Mexico. March 30 The one eyed sprinter Harrigans Heir showed himself lo be a jewel of consistency yesterday at Tijuana when he won the fifth race at three-quarters of a mile and thereby scored his fourth straight victory. The -on of Harrigan was forced to concede the honor favoritism to Tom Craven, which in his previous race finished a bang-up second to the good sprinter Arctic King. Again, however. Tom Craven met -with bad racing luck and when the smoke bad cleared away Harrigans Heir bad won another parse for owner "Pop" Walhauser. His margiu was nothing to boast of. but it was sufficient to show-that he is in rare form. He bested Queen of Trumps, the pacemaker, by a head in a spirited drive which lasted from the sixteenth post to the end. Finishing in third place was the unlucky Tom Craven. Like a cork on a rough sea this three-year-old encountered a stormy passage and was buffeted about and in other ways received harsh treatment. When he did secure a clear patch it found him finishing with a marvelous burst ot speed, but it came too late. It was poor mans day at Tijuana as regards the class of horses and the card was given over to the lowly plater. Races were arranged to suit the poorer class of horses so that these would have opportunity to earn their oats. Racing appears so popular thai even though yesterdays card was roedi-txere it drew a satisfactory crowd and the races were decided over a fast course under a cloudless sky. The most noticeable upset of the day came in the second race at five and one-half furlongs, in whicn the heavily -balked odds-on choice Social Star was humiliated before the speed of Full Moon and aaaaaa William-. In justice to Social Star it should be explained that he almost went to his knees at the start, so badly did he stumble. Although he gamely attempted to make up the lost ground hit effort was unavailing and third place was the best he could land. LONG SHOTS IN THEIR GLORY. Candegrey, at almo-t LO to 1. and Miss Kruter. paying better than Ihese figures, dealt the form followers a severe blow when they scrambled home fir-t in the opening and seventh races respectively. They were entirely overlooked by the rank and file, but those lucky ones who held pasteboards on them beamed with satisfaction and other characteristic expressions of joy when the official returns wer» posted. Harry Rudder, which in bis previous race scored an easy victory, came right back in the concluding contest and again made a show of his opponents, winning by five lengths in a canter. He beat Miss Dunbar, which lasted long enough to save second place by a nose from Plautagenet. Among the distinguished visitors at the eour-e yesterday were Col. A. N. McClure and L. T. Carpenter of the Remount Bureau, located at .Sacramento. Cal. They are here to purchase additional stallion material for the government. They in assess! several, but no sales were made. The horse Wcinland developed an sbsCesS on ths ankle and was excused out of the seventh race. Dr. T. J. Ogle, prominent western veterinarian, has applied the firing irons to Jean Corey and Ilrognaiue. These will be turned out at San Diego and rested up during the summer. The novel event of an owners handicap has been arranged as tie- piece de resistance for Sunday and it is causing much interest. Its purse is ,."U0 and president James W.
