Twenty-fiv-> thousand r>eople saw the. last Say's
racing at Brighton Beach, where Hyphen beat
Major DaingerfieM in the Brighton Derby In one of
the most remarkable races, from two points of
view, at the distance, ever run by three-year-olds.
They also saw Julius Fleischmann'a India colt win
the Brighton Junior Stakes from a field of six two
year-»lo>. after a rather disgraceful performance
on the part of James R. Keene/s Dalesman. The
leather was perfect and the track lightning fast.
'■while the vast outpouring of thousands who found
their way to the seaside track formed a renewed
teftimonlal to the growing popularity of the thor
Of cour.«e. the chief magnet of the day was the
.l!<c Ftake for the three-year-olds, and doubtless half
,'those present were drawn by the fact that Major
s)alngerfield, the winner of the Brooklyn Derby, the
Tidal Stakes and the Realization, and the. colt that
Jiad bsen hailed, somewhat prematurely, It appears.
as the three-year-old of the season, was to meet
In Hyphen a colt that had recently shown phenom
enal speed. Major Daineern>ld> victories had
■Faddled him with stake weight, 126 pounds, while
iHyphen got in at 111. Green B. Morris withdrew
Old England, thinking that the conditions de
ir.an<3ed too much of the Goldfinch gelding, and de
■pended upon Homestead to bring his colors home
There was a great concourse of admiring critics
Jn the paddock when the three colts were saddled
and all the candidates were pronounced fit to run
the races of their lives. Peter Wirnmer. who trains
hyphen, was calmly confident and advised his
friends to back the son of Himyar. while General
2>lcLewee expressed the opinion that Major Dain
■jrerfleld could do all that was asked of him. There
may be some regret that it had been thought fit
to give Shaw the mount, for Major Daingerfleld
is a sluggish colt, who requires a thorough rous
ing in order to run his best, as anybody will re
member who recalls the way Odom had to drive
2iira out In the Realization. Homestead was not al
lowed much of a chance, and was at 7 and 8 to 1.
Dalngerfield's brilliant victories were so vividly
remembered that he rvas always a favorite,
font. went tip slightly and closed at even money,
iHyphen being heavily played at 13 to 10. Hyphen
Ss a son of Himyar. now twenty-five years old and
the sire of Domino, and appears to have filled
out perceptibly since the day he ran Old Eng
land to a head at Gravesend. At any rate, he was
in fine fettle yesterday, while Major Daingerfleld
■warmed up easily amid a ripple of applause from
.his admirers, who hoped he would put the finish
ing t.->uch upon his season of uninterrupted vic
tory by crushinp the claims of the latest espirant
!to the premier three-year-old honors.
There was the briefest possible delay at the post,
HyDhen on the rail. Major In the middle of the
track and Homestead on the outside, and then
Mr. Fitsgerald sprung the barrier, and the three
leaped off together on their journey.
Hyphen was quickest on his feet, and In a twink
ling had assumed the lead, with the Major at his
saddle girth and Homestead a length back, tugging
Jackson out of the saddle. Like this they ran
around the first turn, but wher. straightened out
Hyphen's lead was a clear length and the crowd
roared as they saw open dayiight between the two.
But Shaw began to ride his mount, and in the
next sixteenth" the black colt had drawn up 6O that
Jie was well lapped upon the flying Hyphen. Then
k : ',(■ backers of the favorite began to say to tnem
il eelves: "I told you so. There's nothing to It."
y'M But Odom had not yet extended his mount, ana
ir when he heard 'ht clattering hoofs of the Major
drawing up on the outside he called on Hyphen tor
the flrst time, and as the fleet son of Himyar re
sponded a roar went up from the crowd that

be was four lengths ahead at the top of the
Ftretch, and wh«=.n tiie wire was reached he had made
It five, Shaw having eased his mount a bit when
he saw the innr»! was beyond his reach. Home
ctead was beat-r. off fifteen lengths.
There were cheers for the winner when he trottea
t>ack to *f irh in. and cheers when the time, 2:04 l-o.
-was hung out. This Tvas only two-fifths of a second

General McLewee. part owner of Major Dainger

eight youngsters were named to co. Mr. Keene"s
trainer withdrew Whitechapel. winner of the sec
ond part of the Double Event, but as he added
Prediction (Heaven knows why!> there was no
alteration in the number of starters. Dalesman
■was loader! up with 127 pounds, and as Hurstbourne
Kot in with 112 pounds the talent could not see
Jiow he could lose, and backed him into the position
of an odds-on first choice, as If the numbers had
already Kcr>c >.ip. The Keene pair were second in
favor, "at threes. 2.
While the wise ones couM not see hotr Hurst
boume could lose, lose he nearly lie Martin be
ing under suspension, Hedfern had the mount, and
he waited too long. Hurstbourne broke in front.
but Odojn raced Illue Ribbon by him, and fnnn
had a clea" lead of two lengths. When Redfern
began to ride In good earnest he did not pick tip
crotmd as rapldlv as he had expected, and the Plr
JMxon colt still had a pood icad cirr-itic Into the
stretch. He began to «tnp about this time, and
as Odom felt him dyinß he went to the "bat."
Hurstbourne. hard ridden with hand and heel, but
not with whip, got up on the outside barely in
. time to win by a short head, right under the guns.
The Keene pair made a melancholy exhibition.
Prediction finished next to last, and Dalesman,
ridden by Shaw, absolutely last. Shaw, one of
the htrhejrt salaried Jnckeys in the world, is riding
like an apprentice nowaday*.
■ Artvis, who ran well at Gravesend ani Sheeps
he«a Bay. was severely kicked by Dalesman while
the field was at the post, or he might have carried
his 125 pounds nearer the winner than fifth place.
Kurstbourne'a share of the stake was $7,750.
Shaw rode a race on Mount Hope, the favorite
for the last race, that won him a round of hisses
and should cost him a month's suspension. After
securing a commanding lead and making a runa
way race of 't to the last sixteenth pole, he went
to sleep, took it for granted that he had the race
•won. and rever made a move to stard off Bis
marck's challenge when the iatt>T. closing with -a ■
strong rush, snatched the race from the favorite
by the ehortest of heads. If this be not a case for
Its employment, it is hard to see why the rod is
placed in the hands of the stewards.
Three boys got a bad tumble in the sixth race,
•which was won by Lord Badge, at 5 to 1. As the

Williams were not hurt, but McFadden, who rode
Princess H.. was severely hurt about the head and
taken to the Emergency Hospital.
From the Coney Island Emergency Hospital Mc-
Kadden was taken to St. Mary's Hospital It was
■aid there last night that lie was suffering from a
shock and a broken jaw. He will be able to be out
Tin a week.
David Gideons highly bred colt Sovereign, by
■ His Highness— Nettle, proved in the first race that
he is a racer of quality. He ran green on his flrst
Mart of some days ago. but yesterday he knew
what he was about, seized the lead from Mount
Klsco a few lengths beyond the barrier, and held it
to the end. winning «n a m!!d drive by a length In
fair time. This colt looks like a good one. and ran
like one. He will bear watching, and is lik.lv to
pet it. Rosetint was scratched from this race or
*-he might have given the winner a chance to show
Just how £r.od he is.
There was more foul riding in the second race
and Michaels was the offender this time, He rode
Atheola, and was po much in a hurry to get to the
front that he cut across too close to the leaders at
th* flrst turn The stewards made a note of th«
©fTcnce. called him to account after the race and
disqualifled hlb mount, which finished third, advanc
ing Justice to that position. "Wonderly rated Lu
cent along In a comfortable spot until he got
ready to make his run. and then shot to the fore
as If the field were anchored, leading Khitai by
ihree lengths at the wire. It was a poor lot, and
the race nru run In slow lime.
The annual "klUlnc" on Songster went through In
the highweight handicap. The gelding was backed
down to 2 to 1, and won quite comfortably after
•Demurrer, wi-h Spencer up. had led most of the

The meeting of the Brighton Beach Racing As
sociation, which came to an end with the races
yesterday afternoon st Brighton Beach, has been a
great help to many horsemen, as nearly one hun
dred and forty owners shared In the division cf the
purses. The stables of J. K. & F. P. Keene, F. C
McLewee & Co. and Green B. Morris obtained the
bulk of the money, and the question of which
would be first and second on the Jist was not settled
until the Brighton Junior and Brighton Derby
stakes had been decided, as Mr. Morris had entries
in both stakes, while the Keenes were represented
in the Brighton Junior and General McLewee in the
Derby. Most of the money won by General Mc-
Lewe'e was earned by Gold Heels's victories in th«
Brighton Handicap and the Brighton (.'up, while
Homestead. Old England. Gravina and Gold Van
did the bulk of the work for the Morris stable. The
Keene's best breadwinner was the two-year-old
Hurst Park, although Port Royal, Orloff. Injunction
and a few others contributed. F. C. McLewee &
Co. went to the front when Major DalngerfieM
finished second In the Derby. The winnings of Mc-
Lewee & Co. were J13.C95. those of Mr. Morris $1".,205
and J. R. &- F. P. Keene's $11,630. Those who won

Hartford. Conn. t Aug. 2.— An incident to-day
marred what was expected would prove to be the
greatest trotting event in turf history. In the
third h^at of the $90,000 match race between
Lord Derby, owned by E. E. Smathers. of New-
York, and Boralma. of which Thomas W. Law
sort, of Boston, IP the owner, the latter horse sus
tained an injury which caused him to be drawn,
and the race was given to Lord Derby. The result
was a bitter disappointment not only to the
owner of the Boston horse, but to the general
public, which, to the number of fifteen thousand,
assembled at Charter Oak Park. The Injury to
Boralma is such that he will probably be pre
vented from racing for some time to come. In
scoring tho Boston horse gashed the quarter of
his nigh fore leg badly, and was unable to start
in the fourth heat.
The "day was perfect for racing. A light breeze
prevailed, but it was not strong enough to inter
fere with the speed of the horses. The track was
in splendid shape, and everything was favorable
"Who defeated Boralma y<»wtprday.
to record breaking time. Horseman from all
over the country were oti band to witness the
contest. Among those who ocrupled boxes were
W. C. Whitney and B. F. Tracy, both former
Secretaries of the Navy, and Arnold Lawson. of
Boston, a son of Boralma's owner, was seated in
a box beside John Roach, the representative of
Thomas W. Lawson.
Lord Derby w;u? a hot favorite in the betting.
Just hofore the first heat odds of two to one
were freely offered on him. When Bnralma
won the first heat the odds were even, and at
the close of the second heat, which was won by
Lord Derby, they shifted decidedly in favor of
the latter.
The judges wore C. R. S. Billings, of Chicago;
R. E. Perrin. of Buffalo, and ex- Mayor Harbi
son of Hartford. Frank B. Walker, of Xew-
Tork. acted as starrer.
The racers came on the track shortly after 3
o'clock. Lord Derby, with Geers behind him. be
ing the first to appear, and was greeted with
loud applause. Poralma followed about a min
ute later, and the cheering which marked his
appearance showed that he was the favorite
with the crowd. Geers won the toss for position
and chose the pole.
After scoring three times, durlnjr which Manh
showed a disposition to hold back Lord Derby,
Starter Walkftr gave the word to go. The Bos
ton horse outstepped Lord Derby from the start.
He took possession of the pole at the first turn
and held It all the way. The horses were about
a length apart until the home stretch was
reached. As they came toward the wire Lord
Derby swerved and broke, and Boralma came
under the wire four lengths ahead In 2:OS. Loud
cheering marked the finish of the heat.
As the horses came to the track for the second
heat Geers expressed confidence that Lord Der
by would win. The horses got off promptly, and
Boralma led until the distance pole wan passed.
Then Lord Derßy drew up and shot by Boralma.
The Boston horse followed gamely and rallied,
but the rally was followed by a break, and he
crossed the wire two lengths behind Lord Der
by, in this heat Boralma showed signs of lame
ness. Time. 2:O0&
In the third heat Boralma once more took the
lead at the start, but his advantage waa short
lived. He broke at the first turn, and again at
the "stretch. As t.he racers came toward the
wire it was plainly evident that something seri
ous had happened to Boralma, for he went to
pieces, and Geers pulled Lord Derby In order
not to distance his unlucky rival, and allowed
Boralma to come within a length of him at the
wire. Time, 2:18&
As soon as the heat was over the announcer
called for a veterinary surgeon. Dr. Q, H. Le<\
of Boston, responded, and found that Boralma
had been bo badly Injured that he could race do
more to-day. Consequently, with the consent of
the Judges, he was drawn. In order to fulfil
the requirements of the match Lord Derhy
■ trotted the next heat alone, and was then award
ed the victory. After the last heat had been
trotted Lord Derby, accompanied by a ruiiner,
trotted an exhibition mile in 2:08.
After the accident Boralma wnn taken to
his quarters, and I»r. Lee sei to work on the
Injured animal. n<- told a representative of
The Associated Press that the wound was the
result of the hrlrse overreaching, and that the
gaph cut in the leg was four Inches in l<-npth.
He was unable to say if the horse had been
permanently injured.
T. D. Marsh, whn drove Boralma, said that
he was unable to tell just when the accident
occurred, hut was of the opinion that it oc
curred at the three-quarter pole John Roach,
Mr. Lawson's representative, said that tho in
jury to Boralma would undoubtedly prevent the
race between the Boston horse and The Abbot
at Charter Oak Park on August .'{(>. The Law
son contingent was? deeply disappointed, and
said that Boralma would have won had he not
been injured.
In addition to the bi« match there were
three other events on the card. The 2:<iO pace
brought out only three starters. Joe I'olnter
won two out of three heats, with Sphinx S.
second and Diavok) third.
The 2:11 pac« was won by Don Derby in
straight heats, with Annie Leyburn second and
Onoto third. Both races were featureless, with
the exception that Joe Pointer was set back
in the second he;. t for blocking Sphinx S. Don
Derby's victory was won in hollow fashion.
The 2:14 trot was taken by The King: in
straight heats.
Columbus. Ohio. Aug. 2.— The feature of the clos
ing day of the Grand Circuit trotting was the
successful attempt of the undefeated pacing
stallion Dan Patch to beat the record of his famous
sire, Joe Patchen. 2:OUi. Driven by his trainer.
Myron McHenry, ihe handsome brown horse cir
cled the track in 2:00%. half a second faster than
his sire's record. The quarters were as follows:
0:31, 0:29, 0:30V4, and 0:30^- The hoise finished pulled
up. and there is m> question that he could have
made the mile in two minutes flat, or even faster,
if McHenry had driven him out in the last quarter.
The track was lightning fast, and the weather
was calm, when McHenry brought the great stall
ion out for the trial. He scored down once, and
the next time was sent away, accompanied by a
runner. The first quarter around the turn was
paced in 31 seconds. Wh»n he turned into tho
backatretch McHenry let him fly, and the half was
reached in one minute flat. The third quarter,
around the upper turn, was paced in l:3o'i, and the
horse was going so easily when lie straightened
away for the wire that it was evident that he
could not fall to break the record.
About fifty yards from the wire McHenry began
to pull Dan Patch, and succeeded in partially stop
ping him before the mile was finished. McHenry
made the following statement after the trial:
"My intention was to drive Patch a mile close to
'•Olli but not quite reaching that mark, thus
escaping the penalty of the record and leaving the
horse in the 2:04 class. He was so good, however,
and paced so easily that we made fester time than
I intended. When I saw that he was certain to
beat old Jo»'8 mark, I tried to stop him. but could
not Blow him up In time, I am sorry now that I
did not drive him out, for I am sure that he could
have come the last quarter in 23 seconds or better.
I equalling or lowering- Star Pointer's record of I:s9**.
He will do it before the season Is over,"'
The races were tame and uninteresting, the only
redeeming: feature being Roamtr's victory In the 2:11
race, in the second heat of *hich reduced his
record to 2:05^4- Summary: _."•-.

teams had an unusually close contest, which event

As was to be expected when the champions and
leaders in the pennant race met the tail enders in
the same class, the leaders outplayed their less
fortunate opponents at every point and won easily.
This is the real story of the game at the Polo
Grounds yesterday, when the Plttsburg and New-
York teams crossed bats. There was a big: out
pouring of enthusiasts, who are supporting the
erratic and unsuccessful local management right
royally, hoping against hope that this borough will
at some time get a little first class baseball. Pltts
burg fielded In splendid form and hit the two New-
York pitchers freely. The general work of the
visitors illustrated that the men from Pittshurg
are entitled to run away with the league champion
ship. The team is in a class by itself, as was
pointed out In these columns before the season
opened. «•-__.
The Pittshurg men started in on Taylor s assort
ment of curves right at the beginning, with the re
sult that Mr. Taylor was sent to the bench before
the flrst inning had been played out. Cronin, who
relieved him, did not fare much better. Doheny,
the released New-York pitcher, had considerable
amusement with his old comrades by pitching a
fine game. The home players could do nothing with
his curves until the eighth inning, when a few hits
enabled them to score two runs and escape a shut
Pittsburg did not wait, but took a lead of three
runs in the opening inning. Clarke led off with a
safe drive to left field, and Beaumont sacrificed his
captain to second. Leach hit to left Held and Clarke
scored. As Jones's throw was wild. Leach kept on
to third. Wagner hit to Lauder. who threw home
to catch Leach, but Bowerman made a dismal muff
and Leach scored. Wagner going to second. Brans
field tallied Wagner with a hit to centre.
Pittsburg scored three more runs in the fourth
Inning, cinching the game before it was half over.
Conroy hit safely to centre and Smith did the same
thing. Doheny's out advanced each runner a base,
flarke brought both home with a hit to centre.
Clarke then stole second and Leach hit safely. On
Wagner's two bagger Clarke scored.
Pittsburg made another run in the sixth inning.
Clarke hit for two bases fo left, and Beaumont
bunted safely. Leach's out to Wall enabled Clarke
to tally. The home players made their only rally
In the eighth Inning. Wall hit safely, and Jones did
likewise. A wild pitch advanced each a base. Mc-
Graw was sent to first on called halls, filling the
bases. McGann hit to right, scoring Wall and Jones.

forces against his old comrades. Kelley showed a

Brooklyn last year, and the Cincinnati team won
the game after a close and exciting struggle. Both
teams fielded superbly, the visitors winning through
superior hitting. Newton pitched a fair game, but
