Davis Caligula was winner of the handicap at three-quarters, 1 for all ages, that featured todays racing at Laurel Park. Second portion went to Oil Man, 1 while Sailing B. was third. The winner was rid- den by L. Morris and this completed the third victory for this lad during the afternoon. 1 Sailing B. -was installed the favorite. The start was a good one. Oil Man was away forwardly with Caligula and Sailing B. in close pursuit. : Caligula was saved from the fast early pace 1 and kept under restraint. Rounding the bend into 1 the homestretch Morris slipped through on the rail with the Davis starter and this niove resulted 1 in victory. Oil Man bore over a trifle and-Sailing B. followed him out. In the run through the stretch Caligula closed with gameness under pressure and won going away. Oil Man held the Ross starter safe for second place. Vibrate, the other starter, was always outrun and had scant . chance in that company. Small fields predominated during the afternoon, but racing was of a spirited order. The players 1 had a good line on the majority of the starters and the different winners were well supported. Weather conditions wore all that could be desired and a crowd of remarkable proportions for. a Friday was on hand to witness the decision of the card. The followers of form got a good start when Harry Payne Whitneys Prudish accounted for the opening dash of the afternoon. This marked the first score by jockey Morris and the victory was a popular one. Prudish was saved from the. .early pace and when taken around the leaders at the far turn drew into the lead and won with speed in reserve.

Osgood was second and Peggy Rives third. The winter raced forwardly all the way and passed Camouflage when well straightened out in the stretch run and held Osgood safe at the finish. The latter was forced to overcome the disadvantage of a slow beginning and the, effect proved tdo severe. MOCO WINS BY INCHES. From a racing standpoint the best race of the day was the third race, which engaged a small band of two-year-olds. The winner, Moco, was sent to the post by trainer Kelly for B Harding and her success was achieved ill the last strides of a ter-, rific finish, besting Ultimate by a nose. The latter displayed good speed during the early stages, but could not stand off the rush, of the daughter of -i Zeus. Who Cares, racing for Frank Farrar, was an easy winner of the fourth race, a dash of one mile. Old Sinner was the one to show the way for the greatest part of the race, while Lang had the ultimate winner under restraint.

This marked Morris fourth victory of the afternoon. The start was a good one. Oriole was quickest to get into motion and sprinted into a short lead, pressed by Polly Ann and Clarkson. The latter quit before a half mile had been covered, while Polly Ann was still under slight restraint.
