POLLY PRIM DISQUALIFIED. INTERFERES WITH LIGHT WOOL IN THIRD RACE AT YONKERS. Colloquy Analn Whips Carthacie Jockey Ott Gives Oak Grove a Poor Ride Some Close Finishes. New York, August 19. The 12,000 persons gathered at the Empire City track this afternoon were treated to several surprises. The lirst came with the running, of the second race, won by Nellie Ka-eine, tlie exetreme outsider. Oak Grove and La Veita were the choices, but both were distant trail-rs. W. Ott rode a bad race on Oak Grove and the stewards had him up to explain. Owner Fcrrisa was also Intel-viewed. Tlie stewards attributed her poor showing to incompetent riding. In tlie third race came a disqualification. Polly Prim, after winning, was set back and lirst money given to Light Wool, Ostrich getting second money. Colloquy scored her thlid victory when she beat out a good band of sprinters, including Carthage and Gold proof. Colloquy was conceding much weight to all tlie other starters. v Jockey Shillings bad ride on C. W. Hurt enabled Stanley Fay to beat him to the finish by a neck in the fifth. Tlie closing race was noteworthy for the stiff support accorded King of the Valley, Iterate Cramer and Marvin Neal. The first named ran a creditable race and barely failed to land the purse Captain Williams withdrew Cartilage from the long race which appeared at his mercy, and bet on Polly Prim. He then attempted to even his losses on Carthage. "Frisco" Gardner disposed of Theodore H. to J. C. Fcrriss, Jr., this morning. This puts -Gardner uut of tlie owner ranks. There is a lot being said and printed here to the effect that Louis A. Celhi and John Condon will build a ,000 race track at Coney Island, but Uie truth of the tale has not been established. It is said that Dick Brown, who backed Usury and other horses heavily Saturday, won about 5,-000 on the day.
