UPSETS AT LAKESIDE There was excitement galore at Lakeside yes ¬ terday tray Things started out with a whoop in the first race and from that time on happenings that furnished material for all kinds of gossip wore plentiful plentifulPerhaps plentiful Perhaps one of the rankest bits of foul riding ever witnessed on the local tracks took place in the first race Burns on Ordnung Cordoning and H Mar ¬ tin on Goal Runner fought each other from tho thou head of the stretch to the wire That a dis dais ¬ qualification would follow was a certainty Colonel Clark was in the stand But if the Colonel aver overlooked a chance to make a grandstand play he certainly did in this in ¬ stance stanceGoal stance Goal Rnnner after Martin had resorted to all the foul tactics in the book beat Ordnuug Redbug by a uose use Burns on the latter had been doing his share of fouling That is he locked legs with Martin and brought several other tricks into play Still Tommy with his perpetual smile had nerve enough to claim a foul and got away with iVgp IV He had a shade the better of Mar ¬ tin wo die latter seemed to be the one that started the fouling by carrying Ordnung Cordoning out on the stretch turn This Martin did but ho claims that Burns started the foul work at tho thou post Skeets Skeet claims that no matter what position he would take at the cost Burns would follow him and get into his way just as though it was his mission to get Goal Runner beaten It was right enough that the latter should be dis dais ¬ qualified but had the judge set both horses back the decision would have met with ap ¬ proval provable Such foul riding is a bad thing on any track and unless it is stopped at once may re ¬ sult Sault in loss of life lifeOrdnung lifer Ordnung Cordoning coupled with Falcon Light was a 0 to 5 favorite and Gold Runner was one of tho thou Ryan good things Both were heavily played at J the race created no end of excitement excitementThe excitement The Ryan party came right back with another hot one in the second race It was at one mile and twenty yards and had eighteen starters They sent Dunois Dubois to the post and it certainly looked as though he far outclassed the bunch Skeets Skeet Martin had the mount and despite the size of the field tho thou colt was backed down to 6 to 5 and less That Dunois Dubois was far tho thou best and bad luck only kept his backers from cash ¬ ing King their tickets hardly puts it strong enough It was a case of Burns and Martin again as it was in the first race and although Burns did not win he kept Martin from doing so and was almost the cause of a serious accident accidentMilwaukee accident Milwaukee on which Burns had the mount and Dunois Dubois broke together Milwaukee was on the outside of Dunois Dubois and Burns proceeded to carry him across to the rail A nasty mixup mix followed and it was only a miracle that kept Dunois Dubois from going down By this time he was far back and seemed hopelessly beaten Martin however set sail after the leaders and to the surprise of everybody was three lengths in front of the field three fui Fuji longs from home The colt must have run the quarter down the back stretch in record time and this effort naturally had a telling effect At the eighth post along caao cacao vflpiataria and in a terrific drive from ther9u the wire got the verdict by a very nar nard ¬ row margin marginThe marinate The defeat of Dunois Dubois was a hard blow to the talent and they of course tried to get even on Al Fresco This colt looked almost a certainty and with Burns up 1 to 2 was a royal price The big players unloaded and going to the post at 2 to 5 was tho thou best price against the Water ¬ melon Stables colt When he was beaten there seldom before was seen so many tore heads on Lakeside racetrack The Devil turned the irtrk dirt and this ccusoled cusped many Ho was beaten easily by Al Fresco the last time they met and this added more fuel to the already blazing flame flameTho flamethrower Tho Theo doings previous tolwhat towboat happened in tho thou fourth race were mild in comparison It was another meeting between Imp and Macy Marcy and judging fiom Fiona tho thou easy way iu which Macy Marcy had defeated the black filly last Saturday it did not seem that she had a probable chance of beating the Schorr Scorer horso hors Naturally Macy Marcy was favorite at the short odds of 7 to 10 There was a heavy aggregate of money boron him at that price The pikers pickers stuck to Imp and took 3 to 2 against her for many a two spot The amount of speed Imp had was surprising and there was never a spot in the road that she did not hold the race safe She finished five open lengths in front of Macy Marcy and was pulled almost to a walk Her suddon sudden awakening was so astonishing that after pikers pickers got through cheering one could hear a pin drop around the judges stand The public thought sure Col Cool Clark would say something and all were eager to hear what it was going to be but to the surprise of almost every racegoer racketeer that knows the judge he had nothing to say but all right Imp first Macy Marcy second Storm King third Time 1551 1551The The fifth face wont to OConnell O'Connell the favorite and the sixth which was run in the dark re ¬ sulted silted in a nose victory for Tenole Ennoble with Diggs Digs in the place
