AMBROSE IN GOOD FORM CAPT. P. M. WALKERS HORSE WINS VALU-ABLE RACE AT PIMLICO. The Welkin Continues to Show Winning Form Through tho Steeplechase Field Good Crowd Out in Spite of Foggy Weather. Baltimore, Md.. November S. Two stake vinos were offered as the star attractions for the Saturday ntternoou program at Pnnlico. Tliey were the Green Spring Valley Steeplechase Uamtieap, two mills and a halt", and the Gleninoro Handicap, one mile and a quarter on the Hat, caeli with ,000 tidded. That grand mi mare of the steeplechase field. The WelKin, with 103 pounds to earry. won the jumping feature so easily that it was really, no contest. The Welkin made the pace from the drop of the Wag and was never threatened. George Kno, v.hich was looked upon as the one mojt likely to give contention, fell on the luck field just when it appeared that he might have a chance. The Welkins victory was the more impressive because after the finish she pulled up lame and it is likely she will not be seen under colors again this year. Cactus Bud, the second horse, shewed a much improved performance and may be much better than rated. The Glenniore Handicap resulted in a surprising victory for Cupt. I. M. Walkers Ambrose. This horse came east from Kentucky with considerable of a reputation, but his performances have not been impressive, though he has been running in first-class company. He lias been to the races several times this week and yesterday ran a good race behind FHttergold. In todays race, Ambrose had the speed of his Held from the start and was in front all the way. At the end he had a comfortable markiu. Buskin, which was erliaps the best fancied horse in the race, ran a good second and Barncgat, after being unfortunate in the early part, closed much ground and took third money. Ambroses apparent improvement came in for slderable criticism, but the horse had much weight ! oir. . - One of the largest crowds of the meeting was in attendance and the syort provided was highly interesting. It was not a good day for racing, as a heavy fog hung over the track during most of the sifternoon. The fog was so thick when the opening race was run that it was an impossibility to distinguish the colors, ami again during the sixth and last races the fog hung heavily. The stewards tlid not like the riding of jockey Derondo on ltlghteasy in the fifth race of yesterday and susended that rider indefinitely. W. I. Burch, who has been conhned to his room at n local hotel, is rapidly recovering and should be out before the end of the present meeting.
