EDNA JACKSONS NEW TRACK RECORD. Runs Three-Quarters of a Mile In 1:12 at Buffalo Claim of Foul Not Allowed. Buffalo, N. Y., June 24. The Hayman-McCarren confederacy, which came here from New York with forty-odd horses, stirred thiugs up a bit at Kenilworth this afternoon. John J. Bogers, carrying the colors of M. L. I layman won the second race, while Master Lester which runs in the name of P. H. McCarren, made his opponents look cheap In the sixth race. Both horses were heavily backed away from the track and over Master Lesters victory a good bit of money is said to have been won. John J. Bogers was at a short price, but for part of the Master Lester commission placed in the local ring as good as 15 to 1 was obtained. Toward the close of the speculation the layers were simply swamped with Master Lester money and the betting continued until the horses oil bell rang. In the fourth race at six furlongs, Edna Jackson picked up 111 pounds and ran the distance in 1:12, which is three-fifths of a second faster than Tom McGratbs time made on June 18. In the early running Edna Jackson outfooted the siieedy Penrhyii and after racing the latter into defeat, had plenty in reserve to stall off lreens challenge in the homestretch. The third race furnished the best finish of the afternoon, Aristotle and Merrimac fighting it out the length of the homestretch with Morris outriding the apprentice Hogg anil landing Aristotle in front by a -neck. Hogg lodged a claim of foul saying that Morris had "roughed him at the furlong post. It looked as if there was a little humping, but the interference was not serious enough to have any bearing on the result. The stewards evidently took this view of the matter for Hoggs claim was not allowed. The steeplechase went to Caloorahatchee, which won by a length after a mild struggle with Bon-lire. The latter was on his good behavior and led for the major portion of the trip. He appeared all over the winner until after taking the last jump, where Caloorahatchee caught and passed him.
