LONG SHOTS AT HAWTHORNE As the Irishman would say it was a soft day at Hawthorne The overcast sky of noou noun turned loose a mist which when the horses were at the post for the first race changed to a drizz drizzle ¬ ling rain But the attendance was the average one and eighteen regular and two field book ¬ makers were kept busy The track was good as tLe tale rain soaked it nicely without placing uoon upon the surface a sheet of water The wind fresh ¬ ened denned from a gentle breeze to one that would have sent a schooner yacht flying and umbrellas overcoats and wraps were handy articles to have haveAch halvah Ach Bach delayed the start for the opening race but finally Thorpe came from behind with a bulge and Ach Bach led the pack after passing Native Sonto Onto the last 150 yards where he stopped dead as did also Native Son who had tagged him all the way Ganace Glance in the middle of the bunch on the turn was repeatedly bumped in the home stretch but at the last eighth McNickle Canticle found a hole near the inside jpjiJ and dodging across the track he brought the favorite homo the winner in a drive from Mr Johnson who was lucky to beat Doremus Dorms a colt that made a strong bid in the last few strides stridesOld strides Old Abuse the winner of many consecutive races acted upon the entries for the second race like a swan among a flock of ducks and of the number of owners represented on the card eleven out of seventeen declined the issue of a battle with the crack sprinter of Foster Bros Brows The others might as well have kept their horses in the barn as far as the first money wascon Watson cerned corned as Abuse went to the front with a mar ¬ velous villous burst of speed as Bruen Braun touched off his machine and Mary Black try as she would Culd Could never catch him although she finished close up and forced the favorite to mark 1 141 upon the watch Still Abuse was hard held all the way by Bloss Loss Belle of Memphis finished well up to Mary Black after making the back stretch in the rear division Sorrow also ran a go d race which can not be said of the others wLo Lo were beaten away off offAgain offering Again did Harry Kuhl Kohl in a handicap having eight starters furnish an adjustment of weights so equitable that the betting opened 3 to 1 take your pick Dr Sheppard David Tenny Teeny and Cherry Leaf Soon the first and last named went up but Lucky Alphonse Alphorns kept bis bias hold and landed the post favorite at 13 to 5 Between the second and third races a heavy shower had rendered the track heavy and the play on the handicap was general the public settling on Her Favor carrying the popular J Rein0 An unfortunate start left Her Favor standing still at the post much to the disgust of many high rollers notably Red Doc who had S OO on John Rodegaps Bodegas unlucky filly Plan ¬ tain stain at once went to the front and throughout led the band until the last few strides where Candelaria Candelabra came from the rear Seaton Eaton Vir Vr ¬ ginia gina Bradleys Bradley stable boy on Plantain prob probe ¬ ably thought he had the race won and was not watching the rail along which J McDonald rought brought the winner and so got nipped and V first past the judges by a head only The DiTrmuring Distrusting in the grand stand occasioned by the accident to Her Favor precluded any idea of a general interest in even so fine a finish but the contest was worth going miles to see Dr Sheppard and David Tenny Teeny were closely behind Plantain until the homestretch was made wh = re the Doctor cried Peccavi Peccaries and Cherry Leaf took his place The favorite and the last t ai ad ij orse Morse were en nearly even terms with Pian Apian am at the final sixteenth but both here cracksd cracks and Bradleys Bradley long shot was finishing LIB ss when Candelaria Candelabra came up Can dolaria solaria was behind the bunch with his head high in air and only Parole dOr doer who never bad a chance farther back as the half mile ground was passed J McDonald rode a great race on the recent purchase of Alex Coving ton who by this coup shows that a former jockey may be a good horseman horsemanThe horseman The one and onequarter conjecturer miles dash was the dump of the meeting it being won by Gov Go ¬ ernor senor Sheehan who went to the post at 13 to 1 it was September 13 by the way while up and down the valley came the outsiders Connie Lee for place and Pete Kitchen to show Morte Mote Fonse Fosse the second choice ran fourth while Teutonna Teutonic the favorite was beaten a six ¬ teenth tenth Collins had gone to the lead as the barrier arose with Pete Kitchen second these horses being clear of the bunch at toe judges stand The start had been a good one for all but Sutton and why should not an Irishmans Irishman horse meet with ill luck when posted as his colors are Eschscholtzia white cap 1 Col Cool ¬ lins liens threatened up the backstretch to finish alone but on the upper turn Connie Lee got him and Dr Rowells Rowels well backed gelding stopped to a walk Governor Sbeehan Sheehan now moved up from the rear and Connie Lees lead was quickly reduced Governor Sheehan had the race won at the sixteenth inside the straight from which point he galloped home the easiest of winners all behind him finishing Indian file fileTte Gillette Tte Tate sky was clearing in the west and the drizzle had ceased as the dozen hounds left the post abreast for the fifth race Sydney Pagets Pages sky bluebrown bluebonnet cap showed to the front for the first time in Chicago and his horse Ruskin led all the way and won as he pleased Canova Canoga and the backed up favor ¬ ite bite Marcato Mercator had a tight time of it for the place Marcato Mercator securing the second money The first three had for the last threeeighths been many lengths ahead of the bunch led by Kings High ¬ way The latter was passed at the finish by Moch Mooch the others beaten off Revenge Dare up at the eighth post postAnother postmaster Another Waterloo came for the speculator when Barabbas Arabians led all the way in the last race and Galenas Galena beat the favorite Monadour Monad for the place The latter had been heavily backed by the public but it is doubtful whether the Dunne following lost on the filly by Troubadour out of Mona as smart men would naturally j stay off at so short a price as the 7 to 5 offered Monadour Monad bucked like a broncho bronco at the post and ineffectually tried to kick the horses hear i her She and Willie Howard strongly backed got off right behind Barabbas Arabians and until close home the only contender in the race was Calchas Caliches Etta P another filly to carry con ¬ siderable sidereal wise money pulled up in the rear with Willie Howard Teutons Stetsons and Stuttgart All others were reasonably close on the end endThe menthe The judges questioned Fremont Sloan as to the wonderful impiovement improvement of Ruskin and the trainer explained that at the
