Roamer Breaks World's Record
In Handicap at Laurel Track
Andrew Miller's Gelding Is Three-year-old Champion by Covering Mile and One-fnrlong
Race Before Large Crowd in 1:493-5 Tartar Polls Up
in Second Position.
Laurel. Md.. Oct 10. If there Is any
doubt In the mind of the racing public
aa to who Is the champion three-year-old
of America, It waa dispelled this after
noon at Laurel Park, when Andrew Mil
lers gelding, Roamer, broke the world's
record in the Washington Handicap at
a mile and. a furlong. He ran the distance
In 1.49 X-5 for the mile and the furlong
and covered the first mile In 1:36 3-S.
Today he met August Belmont's Strom
boll at equal weights. The Miller horse's
defeat In the Baltimore Handicap by
Stromboll, when he gave tha Belmont
horse seven pounds the best of the
weights did not keep tho public from
backing Roamer.
Roamer outran his field from the drop
of the barrier and he showed brilliant
speed the entire distance and held his
Held safe at all stages of the contest Tar
tar ran a remarkable race and was only
beaten off a length and a half. He moved
up on the outside, rounding the far turn.
and .made a game effort to catch theJ
leader, but without avail. Buskin closed
a big gap and was going strong at the
close. Stromboll ran a dull race In com
parison with his previous efforts. Gainer,
from the Greentree stables, who had a
large following, could never Improve his
position. '
The, world's record waa previously held
by Vox Populi. a four-year-old, who. In
1908. carrying 110 pounds, covered the dis
tance in 1.50 fiat at Santa Anita Park,
CaL According' to the scale of weights.
Roamer today carried 13 pounds.
Orowoc'a Jockey Game.
In the second number on the program
a remarkanle piece or gameness was
shown by Tansey, who Had the mount of
Orowoc Orowoo lost his rider at the
sixth fence and. after being dragged for
a sixteenth of a mile, he waa remounted
and finished fourth. Shannon River,
with Allen In the saddle, defeated Syos
sett the favorite, by five lengths, who In
tum beat Garter fifty lengths.
A nasty Jam occurred In the opening
event when Harry Junior cut across the
Held and as a result Double Eagle and
Surgeon lost their riders. Burllngame,
who had the mount on Double Eagle, was
thrown heavily to the ground and suf
fered severe Injuries. He "probably will
not be seen In the saddle for some time.
Steward, who rode Surgeon, escaped with
a. few scratches. Harry Junior waa In
hand all tha way and. could have won
Lmuch easier. Archer King was third.
The third contest saw a. rattling good
finish between .Carroll Reld and Noble
Grande, the former outgamlng the latter
and winning by a length; Charles F.
Grainger 'waa third.
"Wlxard;' Bed well slipped another good
thing over today when. In the fifth event

remainder of the meeting.
The winning of some long-priced horses
every day of the meeting haa come to be
expected. This all goes to make the

Its fellows unless it possesses superior
mental power. These qualities must
work In harmony with nerve centers,
lungs, heart, kidneys, legs, tendons and
feet and then must be of the highest
order. The other elements that enter

A firm stand against Uw violators has
been taken by the Maryland Motorcycle
Club of Baltimore. "The few reckless
drivers," declares the club officials, "can
do more Injury to the sport than the vast
majority ot careful motorcyclists can
overcome In many months." The Mary
land Club haa. therefore, offered to co
operate with the authorities In every pos
sible way In apprehending the speeder
and careless driver

Strange to say there is nothing compel
ling In them, noihing extraordinary about
tEem, nothing ultra fashionable about
ulern as compared wlth those of repre
sentatives of other families that have
not achieved such superlative greatness.
When we use the term -lasnwnaow.
we mean on the side of his sire- Peter
the Great has made himself fashionable
through the performances of his sons
and daughters. One generation back of
Peter the Great Is Pilot Medium and
SantosT by GrauM Sentinel an back or
Pilot Medium we And Happy Medium and
Tacky, by Plot Jr. FarberJ back than
one generation ' in the female line of
Peter the Great we And very little worth
the reckoning.
If we leave out Peter the Great and
Nancy Hanks, the first a grandson of,,
Happy Medium. an8 Nancy Hanks, a
daughter of Happy Medium, we find
nothing else in the Happy Medium fam
ily of champion atte, Shadow, dam of
Santos, was a daughter of Octoroon, by f
Comet and swauow, Dy woe xiooer
Neither Shadow nor Octoroon figure In
the pedigree of other great trotters, and
Joe Hooker seldom. But when we In
spect the blood lines of Volo's maternal
ancestors wo discover something more
Inspiring. Nervolo Belle, bis dam. Is a

Grantinv to the Happy Medium Pilot
Jr. Volunteer strains all that la due them
the careful analyslst Is, we think. In
clined to award the larger part of Peter
Volo's superlative eminence as a "horse
above ordnances' to his maternal ances
tors. Every little of good blood that a
horse carries In his pedigree, added to
what he draws from other sources, makes
a little bit more and adds to his sum of
greatness. But In a final analysis, such
as we have attempted, the "female of
the species" In Peter Volo's pedigree must
be granted the larger share toward mak
hlm, what he ls- "horse above ord
nances" and the foremost equine figure
among twentieth century trotters.
