Rowie, Md., November 27. Tim Rivermeade Purse, for three-year-olds and over, at a mile, and tli; Renniug Purse, for two-year-olds, at six and a lialf furlongs, were tin; main races decided at Bowie this afternoon, and in both eases the winner made all the running. Mnrse Henry was first liime in the Rivermeade Purse, which was the more important of the two, and lie appeared the host of the field after Christie and Water Lady were withdrawn. The strong backing Riven Indian Chant, however, caused him to he made the favorite. He ran well for about a half mile and then fell hack and, at the end, was next to last. On the other hand. Marse Henry dashed to the front right after the start and at once raced into a bljj lead and, while he seemed inclined to quit in the stretch, he had enough left to maintain Iiis advantage and win the purse by two lengths, with Brooks taking second-place money from Sandhill by a length. ntimatum, from the stable of Samuel Ross, which had not raced since the Laurel meeting, was returned the winner of the Itenning lurse, for which he was the favorite. He made all the running, but near the end tired badly, so that his margin was hut a length over the fast coming Waukeag. The latter might have been the winner with a more energetic ride on the part of Robinson. The jockey allowed the horse to drop back to last place, where he remained for the first half mile of the race, then sent him after the others, and Waukeag passed them all one by one with the exception of ntimatum, and in the closing strides he was going much faster than the winner. Waukeag secured second money from Manokin by a length. George Odom, acting for T. J. Smith, today disposed of the two-year-old Ed Garrison to Wm. Feuehter at private sale.
