CHANGE PERPLEXES PUBLIC SOFT TRACK AT JUAREZ MAKES PICKING OF WINNERS A PROBLEM. Orb Is Only Favorite to Score During Day Betting- Coui on Lady Panchita Is Successful Win- i ners Have Abundant Margin. j l hi Paso, Tex., February US. Climatic conditions were once more ideal at Juarez this afternoon and a big crowd of racing enthusiasts journeyed to the -course just across Hie Rio Grande. Tlie track bad j dried oul considerably under tbe inlluenee of tin Aaiiu sunsbine with which it was Hooded and was : in good condition, but still soft and a trille slow. ; Tin change from the customary lightning fast condition of the track proved perplexing lo the tnn: of the sport when it came to picking the winners. They were successful in only one instance during t In- day. The lions share of tbe purses went 1 horses thai had not been figuring prominently in : the fast track racing that has prevailed almost un- .in rrnptedly for several months. 1 Dr. I. E. Clarks Orb started tbe public off ails- pitiouslv when, as an odds-on favorite, he won the ; opening raee, a live and a half furlongs dash for ! i ree vear-olds, with allowance conditions. lie led 1 hi a considerable margin from start to finish and scored with marked ease. Sosius. from the Jefferson Livingston stable, found il easy to beat the others engaged in the race. lien 1neas, neglected in the betting, finished first i and by himself in the second race. Jockey Stevens kept "him elos, to the pacemakers from tbe start and once be permitted bis mount lo assume the lead be fairly ran away from the others. Itako was a well backed favorite in this raee and 1mishcil unplaced, while contenders whose chances bad been lightly considered, monopolized the places behind the winner. Dutch Ruck, admirably served by the soft going, won the third raee in commanding fashion. lie villi l one of the betting choices and his winning margin over Dave .Montgomery, the second horse, was six lengths. Tbe Monk was lirst choice for this raee anil ran in the rear from .start to linish. A betting coup of moderate proportions was successfully carried through when Lady Pauchitu won tbe fourth raee, a handicap at tbree-iiuarters of a w mile that served as tbe most attractive of the days features. Lady Pauchitu bad started only once before during this meeting and on that occasion had made a poor showing. She was never beaded today and finished with a two-lengths margin over Milton ltoblee. tbe runner-up all the way. Dob ll-iisley. the favorite, was never a dangerous factor in the contest and was unplaced at the finish for which a stumble at the start was responsible. Annual Interest was the favorite thai failed in the tifth. lie was never prominent and tbe race resolved itself into a contest at the- end between lluss, Tildy Wolffarth and .Salesia. This trio finished closely bunched in the order named. Bus and Tildy Wolffarth had raced head and head all the way and the superiority of jockey Kederis as a finisher in comparison with the lightweight apprentice. Molt, enabled Buss to win by tbe scant margin of a head. The closing race was marked by a spirited struggle ui tween 1 ncle Den, from the Newman stable, and Key. the odds-on favorite. Jlie former made all the pace and lasted to win by less than a length. .rier a stay of a week following his return from California, Jefferson Livingston has departed for New York. Dcfore leaving lie outlined his racing plans for the coming season. Tbe entire stable of twenty live horses will be shipped to Churchill Downs at the close of the Juarez meeting. There be major portion of the string will be rested until time for the opening of the New York season on May 20. when the lot will be shipped to Delmout Dark.
