WIN AT ASCOT
HANS WAGNER TAKES HIS
Talent Bcore« on Bookt— Waterbury
Comes Through on Good Thing
That Netted the WHe
By Jay Davidson
Five favorites and one long shot
were flint past the post yesterday at
Ascot and that portion of the race-
Kolng public known as the "talent put
k crimp in the bank rolls of the seven
teen books which will even up many old
scores nnd soothe future pains the
other wny for come time to come.
Alsono, In the second race, was the
good thing which went through aa per
the program of expectations entertain
ed by thouc in on tho knowledge and a
considerable dividend was withdrawn
by the speculators after tho judges
hung up the Hsures which declared the
official result. ,
It was no secret that the Blute stable
had a sleeper in the race which wm due
to wake from Its nap, but for once tho i
layer of odds gave no heed to the In
formation" and the price was allowed
to vary from 10s to 20s, the greatest
portion of the money going in at 15 to 1.
Jockey Waterbury, who had not been
5n the saddle In a race since the dny he
rode three winners ut Ascot two years
ago, had the mount and the manner in
which he acquitted himself In handling
the good thing throughout the race
demonstrated that this boy Is back in
form. In his heydey he was one of the
beat pigskin artists.
• Alencon, the favorite, was away well
In the bunch and loafed in a leisurely
manner until into the stretch. When
Walsh shook him up and started him
for the front, Alsono was leading the
van and going easily, with much In re
serve to withstand the challenge of the
The duel down the stretch was one of
the prettiest contests seen on the
course this season und as the three
leaders raced under the wire in a bunch
the grandstand audience rose to its feet
and wildly applauded the game thor
oughbreds and their riders.
Hans Wagner Wins
The feature race of the day was the
fourth on the card and brought five
good ones together. Hans Wagner,
which was withdrawn from the Jona
than club handicap Thursday and re
entered in this race, was made the
even money favorite and was played
to 4 to 5 at post time.
Honus was away with his nose in
front of the bunch and hastened over
to ■ the rail. At the quarter he took
command and puled away from the
quartet behind him, holding the lead
in an exercise gallop under the wire.
Harber was a mild good thing in this
race and as the field went under the
wire, his nose was a few inches In front
of Bragg, which was an easy third.
The race was run In the fastest time
of the meeting, Wagner requiring 1:41%
for the journey of a mile and could
have made it in better time had he been
extended. ■;. „ \
Retropaw, with Aubuchon up, won
the first race because of the excellent
finish put up by his rider. K. Lang was
on Lacene, which had the rail and was
In front in the final eighth until with
in a few yards of the wire, when Aubu
chon gave v demonstration of hfs rid
ing ability by shoving the Curl candi
date first past the post through his
sheer efforts. With boys reversed, La
cene would have won.
Fireball made his season debut at As
cot in the third race by bringing home
the long end of the $500 purse for S. M.
Williams. Confessor, the contender,
put up a game struggle, but Fireball
was too good for this one and Walsh
sat still while the Ben Strome colt
breezed home on the bit.
The Blute candidate, Tramotor,
should have been third, but Carroll was
of slight assistance at the finish, when
Lawrence on Salario lifted the Baldwin
entry across the line a whisker to the
good for peep money.
Twelve horses faced the barrier In the
fifth rare and there were an even dozen
good things played for a killing. J. L.
Holland's Masterson carried the public
money and won all the way, Peeping
Tom getting second money and Valen
cia taking the short end of the purse.
Ikki was the class of a field of Indif
ferent class in the final race of the
afternoon and expe'.lenced no difficulty
In disposing of Old Mike, the grandpa
of the race, and The Gadfly.
Walsh had the leg on Ikkl and when
lie called on the son of Sir Walter, the
colt responded with a great burst of
speed and ran over his field, winning
tho second race of the day for the Wil
liams stable and allowing Walsh to
take credit for two winning mounts on
Potrero Grande, which was fancied
because of his good Knowing in win
ning from the speedy Sun Mark Thurs
day, could not get up a gallop and
landPd an indifferent fourth. Lanark
wus fifty lengths to the bad at the end.
Stake Race Today
The card for toduy is the best of the
meeting thUH far and Includes six
races, two of the contests being high
class events. The Santa Catalina sell
ing stakes is the fourth race of tho
afternoon and a free handicap for a $500
purse is the sixth event.
Ninety-seven nominations were made
to the Santa Catalina selling stakes,
but ninety of these are missing In the
list of probable starters. This stake Is
rit seven furlongs and carries $1000
lidded money, which makes the event
worth $2180 gross, or $1780 to the winner.
Memories, J. L. Holland's speed mar
vel which won the Jonathan club handi
cap Thursday, packs top weight with
109 pounds, which Ih four pounds more
than rhe carried last out.
This one will probably be favorite
and should win. She Is In her best form
now and has a turn of speed that is
good enough to beat anything shown
tit Ascot this seuHon.
Memories ran a great race Thursday
in the Jonathan club handicap and
stepped one mile and a sixteenth In
1:49 over a track three seconds slower
than will prevuil today. She ran leis
urely uqtll into the stretch, when she
moved up and assumed first position
and held it in a canter under the wire.
Don Domo, if he la right, will be the
contender, but he Is but recently ar
rived from the brushes and may not be
equal to the occasion this afternoon.
The gray streak performed in good
lime in all his recent start* In Texas
but huu shown nothing in his workouts
elnce arriving at Ascot to Justify the
belief that he cun defeat Memories.
Kinsman Is Dangerous
Kinsman has six pounds off his last
tace, when he cume from eighth pog|.
tlon at the flrut quarter and ran Golden
Jjule crazy to get a head decision In the
Futurity course dash In X:l2 Thurßday
If Kinsman comes back with the
name sort of a race an shown Thursday
be will bo second without much doubt.
FORMER CHAMPION MAY BE MATCHED TO BATTLE HERE
Young Corbett (William Rothwell)
With a careful boy up and a judicious
ride, Kinsman Is the most dangerous
horse In the race and will be the one
for Memories to defeat for first money.
Kinsman ran over Judge Denton
Thursday and should do so again to
day if the Bonsack candidate gets in
Philanthropist, Lille B. and Silver Sue
have speed but not the brave hearts
necessary to overcome the efforts of
Booker will probably have the mount
on Memories, Kunz on Kinsman, and
Preston on Don Domo. These are good
boys and will get out the best that
their charges can do. Booker has an
edge on the other boys, however, and
Is on the best horse. The race, there
fore, should result Memories, Kinsman
und Don Domo.
Four starters will go to the post in
the sixth race, which la the handicap
event. This gives promise of furnish
ing one of the best contests of the meet
ing and none of the starters can be
denied a look-in for first money.
Marshal Ney, Borghesl and Sais were
in the Jonathan handicap Thursday and
on the form of that race, Ney should
experience but slight dlfflcuty In wln-
Ney has seven pounds more weight
to carry today at the same distance, but
he is in fine form just now and the
workout of his Thursday race should
put him on edge.
Sals Is speedy and will go the mile
at a lively ■ clip, but when real racing
begins this one is liable to chuck it up.
If Sals could hold his speed for the
route, nothing else in the race would
be able to get near him. Ho should be
Bragg picks up five pounds from his
race yesterday and will not like the
added impost. He is not good enough
in this field to take up weight and win,
but should be In the money.
Borghesi is speedy, but will not do
today. His showing in the Jonathan
club handicap was very ordinary and
that Is about what will occur today
when he hooks up in this field.
The attendance for the two days of
the meeting has exceeded the expecta
tions of the management by several
Hammeraway was a good thing yes
terday and carried considerable money
which he failed to bring home. This
one acted as if short of work.
The track yesterday was two sec
onds faster than on Thursday and If
clear skies continue until race time
today it will be lightning fast.
Two days of racing have passed
without a claim of foul riding by any
jockey. Neither has there been a dis
qualification nor an accident.
The talent continued the raid upon
the bookies yesterday, taking out $40,
000 from the seventeen operators in the
ring. Kvery winner was heavily back
ed, and the good thing, Alsono, was
a stunning blow.
Old Mlko was as good as 30 to 1 and
was unbacked. It will not occur again,
as the aged gelding displayed a sur
prising burst of speed and staying
qualities yesterday when he ran over
Protrero Grande and The Gadfly.
W. A. Woods, who npslsts Jake Beck
ley in getting the ponies to face the
right way at the barrier, was severely
injured by a kick on the loft leg when
Memories reared bnckward at the post
Thursday. He will be off duty for a
couple of weeks.
The first steeplechasing event of the
meeting is scheduled for Monday and
Is the first race on the program. There
are more jumpers at Ascot this sea
son than formerly and these events
will be features twice each week dur
ing the meeting.
The J. L.. Holland stable Is jumping
into favor with the speculators regard
less of past performaces of the en
try. All these horses seem to be on
edge and am always knocking at the
front door when they fail to lead the
procession to the wire.
Steve Brodie, not the bridge jumper
and high diver, but the old time crack
rider of jumpers, is at Ascot, having
arrived yesterday from Oakland, and
will accept mounts again. He is a
fearless rider and an experienced pi
lot of the "flying squirrels."
Barney Schrieber's horses have not
been in front yet, although the genial
German has a stable filled with good
onea that will be heard from before
the seuson is over. The eons and
daughters of Sain have scored on the
principal courses of the country and
are high-class racers.
Tommy Burns tried his luck at
guessing how they would run yester
day und quit the day almost $6 to the
good. Tommy ran to one of the books
to play a bot tip, Alsono, In the sec
end ruce and offered $30 on the good
thing, . but the bell tolled before tho
bookmaker accepted the money and It
wai all off. After the race Tommy

HANLON AND HERMAN SIGN
Lightweights Post Forfeit Money and
Select Training Quarters — Will
Go Twenty Rounds De
Eddie Hanlon and Kid Herman met
Manager Tom McCarey of the Pacific
Athletic club last night and agreed
upon all the conditions for their bat
tle December 15, and signed articles
and posted $500 forfeits for making
weight and appearing in the ring.
They will box twenty rounds at 133
pounds, weigh in at 6 o'clock on the
day of the battle.
Kid Herman, whose real name is
Herman Landfield, is regarded as one
of the cleverest boys In his class in
training, and has defeated some of
the topnotchers in the lightweight dl
Herman's best fights have been over
a distance, and all his defeats, with
one exception, have ben sustained in
limited round affairs of less than ten
The sensation of a knockout Is un
known to him, and he has battled with
such clever boxers as Abe Attell,
Austin Rice, Kid Abel, Charles Neary,
Tommy Mowatt, Benny Yanger, Joe
Bernstein and Jack O'Keefe.
Herman fought Abe Attell to a "no
decision" result in Chicago last year,
knocked out Clarence Forbes in six
rounds at Kansas City, won from Jack
McClelland in twenty rounds at Kan
sas City, won from Kid Abel in twen
ty rounds at Kansas City, lost to
Charlie Neary twice at Milwaukee in
1903 in six and four-round bouts, lost
to Tommy Sullivan In twenty rounds
in 1903, lost to Benny Yanger In six
rounds in 1902, won from Tommy Mo
watt in six rounds and fought six
round draws with Jack O'Keefe and
Joe Bernstein in 1902.
In 1903 and 1904 he fought nineteen
battles, losing three. He won seven
on knock outs, won on a foul once,
fought one "no decision" battle and
drew with four.
His best showings have been mado
in the past two years and he has
forged to the fore rapidly by his show
ings against topnotchers throughout
It is McCarey's intention to close ne
gotiations for a match betwen Aurello
Herrera and Young Corbett for De
cember 29, matching the winner with
the winner of the Hanlon-Herman bat
tle early in January.
Young Corbett has asked McCarny
to match him with Herera or Han
lon for this month and Herrera has
accepted the proposition of McCarey.
Young Corbett has been notified by
telegraph of the proposed match and
conditions and Is expected to make
favorable reply by telegraph today.
It la Young Corbett's intention to
start for California within a week and
If the terms offered by McCarey are
agreeable to the former champion, he
will come direct to Los Angeles and
go into training at once.
Herman will train at the pavilion
for the battle with Hanlon and Eddie
will prep at his former quarters at
Santa Monica. Training quarters will
be established today and the little bat
tlers will get down to hard work at
13. Walsh, rode both winners and also
holds the record for wining mounts In
one day thus far. Another Williams
entry, Alencon, was favorite In the
second race and was beaten by the
good thing, Alsono.
C. A. Ross of St. Louis hns arrived
with a strong string, which will be
campaigned at Ascot throughout the
Beaßon. The stable entry, Pyrrho, wan
scratched out of the flfth race yester
day because Hoss did not care to risk
the good gelding In a field of sixteen.
Kastern horses showed in fine form
yesterday and dispelled the illusion
that the cross-country trip necessa
rily affected the running ability of
the bangtails. The climatic conditions
in this portion of the world more than
overbalances any ill effects of the

ZUBRICK TO FIGHT TRACEY
Clever Welter Battler Meets Northern
Scrapper at Welter Weights
Warren Zubrlck writes to The Herald :
from Portland that he is matched to
box twenty rounds with Tommy Trucey |
at Vancouver December 8 and Is in
training for the battle. |
Zubrlck says that Jimmy Hutch, who,
came to Los Angeles from Buffalo to ;)»
sist In training Eddie Hanlon for his
battle with Herrera, is with him and
has been matched in a preliminary. :
Tracey and Zubrlck will meet at 1441
pounds and In hiß letter ZubricK ex-i
presses satisfaction at getting on at
; his real fighting weight anl says that I
he has sworn off going up against mid
dlewelghts, light weights, heavy
weights, switch engines and cyclnnee.
In future he will not accept a match
with any one at more than 145 pounds,
and he believes he can win from any of
them at this weight. This bit of Infor
mation is accepted by admirers of the
lighting dentist as good news, as Zu-
brick has been warned upon numerous
occasions against going out of his class
to get a fight.
The battle with Gorman demonstrat
ed that Zubrlck was treading on
dangerous ground In conceding weight
to his opponents. Gorman was as
awkward as a steer In the ring, but his
rushes were annihilating to anybody or
thing he butted up against and the
bteam behind his blows was generally
at popping off point.
Zubrlck relates the story of his bat
tle with Gorman In a humorous vein.
Baying that every time he landed on
Gorman with full strength he wa« tho
victim of a boomerang and Incidentally
knockd himself down.
The cut over his eye, he says, was in
flicted by Gorman's'head when the Kid
butted him In the second round of their
tight. He asserts that he was dazed
from the effects of theinjury and blood
streaming into his eye until the eighth
Zubrlck will return south after the
light, unless he gets on another match
in the north, and is conditionally
matched to nght Frank Fields, who
was awarded the decision over Sam Mc-
Clure at Ban Diego recently.

JACK JOHNSON FIGHTS A DRAW
By Associated Press.
BALTIMORE. Dec. I.— Jack Johnson
and young Peter Jackson, both of Cali
fornia, met in a twelve-round fight be
fore the Eureka Athletic: club tonight.
At Its conclusion no decision was given.
Johnson had undertaken to knock Jack
son out within twelve rounds or take
the smaller end of the purse. He failed
to do so, largely owing to Jackson's re
markable ability to keep himself cov
ered and to the fact that Jackson did
not hesitate to run away from his op
ponent. Johnson pounded him unmerci
fully whenever he could reach him. but
was unable to secure a knockout blow.
