Great $75,000 Futurity Stake to
Be Run for To-Morrow.
Some of tho Uood Ones That Will
Try to band the Prize.
To-morrow afternoon the Sheorshcad Bay
track will bo the tceuo of a struggle for the
richest stako of tho season, tho great Futurity
btake, worth I7S.000.
The two-year-olds of this year are notot the
same high class us those who went to the
post to Bgtit for the magninccnt purso last
j ear. Thcro are no Ills Illguesses to pick up
the crushing Impost ot 130 pounds and pilot
the ncld under tho wire. , Noltbcr tire there
uny daluty Vorkvllle llcllcs, Merry Mouarcbs,
Dagonets or Huron, but nevertheless If tho
weather Is good a huge crowd will bo there to
cheer the victor ou Just tho same.
Tho track will be very heavy, unless tho
sun comes out strong and warm, aud even
then will bo slow. '1 bo SbcopsbeAd l!ay
track Is naturally slow, and unless In very
tine condition tho tlmo will be slow.
Among those conspicuous for their absence
will be the crack ot tho Khret btrlng, Don
Alonzo. This slashing son ot Long Taw was
never entered, hence the stable will pin their
faith In either Lldgerwcod or Sir Francis.
Gideon & Daly's good colt, Dr. Rico, Is also
among the missing, but as his present form 1
far from good his chauches would be Bmall.
This stablo .will In all probability be repre
sented by Tar and Tartar.
Perhaps the two that are drawing the most
attention are Mr. Belmont's Lady Violet and
Frank Van Ness's slashing cult Morello. Lady
Violet la a beautiful filly, by 111 Used Lady
ltoseborry, and Is veryspocdy and full ot
pluck. She gets 118 pounds. Jack Joyner
has been at work with her since tho Junior
Champion Htakes wero run and has gotten
her In very lino condli Ion. She was beaten in
tho Junior Champion by Don Alonro, but It Is
said sho was cot quite flu She will give a
good account of herself. Marcus Daly has
given the services ot the great " Snapper "
Uarrlson to pilot her, and If she has the stay
ing qualities the Snapper will get them out of
Tut: Evknino World's selection, Morello,
Is a great, slashing bay colt by Eolus, dam
Cerise, and Is one ot the gamost thorough
breds that ever looked through a bridle. He
is a long strlder, and tborouthly enjoys a
heavy tracx.- His owner and tfalnerrFram
Van Ness, was suspended at Morris Pari: last
Spring for the alleged pulling of India Kub
ber, a,nd has since been racing his charge at
It Is true that Morello has not had much ot
a chanoe at the crackajacks, but the easy
manner In which ho wou his races, giving
away tons ot weight, speaks for Itself. Not
having wou stakes. Morello gets In with 115
pounds, and " Darcdovll " Fllzpatrlck will
nave the mount. Fit: la very enthusiastic
o cr the colt's chances, aud thinks he has the
stakes already won.
'1 here have been various reports that Mor
ello has been coughing very badly of late, but
on good autnorlty It has been learned that
theso stories tire untrue. Ho will go to the
post in the pink or condition and will be
ready to race tor his llio. Tho track will suit
'1 hu West w 111 probably bo represented by
Major 11. U. Tnomos's Ully Itejectlou. Hho Is
a very highly tried animal by Longfellow-tlinignt-and
Is said to hate easily covered
six lurlongs in 1.15 before coming asl.
Clayton will probably rldo her.
ot tue others John Hunter's colt, Lovelaoe,
win carry top weight, 122 pounds and will be
filloted by Hergen. Dagllto will probably go
or that stable also. Mlko Dwycr'n good colt,
Haininle, will get In with 110 pounds and
l'apa Hill Daly will allow Johnny Lainoley to
lido him. Tar and Tartar, no, Kims up, will
Hportthe"AH Illuo" of (lldeon Daly, and
as tho colt Is in line condition ho will give a
good account ot hlmi-eir. bpartan will prob
ably carry the Walcott Campbell colors
but don't look dangerous.
Foxhall Keene wlllprobably send Restraint,
131, Mldgley; the UeAadonna coll, 11H, Ham
ilton, and tho Klslno colt, 115, Hloane, to the
post, and these three will form a very formid
able trio. Albert Cooper has taken special
care to get the Belladonna colt in lit condi
tion, and It Is luely ho will carry tho stable
Sir rrancls and Lldgerwood will take the
pluce of Don Aloue.o for the Khrei stable.
The latter la reported to have done somo very
last trials, but his public form has not been
J. A. A. II. Morris will. In all probability,
send Frieze to bear tho " all scarlet," ana hu
may be put don n as dangerous, as he has lots
ot speed. Token In all the race will bo a good
struggle and well worth the Journey to see.

THE TDRF. I
Ending of Monmouth's m
Meeting Marred by a h
Careless Jockey. ' rffl
MARS IS II GAME COLT.' I
Moyne Gelding's Good Ract H
Other Track Talk. ' H
Monmouth Park's great meeting came to ' ':lti
close yesterday afternoon, and desplto the '.vfl
miserable weather tho 4,000 peoplo who ppH
braved tbe Incessant rainstorm were weU re- ,:a
paid for their trouble. Tho meeting was ona 'H
or the most successrul ever held, but wears, .faaH
Indeed sorry to say that at tbo eleventh hour 'H
a most deliberate-looking action on tho pare wl
ot one of the worst Jockeys In tho coun- " fJ
try caused an accident, whlon went ?
lar to mar a successful wind-up. This "4i
accident occurred In tbo last race, and al- 'inl
though Patrol Judge Fitzgerald reported 'K'9H
the circumstances to tbe judges, no action --'rll
was taken tn the matter at alL Tho raco was t fSjH
at seven furlongs, and gave promise ot being 't.?5PB
a regular farce, as ono man had all the hones ijl
entered, or, at least, to use the expression ot. C-ll
a prominent turfman, It's all in the family."' H
Boyle & Llttlcticld sent ftcbuy lklll ; C. Little- zfB
field sent Klcsrock and C. Llttlefteld, Jr., sent ' '
Julia Pickering, I.lttlefleld and Pennwerrr ,'
the respective Jockeys. The smart people' eH
smiled to themselves and would have nothing ''H
to do wit h tho race, but the stable money to all "Jt
appearances went on Slinrock, whllo Hchuylklli' Mml
was the outsider. At the start Pickering ''-
crossed his mount directly In front of Sim- '3sB
rock and caused Mttleheld to pull up. After ."iH
Slmrock was out ot the way ho set sail for ''JaB
Julio, who was on tho rail. At tbe crossing tll
of the circular track and straight course vil
Nchuylkill collared Julio and bore him close ":H
to the rail. Little Penn becamo frightened ' tfLH
and called to Pickering to pull out. but lick-. "iiM
erlng. Instead ot doing so, pressed him all the ''$H
haroer. About three-eighths ot a mile I ,
from home Julio was seon to falL 7'vH
How Utile I'enn ever escaped death' sVjaHI
is a miracle, but tho horse never moucd, as In J'B
falling he struck his head on the fenco and -jwH
broSu nis neck, dying Instantly. With Julio dtkaH
out ot tbo way Mchu lklll won as he pleased. 'i$M
Judge Fitzgerald reported the case to tho 'll
presiding judges, but no attention was paid 4H
to the matter. Mr Fitzgerald al says that iMM
It was ono of the barest cases ot Intentional cjjl
fouling he ivcr saw. kHI
The Kvxniso World called the cttontlon A.H
or turfmen to this character of riding only a tH
few days ago, when Jimmy Lambley caused 7aH
an accident at Urlghton Heach and predicted -;?iaH
serious accidents as the result. If tho matter &H
w as not looked Into, and decisive stops taken, v.t liLH
Jockc) s are constantly imperilling their lives, iT'SH
without this kind of work, and should by all 'i!JaH
means be protected from a few unscrupulous 't'H
youngsters who will resort to almost 'H
any means to win. Penn has been making 4jB
tUlte a reputation for himself lately, and It Is ilH
a pity that ho should be Intimidated by an 'X'!IiH
unscrupulous boy like llokerlng. All tun- tSM
men cannot but agree that It Pickering in- riisaH
tentlonally put Penn over the fenne that VraWH
severe steps should be taken, and tbe quicker 'BT
tbe better. Let tbo Hoard ot Control come ,''''?''
forward and Investigate tbe case thoroughly. '!(
The racing otherwise was very god. HI
Pessara landed the opening race easily rrom 'iH
correction. Tho Carteret Handicap was won iH
by tbu Moyne gelding, l'lcknlcker captured 'M2H
the third race handily, aud Minnehaha got 4aH
out of tbe maiden class by getting home nrst iVJaH
In the tilth. The Jersey Handicap resulted .OaH
In a magnlflccut nnlsh between Mars ana '''''LH
l'fckMcket, and at the end tbe Judges could i?H
not pick the winner. In this race Mara '-.aB
proved himself to be tbe gamest of the game, vlBl
and seemed beaten a quarter of a mile from ---JjaBH
home, but tbe big-hearted son ot Plevna SiHH
bung on gamely and got up again In the last 7lM
The ne.xt time the Moyne gelding starts In H
a selling race ho will undoubtedly bo bid up. 'Val

Handicap proves him to bo a" clinker." iH
