Ross colors were again much in the limelight at Hamilton this afternoon when trainer McDaniel saddled a pair or winners for the Montreal sportsman and finished second j ! in another race. | I The first section of the Ross double came ] with the running of the first race when the I two-year-old Flag of Truce outlasted Wild . Life in a furious drivo over the five-eighths journey. I Registrar completed the double when he | accounted for the Grimsby Handicap, the j feature attraction of the afternoon. It was I j pretty contest until the final sixteenth, where Registrar demonstrated his superior!- | ! ty over his opponents. The start found the j I field leaving in good alignment, with Lady J Heave displaying the most speed, and Planet , Was unfortunate in being squeezed back to I 1 last place and losing much ground. Round- ■ i ing the first turn Crack o Dawn was the i one to establish the pace, while he was pursued i j by Registrar, with the others in close I Conaation within easy striking distance. When well settled on the backstretch footn I Dresden and Planet were sent in pursuit of the leaders and there was a general dosing j up. Planet, however, was forced to come to the outside, while Crack o Dawn was next I to the inner rail, with Registrar racing in j the middle. Turner called upon Registrar | and he responded with ease and drew away from his opponents with no apparent effort and won by a safe margin at the finish. Crack o Dawn had a wide margin over the ! tiring Planet, which was exhausted from his earlier efforts. Slight showers which fell this morning and j abated previous to the running of the open- j ! ing dash left a trace of autumn weather in ] the air and somewhat reduced the attend- . ance from that of yesterday. The track was ■ I in good condition for the running of the first four races, but a downfall, which set I j in after the running of the fourth, left the going in a sloppy condition. Favorites were J in the ascendency and well backed choices were returned in the majority of the races. Racing was of a spirited nature throughout the afternoon. OCEAN CHEST BY WIDE MARGIN. The Canadian Juvenile Plate, the secondary feature of the days program, was a dash for Canadian-bred two-year-olds and resulted in the easiest victory of the afternoon when the Thorncliife Stables Ocean Crest was home by a wide margin from Hallucination, with Amber Fly third. Ocean Crest dominated the running throughout, while Hallucination came from the rear after working his way up on the outside. Jockey R. Holloway rode Toe the Mark in the seventh race yesterday, not Stirling. The latter was taken sick in the jot-keys room and the change was not posted on the board. The Elliott Stables good fencer Bencher broke down badly yesterday following the running of the steeplechase and will be on the shelf for some time. Trainer Oeorge Walker of the Brookdale Stable announced this morning that Canadian-bred Reconnaissance would be shipped to i the farm at Rarrie, Ont. The mare is laid up with knee trouble and will be placed in the stud next year and sent to the court of Tippecanoe. Herendesy. the Kings Plater, arrived at Hamilton this morning and will be placed in training by trainer Walker. Commencing tomorrow post positions wilt correspond with the numbers on the program. The condition books for the coming meetings at Windsor and Fort Bris were distributed this morning among the horsemen. H. Gibson has applied for a jockeys license and will ride for Mrs. L. A. Livingston. Lou Marion was an arrival from Kentucky and will remain for the meeting. Harry Morrissey announced this morning that a new stud barn would be erected at Kemplands Farm this summer.
