Y., October 21. Tito Foreign Stables Hilly McLaughlin, carrying toy weight of 11S pounds, completed ii double for his owners and for Clarence Kumnior, -who rode biin. by winning the Keystone Handicap at Km pi re City today. He jtifct lasted to beat Frigate by a bead, with Sedge-field third. Kurami-r sent the Wrack eolt to the front at once and opened up a long lead on the backstrctch. Frigate was kept in close pursuit of Hilly Mclaughlin through the early part of the race and closed with a burst of speed when Turner called on him. He was gaining rapidly in the final eighth, hut Kummer just managed to get bis tiring mount across the finish with a heads advantage. Scdgofield received considerable attention from the speculators, but he was early outrun, in spite of a ten-pound weight concession from Hilly Mclaughlin. He was never able to threaten the loaders, although lie easily outlasted Two Feathers, . which showed dull speed and tired. The, track bad dried well from the rains of Thursday, but the weather, though clear, was too cold, for yomfort. The crowd, was up to the average, however, and the racing, though given over to the cheaper grade of horses, was of a satisfying nature. Tiiu change from Uabin to Turner worked won-d;rfl wjJh,wt;ote dOr. The Ilono colt won the third raei! fronvSriiarty, with Solid Hock third. Turner kept Cote dOr well up during the early part of the race, while MeAtee was burning up the track with Smarty out in front. He wore the leader down in the stretch and forged to the front in the final strides to win by a bead. Solid Hock rushed up in the stri-teh to take the short end of the purse. He tired near the finish, however, and just lasted to beat Lord Herbert. Orderly was the favorite, but be did not figure seriously in the running. Queen Hlonde also received considerable support, but she could not improve bur position after a slow start. Nose Dive, ridden by Miller, got the jump on the other two-year-olds in the Hollyhock Purse, which opened tin; card, and won easily from Night-boat and Sweepy. Nose Dive was an outsider in the betting, although be received considerable, support. Sweepy was the favorite. Sweepy saved ground and got into the money, but Wilson had allowed the leaders to secure too much of an advantage early and his mount was beaten by the ! time the stretch was readied. GOOD RIDE HELPS MONASTERY. Monastery, under a well-judged ride by Clarence Kummer, defeated Fast View and McKenna in the second race, at about three-quarters of a mile. Monus.tery ran on Thursday with Kumiuers apprentice brother in the saddle, but he finished last. Today the gelding was much the better ridden, lie kept in close pursuit of McKenna, which jumped into the lead at the start, and took the lead when called on, and won going away. East View made a strong bid in the stretch after slipping through next to the inside rail at the turn, but tired under pressure and unit badly at the end. Clarence Turner, whose sensational riding in recent weeks has been a feature of metropolitan racing, tied with Kummer for the days saddle honors when lie scored with Dioinvdes in the fifth race, completing a double. First lullet was second and Sea Mint third. Diomedes came up with a rush after a slow start and wore down one leader after another. He passed Sea Mint on the turn and was drawing away through the stretch to win by a good margin. First Pullet dropped back after hold-in? the lead for a short distance and responded gamely in the stretch to beat the tiring Sea Mint for second place. Diomedes was a. well-backed favorite and the Turner following gave their rider a big hand when he returned to the judges stand. The Lexington Stables entry, Lucky Hour and My Play, finished one two in the last race, with Stiicy Adams third. Robinson sent Lucky Hour into the lead soon after the start and drew away steadily to win by five lengths.
