THREE favorites and a couple of Rood
things that did Just as well so far as
tfiose speeding the old year out at
Santa Anita were concerned, came
through in time to chase Mister Nineteen
Hundred and Seven oft the earth and
give at least two bookies a chance to
rest from their labor*.
One very hot thing in the shape of
Billy McKinneys East End and a luke

tide, but they were playing to full
houses all afternoon in the rear of the

along when F. E. Shaw beat a bunch of
supposedly real horses. Sir Edward had

and Preen, making his first appearance
away from the Metropolitan circuit, was
fancied as second choice around twos.
F. E. Shaw went to 20. and General Haley
drew but a scattering fire at a five-point
When they paraded past the stand on
their way to the six furlong pole nothing
was heard but Sir Edward. Preen

A delay of six minutes was recorded

the seven raced like a learn for ft hun
dred yards. Here Lord Nelson took up
the running, closely attended by Preen
and Sir Edward. Preen then held the
Job for a quarter, where Sir Edward was
given command, to lead Preen Into the
stretch by a head, with Lord Nelson
third, and F. E. Shaw close up in fourth
It looked like the favorite at the pad
dock, for after a sharp brush Sir Edward
made. Preen and Lord Nelson stop to
nothing. Martin moved F. E. Shaw up
on the outside, and right, at the wire
caught Sir Edward, to win by a head.
General Haley, badly bumped rtul clpnr
out of It to the half, ran a grand race,
and came through like a shot, to be
third, a head in front of Creston.
Wise Child Scores
Wise Child was the Three-Star Henne
»ey for the opening number, and in the
field of ten maiden two-year-olds was
held at nine to two, being on second call
to Velma C. Waldorf got as high as 8
to 1 in the ring before the Carman fol
lowers slaughtered the numbers and cut
the odds in two.
For most of the seven furlongs it
looked like Velma. as IcniUlng carried
her along out in front to make some nice
pace. Wise Chilrl was kept within strik
ing distance all the way. and, when
Velma C decided to fonl the public and
quit the wise one came along to win by
five lengths. Velma C managed to hold
the place because Lois Cavanaugh, the
third home, had nothing at til.
Making his first start this season, Es
calantc, the old sprinter which was al
ways a favorite in these parts, was made
an equal choice with Teacress at post
time, two for one being the prevailing
price. Escamado and Mansard were shot
full of holes, ar.fi when the Held of eleven
wandered over to the five and a half fur
long mark they were next in demand.
The start was had for The Arrowed
and Luokett, two outsiders, and Esca
lante and Talarand moved along to the
front. At the final turn Escalante was
leading by three lengths, with Talarand
still second, and Teacreas fifth. Esca
lante kept right on his way to win easily
by two lengths, with Teacress running
over the rest In time to beat Talarand
out of the short end.
Two to one was too good to miss on
East End. so Billy McKinney anij his
friends unloaded on the Ogden gelding
and knocked the price down to evens.
King Wllda, the legitimate favorite, was
overlooked in the shuffle find went down
to the post as good as five to one. He
was an easy winner, with Harry Scott
second and Phil gloe third. East End
stopped when the drive came and got
Nice Start for All
Holtman sent the bunch of ten out of
the mile chute In nice array, Phil Igoe
taking up the running after UncU Henry
had run a quarter at the head of the
procession. East End tacked on at the
half and, together with King Wilda, kept
Philip company to the head of the stretch.
Here East End was moved along and
appeared all over a winner, but backed
up and allowed King Wllda to go to the
front and win. Harry Scott ran an even

ahead of Phil Igoe. lor the place ticket,
the latter easily sticking tn part of the
money when Ea£t End stopped. After
the race East End changed hands, J. B.

Baron Esher, played from threes to

Easter night, was all the money In the
fifth race, and won from a field of five
by five lengths. Jocund managed to stick
the mile and an eighth and was second,
with Christine A third.
The Baron caused a delay at the post

By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Dec. 31.—The charges
made by Matthew P. Halpin in his state
ment giving his side of his controversy
with a number of athletes who took part
In the Olympic games at Athens, have
made the situation more serious than
It is said that Ray C. Ewery, the
Jumper, who is accused by Halpin of
professionalism, will be called before the
registration committee of the Amateur
Athletic union to show cause why he
should not be disqualified on Halpin's
charges, and that ilalpin will be called
upon to substantiate his charges.
H.ilpin states that Ewery has taken
part in contests in circuses and at meets
not sanctioned by the Amateur Athletic
union. The controversy is the main
topic of conversation around the athletic
clubs, and there seems to be a disposi
tion on the part of many to attempt to
bring the controversy to an end and
without further publicity, as It Is recog
nized that the trouble already has re
flected seriously on American athletics
Unless the controversy is amicably set
tled, it is not Improbable that the general
committee of the London Olympic games
will lake the matter up. So far, It is
stated, only $100 has been contributed to
the fund to pay the expenses of an Amer
ican team at the games next summer,
and the arguments among the athletes,
dozens of whom are seeking the news
papers with their troubles, will net aid
In the collection of money for the team.
In tin- meantime, college men are
watching the controversy closely, and It
Is said that preparations are now under
way to raise a fund and offer to the
American committee a team composed
of the strongest college athletes In the
country for the London competitions.

Stray to beat, which he can do. Outside,
of Smirker, the others have a very slight
The second number Is more of a guess-
Ing contest than anything else, as none
of the babies have started. I will rely
on works in selecting them here. Val
jean works well for Sam Hildreth and
with a good break may be In front all
the way. I tampans Is a good colt, and
as that clever post rider. Shilling, will be
astride, look for him to lie second. Walsh
has two entered, and they are good
ones, bo be on the alert, as they may
beat thorn all. Becluse and High Ormonde
also have a good chance.
Orilene May Win
The third race should be a good con
test, as four figure very close. Orilene
looks a ibade the best on form, but ehe
Is not much at that, as she quits at
times. Daruma has a fine burst of speed |
and she may beat the lop one. The
star danger Is Summer Cloud, for If a
good boy rides she can win. as she has
not shown her true form. Sanfara goes
well In her works and may beat her
Probably the hardest race of the dny Is
the Rose Selling Stakes, which brings
out the best horses at the trafk. Frank
Fllttner may look a oinch on paper, but
If he meets with any bad racing luck he
will be beaten, as Chimney Sweep Is a
good horse right now and the distance
suits him so nicely that he has a good
chance to win. Edwin Gum ehoulrt go
well all thn way and should at least
get some par', of 111* purse. Molesey can
be looked upon t» run an improved race,
as he was short his lust nut. Kilter and
Marster both ran good races last time
out and any of these may upset calcula
tions by winning.
The fifth nice should go to Foncasta. as
he has only Mary Candlemas to beat.
He trimmed her last time they hooked
up and there is no reason why he should
r.ot do so again. There should be a
scramble for show money, as Rip Rap,
Meddling Daisy and Ester B figure close.
Rip Rap should get it. The others <?n
--tered will only be in the way.
Split of Fifth
The sixth race Is a split of the fifth,
and should furnish a good keen contest
between Elie. Fastoso. Henry O and Hi
Caul Cap, I'll' 1 ran sucii & grand race on
Monday, where he was with the leader

and will be hard to beat for place.
Henry O will be bang up all the way ami
It would be no surprise to 3ee him beat

at this route, for he is good right now.
Belarlui won his la«t race ao easily
when he beat a fair lot that there is no

for him to be the one that should win.
