Threatening weather did not keep a good crowd from attending the races at Windsor today. The track Was fast and good time was made. Peter Sterling was the only favorite to win. He ran as If he was rounding to his old-time form. The Royal Oak Farm Stake at four and one-half furlongs was the feature on the card and was won by G. W, J. Bissells brown filly, Lady Baldur. Dew of Dawn was probably best in the race. She was outpaced to the head ot the stretch, when she came fast, but was carried out by Aquiline and Anoura. This allowed Lady Baldur to come through next to the rail and win the race. Shortly before the betting commenced on the sixth race, the judges ordered the withdrawal of Alta McDonald for the reason it is reported that the colt is owned by R. L. Rogers, who was ruled off in the east last year. The judges Informed Trainer Stlckney that the colt will not be allowed to start here again.
