MONTREAL, Que., June 22.— The Queens i Hotel Cup Handicap, with ,000 added at a mile and a sixteenth, which was offered as ; the carded feature at Dorval Park this after-, noon, only had four contestants and the win- ner came from the stable of A. Swinke in ; Irish Dream, which easily defeated J. K. L. : Ross Registrar, with Planet third and the tjonly other starter. Star Realm, a distant! j ! follower. j The start found Irish Dream propping when | j the webbing was released, while Registrar | j was away forwardly. Rounding the first | j turn Star Realm ran out and eliminated his j | I chances, for Rowan attempted to take him | up. Irish Dream went to the front under I j slight pressure, while Registrar was the one i ! I to race in closest pursuit, with Planet some ! ! | distance back. This order was maintained for the entire race. Entering the stretch turn i j I Irish Dream went to the outside fence, while ! • Registrar came through on the inside. Greg- | ory plied the whip on his mount a few times and Irish Dream responded readily and drew away. Registrar had but a short margin on Planet at the end, for the latter closed a big gap and finished fast. Racing conditions at Dorval Park this aft- ernoon were decidedly unfavorable and the attendance dwindled down to the regular fol- lowers. The rain, which set in yesterday j afternoon, kept up during the night and throughout the day, bringing in its wake a cold and penetrating chill. The track re- sembled a minature mud lake and none but the stoutest mud runners were asked to per- form. The best finish of the afternoon came with the running of the second race, which was under claiming conditions at three-quar-I ters for maiden jockeys. The winner resulted in Phantom Fair, ridden by F. Graham, by a slight margin from Margaret White and Mayor House at the end. LITTLE A3I3IIE A SURPRISE. The Lillian Gish Purse Cup for threc-year-r olds and over, fillies and mares, was offered as the secondary feature and another upset was witnessed when Little Ammic was re- turned the winner in a drive from Madeline Lillian and Moco. She was ridden by P. P. Walls and came from behind the pace to win out in a hard drive. Miriam Cooper was the early pacemaker, but her effort did not carry her over half the journey before she gave way to Madeline Lillian. The latter opened up a big gap and threatened to draw away. Moco moved up with determination and Swart made the mis-, take of choosing the inside and deeper go-; ing. Little Ammie, running on the outside of her opponents, hung on with good cour-, age and held Madeline Lillian safe in the final drive. Mr. D. Raymond, president of the Queens Hotel Company, presented the cup which went to the winner of the feature race. The calculations of the players were in keeping with the conditions and many upsets were encountered during the afternoon. Mrs. H. Dattners Dunga Buck has been placed on the schooling list by the stewards following his last race. The entire Ross stable will leave tomorrow for Hamilton, with jockeys Turner and Ericsson accompanying it. J. B. Campbell received a message from Lew Williams, trainer of the Crown Stable, requesting stalls at the Hamilton meeting. Williams is at present in New York. P. G. Christopher reported this morning that the Canadian-bred Sir Clarence would be on the shelf for a few weeks. The horse came out of his last race badly cut. Barney Cole arrived at Fort Frie with the stable of G. L. Whiting, to be rested up until racing resumes at that point. ]
