MISS SAIN PROVES FALSE. BEINGS WOE TO OVERCONFIDENT SUPPORTERS WHEN BEATEN BY IDA MAY. i Texans Jubilant When Sam Taylor Scores — Bluster a Good Steeplechaser — Cull Defeats St. Bellane — Mortality Among Horses. New Orleans. La.. February 28. — With the exception of the short course steeplechase and a purse race at three-quarters, the card was aliout the worst that New Orleans race-goers have witnessed. The Murdi Jras visitors were unmindful of the quality of the horses carded to furnish the sport and attended in great numbers. Only thirty-one layers quoted prices. The recent severe drubbing they have been subjected to was bound to cause a decrease in their numbers. Long shots again had their inniflg. four of them upsetting calculations by leading to the finish. Ida May. starting for the first time in a long while, gave the smart players a jolt when she beat Miss Sain. Ida May was neglected in the betting. her owner being of the opinion that she was a trifle short and would not last the race out. She was away fast, showed much speed, but attempted to run out on the stretch turn when her rider grew lax. but he recovered in time to straighten her and in a furious drive got her past the finish a nose in advance of Miss Sain. The later was the same distance in front of Bellwether, which would have won in a few more strides. The steeplechase went to Bluster, which, at the I weights, appeared to outclass t li - others and won from Profitable in a common canter. Buckiiian. after being a close contender for the first seven i jumps, tired, but was good enough to retain third I place. Qalt, the early leader, unseated his rider at the fifth jump and Ralph Reese ran around the . same obstacle. Dawson, which finished fifth, prac-llcally broke down. The attendant veterinarian i ordered his destruction and lie was accordingly shot. The youngster race was again noteworthy for the • plunge on Tyler, but he failed to get any part of the money, the purse going to The Slicker in a i hard drive over Keniii.ire Queen, Edwin L. taking third place. Fifteen maidens started in the third race and 1 Mondella proved much the best by winning in a t canter. Tamar. the favorite in the fifth race, had to l e hard ridden to wear Prowler down in the last sixteenth, but won going away. Sam Taylor, which was aecorded strong backing yesterday and practically left at the post, made , every post a winning one today in the sixth race and won easily from Hannibal Bey. The latter was away poorly and would have made it interesting for the winner was a better send-off. Cull had thiugs his own way in the closing race at a mile and a half -and won easily from St. Bellane and Bright Boy. the choices. At a meeting held by the executive committee of tlie Crescent City .lockey Club it was decided not to eliiiiige the betting system which has prevailed at that track since the lieginuiug of the season. A big crowd is confidently expected to couie out to tlie track tomorrow as it is the leading holiday of the Mardi Gras celebration.
