H. P. Whitney's Bunting
Wins Futurity by a Neck
Stands Long Hard Drive and Wears Down Lawrence
Waterbury's Galantman, Which Is Second, a
Length in Front of Dream of Allah.
To Harry Payne Whitney's hand
some bay colt Bunting, a son o* Pen
nant and Frillery, went the rich and
historic Futurity at Belmont Park yes
terday afternoon. Lawrence Water
bury*s gallant colt Galantman was
second and E. B. McLean's chestnut
filly Dream of Allah third. It was a
great contest and a great crowd saw
it decided. More than 30,000 persons
visited the course to see it run. By the
victory Mr. Whitney was enriched
|40,700. To the owner of the second
horse went $6,166 and $2,583 went to
the third. The time of the race was
1:112-5. Twenty-two horses ran.
Mr. Whitney's silks have Hashed
home in front in this turf classic be
fore, but not since his father's Bally
hoo Bey beat Olympian and Tommy
Adkins in 1900 did Mr. Whitney re
ceive such a thrill as he did yesterday.
Bunting won tho classic by a shoi t
neck, and when he stuck his nose in
front in the last few strides Mr. Whit
ney's joy was unbounded. He shrieked
and yelled as if the victory meant
everything in the world to htm. Mr.
Whitney always has been as enthusi
astic as a schoolboy when one of his
good colts or mare 1s running But yes
terday he outdid himself in a rooting
?way. While his colt was running the
last quarter of a mile and gaining
ground slowly but surely his voice,
screaming "Come on, boy!" "Ride him
hard, boy 1" could be hoard above the
shouts and shrieks of the thousands of
enthusiastic fans who surrounded him.
Friends but Rival Owners.
Standing beside him ir. the Turf <nrt j
Field Club enclosure was his old and .
most intimate friend, Lawrence Water
bury. And it was Mr. Waterbury's colt, j
Oalantman which Mr. Whitney was
"rooting" to beat. Galnntinan had more
early speed than Mr. Whitney's colt ar ' j
led the field all the way down the six
furlong course until a dozen Jumps from j
the judges. !
While Mr, Whitney was shriek.ng his
mightiest Mr. Wsterbury was calling;
nnd pleading for his colt to go faster, j
jtlla shouts were not quite as loud as
chose of Mr. Whitney, but they were
I Just as imploring. During the last
eighth of a mile, when the race waxed .
clowe. his voice quivered as he shouted,
"Keep him going, lad 1"
But the Instant Bunting's nosp poked
in front Mr. Waterbury knew it and ;
stopped "rooting." "You beat me. he ,
said to Mr. Whitney as he slapped him t
on the back. "I'm second."
When he hail spoken these few words
the race was over and the Ju^ffss h?u
placed Bunting first. Then Mr. Whit
ney turned to his pel and, Maipplng him j
on the back with his left hand, grabbed ,
his band with his right and ?hout?d:
"You came mighty close to kilting me. ?
Larry. I don't like those kind of fin- ;
lshes. It was grand, though, wasn't j
it? You must admit It, even though you
were nosed out. Your colt ran a dandy |
race. I didn't believe it was in him. !
He's a mighty nice colt, and I'm glad
you were second."
Then the two sportsmen, who have
sported together for many years, played
polo together a thousand times and .
played together at a score of games. \
?were surrounded by practically every i
person in tho Turf and Field Club. Both
were congratulated until It seemed their
hands would crack.
Congratulate Trainers.
And In their enthusiasm they didn't
forget their trainers. As soon as pos
sible both worked their way out of the ,
clubhouse and into the paddock. There
each went in quest of his trainer. .Ir.
Whitney nearly smashed Jimmy Rowes
fingers in his athletic hand and Mr. .
Waterbury showered all sorts of praise ,
on Scott Harlan for the fine race his
charge had run. ;
While Mr. Whitney was shouting and
pleading for Bunting almost all of the j
30,000 persons present were doing the
same thing. His colt, which was counted i
with Whlskaway and Mrs. I'ayne Whit- j
ney's Sedge, was the public favorite and ;
heavily supported at 9 to 5.
When Bunting returned to the sca<es ;
It seemed as If every one present gave i
him a hearty cheer. The ovation he re
ceived was a magnificent tribute to a
fast and courageous colt.
Bunting won the race because of these
qualities: He was the best horse In the
race and had tiio most courage. He
stood a herd drive for a quarter of a
mile, and if there had been the least bit
of yellow In him he would have been
beaten. Galantman ran a wonderful
race. He showed speed and gameness
too, but Bunting under an energetic ride
by Coltllettl outgamed him *t tne end.
Dream of Allah ran a hundred pounds
better than her effort here a few days
ago. She had plenty of speed and hung
on well. Surf Rider ran a winning race.
He was caught In a pocket soon after
the start and didn't get free until too
late. My Play, the full brother of Man
o War, bore out all the way and was
never a serious contender. Deadlock
ran well, and so did Harridan.
Admiring Crowd In Paddock.
Before the race It seemed as If every
one at the track was In the paddock.
Kvery one of the twenty-two contestants i
was surrounded by an admiring crowd. I
The Whitney trio. Bunting. Whlskaway !
nnd Sedge, attracted most attention, and
late comers had no chance of seeing ]
them at all. The ring around them was i
at least a -tszen deep and their admirers
rj>?de a long visit and didn't leave th*m
until the bugle called the trio to the r*ist. |
My Play, because ot his relationship j
to the immortal Man o' War, also was |
inspected minutely by an admiring and j
critical crowd. Because he isn't the :
same color as ids illustrious brother ,
few except the horsemen could sec any |
resemblance to Man o' War, and many I
turned away after the first glance nnd j
said: "He doesn't look like Man o' War ;
and I don't believe ho can run like j
him." Oalantman also received many 1
visitors. Ro did Rurf Rider and Harri
dan, which Harry F. Hlnc'alr had leased
from J. B- Madden for the event, and
there were big groups around Toll and
Column and all of the other beauties
On parade they made as beautiful a
picture as has been soen on a track this
season. Kvery one of the twenty-two
youngsters was on Ids toes and danced
past the grandstand as majestically as
any king or queen on review.
At tho barrier they weren't so nice.
I They were aa fraction. as a band of
?r,tn??fS ^"d trled to k,ck ?ach other
out of the race. After a delay that
vemed like hours Mars Casslciy lifted
te webbing and they went away to a
ood start.
Through the strongest of glasses It
ould be seen that Galantman, which
was in the centre of the track, was the
', t to ahow in front. What positions
ho others had not even the Jockeys
?r the patrol Judge knows. Looking up
die track they looked like a troop of
?avalry aligned. Rut they weren't
aligned. As they drew closer It could
be seen that Galantman, -tarrying the
vivid yellow and purple dlks of Mr.
Waterbury. was In front. At his heels
were Dream of Allah. Deadlock and
both of Mr. Whitney's representatives.
As they reachod the Turf and IMeld
Club Galantman was three parts of a
length In front of Bunting and they were
running c'.oso together about ten feet
from the rail. In the centre of the track
about & length and a half back, another
pair were fighting stride for stride. They
were Whiak&way aiul Dream of Allah.
At the final sixteenth polo Bunting
reached Galantman's throatlatch and
then. Inch by inch, he gained until he
poked his nose in front. Then he gained
rapidly and was going away at the end.
Drrsiu of Allnli FlnlNhei Stroug,
In the final drive Whtekaway died
away to almost a walk and Dream of
Allah went on and finished third, a
length In front of Surf Rider.
The time of the race didn't make a
record; neither was it the fastest six
f donga of the season. But It was real
good time and some horsemen were of
the Impression that Morvlch. Miss Joy
PI" Kal-Sang couldn't have beaten It
Although Bunting ran an exception
a ly fine race no one present proclaimed
nlm a champion or a near champion.
Ail agreed that Morvlch would have
been an easy victor If he had been
eligible to start.
Bunting s sire, Fonnant, won a Fu
turity in 1913 and thtn went on and de
veloped ito a gfreat distance runner. All
who saw Bunting fighting out the finish i
yesterday predict that he win go on, and I
it he keeps sound will be among the top- I
no^teh three-year-olds next year.

race, with Grey Lag (second. Mrs.
Fayne Whitney's Touch Me Not was
third and Harry Payne Whitney's
Damask fourth and last.
The race was a hummer from a time
standpoint. Mad Hatter took the lead
at the start, which was ragged because

went up. Once in command the son of

The raoe proved trhat both Grey lag
and Mad Hatter are wonderful horses.
W hen they finished neither was ex
miusted. But the same cou'dn't be said 1
of Touch Me Not or Damask. They ,
were literally staggering when they I
reached the Judges. So fatigued were
they that It is hardly possible they will
be able to race again this season.
Bam Hildreth wasn't pleased after
the race. Ho was peeved because Grey
Lag didn't win It Instead of Mad Hat
ter, and reprimanded Sande for not
pulling up and allowing the three-year
old to beat him home.

Philadelphia, Sept. 10.?A red letter
day for Philadelphia tennis was this
the second day of the national cham
pionship at the Germantown Cricket
Club. In the presence of the larges.
nailery that ever attended a tenni*
tournament in this city, lValla.ce I"
Johnson. Philadelphia's leading aspi
rant to the title, barring of course.
William T. Tilden 2d, the playing
! through champion, triumphed over
Now York city's leading contender,
Watson M. Washburn, in a Ave set
contest of gripping interest. The fre
quent shifts in the fortune of the
match and the final winning spurt of
the Quaker City player when he ap
peared headed for defeat furnished the
first real thrills of the tournament.
The scoro was 6?8, 3?7, 2 6, 6 3,
It was a hard match for Washburn to
lose. Realizing in the first set that his
boat chances against ids opponent, a
superb base liner. lay In attacking at
the net. the New Yorker forced a whirl
wind pace in the second and third sets.
He was up in the forward court in
nearlv every rally and his splendid vol
leying and overhead smashing had John
son on the defensive. But the effort of
forcing It repeatedly, in order to avoid
the Phitadelphian's bothersome chop
stroke, began to tire Washburn in the
fourth set and his control began desert
ing him. ills errors enabled Johnson to
catch up with him and then Ms spe.d
failed him. Unable to maintain his
attack consistently, Washburn found
the match sliiplng from his BrMP and
Hlinoln" fast. He dropped five straight
?iimss In the final set and a closing rally
in which he brought the score to u o
proved futile.

There were fully 10,000 tennis enthu

first set. The New Yorker's stroke*
were proving the more decisive. The
sensation came in the third set. ,
Washburn, blocking effectively at the ,
net and smashing with great Precision,
won five games in a row. He ha
readied the top of his game by this time
and was depending largely on the Powc'
ot his forward court attack. Johnson
checked him momentarily, taking th.
next two games, but Washburn ended
the set in the eighth game at 6-*?

First Inning Rally Gives
Close Game to Giants
Defeat the Dodgers by Score of 3 to 1?Foolish Base
Running by the Enemy a Help to the
Polo Ground People.
The Giants had one inning of hitting
against Grimes of Brooklyn at the I
Polo Grounds yesterday, and only one, [
but that, since Jesse Barnes gave a
bang up mound performance for them, |
was all they needed. They opened i
with three runs, dosed with the supply j
neither added to nor taken from, and j
beat the Dodgers, 3 to 1. They held j
their place in the breakneck race for'
the pennant.
The Brooklyns wouldn't be ahead of
the Giants in the Subway series had
they played much of the inept and :
wooden game they played yesterday, j
Their fielding in the first inning was j
slovenly, though without overt error, j
and their base running in the ninth.;
when they were hitting and had a1
chance to catch the Giants, was stupid.
Toung Mr. Hood in the ninth turned
second base with all tile misguided
ardor of a bull in a china shop and
ran plump into an out at third, al
though Manager Robby's warning hand
was up with all the majesty but with i
nothing of the effect of a Fifth avenue I
traffic cop. Anybody less forgiving and j
angelic than Kobby would have turned
the offender over and spanked him.
"With no justification whatever Hood
matched his speed and judgment against
Pep Young's great arm and, as nobody j
was out, with no need of taking a long :
Giants I'ae Their Clubs.
Burns, Young, Kelly and Meuaal got :
together In the first inning and clubbed
Jr throe runs for themselves and iheir j
compatriots. As Grimes was invincible j
the reet of the game the Giants were
compelled to make three runs do, which
they did with the good pitching of j
Barnes, a Dodger killer these harvest
days, and smart and agile fielding. They
played smarter and livelier bail tihan
the Dodger gents. One club Is merely
finishing a season; the other sniffs u.
The Giants made their runs with two j
out. Burns opened with a single and
after Bancroft's rocket to Wheat stole ;
to the halfway house. Miller's throw j
was low but fast, and had Olson
handled a not very difficult bound
Bums would have born out. Johnston
threw out Frisch and Young's single j
scored Burns. Kelly doubled in
Wheat's direction and Young dug home.
Meusel nplUed a single beyond Kllduff
and Kelly beat Jt to the plate. Wheat's i
effort to field Young's hit was a weak '

blithely and contrary to his manager's

won a long way off when Frisch tagged
