GOOD RACING AT AQUEDUCT LAST WEEK. New York, July 10. Racing at the Aqueduct track last week furnished some of the best sport of the season. Large and select fields went to the post in all the stake races and the overnight races brought together big fields of evenly-matched horses. One title was won and another was put on the shelf during the week. Harry Payne Whitneys Jtosie OGrady proved she was the best two-year-old lilly of the year in the Clover Stakes on July 4, and on Friday, Wilfred Viaus Omar Khayyam, the "Kentucky Derby winner, toppled the crown off the head of Richard T. Wilsons three-year-old Camp-fire. But before Mr. Viaus crack colt can claim the crown, he will have to meet and defeat August Belmonts great French colt Hourless. II. C. Applegates Old Rosebud made gigantic strides toward the championship of the handicap division by his victories in the Queens County and the Carter Handicap. He defeated big bands of high-class horses in each of these events, but Harry Payne Whitneys trio of contenders, Regret, Borrow and Pennant, were not among those he vanquished, and no championship can rightfully be decided in their absence.
