DENHAMS SPLENDID PERFORMANCE. Canadian Colt Runs Mile in 1:38 4-5 in Winning the Buffalo Selling Stakes. Buffalo, N. Y., July 27. In the Buffalo Stakes at Fort Erie today the Ilendrie colt, Denham, showed that he is one of the fastest horses ever bred in Canada. He won in a canter by eight lengths from .Taeonio, Nat B., Polly Prim and Halbard and ran the mile in 1:38 j, truly a remarkable performance for a three-year-old at this track. Denham showed great speed at all stages and opened a winning lead before they had gone a furlong. The first half mile was covered in 48 and the three-quarters in 1:12. The result was never in doubt. Polly Prim, the odds-on favorite, was outrun all the way. The race had a guaranteed value of ,500, the winners portion of which was ,150. The tabled history of the Buffalo Soiling Stakes is as follows: Year. Winner. A. Wt Jockey. Val. Time. 1003 Bank Street....". 00 Donovan .. .,150 1:4SJ 1001 Zarkee 3 07 I.

Lord Dixon, in defeating Woolstone after a furious drive in the seventh race, saved the poolrooms and handbooks throughout the country a drubbing. Supine, which finished fourth in, the.. sixth race, was another heavily backed horse that failed. A rough trip ruined Supines chances. Only three favorites won. The betting was heavy and the ring reaped ricli profits. Allie Gates, acting for D. Hutchinson, has purchased of H. T. Griflin the two-year-old Green Dale by Allan-a-Dale. Six of the horses which J. B. Respess shipped to Kenilworth from Latonia were transferred over to Fort Erie tills afternoon. F. Liliby arrived from Latonia today with six jumpers, including Peter Keeker, Orthodox and Dell Lentil. They will be raced at Fort Eric and then shipped on to Montreal to take part in the fall meeting at Blue Bonnets. Sal tram, the two-year-old lilly which Al. Weston purchased of K. T. Wilson, Jr., a few days ago, won at the lirst time of asking for her now owner when she beat Shirley K. out a head in the sixth race today. Koine Kespess reports .that his good eolt, Joe Moser, Is ou the mend. The sickness of . this youngster will probably force Kespess to change plans. It was his intention to send a half dozen horses to Saratoga, but he will probably stop hero until the opening of tiio Montreal meeting.
