which had not raced since lie won the MetroiKilitau Handi ¬ cap after being practically left at the post never left the result in doubt today Joe Nottcr again had the mount oa him and when the signal was given he at once sent liini in the lead and re ¬ mained there throughout to win handily Just after making the turn into the stretch Wliisk Broom II began to loaf but as soon as Notter shook him up he drew away again to win by a comfort ¬ able margin His race was a wonderfully K tod one for he carried 130 pounds anil mn the mile and a quarter in 203 over a track that hail been dulled by rain

to expectations it was in fairly good shape when the racing began being wet on top dryThe in spots while other parts were perftvlly dry The best thing of the meeting materialized in the fifth race when Early Kose led from start to finish and won easily Some few were able to secure 10 to 1 against her chances but the best general price was 5 to 1 and at post time she was a 7 to 5 favor ¬ ite Early Rose is owned by Alex Smith Cochran who was recently elected a mcml ei of tlie Jockey Club and she is the lirst racer to carry his colors Unfortunately Mr Cochnm was not at Hie track to see his
