SGOIiES OYER A POOR LOT JACK ATKINS BR0THJ2R GRADUATES FROM MAIDEN CLASS AT JUAREZ. Ladies Day Sees Big Crowd at Mexican Course Jockey Smalls OvcrconSdence Almost Costs W. G. Yanke a Purse. 121 Paso, Tex., December 1. This morning was cloudy, with a light sprinkling of rain, but before the horses went to the post the sun came out bright and clear, making it pleasant for the big ciowd that visited the Juarez track, it was the second occasion since the opening of tlks present meeting that the ladies were guests of the association and they were out in large numbers. Two favorites, three second choices and a long shot accounted for the card. Fred Drew, the winner of the opening dash at the long price of .! to 1. is a brother to Barney Schrci-ber s great horse, Jack Atkin. This horse raced around Kentucky, 1ut failed to show anything. Today he sprinted into the lead among a cheap lot and won handily. Kosiris and Aniohalko each won their second victory of the .meeting this afternoon. Jockey I. Stirling won with mohalko and Sir Dyke. The latter was hcavly backed by the Texas contingent. W. G. Yanke sent an odds-on winner to the post in Billy Joe. Jockey Small came mighty close to losing the race through overcontidence, when he began to take his mount up opposite the paddocic when he had Make Good beaten. Stolen Ante finished with a whirlwind rush and Small just managed to get his horse going again in time to save the purse. J. Fmonsetter arrived today from Louisville with sixteen in his car. being the property of other owners. He turned out Lady Ianehita and Justice Goe-bel at Louisville. The application of E. Denny for a jockeys license is being held up by the stewards, as the boy was involved in some trouble here in previous seasons.
