Bradleys Bradley Second Chance was knocked from 60 down to 20 to 1 and flattered his sup ¬ porters when at the last eighth he was close to C H Whelan Wheelman Billy Fischer however did nothing Aunt Mary was always the favorite and to a fair start after considerable delay she took command and opened abig big gap on the upper turn and into the homestretch Soon she showed a disposition to jump the outside fence and as Beauchamp Beach was unable to control her her chance was destroyed before the betting ringwas runways reached C H Whelan Wheelman always sec ¬ ond bond now took the lead and won whipped out from the last sixteenth post from Treeby Trebly who was hurried by Sugar Cane CaneEspionage Concessionaire Espionage improved wonderfully over her last race and getting off in front for the sec ¬ ond bond race was aided by a bumping match be ¬ hind which destroyed the chances of Jolly Ro he was lengths behind all others except B er rounding the upper turn and Survivor Bloss Loss had the favorite in his lap all the way and when Harry Nutter Mutter came to her at the last sixteenth she drew away and won as she pleased from Survivor who ran a remarkable race and nipped Harry Nutter Mutter for the place Our Nellie was second up the backstretch and finished well up fourth Sea Lion looked dangerous the first half but quit and finished fifth several lengths back of Our Nellie NellieThe Nellie The crowd warmed up and peculation was brisk on ths this fonfb confab rac race about which there were nearly as maay may tips as there were starters Uarda Guardia was always the favorite and she would have won but for interference on the first turn It appears that latter day jockeys are mostly bred from drivers of vans and beer wagons so commonly seen cutting off trolley and cable cars and therefore they cannot be blamed for getting in tha than way The start was delayed be ¬ cause of the bad actions of Lena who finally was placed by the starter on the outside rail where there was plenty of room When the field was dispatched Hampden Hempen was in the rear as also Tom Calvert Culvert The latter stayed where he was Around into the backstretch Moncreith Noncredit Mar cato Lena was the order of the leaders Mar cato soon took command but was dispossessed by Babieca Barbican Wonderfnll Wonderfully this horse was beaten off at his last start who led to the last eighth post Moncreith Noncredit held second position at the turn for home but died coming home he has always been considered a stretch runner Lena was third and Hampden Hempen fourth A rally at this spot where Babieca Barbican disappeared showed Lena in front and apparently winning when from the rear came Prince Blazes and Uarda Guardia racing over horses and they ran first and second in a driving finish Lena third thirdA third A sensation was furnished by W B Sink when his colors came home first on Alvarado Allargando II who finished alone in the hurdle race Once the Liverpool Grand National Steeplechase was won by a comparatively untried horse Vol Viol ¬ uptuary upturn and ever since it has been the fashion to send a fast horse over tha than hurdles taking a chance that he will jump in which event he must beat the cattle commonly known as hurdle horses So here the tip was that if Alvarado Allargando II got safely over the first hurdle he would win His price was as long as 8 to 1 but he went to the post at 4 to 1 The smoke held in by the lowering clouds threatened darkness and Judge Rees allowed less time than usual for bookmak bookmark ing King and as the horses delayed the start
