Golden Glitter, an unsexed son of High Time and Shining Mark, which races for Charles 3 T. Fishers Dixiana, which was making his first start since the winter, season at Oriental Park, furnished the biggest surprise of the meeting in accounting for the third race that was one of the principal attractions at the Coney Island course of the Cincinnati Jockey Club this afternoon. C. V. Whitney s Legality was second and B. Friends Busy Jay third. Eight of the better grade juveniles started and although Monty M. was the favorite, he was impeded soon after the start and Willie Garner, who was astride Sky Lad, was held responsible and suspended for five days. Golden Glitter, a rank outsider, rewarded at odds better than 52 to 1. There was some delay before the start, but once under way, the veteran Charley Allen lost little time in sending the Dixiana representative to the front. Busy Jay was in second place, while Spring Station was showing the way to Sky Lad, which came over sharply. The leading trio raced in this order to the stretch, where the winner was enjoying a three lengths advantage. After reaching the final quarter, Monty M. moved up fast while George South was bringing Legality up fast. Busy Jay came up on the outside of the winner midway in the stretch but he, responding well to Allens urging, came again and the finish found him a neck before Legality, which was a half length in the van of Busy Jay. The latter headed the tiring Monty M. Tatanne, which was equal second choice with Sky Lad, showed little to merit his support, while the former quit badly after three-eighths. Golden Glitter ran the distance in the good time of 1:06, under 115 pounds, for his third victory in seven starts. A small field of six contested the Mt. Healthy Claiming Purse, the fifth and one of the best contests, which was productive of another close finish when Walter D. was the winner. Second went to After Dark, with Chuck B. third. Ridden by L. Geving, the son of Dress Parade and Orlova, which was slight favorite over Kai-Finn, disposed of the latter in the opening quarter and then raced into a long lead. After reaching the stretch After Dark moved up menacingly but unable to threaten the winner and was under hard pressure to head the fast closing Chuck B., which was a half length before Fire Flash. Kai-Finn dropped back gradually after three-eighths and beat only Big Business, which refused to break with the field. With ideal weather and track conditions Continued on twenty-second vage. GOLDEN GUTTER SURPRISES Continued, from first page. prevailing, the second largest cowd of the meeting was present for the seven-race program. G. Miller rode his second winner and mild surprise was furnished when Auf Wiedersehn, lucky to find room on the inside throughout, beat Angkor, Nuhat and eight others in the second race. After disposing of Dusky Dame, the favorite, in the first three-eighths, Nuhat found a new menace in Angkor, but the latter gave way when Auf Wiedersehn finished determinedly in the , final drive. Atmosphere, an unsexed son of Wildair, carried the pink and black colors of the Mrs. Payne Whitney Greentree Stable to an easy victory for his initial success when he scored over Golden Ray, Booms Pal and eight other maiden juveniles that raced the opener for those from the claiming ranks. Under the direction of G. Miller, the Wildair gelding took comand soon after the start and, withstanding Golden Ray throughout, came to the finish with a length and a half advantage. After Collection and Hiyou tired, Booms Pal was easily best of the others, while King Today, slight choice over the winner, began slowly and failed to improve his position. Thistle Fyrn scored her second consecutive victory when she got up to beat Joretta the fourth race. Lady Jay, showing the way to the final sixteenth, was third. Never far back of the pace of Lady Jay and Gibbys Choice, the winner came fast after reaching the stretch to wear down Joretta, which wrested the lead from Lady Jay after reaching the last sixteenth. - a f i i- e l- i e r, e n n in g e e l- d u ie ;r l- re in n y ;r id a, ;r
