MUD RACING AT AQUEDUCT. JAMES B. BRADY TAKES THE BELLE-ROSE STAKES IN A CANTER. Boiiiict Scores in a Close Finish Miss Sain Rims Poorly Okenite Wins at Last McDaniel Rides Two Winners. New York, November 5. A driving rainstorm that lifted all day lonr made racing at Aqueduct lliis afternoon particularly disagreeable. The card originally gave promise of high class sport, but Hie change in the track condition, it being deep mill slushy before the first race was called, resulted In numerous scratches. Only two of the favorites were lirst home, although each winner was well supported and there was no race that furnished a real surprise. King Cobalt was the shortest priced horse that went to the post during the afternoon and, after being backed with coiifi tlence at ! to 20. lit! was beaten out by Bouquet. After t lie scratching of The Squire, and Monopolist in the race. King Cobalt was looked upon as a particuhnly good tiling, although there was nothing in his past form that warranted the .short price that was offered. liouquet never gave her backers any uneasiness. .She was speedy enough to go to the front at the rise of the barrier and McDaniel hustled her along in that position all the way. Bight at the end Kins Cobalt, under a Ions drive, closed up slightly, but at the finish the lilly still had nearly three parts of a- length to spare. Miss Sain, only recently shipped from the west, was one that was fancied on account of her known ability to run well in mud. She was backed from fifteens down to ciglrrs, but a distant third was tin- best she could accomplish. The feature of the day was the P.cllerose Stakes, which was won easily by .lames H. I.rady. lie was always the choice, though 0 to 5, a very liberal price in view of what he had been showing, was offered. lie was never fully extended to win in a canter from Arasee, the second choice, while Woodbine just saved third place from Goldqucst. The tabled history of the 15elIero.se Stakes is as follows: Year. Winner. Wt. .Tockey. Val. Time. lilt; W. H.

Comedienne was t lie choice, but she was always outfootcil and finished last of the four that started. In this race the high-priced W. II. Daniel ran and. after racing head and head with Frank Lord all through the early stages, fadeil away and was easily beaten for second place by General Haley. On behalf of his showing there is the excuse that lie was led to tin! post long before the other horses arrived and was compelled to stand in the cold rain long enough to become thoroughly; chilled. It is doubtful if he could have beaten Frank Lord, but this handling surely hurt his chances not a little. Clonecho, after having been away from the races for a long time, has come back a very useful horse. Today he repeated his recent good race by beating a fairly good lot of selling platers over the mile and a sixteenth distance. Lord Stanhope, the favorite, was a close second. Okenite was the winner of lie day that ran the most remarkable race, lie was lengths behind his opponents at the start and apparently hopelessly beaten, but caiqe on to win easily from Tramp, the pacemaker. At the end of the program the frequently touted Al il. - Woods finally escaped from the maiden class, lie was the favorite.
