La., February 18, The i ;i ir v Btaawis again |Ti -ented a scone of brilliancy and A nana racing activity surpassing thai at any arerlaaa *1 ilay during the meeting, including the opening day. »l maka a«aaHj eaiika aff 1 1 « c- palm. Ia tin- big ■ assemblage were many notable visitors from iiataat B states aad t lioy displayed a wholesome relish Ear t lie A exciting raeiac that araa faralabed. Nearly all the equine cracks in them parts started w in some af the daahea aad raeeaners here were af- M forded an opportunity to inspect Mime Der! y possi N bilities that may cut an extensive figure in the B results of some of the American premier three-year- L old stakes. Mn-1 of the youngsters raced in ■ D fashion that warrants giving them sharp eanaiaera- 9 tion when they come up to the line to try conelu- Bt. Bions with those not in winter quarters. B The Proteus Handicap was the star race and fur- L I.e nisheil a rattling contest, as well as did some of V. the others, but the real feature of the BfterBOOa was ■*■ the splendid riding of E. Barnes, under Lea tl act * to B. It. Bradley, who suddenly took a big brace " J and was successful ea four of his mounts in sue- eaaalaB. The finisii in the three ■year-aid d.isii was - h thriller and it had the big crowd in a frenzy. It C also served to introduce By Cosh and Lighter, a J jiair of newcomers that may make their mark in - this rears raeing. La * The crack Guy. although assigned the steadying - impost of 122 pounds, found the most favor in the Irotens Handi-ap and. while he succeeded, it was only after he had given Ma supporteis an anxious = aeried, for he appeared doomed to defeat when rounding into the stretch and several in the field t were far in advance of him. He continued on resolutely, however, and. benefited by having saved some ground, was enabled to outfinlsh the ont- sweiving Bunga Bath. The latter again displayed laiuanintf arj and ran in far superior fashtaa to that of his previous raee. Wynnewood landed third, showing a good performance and only suecttmbing in the last seventy yards The Bet vnlti" of tile race to the winner amounted to 0H. Tic time of the race for the mile and an eighth was within one fifth af I second of the track record of 1:51%, ■ J made in 1MB. BT GOSH Dl LAST STRIDE. The three year-eeda arere asked ta go one mile • and the betting market found the highly regaided Lighter installed favorite, with By Cosh also much J in demand, and both making their initial three-year- otd achat. By Gaah Beared the lachiest aad won in the last few strides from Ballot Mark, with Lighter in third place: but it aras clearly indicated this aft from being raced I I 1 ci noon, for he suffered extensively wide and also from the frequent bumping that he . was given by By Gaah during the Stretch racing. A r-laba of foul that Garaei made aras not allowed, althoagh the stewards gave it weighty consideration. Barnes began his succession of victories in the third race, ia arhieh he had the mount on Centime- ; ter. That racer showed all his old-time form, and aratwd much the heat, Irish Dream being h.s I rinses! [Hiiaaci at the finish, with Mavounioon heading the others. Tippity Witehet, of which 1 linich was expected, raced in dull style. Cuy was the next successful mount that Banes piloted and he followed it with a victory on By Gash and in the succeeding dash brought Wade-worths List home, which won from Soourgeman i and High dear. The com lttding race was taken by the well-backed 1 British Liner from Bond, which just managed to ouf-tay Old Faithful. KITTY WILLIAMS DEFEAT HARD BLOW. The top-heavy favorite. Kitty Williams, stiff-red 1 an ignominoiis defeat in the initial dash, failing « to get any part of the purs-. Prince K.. under * Zoclbrs be~t riding, won with ease. It was a ■ different sort of a ride than Zoellor gave him today f and he showed real merit by the ease with which lu-won ■ . Trainer .1. BT. McDonald saddled Kitty Williams s in the first race in the absence of C. F. lark, regular tiaincr of the J. 11. Ijiuchheim stable, lark departed for Kentucky, where his mother is seriously ill. Jockey .1. It. Mooney wa- suspended for four days s bv the stewards for rough riding in the aeeaad d r.i e. He was on Grayson, the winner of the c race. Hall Brothers returned from Mexico City with h Lett! G. anil Bauline M.. the latter a two-year-old. ! This js the first stable to come back from the e Mexican meeting and it is unlikely thai any more e will head this way now. as the local season has is only eight more days to run. let-hap Lewis Morris reported on the sick list it today. Jockey F. Coltiletti substituted for him on ,n illppilj LI m hi the Irotens Handicap Verity again changed hands. T. K. Crist claiming ig he* out of tin- sixth race for SJ.000. Crist was is represented in the race by Walnut Hall. T. Griffin trotted out a new jockey today. W. r. Biower. He had the mount on Superglaria in the le two-year-old race. Centimeters three-quarters in 1:12% in the Starlight r- Burse was the lM-st time for this distance at it the meeting. It served to demonstrate that the rte Meelick colt is himself again and no sprinter in these parts will worry him much during the brief period left of the meeting. Jockey Frank Coltiletti leaves tomorrow night for or Red BMnk. N. J., to join James Bowe of the Harry r.v Pavne Whitney stable. The Whitney establishment nt wiil be moved to one of the New York tracks within h- a few weeks. James J. Lyons of Morristown. N.
