D. and C. HANDICAP TO ESTERO Hendrie Racer Triumphant Over Minute Man in Great Finish. : Aloft First in Secondary Attraction Large Monday Crowd Sees Spirited Racing. : WINDSOH, Out., August 22. G. M. Hendries Kstero was returned the winner of the D. and. C. Stakes, which was offered as the feature attraction at Windsor this afternoon, scoring in a driving finish from Minute Man, witli Hildur in third place. The winner was ridden by jockey H. Pool, came from behind and. working her way up on the outside, drew abreast of Minute Man in the final stride. The race was a dash of three-quarters of a mile to which ,000 had been added and it brought together a fast band of good racers. Eddie Bicken-bacher was asked to shoulder top weight of 130 pounds and. despite his heavy burden, was the choice over the Hendrie entry. The start was a good one and Minute Man was the first to show iu front, pursued by Sewell Combs. The latter soon retired and Pool brought Kstero into closer contention with the result mentioned above. After the contest G. M. Hendrie was called to the stewards . stand and presented with a piece of plate as a memento of the race by one of the officials of the Detroit and Cleveland Navigation Co., for which the stake was named. Apart from the feature attraction the card was an attractive one and served to bring together well-balanced fields. Of secondary importance to the stake race a dash framed for two-year:phls at three-quarters of a mile was productive .of a spirted contest. It was a well-matched band that-faced the starter in the race and Aloft, from the Greentrce Stable, was returned the winner in the closing strides over Dorothy Buckncr, with Billy Dunn third. Todays track conditions were all that could be desired and ideal weather conditions served to bring out a good sized Monday crowd. The days racing was of a formful variety and productive of thrilling finishes, several of the races being decided in the final strides. SUN TURRET SHOWS IMPROVEMENT. A dozen maidens, three-year-olds and over, including Sun Turret, for which J. K. L. Boss paid .000 as a yearling, made up the field in the first race of the afternoon. The talent saw nothing to fear in Sun Turret and centered the activities on Kinglike. The result of the race showed the wisdom of their choice, although Kinglike was forced to the last ounce to beat Sagamook, a first, time starter from the G. M. Hendrie Stable. The latter would have won iu another stride. Sun Turret ran well, though apparently a trifle short. The race for Canadian-breds, three-year-olds and over, run as the second, was a thriller from start to finish. Six faced the starter, but only three. Mandarin, Aiola G. and Waac, were tin; real contenders. The latter led to the stretch, where Mandarin took up the running, but had to be hard driven to withstand the terrific closing mh of Viola G. The three horses were almost abreast as they neared the finish line and only the judges could separate them at the end. J. S. Wards three-year-old Mcrrimae was staunchly supported in the third race and he might have won with a more competent rider in the saddle. The race was at one mile and a sixteenth for three-year-olds and over and called for jockeys who bad never won a race. When Mcrrimae moved up and threatened King George, which led throughout, his rider was of no use to him, although only beaten by a small margin. Following the running of the closing race on Saturday Goldine was claimed by II. Liugelbach, who was represented in the race by Lady Lillian. Bert Williams, who has a small string in active training in New York, arrived from Saratoga this morning. Mr. Williams will ship to Devonshire. Kirk Harrington, accompanied by Has Pendleton, arrived from Saratoga this morning, and will remain for the remainder of the meeting. They will motor from here to Last St. Louis before the opening at Latonia.
