The Sport Page TI GREAT SPEED DURING J918 SEASON CUBBY FAVORITE II MORE DEATHS AT Considering the 101P Grand Circuit racing season solely from the standpoint of extreme speed, especially In the trotiing division, the records made far surpass those of any other year, particularly in number of fast beats trotted in races, number of horses making the records and the general �peed average for the to'.al. The racing season ot 1017 was looked upon as the best in harness turf annals for the above points, yet the result of the season just closed makes a much better showing. Taking the customary standards of trotting speed at 2:05, a clip always considered fast enough to outclass race trotters from regulation purse acd stake events, the year's records are unsurpassed when compared with any other past season. Thirty-Nine Fast Heats Last year through the entire Grand Circuit 10 trotters figured as wlnncra of heats in racos at 2:05 or faster, the entire group trotting a total of 32 heats at that clip.

' In point of number of performers, heats and average apecd, this showing has never been equalled, conslde.-ing the fact that those figures pertain exclusively to actual racing contests and performances against time not considered. Last year the topnotch performers were Early Dreams, with seven heats to bis credit, and Mabel Trask with six, St. Frisco having five, while this year Lu Princeton has no less than 14 winning heats to h)s credit from 2:0" to 2:05. only one at tho slow clip, �while St. Frisco negotiated Dine, one equal to his former mark of 2:01?;, und another in 2:02V�, or against his ocond fastest ot 1917 in J:03. What was the speed showing of theso two turf sensations can hotter be judged by tho fact that both Lu Princeton and St. Frisco showed al- ANDY The Radiator Man Has Moved to 418 5th Street S.
