getting the horses away quickly The drops of rain began to fall about the time of the start of the third race and when Traverser Traverse and his brethren went to the post the soil of the track was somewhat slippery The features of the day was the ride of Thorpe on Morte Mote Fonse Fosse and that of J Reiff Riff onBabieca Bobbie onBabiecaSauterne Sauterne owned by Wood Hoffman proved to be a good thing The parties who were to put the money on at the track did not fancy the price and this advanced so that the pool rooms were undoubtedly plucked The horse whose class was high as a two and threeyearold was never in trouble and won with a little shaking up at the finish Bryan was fourth up the back stretch and Millie M still further away but wse wise horses had a tight race for the place Millie M finishing second Dr Sharp came very fast at the finish Cosmos was well backed Old Libertine took a notion to run and like many another aged campaigner may fancy a small boy whose light hands are unable to yank a horse about He opened an equal favor ¬ ite bite at 6 to 5 with Pat Dunnes Dunes Official but ad ¬ vanced vance to 8 to 5 the other dropping to even money At the far turn Libertine raced away from his field and won as he pleased The Tory beating Cutter in a drive for the place Official never worse than fourth was never better than third Chugnut Chung raced in the lead for three eighths and Brother Fred was well up for three quarters quartersBabieca quarters Babieca Barbican failing to come to the scratch de ¬ layed clayed still further a start which Mr Dwyor Dwyer found hard
