OPHELIA SCORES ANOTHER TRIUMPH Wins Her Fourth Victory of Bowie Meeting from High-Class Opposition. DOWIE, Mil., November 25. Mrs. J. E. Davis good filly Ophelia scored her fourth victory of the present meeting when she showed the way throughout and won most decisively from Salvestra and Old Rosebud in the Meadow Drook Handicap, the programmed feature at Prince George Park this afternoon. Rice quickly rushed the daughter of Senseless into the lead and, although never threatened, he took no chances and rode her out at the finish to win by four lengths. Old Rosebud raced after the winner gallantly to the stretch, but in the last sixteenth was beaten for second place by the fast closing Salvestra. Leoehares gave it up at the far turn after racing up into a contending position. The weather was cloudy and threatening, but the track was fast and attendance good. Rain commenced falling as the horses were going to the post for the last race. Fort Dliss suddenly recovered his best form and accounted for the Camp Meade Claiming Handicap. He went around the leaders, Grimalkin and Uncles Lassie, while rounding the stretch turn and drew away from them in the final eighth. Grimalkin was tiring rapidly near the end and barely lasted to save second place from the fast closing Kashmir. The closest finish of the afternoon came in the sixth race, N. K. Deal, the extreme outsider in a speculative way, beating Mint. Cat by the smallest of margins. Mint Cat appeared an easy winner on the last turn, but suddenly tired and lost out in the last few strides. Detsinda, which scored at a long price last Friday, came right back and won again today, accounting for the opener. She ran a highly creditable nice to win and was a hot favorite. Le Dalafre was a huge disappointment in the following race, quitting near the end afterjflattering his" backers ih""tl:c eVrly stages. The winner was Susan M., at the lucrative odds of 09.J0 for . John Sanfords good English-bred filly Pontypridd outclassed her opponents in the third race and won all the way, but pulled up a trifle lame.
