GOODRICHS GOODRICH GREAT RACE RACEThe Racketed The Great Western Handicap a sweepstakes ifor for 3 yearolds earls and upwards at one and onehalf Neal miles worth 2100 to the winner caused the presence of the largest Saturday crowd of the meeting bar Derby day at Washington Park and conclusively proved the popularity of long distance racing The card outside of the stake event was a fair one The day was extremely hot and uncomfortable Twentythree Twenty book ¬ makers cut in for two days but Ed Austin was an absentee while Dave Wright went on It was said that this popular bookmaker who almost every day made the pace as to ring prices is a heavy los r at the present meeting It is certain that never before in the history of Chicago racing has the public been treated to such liberal odds as now A bookmaker to win must necessarily hold the winner and a man like George Wheelock Headlock with three or four effi effigy cient client aids could surely make several hundreds of dollars daily by playing every horse that starts at the highest price and to do this a cap ¬ ital vital of not more than 5000 would be required Sweeney Serenely announced to the ring that bookmak bookmark ¬ ers must occupy the spaces designated by num numb ¬ ber beer and keep away from the posts This meant the greater convenience of the public no matter what the concealed motive motiveThe motivate The betting on the Great Western Handicap was of a general nature no particular horse be ¬ ing King lumbered on John Rodegap Bodega thought that the 9 to 5 tavorite favorite What er Lou should have won the Oakwood Lakewood Handicap but questioned the abil ail ¬ ity city of Foucon Soupcon when in such highclass highlands company of jockeys Louis Ezell Bezel could but think well of Morte Mote Fonse Fosse and Bmg Binger Bringer had recently beaten a record Goodrich was much liked by the select few but Candelaria Candelabra was entirely ne ¬ glected elected Bing Being Binger Bringer rank as could be quite ran away with Clawson Lawson and led for a mile and threesixteenths where What er Lou always second picked him up and soon beaten Bar ¬ retts frets horse fell away to nothing Morte Mote Fonse Fosse liad laid been third for a mile but then gave away to Candelaria Candelabra who however was at once dis dais ¬ placed by Goodrich now beginning his run What er Lou came into the straight with such a pronounced lead that the race seemed over By an eighth further on he was sent to the whip and Tommy Burns on Goodrich without urging his horse ran home the easiest of winners while What er Lou died so fast that old Morte Mote Fonse Fosse apparently all out a half mile away from the wire came on gamely and ran the favorite close for second money moneyIn money In the first race Burns Waterhouse Warehouse started for the first time of the meeting their colors being up on Excursion To a good start Willie Martin sent Ailyer Bailer to the lead in the first one sixteenth and not again headed Dunnes Dunes horse won in a close finish with Toluca Toucan both Martin and Clawson Lawson driving in the last one hundred and fifty yards Formero Former just beat Judge Tarvin Arvin for third money No others were prominent in the homestretch Ailyar Halyard was well backed as high a bet as 350 being registered Judge Tarvin Arvin was played on the Q T Toluca Toucan probably ran the best race she being interfered with more than once Jolly Roger ran his race t the post postIn posting In the second race there was a long delay at the post caused by Meddler then the flag fell with George H Ketcham Ketch in front Everett has got something on the barrier was the remark relative to this jockeys ability in break ¬ ing King away Ketcham Ketch had been strongly backed by Mr Drake who evidently fancies Duke Wishards Wishers horses and the place price receded from 8 to 5 to even money The leader was not caught until the last threesixteenths post when 1 Candleblack Candlewick always lying third went on and won handily from Meddler who easily got the place from Ketcham Ketch Marzolla Mazola was second the first halfmile half The twoyearolds toeholds The Ken tuckian tucking and Boney Bony Boy could never get up upDavid unpaid David Tenny Teeny laid second to Boanerges Beaneries for a mile tnd tend onesixteenth consistent then went to his saddle skirt and the pair raced thus to the last eighth post Here Barrett Barrette went to the whip on Boanerges Beaneries but Skeets Skeet Martin hunched Dunnes Dunes horse along and gradually drew away Monk Wayman Cayman was beaten before the horses had covered throequarters treasurers of a mile David Tenny Teeny opened favorite at even noney money but went to the post at 7 to 5 Boanerges Beaneries receding from 8 to 5 to even money moneyAzucena Azucena Sauce proved the surprise of the day Her last performance was July 2 when she carrying 107 pounds ran third to Elusive and Three Bars at Latonia Antonia the distance being one mile and seventy yards Marcus Cartwright Cartridge bet 60 against 750 on her and Frank White doped her out and bet 5 at 12 to 1 Bannockburn Bannock stumbled rounding the first turn and was out of it the lead being taken by Miss Gussio Gussied and St Alfonses Alfonso D Imp was third at the half Azucena Sauce fourth two lengths away but when Imp took command on the far turn Mr Longs filly went to her head and the pair raced to the betting shed where Azucena Sauce drew away and won from Imp who beat Miss Gussie Gussied lengths for the place placeRoger placer Roger B led off in the sixth race only to give way to King Bermuda and Bishop Reed who formed the front rank up the backstretch with Don Quixote right there So they ran to the turn for home where Thorpe got in next to the rails soon had King Bermuda safe and when Bishop Reed came up had enough left to just win by hard punching from Rodegaps Bodegas horse King Bermuda third thirdLowry third Lowry Lowery Marks a native of Springfield Mass and one of the old guard of eastern sports dropped in on his way west He is fresh from Peoria and spoke enthusiastically of the record breaking season of year considered perform ¬ ance Vance of Star Pointer the fast race of Bumps and the wonderful speed shown by a new three year old Marks was in England during Tod Todd Sloans Slogans successful career Said he Every j day one would see in the papers Sloan the American again saved the bookmakers j This by winning on a long shot that English jockeys had given up One day at Liverpool Tod Todd rode four times and failed to win a race Still for one ride that on Keenan he was highly complimented The favorite was a twoyearold toehold that Keenan was giving thirty or forty pounds and the youngster at once got so far away that a run ¬ away race went up But Tod Todd kept at work and made a tight thing of it at the finish all other horses being beaten off Good boy yelled an English racing expert Good boy You cer Acer ¬ tainly taxingly got a stone 14 pounds more out of Keenan than any of our lads and we know the horse well I do not think on St Cloud for the Cambridgeshire Cambridge Sloan could have lost by over an inch I had 30 on at 20 to 1 and of course may be prejudiced The Americans visiting in London won largely on Sloans Slogans vic ¬ tories Gentlemen who never go near a race course would walk into a commi commie sion scion shop pool room in town and leave an order to bet money on Tods Toads mounts They got much the best of the odds this way because light backing at the track would cause the price to lengthen Lowry Lowery Marks is the man who once bet the waiter in a restaurant a five dollar bill that the fish served was not a sea bass and when the proprietor decided against him exclaimed Talk of hardluct hardly how about this Why I had every other kind of fish in the sea arunning running for me meThe meTe The racing situation as concerns the opening of the west side tracks at Hawthorne and
