IDEAL RACING CONDITIONS Bring Out Large Crowd to Kenilworh Park-Second Straight for Yowell. WINDSOR, Out., October C. Racing conditions could not have been improved on at Kenilworth this afternoon. Summerlike weather and an attractive card of seven races proved a strong magnet and a large gathering turned out to witness the sport. A ,600 handicap, at a mile and seventy yards, was the principal attraction and it resulted in an easy victory for Yowell, which defeated his opponents in easy fashion. This marked Yowells second victory at the meeting and in his present form he appears invincible in the races for Cana-dian-breds. J. K. L. Ross Oriole, which beat a band of fast racers at Woodbine on the closing day of that meeting, today ran true to the form he showed in that contest and easily triumphed in the third race. He made all the pace and Erickson had him under restraint at the finish. This race brought together the best field that went to the post during the afternoon, including the English horse Golden Sphere. The latter had a bit of bad luck In the race in starting slowly and suffering some interference rounding the far turn. It is doubtful, however, if he could have beaten the winner, As it was he was beaten by a nose for second place by Day Lilly. The Buxton stable, which has been in none too good luck lately, furnished the winner of the opener in Mabel Curtis, which won easily from Crestwood Boy. Marmite made a runaway affair of the second and was only cantering at the finish. The Sweep filly paid 9.60 for in the mutules. Cormoran, the favorite, finished second a nose in front of Great Hawk, which in turn only beat Betsinda by a head. Frank J. Bruen, general manager of the Cuba-American Jockey and Auto Club, has written that he will be here on Monday next, to advise with turfmen who contemplate racing their horses in Cuba next winter. Arrangements have been completed for a special to leave the Kenilworth track at the conclusion of the meeting and to unload at the chute at Oriental Park. Trainer Fred Scholke reports that the good Canadian-bred Witch Flower has been retired for the year. The mare spread her foot yesterday and will be on the shelf for five or six weeks. Jockey Harbounie was set down for two days by the stewards for rough riding in the seventh, race on Wednesday. Mr. X. got the better of his rider this morning while being galloped and ran away three miles. This was responsible for his being withdrawn in the sixth race. Francis Nelson received the stake blanks of th fixtures to be run at the Tijuana meeting next winter and they were distributed among the horsemen. Starter Harry Morrissey received a wire from Leon Wing that he would arrive from Maryland tomorrow,
