TEMACEOS EOM REVERSAL ELLISONS HORSE WINS THE FAIRVIEW STAKES AT BELMONT PARK. He and Acrobat Perform Most Inconsistently in the Mud Jimmie Lane Takes the Corinthian Open Steeplechase. New York, October S. New York pot a terrific windstorm willi a heavy downpour of rain last night ami this morning. The wind Mew up biting and cold, and tills seriously affected the attendance at Belmont Park today. It was the smallest of the season. The card was made up of four overnight events and two stakes of minor importance. The Temaeeo form reversal and the defeat of Good T.uck were the chief features of an uneventful and commonplace days racing. The stakes were the Corinthian Open Steeplechase Handicap for four-year-olds and upward, to lie ridden by gentlemen riders, at two miles and a half, and the Fairvlew Selling Stakes, at a mile and a sixteenth, exclusively for three-year-olds. The first named developed into an interesting, spectacular and well-contested race, and was won by the favorite, ."Ijmmy Lane, under the skillful and vigorous handling of-Mr. Lee Evans. Temaeeo won the flat fixture with ridiculous ease, decisively, reversing his previous running with Acrobat. Ellison and OLcary of Chicago backed 1 lie winner extensively at lucrative odds. This fact, combined with Tcmaeeos remarkable improvement, aroused general criticism. There was a rumor current after Temaceos victory that there would be an investigation of the recent running of Ellisons horses. Eighteen two-year-old maidens went to the post for the first race, a sprint of five and a lialf furlongs, and at the end Masquerade was in front by a comfortable margin, but hustling to keep away from Lotus Brandt. The GO to 1 shot, Ardri, was a good third. Durante ran well and should graduate before long. lint four started for the Corinthian Open Steeplechase that came second on thecard, and all finished. it was a well-contested affair throughout, but Jimmy Lane was the most skillfully ridden and decisively outstayed Garrett at the end. Follow On was a respectable third, but Dr. Keith would have occupied that place but for bolting. The tabled history of the Corinthian Open Steeplechase is as. follows: 11102 Tip Gallant.. .1!

Sanguine ran generously today and defeated, some moderate two-year-olds for the third race. P.ridge "Whist furnished the most opposition and was only beaten by a head. St. -llario quit when seeming to have the race won. The favorite, Wave Crest, was beaten off. In the Fairvlew Stakes at a mile and a sixteenth, Temaeeo ran to his best form, while the favorite, Acrobat, justified ills name and did not. Temaeeo drew out lu tlie stretch and won a fast run race by the trille of eight lengths, while Tony Bonero lauded in second place by a good margin in front of Acrobat. In his last previous race Acrobat defeated Temaeeo with ease, but the track was fast and it Is not easy to determine whether Acrobat or Temaeeo was the worst offender against public form today.

Ironsides, Ainpedo, liss Crawford and Sea Wolf had been scratched, leaving but three to go. Of these Good Luck was made a 2 to 5 favorite, overlooking the fact that Missouri Lad is of about the same class, and was in receipt of six pounds. The result was that Missouri Lad came at Good Luck in the stretch and defeated him by a head in a sharp drive, to the sorrow of some sure-thing backers. In his present good form Chief DTayes was deservedly favorite for the last race, and made good, but it was a close call. Golden Shore got out In front ami ran so fast; the race seemed settled until near the tinlsli, where Chief Hayes finally nailed him and won out by a head, the time, 1 :9, marking a good performance. Harry Page wore his famous monocle during the running of the Corinthian Steeplechase. Passing the grandstand tin second time, Garrett blundered seriously at the Liverpool, nearly unseating 1,1s rider, Mr. 1age, leisurely leaned down and replaced his feet In the strrups, exhibiting a clever bit of horsemanship. Apple Toddy collided with Wave Crest and nearly knocked him down at the start of the third race. It. T. Wilson, Jr., was not present to see his Sanguine win. The erratic Ornament two-year-old steadily receded in the betting. Luigi Masnada is the latest and most important acquisition to the local contingent of steeplechase jockeys. He is an Italian who has ridden witli considerable success in Canada, scoring live wins, one second and three thirds out or sixteen mounts in cross-country events at Hamilton and Toronto recently. The decision of the Court of Appeals in the case of the New York Stale Pacing Commission versus the Empire City track, which was argued at Albany today, will ,not lie rendered until next November. The steeplechase course at Belmont Park has been altered so as to cut out the far turn where Good and Plenty came to grief in a race last spring. The three furlong turn has been omitted and the horses came through on the inside, which lessened the distance. This was. however, offset by the very sharp turn they are compelled to negotiate at a slow pare just before being straightened out for home.
