Sinclair's Trainer Puts Rancocas
Top Without Winning One of
Year's Big Purses.
BALTIMORE, Doc. 30. Samuel C. Hildreth hns put the
Ritncocas stable of Harry F. Sinclair on top in the horsemen's
ii.ee for money winninir honors for the second rnnnim spo.
,-m.i. With 29 horses, Hildreth
ol eastern racing that began'
and finished there on the SOth of November, a matter of
f:MO 000. T ie contender was the stable of Harry Payne
mtney with earnings of $224,900.
WlUtney Took the Lead.
TI h success of Wmskaway. win
ter of the Kentucky sperial pur.it of
I!.' 550, and Goshawk, victor In rc-ir-w.tls
of the Oroat Ameriran ami
K.'.itnga Special Ftnke.-i in July and
August, gave tho AVhitney stable the
, lg" at tho beginning of Septem
1, , But, an in 1921, the Ranout .is
i')le finished strong, and nosed its
form.dablo rival out.
Tho consummate skill of Hildreth i
tv.ii demonstrated' by his landing ' uv4,,f e i i
', Rancocas Htabio on top without -Ueleat or Carpentier by
v isning any of the season's spti-; Siki Wn? Yonv'ci TCifr
, .a s of great value. The Lawrence , oml d i tdl 8 151g-
realiaton of $ 2 1,4 00, won by Kai
j.ng, was tile biggest any animal of
ie establishment accounted for. The
5..-n of Tho Finn which, in tlio Law
rence realization, bent Bunting and
Ttorkmlnlster, in 1:42 2-5, could not
be got ready for either the Withers
or Belmont renewal or tho Kentucky
Zev Hns Hnrd Luck.
Zev, tho smartest 2-year-old of
the Rancocas stable, failed in the I
Hopeful renewal, 'which paid $3S,95oj
to Dunlin, the winner, bueause he i
ould not give that clever son of
Kair Play 15 pounds. But he ran
Dunlin to half a length, and beat
tjoshawk. Cartoonist, Enchantment
and Wilderness. In the Belmont
park futurity, Zov was unexpectedly
beaten by that surprisingly fast
young mare, Sally's Alley, but he
lieat Wildcrhess, Cyclops, Blossom
Time, Goshawk and Martingale.
An opportunity to competo for
either on the equal divisions of the
550,000 Maryland Futurity purse
was denied Zev. Ho suffered an In
jury in tho Belmont Bark Futurity
renewal that mado training him
afterward dangerous. Ono division
of the Maryland Futurity purse was
won by Sally's Alley, the other by
Blossom Time. Martingale defeated
Sally's Alley In tho run-oiff.
Hlldrpth'a biggest money earner
was Jiad 'Hatter. The amateur
harullcappers had. at tho end of the
season of 1921, thrown Mad Hatter
Into tho racing discards. The son of
Fair play was fit only for stud service
Winning fivo races, finishing second
nine tlme and third twlce, this il
lustrious "has been" earned $44,250,

and Sweep $13,092. 1'urchaso did
not come back -s Hildreth hoped
last winter ho might. Neither did
Mad Huttcr In Form.
Mad Hatter, as much an iron
horse us Exterminator, himself, in
p;.te of the harsh thinga that are1
i-.ud of him by tho unthoughtf ul who
r member only his failures when ho
U backed at unjustifiably short
prices, and forget his many splendid
performances under weight, was
never better than he was last sea-!
son. After winning the' Kings county
handicap at Jamaica he shouldered
1J9 pounds and whipped n smart
tflolii in tho Metropolitan, at Belmont
jurk. At Saratoga ho won the
Champlaln nnd had Exterminator
humping to beat him a neck In his
(Old Bones) fourth Saratoga cup.
Better than ever at Belmont park on
September 6, he galloped two miles
in tho Jockey club gold cup renewal
.a front of Edward R. BraUloy's
grsit 4-ycar-old mare. Bit of White
in 3:22 2-5.
Hildreth's subtlest skill wan shown
In tho handling of Grey Lag, tho
3-year-old champion of 1921. Star
Shoot handicapped Grey Lag with
ftielly feet. The British stallion
treated most of his sona and daugh
ters that way. Grey Lag has a ivny
of throwing shoes off working und
racing. Tho walls of his hoof's
won't hold nails. Grey Lag discard
ed one plato working at Churchill
Downs in May, 1921, tor tho Ken
tucky derby renewal. Behavo Your
self won. That was why ho did not
roo with Behave Yourself, Black
Servant, Tryster and Prudery.
Grey Lags did not look anything
hke a fair racing proposition at tho
beginning at tho season. Neverthe
less, this past master of tho art of
naking tho lamo and decrepit look
g. at got tho son of Star Shoot to the
I" at Xiolmont park in Juno in such
i'"Jlton ho breezed n mile In 1:36
tut, in front of the formidable Frl
s i e. Grey Lag was beaten in the
l::-ooklyn handicap, tho 1921 renewal
of which he won in fast time, but
Exterminator outlucked him. He
urned tho tables on Exterminator in
the Saratqpa handicap renewal
htch ho won In 2:03 4-5.

L.ttlo Chief was hardly first class,
hsi he looked mighty good at Sara-

4 BOXING CROWN
ARE LOST IN 1922,
BUFF LOSING PAIR
champions wero soparaied
lelr titles during a rather
tempestuoua yoar In boxing, Johnny
Buff being a victim of two major
operations. The reigning sensation,
however, was the stunning knockout
of Georges Carpenter by Battling
Siki, a half savage from Senegal,
in a bout for the
world's light j
heavyweight championship. Tho so
called "orchid man" us a 10-to-l
shot before tho bout, but Siki led
oil tho way after the second round
and scorod a clean knockout in the
Charges nnd counter charges were
aired after tho affair, each accusing
tho other of foul tactics. Only a
short time ago tho Senegalese, sus
pended and deprived of his title by
tho French authorities for unbecom
ing conduct, gavo out a statement
to tho effect that tno bout- was
framed, Tho question of a return
fight is being considered.
This was only one of many bouts
in whljh form turned handsprings.
A case In point was tho Mickey
Walker-Jack Britton fight, in which
tho welterweight titlo changed
hands. Britton was nn oddson fa
vorite until a short timo beforo tho
men entered tho ring, when the bet
ting shifted suddenly to Walker.
Wrilkcr Wins JCnslly.
Because of this, the Now. York
stato athletic commission called off
all bets, an unprecedented action oo
far as modern pugilism la concerned.
Walker easily earned tho decision,
buffeting Britton all over the ring
during the last nine rounds. '
At tho start of the year Buff was
the proud owner of tho world's ban
tamweight and tho American fly
weight tltlns, nnd at tho cud ho owns
neither. Joo Lynch deprived him ot
tho buntamwelght belt by scoring a
knockout In tho thirteenth round,
and a llttlo brown man from the
rico paddles of tho Philippines sub
sequently came along to flatten Buff
for tho long count in tho tonth round
thus acquiring tho flyweight title
Tho llttlo brown man was I'ancho
Villa, unknown nnd unsung 12
Another dethroned champion was
Geno Tunney. In an unguarded mo
ment Geno allowed himself to bo
inveigled into a match with Hariyl.
Urco, wim tne American ubih
heavyweight titlo at stake, nnd Greb
flailed his way to an easy victory nt
tho end ot 15 rounds. At the end
Tunney's faco had been reduced to
Jack Dempsey signed an agree
ment to meet Harry Wills for the
heavyweight titlo nt tho insistence
of tho New York state athletic com
mission, but nothing has come of it.
The commission Jiad set a precedent
In this rospoct by suspending John
ny KUbnno nnd Johnny Wilson for
failure to accept challenges for thoir
respective feathorwelght and mid
dleweight titles. Both ehnmplon
shlps wero declared vacated, but this
decision was not accopted In othor
Benny Leonard had his most ac
tive yoar since falling heir to tho
lightweight crown. This he defended
successfully against Rocky Knnsas,
Ever Hammur nd Lew Tendler, the
last-named collaborating in tha
greatest lightweight attraction since
dons first met Nelson. At the end
of 12 no-decislon rounds Leonard
was' awarded iho unofflo.al verdict
by a groat majority of the critics,
although Tondler had tha champion
