The xeriment Triad on G at
Winner at a tlui red to On. Some Inside Faote About One of the Great Tu . Eivente. A Rank Outelder fets Under the Wire First and the Jookey Escapes With flIs "Battery." Next to winning a fortune at playing the races, the ordinary "regulal" at the winter race-tracks takes more pleasure in finding out the details of how he come to lose his origlnol investment than anything else on earth, says the New York correspondent of the St. Louis Republic. To him the inside facts of a "job" are as a cup of water to a tamished native of the desert. Theveterans at Guttenburg have been talking about one of.these "jobs" by which they were muloted out of thousands of dollars for several days. The case in point is that of the horse Gyda, who won at the hilltop track on Thursday last, with the odds of 100 to one against him. Underlying the winning of' Gyda is a story that reads like fiction. To appreciate, the circumetencas thoroughly a little bit of an cient but interesting history is necessary. One evening during the past sunimer in one of the fashionable club houses near the Gloucester rase-track, frequented by the horsemen then at the track, sat a number of trainers and jockeys. Between the clicks of the ivories and the whir of the roulette wheels they told stories of strange experi ences on the "turf." Among the number was a Canadian jockey, at present attached to a stable at Gloucester. He relates that some two yeats previously he wns in the employ of a gentleman at Prescott, Ont., who raced horses for amusement at the county fairs near his home. He had a mare who could give pounds away to Barrister or to the picturesque King Idle as a sulker. One day a man who was a cross between an electrician and a lightning-rod agent vis ited the city and became acquainted with some of the peculiarities of the mare. ike suggested a remedy. It was that an electric battery be applied to the animal. How to do it so as to have it effectual in a race was a problem, but it was one that the stranger soon solved. He had robber leggings made, and encasing his legs in them, took an electric battery and placed it in what the jockey who related the story described somewhat inelegantly as "the bosom of his trouasers." From this battery a wire ran down each leg to the heel and formed a spur. The stranger mounted the mare and the appliance of electricity not only effectually cured the mare of sulking, but had a wonderful effect in developing her speed. The trainers smiled and the other jockeys laughed, but there were two men in the room who did not. A few days afterward they approached this jockey and learned all he knew of it. They agreed to for nish an apparatus if h$ would ride, and offered to buy the old horse Panama, then at Gloucester, on which to make the ex periment. The jockey declined. Then an other jockey was approached, and with more success. They induced young Nate Hill, who was riding at the time Dan Honig, and he consented to test the affair. He was a light boy, however, and objected to a heavy-headed horse like Panama. The three looked audnud, and finally they agreed to purchase Grafton, one of the rustiest "skates" in sight. He was pur chased and entered in a race. Young Hill, with the little battery in the seat of his pants and the charged wires for spuar, got on him. The ring laid all sorts of fancy prices against his chances. The books begged for the money at 70 and 80 to 1. The horse got off well and won in a can ter, the three enterprising tricksters land ing some $20,000 on him. That was the beginning of Jockey Hill's misfortunes at Gloucester. He was not ruled off, but be was ordered away from the track through the influence of the ruling clique, who were sore because they had not been let in on the "good thing." Hill refused to give any explanation at the time, and has not since done so. Since then the men who worked the scheme have been looking anxiously for an other opportunity, and they found it in (iyda. If there ever was a horse that de served to be relegated to the ranks it is Gyda. An ordinary streetcar horse could give him a start of a half-mile and beat him in a mile race. A young jockey named Mooney was selected to ride Gyda. He was scared at first of the battery, but Nate Hill tested it before him on a horse on Wednes day evening and Mooney consented to try it. Gyda was entered in a race for Tues day last, but was scratched, Bill Brien, his owner, giving as an excuse thathe had been run into and injured by an ice wagon. On Thursday Gyda was entered again and this time she started. Mooney was kept under cover all Wednesday night and up to the time the bugle called the horses to the poet for the first race on Thursday. for fear he would give the snap away. He trembled like a leaf as he took his mount, but no body paid any particular attention to it at the time. Down in the betting ring the bookmakers laid odds of 100 to one against Gyda's chance of winning. The three men who worked the scheme played the horse very. judiciously and without arousing suspicion. Their tickets called for some $15,000 when they had made the rounds of the ring. When Mr. Csldwell drdpped the flag they stood at the head of the stretch and watehed the race anxiously. Gyda shot out of her field like a thunderbolt. At the quarter she was two lengths in the lead of her field and going like a rejuvenated steam engine. The favorites were "laying away" waiting for her to tire. Young Mooney sat perfectly still in his saddle. As they swung into the stretch and the really best horses in the race began to move up, he.touched Gyda up with his electric spursrand the old horse bounded away to victory like a can non ball. Down the home stretch she came, with the others vainly endeavoring to catch her. It was no use. The rank outsider flashed by the wire a winner by two good lengths, and Mooney, the jockey, managed to weigh out without being de teoted. And this is how Gyda won at 100 to one. The story illustrates the quality of the racing on the hill. Exoarsion Sates to Oallfornia.
