Cal., November 2S. A largo and enthusiastic Saturday crowd was present today and was? well repaid for its trip to the course at the foot of the mountains, for the racing was productive of three cracking, close finishes. Secretary Smith presented one of his best cards and, although the lields were comparatively small, they were so well balanced as to furnish exciting sport throughout the afternoon. The event of the day went to W. Walkers three-year-old. Stanley Fay. which was heavily sup ported by he public. Vox Po:uii set him a merry pace for the first seven furlongs, but here Stanley Fay overhauled him. the two lighting it out under keen urging to the line. Stanley Fays splemUd gameness stood him in good stead in the closing strides and he got bis head over the winning mark in front. All Alone disappointed a number of easterners in the days opener by failing to finish inside the money. La Gloria was at her best -today and. generously supported by public and sharpshooters alike, made the others in the last race look cbean. Tle time. 1:05 for five and one-half rurlnngs. clipped otT a fifth of a second from the track re.-ord. Old Dutiful, the gray that has inn some peculiar races here in the last Tew years, was not allowed to start today. He was not in any condition to race and Judge Hamilton put him on the retired list. Jockey J. Lee arrived this afternoon and will ride hero for F. A. ForsyUho. Today was the second draw-in. nineteen books answering the roll call. They drew in for three days.
