I., N. Y., June 27. Deering Howes Dutch Cut added a little polish to the lusterless record of the odds-on favorites when she carried Job Dean Jessop on a smooth jaunt around, the Jamaica oval in the featured The Beasel Purse today, reaching the end of the six furlongs three widening lengths before Allen T. Simmons Beedee, while Sanford Stud Farms New Idea was four lengths farther back in third place. Darby Dan Farms Darby dAbbie was almost two lengths out of the money and a neck before George D. Wideners Half After, who completed the small field contesting the ,000 prize. Dutch Cut paid .30 and ran the six furlongs in 1:11, precisely the same time required by the somewhat shopworn Boy Angler, who ran with a ,000 claiming tag in the second race, demonstrating once more the comparative irrelevance of final times. Steady Decline in Crowd, Wagering T throng of 18,727 turned out to enjoy the races in comfort, the hot sun being cooled by variable breezes that came from a different direction with each race, and having plenty of space to sit or move around. Crowds and wagering are descending on a steadily sliding scale in New York since the 5 per cent city tax was instituted, but that has made for considerably increased enjoyment by those who do attend. How long this condition will endure as the good horses seek more lucrative pastures is another question. Eddie Arcaro sent Beedee to the front at the start of The Beasel, closely followed by Dutch Cut, while Darby dAbbie and New Idea raced heads apart behind the leaders in the run to the far turn, and Half After was unable to keep up. Rounding the far turn, New Idea made a promising bid and moved into third place behind Dutch Cut who was coasting a neck Continued on Page Thirty Dutch Cut Proves Easily Best In The Beasel at Jamaica Continued from Page One back of Beedee. As they., curved into the stretch, Jessop gave Dutch Cut her head i and the daughter of Brevity Volendam l promptly drew clear. Beedee fought on l gamely as New Idea flattened out, but not ; so badly as Darby dAbbie. Half After was never really in the race. Mrs. A. J. McMasters Ben Lewis, who had been stopping in previous starts, literally ran away and hid from his 13 I rivals in the fourth race, a dash at five ! and a half furlongs, for juvenile colts and I geldings. A. Greco steered him to the wire five lengths before A. C. Ernsts Albimel, . who led William Helis Mountain Lion another couple of lengths. Ben Lewis paid I 4.80 and was timed in 1:05. Incidentally, the second horse in this race was all but left at the post.
