Bradley has not been especially favored by Dame Fortune in his racing operations this year, but he had some recompense this afternoon when his Cunard filly. Busy Signal, simply ran away from her fifteen opponents in the valuable Golden Rod Handicap. There was no compromise in the way she won. Taking the lead directly after the start, she ran the mile in 1:40 and at the finish was away off by herself, twelve lengths in front of Prince Pal. which finished a length before Orlovu. Prince Pal and Lorraine, coupled, were given the honor of favoritism. Lorraine practically had no chance from the start. Considering the dead and inelastic track. Busy Signals performance bordered on the remarkable and it is not to be overlooked that she vanquished the best form in the western two-year-old division. The Bradley colors enjoyed a field day, for, in addition to Busy Signals success, Iwin scored a sensational victory in the sprint handicap, in which she got up in the last stride to beat out High Cost after a seemingly forlorn quest, haying been a distant follower in the early racing. She came with a sensational flight of speed in the stretch and got the verdict in the final stride. Some of the best sprinters here started in the race and Colonel Taylor and American Ace were the disappointments in it. In addition to furnishing two of tho. afternoons winners. Blue Paradise and Dahabiali II.. both bred at Bradleys Idle Hour Farm and sired by Helmet, were victors in their respective races.

The mile and an eighth handicap, which also produced a heartbreaking struggle Iwtween Raider and Minto II., was covered in 1:52. . . Favorites were again victorious in many of the races and the public on the whole fared sumptuously, for they managed to land .on most of the winners. The wagering was heavy and the betting spread about on all the starters. . II. D. Brown is expected here next week to assist in the shipment of horses to Havana to engage in the Oriental Park racing.
