The fields in subsequent races were materially reduced bv scratching. The change in the going threw form followers off and this in a measure was responsible for the fluctuation in the odds on some of the winners. The nearest that backers of favorites came to winning was when Cave Adsum got the purse in the fifth race through the disqualification of Dog Rose for fouling. Dawson, the medium ot a strong plunge by those who are commonly known as wise players, won the steeplechase from Rock Storm. Bonfire, the other starter, quit after he took three jumps and, despite iiis riders efforts, simply slowed down to a standstill and for a time refused to . move. McIIale succeeded in getting Bonfire running again, but after making a turn of the field he again stopped and was finally trotted back to the judges stand. Bonfire is now barred from starting here except In his stake engagements. When entering the homestretch in the fifth race, Dog Rose bolted to the outside and cut across in front of Cave Adsum. On complaint of jockey Brown the race was taken from Dog Rose. Cave dsum was placed first. Second money went to Sam Bernard and third to Lyndhurst,
