GOOD ADVICE IS VICTORIOUS Wise Gounsellor Colt Defeats Kerry Patch in Baldwin Handicap. First Saturday of Metropolitan Jockey Club Favored With Good Weather Large Crowd Attends. NEW YORK, N. Y., Oct. 8. Good weathor and a somewhat dead track prevailed for the first Saturday of the Jamaica meeting, which saw the Baldwin Handicap being run as the headliner. Good Advice, brown son of Wise CounsellorWise Mother, ridden by "Bobby" Robertson and carrying the silks of Mrs. J. M. Austins Catawba Farm, accounted for the Baldwin Handicap of ,000, at Jamaica this afternoon, in one of the best finishes of the fall season. Inches back came Quel Jeu, from the Arden Farms Stable, while lapped on the two and going fastest of all was Lee Rosenbergs Futurity winner Kerry Patch. Balios, from the H. C. Phipps stable, was fourth, while "Pete" Bostwick, up on his own Garden Message, wai fifth and last. The Baldwin was a dash of five and a half furlongs, netting the winning owner ,425 and marking the first stake success of the season for the Long Island sportswoman. The finish was in doubt until the official placing was posted. An error of judgment, which was quickly corrected, placed Quel Jeus number on top on the result board over that of Good Advice. There was but little time lost at the barrier in the Baldwin and when the start came Kerry Patch dwelt slightly and as a result was far back when the field was straightened out. Robertson took Good Advice to the front immediately and the colt showed fine speed, racing along smoothly. Long displayed good judgment in his handling of Quel Jeu, a horse that in other races bore out badly. He dropped his mount alongside the pacemaker, but on the inside of Balios. On the turns he continued in that position until straightened out in the stretch. In the meantime Robertson had drawn away with Good Advice and when straightened out for home enjoyed a safe lead. In the meantimp, Garden Message had slipped through on the inside, while UCerry Patch was steered to the outside by Pete Walls. A sixteenth from the finish Quel Jeu was gaining on the winner, while Balios was beginning to falter. A few yards from the finish Quel Jeu was a short neck back of the leader, while Kerry Patch was at Quel Jeus quarters. The final few yards witnessed the duel that had the supporters of all three horses cheering enthusiastically, but Good Advice just lasted. He raced the distance in 1:06. The Belair Studs undersized Pardee showed a return to his best form when he galloped off an easy winner in the Continental Handicap, the richest prize of the afternoon. Three lengths back was Clotho, from the C. V. Whitney stable, while in third place and completing the field was James Butlers Apprentice.
