In a recent race site was woefully shy of speed, but jresterda Restful was fleet of foot and game to the con-. With the unfashionable jockey I»ong as her pilot she made all the pace and. withstandiu, repeated challenges, finally bested one of the extreme outsiders. Ar-gento. It was a heart rending and sinew straiuing struggle, in which she ultimately triumphed by a nose. The talent selected Clear the Way as their star of hope in the second race, but they were doosaei to disappointment, as Boas Akin, which recently won a race at hatter thai MB to 1. showed that her previous win was no fluke by coming right back to gain another victory. Coombs was second, with Careen third, while Clear the Way was out of the money. THREE DIVIDE RIDING HONORS. The riding honors of the day were divided among three jockeys, naiiedy. .1. Huutumer.
