BONEY BONY BOY VINS INS A STAKF STACK STAKFWatery Saltwater Watery South of England sunshine was in evidence yesterday at the Harlem racetrack where everything showed the traces of the heavy rains of the preceding night and early morning The course was a sea of mud Not ¬ withstanding the free use of the blue pencil there were enough horses left in to make fields large enough to suit both the public and the bookmakers bookmakersThe bookmakers The second race one mile and twenty yards was declared off and a one mile selling race substituted substitutedThe substituted The La Grange Selling Stakes threequarters treasurers of a mile for twoj two earolds earls was up for decision and the small number of starters and their in ¬ ferior fernier quality is corroborative of the assertion often advanced by students of turf matters as to the inadvisability of racing associations giving stakes the argument being extended to a declaration that overnight handicaps make better racing than do stakes The La Grange Stakes was worth 1130 to the winner 200 to the second and 100 to the third horse Boney Bony Boy on the strength of his runaway of two miles Tuesday was held at 3 to 1 but the public play soon drove his price down to 9 to 5 Canace Cancel opened at 7 to 5 andpopped antipope up at every stage landing at 3 to 1 There was always a steady play on Mr Johnson The others ran for Sweeney Serenely presumably Canace Cancel broke quick ¬ est but in the first 100 yards Gold Fox took command and led into the home stretch Boney Bony Boy was always second and as he ran cwo co open lengths behind Gold Fox on the turn Virginia Bradley nervously exclaimed Why doesnt doesn't Rose go to the front I told him to do so Gold Fox quit at the last eighth it having been quite a contest

getting ths this horses off for the Futurity speak of record breaking as to length of time at the post Now in a stake race at Saratoga in 1885 Starter Wheatley Whitley took two hours and twentyfive twenty minutes in getting the horses away from the post I remember the race well Eddie West rode Estrella Stella and he was the only boy not fined Estrella Stella was finally left at the post The distance was five eighths of a mile and who do you suppose won the race Why Biggonet Bygone the dam of Mar timas times winner of the Futurity But this is the first time I ever heard of the breeding argu argue ¬ ment meant coming to the front in this regard It seems blood will tell in long delays at the post as elsewhere
