ERIES EXCELLENT OPENING Slippery Silver Defeats Qnincy Ward Miss Grcstwood Left at the Post. ERIE. Pa.. August 21. Coming fast and gamely through the stretch, G. W. Fritzs Slippery Silver won in the best field of the opening days racing at Exposition Park this afternoon, when she outgamed Quincy Ward to win the third race. Miss Crestwood, from which much was expected, wheeled when at the start and was left. H. T. Palmer, represented in this race by Quincy Ward, claimed Goldie S. from J. A. Parson for ? 1,100. Wealthy Ann barely lasted to win the first race by the smallest possible margin. Another exciting finish came wih the running of the fifth race in which Big Son just got uj in the closing strides to beat Pokey Jane and; Obstinate. The remaining winners scored with considerable to spare. The conditions were most favorable and the attendance was fair for a Monday. Jockey H. S. Jones, one of the premier riders at the Toledo meeting, was an arrival today. He is now under contract to E. J. "Boc" Lovell, who has taken over the stable of H. T. Palmer to train in future. Jockey J. Capazzi was severely kicked on the left leg by Wealthy Ann while at the pest for the first race. He was forced to cancel his remaining engagements. Ed Rice shipped the good plater Magician to Windsor from Toledo. The remainder of his string was shipped to this meeting. Due to shortage of cars many of the stables were delayed in shipment from Toledo, which was a cause for much scratching from todays fields. The stables of G. M. Ridge and O. J. Gran came in today from Baltimore, Md. Sam McXeal shipped his string to Windsor from Toledo. J. Huttons White Sox broke down badly during the running of the fifth race.
