margin of a head June Grass from the C A Cochrans stable was third The victor in fact the first three horses were outsiders in the speculation and a big surprise to the tremendous gathering which had supported Miss Joy and Pirate Gold in a confident manner mannerThe The bugle call which brought the field to the post for the Preakness was the signal that turned loose the pentup enthusiasm of the thousands that packed every available inch of the old hilltop grounds and when Galantman the first of the starters appeared on the track he was greeted with a cheer that grew in volume as the other horses paraded by the stand Miss Joy a bundle of nerves raced to the head of the parade and sought the company of the lead pony ponyAfter After a few minutes delay at the post starter Milton caught the field in alignment and sent them on their way to battle for one of the richest prizes of the year Jockey Lyke who was astride the Greentree stables main dependence Pirate Gold lost no time in getting to the front and he was followed by June Grass Pillory was racing in close pursuit while the peerless Miss Joy seemed in difficulty right from the start and her admirers were stunned to account for her plight plightWhen When settled on the backstretch June Grass assumed the lead for a brief spell but readily gave way when the Wilson starter challenged Pillory under Morris vigorous rid ¬ ing increased his advantage and it was well he did didOf Of the twelve starters Salubria stables Hea was the least considered with the ex ¬ ception of June Grass That fact was no deterrent to

of speed that everyone expected to see him snatch the victory right at the end endOn On he came with undiminishcd speed and gaining with every stride it seemed certain that he eventually would carry

sparated the first two at the end June Grass was third racing well throughout though tiring near the end endMiss Miss Joys performance was a puzzle to the horsemen and spectators alike She with her stable companion St Henry was an overwhelming favorite She was outrun from the start and apparently quit after going a half mile mileOf Of the other starters Pirate Gold and Galantman raced well while

Superlative 114 Thirty thousand ardent racing dsvotees swamped the accommodations at old Pimlico this afternoon and after the steeplechase race had been run crowded the infield The gathering was probably the largest that ever passed through the turnstiles of this his ¬ torical Maryland race course and tho finish of the Preakness brought every one that possessed any sporting spirit to his or her feet shouting encouragement to their favor ¬ ite iteThe The day which was threatened by rain late last night was clear and bright this morning and a sun blazed out of a cloudless sky The track responded quickly to the efforts of a largesized force of men and teams and when the field paraded for the first race was fast and springy The card which was built around the feature was a real good one and scintillating with races that could be of ¬ fered as a feature attraction attractionA A good contest came out of the running of the mile and a sixteenth selling handicap run as the fifth race The Pelican Stable provided the winner in Serapis ridden by Morris and the son of Sweep after racing the early pacemaker into defeat showed in front the remainder of the way He liad no easy time of it for Lunetta the favorite was pressing him hard at the end The pair fought it out all through the last sixteenth and only Morris hard riding enabled Serapis to outlast the fast finishing Lunetta King John was third but he never bothered the other two twoStar Star Jester came back and accounted for a sprinting race at threequarters which engaged some good sprinters Tho winner was ridden by Mooney and went to the front right after the start Reprisal dis ¬ played a fast burst of speed and wrested the lead and drew clear in the stretch by a safe margin Super which was knocked back right after the start was taken to the middle of the track and finished going faster than all of them The winner ran the dis ¬ tance in 1 11 but was out to the last ounce ounceThe The last race of the day fell to A Swinkes Dark Hill which was grouped in the field with Clean Gone The winner was ridden by J Rowan and made the running through ¬ out Smarty finished second while Clean Gone was third thirdThe The Consolation Steeplechase Handicap two and onequarter miles through the field was the introductory attraction of the after ¬ noon Five answered the bugle call and all finished the course without mishap Ral Parr furnished the winner in his consistent jumper Ireland The majority of the spec ¬ tators expected him to win but few realized that he would be forced to the last ounce to do so Neither did they expect to see such a thrilling finish in a steeplechase nor were they certain of the winner until the official placing was announced The judges deci ¬ sion was Ireland by a nose with Phoenix second and Vigilante third thirdAfter After a brief display of early speed Minata Minataave ave way to Phoenix and the Davis repre ¬ sentative showed much speed and jumped well to the tenth fence where he tried to bolt out of the course and lost much ground But for this he might have won wonHe He was not beaten easily however for after this mishap he came again and wrested tha lead from Vigilante which went to the front going to the last jump Then the real battle began Ireland had been saved for two miles and when Crawford called on him he responded with a game rush that carried him to victory but only after a terrific duel with Phoenix the result being in doubt until the final stride It was the greatest finish in a steeplechase seen at this course in years and the crowd was not slow to show their appreciation of the fine contest contestIn In the fiveeighths dash for maidens and winners of one race the second on the card J B Griffiths St Valentino again demon ¬ strated his superiority over F Farrars Wrangle The winner was tiring at the end after showing the way throughout He set a fast pace the quarter in 23 half in 47 and had a length margin over Wrangle as the winning line was reached The latter began slowly and but for this might have made it more interesting for the winner as he was gaining rapidly in the last sixteenth however too late to be of any avail availThe The Frenchbred LEffare which races in the colors of the Triple Springs Farm is speedy if nothing else He demonstrated that fact today in the third race a claiming affair at threequarters and demonstrated it in no uncertain terms termsAfter After being outrun for tho first half LEf fare saved ground on the turns and in a terrific burst of speed soon was on even terms with Hidden Jewel A brief battle ensued and brief it was LEffare once in the lead seemed to fly over tho ground so much so that he was six lengths in the lead and Lyke was easing him up as they crossed the winning line
