: , J 1 1 1 1 1 : 1 1 HAS A LIKING FOR LAUREL LAHORE WINS AN IMPORTANT STAKE THERE, JUST AS HE DID LAST SEASON. Talbott Racer Is Returned Winner of Washington Handicap, with Net Value of ,860 Consistent Donald Macdonaid Is Second. Baltimore, Md., October 18. John O. Talbotts Lahore was returned winner of the Washington Handicap at Laurel this afternoon. The race was worth ,S0O to the winner. Lahore was entirely overlooked by the betting public. It was this horses first start during the meeting and apparently everybody forgot that last year Lahore showed a distinct liking for this track. He won the American Grand National Handicap on the last day of the October meeting, defeating The Manager, Worth and others. It was a heartbreaking finish and as the race was run Donald Macdonaid should have been returned the winner. Ten Poiut, with the big burden of 12S pounds, was taken to the front and in turning for home he carried Donald Macdonaid wide, which permitted Lahore to get through on the Inside. These three hooked up in a desperate drive and Lahore got home by a narrow margin. The stewards promptly disqualified Ten Point for carrying Donald Macdonaid out at the head of the stretch. Incidentally. Donald Macdonaid was running today where he belongs. Last week this horse was entered for 1913.sh00 in a selling race and was bid up to ,900. Just a few days ago he was in for ,900 and was carried up to ,500; By the disqualification G. M. Miller, which ran an atrociously bad race the previous time out, was moved into third place. The performance of All Gold, II. P. Whitneys English-bred horse, was no better than it had been in any of his previous races here. Dombra, the two-year-old filly that Schuyler L. Parsons purchased at the dispersal sale of the horses of the late Charles Kohler. was sold In the paddock before the races. She went to J. P. McGovern for 15. This filly is a daughter of Hermis and Fred-erica and accordingly a half sister to Adams Express and Frederick L. The horses of L. Most have been turned over to T. J. Shannon, who will train them in future. In the lot is Colonel Ashmeade, which Is just now on the sick list. It . was reported by the railroad officials that more people were transported to the track both from Baltimore and Washington today than at any previous time since the opening of the meeting.
