FAYOBITE STAYS AT POST, DON ENRIQUE SULKS AND REFUSES TO START IN OAKLAND FEATURE. Deutschland Defeated by Billy Pullman Anna L. Daley Scores at Kcr First Attempt Adverse Legislation Not Feared. San Francisco. Cal.. November 28. Hon Enrique, recent coiKiucror of tin chief Inrf celebrities in training lien-, including Dorantc. created a sensation today liy refusinjr to start in the feature race being left standing at tlie, post. Butler rode Klii-sons heavily backed gelding and both liorse anil rider were unready at the barrier. It was a clear case, however, or a sulky horse and this trait, common to his sires progeny, was betrayed in the favorites preliminary gallop, ieneral Thomas McGregor, r. S. A., an honored guest in the press-stand, remarked on Don Enriques mean looiis when going to the Kst. Despite free use of his whip and spurs. Butler was unable to make him budge for a seemingly interminable time. When he finally got to going, the others were nearly a half mile in the lead. Pursuit therefore was unavailing and he only cantered the journey. Cressina outbroke and outpaced ber four remaining contestants decisively. W. T. Overton. Tony Faust. Frank Flittiior and Miiford ran throughout in Indian lile and finished as named. Another incident of the running of a line card "was Strike Outs runaway or a mile before the start. His regular rider. Holmes, had been discarded, but lie was too big a handful for the diininu live Upton and went around the track at top speed. A coup would probably have materialized but for this. The victorious debut of Anna L. Daley marked the first appearance of Fred Cooks colors- on the coast in six years. The -winner was a well-hacked public choice and her success very popular in consequence. Schreibers Sainvoko was nearly left and failed to get up in :i phenomenal effort. A pair of grand lookers in llaunab Louise and Hosevala participated ami displayed brilliant speed, but were palpably short and will surely reverse this running later on. Deutschland, backed into hot favoritism, succumbed under his his woblit to his younger, lightly -weighted opponent, I.illy Pullman, in the third race. This stallion will soon be racing against a dozen or more of ids progeny. Mr. Schreibers coining two-year-olds by Deutschland are said to bo wonders. Boas s-prcadeagled bis opposition in the opener, ridden by jockey Alliert Walsh. This lad again distinguished himself in the last race. K. Sullivan also rode two winners. Cressina and Mabel Hollan ier both froln K. J. Ramseys stable. Kcogh scored on the resurrected El lord, while I. McCarthy took the remaining Winning mount on Hilly Pullman. Glorious weather prevailed. The track was still cuppy and comparatively slow and dillicult. still favorites maintained their ascendancy, accounting for half of the card. Senator Gus Ilartnian, one of the biggest men politically in the state of California, and an out spoken champion of thoroughbred racing and clean sport of all kinds, was a visitor at Oakland this afternoon. The senator said that the coming iegis lature anight possibly, though very improbably, enact a few mild and reasonable restrictive laws governing racing. It is a very line lot of liberal-minded men composing the present senate and assembly, and people in favor of the sport liave positively no fear of adverse legislation. Winter racing in California means millions of dollars to business interests throughout the state every six mouths, besides1 incalculable tienefits derived from the enormous advertising the state derives through its race meetings. Twenty-nine Iooks reported at the new cut-in. Ambrose Dunn and the St. Lonls Club being absentees. All of P. T. .Cliinns raters have been shipped south, which leaves W. II. Spence without a stable to train.
