favorite and he was well supported at 8 to 5 Tou reime was favorably In under 101 pound which included one pound overweight and while lack Atkin had a lead of a couple of lengths at one time it seemed that Tonrcnne might have been keeping pace with him had his rider so willed Lawrence P Daley which was well supported also was a distant third thirdOn On paper the lieId seemed to bo the best seen hen this season but none of those behind the first three showed anything like the form expected of them Montgomery racing for the first time since he won the California Handicap nt Santa Anita in March

and backed from 2 to 1 to S to n while lliere was a smart following for Koyal Tourist The latter was in front all the way and won like a useful threeyearold Kosebon had the outside posi ¬ tion at the barrier and broke through the webbing when the start came but was not impeded in the least because of this as ln got to the front in the llrst few strides but was soon passed by the winner winnerII II I Whitney siowed a good twoyearold In Bobbin winner of the maiden race and one that is sure to prove useful Bolihin is i full brother to Tanya winner of many twoyearold races in 1901 Suffragette from the Keene barn was favorite on the strength of good trials but she spoiled her chances by swerving at the post after cutting up a lot of didos before the start canje Mr Keene had better luck in the Laureate Stakes when Mclisande beat the favorite High Private in a drive For sythe substituted High Private for lion llomine the overnight entry from the stable but the scheme did not work so well as it did earlier in the meeting when Ion Ilomme was added to take the place of High Private and won Melisande was in front throughout though put to a sharp drive to win by less than a length High Private swerved badly in the run down the chute Interfering with Koss fenton and in the opinion of many should have been disqualified disqualifiedThe The tabled history of the Laureate Stakes since
