BASHFORD MANOR TO CASEY Gives His Mate Rekab a Beating in a Fine Race Paul Weidel in Form Again and an anEasy Easy Victor More Rain Rainand and Mud LOUISVILLE Ky May 11 The G F Baker pair of twoyearolds Casey and Rekab continue to carry on and like in the ldle Hour Stakes at Lexington they again led all opponents to tho finish but in this instance it was Casey which was victor reversing the order with Rekab Their success this afternoon came in the longestablished Bashford Manor Stakes having a net value to the winner of 1900 The distance of the race was four and a half furlongs and five went to the post but as Bracdalbane and Royal Palm owned respec ¬ tively by Lawrence Lewis and Desha Breckenridge are trained by S Chenault they ran coupled as an entry Adventure was the other starter The Baker pair ruled overwhelming favorites but their supporters were given an anxious period when Braedalbane striding away in front took a good lead and showed the way to the others in a manner that promised success for him Rekab which had been following closest did not seem to be able to strike his stride fully and Casey was also tardy On the stretch turn Casey seemed to have overcome difficulties and began moving up witli a rush although coming wide Braedalhnne how ¬ ever did not seem to diminish his stride to any appieciable extent and it was only in the last eighth that he relinquished command to Casey Meantime Rekab had also begun to strike his best pace and he charged on his stable companion but the finish found them separated by a full length with Braed ¬ albane tiring and sprawling near the end endSteady Steady rain during the night and intermittent showers today precluded any possibility of other than a heavy track It was responsible for numer ¬ ous withdrawals from the different dashes exrept in the second which found the limit number going to the barrier Considering the unpropitious weather a surprisingly huge attendance again was present Despite the difficult track some highly interesting sport developed and the finishes in sev ¬ eral varietyThe instances were of the closest variety The mile handicap serving as the secondary fea ¬ ture proved an easy affair for Paul Weidel In ¬ cidentally it showed a return of that crack racer to good form and he will be given critical considera ¬ tion in those future races that he will engage in here He ran freely in the going and disposing of Nancy Lee in the first half mile raced into a good lead and held Sands of Pleasure safe through tiie stretch Sands of Pleasure ran a good race Nancy Lee which was making her debut before a Kentucky racing public and which is intended to start in the Kentucky Oaks next Saturday made an im ¬ pressive showing Woodtrap and Sterling were always far
