NINE WIN AT ASCOT
DERBY HORSES DO WELL
(From "The Post's" Representative.) LONDON, 25th June. An interesting feature of the Eoyal Ascot Meeting was that nine of the 25
horses which ran in the Derby—-in-
eluding the first, second, and third in the Epsom classic—won races at. the subsequent "Aristocratic" meeting. These were:
Cameronian (Mr. J. A. Dewar's Derby winner), who carried off most victoriously the St. James's Palace Stakes, one mile,
for three-year-olds,, beating by three lengths Sir Abe Bailey's Trinidad, in a field of six runners. Cameronian thus achieved a' second very popular victory in the period of two weeks, and everybody's admiration for the brilliant colt is greatly increased. He will probably not be seen out again until the St. Leger. Orpen (second ,in the Derby), a Solario colt from the Swynford mare Harpy, and raced by Sir J. Rutherford, carried off the Hardwicke Stakes, one and a half miles, value 3120 soys, decisively by two lengths from Sir H. de Walden's Rose en Soleil, with Armagnac (another Derby candidate) third. There were eleven runners. Orpen is trained at Manton by J. Lawson. .. ■
Sandwich, third in the Derby, had only two opponents in the King Edward VI. Stakes, of 3075 soys, over the Swinley course, one and a half miles. For his owner, Lord Rosebery, he carried oft' the honours, with the Aga Khan's Khorslieed one aud a half lengths behind. The winner, who is by Sansovino, from the Buckwheat mare Waffles, is trained at Newmarket by J. Jarvis. '£hc i Aga Khan's Pomme d'Api, sixth in the- Derby, was successful in the Ascot GoU Vase, two miles, and with"lSoo soys. By-Zionist from Pomare, by Saint Just, Pomme dApi was the second favourite m a field of eleven, and he achieved a popular and decisive victory by four lengths. After keeping a place behind one or two pacemakers, he made a quick move into the lead as the last bend was readied. The colt's ., way of turning on the pace was quite ■remarkable. The iu-ench horse, Amfortas, was second. The winner is trained at Whatcombe by E. Dawson. The Aga Khan was. a very'happy owner. Amfortas came from France with the reputation of having done remarkably well this season, and he was the favourite. Grindleton, a brown colt' by Torelore from Ballyhurry, by Hurry On, put another success to the Derby contingent when he scored from end to end in the Cork and Orrery All-Aged Stakes, of 1285 soys, six furlongs.' Two other three-year-olds, Pricket (Twelve Pointer—Pic'ardel) and Elixir (Galloper Light—Elsaveta) were in the minor places. The winner, who was ridden by H. Beasley, was bred and is owned by Mr. J. W. Sharpies, and is trained by L. Cundell, part-owner and trainer of the Ascot Stakes winner, Noble
Doctor DolitUe, badly interfered with at
Epsom, somewhat compensated Mr. A. F. Basset (owner), 11. S., Persee (trainer), ?",!,• , ? asley (i°ckey) ky carving oil' the Kibblesdale Stakes of 1780 soys, one mile, m a field of nine, which included the Derby disappointment, Beveillon (owner, /\ r,, ~ Bul'ough).. Doctor Dolittlo (Abbots lrace from Sundrilla, by Sundndge) is a beautiful big colt, and started avoiintc. The win was achieved by two lengths from Sir E. Tate's Pal o' Mine, a North Country horse. ■ • Abbot's Worthy, twelfth in the Derby, won the Waterford Stakes, 2490 soys, distance one. mile. Ho is also by. Abbot's Trace,-dam Pomsan, by Pommern; owner and breeder, Mr. V. T. Thompson; trainer, F. Hartigan; jockey, Joe Canty. This was a very interesting race to watch, and the horse was not the favourite. The win was decisive.
Sir Andrew (Gallahad 111., from Gravitate, by Henry tho First) gained for the fine American sportsman, Mr. W. Woodward (president of the New York Jockey Club) the Prince of Wales's Stakes, of 3375 soys, run over the new course, about one mile five furlongs. His victory by three-quarters of a length from Lord Astors Creme Brulee-was quite a definitely good one and reflected credit on P. Beasley, who was up. Behind the winner were fourteen horses, of whom Armagnac, Shell Transport, Estate Duty, and Lightning Star had run in the Derby. Ihe Aga Khan's Pickpocket appealed most to popular fancy, but he occupied only fifth place. Racing critics maintain that Sir Andrew's Derby running was. all wrong. , At Epsom this colt worked himself into a state of considerable excitement before the race, and nobc" who saw him go to the post at Ascot, perfectly unruffled, could question his prospects of showing up well.
The first event of the opening day, the Queen Anne Stakes, named after the first Eoyal patron of Ascot, was carried off by Lord Glanely's Coldstrcam, who was not very prominent, on the Epsom• course. He
is a black colt by Grand Parade from Placidia, by Valens; jockey, Gordon Richards; trainer, Captain T. Hogg, Newmarket. The stakes, o[ 1260 soys, is' run over the Hunt Cup course, seven furlongs 15i5 yards. Near homo, Blajor J. S. Cqurtauld's Osiris ■ (Papyrus—Most Beautiful) made a very strong challenge, but Coldtstreani obtained a head victory, which much pleased tho section of the public who are faithful followers of Richards. The. field was composed of eighteen runners, one being the Derby contestant, Knoloina., who was third.
