DEAD HEAT AT JAMAICA Tractable and Little Argo Finish on Even Terms in Second Race Judges Unable to Separate Pair at Finish of ofHard Hard Fought Contest Lord Admiral Admiralin in Close Decision NEW YORK N Y May 10 The first dead heat of the New York season occurred in the six furlongs of the second race when the placing judges were unable to separate G W Ogles Tractable and Ida Katz Little Argo as they swept over the line A length in the rear of the pair in third place was William Adrians Mrs Fab and Aegis was well back of that filly fillyFrom From a good start Manual was first to show the way but Tractable was right with him and Mrs Fab dashed up on the outside to join in the battle Then it was Mrs Fab that showed in front but as she moved around Lynch took up Tractable and he was holding her nicely as Manual began to drop out of the contention contentionSwinging Swinging into the stretch Tractable car ¬ ried Mrs Fab out a bit but she was right Continued on thirtyfirst page DEAD HEAT AT JAMAICA Continued from first page in the battle well into the final furlong There Little Argo closed with a rush on the outside and as he drew alongside the other two Mrs Fab was again interfered with slightly but she seemed beaten at the time timeAs As Little Argo charged along on the out ¬ side he was bearing out slightly right at the end and it seemed that Tractable had lasted to be the winner by inches but the placing judges were in the best position and they declared it a dead heat Mrs Fab beaten a length for the place was five lengths be Iore Aegis one that ran a disappointing race raceMarshall Marshall Fields Mock Turtle was an easy winner of the Woodmere Purse at Jamaica today but she had some help in her victory when Morton L Schwartz Good Gamble got the worst of the start and finished second well before C V Whitneys Pundit The only others in the field were Saxopal and Satrapal and they cut little figure in the running runningRather Rather interesting racing was furnished a big offday crowd and the sport was marked by the first dead heat of the season when two platers Tractable and Little Argo came to the end of the six furlongs so closely lapped that the judges could not name the winner winnerIn In the Woodmere Purse which went to Mock Turtle Good Gamble to some extent was herself to blame for her misfortune at the start She had acted so badly that she was banished to the outside of the machine and the word was given before she was in line Mock Turtle on the other hand was off in full stride and it was an advantage of which Winters made every use useBobby Bobby Jones rushed Good Gamble to make up for her misfortune at the start and she was soon in third place but it had cost an effort and Mock Turtle in the mean ¬ time with her advantage was under steady restraint as she was showing the way Good Gamble moved into second place at the three furlongs post going up outside of Saxopal but she was under a drive to take her posi ¬ tion and Winters was riding a confident race on the Field filly Swinging into the stretch Mock Turtle was permitted to step along and quickly drew away to a lead of three lengths She had increased that to four lengths at the finish finishJn Jn the meantime Good Gamble tired rather badly in the drive and while she readily took second place by two lengths she was no match for the winner winnerPundit Pundit had to gain considerable ground to be third He was sluggishin the early stages but saved ground on the stretch turn and finished in good fashion fashionPlayful Playful Tour the son of Tournament II and Farquier Girl that races for Gus Pat ¬ terson found a field he could beat in the opening five furlongs dash for platers He won with something to spare over Robert L Gerrys High Favor and Paul B Codds Aboveboard was a close third William H Gallaghers Light Weight finished fourth and Early Call from the Greentree Stable were the only other starters startersLord Lord Admiral an immense threeyearold son of Beresford and Spikenard that races for Mr Nightingale earned a close deci ¬ sion over Willis Sharpe Kilmers North Wales II in the six furlongs of the Saddle Rock a purse for maidens Lapped on the pair of them was Laughing Sun that raced for Mrs W Plunkett Stewart StewartIt It was the alertness of Lord Admiral in leaving the post that had much to do with his score He was rushed into a lead of three lengths in the early stages and Tem ¬ pestuous went after him while North Wales II was slower to find a full racing stride though he was going strongly in third place placeLord Lord Admiral hustled right along by Horn raced Tempestuous into defeat and then as j Laughing Sun challenged he still held his command Through the stretch North Wales I II closed in gallant fashion but he was a few strides short of victory when Horn kept the big Englishbred colt going to be winner by a head North Wales II had beaten Laughing Sun a neck for second place This fellow which engaged in both the Withers and the Belmont is improving with each race and may yet prove a good colt coltJ J J Morans Barbarian came back with another good race in the fifth when he gal ¬ loped in front for a mile and a sixteenth to win with plenty to spare over Mara Ellys Broken Up and Bird Lore from the B B Stable saved third from Sparkdale SparkdaleMalley Malley went right out with Barbarian from the start and sending the son of Diavolo along under slight restraint killed off all the opposition before the stretch was reached to be home the winner by three lengths First Stare and then Bird Lore attempted to run the winner down and through the final quarter Broken Up made his challenge but it was not good enough to hurry the winner winnerE E Seguins Long Bit ridden by Mitchell was the winner of the final race of the day which was for platers over a distance of ground Flowery was the one to race to second while Playfole was third The win ¬ ner was a pronounced choice In the calcu ¬ lations
