner winnerWilliam William Zieglers Espino verified his re ¬ turn to good from when he was winner of the mile and an eighth of the Salvator Handicap In this he took up 126 pounds and was giving away great lumps of weight to every other starter At the end he was three lengths before Joseph E Wideners three yearold Laddie with the Rosedale Stables Dangerous saving third from Captain Dick another threeyearold The only other starter was Feu Folet a stablemate to Laddie which cut no figure in the running runningLaddie Laddie was the one to cut out all the pace and Johnny Callahan rated him along at a good pace from the rise of the barrier Cap ¬ tain Dick went after him and Espino and Dangerous followed not far away while Feu Follet soon dropped out of contention contentionThere There was little change in the racing posi ¬ tions into the stretch Fator had saved ground on the inside with Espino and when he was ready he moved after Laddie At the same time old Dangerous made his move Laddie hung on well until inside the last eighth but there he gave way and the four yearold raced over him readily though he was four lengths before Dangerous at the end endDicing Dicing which was recently purchased by Lee Rosenberg accounted for the fifth race of the afternoon in a clever fashion over Rosinante from the Greentree Stable while Jefferson Livingstons Complication was third The winner was ridden by Johnny Callahan and led from the start She shook off determined early opposition from Com ¬ plication and at the end had speed in reserve over Rosinante The latter improved his position steadily on the inside but swerved under pressure Complication stopped badly at the end but was an easy third over the other otherP P H Faulconers Gladys Clark was winner of the five and a half furlongs dash for plater juveniles which opened the sport In this race only boys that had not ridden five winners were eligible to perform and Gladys Clark was ridden by M Mergler Inci ¬ dentally this same youngster had to use some small amount of skill when one of his stirrup leathers broke during the running He kept his seat and at the end the filly was two lengths clear of the others othersBroom Broom Market from the Mendham Stable was one to race to second place and T W OBriens Flood Gate by a delayed rush beat Mabel Dale and Wavy a stablemate of the winner for the short end of the purse purseThere There was considerable swerving and bumping in the race and Bud Fishers Chin ¬ chilla which appeared wearing four ban ¬ dages was largely responsible responsibleBud Bud Fishers old Cartoonist was in a run ¬ ning mood in the Ornament Handicap and he led home E F Cooneys Dolan by a length with Joseph E Davis Storm King just a head away to beat H T Archibalds Candy Pig for third
