HEADS APABT IN HANDICAP CLOSE FINISH IN FEATURE RACE OF THE DAY AT TIJUANA TRACK. Scarlet Oaks Gets tho Verdict After Stretch Duel with Ed Cudihco Toastmaster Beats Patsy Mack and Others. Tijuana, Mex., December 7. Scarlet Oaks defeated Ed Cndihee by a head in the Beverly Handicap today after one of the greatest duels ever seen on tho Tijuana course. The mare was away flying, but Ed Cndihee caught her at the three-eighths post. They turned into the stretch on practically even terms and then the boys set down to the hardest kind of a drive, with the result that Scarlet Oaks shoved her head in front at the finish. Toastmaster won the third race from a fair band in which Patsy Mack should have been victor with stronger riding. Tobe Ramsey, the owner of the winner, claimed Patsy Mack out of the race. Eddie Martin made his reappearance in tho saddle with Ethel Welles in the second race, but was not fortunate in getting the mare away. Van Horn repeated his last race to win easily in this contest. There was an unusually strong wind up the back stretch, which impeded the runners to a certain extent.
