MY REVERIE UNDEFEATED Wins Demoiselle Stakes for Her 1 Fourth Straight Victory. : Tuckahoe Handicap Only a Canter for Royce Rools Another for Grey Lag. XKV YOKK. X. Y., July 11. Mondays Empire City stake race was the Demoiselle, worth .,720 and for two-year-old fillies. Seven were named for it and all went. My Heverie, the Iltimus Keflex filly, which started to win early in the year at New Orleans, and has not yet been beaten, scored her fourth victory. There was an open . market over the seven. All were in it and Hose Brigade was always the choice, but without au- l. thority. My Keverie and Lucky Button were next j fancied. ,., Clarence Kumnier rode My Keverie, and. off well, J. she vaced with the fast and quick beginning Nancy F, well into the stretch. The first quarter was in j 32 seconds. It was a nice lookiug finish between three, for Penitent and Penman were coming. My Heverie. in the tracks center, Nancy F. at the rails and Penitent between them, seemed about to call for separating judicial vigilance. But My Rev- erie came gallantly home when Kummer asked her the serious question and she won with a bit left and clear of Penitent, she as far before Nancy F., which doesnt seem to stay on with her great speed. There were real cheers for My Keverie as she won and when she came back. The filly has won four , jrood races. She cost 1,000 at Saratoga last August and is in a modest stable.

The Arcadia was for two-year-old sellers at five and a half furlongs and the market was about three Lady Delhi, Timbrel and Marsdale all winners. Timbrel should have won. Lady Delhi did win. She was best away, got all she deserved in a riding way from Cltiletti whose style suits her sorry kind made al the fast running and lasted to win by a bare half length from Timbrel, which was away slowly, made up ground us she went along, but couldnt quite get up under Fators urge. Marsdale, speedy as usual, tired in the last eighth. He had no excuse. AVELL-BACKED SAMMY KELLY WINS. Only eight of the seventeen entries in the Putnam Purse at one and a sixteenth miles for selling platers survived pencils. Four or five of the best wore eliminated. Of them Pickwick, Knight of the Heather and Gipsy Lad were the chosen. Sammy Kelly, slippery upon occasion, was well supported and won. Sande was behind both backing and victory. When Knight of the Heather and Pickwick had dingdonged one another pretty well in front running, Sammy Kelly had most left and Sande kept him going with vigor to the end. to win by more than his own tired length. Old Pickwick, with his usual array of knotty legs, got into the fray in the stretch and Elisor rode him powerfully, but he could only land second. Herd Girl, which is nearly ready when the going suits her, was a distant third. The pace was quite fast for such horses. Outside the real cracks elderly Koyce Kools can hold his own in racing about here. He won the Tuckahoe Handicap at the convenient one mile and seventy yards route in runaway fashion. Air ami going suited the old fellow. Travers has evidently got his training number correctly. Koyce Kools was not the favorite. Pun Kose was given that place and backed as a surety. Of course, this was all wrong. The right horse won. Pen Hose fluttered in. front for a leisurely three-eighths. Then Kennedy took Koyce Kools bad name and all to the front and he won as if he enjoyed it by the lengths. Pen ISose was second, but she -ran a uuil rate and had none of her usual early speel. Stdgefield, the only other starter, was slow also and third. OLD TING-A-LING SCORES. There are so many bad horses in the stables around New York that they clutter up the programs over races for their kind. There were only thirty-four in the Lively Purse, at selling weights, over the about three-quarters mile course. There are plenty of pencils, though, and owners of such animals arc merely hoping and speculating when they enter them. So when the "brass tacks" of the melee were shown sixteen bad horses only were before the barrier. Some of those could have been spared. Old Ting-a-Ling, with Elisor up, was among the starters. She was backed. The oily Tilings was treated as a superior sort. She might have been, but she was away badly and in a tangle and never got near the lead. Midian. Arrowhead, Ting-a-Iilng and Turnabout, off in the first flight, had it out between themselves. Had Arrowhead run straight lie would have won easily. But near the sixteenth post he bolted and ran out and Ting-a-Lllig. his nearest attendant agreeing with Elisor in the finish came on to win by a length. Even Turnabout headed the rolling Ar.-owheud. which managed to land third. The Bryn Mawr Purse at a mile for three-year-olds promised a good contest until five of the eight entries were scratched. Grey Lag was left in with only Quecreek and Parader to oppose him. The Uuncocas crack was at prohibitive odds and lay away Quecreeks slow pace for some five-eighths in 1:02--.. then Sande scut Grey Lag to the front and he galloped home well in hand, to win by three lengths. It wasnt a race. Monday is usually a dull day at Empire City. The duy comes too soon after Sunday for the notions of its regulars.
