JJAKGLE JACKLEG TAKES THE DBEXEL DREXEL DBEXELThe Beetle The race track astronomer who allowed that the new moon would bring rain did not play as lucky as the famous almanac maker who predicted snow and hail July 4 and at Wash ¬ ington Kingston Park as elsewhere the leaves of the trees are shriveled the grass rapidly turning to straw and the pockets of the table upon which the Reverend Charles Seymour says the chappies happiest play landscape pool in the infield are baked as hard as sinkers sold at a South Clark street restaurant Under such conditions nothing but an extremely good racing card could attract the thousands who yesterday en ¬ joyed hoyed themselves in picking winners despite the efforts of Bilhil Bitchily and were joined by the twentythree twenty regular bookmakers in the game of hide and seek1 seek1For For the Drexel Stakes one mile for 3year olds worth 1970 to the winner Dave Waldo Weald Goodrich Hurly Burly Floronso Florins and Pingree Pongee refused the issue leaving as live ones Bangle Bannockburn Bannock Traverser Traverse St Callatine Palatine and Candleblack Candlewick At the opening of the betting Jweeney Weenie through misapprehension made a puzzling mistake Not knowing that Floronso Florins was scratched he cried Couple the entry meaning Pinkertons Pinkerton pair Floronso Florins and Candle black The bookmakers immediately coupled St Callatine Palatine and Candleblack Candlewick thinking it only natural to receive such an order because while these horses are owned independently both are trained by S C Hildreth Children After a few minutes of brisk betting Sweeney Serenely sang out Dont Don't couple the entry which was an obscure way of notification that something had come off wrong The pencilers pencil at once opened new sheets and sold St Callatine Palatine and Candleblack Candlewick separately The Chicago public is so well edu ed ¬ cated canted in turf betting matters that no confusion resulted where in New York Algernon Salerno had been asking What the deuce is it all about St Callatine Palatine took command and led for seven ei ghths Goths Traverser Traverse and Bangle were always close up and the others not open daylight aw ay In the final struggle Bangle drew away and Bannockburn Bannock followed the leader In a rousing finish Bangle won from Bannockburn Bannock with St Callatine Palatine third close up The others pulled up upCarter update Carter H Harrison Jr on the strength of a report that he had been bumped in the stake race won by W Overton Overtone July 14 was hopped on at even money for the first race by the talent but the bookmakers always yelled even money come and get it being partial to long shots in maiden races Tulla Tulle Fonso Fonts off in front soon opened a big gap on every ¬ thing except the favorite who was driving a quarter away from home and could never catch the flying filly she winning away off Vim and Vinegar third was attended to the last eighth by Silver Tone and Rosa Masso Mass There was a strong tip on DollieWiethoff One bookmaker who had the correct idea opened Tulla Tulle Fonso Fonts at 7 to 5 but was jeered into hoist ¬ ing King 5 to 1 A bulletin on the judges stand stated that the start would not be delayed on account of the bad actions of Vim and Vinegar Whittens Whitens colt got off well enough but is a cary fellow and when Thorpe at the upper turn cried out Look out there Vim and Vinegar started to run out outIn outing In running the second race Al Fresco laid third to Alvarado Allargando II and Charley Christy up the back stretch came on when ready and won as he pleased Alvarado Allargando II shut up in a twinkling at the turn for home Monk Wayman Cayman was never dangerous dangerousThe dangerous The absence of Azucena Sauce David Tenny Teeny and The Devil knocked all the figuring over the fourth race but Hurly Burly was established an even money favorite and justified the short odds by at once getting out and making a run ¬ away race of it after shaking off Braw Lad at the end of a threeeighths run Dr Sheppard and Dunois Dubois had a great race they running paired from the upper turn to the wire the Foster horse winning But both were beaten by Eddie Burke who together with The Elector was badly cutoff on the first turn and again at the last eighth post was squeezed out by Dr Sheppard and Dunois Dubois closing together when the unpopular Conley Coney tried to get through between Barrett Barrette and H Martin MartinMartha Martina Martha II H T Griffins highclass highlands filly of 1897 was quite overlooked as far as the fact
