BOANKRGES BACKREST BEATENT BEATEN The racing at Lakeside yesterday was fall of surprises and after the windup it was discov disco ¬ ered erred that only two favorites had scored con ¬ sequently sequent the ring muse have had a winning day It was hit hard however over the victory of Storm King and as Boanerges Beaneries the 1 to 2 favorite was not in the first three in his race the bookies had to pay out all ways from the pack on that event The defeat of Boanerges Beaneries was one of the greatest surprises seen at the present meeting The colt had won his two previous races and in both showed he was cherry ripe and finished off by himself with his rider pull ¬ ing King bis bias head sideways sidewaysBoanerges sideways Boanerges Beaneries was entered in the second race which was at 1 116 miles and the appearanc appearance of his name in the entries scared a majority of the other horses out There were eighteen original entries but the field was scratched down to seven starters This made it look all the easier for the McGnigau Michigan castoil Castile and when 1 to 2 was posted against him there was a wild rush to get aboard All of the big bettors were dowr dower Hnd Hand Jockey Bloss Loss thought it was so good th bought himself a bunch of tickets also The pikers pickers and followers of Burns of course had their change on Dr Sheppard and congratulated themselves over securing the liberal price of j 4 to I which was freely offered Topmast was held at 45 to 1 and it was write your own ticket on the others othersAt others At the first break starter Dwyer sent the field away to a beautiful start and Boanerges Beaneries soon weut wet to the front He could not outrun Dr Shoppard Sheppard though and passing the stand the pair were racing like a team two and a half lengths in front of the others Around the first turn and down the backstretch they remained on even terms though it looked like Boanerges Beaneries was running the easier of the two After pass ¬ ing King the half mile post and when the pair were making the far turn Burns evidently seeing that his chestnut opponent had the better of it resorted to foul tactics and as he was on the outside and Boanerges Beaneries was on the rail Burns had an opportunity to shut the latter off which he did very cleverly Bloss Loss was obliged to pull his mount almost to a walk to avoid being thrown Dr Sheppard who then had clear sailing went on about his business and whip ¬ ped peed out beat Topmast threequarters treasurers of a length Boanerges Beaneries could never recover after the interference and finished fourth a length and a half behind Lucid Judge Clark ques quest ¬ tioned toned Bloss Loss but never said a word to Burns BurnsAlthough Breakthrough Although only five started in the fourth a dash of a mile it was the smartest betting race of the day Al Fresco was favorite backed from 6 to 5 down to even money Timemaker Tidemark with Burns up was second choice closing at 11 to 5 There was at one time 2 to 1 against the latter The Devil was well played at threes and Boney Bony Boy who beat Frank Bell Saturday and had one days rest because there was no racing Sunday was backed down a point from etol extol The race was a corking good one and furnished the most exciting finish of the day Timemaker Tidemark and Al Fresco hard driven the entire length of the stretch finished lapped on EJ Boy was away in front and made the ruling to the stretch where there was a general closing up Timemaker Tidemark was first to pass Boney Bony Boy and three sixteenths ou the was clear of the others but at the eighth post Al Fresco challenged him and for an instant looked like the winner Burns though had something in reserve and with a powerful effort went at Timemaker Tidemark hammer and tongs The Schorr Scorer colt responded gamely and drew away from Al Fresco like a flash The latter tried ha 1 gut up agau ague fc t could not quite makft malt it and when the wire was reached Timemaker Tidemark was three quarters of a length to the good goodThe Goethe The sport opened with a five and a half fur long race and thirteen started Virgie Virile Dixon was a false favorite at 7 to 5 while Lady Juliet who looked a good thing on paper was always as good as 5 to 1 The latter is a noted bad actor but starter Dwyer had little or no trouble with her The filly broke third and going right on to the front won all the way from Hes Hess ¬ ter tear who got the place without an effort effortAndes effeteness Andes looked the best in the fivefurlong riverfront 2 yearcld earl race and was made an oddson godson choice at 7 to 10 He won but was hard pressed by Gold Fox who had a very rough journey and ran a very game race from the head of the stretch home homeThe homestead The fifth race
