The incidents in the race tarnished the after-noons chief excitement and those who had backed Dark Flower were naturally a disgruntled lot.

The lirst named succumbed to fli.iriueu.se. a former winner here. Brick lev wax given a rather listless ride, which contributed I ward liis failure. Klngling had no mishaps and was beaten hy a superior horse in Transportation, while Dark Flower was unlucky to have lost. The MacManus establishment, in addition to taking Hie stake rate, made it a double by winning With oSullivan. Like . enlo Iark. OSuilivau was extermeiy lucky to win and his victory was in the main due to Jockey Carrolls action in permitting No Ill to slip through next to the inner rail. Martin made amends lor his lasro on Dark Flower by winning with Huntress in the Ifth race, and followed it up With a victory on Guide Post in the closing dash. H was fortunate that the latter was much tin- best, for she was forced hack sharply al the start and had to close a tremendous gap. Another win ie winning chances were destroyed was Martinos in the sec aid race. The stewards, a tier the race, had Byrne on the carpet for his ride and he wis given a curiam lecture after the succeeding race, in which he rode Briekley. The officials were ilecidedly dissatisfied with his work and be was given to understand that he would have t i take a brace if be desires to continue the plying of his vocation here.
