CHARLIE EASTMAN A BIG SURPRISE. Oman J. a Good Thing at Fort Erie Terahs Convincing Race. Buffalo, N. Y., July 20. Charlie Eastman showed a sudden return to form in the third race at Fort Erie this afternoon. He won easily from the speedy Tickle, while Laura Clay, the favorite, was practically left at the post. In the opening race Monday, when at a short price, Charlie Eastman failed to show much speed and was beaten off, Laura Clay winning. Today the Gardner colt was a keen contender all the way, although under restraint until on the stretch turn, where he came through next to the inner rail and linished with a great burst of speed. The ring received a jolt over the victory of Omah J. in the tirst race. The right money went in on Omah J. and his odds were forced down from 10 to 4 to 1. Shilling rode a well judged race and his mount won going away by a half length. The defeat of live favorites evened up in a measure some of the losses sustained over the Omah J. race. Some of the winners sprung from most unexpected quarters. In the lifth George C. Bennett, showed up a shifty two-year-old in Terah, which won by a length from Marion Moore. In the early running Terah appeared hopelessly beaten. lie is a slow beginner, but when once fully settled in his stride lie came like a cyclone. Miss Lida got cast in her stall last night and wrenched one of her hocks. The leg is badly swollen and it will be some time before the lilly is sent to the post again. Jockey Prior will leave for Saratoga Saturday to ride for W. J. Young. The stables owned hy S. Lazarus, W. J. Young and C. David left Kenllwortli this morning for Saratoga. J. U. Strode announced today that lie will ship his stalde to Yonkers itf:xt week and that- Gaugel will do his riding. Jockey Pohnnka was suspended for one week by the starter for disobedience at the post in the sixtli race. Jockey Lloyd, who has been out of the hospital for a few days only, rode the winners in the last two races. The stable owned by It. L. Thomas, in charge of. John T. Ireland, will be shipped to Saratoga next week. Jockey C. II. Shilling will go with the horses.
