BABY MINE IN HER OWN WAY WINDSOR, Ont, July 26. Examination of the filly Baby Mine after her winning race on Saturday and the subsequent development of her physical disability has made it clear to the officials that her disappointing race at the Windsor Jockey Club track was due to her habit of hitting herself when at high speed. She was especially plated with a view to correcting this, but it was not effective. On Saturday she ran in the same plates, but wore a protecting boot, and in spite of that struck herself so badly that the inside of the hock was badly swollen and pounded until the blood came.
