It was strictly a Nevada victory, for the filly Erase was the winner, with the gelding Melachrino second and the gelding 1aber third. All are by Atheling II. and all were bred at the Nevada Stock Farm. A grand holiday crowd turned out for the rtinning of tin- two-year-old event and a field of tell "peppy" youngsters paraded to the post. The delegation of race fan., from Reno, who arrived Tuesday night, were in their glee, for, aside from the off-spiing of Atheling II. previously mentioned, thlfl imported stallion was also represented by Dan Hogan and Lady Myra. Melachrino was made an odds-on choice and there were few to be found who would dispute his chance-of winning the major portion of the purse. He had the inside rail position and all seemed favorable for him lieing a i to ." chance. It was good for all. for starter Harry Merrieee* sent the baby racer* away on a perfect alignment. Melachrino a -away faultlessly and momentarily showed in front, but was interfered with and shuffled rearward. .Melachrino waa passed by all ut Smiling Voter and Norfield. At the first call Faber had assumed the lead and by this time Melachrino with long-uieasured strides was working his way upon the outside of the others. At this call Judge Hanecy was second and Erase third. The rest of the youngsters were well stretched out. Turning for home Faber showed a head in front of Judge Hanecy. which was three lengths ahead of Erase. Melachrino was running fast now and was fourth. In the stretch Melachrino. still traveling on the outside, displayed the speed of a meteor. Erase passed Judge Hanecy and Faber, but still had to reckon with Melachrino. However, there was not enough distance left and Erase crossed the winning line in a driving finish three-quarters of a length ahead of Melachrino. The latter, in finishing second, beat Faber by the same maigin. while Faber lasted long enough to head Judge Hanecy for third place. The secondary feature of the afternoons card of eight races recorded the downfall of the heavilv weighted Motor Cop. from the C. B. Irwin stable. He had 14."i invalids up. Ibis son of Incle. coupled with Bedan as the Irwin entry, got no part of the Washingtons Birthday Handicap, at five and one-half furlongs. In a battle of speed for part f the distance Rapid Stride, favored by the light impost of 104 pounds, took the measure of Union II. and won by a length. The latter hung on to get second place, with Planet, lightly weighted, takiag the small end of the purse. The sport was ushered in with a five and a half furlong dash, in which Jeeie Gonaaa, with Jockey Himiamer in the saddle, won with ease from Black lop and Tom Caio. Glee Well and Cavalcadour II. had the seventh race to themselves, the first and second choices. Hob Raker and I.uckhorn II.. never being in the ii-m flight ilea Well was returned the winner w lien he raced past the pacemaker. Cavalcadour II., io win by the l"st part of a length. Walter H. Perce was third. Mannchen and Salgeorge. which ruled the favor ites in the third and fourth races, appeared to out-claaa their ovaaaeata in the going which prevailed and both won by wide margins. Little Romper annexed his sixth set of brackets when he led all the way in the concluding race. lie son of Don Johnson is a good horse in the mud, as was attested by his race yesterday.
