Hildreth Puts One Over on Hirsh Who Is Not On Watch to Guard Against a Thunderclap By V. C. YREELAND. TWO souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one." . Sam C. Hildreth, the trainer of the Kancocas horses, turned loose Thuuiiderclap In the White Plains Handicap and the big black gelding by Viikain lolloped the short six furlong course In 1:09. In that victory there runs a talc i-f shattered confidence and misplaced faith In the "form" of racehorses. Strange to say, this was entertained by Maxie Hirsch, the owner-trainer v ho has distorted and twisted form in as many queer shapes as has Hildreth. Put to think that it was served tip by a brother trainer oh-h-h-h-h, the heartbreaking agony of it all. The methods of some trainers arc very similar. They think It sport and good game to fool the patrons of tho track. But when the same thing Is handed to them it's an entirely different matter. They resent It bittcrlyi They have been deceiv-ed, with tho accent on the "ed." In the nierrymonth of May, likewise June, Thunderclap had been racing very much in the shape of that horse which was taken as a model to emphasize "no speed here" to advertise a certain cure for spavins, ringbones, osslets and a few other disturbances that tend to -bring a Man o' War down to the. condition of a carthorse in the matter of speed.
