FAVORITES FAIL AT JEFFERSON PARK Saturdays Racing Hard on the Talent Jockey Robinson Expected Monday. NEW ORLEANS, La., November 29 Delayed in transmission. A sudden drop in temperature and heavy showers tltis-morning was a reniinder of approaching winter and was responsible for a decrease in the expected large attendance for this afternoon. At that there were enough racing enthusiasts at the course to fill the spacious stand to the crowding point. Ring activity was up to standard and the talent suffered extensively by the failure of six of the choices. The exception in this respect was Luther, which won the sixth race in runaway fashion. Interesting racing marked the afternoon despite adverse conditions and lack of an outstanding feature. Some of the finishes left a doubt as to the winner until the official placing. This was particularly true of the opening dash when Peggy C and Watorsmeet were so closely together at the end that none outside of the judges on a direct Hue witli tiie finish could determine the victor. Peggy O. was given the award. The second race, iu which some ordinary ones started, at three-quarters of a mile, was a repetition of the oxning race. Tiajan getting up iu the last stride to beat Thursday Nighter, which in the earlier running threatened to win easily. Tuom-beola was the favorite in this, but after racing forwardly to the stretch turn, retired. Lonely was held to outclass the five others starting iu the third race and she raced into the lead at once and held sway to the lase eighth, where Diamond Girl caught her and won by a good margin. Lonely just managed to outstay Rapid Stride for second place. Miss Kruter was the next offending favorite. She was taken into camp in easy style by Thistles Beau anil Parrish, the winner leading from the start closely pursued by Parrish. Gallant Lad was backed with confidence in the fifth race, but in the running Mabel Trask took the lead at the outset and held it wthout trouble to the end. Pleasurcvllc. coming with a rush right at the end. took second place from General. The veteran Waterproof upset calculations in the last race when he drew away in the stretch to finish iu front of Pulaski and Newel W. Blueban-nock and Pulaski were the joint favorites here and their failure wound up a particularly bad time for the form backers. Jockey Clifford Robinson, the leading rider of America: Simpson Boyle, E. R. Bradleys crack lightweight pigskin artist, and the Preece brothers, Quentiu and Godfrey, who rode with much success nt Jefferson lark last spring, will join the riding Continued ou eighth page.
