KEATOR IN" AVIMING MOOD p C RUNS AWAY FROM HIS OPPONENTS IN THE BAYVIEW HANDICAP. f P Don Enrique Makes a Poor Showing Explo- sions Good Race Kara in First v :i Horses for Benning. $ n t to Now York. November 7. There was a taste of s winter in the weather at Aqueduct this afternoon s and Hie track was heavy from the recent rains. This condition of affairs resulted in many scratches and the Ray view Handicap, which was so promising :1 overnight, brought only four horses to the post. :, Those thai remained in were Ken I or. Don Enrique. - Kentucky I.eau and lien l.an. The winner turned a up in Keator. which ran one of his best races. On i the way to the post, he all but broke away from Musgrave. wlu had the mount, "and as a matter of laet. In ran a furlong lie fore he could be pulled :i up. He was the long shot of the race, but was , we! thought of by his stable connections and the j Frank Parrel I contingent won handsomely by bis -v victory. Him Enrique seemingly was the best 1 .irsC in the race and II was natural that he should be the choice. He went to the iKist at 0 to 5. Kentucky Beau and r.en Ban each attracted some support and. in fact, there was not one of the l four starters that was not backed. The poor show- ; his; of Don Kitrique, lie being always outrun, was in l some measure was accounted for by the announcement that he raced in liar plates. The plates may i have been a handicap, but. Knapp rode an inade- quale race and there was little of the energy that lias marked some of his best efforts in the saddle, j The tabulated history of the flay view Handicap , is as follows: i Yar..

In the handicap for two-year-olds Explosion so far outclassed her opponents that she was always held at a prohibitive price. She won. and her victory was impressive, when it was considered that she was taking up 120 pounds, but at the finish . Miller had to use all his skill to make her last long enough to score over King Sol. Ardrl was one that attracted some following, but he quit badly in the stretch, and King Sol was The only one to give Explosion an argument. Don OUario, the 110 to 1. shot, in the Jield of live that started, iinished a good third. Kara was easily best in lie steeplechase, and was another of the winning favorites of the afternoon. Knight of Elway was the distinct disappointment of the race. On form he seemed to have a good chance, and lie was always the second choice. He cantered along lengths behind hi opponents all the way, and was closing the gap at the end after the race was over. Druid just managed to beat Sister Frances in the seven furlongs for fillies and mares, and the linish was so close that it was almost impossible lo split them apart. Rlacksheep, one that has been steadily improving, was much the best in the sis furlongs for two-year-olds that was the fifth race, and he led from end to end. In this race Obert was well backed, but lie could never reach a contending position. In the last race Summer Cloud was best, but when the final drive came Musgrave on Hooray outrode A. Marl in and brought the Aste gelding home winner by a short head. The. first shipment for Benning will leave Saturday, when .Toll n E. Madden will send six head from 1 heopshead Hay. The remainder of the Madden 1 string lias already been shipped to Hamburg Place. Air. Madden has a number of entries for stakes there, lmth ids own horses and those he trains for the Messrs. Hitchcock. Salvidere is eligible for the Dixie Stakes at one mile ami three-quarters, but not likely to start. The colors of Harry layne "Whitney will lie seen at Helming Ibis fall for the lirst time. Mr. Whitney will send three horses to Washington, having already made arrangements to ship with the It. T. Wilson, .lr., lot. He has entered Killaloe for the Vestal Stakes, Royal Tourist and Adriana for the Orand Consolation and Sea Wolf for the Dixie. Mr. Keene lias also made entries and the Benning meeting this fall will take on the air of metropolitan racing to a greater extent than ever before. After Rlacksheep had won the fifth race, Joe Manoue was oil hand to give the colt a boost. He only bid -"MOO above the entered selling price, 1907.sh0, nnd Mr. Bradley kept the horse. The Boles case still hangs fire and one who should know something about the Inner workings of the case, said today he did not believe that the investigation would reveal anything of a startling nature. Musgrave, who Is attracting attenlion just now, divided the riding honors with Miller, each winning two races.
