THE KENTUCKIANS HANDICAP HANDICAPA HANDICAP A refinement of Saratoga weather peculiar to Chicago was enjoyed by an immense crowd at Harlem It was Ladies Day and the fair sex was present in force The handicap at five furlongs for twoyearolds toeholds promised well although as at her previous start L EzelPs Bezels Espionage seemed to be anchored by her 111 pounds The race proved to be a walkover for The Kentuckian who although Tulla Tulle Fonso Fonts was oft in front went out at once and by the time the straight was made had everything beaten and galloped to the wire Espionage was close up to the last eighth and there died a natural death Guess Me stayed in company the first threeeighths Espionage and Guess Me were passed close in by Sevens who ran third Tulla Tulle Fonso Fonts was easily second Mazo Matzo ran a bad race The others were never prominent prominentMr prominent Mr Dwyer got the bad acting lot of maiden twoyearold toehold fillies in the first race off to a fair start after many breakaways at which Menda Mend ¬ cious ious ran farthest and finally threw her jockey Clerico Cleric who at once remounted The Crawfish showing well at the breakaways was in front when the flag fell but Fleeting Ray ran to and stopped her both giving it up in the first quarter Rosa Masso Mass was third at the first eighth but Lilly soon got her in front and not afterwards in trouble she won handily At the finish Nellie Fonso Fonts came through and got the place from Flirtation who was never worse than fourth The favorite was fifth at the start but taken to the rails at the bend for home she was squeezed in at the last eighth and her chance destroyed Charmante Chairman finished well up Oscars Joy ran his race at the post and Pella Ella B got none the better of them themMax stemma Max Blumenthal Lumen laid 3 to 5 the highest price against George H Ketcham Ketch said by everybody to have struck a soft spot and keeping on as the price lowered bet 1000 against 2000 that little J Reiff Riff would get mixed up in so large a field The favorite was in the bunch after an eighth had been traversed but the small jockey kept him on the extreme outside and by the time the betting ring was passed the race was over George H Ketcham Ketch winning easily Fremont was the leader until the last sixteenth but La Salle Sale favorite for place at 5 to 5 was second in a drive while Ed Corrigans Corrigan cook P Buggy furnished in Orderly the third horse horseEddie horsed Eddie Burke won a most remarkable race in the last jump Boanerges Beaneries WHS VHS in front passing the stand but Found assumed command at the turn and led to the last 150 yards Dr Shep Sheep pard pared and Boanerges Beaneries rased erased side and side to the middle of the upper turn where the latter quit Dr Sheppard struck the straight with Tommy j Burns riding for dear life to catch Found some i lengths in the lead Taking the short road the favorite had Huffmans Huffman filly beaten at the last sixteenth and Burns was sitting still Eddie Burke had been nicely rated along by Kitley Kirtle up the back stretch but he was always within striking distance of the favorite He came fast in the home stretch and at the last fifty yards was nose and tail with Dr Sheppard Eddie Burke then being on the outside Close in Dr Shep Sheep ¬ pard pared came away from the inside rail and through the small opening Kitley Kirtle shot Eddie Burke winning by the closest of margins It was understood that the Iowa plunger was down for 6000 on Dr Sheppard The time was remarkably fast considering the condition of the track trackThe track The surprise of the meeting was the defeat of Mary Black by Storm King The race developed into a match between the pair before a quarter had been run but the favorite appeared to hold the other safe rounding the bend fur home she being several lengths to the good Little Reiff Riff here took Mary Black so wide while Storm King hugged the inside rail that a furlong fur ¬ ther ether along the pair were nearly on even terms Now Mary Black swerved to the inside and by the time Storm King came up it was all Reiff Riff could do to keep her from fouling him and Reiff Riff could not use his whip So Storm King won handily St Alfonses Alfonso D was a very bad third thirdLittle hairsplitter Little J Raiff Riff showed how he can use a whip when he kept the fainthearted Inconstancy going at the finish when she gave evidence of lying down Tonto Onto had taken the lead accom Tacoma ¬ panied paned by Terranet Errant to an excellent start and at the half mile ground on the back stretch Pepper had shot his bolt at about the same time as Tonto Onto when Inconstancy moved to the front attended by Chugnut Chung and quickly opened a big gap Reiff Riff refused to repeat his mistake on Mary Black and swung in close to the inside rails When apparently he had nothing to beat but Chugnut Chung and having him safe along came Martin K with a great burst of speed and tried to go through between Inconstancy and Chug ¬ nut Reiff Riff closed in and forced Martin K to the outside thus taking Inconstancy home a winner The Tory heavily backed was never dangerous there being several horses tangled up on the back stretch stretchDave stretchable Dave Waldo Weald was sold for 3100 to Dr J F Meffert Effort of Kansas City The sale took place as advertised at 130 p m in the

Hart announced that Colonel Clark guaranteed that any man who should buy Dave Waldo Weald could start him when and where he chose Mr Wymore had before this stated that the firm of Barnes Wymore Daly Dally could undoubtedly go on racing Dave Waldo Weald as Colonel Clark had declared himself satisfied that the owners had had nothing to do with training the horse and threw the blame of his bad performance on Trainer Glasscock Glass But said Mr Wymore we stand as well as any other folks down where we live in Missouri and will not take a chance of being called hard names through the vagaries
