The Lawrence .Realization, richest of American Stakes for three-year-olds, and the second half" of the Double Event for two-year-olds, were the magnets that attracted thirty thousand persons to the beautiful Sheepshead Itay race course of the Coney Island Jockey Club on Its closing day. The occasion was sentimentally and, above all, financially joyous. With the solitary exception of Azelina, every winner was heavily supported by the talent and public alike. The sport was voted grand and the weather glorious. Just before the fifth race the spectators were treated to a pyrotechnic display, which preceded a cooling rain fall that gratefully tempered the heat. Diamond Jim Bradys 5,000 Accountant, ridden by Jack Martin, vanquished a brilliant field ot horses of his own age in the big race of the day over the trying course of one mile and five furlongs. Ills owner won out his purchase price in wagers alone. Indeed it is said that the corpulent New Yorker, sent in a 0,000 commission on the aptly named Filegrane Reckon colt and then hied himself to a closet in the rear of the grandstand and stayed securely locked in while the race was being run. The winner was always close to the early leaders and at the half headed Ormondale, drawing out into a clear lead on the turn and was only meanced right at tho end by the wonderfully improved Entree. Miller rode Bulls Eye into a close third. Ormondale, which showed less stamina tl!iuiisn;il, was done at the mile.- In the second part of the Double Event, Water Tearl rehabilitated himself grandly and convincingly and showed that he is still at the top of the heap in ,the two-year-old division.

The steeplechase race sustained interest from start to finish and was won in a truly run race by Tom Cogan. The Woodlands-bred Azelina beat some fast selling plater in the sprint. Rye again brought the money home for the impoverished Tammany "push," and Onntas asserted his superior class in n hard fought victory over the grass course in the hist Rice. George W. Langdon has engaged jockey W. Knapp to ride Klip Flap in all her engagements tills season. E. It. Thomas marked a renewal of interest in racing In a sensational way by acquiring yesterday a half interest in the two great two-vear-olds Water Pearl and Charles Edward for 0,000, and it is reported on good authority that the former owner of the great Hermis more than won out the purchase price on Water Pearls victory in todays Double Event. Alex Shields has voluntarily withdrawn his horse Go Between from the Brighton Handicap, the richest of the trio of famous mile and a quarter handicaps. This was done in order to avoid the entailing any further action on the part of the Stewards of the Jockey Club in the event of a new protest arising regarding the eligibility of the Meddler live-year old. The scratching of the great little horse is keenly deplored in turf circles generally. Among horsemen the opinion prevails almost uiiautmously that the Suburban winner would have but 111 tie trouble annexing the rich Commonwealth Handicap, won by Sir Hiion, had he been allowed to start. J. E. Maddens three-year-old. The Quail, who has since the shelving of Burgomaster, been acclaimed the best of his age, and who was thought to have a mortgage on the Realization for several weeks, hit hlmseir in his last workout, cutting a deep gash on his right hind ankle. This explains his absence from the Lawrence Realization. There were exclamations of surprise at the appearance of Oran when lie paraded to the post in the second half of the Double Event. The brilliant Ossary colt, thin and dwarfed lesides the gigantic trio of opponents. Water Pearl, Peter Pan and Superman, looked as if he had been drawn through a knothole, only a wraith of the former sturdy and virile youngster that achieved so many important victories of late.
