CarHet .Top Weight and ti Away
' .From Pott Last, but Indulges
',*£ in Exercise Gallop Alt
1 5 the Way
Jay Davidson
Eugenia Burch won the Hollywood
handicap in a common canter yester
day'and gave Ascot race-goers another
demonstration of what Is possible for
a real rfcee horse to do.
The Curtis mare was always favorite
Jn the market and was equally as
popular with the thousands who wit
nessed her greatest efforts. Her race
was the equal to that tit Bearcatcher
-when he defeated Hand2arra In the
match race Saturday and vigorous ap
plause greeted her as she romped un
der the wire a winner without having
been extended to her best efforts.
"Commencer" Dwyer sent the field oi
nine starters away to a perfect start,
but In the scramble for portions Eu
genia wound up last of the bunch.
At the half she was eighth, running
with . the ease that characterizes the
holiday stroll of a peacock on parade.
Buchanan let out a wrap here ana
allowed the great mare to begin her
run and she slowly and without seem
ing effort passed by the seven horses
Jn front of her, being only a head be
hind at the entrance to the stretch.
Eugenia was merely breezing and
she continued to breeze all the way
home, cantering under the wire two
lengths ahead of Retropaw, which was
running his head off to stall off Varie
The time was not extraordinary, the
mile and one-sixteenth being run In
1:46 3-4, but the Curtis mare was ap
parently' out for an exercise gallop and
was . so much better than anything In
the race that she was not asked to do
aught but win of her own accord.
At. the last moment, Mrs. James
Blute added Sals and J. Grant Lyman
put Debaker In as added starters, but
these two. were never in the running
and never got a call during the journey
around the track.
Retropaw surprised the talent by
running second, out-nosing Varieties
at the wire. Retropaw was held cheap
ly in the speculation, opening at 103
and closing at double that price. Re
tropaw was recently taken out of a
Belling race by H. B. Wittenberg after
winning for his former owner, Jame3
•Varieties, which was also taken out
of a selling race last week, H. L. Jones
& Co. bidding him up and taking him
from William Walker, set the pace all
the way to the stretch, where he was
passed by Eugenia Burch.
,In the run home Retropaw finished
stoutly and outnodded th e Jones geld
ing. Varieties secured third money;
however, by four lengths.
Han« Wagner Win«
Hans Wagner, which has earned the
reputation of being the most consist
ent performer at Ascot this season,
picked up top weight and demonstrat
ed that he Is as much of a sprinter
as he is a handicap runner.
-"Boots" Durnell seemed to have a
ltrst mortgage on the first and sec
ond moneys in this race, the $500 free
handicap affair at seven furlongs, hav
ing New Mown Hay and Toupee In
as his entry.
On their past performances, the en
try was made favorite at 8 to 5 and the
first- wager made on these caused Uie
eraser to get busy and even money was
thef bookies', offering at post time.
T^ew Mown Hay was first away from
the post, . but immediately surrendered
to Hans Wagner, which darted to the
fore In a great rush and put daylight
between himself and the other five
Honus made every post a winning
one and kept up his running all the
way to the wire, winning eased up
by i nearly three lengths. The other
"speed marvels" could not warm him
Although Hans opened at 2 1-2 to 1
and closed at 3 1-2 to 1 because of a
lack of play on his chances, his vic
tory was a popular one and he received
as much applause and vocal evidences
of good will as was given Eugenia
Toupee made a strong bid in the
stretch, but there was nothing doing
for the entry or any other horse in the
race except Honus. Toupee outfooted
the. others and secured place by one
length from Druid, which was abso
lutely last in the stretch.
Capitanazo lay in second place all
the way to the stretch, where lie faded
away next to last. About all that Capi
tanazo did of note in the race was to
Interfere with everything else behind
Brackets for Dixelle
Strange as it may read, a favorite
actually won the opening race of the
day, Dlxelle accomplishing the seem
ingly impossible feat In a common
Dlxelle seemed to hold the race safe
on form, but when the hoodoo of favor
itism was forced upon her the wise
heads shook perceptibly, and Trainer
Williams' lips tightened as he realized
the fearful prospects ahead for his en
jockey Miller had the mount and
piloted Dixelle clear of all Jams, pock
ets and possible Interferences until
■well into the stretch, when Dixelle
succeeded in poking her nose to the
Although running on her own cour
age and setting her own pace. Dlx
elle waltzed under the wire five lengths
ahetj of i Rubiana and Chickadee,
whlfeh finished in the order named.
Form players and the superstitious
element of the speculating bunch were
dumbfounded, speechless and heart
sick in amazement at the feat of the
Williams filly.
The accomplishment hns made h«>r
ffti-nona- and Trainer Williams Is so
puffed up because of the deed that the
choicest oats on th* coast have been
orrtered for Dlxplle's Christmas dinner.
El Donoso cheered the players of
long shots by going to the front Im
mediately nfter the start and holding
the lead for half a mile, hut this one
found a pasteboard track too hard Jog
ging and pulled up to a walk, finishing
at the bottom of the list.
Filly* Fast Time
Mrs. J. L. Holland's Hester W.
spread-eagled her field In the second
rate and won by two lengths in near
to record time, negotiating the five fur
longs In l:00V4. which is one-half a sec
ond slower than the track record set
t>y Hold KoEf.
Neatness and Babo B. were coupled
in the betting and were made equal
choice* In th« betting.
Hester W. broke flying and tmme
ellately went to the front. From flag
tail to tho wire it was easy ealliug
and the Holland fllly was never In
trouble, • •>'
Neatness ran to her marlc and was
an easy second, three lengths In front
of Lotta Gladstone, which war out for
the money with a determination ttiat
surprised everybody.
Silver Sue, which was favorite In the
books, found the distance too short
and the pace too swift and failed to
get a call, finishing an Indifferent fifth.
Rustling Silk ran gamely, but was
sorp going to the post and could hot
resist the challenge of Lotta Olndstone
In the drive home, losing third place
by a head.
P.iruma set out to startle the world
on her first out, but became dlttguMed
with the enthusiasm displayed by
Heater W. and chucked it early, finish*
ing* tenth.
This was the best 2-year-old race of
the meeting and the remarkably good
time made by the winner shows the
Holland filly to be entitled to recog
nition among any of her division at
It Is believed that had she been ex
tended to her best efforts she could,
have tied the track record, If not
broken It.
Cello Takes Third
Tho third race wn« a stag party for
2-year-olds and Macumber was the
good thing.
The Tlchenor gelding opened at 3 to
1. but everybody of a speculative turn
of mind seemed to fancy his chances
and sought to get a slice of the lib
eral odds offered, causing the books to
make an erasure and substitute 17 to 10.
Joy relgr.ed supreme among the
wise guys" until the closing strides,
as Macumber got away and went to the
front at the first quarter, holding the
lead to the flnul eighth.
Cello was next to last until the jour
ney was half completed, when he
moved Into second place and In the
drive home the Elmwood farm colt put
up a game struggle and succeeded In
getting his nose first under the wire.
Macumber waa second, two lengths
ahead of Bantam, which found the
pace too strenuous after the first half
Louie Bonsack permitted nearly
everybody to take the cars for home
immediately after the final race by
putting Del Coronado over the plate.
Golden Light waa made favorite for
this race, while Del Coronado opened
at 7 and soared a point, closing at Bs.
Golden Buck Imagined he was In a
soft spot and set out to run away with
first money, leading 1 the procession to
the stretch. Here Del Coronado
"yumped" Into the lead and all that
was necessary thereafter was the
Del Coronado won by two open
lengths, with Golden Light second and
The Huguenot third.
Golden Buck became offended at the
efforts of Del Coronado and faded Into
nothingness, finishing fifth.
Big Fields Today
Five selling races and one purse
event Is the offering of the Jockey club
today and the fields are unusually
large, the smaller having eight prob
able starters.
Ordinarily the purse race in an ar
rangement of this kind would be the
feature event, but all the races are
evenly matched in point of interest,
with the possible exception of the
fifth, which will probably absorb more
consideration than any of the others.
The fifth race is a selling affair at
one mile and seventy yards and eight
entries are carded to start.
Orchan is in with top weight, 112
pounds, but this one prefers mud and
has shown nothing at Ascot, although
winning a race in the slop at Oakland
since the coast peason began.
Don Domo is in with J.lO pojmds up
and appears to have' the edge' on the
others on form. If the gray streak is
held in check for the first half he
will probably be the one to beat for
first money.
Lord Badge would ■■ be"har*S l to" beat
here If he only had a race in him, but
he has not been out since opening day.
Hippocrates is another high-class racer
that would eat up everything in this
race if he was ready, but It is prob
able that ho will need this race to put
him In condition to go to his best form.
Ikki won his first and only out at
Ascot, beating Old Mike and The Gad
fly, and showed fair form at Oakland
before Ascot opened. He appears to be
the contender.
Revolt is a fair plater and should be
In the money unless a sleeper wakes
The probabilities are that the result
will be Don Domo, Ikkl, Revolt.
Anybody's Race
The opening** event will be a case of
write your own ticket. The class of tht<
field is an unknown quantity and every
one of the fourteen probable starters
has a good chance to win.
Alta G, Anti-Trust, Young Marlow
and Ulloa, the latter nine years old
are making their first start at Ascot
this season and neither has been out
for many, many weeks.
James J. Corbett is aptly named, as
he is only seven years old and has been
a once-great. Whether ho is a has
been now must await his next perform
Pettijohn has the chance of a life
time to pay Ed fcitubbs for his board
and lodging by winning this race,
but .
Pachuca shows up best on form and
will surely be a 1-2-3. In two previous
cuts this one has been in the money.
Susie Christian is several times over
due, but may continue her inert state
The probabilities are that Paohuca
will win, Pettijohn may be second and
Susie Christian may get third.
J. F, Donohue, Sir Brlnkley and Fair
atene will put up a hot argument in
the futurity course dash, which Is the
second race on the card.
Sir Brinkley has the call and will be
favorite aud If his race last Saturday
against Big Ben has been of any ad
vantage, he will win easily, as Donohiie
and Falratene are yet maidens.
Falrateno should be second and Don
ohue (should not be worse than third.
Sea Slck's Chance
Nine are carded to go to the post
In the third race and Dlxelle, which
wen yesterday, will probably be one of
the entries that will be scratched
Dlxelle could repeat here and if she
N started back today should be given
preference over the bunch. It Is Im
probable that she will go. however.
Sea Sick Is beet of the others and,
with Dlxelle Gut of the way, should
€am brackets from Hilona, Anona and
Alderman Batt.
Alderman Batt is the dangerous en
try, and may be the surprise party by
winning. He his shown to advantage
In hla two stnrts at Astot this season
It may b* that Se.i Sick will win. with
Mderman Batt second and Hilon-i
Dollie Weithoff should win the
fourth race, with a good start. She
showed to her old-time form In her last
out and should be Improved today.
Elfin King Is in light and will try for
biackets In thin company, but may find
the task too difficult. He should be in
the motley, however.
K. C. Runte Is about ready to win
and on his showing against Vlona Fri
day should be the third horse in the
There are fourteen entries here and
if all go to t tin post theita will be ullght
ihunce for anything thut does not broul;
to the front' at the start.
Itacing luck will prove the deciding
factor in the result and as those named
herein are quick to get into action
at the start ami are on a par with all
others in point or racing ability, the

J. L. McOlnnis sent Elizabeth F to

iv rush to the ring on the hunch that

honors. Had J. Waldere Kirk gazed

tion a "S3O lavender vest, the former

The largest crowd of the season was
at Ascot yesterday and the Jam In the

and a row of men attd women lined th*

The walk In. fr6nt tit the stand was
i also & constant Jam.
There may be plenty a-doing today In
the selling race war. as tha jockey club
offers ample opportunities for the grat
ification of the ambitions of the anl
mose horsemen with five selling race*

I the list of probable starters.

thereby, and ran third in the Holly

Varieties Is not a sensational perform
er by any means, but has not been out
of the money In forty two starts. This
is consistency with a vengeance and
should be a model for several other
horses to copy after.
An auction sale of horses Is adver
tised for 12:30 o'clock today in the
paddock at Ascot. 8. M. Williams and
Mlsa . Maud Mullett have dissolved
: partnership and this necessitates the
I sale of the partneriantp raoers, which
includes Good Cheer, itequlter, Dlxelle,
' Henry Me, Oona Ventura, Alarlu, lied
Hiill and Coco, iloxle Angarolu will
also put Flammula up for sale and
I Karly Wright will dispose of The Irish
man. This sale will bo the first held at
Ascot this season.
!Xli» Hone gelling etake .will be. the
Xew Year's attraction at Ascot and
will be one of the most valuable stakes
of tho meeting. It is a selling sweep
stakes for three-year-olds and upward
at one and one-sixteenth miles, with
$2000 added, of which sum George Rose
donates $1000. This stake has seventy
five nominations und on a baeils of ten
starters, which Is the average thus
far, it will have a gross value of $3150,
of which $2650 goes to the winning
stables, $300 to the second und $2uo to
the third. The conditions are faulty,
in that it is required that starters
be named through tho. entry box. on the
day previous to the race, thus making
the entries due on Sunday. This will
probably be changed by announcement
of the jockey club and entries will
probably be received on the Saturday
before New Year.

Irving B. Clement
Judging from the program arranged
for this afternoon, Becretary Jasper
paid a visit to the dog pound. There
In no handicap or purse, outfllde of tha
one for two-year-old maidens, as a fea«
The best race of the day Is the fifth,
which brings out seven that are even
ly matched.
ljlppocraten made such a good show-
Ing in the Coronado Beach letting
slakes that he will be a hard horse to
beat today with any klnj of good
racing luck.
Don Domo, the gray streak, Is asked
to go over a distance which he do«s
not very much fancy. Ills early speed
should ennble him to steal a long lead,
which should lnnd him Into the place.
Lord Badge makes his first nppear*
nnco nnd will have Ikkl and Ethylene
to beat for the place. Ho has been
working* well.
The first rnco looks like a toss up
between Htmle Christian, I'nchuca, Pet«
tljohn and Myrtlo 11. They will prob->
iibly nlsh In this order. Tho start
find riders will havo a lot to do
to determine the winner.
J, F. I >oiiohii<> stand* out by lilmflclf
In tho second race. lie whn all but
left In his lnst race, ami If he gels
uway well today should poke his noso
tinder the wire first. . >
Kiiiratene Is Improving with each
rnco und In nhout due to do Bomethltitf,
Will bo a dangerous factor.
Sir Brlnkley has twenty-seven pound*!
more weight up than he had .Saturday,
which might stop him. y
Toller showed early speed In his last
race and ran as If short. Might be v
surprise. •
Bea Sick, Hilona. Dixene and. Sun
Mark have the third raco all to them*
Selves when form Is considered.
Tho others will only be in tha way<
Son. Sick has been finishing strong in
her In«t two ran:*, as she possesses lot*
of speed- and ie game. I pick' her M
Hilona will find the distance a trifle
far, but she has only Dlxolle to beat
for place, sun Mark will be right thMe
in the end.
Old Dutiful should come right back
and -win today again. Ho is In r&rft
form at present and Can beat better
E. C. Runte and Vlona -Will fight It
out for the place money. The rest, ouN
side of Whoa Bill, which is a bleeder 1
nnd Klfln King, which is wind broken,
don't figure to have a chance on dope.
Prince Chlng ran a bang up second
to Money Muss in one of her previous
races. If he runs back to that race
he should romp home an easy winner
Belle Klnney Is very speedy, but Is
a bad betting proposition, as she is a
bod actor at the post. » ■
Prince Magnet should hold tho bal*
ance safe. He might wake Up and be
returned the winner.
Search Me and Theo Case have an
outside chance to run in the money.

fumbles keeping the Santa Barbara
boys from gaining a touchdown.
The only touchdown of the game was
made early In the second half by Hen
derson, the Santa Barbara left half
back, who played a cross buck through ■
the Los Angeles left tackle.
Santa Barbara was pushing slowly
toward their opponents' goal when time
was called. There were many brilliant '
individual plays on both sides.
Captain Burson was in the game all
round, but received a knee kick early
In the second half that Injured him
severely, but with stubborn nerve he
Insisted on finishing the game, al
though he staggered around the flfeld
like a drunken man.
