ROUGHS WAY TO VICTORY Mills Riding Tactics Earns Purse for Pop Gaffney. Scotch Gold Lowers Track Record for Seven-Eighths at Hialeah in Winter Debut. MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 29. Little Hank Mill3 roughed his way to victory with T. S. Youngs Pop Gaffney in the feature offering of the Miami Jockey Club at Hialeah Park this afternoon. This was in the McKinley Claiming Handicap, and the young rider was guilty of seriously interfering with three of the seven starters. J. Parmelees Jaz Age, which was one of them, was a fast finishing second, and T. Sullivans Full Dress, which was third, was another that suffered by the tactics of Mills. The other victim was Ellice, and she finished fourth. It was good sport that was furnished for a crowd of goodly proportions, and it was unfortunate that the race that had the feature position should be marred by this rough riding. The sixth race, christened the Miami Springs Purse, was really a better race. It served to introduce the Howe. Stables imported three-year-old Scotch Gold in a winter debut. It was a sparkling one when he romped home the winner in 1:23, a new track record for the distance. Furnishing a fast pace all the way, he was at no time seriously threatened, and the race was one to give him an altogether new importance. Before the start of the McKinley Handicap, Full Dress attempted to run away with J. Renickj but he was caught before he had gone far enough to work any harm. WINNER STARTS FAST. Mills got Pop Gaffney away fast and he quickly opened up a lead of a length and a half. Jaz Age was a bit slower to be under way, but he moved up readily to join the leader before the run through the back stretch was completed, and The Gen was racing well back of the pair. It was heading for the stretch turn that Mills carried Jaz Age out badly, and after that bit of fouling, he swung inside again and shut off both Ellice and Full Dress, which were racing on the inside. This brought him safely into the stretch in command, but in the meantime Jaz Age, after being apparently hopelessly beaten at the head of the stretch, came again on the outside to be right at the heels of Pop Gaffney. His finish suggested that without the interference, he surely would have been the winner. Full Dress, which had not suffered as seriously as Ellice, was lapped on Jaz Age, and the Ellis mare was three lengths farther back. The other starters in this were Meridian Queen and The Heathen, but they cut no figure in the race. F. H. Carpenters Double Heart was winner of the opening six furlongs dash for platers when he led home Mrs. V. M. Duncans Glenside and Mrs. W. E. Martins Black Watch, while Mrs. B. E. Chapmans Calgary Kay was a distant fourth. BLACK WATCH TERES. From a good start the three placed horses quickly drew into a long lead. Black Watch was just showing the way to Glenside and Double Heart followed closely after them. This order was maintained almost to the head of the stretch. There Glenside had Black Watch beaten, but as he drew away slightly Montgomery brought Double Heart up on the outside and, after a short duel, he was by and reached home the winner by two lengths. Glenside had saved the place from Black Watch by two and a half lengths and the son of St. James was half a dozen lengths before Calgary Kay. Eighteen maiden juvenile fillies raced a quarter mile in the second and the winner turned up in Oh Baby, a daughter of Camp fire and Ima Baby, from the stable of J. F. Patterson. It was the first start for this miss and she proved herself a worthy sort when she equalled the track record of :22. It was Willis Sharpe Kilmers Mintwina that raced to second place and H. Teller Archibalds Miss Broom was a distant third. Both Mintwina and Miss Broom were sold - " -A ROUGHSWAY TO VICTORY Continued from first page. in the field group. The start in this was an excellent one and Oh Baby showed unusual alertness away from her stall. She was almost at once at top speed and went along with exceedingly smooth action to lead from end to end. Mintwina was a bit fractious before the start and did not leave as smoothly as the winner, but she was gaining rapidly at the end to have the winning margin only a head. My Purchase was an easy winner of the fourth race at six furlongs when she carried the silks of Mrs. M. Colford to a score over E. J. Hollands Jambalaya, with F. A. Carreauds Sun Teatime just saving third from J. P. Whites Norwalk. There was a long delay before the start when Buoyant Days unseated W. Smith and galloped off to the head of the stretch before he was caught. When the start came Sun Teatime was taken up by Finnerty, and as a result, was off so badly as to suffer a serious handicap. My Purchase left running fast, and Robertson at once opened up a safe lead, where he took hold of his mount and simply rated him along to have him over the line winner by four lengths. After being away so badly, Sun Teatime was rushed up until she was alongside of Jambalaya, which had left the post in second position, and for a time the daughter of Sun Briar went along with him. This had cost an effort, and Sun Teatime tired badly when the stretch was reached. Jambalaya drew away to save second place by three lengths, while the Carreaud filly was doing her best at the end to save third from Norwalk by only a head. Buoyant Days was never a contender and finished, a distant last. It was a cheap band of platers that met in the third race at one mile, and it was G. D. Wideners War Saint that was winner and another that formerly raced under his silks, Partisan, was second. Partisan now races for the Mahopac stable. W. C. We-ants Mr. Dick was a distant third, saving that share of the purse from Shasta Lover. At the rise of the barrier D. Smith at once took War Saint out into a good lead and, rating along there, he never had to surrender the command. Shasta Lover was racing along in second place, and in the early racing Borealis was third and Mike Carey was also in the front division. It was not until Shasta Lover tired that Partisan came into the running, but through the stretch he was wearing the winner down, but Smith kept him going to have him the winner by three parts of a length. Partisan was six lengths before Mr. Dick, one that finished strongly as Shasta Lover weakened, to save fourth from Tiger Prince.
