HORSE IS KING

The horse is king In Pasadena.
Bouthern California has no time for 111
smelling automobiles, but honors Us
earlier friend, the horse.
Animals of all classes and colors,
gaits and sizes, but every one of them
with the bluest of equine blood cours
ing through its veins, greeted the eyes
of the thousands of pernons at the
opening of the three days' horse show
given by the Pasadena Tournament of
Roses association at Tournament park,
Pasadena, yesterday. Being essential
ly a society affair, the concourse which
viewed the animal aristocrats was a
brilliant one. Society from all over
Southern California adorned the grand
stand and boxes and lent to the affair
a coloring In perfect accord to a cloud
. L<ooked at from any point of view the
opening day was a decided success.
The attendance was large and the
class of horses which paraded the Baw
dust, drawing their smart Equipages,
presented to the" eye a brilliant scene
and one which Southern California has
not had for years. -'-',■ .'../.
Tournament park Is apparently the
ideal place In which to hold an open
, air horse show. • The ring, with its
Judges' stand in the center, was .sur
rounded on three sides by the line of
carriages and horses. The fourth side
was given up to the grand stand, and
was crowded by. those who knew and
some who only thought they knew the
. fine point* and marks of quality fn the
horses in the ring.
L. V. Harkness' Prize Winners
All honors in the line of prize win
ning: belong almost entirely to L. V.
Harkness, whose horses were so well
pointed and met with such favor In
the eyes of the judges that they were
awarded the blue ribbon five times dur
ing the afternoon, while that mark of
second in merit, the red streamer,
adorned the necks of the Harkness
entries twice. In every event in which
>he had an entry Mr. Harkness secured
a ribbon, and at the close of the af
ternoon led the other exhibitors ! by
Close behind the Harkness exhibit in
the number of ribbons captured came
John S. Cravens of Pasadena. One
blue, three red and three yellow rib
bons were worn by the Cravens equines
during their parade of the field after
the .various event^. The other exhib
itors-shad to satisfy * themselves .with
three' firsts, three seconds and four
thirds between them, for the Harkness
and ' Cravens bridles wore ' all the other
ribbons to be given. ■■ l . ; ?" . !
'What was probably the event of the
day was the exhibit of harness horses
in : pairs, ' the vehicles being suitable t<
the. general scheme. Even the judges
could not at once decide between Happy
' Jack and Sunny Jim, drawing the
Cravens carriage; Frock and Frolic,
driven by L. V. Harkness; Cardinal
and Brown Prince, a second pair from
the Cravens stable; My Lord and My
: Lady, Graham E. Babcock's well
matched blacks, and Tommy Atkins
I and Chub, R. T. Goodhue's entry.
, Happy Jack and Sunny Jim finally
were awarded the blue mark of superi
ority and the Harkness pair was
adorned with the second prize, while
Cravens' other team, Cardinal and
Brown Prince, carried off the honors
attendant on the orange ribbon.
Frock, . the bay gelding* which repre
sented the Harkness forces with Frolic
in the event for teams, was awarded
the ' badge of honor in the competition
for mares and geldings hitched to run
abouts. Perfectly handled by Mrs.
I Macomber, and drawing a smart, high
wheeled runabout, Frock went through
his paces in the enclosure, and when it
'-came time to make an award of the
blue ribbon the judges immediately
• 'adorned Frock's neck with the azure
mark. The victory was one jof the
most popular of the afternoon, and"
when Mrs. Macomber guided the Hark
ness gelding from the ring she was
liberally applauded. One entry in the
same event which the spectators evi
dently thought deserving of a ribbon,
but of which the Judges. evidently had
their own ideas of placing the winners,
was ' the handsome bay drawing Mrs.
TV. G. Otis, jr., and her perfectly ap

field was better driven, but the animal
Itself did not come up to. the Judgeß'
mark of esteem and was left out of
the prizes. When Mrs. Otis left the
ring at the end of the exhibit she was
applauded nearly as heartily as' was
the winner of the event. .
The first honors among the trotllng
roadsters were captured by another
Harkness entry, . Moro, which was
thought the best, from a small field.
Dr.' Edmunds' Dagworth was second in
the eyes of the authorities, while Bab

by.W. L. Graves, Jr., of Los Angeles,
was chosen for the second, prize.

The last number on the card fur
nished the most exciting period of the
exhibit. Nine polo ponies, competently
and even daringly ridden by their
owners, competed for the honor of
wearing the blue ribbon. The little ani
mals were put through their paces close
to the grandstand and caused a flurry
as their owners, in a wild endeavor to
gain the favorable decision from the
judicial party, caused them to wheel on
a fast run ; or to whirl in and out be
tween posts' set a few feet apart while
going at a mad gait. B. N. Smith Jr.,
with his handsome sorrel gelding, Cres
cent, proved better than his competi
tors and was awarded first prize.

Weiss jr., was second, and H. G. Bun
