Seneca Wins the Principal Contest of the Afternoon in a Canter — Sharper Right Defeats J. Nolan in a Close Finish. El Paso, Tex., November 28.— For the first of the Juarez meeting Secretary Ed Jasper offered, patrons of the sport a well-filled and evenly-balanced card, but one that was lacking in special feature.-.. Every race carried selling conditions. The patronage was of goodly proportions, as it always i ; on Sunday at this Mexican track. Dixie Mina. the lukewarm favorite, accounted for the opening dash in a hard drive with Palma and Moller, the two other choices. The three of then had dominated tbe running throughout. The second race provided .1 nose finish between Sharper Knight and J. Nolan, both quoted at liberal odds. Fancy was the favorite anil finished far back. Orimar Lad was held in highest esteem for the third, but Kenneth took his measure by half length after leading from the start. The five and a half furlongs sprint that was run as the fourth race was contested by the best field of the day and resulted in an easy victory for Seneca, tlie odils-on favorite. The son of Disguis« made a show of his opposition and won off by five lengths from Carrie Ornic, which had beaten the gate. Polk and Lamar, owners of Gilbert Rose, wero fined 5 by the stewards for being late with their horses in tlie paddock. R. Ripley bid Furlong up from his entered price of 00 to 1915.sh0© and W. J. Weber protected hia horse. ______________
