The rough riding of jockey Notter in the closing race, which almost caused a serious accident, his suspension for two weeks and a line of 0 by the judges, in addition to having his mount, Lancastrian, disqualified, were the chief incidents attending the sport this afternoon. Notter, breaking from an outer position, took his mount close to the others, thereby causing a mix-up when rounding the first turn in which Cashin, on El Capitan, was unseated. Luckily, the rider escaped injury. A fairly well-balanced card attracted a good-sized Monday attendance lo the course. The sport, however, was mediocre. Only two favorites were successful. The feature, a handicap at seven furlongs, went to Hyperion II. in Impressive style and fast time. Juggler, the well supported favorite, ran a good race from a slow beginning, but was unequal to the task of boating the winner today. Pedro, which finished third, was accorded confident support and for the first time In his numerous starts, he showed something of his true form. With a better send-off he would have been a sharp factor. Sam nufihelmer and Peter liecker were thought able to hold the others safe in the jumping race, but they were beaten out by Aules at a long price. Sam IIolThoimer, showing sudden improvement and superior speed, lasted long enough to take second place from Peter Keeker. Kilidoe furnished some excitement for the onlookers by falling after going over the last fence and laid apparently lifeless for a long time. After resting sufficiently he got up and was led off the track. His rider, Wellon, was shaken up slightly by the tumble. The Burlew and ONeill stable furnished the opening winner and favorite in Estella C, but she had to stand a hard drive through the stretch to outstay ISanrida. Robin Hood, the second favorite to win in the course of the, afternoon, had to run a sparkling race to win the purse. He was in close quarters for Hie first furlong of the stretch run. but when clear, came with a tremendous rush to take first place by a neck from the long shot,. Alencon. Dew of Dawn, showing superior speed and aided by good racing luck, made a show of her opponents in the fifth race at a mile and won all the-way. In the closing race, Cartilage showed a return to good form and never left the result of the race in doubt, Lancastrian getting second place from Zip-ango. There was much crowding and jamming in this race, from which Zipango suffered, but not snlliciently to warrant the rear position be occupied during the first three-quarters. Mountains effort in the final drive was a weak one and the judges i gave him to understand that he will have to do his best at all times if he wants to continue riding here. It. A. Smith has concluded negotiations with .lames McLaughlin for the transfer of the contract on jockey Calvin Henry, the promising apprentice rider. Starter Cassidy suspended jockeys C. ICoerner and J.
