Kilmers Sallys Alloy again proved ber worth when sh" finished lirst in the Clover Stakes from ;i speedy hand of fillies at Aqueduct today. It was the feature race of the day and was worth .S75 to the winner. James B. Smiths Silk Tassel raced to second place and Wal- i ter .1. Salmans 111 Dorado took third money. The track was deep In mud from the rain of Tuesday night and the early morning; and the changed going; resulted in a number of scratches, but good spurt resulted and there sras a surprisingly large crowd out, considering the threatening; weather. Seven bad been carded for the "lover, but Henna. Thessaly and Twaddle were withdrawn. Dream 1 ays was added from the li. P, Whitnej stable to bear Cresta, the top-weight, company. Little time was lost at 1 he barrier and the start was a good one. Silk Tassel proved the most all rt in leaving the barrier, but Simplex soon raced by her with Crochet and Sallys Alley In dose attendance Cresta began well, but her inability to be under way as Quickly as the others resulted in her being quickly pocketed in her inside position. Sallys Alley was hanging on well and Kl Dorado, racing well out in the track, was striding along resolutely and making up ground. Cresta was going well by that time, but she had scant chance to come through. Silk Tassel held to her lead until well inside the i last eighth, where Johnson brought Sallys Alley u with a winning rush and at the end she was going away. SUk Tassel beat the fast finishing 11! Dorado by a length and a half and then followed Crochet, Solisa and Cresta in very close order. The victory of Sallys Alley mad.1 it three stakes that Eugene Waj land lias taken down ; at the Aqueduct meeting for Mr. Kilmer, when Exterminator won the Brooklyn Handicap. Sunference the Hudson and Sallys AUej the over. For the second race the offering was a six and a half furlong dash for the cheapest kind of selling platers and with twenty-eight carded there were twelve went to the post. Liberty Girl proved easily best and aft r ■tiller Pad ridden her clear of her opponents in the first quarter he simply bad to sit still and hold bis advantage, Mrs. j. u Hollands Uen. Cadorna was the one to race second and W. c. Clancys Ting-a-Ling saved third from Beckna. Baffles, the two-year-old son of Luke Mo-Luke and Phebe O., that races for Jos. L. Widener. proved himself a real good mud runner when he was winner1 of the opening dash, a Jive-eighths affair for selling plater maidens. Twelve of them went to the post and the Nevada Stock Farms Cork Kim finished second, with James B. Smiths l ady Inez third. Cork Elm was the one to set the early i pace, but before the last eighth was reached Raffles had passed him ond Keogh opened up a safe lead to have him home an easy-winner. Cork Kim was having trouble in the going at the end, but lasted to save second place easily by half a dozen lengths from the Smith filly. Comic Song found the going just to his liking and he was an easy winner of the mile of the Fair Play Selling Handicap that was the third offering. Mrs. R. F. Carmans | Kxcuse Me raced into second place and 11. J. Murphys Thimble was a distant third. The only other starters were "War Mask and Master Hand, and they finished as named. Iang lost no time in sending Comic Song into the lead and he was good enough to hold command throughout. Thimble was hard urged to hold second place and Thomas ! was at her almost all through the race. She tired in the stretch and Kxcuse me had no trouble beating her for second money. There was a long delay at the post in the mile of the tilth race for which Camoufleur was to blam and then when the start came he and Spearlene were virtually left at the post. The winner turned up in Frederick Johnsons Carnarvon and Cahalan took second place from Mount Hope. Carnarvon was good enough to lead practically all the way. but at the end he was bearing out rather badly and doing his best Cahalan has about the worst action of any thoroughbred in training. He runs with his head high in the air and he climbs. He was second all the way and was carried a bit wide in the stretch by the winner until Thomas took him back and finished on the inside. Cordelier was badly kicked in his last race and it may have an effect on his future performances. There were enough horses scratched out of the Aqueduct program to furnish a day of racing themsehes. In all thirty-four declined, but most of the fields were large enough to make the pruning desirable, though it brought the last race down to two horses, Bersagliere and Flying Cloud.
