Woodthorpe, After Running Thirty.
two Lengths to the Rear, at
Last Outwins In an Exer.
else Gallop
lorln, ■ llPßfd to bo the property
of Bookmaker J. P. Atkins, undei whose
colors she meed yesterday, gave the
talent a severe shock by runnliiK a nice
third In thp second nice nt the sweet
oddn of 2 to 5, which resulted after pub
lic money had backed the entry tnun
a good an evens. La Gloria did not
exhibit sufficient speed to catch a cow
on a country road.
Another startling and altogether won
derful reversal of form occurred when
Woodthorpe took the last race at the
select price of 8 to 1. In his last out
a a public favorite, "Woodthorpe did
not get up a respectable gallop, and
finished thirty-two leng<hs behind Lu
cerne, which ran the mile In 1:43.
Yesterday afternoon, however, Wood
thorpe came out steaming and might
have been coated with whitewash so
gleaming was his coat. Taking a good
lead, "Woodthorpe made the remainder
of the field look like a snail family out
for a walk.
Such racing will be tolerated Just so
much longer.
— main topic of conversation about
the track yesterday centered around the
placing of Clgarlighter In the sixth
event Thursday, wh«n the latter looked
to be a winner from Merllngo.
Sals was backed to favoritism for the
first race, closing at 14 to 5, while Judge
Denton, aa second choice, was backed
from 6s to 3 to 1. Betsy closed at 4s.
■while Sir Caruthers held his own at ss.
Judge Denton was first to show, but his
feet bothered him. and the Judge re
fused to do anything after the fourth.
Betsy and Caruthers then took com
mand, with Sais on the rail. Harris, on
the latter, tried to get through, but was
obliged to go over the field, then coming
on to win hand-ridden from Betsy, who
was doing her best to get place. Sais
with better racing luck might have won.
80 far as the betting was concerned
the alleged owner of Atkins' horse, La
Gloria, proved the -whole ring show,
being backed from less than even
money to 2 to 1. Revolt, the second
choice, sold for ss. La Gloria's form
warranted prohibitive odds. Off to a
good start. La Gloria led the field for
a fourth, where Succeed took command
and never relinquished the lead. Re
volt had small difficulty In apparently
outgaming La Gloria for the place.
Prolific was liked for the third event,
going to the post at 6 to 6, after 8 to 5
might have been had. FraßCuelo re
ceded to 2 to 1, while Nappa was backed
from 6s to 3s. The other went friend
less to the post.
Dr. Crook and Frascuelo set the pace
until the stretch, where Prolific as
sumed leadership and won on the bit.
Frascuelo was easily second. Dr. Crook
had no difficulty in beating Nappa for
the place.
For the fourth, W. H. Carey was
backed as though everything had ended
but the noise. Donohue money came
Into evidence at post time and sent
Wayland's horse to the post, a 7 to 5
favorite. A. Muskoday, backed from
5s to 3s, because of mud running- abil
ities, started to make a runaway race,
leading- the field at one time by five
lengths. Harris made his move on
Donohue at the half and won handily.
W. H. Carey could not untr»ck himself
and wants faster going.
Ten bad selling platers faced Holt
man for the fifth, with Robert Mitchell
chalked as favorite, Remember second
choice and El Paisano could be had at
4s. At the start, Song of the Sea un
seated Jockey F. Hlldebrand, who
luckily escaped without injury. Happy
Rice went to the front, with Seed Cake
second and El Paisano third. At the
turn for home El Paisano came on fast,
but was obliged to go around the field,
winning easily from Mitchell, who beat
Happy Rice for show money.
Freeßlas was made favorite for the
sixth event, with Viona second choice.
Woodthorpe went back in the betting
from 4s to Bs. In his last race Wood
thorpe performed miserably, finishing
thirty-two lengths to the rear of the
winner. Yesterday was another day,
however, and the price appeared more
tempting. Woodthorpe went to the
front and simply galloped. Viona was
second all the way and ran the race.
Adonis nipped out Marpessa for show
at the wire.
Ascot Jockles and Newsies baseball
teams will play a game January 2 for
a wager of $100.
Associate Judge Pomeroy, with
jockles at the track, will attend ser
vices which are to be held Sunday
over the remains of Jockey Lewis, who
was killed Monday.
Only an ordinary rard 1b provided for
today at Ascot. The horsemen will
keep their good ones In the barn In
preference to running them over a
heavy track. Six well filled events will
be run and close finishes will probably
be the result. No stakes or hiindlrfips
are on the card, but the fourth race
between CinKarllKhtcr niul Line of Life
is sufficient of a drawing rani.

Lady Kitty has Louise Fltzsibbon to
beat in the first race. The latter is fit
and ready, but is a slow beginner. Star
of Runnymede will run a good race
and will be a dangerous factor. Joan
of Arc Is very speedy and has a good
chance to win. The following horse
numbers may go up after the finish:
Lady Kitty, Louise Fltzglbbon, Star ot
■ Confessor looks to have ihe best
chance to get away with the second
race. The weight will not bother him
and only an ordinary field is opposed
to him. I'M Bernado showed a good
turn of speed In hi Isst race and run
as though short. Thai race wll put
him on edge for this afternoon and he
should beat out Jack Kercheville for
place, .

If Escalante Is anywhere near to the

should beat this kind like breaking

La Chata. Toots Mook makes her de

upset calculation by winning, as she
shows good work in her morning trials.
Young Davis and Prince Magnet will
set such a fast clip in the sixth race
they should come in one, two. Young
Davis Is very game, while Prince Mag

quit. Gentle Harry should hold the
balance safe.
It is expected that Starter Jake Holt
man, who has been officiating at Ascot,
will leave Sunday for San Francisco,
where he will preside over the Emery
ville barrier for several weeks. Dick
Dwyer, the northern starter, will come
south and act for Holtman. Northern
racing devotees have been well satis
fied with Dwycr's work during the
present season.

TONOPAH, Nov., Dec. 28.— Afl the
days roll by and the Gans-Herman
fight draws closer the sporting frater
nity about town scorns to be more
than ever up In the nlr over the out
come of the bout, although when the
match wns first made there was a
genera] feeling throughout sportdom
thnt the Chicago fißhter had no chancn
Whatever The sporting writers of thr
country have evidently got out their
dopp books and figured It all over
again. Within the last wock more
than one of the men who hnve earned
big reputations by their predictions on
pugilistic events have declared that
"K!d" Herman not only has a chance,
but v pood one, of currying off cham
pionship honors on New Year's day.
It is probably due to this reasoning
by the sport writers that a number of
men whose faces are well known about
the centers of turf and ring gossip
on the coast and In Chicago have
quietly dropped Into town the last day
or i--o. They have come very quietly
mid mixed with the crowds that throng
the quarters of the fighters ev«ry after
noon. They do not get into the circle
of professional fight fans who have
gathered about Manager Riley's office
and settled all ficrhts, jiast, present ami
future, every night.
One or two of those pilgrims have
departed again as quietly as they came,
but before leaving they assured person •
al friends that they would be here on
New Year's day. and In proof of that
they carried with them a number of
choice seats each.
The arena Is at a stage now where
its completion is assured at lenst two
dnys before the fight. Riley has kept
this matter under his personal super
vision since the first timber of the
foundation wns laid and the rapidity
with which the building of the big
fight fest house has been accomplished
despite traffic blockades, wrecks, wind
storms and labor troubles Is sufficient
testimony to his ability as a director
of big operations.
The arena is Riley's particular pride,
and justifiably so. The structure is
no flimsy temporary affair. It is as
solid and substantial in construction
as any of the big mills in this country.
Rlley says that in- building it he was
not thinking only of this bout, but of
many other pugilistic events that he
is holding up his sleeve. The building
will last for years and Manager Mike
Rlley declares that more than one of
the biggest fights in the world will
be pulled off in it.
The seat sale for New Year's day
has passed all expectation and a banner
crowd Is promised when the Ghettoite
and the Baltimorean try conclusions.

Michigan hurdler, weight man and foot
ball player, and T. P. Klely, winner of

Sheridan, however, is very consistent,
although he Is not a star In any one

Munn should roll up the most points
among the Callfornlans and his chances
of winning should be the best. There
is no doubt that Munn's high Jump of
five feet eleven Inches and his pole
vault record of over eleven feet would
beat the easterners, and then in the

overcome the big percentage Rose and
