CLOSE FINISHES AT KEMPTON MONTREAL, Que., August 2. Close and thrilling finishes characterized the days racing at Kempton Park today. J. H. Sheas Glenn just lasted to win the three-quarters handicap, the principal contest, in which he outran his opponents to the first turn and, saving ground there, drew into the lead, but had to be ridden, out in the final stages when Assume, which had raced in close pursuit from the start, closed fast and gamely. Only a neck separated the two at the finish. Lee Enfield went wide into the final turn and this cost him the miner portion of the purse, American Eaglo outlasting him. There was another head finish in the sec- ond dash when Bread Line outgamed Sea Board in a duel which lasted the length of the stretch. Jockeys Atkinson, Eames and Ryan, who were suspended during the early stages of the meeting for rough riding, were reinstated today and will be allowed to accept mounts the opening day at Delorimier, as will N. Collins, who was set down for two days for failure to report at the jockeys room. Jockey R. Ball, who was granted a license A yesterday, had his first mount today.
