TO MEET PATRICE
Filly Has Been Worse Than
Second Only Once in
By the Associated Press.
TROPICAL PARK, Fla., April 2 —
Mrs. Ethel D. Jacobs' Sweet Patrice,
acknowledged queen of the 2-year-old
fillies in training here, raced to her
fourth straight victory in the Viscaya
Purse, chief juvenile event of the
meeting which had its next-to-last
Saturday program this afternoon. The
machine-like brown daughter of Hal
cyon, under 119 pounds, gave weight
and a thorough trouncing to eight
others while scoring by three lengths
under Eddie Arcaro.
Townsend B. Martin's Throttle
Wide, the second choice, was second
by four lengths, while W. H. Gal
lagher's Kate Smith easily defeated
Handiboy for the show position.
About 10.000 fans saw Sweet Patrice,
a filly that apparently thrives on rac
ing, complete the half-mile trip in
0.47 3-5. She was a $3 30-for-$2
Unbeaten at Tropical.
At this early stage of her career.
Sweet Patrice has been sent postward
11 times. She has won five races, her
last four at this track, where she re
mains unbeaten. She has been worse
than second on only one occasion, and
then she finished third.
Sweet Patrice was off flying. She
quickly drew clear of the field as they
sailed around the first turn, with
Throttle Wide holding down second
position by a wide margin over Kate
Smith. The running order of the
first five horses never changed.

STRAIGHT, PL ACT&SHW
Regardless of the outcome of the
Nation-wide vote on the relative merits
of the stall gate and barrier systems
of starting, general reforms will be
sponsored by Chairman Herbert Bay
ard Swope's "Committee on Starting,"
which was formed recently by Edwin
J. Brown, president of the National
Association of State Racing Commis
Mr. Swope says, “Regardless of the
outcome of the poll, which is now
being conducted throughout the Na
tion with horsemen, breeders, news
paper men and others interested in the
thoroughbred sport being asked to
state their opinion, I wish to go on ]
record at this time in stating that the
committee definitely will sponsor cer- j
tain reforms which will be of benefit 1
to the racing public and horsemen, no :
matter whether the stall gate is further
indorsed or the barrier system adopted.
"We will work for uniformity
on two points in particular in all
States where lacing is con
"These are: 1. Total abolishment
of all mechanical devices or tools used
by assistant starters, such as twitch,
tongs, nose rope and lip strap, unless
requested in writing by the owner. !
2. No horse to be handled by the as- j
slstant starters, unless directed by the
starter, and not then if so requested
by the owner. These regulations are
incorporated in our New York racing
and we have found them very satis
It is a curious fact, that while the
stall gate is entrenched strongly in
favor in America, this country is the
only one using this system. The tabu
lation of votes on the stall gate and
the barrier will not take place until
after April 15. Early unofficial re
turns Indicate a spirited line-up of
supporters for both starting systems.
While on the subject of starting
horses, we recently received a letter
from W. H. Duggan of Chicago, 111.,
relative to the starting problem.
Mr. Duggan says: “After 11 years
of experimenting I have perfected
a simple, practical method for
starting horses by combining the
advantageous features of the stall
gate and walk-up start.”
Mr. Duggan claims 12 distinct fea
tures for his method of starting, and
we are going to give them to you ex
actly as he lists them.
1. Sixe of field limited only by
width of track.
2. Each horse may be started
from assigned post position, re
gardless of characteristics.
3. All horses protected while at
Selections for slow track at Botvie tomorrow.
BEST BETT—MY ELSIE.
FIRST RAC E—APPREHEND,
ACAUTAW, SIR TEN.
APPREHEND, which campaigned
with fair success at Santa Anita,
comes from a stable of fit horses
and probably will take down the
chief honors. ACAUTAW ntns his
best races over this course and is
accorded the place. SIR TEN, on
his showings at the Fair Grounds,
must be considered a stout factor.
SECOND RACE—PROWL, FREE
RIDE, CAN BLOOM.
PROWL, but for the fact that he
was tardy leaving the post in his
first try at this course, probably
would have been the winner. He
is accorded another chance. FREE
RIDE has early speed and is the
one to beat in the stretch. CAN
BLOOM has been carefully pre
pared for her seasonal bow. *
THIRD RACE—MY F.LSIE, BAR
TERING KATE, CHANCING.
MY ELSIE turned back a for
midable field in her last race at
Hialeah Park and the Shandon
Farm miss needs only to retain
that form to take the measure of
this band. BARTERING KATE
flashed a bit of early speed here
the opening day and appears sec
ond best. CHANCING has a slight
edge for the show.
FOURTH RACE—HIGH BLAME,
JACAM, MY PORTER.
HIGH BLAME is in capable
hands and is expected to run his
best race today. With the educa
tion obtained in some smart per
formances in Florida this past win
ter he should easily down these
youngsters. JACAM has some
smart moves in the speed book and
may take the place. MY PORTER
may scrape into the picture.
FIFTH RACE—FLYING WILD,
' JACQUELINE M, GHOST
FLYING WILD, in the light of
the showings she made at the Fair
Grounds, is given first call here.
Usually alert at the barrier, she
may break in front and lead all the
way. JACQUELINE M has raced
with a better grade and appears
the strongest contender. GHOST
QUEEN has an edge on the others.
SIXTH RACE—ADVOCATE JR.,
TULEYRIES STAR, OLD
ADVOCAn JR. has bean or ttaa
sidelines all winter, but is reported
fit and ready for the question.
Gifted with plenty of early speed,
he should take command at once
and retain his advantage to the
end. TULEYRIES STAR was a
shifty sort at Oaklawn and will
make a strong bid. OLD FIELD
for the show.
SEVENTH RACE—AIRLAP. MOR
RIS GRINER. CHATTERDOO.
AIRLAP had Just about come
into his own at the close of Hia
leah Park and if he still retains
that form he will have little trou
ble in registering a victory here.
MORRIS GRINER, on his New
Orleans races, is accorded the place
award. CHATTERDOO should be
up in time for the minor award.
——■ «— I
4. All horses moving when bar
rier is sprung.
5. Public assured horses are In
alignment when barrier is sprung,
no matter what the angle.
6. Practically nothing above the
fence to obstruct the view of horses
or odds board.
7. Necessity for use of “twitch”
8. No horse ever left at post.
Long delays avoided.
8. Barrier safest ever used—trav
els horizontally and vertically.
10. Nothing touches the track or
nothing above the horses, yet re
tains in effect the “partition” fea
11. Start fascinating to watch
and in keeping with the sport.
12. Prevents perspiring horses
from cooling out while standing at
post on chilly days.
Mr. Duggan asks for an oppor
tunity to prove what he claims, and we
are writing him for detailed descrip
tion and drawings of his method.
He predicts that you will be astound
ed at the simplicity and efficiency
of his device. As soon as we receive
these drawings we will discuss the
merits of Mr. Duggan's starting sys
tem in this column. If it is only half
as good as claimed, Maryland tracks
would do well to install it without

Mrs. Frederick H. Prince this after

of all others, but had lost his partner
far back in the ruck and the race was
won by Mildred Gaines and Mrs.

finish as a pair.
Both the races were run over a
beautiful course of timber, stone
walls, chicken coops and other ob
