Bradley furnished the winner of the Red, White ami Blue Handicap, todays feature race at Windsor, when his good sprinter, Blind Baggage, beat a band of fast horses, lie carried 128 pounds, made all the pace and beat Hodge by three lengths. Todays races wens run over a drying out track and the footing improved wonderfully as the afternoon progressed. The Hourless Purse, named for Mr. Belmonts good three-year-old, furnished a stirring contest, in which Berlin beat Waukeag out by a head. Both came from behind and easily passed Priscilla Mullens in the stretcli drive. The race was a dash of a mile, for three-year-olds. W. W. Darden claimed Droll out of the second race. F. Prior claimed 0. A. Comiskey out of the fifth raco and S. Louis claimed Irregular out of the sixth. Dolina was bid up 05 after she won yesterday and was bought in. Claims were deposited for Thanksgiving by W. Schmidt, G. Knebolknmp and F. Farrington. It was found that the latter did not have enough money in his envelope and his claim was thrown out. This morning G. Knebelkanip and W. Schmidt drew for the horse and it was then discovered Hint Knebelkanip had not deposited a sufficient amount and his claim was void, which meant that Schmidt got the horse. , E. R. Bradley and Frank Weir announced that thpy would ship their stables over to ICenilworth. Bradley looked the plant over and was so well pleased with it, that he immediately reserved a box for the meeting. Old Rosebud will probably start in a special race, which will be featured at the meeting. Entries for the handicap to be run on the opening day of the ICenilworth meeting, will close tomorrow and entries can be made with, Julius Reeder at the secretarys office .at the Windsor track. Reeder will be at Windsor every day to receive entries from horsemen who will be quartered at that course. John Powers left tonight" with the W-. P. Orr horses for the Empire City track. Jockey Earl Haynes goes .from hrc to Saratoga. .-rreposed-Ciixuit?6f The racing situation, which will arise with the close of the Canadian tracks on August 1, has been largely solved by the announcement made yesterday by William W. Finn, the well-known western promoter.- Mr. Finn in a telegram addressed to A. T. Dobson.says that a nineteen days meeting will be held at Cheyenne, Wyo., beginning Saturday, August 15, and ending Saturday, September 8. After an interval of one week, that is September 14, Reno, Nev., will take tip the running. The meeting there is scheduled to continue for twenty-five days, ending October 12. Mr. Dobson already has the assurances of many horsemen, who formerly raced in the west, that they will participate in both meetings, and many more owners who have heretofore confined their operations to the east, but who are intending to winter at Tijuana, are figuring on earning shipping expenses by stopping at the places mentioned. Full particulars concerning the new ventures will be available tomorrow. Howard Oots left with the main division of his stable for the Empire City track this morning. He left six horses with M. Lowonstein, who will campaign them at the ICenilworth track and then ship to Kentucky. Oots plans a campaign at Saratoga this summer and may raco at the Maryland meetings in the fall.
