Stirring contests came with the running of a majority of the races at Oriental Park this afternoon. Some of the finishes were so close that the winners were in doubt until the official placing was displayed. Particularly was this so in the second and third races, in which Fascinating and Breeze were returned winners by the shortest of margins. The attendance was large and speculation heavy. The public reaped a harvest, as five of the six winners were well backed. Miss Ivan was the first to score, winning the opening dash in easy style. Fascinating, heavily backed, landed the second, but only after a strenuous stretch drive with Ambrose, in which the. old mare got up in the final strides. Revelry James was another choice to win, beating Closer in a hotly contested finish in the fourth race, while Walter Mack and Gordon Russell, both outstanding favorites, sent the spectators home in a happy frame of mind by accounting for the fifth and sixth races.
