EXCELLENT RACING AT TORONTO. Ypsilanti Appears in the Sandringham Plate and Is Beaten. Toronto. Ont., September 17. Stirring contests were in order at Woodbine this afternoon. An excellent program was provided, the features of which were the Sandringham Plate, the Epsom Handicap and the Kingwood Handicap, the latter a mile and a half race for hunters. Five of the seven events resulted in driving finishes, with the winners lirst home by small margins. Considerable interest was attached to the running of the Sandringham Plate, from the fact that Ypsilanti was a starter. Ypsilanti is the American-bred horse that showed such high-class form in England, where lie was rated as the best handicap horse in training. He has to his credit the winning of the Great Diamond Jubilee Stakes two years in succession, and in all the big handicaps this" year lie was assigned top weight. Ypsilanti was bred at the Wnlden farm at Mid-diebiifg. Maryland, and arrived in this country only three weeks ago. It was generally known that he was not up to a bruising contest and for this reason received but little consideration in the speculation. It was the horse himself that the people wanted to set; and, although he failed to show any sensational speed in his race, still lie impressed horsemen hero. His owner intends to retire him to the stud. The Epsom Handicap, the richest event on the program, was won by the American-owned horse Charlie Eastman, which carried top weight. lie was ridden by V. Powers. He came from behind and after a great stretch drive, got up in the last sixteenth and won going away. There were three added starters in this race. Rollicking Girl, Mini-ta and George S. Davis. The closing event went to the long shot. Black Hawk, which won after a hard drive. Murphy, who had the mount on Sudermau. which finished second, claimed foul against the winner, but it was not allowed. Among todays arrivals at the track were Henry Mason. J. L. Dayman and .1. Cooper, the latter with the division of the stable which Barney Schreiber is racing on the Canadian circuit.
