Favorites Win in Straight Heats
in Petaluma Harness Races
Special by Leased Wire to The Call
PETALEMA. Aug. 26.— During this
week light harness men will hay* their
inning at Kenllworth park. Some of
the best harness horses in California
are carfled to try for tb«. big purses
that have been hung up by Manager
Harry Stover.
The first harness race on the card this
afternoon was the 2:14 pace for a purse
of $1,500, and a large crowd saw In
ferlotta, always a prohibitive favorite
in the betting, win the event in
straight heats. Pilot, driven by C.
Walker, trailed until the turn for
home in the first heat and made his
drive the last sixteenth, but could not
c*t dose enough to send Hewitt to a
drive. In the last two. heats Garrlty
sent Queen Pomona on about her busi
ness and she was easily second In each.
It required only three heats to decide
the 2:17 trot. Carlocan, driven by Dur
fee. won them all, but had to do his
best." Carlocan was the public choice
and 1 to 5 was the highest quotation
against him. Like Inferlotta, Carlocan
was held out by the layers In the last
two heats.
Stover's Katie Crews won the five
furlong scramble. Some of th« wise
ones passed up Katie Crew* at S to 3
and unloaded on Jack Richelieu Jr.
From 20 to 1 he was backed down to.
12, but he had no chance to beat the
Stover mare.
The master of Kenllworth sent
another winner to the post In the
fourth ev#nt, when Bevenful outgamed
Red Bill In the last 20 yards. . Seven

R. A. Smyth
Sufficient wagerlngwas done yester
day on the coming fight between Mike
Schreck ' and : Al Kaufman "to" show that
the former- will ~ be a -pronounced fa
vorite over the Callfornlan.' ..There
was some ; betting at '1Q : to 8/; but. the
price dropped quickly to 10 to 7. \u25a0:« This
looks like one of those good long shot
bets which .. have- been cashed . here
with great regularity for some ; time.
It would , not; \ surprise Kaufman's
friends if he flattened out the Chicago
man. . \u25a0-','..;:,"- .. \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0-.; \u0084;:,
\u25a0 Schreck can be hit, as has been
shown In the majority of his fights,
and Kaufman Is 7 one of the • hardest
hitters in the business. In his /ama
teur days he. beat all. of his men quick*
ly, and as he has filled out consider
ably since' them, he should {have im
proved his ability in this: branch of ; the
game. It Is two years "since' he 'was
defeated by Jacks O'Brien, and 'since
then he has \u25a0 beaten" : Fred ' Bradley,
Dave Barry, George Gardner and ' Sam
Kaufman nearly put O'Brien out In
the first round of their fight here. The
blow landed a littletoo high' or 1 the
dapper Philadelphlan would have gone
down. Schreck also nearly beat O'Brien
In a fight at.St. Louis with a right to
the jaw. O'Brien' weathered the ; storm
and then. he bit. his rotund opponent at
will, but "could not stop him. -
Billy Roche, who wilL" referee the
fight, visited Kaufman yesterday .and
will go down to Colmato see Schreck
this afternoon. Kaufman understands
that he must break at the coramand'of
the referee and Schreck- will i be given
the same instructions. 'Schreck 1 Is of
the bustling order of fighter and it Is
not likely that hewill want to hold.
The seats were placed on sale yester
day at Wolf- Brothers, 5 1317 Fillmore,
and at the Willis, ; 1515 Ellis street.
They are on sale alp o at .Devereaux's
cigar stand in Oakland. Manager Greg
gains has gained by his experience in
handling the Brltt-Nelson flght in the
Auditorium and will correct . some of
the bad, features of that affair. The
ventilation has been improved. greatly
and additional exits have been ar
ranged. Billy Delaney has^promised
to have the big fellows in the ring at
.9 o'clock on. Thursday night. •
Joe Gans is going along quietly with
his training for his meeting with Britt
and is having a hard time in keeping
up his weight. Alvie King, who man
aged Gans some years ago, ; says the
shrinkage in, Gans' weight seems to be
confined chiefly, to his legs. Gans-was
on the, road yesterday morning and In
the afternoon he boxed with Fred Lan
ders and Antone. la Grave. /Tomorrow
will be ladles' day at Gans' camp, and
he will put .to. considerable
trouble to please all of the spectators
at his quarters. - . '
The moving '[ picture man will visit
Brltt's quarters : today to take some
photographs : of ; v Brltt in \u25a0 training.
These will .be used? to advertise! the
flght. Wlllus, the managing : brother,
has acquired an' automobile-^a

the flght. He'claims to have mastered

Credited. With Success of
Automobile Track Meet
at Tahforan i
R. R. l'Hommedieu
The main subject of conversation
along automobile row yesterday waa
the. race meet which the -Olympic cluj
conducted on' the Tanforan track on
Sunday. Not an" adverse comment was
heard. All seemed surprised tiiat men
not supposed, to be acquainted with th 3
automobile racing- game had brought
off such a clean cut event. There -were
no lone waits and the drivers were sent
to the line on time. Will Middleton,
who had charge of the paddock, worked
wonders. He had the mm ready for
each event before its predecessor had
been finished. Bob Graham was there
also. He kept in touch with the pact
dock/and the judges*, stand. The Hn
ing up r of the' contestants so that they
were In" their proper places for the
starter's flag was conducted success
fully by Dave Sinclair.. 'President
Humphrey }n the judges* stand kept
that end of " the 'game well In hand.
These. men were the heads of the sev
eral departments.
Jdhn A. Kennedy, chairman of the
committee that- had charge of the
meeting, said last night that he had
not counted -the tickets, but in sizing
them .up felt sure that between 7,000
and 8,000 persona had passed In at the
gates. This will not represent the
sum that, will be realized, as several
concessions ' brought 'In a goodly
amount.* Many of the members bought
tickets which they did not use. When
all the returns are received it is likely
that $10,000 will have been realized.
