CLOSE FINISH IN HANDICAP LITTLE STRING WINS FEATURE AT JUAREZ FROM FASCINATING AND ADALID. Good Crowd Sees Saturday Sport and Is Rewarded with Spirited Racing Old-Time Jockey Winner in One Contest. El Taso, Texas, December 2. A fairly large Saturday racing crowd went over the river to Juarez today to witness a good program of races that was arranged by secretary Shelley. The handicap at three-quarters was the feature race and it developed into a splendid contest, the first three coming to the wire all close together. Little String won, with Fascinating second, and Adalid, third. The other races furnished spirited contests. Edna P., which was bred by George Wingfield, the Nevada turfman, and sold to Mr. Gregg at Reno, won the second race easily, witli Louis Bailey, an oltl time pilot in the saddle. Horsemen and their strings continue to arrive. Several stables came in this morning from Phoenix, Ariz., Waco and Beaumont, Texas. This racing public has missed Hal Stevens, the caterer, who has been ill with stomach trouble at Baltimore, but he will be here by holiday time. His place is being filled by his brother, Joe Stevens. 1. A. Dwyer arrived from San Antonio, Texas, today and is looking for some good racing material. Jockey T. Henry was suspended for five days for rough riding in the last race yesterday.
