DANDELION'S -HANDICAP.
■j XEIV TRACK RECORD.
fitg "Attendance at Spa on Opening
Day Sees Spirited Contests.
[By TMesraua to The Tribune. ]
Saratoga, K. V.. Aug. C— Dandelion and Tan
gle, running In the name and colors of Francis
H . Hitchcock, ran one, two in the rich Saratoga
Handicap here to-day, while between 12.000 and
15.000 persons cheered and shouted as If each
cr .e had profited by the victory. It was a signal
triumph for the president of the Saratoga Rac
fgg Association, who had a double pleasure In
jeeing his colors so prominent in one of the most
coveted fixtures of the season, and In the reali
sation of the hopes of himself and his associates
for the success of the opening day of a meet
|pg which promises to eclipse all others since
(fee sport was revived here six years ago. N>xt
to Francis R. Hitchcock. James It. Keene and
Charles Pflzer shared the honors of the day a*
peter Pan won the Flash Stakes of $0,000 for
the vice-chairman of the Jockey dub while
; 3enru!oid confirmed the good opinion he made
f at Belmont Park last spring by outrunning and
tjumplng one of the best fields which has gone
to the post in a crosscountry race this year and
. winning the Saratoga Steeplechase, worth
JUM m the blue, orange hoops on sleeves of
Jfr. Pflzer.
It was the Saratoga Racing Association's big
gest day. The grandstand, clubhouse, balcony
gsi so-called free field were crowded to their
full capacity. The regulars came up from New
Tor* to a man. but they did not make up one-
J»lf of the attendance, as the sport has grown
1 to favor to such an extent in the towns up the
•tale that persons came from Albany. Schenec
i X»Av. Amsterdam. Ballston. Troy. Cohoes and
Gless Falls in numbers, while the transient pop
ulation of Saratoga and the villagers as well
were not behind their neighbors in going to the
track to do homage to the thoroughbred.
Among the well known persons seen in the
clubhouse were August Belmont, August Bel
aont, jr.. E. R. Thomas, John A. Drake, Charles
1 0. Gate*. John Sanford. Grant Hugh Brown.
■ydney Paget. Francis R. Hitchcock. Thomas
Hitchcock, jr.. Jesse I^ewisohn and Andrew
Miller, but the individual was lost in the gen
eral throng which was on hand to see the thor
oughbreds strive for rich stakes and to make a
holiday cf the opening of the racing season in
this part of the state.
The weather was piping hot, but this was
partly offset by the cool freshness of the moun
| tain air and the smell of the pines which sur-
I round the track like a green fringe. There
I were occasional showers, too. which relieved to
| come extent the parching: heat, although they
threatened disaster to the gay but flimsy finery
| of the women. Everybody got home, however,
j fairy dry by paving double fares to the hack
! ic»ri. who did not fail to take advantage of their
| opportunities. The inclosure, looking spick and ,
epan, r.estled down among the trees, has rarely
I if ever presented a gayer or more picturesque
appearance, and as the racing was spirited and
Interesting from end to end the day was pro
' I sounced a distinct success.
The Saratoga Handicap of $10,000 was run
| as the fourth race. It was for three-year-olds
and upward, at one mile and a quarter, and
eight horses went to the post. Agile was with
| drawn, and T. J. Healey, acting for R. T. "Wil
son. jr., scratched Dolly Spanker, but added
Gallavant, while J. R. Keene also added Red
Leaf to try for the rich prize. F. R. Hitchcock
started Dandelion, which won the Invincible
Handicap at Brighton Beach , last Thursday
■fter a season of ill fortune which found him
second In the three big spring handicaps, and
tanele, his three-yeaf-«ld Meddler filly, which
I was making her first appearance of the season.
I They opened favorite -in- the betting, but went
I back to 13 to 5 in the face of a strong play on
I j E. W. Jewett's Bedouin. John A. Drake's Wes
I and the Wai deck Stable's The Picket. Bedouin
I went to the post favorite at 2 to 1. while Wes
I tad The Picket were held at 5 to 1 each. Fred

Tho start was prompt and good, end Kocrner
under: instruction*, took the lightly weighted
Gallavaat to the front to sot ■ lUHinu pace. Ho
•nowed the way past the stand the first time
»nd up the back stretch, with John Sanford's
Ravena In close attendance and • the others
trailing. Dandelion and Tangle were In a good
position, but the followers of Bedouin and The
Picket could hardly believe their eyes when
they saw the horses on which they had pinned
their faith struggling along far back In the
ruck. Rounding the far turn Ravena raced by
Gallavant and took command as If she would
come home alone, but little Tadlock had already
taken so much out of his mount that she be
gan to tire turning for home, and quickly
dropped back, beaten. Sewell then made his
move with Dandelion, while Tangle also raced
into . a contending position. When fairly
straightened out for the run to the wire Dan
delion quickly raced into a commanding lead
and came away to win by a length or so from
his stable companion. Tangle, which was only
galloping three lengths before Gallavant. Red
Leaf and The Picket had a spirited duel
for third money and finished heads apart as
named. Dandelion ran the distance in the fast
time of 2:04 2-5. which established a new track
record. The old mark was 2:05, made by Irish
Lad.
Tangle earned equal honors with Dandelion, as
it was the opinion of all who watched the race
closely that she could have won easily if Mr.
Hitchcock had not declared to win with the son
of Hamburg. Miller, who rode Tangle, had to
take her In hand in the run through the stretch
to allow Dandelion to win, and her performance
stamps her the best three-year-old filly shown
to date. Tangle started only a few times last
year, and made a good impression. She was
cut down in a race at Gravesend last fall and re
tired for the season. She is by — Hand
spun, and created much favorable comment in
the paddock before and after the race.
Ravena was badly handled, and further ran
as if short. She showed a nice turn of speed,
and is likely to run better when she goes to the
post again. The Picket did not find his feet
until the race was almost over. He closed with
a rush in the stretch, and might have been third
but for being In tight • quarters on the rail.
Bedouin ran a dull, disappointing and spiritless
race. He was always far back, and failed to
show his usual speed. He was outclassed.
Herculoid won the first running of the rich
Saratoga Steeplechase like a champion. He
went to the front at the end of a mile, and,
fencing in faultless style, won as he pleased
by several lengths from Goldfleur and Kassll.
Hylas. the strong favorite, did not Jump in his
usual bold, dashing way, and as the pace was
fast from the start he could not keep up, and
at the end was beaten off. Twelve horses went
to the post, including the two English importa
tions. Phil May and Desert Chief. It was a brill
iant spectacle, as Desert Chief was the only
horse to fall. He came a nesty cropper at the
Liverpool on thfe second turn of the field, when
running In second place. ,T. O'Brien, who had
the mount, was stunned for a few moments, but
escaped with a shaking up. It was Desert
Chiefs second start in this country. He fell in
the Whitney Memorial Steeplechase when run
ning in front. He has speed, but runs out at the
jumps and does not appear to be a safe fencer.
Kassii ran his usual honest race, and managed
to save third place from Grandpa, which closed
with a rush after clearing the last jump.
Peter Pan won the Flash Stakes for James
R. Keene in a head and head finish with Billy
Lakeland's Electioneer, while Arcite, closing
strong on the rail, was only half a length away.
Peter Pan ran a game, honest race and well
deserved the honors, although Electioneer was
probably best at the weights. The Voter colt
had to run on the outside of his field all the
way and made a wide turn into the stretch, los
ing valuable ground. He headed Peter Pan at
the last sixteenth pole, but could not hold his
advantage and was beaten by the width of a
hand on the post. Peter Pan showed rare game
ness. He was conceding- eight pounds to his
opponents, but was always in the thick of the
fray, and would not acknowledge defeat even
when defeat seemed sure. He raced Rosemount
and Golf Ball into submission In the first half
mile, and was not averse to taking up fresh bat
tle in the last sixteenth.
The other winners were Edna Jackson, Run
nels and Killiecrankle. Edna Jackson heat a
big. unwieldy field of sprinters in the first race.
Runnels galloped home with a big wager for.
John A. Drake in the fifth, and Harry Payne
Whitney's KllUecrankie was graduated from
the maidenclass in the last race, beating Alpen
marchen, Waterbury and others.
XEW-YOKK DAILY TRIBUNE. TUESDAY. AUGUST 7. 1906.
QUEEN'S CLOSE VICTORY
THE ELM IX A IS SECOND
Wins on Time Allowance in Forty-
Mile It ace Off X ixc port.
Newport. B. 1.. Aug. a— With their gmtf
spinnakers bellying: far out to port and balloon
Jib topsails to starbogpd the big schooner
yachts Elmlna and Queen, crossed the finishing
line this afternoon off Old Brenton's Reef Light
ship only 1 minute and 5 seconds apart after
a race of forty miles from New London to this
port, both having started on even terms.
Although it had bene a fair wind all the way
the race was one of the best that these two
crack racing craft have ever engaged In. Each
owner thought his boat had won until the fig
ures were made known. Then it was found that
the Queen had won on time allowance by only
10 seconds. She was allowed 1 minute and 25
seconds by the Elmlna. Close astern of these
two came the big yawls Vigilant and Sybarita.
The latter won by 7 minutes 21 seconds. Cor
nelius Vanderbilt's Rainbow was the winner in
the 70-foot class by 18 minutes 11 seconds, but
the Yankee when she was within six miles of
the finish carried away her topmast and was
then less than three minutes astern of the Rain
bow. Harry L. Maxwell, her owner, hopes to
have a new spar in place in time to sail in the
Astor Cup race, for which his boat, is entered.
F. M. Smith's sloop Effort was defeated by 3
minutes and 44 seconds by H, F. Lfppitfs Wee
tamoe, and the Humma won from the Altair
by S minutes and 10 seconds. The Humma also
won one of the Commodore's cups for the run.
the other going to the little 30-footer Neola 11,
owned by G. M. Pynchon.
The winners of the Commodore's cups in the
schooner class are Charles Smlthers's schooner
Muriel and the little Venona, owned by Robert
Olyphant. Jr.
Fog so thick that, to use the sailors' expres
sion, "you could cut It with a knife" enveloped
New London Harbor from view, soon after mid
night until nearly noon. It gave signs of clear
ing before a southwest breeze at 10 o'clock,
when the signal was made from the flagship
North Star for the fleet to get under way.
Many of those that did so were soon forced to I
anchor again on account of the fog. The pre
paratory signal was finally made from the com
mittee tug Catherine Moran; she was anchored
half a mile east of Sarah's Ledge in order to |
give the yachts a clear starting line. The dis- I
abled Fall River liner Puritan, with a broken
shaft, lay almost on the regular starting line.
Nine of the thirty-foot one-design yachts, led
by A. H. and J. W. Alkers's the Alera. began I
the forty njile race at 12:10 in a" light air from j
the southward, which gave little promise of ■
freshening at that time. The fleet started on i
the starboard tack, with sheets eased off a trifle, j
Eleven sloops crossed the line on the next signal, j
12:1?. led by Robert Emmons's the Humma. j
The Pellegrina, the Rosalie, the Doris, the
Isolde, the Atair, Mimosa 111, the Gardenia,
the Janet and the Phantom got away in
that order on this signal, all on a one gun
start. Then came the Irolita at 12:21:24, the
Effort at 12:21:46. the Weetamoe at 12:21:57.
The Neola was handicapped nine minutes and
the Hester sixteen minutes on account of the
light airs.
Parallel to the line the big yawls Vigilant and
Sybarita, less than a length apart, made a sen
sational part. Just when the Vigllanta' bow
sprit would tlear the committee boat at the
lee end of the line her skipper luffed her to
cross tt, the Sybarita luffing at the same moment
as the Vigilant. Every one watching them was
certain that the latter yacht would cross too
soon, but by good judgment her helmsman saved
her, for she was timed as crossing two seconds
after the whistle at 12:25:02; the Sybarita
crossed at 12:25:27.
Cornelius Vanderbilt's Rainbow in the weath
er berth led the Yankee over the line by 35 sec
onds.
Starting the schooners was little better than
a drifting match. They got away In this order:
The Katrina, the Venona, the Crusader, the
Simitar and the Andormeda were all handicapped
at 12:32, the Muriel's time was 12:30:31, the
Elmlna, the Queen, the Corona, the Seneca,
the Ariel and the Endymion were all handi
capped at 12:37. the latter being handicapped
some 13 minutes on account of the calm
weather; the Invader at 12:41:45, the Cachalot
at 12:41::11 and those others, all handicapped:
the Vencedor, the Lasca iU minutes) the Tekla,
the Emerald and the Idler.
Just as the leaders were approaching Race
Rock, the first turning point in the course, a
fine breeze from the southwest came to send
them flying eastward; they were timed at this
point as follows: The Humma. l:2O; the Weeta
moe. 1:26; the Isolde. 1:20:02; the Rainbow.
1:27 :2O; the Sybarita. 1:20:22; the Pellegrlna,
1:31:02; Mimosa 11, 1:31:10; the Yankee, 1:32:22;
the Elmina, 1:32:24; the Vigilant. 1:33:20; the
Queen, 1:34:30; the Rosalie, 1:34:50; the Doris.
1:35.
Travelling at a speed of more than ten knots
at times, the big schooners and sloops made fast
time to the eastward, with booms eased well oft
to port and the wind a trifle aft of the beam, so
they could carry their balloon jib topsails and
main topmast staysails.
At the whistling buoy, oft Point Judith, at 3:50
o'clock, the Elmina was the leader. The Vigilant
was next, then the Queen, the Sybarita, the
Corona, the Rainbow, the Muriel, the Weetamoe,
the Altair, the Humma. the Invader, the Effort,
the Neola and the Yankee, in that order, all car
ried spinnakers to starboard from Point Judith
to the finish. At 3:58 o'clock, three minutes after
setting hers, the Yankee carried away her top
mast. She continued on to the finish under
mainsail and headsails. The accident was
caused by the carrying away of her topmast
backstay.
Four schooners and twenty-one sloops are en
tered for the rare for the Astor cups to-day; the
sloop cup is valued at $1,000 and the schooner
cup at $500. The course will be signalled before
the start, and it will depend on the direction of
the wind. If it is from the southwest, they will
be sent to the Block Island mark, and if to the
eastward, around the Vineyard Sound and Hen
and Chickens lightships.
Sir Mortimer Durand, the British Ambassador,
and the charge d'affaires of the French Embassy
are to view the race for the King's Cup from the
deck of ex-Commodore E. T. Gerry's steam yacht
Electra.
The schooners entered for the Astor cups are
the Tavemina, the Elmina, the Queen and the
Corona.
The yawls are the Vigil and the Sybarita; the
sloops the Rainbow, the Yankee, the Weetamoe
the Effort, the Neola, the Hester, the Irolita. the
Humma, the Doris, the Isolde, the Gardenia,
the Alera, the Dahinda. the Atalr. the Neola II
the Banzai, the Minx and the Phryne.
