CLEVELAND RACING SPIRITED Finishes Close and Exciting, Particularly in Fourth Race, Won by Sheba. CLEVELAXD, Ohio, October 28. Bright skies today brought out the largest week-day crowd of the meeting. The spectators were well rewarded for their journey, as the racing was interesting and marked by exceedingly close finishes. The Ladies Purse, which was the feature attraction of the day, resulted in one of the closest finishes seen at the local track. A blanket would have covered the first four horses, srieba, ridden by the diminutive A. Jacobs, was kept in close pursuit of the leaders in the racing down the backstretch, secured an opening next to the inner rail at the turn into the homestretch and under most vigorous riding wore down Manicurist in the final strides. Manicurist set a dazzling pace in the early stages, but went wide entering the home-Stretch, which practically caused her defeat. F. Wright saddled the winner of the opening race when his Olympiad easily raced Wedding Prince into defeat, with Ashlin, the favorite, finishing third. Olive James, after twice being second, succeeded iu winning a purse for her owner when she lasted long enough to ;:et a head decision from Bengalese in the second race. Thirteen made it a double for trainer Wright when he won the third. He outran his opponents all the way and was never seriously threatened. The mare Rainbow Girl had to be destroyed this morning as the result of injuries received when she fell in her race yesterday afternoon. Stuart Polk arrived this morning from Laurel with the main division of his stable, which consists of eight horses. Jim Arthur sent along the horse Kingling II. in charge of Arthur Brent. Otto Torrell also was an arrival with his string. Jockeys Leo Mink and J. P. Ryan today joined the jockey colony. Tom Doyle wired from Louisville to reserve stalls for him. F. Staton shipped his string of horses to New Orleans today. The clever apprentice jockey J. Merimee accompanies the stable. Official word was received here from judge Morrison of the Quebec Breeders Association, Montreal, of the reinstatement of jockey Joe Dominick. i i . k I , , ; 1 j j ; j 1 1 j t s s 1 s I . i s ? - -
