RAIN AFFECTS RACING AT TOLEDO MEETING TOLEDO, Ohio, August 18. Hickey Brothers Plain Bill accounted for the fourth race, which attracted the best field of the day at Fort Miami Park this afternoon. It was only after a hard drive, however, that he earned the verdict by a narrow margin from the fast coming Marmite. Sentimental outstayed Col. Taylor, the early leader, for the short end of the purse. As the field went to the post for this race a storm broke over the course and it was run in a driving rain. The going was consequently slow for the running of the remaining races, but the air became cool, which was a welcome relief after five days of intense heat. Local showers earlier in the day failed to injure the track for the first three races, but caused a decrease in the attendance, which numbered about 3,000. II. T. Palmer, represented in the sixth race uy Clare Frances, claimed Reg from J. A. Parson for ,300. Deuces "Wild raced in the colors and interests of R. Farey in the second event, who is also the trainer. Three yearlings, the property of North and Rowe, arrived yesterday from Saratoga. They are intended for racing at Tijuana next winter. Their breeding is: Bay colt, by Bezant Rogue; bay filly, by Trovisco La Re-colte, and a chestnut filly by Flittergold Luminous.
