Kiehard Crokers Orby, winner of the Epsom Derby and the Irish Derby, made ids fifth start ami met his lirst defeat as a three-year-old in the Atlantic Stakes of ,000 today. There were only four starters, all three-year-olds and the race was a thrilling one, the horses being heads apart at the finish of the mile and an eighth with Linacre lirst, Earlston second, Einstein third and Orby last. Orby was a hot favorite at odds-on. He came here last week from Mr. Crokers place in Ireland looking lit. It may have been that he was not quite on edge after his rest.
