HAWTHORNES HAWTHORNS REOPJENING REOPENING Hawthorne opened its gates for the first time since the spring of 1895 and the large crowd present seemed glad to get back to a race track which in many ways is one of the best in the west Particularly were the horsemen pleased John Huffman said Here is as good soil ts ever a racehorse set foot on the water is splendid the stabling of the best As for me I would like to race here until the snow flies W P Maxwell came up from St Louis to spend the day and superintend the arrangements for his starting machine machineCapt machine Capt Caput J H Rees was installed presiding judge his associate being Secretary Harrj Harry Kuhl Kohl W F Bruen Braun filled the position of starter There were fourteen bookmakers doing business in the big ring The day was a perfect one for racing Everything about the place was as clean as a whistle and newc new mers ers especially admired the paddock paddockThe paddock The first race being voted a wnlkover walkover for Lady Ellerslie Wellesley Licalzis Localism filly opened at 1 to 2 and went to the post at 11 to 20 She won as he pleased lying second to Dave Waldo Weald for keeighths eyesight Storm King was third to the last sixteenth where Pacemalerwho Pacemaker had been last up the back stretch got up and beat him for third money H Shields on Storm King fiddled for a running start but Bruen Braun said nay nay and when Storm King finally got up and put his hose against the barrier off went the trigger and the horses got away to a perfect start startHolland Holland fussed around the post and when he finally got ready the netting went up to a straggling start T Burns on Capsicum and J Reiff Riff on Doremus Dorms being left standing still at the post The race was a match between Boney Bony Boy and Ailyar Halyard the pair being always in front Holland was always third In a drive from the last eighth to the wire W Martin on Ailyar Halyard bore Rose on Boney Bony Boy close in on the rails and this had much to do with the winning of the favorite Gay Parisienne Parisian and Barney Saal Sal were the only horses outside those placed to make a showing Roses claim of foul was not allowed by Capt Caput Reas Areas ReasThe Breathe The starter left Libertine and Dare II stand ¬ ing King at the post in the handicap but both horses ran over the course and finishing as close to the leader as when they started showed that the weights were well assigned Hugh Penny off in front was not headed and Fervor second away always held his position Barring the pair left the field was well bunched at the far turn where David Tenny Teeny and Dr Sheppard were fighting for third place David Tenny Teeny whose price had advanced from 3 up to 6 to 1 stopped as if short at the paddock and Dr Sheppard had quit before reaching this point Cherry Leaf and Traverser Traverse had a hot drive for the third money and Bradleys Bradley horse won by a few inches The horses being all on their stride and all abreast Bruen Braun touched off his machine for the fourth race the action being provocative of cheers from the occupants of the grandstand Daisy F at once took command and not headed won with a bit of urging on the end Heigh High Ho was always second until the last quarter rrough rough which Lizzie Tizzies Cavalier beat her in a hard drive Uarda Guardia was in a good position when at the first quarter she was bumped and knocked back she finished fourth Elidad Elided and Prince Blazes were never within 50 yards of the fifth horse after fiveeighths firefights had been covered Meddler as usual acting badly and refusing to come up although once he joined hid horses was left standing still in the fifth race while Harry Gaines got caught in the webbing Del Paso II was last of the strung out bunch of which Bishop Reed took command and ted to the far turn where Newsgatherer Newscaster headed him and never in trouble won the race from Tit for Tat who couldnt couldn't get up until close in The finish for third money was apparently between Caius Carious and Reuben Rowett Rowe when in the last twentyfive twenty yards along came Treachery and beat them both bothThe bottle The crowd good naturedly maturely accepted the new order of things as to starting the horses and buckled in tobetting objecting on the sixth race after which the people returned to town with plenty to talk about There was certainly plenty of life and air at Hawthorne The field in the last race was probably larger in number than any known this season yet Mr Bruen Braun got the horses off nearly aligned across the track Loyaletta Loyalty took a spurt and led to the home ¬ stretch turn Bryan always second Nat P third and Carrie F well up Loyaletta Loyalty bolted at the head of the straight where Kiley Kelley took Nat P to the inside rail and coming on the long shot won the race well in hand from Bryan There was a sixhorhe saxhorn neck finish for third money gained by Loneta Loretta Validoar Valid broke down and threw his jockey H Williams Max Blumenthal Lumen lost 600 to the race through laying 100 to 1 op Nat P and Marcus Cartwright Cartridge also paid out more than he took in The horse started at Roby Robby last spring and on his best races figured to have a chance j The feature of the day was the trial of the correct system of starting horses from a gate When Libertine and Dare II were left at the post there was a storm of mingled applause and hisses Mr Bruen Braun had plainly yelled come on yet J Reiff Riff and McNickle Canticle tarried either wilfully or because they could not get their
