May 25. — James R. Keenes Ballot made his first appearance since his return from BfcM land in the mile and a sixteenth handicap at Belmont Park today, and the manner in which h - performed makes it a pity that he was early declared from the Brooklyn. Tlie handsome big chestnut was never let down at any time to win with ridiculous ease under 127 pounds. The opposition was not formidable, but Ballofs iM-rformance was truly im pressive on account of the manner in which he romped along with amaMUtr to go to the front at any slaue of the running. Not let rode him and it is probable that Butwell. who is under contract to the Keene stable, will not be seen in the saddle 011 the Keene horses for some time at least. Trainer Rowe was incensed over the ride Butwell gave Gra -mere in the Withers, and at that time said he would never ride another horse for Mr. Keene. Todays substitution of Notter indicates that at present But-well is on the ground so far as the Keene stable is concerned. The Pocantico was the stake of the diiv. but was overshadowed by the re appearance of Ballot. In this stake the only starters were lanilleberry and King Olympian. The frilaaa three year old "was al-I ways the favorite, and his defeat makes it eertaia that he will not do among the top notchers of his. age. Mr. Wilson had some consolation in the vie tory of Naushoii. iiis two-year -old half brother to the good mare. Gunfire. He made a show of Plu-. viotis and August Belmonts Minta in the foiir-s and a half-furlongs dash. The condensed history of the Pocantico Stakes since VMnt follows: Year. Winner. Wt. Jockev. Val.
