Que., June 21.— The deluge that has swept over this territory for the past week broke out again this afternoon and as a result the track was in hopeless condition and left none but superior mud I runners to face the starter. There was no • carded feature and the program was given over to claiming races. The best of these ! was a dash of a mile and an eighth, which i brought out a well-matched band and the winner came from an unexpected quarter when Cote dOr, A. Swinkes recent acquisition via the claiming route, was home a winner ahead of Veteran and Star Realm. The winner was ridden by H. Gregory and was saved from the pace for the first part, but rounding the far turn was sent ! ! into a long lead. The advantage thus se-j j cured served him in good stead through the j final eighth, for he had to be had ridden to I j secure the decision. Veteran made a determined bid through the stretch, but quit badly and just had a short margin from Star Realm. The latter bore out at all turns, but closed fast on the outside. The weather had a depressing effect on the crowd, which was the smallest of the meeting. Racing, however, was of spirited order despite the fact that a majority of the v. inners was neglected by the public and returned large dividends. The second race of the afternoon witnessed a victory for Franc Tireur over Phantom j Pair. The winner was much the best and was forced to overcome repeated inter-ference through the stretch in addition to being carried wide by Phantom Fair through the final eighth. The stewards took prompt action and called J. Wallace into the stand and in addition to a lecturing suspended him for the remainder of the meeting. The opening dash of the afternoon re-• suited in the success of the longest priced winner of the meeting when Wrack Past was home by a short margin ahead of Mad Neil. The winner swerved through the final eighth at several dry spots which marked tiie course and at the finish had but a slight margin. SUSPENDED EOU ROUGH RIDING. Jockey M. Anderson was suspended yesterday by the stewards for rough riding for the remainder of the meeting. The stable of C. T.
