The overthrow of five favorites resulted in the layert ntrievianj some of tlieir Josses of yesterday. Tlieir profits, however, wen not extensive, lor all the a l—MI came in for a • liandsome share of support. District attorney Marr played his intial card ; during t tn - day when lie filed informations against Catty Mica layers and their cashiers. Tkese were ■ the names of those who operated on the opening , Oay. None of the men i hailed with viola tioaa knew ,f the incident until after the last race, when ion was rjvea tliem to report to the ahcr ; iffs office to furnish bond in the sum of 90. This they loi. The arreatfac, if such it coald be . termed, was decorous and orderly, few eatable of the men against wheal informations had boon filed being aware at any time that anything but the ordinary routine had happened in connection with the racing. What further course district attorney Marr will puisne continues problematical, but there is a gen ernl feeling that the racing will not he interrupted during any of the fifty days period. The Fair irounds management is well fortified with aa array of legal talent to establish their right in law to : operate under the present system, which is held by them to be strictly within the moaning of the Ba- , preme Court findings in the Austin and M, lirido rases. They are additionally baeyed up by the overwhelming pabUe sentinsent favorable to the lacing as conducted hen at Sareeeat. THARON FURNISHES UPSET. Qeerge .1. Longs Tharoa faraiabed the upset in the first feature race wbea he won from the tractions post BCtiaC Our Dear, with Cray Cables, the favorite. winding up m third place, our Dear, daring her post sojourn, reared up and fell heavily, but during the running of the race showed no ill «-f f eta. There were only four to start in the aeCOad feature race and it resulted in victory for Thimble, which ran as if much the best, for abe appeared "without a chance in the early running, bat a in her opponents down la game style and had a fairly good margin over Neddam at the end. Pastoral Swam landed third hi re. with the early pacemaker. War Zone, quitting badly in the stretch Twelve two-yea i olds opened pro« codings with a dash of three eighths and Kitty Williams, a daugh-ti of Qraaite — Dust Paa II., spreadeagled the others and won by nearly 100 yards. It was the greatest winning margin ever noted 1 ere in a two-year-old dash of such a short distance and it stamped the winner as above the ordmaiy. or els. these she met are of mighty poor caliber. Her time was fast. 3.V... which is four-fifths of a BBCead slower than the track record. Lady P.oss finished .-e-ond and afeatfort Jones Nowata third. Many of the starters tired green. Kitty Williams was favorite and well supported. Kusee was another favorite to win for the t lient. The May filly had to be ridden hard, however, to aatatay Simple Simon, a quietly backed good thing. VICTORY FOR C. W. CLARK, The C. W. Clark colors were carried to victory in the third race by Gainmer Pattern, but it was in part due to Garners rough riding that he landed the purse. Beginning fsasa an outer position lamer Rot the otheis of the field all jammed whin he cut across in front and it gave him a big advantage. He only managed to beat Petie, however, by a scant neck after a hard drive. Young; Adam upset calculations when he beat Solid Koek home after a hard drive in the sixth race. The closing race found I,azy Lou and Horeb joint favorites, but the winner turned up in Galiot. Lazy Lou landing in second place, with Challenger third. Trainer Eugene Leigh signed jockey Everett Haynes to take back to France with him. They will sail next week. Leigh lias one of the largest stables on the French turf under his care.
