threeyearolds penalties and allowances J worth to the winner 950 to the second 200 to the third 100 The day was a beautiful one with clear sky and bracing air The track was fairly good goodDon godson Don Quixote opening at 3 to 5 advanced to even money and settled at 9 to 10 Kid Wei Weir ler leer while he bets heavily in tLe tale local ring on other horses than his own wagers nothing on the latter at the track Don Quixote at once went to the front and with Mary Black two lengths away L Reiff Riff showing a disposition to wait second passed the judges running well in hand Daisy F was third and George Lee fourth as the backstretch was made At the half mile ground Mary Black had moved alongside the favorite and the others closing the quartet could have been covered with a blanket rounding the turn and into the straight Soon Reiff Riff sent Mary Black along and the race li licame Liam came a hot one Mary Black being beaten at Sne Sane final eighth Don Quixote had only the shortest of breathing spells before Daisy F came with a rush and headed him But she never could shake him off and when within fifty yards of the wire Caywood Cawed who had waited patiently called on Don Quixote this sterling and game threeyearold handled his weight like a feather and shaking his head landed first home from the shoulders out The opinion was advanced that Skoets Sots Martin made a weak finish on Daisy F but whether or not this is true Don Quixote is a sure enough racehorse In a hard drive George Lee finish ¬ ing King four lengths behind Daisy F got the third money moneyJinks money Jinks on the strength of some railbird jailbird gossip as to a workout a few days ago when the filly shot at by backbiters as already having won the first money in the stallion stakes of next Saturday was

Henna winning by six lengths The favorite stopping or being pulled up landed an open length better than Andes he closely pursued by Antiquary and Boney Bony Boy It wat swat said that Pat Dunne had done little with Jinks since the mud came Fontainebleu Containable ran away when going to the post and covered a quarter before being stopped Everett then allowed his horse to be led back in a walk thus delaying the starts One of the hot teal tips lately circulated was that on Nat P who was knocked from 60 down to 15 to 1 Dr Rowell Roswell had a bet down and said hat Nat PwMch he had made into a racehorse Bar as a yearling having had his hip broken TSa Tsai worked better than any horse at Haw ¬ thorne thorn Saturday last then carrying 125 pounds After Lady Juliet for ten minutes refused to join the field Judge Rees rang his bell and at once Bruen Braun touched oft the machine leaving not only Lady Juliet but also Nat P at the post Aunt Mary and Con Reagan raced in the lead to the homestretch Amanda lying third A general closing up at the last eighth and the leaders stopped so that Amanda seemed to b winning she being in the center of the track A sixteenth further along Bishop Reed and Greyhurst Greyhounds came on together on the extreme outside the former winning with much to spare while Greyhurst Greyhounds just beat Amanda All others were several lengths away Sugar Cane made a good showing but was cut off on the turn turnThe turtle The long distance race 1J miles selling was a great betting affair and Prince Blazes went to the post the favorite at 13 to 5 He was never near enough to the leaders for them to realize that he was in the race although his position was third at the last quarter where Forte and Plantain the only horses ever in front were yet keeping the spectators guessing as to the win ¬ ner near Plantain had gone to the front at the ris Kris ¬ ing King of the gate and he passed the judges several lengths in the lead of Sunburst Hosi Hoi and Beth ¬ lehem Lethe Star being next Hell surely come back the pace is too hot said the horsemen But when a mile had been covered Bradleys Bradley horse was four lengths better than Forte and as the latter gained on him it was seen that all the others were already beaten Prince Blazes last at the first half now came to the front of the bunch behind Forte as here Bethlehem Star had enough Sardonic was moving through from the rear Soon after making the home ¬ stretch Forte outran Plantain and he widened the gap at every stride pulling up alone Wins low gave Plantain a great fight for the place and landed third lengths better than Sardonic and Bethlehem Star who beat Prince Blazes Paul Kauvar Kava and Valid were at the last six ¬ teenth tenth post pulled up Pat Dunne has finally found a style of race fitting the name of his most erratic horse Forte ForteW Forte W H Roller sent Arrezzo Carrizo and Jockey Hous Hocus ¬ ton over from Canada and the pair took down the first money in the jumping race which pro ¬ voked evoked much speculation and again proved that over the sticks is a game fancied by the pub ¬ lic laic notwithstanding the declaration of some racing judges that they will not consent to pre ¬ side where such sport is carried on the weak plea being that jobs are frequent thus adver adverb ¬ tising tossing their own incapacity to discover turf thievery Corrigans Corrigan Schreiber was naturally the favorite he beiLg beige reinforced by Idolater who ridden by a namesake of Illinois Gover Grover ¬ nor ran well and finished fifth close up to the third horse Jerry Downing the old steeple ¬ chase jockey was out and bet on Corrigans Corrigan pair The bookmakers fought shy of Arrezzo Carrizo rubbing the 5 first posted but taking some money at 3 to 1 J J Carroll practically held out the winner 8 to 5 appearing on his slate although he had up 11 to 5 at the post Orderly caught some play from the ignorant they imagining his jockey Maher to be the crack eastern rider He became discouraged it was argued and so is going to ride jump ¬ ers This line of reasoning is on a par with much heard around a racetrack To an excel ¬ lent start Nobilis Mobiles bolted at once and interfered with his stable companion Proverb who knocked back finally finished fourth but never had a winning chance Michael G lastluplfhe backstretch was running fast at the finish in fact all the horses except Gypceiver Glycerine were well up The latter had gone out with Arrezzo Carrizo but Orderly passed to the front at the second jump His backers joy lasted only a moment how ¬ ever as at the far turn Arrezzo Carrizo galloped over him and Schreiber coming up fast the race was reduced to a math between the favorite and the second choice Over the last fence in the homestretch Schreiber made a bobble and Arrezzo Carrizo beat him easily Uncle Jim made up much ground in the straight straightIn straighten In the sixth race OConnell O'Connell and Silver Set raced
