EXTERMINATOR ONCE AGAIN Repeats Success of Last Year in Toronto Cup Ross Stable Wins Three Races. TORONTO, Ont, September 24. Fashion and beauty mingled with Ontarioans prominent in the business and professional world at the opening of the fall meeting at the Woodbine track this afternoon. The card provided was characteristic of the autumnal season in its entirety, it being studded with jeweled events that brought together the best the Canadian turf provides. There were no less than three fixtures that have had their renewals many times, covering a period from ten to seventeen years. The star attraction was the seventeenth running of the Toronto Autumn Cup at a mile and a quarter, from which nine were named out of an original nominating list of fifty-nine. This race in other years was won by such noted horses as Great Britain, Rancher, Plate Glass, Bouquet, Claude and Exterminator. All hail to the last mentioned. It was the same gallant old Exterminator, carrying the heavy impost of 137 pounds, which duplicated his victory of last year in the Toronto Cup this afternoon, defeating My Dear by a neck. Exterminator was ridden by Kelsay, who kept him under restraint to the stretch turn, where he took command, but at the end had to stand a hard drive to withstand My Dears challenge. Golden Sphere was third. In the running of the Toronto Cup last fall the first two horses occupied the same positions they did this afternoon, and the same distance separated the pair in that race. Another old stake feature decided was the Woodbine Autumn Steeplechase Handicap, over the two-mile course, which proved a most picturesque contest over the jumps. In fact the renewal of this race proved the most exciting one witnessed in many years. The winner turned up in Charles K. Harrisons excellent jumper Trnuspero, which managed to triumph in the last few strides by a narrow margin from Candidate II. Less than a length back came Sea Tale, with Coronado close up. The Maple Leaf Stakes, for Canadian-bred horses, at a mile and a sixteenth, brought out a fine group of thoroughbreds, with Sudor, representing-the Ross stable, defeating Witch Flower, carrying the Thorncliffe colors, and Reconnaissance the Brookdale Stable hopes. Sudor won decisively, although Witch Flower might have reversed matters had he not met witii considerable interference. It was a great day for the Ross stable, although the Commander was not here to witness the triumph of his horses. They won three of the races. The black and orange hoops flashed in front emphatically in the opening race, the Harwood Handicap, for the best sprinters at the track. Sailing B., with which the stable declared to win, and jockey Erickson, did as requested. He won with considerable to spare, while Clavcr, on Motor Cop, second string to the Ross bow, finished second and Major Parke a fair third. MARBLES HARD EARNED VICTORY. Marble, coupled with Elemental, carried the Ross colors to success in the second race, the Eglinton Plate, but it was no easily achieved victory, Stacy Adams pressing him hard at the end. Sudor was the third of the Ross horses to score, the Dorante filly capturing the Maple Leaf Stakes. Jockey Erickson was set down for four days for crossing the field witii Registrar in the cup race. The following are the officials for the meeting: Stewards, Col. Wm. Hendrie, Colin Campbell, Frank J. Bryan and A. E. Dyment. Representing Canadian Racing Associations, Francis Nelson. Judges, J. B.
