Adelaide Sport (Newspaper) - May 02, 1924, Adelaide, South AustraliaNational Library of Australia u race sat Victoria Park ill o doubles to Boorn and mules Isri. Good Day for Cylon by Bev Crege Beautiful meteorological con Drew a splendid attendance one of the Best Ever registered at what May be considered an off meeting to Victoria Park on saturday when Tattersall club provided a programme of eight races. The tote turnover aggregated More than �40,000, and was easily a record for this particular fixture. The track was in splendid order and some fast times were registered. A feature of the racing was the Success of the progeny of Cylon four of his get being first past the Post which a splendid achievement for any sire. Two jockeys a. Beam and g. Mules each won a double while Trainer w. Kop Wood saddled up two winners in Stormy petrel and thaleta. Still in the vein. By capturing the hurdle race the Carisbrooke gelding Gamba showed that despite successive rises in weight he still in winning vein. This was his fifth win in succession Over the battens a Leighly meritorious record. Had Gamba been started at Oak Bank it quite on the cards that he would have scored there although on the other hand one Ean never Tell How a horse will fare with the formidable hurdles in the Hills course. The improving no chop who has come on Well since joining Matin Whelan establishment gave Gamba a hard race Home and the journey had to be covered in time equalling the state record for the latter to squeeze Home. With his old Pilot in the Saddle Listolier ran his Best race for a Long while and although he finished Only a poor third the a Guries Are that he will be in the limelight before Long. Backers of Simon Castle were nid Neky in that his rider lost his Irons and the big fellow had to be pulled up. Deserved win. Southgate who annexed the first division of the welter had been racing most consistently lately in sprint company and therefore it was not out of his turn to win a stake. Another occupant of the same stable Southgate in Buffi Ine was a Strong tip for the race. He was better supported than the Winner but although he almost reached the front at the straight Entrance he died away in the Home run. Punters of the favorite some opera were decidedly unlucky. The Mare Drew an outside number but her rider soon had her up with the leading division. Along with me Bolt some opera led into the straight but her diminutive Pilot was of no assistance to her in the final Furlong. And this was responsible for her being narrowly beaten out of place. The ancient me Bolt and the luckless Blank Fil dead heated for second Money while Bonnie gift who had run last at each of his two previous outings showed improvement by finishing sixth. Stormy petrel flies. Gay boy peaceful chief lord French and ble noir were All better backed in the first heat of the breeders Handicap than was the Winner Stormy petrel who a brother to the fancied Goodwood Handicap candidate helicopter and a half brother to Dundalk. Although Stormy petrel had shown a Little Pace on two or three previous occasions his exhibitions had hardly been encouraging enough to suggest that he would teat the four favourites in the manner and the smart time in which he did. Hardly a youngster in the state seems capable of winning twice in succession. Gay boy for instance who fairly a it away with his last i Ace made a very feel attempt this time but lord French who followed him Home a fortnight ago was again second this time much in front of the Green Seal cd it. The unlucky one of the race was tie top weight ble noir who looked in Good order for the fray. This ii de with Early and although Mcnice buckwheat Colt was inter finished splendidly found it impossible to give away the lost ground. Half brother to Para too. By Cylon from Xena Belle and therefore a a ii brother to i h = i ii Tol chose Para too Ca Pancu = who carried off the second of vision of the breeders Handicap c edited the spearmint horse with i second Victory scr the . Both Stormy petrel and Capan a Cus Vevie piloted by Charlie Bourn i try it pleasing to see this again making his Way Imp the list of jockeys. Ca Pancis. V. To a Colt trained by his breeder. H. P. Mclachlan who also started the Martyr st. Anton Muracca in the same race. The favorite Tiralla Hung on gamely enough this time but Elci Ara who looked far from right. Ran very moderately and apparently a let up would do him Good Mantellini made his after a spell and ran a fair race finishing immediately behind his stablemate Chatain who was fourth. Useful Socrates. Where the company a not too select usually the Case in distance races in Adelaide a horse like Socrates who a solid sticker a useful proposition. There were several fair mile and a half horses in the autumn Handicap Field but it was a Case with most of them of not being quite wound up. This was where. Socrates stamina came in. The Boradil gelding Well seasoned and when some of the Unready ones were beginning to feel the Pinch he was going on strongly and won with something in pc and. Since passing into the hands if Sam Rasheed some months ago Socrates has won four Long distance races in the City and stakes aggregating Over �1200, so Chat at 365 guineas he has proved a splendid Purchase. Little pass ado Hung on gamely after doing most of the pacing and kept Cadengo who finished fairly Well out of second Money. The South easterner Andrada was close up fourth and Armada showed up for a while in the straight. Leahcim was withdrawn and his stable companion King of mirth carried a Little support. The comedy King Colt was one of the Vanguard for the greater portion of the journey but then commenced to drop. One of the Adelaide cup fan cies in Chaparral finished up about seventh or eighth after being always within striking distance and it would appear though his preparation progressing All right. At first attempt. It Only a few weeks since thaleta was secured for this state and it Seldom that an interstate Purchase wins at first i attempt the to weight was More or less overlooked by the general run of backers. Even so he started second a \ Orite so that his connections j must have been fairly confident of i Success. Thaleta an aged Geld i ing by Duke of Melton who was the sire of that once Good Miler Ptah. This not the first time that thaleta has run in South austra j Lia. Several seasons ago he Cross Jed Over to run in the Oak Bank hurdle race but put up a very poor fight. J Epictetus was always Handy but Coniti make no impression on the j Winner in the Home run. Nairne j passed both Marmorata and week Trunnion in the straight and gained third Money. Mules had evidently determined not to allow Kildonan to baulk on this occasion Bat despite his efforts in stirring him up the Geld ing refused at the third hence when a Iong Way in front. When Kildonan stopped he interfered with lord Varco who was Well placed at the time and caused the a co gelding also to pull up. A usually Safe jumper in Andridge clouded Niemann off at the Stone Wall bred to Gallop. To re j if anything Brcci to Gaii Pic Chelate who ran away with the second division of the welter in half a second faster time thaa Southgate occupied in the Fript j heat. I Chelate by Cylon from the Welkin Mare Deneb. Who could shift her heels to some tune on her Clay and will be remembered ?.s winning the Norwood Handicap a few seasons ago at an . Birthday meeting. a youngster Chelate was trained by it. Bradfield for e. M. Hawker who won a race with the filly at the Adelaide cup meeting two years ago. Recently Chelate was leased to w. A. A. West whose colors she carried on Satin Day. The Oak Bank disappointment lady Chesson started at a remunerative Price this time and paid a Nice Price for second while Argosy boy brother who evidently going to be useful was in the Ether position i expected Mam bin to do better but after Beisig handily placed throughout he failed to come on and Duke purple finally beat him for fourth place. First win since a juvenile. When Vesuvius ran away with the pile Handicap of six and a half furlongs she registered her first Victory since her two year old Days and one could hardly say that it was out of her turn. A few weeks before the Christmas Handicap was run she gave Promise by ending up second to Alo Cosia in a six Furlong affair at Headquarters that she would prove valuable property a three year old but until saturday although she had secured second place again on three other occasions she failed to break through and score outright. At one stage of saturday contest it looked though Vesuvius would again taste defeat. This was Between the live and four furlongs where Tagala and Jules Jordon were out on their own another Batch of three or four were in a line next and Vesuvius was following on. The Cylon filly however managed to find an opening in the straight and won stylishly. Sweet Magne gained additional admirers for the Goodwood Handicap by the manner in which he finished but Golden cock had every Chance Only to end up a moderate third. The Pace at the Start settled Tress Vale who was fairly flying Ever the last Hundred Yards while both pop along and Pistolese ran fairly Well.
