T ETTER DAYS for the first outdoor horse show of the season could hardly have been arranged than Friday and Saturday of last week when the Fifth Annual Fort Hamilton Horse show took place on the Parade Grounds at the Bay Ridge Army Post for the benefit of the Army Relief Society. The weather was perfect if a little chilly, but what of that when the Colonel's lady, if she began to feel a trifle too cool in the shaded boxes, could go and stand with Judy O'Grady on the sunny side of the ring? Indeed few of the guests at these outdoor events stay in their seats for any length of time, as it is much more amusing to walk around and talk to each other and to the riders and inspect and caress the more docile of the actual participants in the show. On the first day it looked as though the honors of the show might go to the William Boardman stables which captured six blues. The bav gelding "The Virginian" won in three saddle classes, "The Black Watch," "Miss Virginia" "Miss Barbara" of the same owner also taking firsts. However, the second day made it clear that the real sensation of the Show was Mrs. John C. Loud's "Little Jeff," who had won his novice jumping event only the day before. "Little Jeff" is a chestnut gelding, who won in both saddle and hunting and jumping classes, and whose rise to a double championship (for he not only took the handsome Cathedral Cup given by Mr. John McEntee Bowman, but won in the champion hunter and jumper class) in two days might almost justify the use of that overworked newspaper adjective, meteoric. Certainly it is interesting that the two Horse Shows held in Brooklyn this year should each have brought into prominence an animal hitherto unknown or practically so, "Little Jeff's" leap into the limelight beinsr comparable to that of Miss Greve's "Prudence" at the Brooklyn Show last month. In the Cathedral Class the reserve went to the First Division Polo Associations bay mare "Barbara." All in all, 13 creatures, saddle horses, polo mounts, hunters and jumpers included were shown in this class thereby adding a substantial sum toward the construction of the Sportsman's Bay in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. As on the first day, on Saturday the largest share of ribbons was won by the Boardman entries. The chestnut mare, "Miss Virginia" was the champion in the large division of saddle horses and her stable mate, the bay mare "Miss Nancy" the reserve. In the small class "Miss Barbara" won and the reserve went to "The Virginian" The reserve in the champion hunting and jumping class went to Captain and Mrs. David S. Rumbough's "Southern "Southern Gold." Other winners were Miss Regina P. Kiely's chestnut gelding "Lord Jim," Mrs. Edwin Gates Babcock's bay gelding "Beverly," Mrs. R. B. lloneyman, Jr.'s chestnut gelding "Dubonnet," Captain and Mrs. Rum-bough's Rum-bough's Rum-bough's bay gelding "First Flight." The Show ended with a spirited race for polo mounts between Mr. J. Ealter Kopke's bay gelding "Gringo" and Captain R. Ernest Dupuy's chestnut mare "Golden Girl" which was won by the former by a few yards' margin.
