Carey proved tli.it he is a borne of good class by winning the Queens County Handicap today from tlie beet horses that have gone to the post this season. oxford, with ■ slight pull in the weights and with Miller up. was a well bached favorite, while W. H. Carey, though lie had M support, wis always as good as » to 1. Clorifier took up three pounds more than he • allied in the Carter and was a lukewarm second choice. The stable connections gave W. H. Carey substantial support. Trainer Blute said there would lie "some funny figures hung out if W. H. Carey was beaten." He was a pood horse today and Mountain handled him in faultless style. When Oxford and Pretension went away tram their company on the turn, opening up a big gap, Mountain was not in the least perturbed, taking matters easily until well into t Lie stretch, when he called on V. H. Carey. The horse ran into the lead wtthoat difficulty, winning as his rider pleased. Pretension made Oxford |uit at seven furlongs, but held on himself to take second place. Good I.uek came from far hack to take third place. He should be a hard horse to heat at a longer route. Glorifier was never a real contender. W. H. Carey looms up as a great possibility for the Excelsior Handicap to be run next Friday, and for which his weight is ]1 » pounds, five pounds less than he carried today. With a good card, including the Winfield Steeple chase and the Canarsie Stakes for two year olds and great! improved weather conditions, an hmmsSMM crowd turned out. Notasulga won the Canarsie NiuW*-*. hut Master Robert, the lavonte. and what looked like her Mtt dangerous contender, had his chances destroyed when Frizette carried hiiu out on the turn. Notasulga. however, has established her claims as a filly of high quality and it is to be ex pected that Albert Hamcl aud Henry Brulatour, her owners, will be in receipt of renewed offers for her. tliough it dives not follow that the daughter of The Commoner will change hands. "Notasulga is well engaged for the mmm.h." m|1 Mr. Brulaiour Thursday evening in speaking of the offer of fl2.ooo that had been made for her. "and I would prefer lacing her for a while at lea-t. Among other engagements she is in the Futurity, and in my opinion she is one that is sun- to improve. A lilly of her size and as goad a doer as she is cannot be found every day. "Of course she only beat lillics when she raced in the Base, .i i nl I want to sec just what she will do when she meets both colts and fillies in the Canarsie. She won frees Frizette just as easily as Frizette won from her company today, and I am more and more convinced that she is all 1 had hoped lor. "In my opinion she will show locveti better advantage when Belmont i reached, for here at Aqueduct there is just a t title too much cushion to the track to suit her exactly. She wants a harder surface and I know she has not jet shown her beat. She cost. ..Uo .» and has long since paid lor herself. Ill sell, but it will be at my price and the ■gare will be named after she wins the stake Saturday." California King, the four year old gelding by Soli taire II. — Candid, making his debut through the Held, won the Winlicld Steeplechase Handicap lor Thomas Hitchcock, Jr. It am likewise the first winning mount for Nat Kay this rear.

Laudcman. the Lexington bookmaker who owns Hot Toddy and other good horses being trained by Kinrball Patterson, has arrived from Ken-lucky to leniain throughout the season.
