January 8. — Trappoid. the now four-year-old daughter of Trap Rock — Outcome, has proven the sensation of the Juarez race meeting. This filly has started in five races and has won each start. She has won so easily against all-aged banes that those who have seen her performances believe she will be one of the most consistent thoroughbreds of her kind in the east next spring and summer. Trappoid was purchased in the east last fall by Joe Cniensetter. who shipped her to Juarez, together with tie- two-year-old Deckhand, now three. The filly was started the first day of the meeting bE a 00 top and bottom selling race. Getting away well, she was pulled up by T. Henry to win by six lengths from the good platers Husky Lad, Type and others. Mr. Imensetter then sent his filly in a 00 top and bottom selling race at one mile with such good high-class platers as Commauretta. Alda and Tom Caro. The filly won her second race just as easily as her first. She won. pulled up. to Commauretta by three lengths, running the mile in 1:38--. The filly was then started in a seven -eighths sprint with Commauretta. Casey Jones and Little String, winning by three lengths, eased up, in 1:26ft. The daughter of Trap Rock won her fourth victory, when she accounted for the Christmas Day Handicap at three-quarters. Trappoid only won by a half length from Sir Richard, but suffered from some interference on the turn and. despite this, proved the gamest at the end in a long stretch duel. Little String was third and Commauretta fourth. The fifth straight victory of the filly occurred when she won a five and a half furlongs handicap, beating Commauretta. Hocnir and Sir Richard. She has demonstrated that she can win at almost any distance from sprint races to a mile. Oldsmobile No Stayer. Oldsmobile. William Cains good selling plater, has proven one of the most consistent runners at the course. The son of Bowling Green — Lady Dotte has accounted for four victories, was second once and out of the money but once in his first si starts. Oldsmobile proved a whirlwind in the sprints, but when his owner sent him over a longer distance of ground the plater could not keep the long lead he raced into and. tiring badly at seven-eighths, was beaten off by C. M. Johnson, Art Kick and others. Mr. Cain has another crack sprinter in his barn in Tze-Lsi. a daughter of Voter — Fair Fmpress. The fillys name is a Japanese word meaning "in front" and, from her many victories, she has been will named. The filly has won four races and has only been unplaced once. She has been several times second and third. The attendance at the Juarez race course has shown a marked increase during the past week. There were more than 2.500 people passed through the turnstiles of the track the past week than any previous week since the inauguration of the one hundred or mon; lays of racing since Thanksgiving day. The pari-mutuel machines Have proven much more satisfactory thi;n was even anticipated by tin management, when this system of betting was started. The betting has shown an increase daily and the take has doubled since thr opening day. The mu-tuels have come to stay and M. J. Winn, manager t the track, states that lie expects the sporr across the river to develop next year into one of the best winter race meetings ever held on the North American continent. Business Picking Up. Now that the holidays are over, there is a marked increas • in the attendance of the El Paso business men. The business men of the city were so busy during the holidays that neither they nor their clerks had time to go to the rac s. But now that the rush has somewhat abated, the members of the chamber of commerce are giving the races their patronage. There are a large number of bankers, merchants and other business men at the course each ■■: . Pelle Koberts appears to be the most promising two y-ar-old at the -ourse. In her inaugural start she rai. green and was beaten a length and a half by her stable companion. Put Belle Koberts ran all over the course and showed she had the most speed. The filly tore over to the outside fence and Wclntyrc h id a hard time keening her from taking the jump. Shi then tore over to the rail. Bias Addie is another good-looking two-year-old. He is by Pines — Addie Hawkins, and in his first race shewed a highly sensational turn of speed Itolle Roberts, in running all over the course, hit Rlue Addie and nearly knocked him down. He will bear watching in his next out.
