Adelaide Sport (Newspaper) - April 4, 1924, Adelaide, South Australia
National Library of Australia ? doubles to Boom and me burst delightful weather favored the autumn meeting of the Gawler jockey club on saturday the hint of rain in the morning giving Way to a Beautiful afternoon. Naturally with no really big counter attractions the attendance was a splendid one and the tote turnover was easily the Best Ever registered at this particular gathering. Four of the Public s first fancies were successful but the results of the last two events were against punters of favourites who would not generally speaking have a successful Day. Two jockeys. C. Boorn and r. Medhurst each scored a double. Good times were registered in almost every race. Three year Olds in places three year oids win a fair share of races of the Novice and trial stakes class and it was noteworthy that each of the place getters in the. Trial on saturday was of that age. Six of the 22 runners were three year Olds. The Winner Antooa is a Hal brother by St. Anton to the two year old Paro Odus who ran second in a youngsters race on this track to Jolly Polly. Antooa had previously shown a Little form by winning & Small race in the country and later running third in a trial at Victoria Park. Antooa is raced by a Good sport in r. R. Vaughton who had a splendid run of successes with the Chaser sir pistol and also won races with Bright key. He usually keeps a horse or two in training Charlie. Boorn handled the Winner in quite his Best style. The fact that George mules elected to ride poppy in place of a. D. Mcdonald s representative for Glen no doubt accounted for the Good dividend returned about the passing by gelding. The unlucky horse of the race appeared to lie Polyxena who ended up third. Medhurst who Rode Heimas disappointed in being blocked at the turn and when he did get the filly Clear at the top of the straight she sustained a severe bump which sent her Back again. Her turn should come before Long. Four in succession. At one time in the wagering on the hurdle race it looked As though Gamba is would Start at a Shade of Odds on but Ashen the _ _ Barrier lifted he was at Short Odds against in a two dividend machine. The race proved the Good thing that the betting indicated As in the capable hands of Harold Bracegirdle the Carisbrook gelding scored stylishly. Saturday s win was the fourth in succession for Gamba is and it avas noticeable that he did not shirk or run Down the obstacles to any great extent which was a fault in most of his earlier races. Nevertheless if he does tackle Oak Bank it is quite on the cards that the big obstacles 011 the Hills course will put a Check to his victorious career. Looking will to the Eye though not in the same hard condition As the Winner exchequer was solidly supported. He was Well in the picture in the Early part of the contest and lasted until about half a mile from Home. The race should be of considerable Benefit to him. Transit put up a Good honest Effort in running second and no chop was travelling better at the end than at any other stage. Strathcona again spoilt his Chance by faulty leaping but hands up improving greatly on his initial Effort at Cheltenham shaped in promising fashion. Rogue s honest run. By the Way in which he had failed repeatedly when heavily supported Prince aides had certainly deserved the appellation of rogue being tacked on to him but there was no denying the honesty with which he finished in the autumn Handicap. He ran the mile and a Quarter in smart time but possibly had there been something in the race to give him a really serious fight in the run Home he would have turned it up As he did at the port a fortnight before. It was Prince aides first Triumph since he scored at Kadina last year. Pass ado was putting in Good work when the race was practically Over but he took altogether too Long to get Cut of the Ruck Ever to have a real Chance. The third place getter Cambray lord was left when the ropes flew up and did remarkably Well to finish so close As he did to the dividend payers. The lord Alwyne gelding is a pretty fair sort of sticker and should play a prominent part in some of the Long distance handicaps in the City shortly. Judging by the poor response which pjs Tolene made when the question was put to her in the straight it would appear As though she is feeling the effects of All the racing and travelling she has had lately. It would not be surprising if she needed a Little freshening up. Both top Hole and double Musket went off at a great Pace but they Only succeeded in cutting one another s throats although top Hole Hung on fairly Well to finish up fourth. Italic again failed to reproduce that form which enabled him to press the storm and miss Netley so closely at Cheltenham the other Day. Class tells its tale. The Popin Joy filly Bright poppy was a hot favorite in the juvenile Handicap but although she was i widened with the substantial Load 9.7, she came through in great in the straight and finally running away to favorite following the sex of Redacre Rah a Little wide top of the Home stretch moment avidly had her supports hiking but once straightened a Rildy. Picked to the leaders d her class she is an Osk lands l Date Winner carried her through Charlie Boorn completed a double through the instrumentality of Bright poppy and he managed her with skill and patience round the Evans ton turns. Skill was needed too As the popinjays filly is still wayward. A couple of youngsters who had not previously been placed occur pied the minor positions. They were Ella Simon. Who showed a Little place Early in the season and Gay element a comedy King filly in Patterson s stable. Thus Ali were fillies. Redacre showed his Early Pace but would not be kept straight and life Rue. Who has not done much racing also displayed the Possession of some toe. A newcomer in the buckwheat gelding Wembley went nicely for a first attempt. Another 3iew one in the Field was names a a half sister by in cops to Alwyne King but she Fot away badly and never had a Chance. National Winner in form. If any doubts had been entertained regarding the condition of the National Winner Dundalk they were set at rest by the stylish performance put up by the Little pistol gelding in the Brush steeplechase the first at Evans ton since the new year. Dundalk was a Long Way Back Over the first three or four fences but at the end of a circuit his jumping had got him into second place. He lost that position temporarily but picked up the leaders again at the Back of the course my leading Over the final Obs i Tacle managed Hara Ridden to j stall off Kars who also finished j with Resolution. It was a Good performance on the part of Dundalk to carry top. Eight and win a Lei several months absence from the Ermine he gained Many friends for the great Eastern by the Effort an \ As the chances that he Best i further improved he threatens to be Well in the picture on Caster monday. Kars who created a rather a Ora Fole impression by ending up j second is a full brother to tis Hur Dier Prince Mae Gwyn and is in the same stable As encounter j King. The last named is getting through a solid preparation pro j Bably i that the great. Eastern Tor in View. Alapati was expected to improve on the form he had shown m his two previous outings when he had finished third but it was a Case with him of Bellows to mend with half a mile still to be traversed.
