Pillars GRAND RACE Daughter of Broomstick Wins in Smashing Performance. I Accounts for Walkerville Handicap in Terrific Drive With Jimmie Daw. WINDSOR, Ont, August 31. J. W. Beans Plucky, a chestnut daughter of Broomstick Courage, running in her top form, was re- turned the winner of the Walkerville Handi-: cap, which featured the afternoons card at i Devonshire Park. Her victory came after a terrific drive, in which she got up in the final strides to earn a head decision from J. Spencers Jimmie Daw, with third place going to F. H. Smiths Merrimac. The winner was ridden by J. Chalmers and was a forward factor throughout. The handicap was under claiming conditions and at a mile and a sixteenth, to which ,600 had been added. A field of nine faced the starter and Plucky, despite her victory of a few days ago, was accorded but weak support in the wagering. There was but. little delay at the post and the field was dis- patched to a good start. Jimmie Daw was the one to establish the early running and he was closely pressed by Plucky, with Cotton Blossom racing in third position. The field was closely bunched, with the exception of Croupier, which was far back. Entering the stretch run Jimmie Daw " maintained his advantage, but was under severe punishment, while Chalmers called upon Plucky. The latter responded in u courageous manner and got up right in the - final strides to earn the verdict. Merrimac came with a rush right at the end and captured third place. The time for the race was 1:45. FAT O RITES Ilf ECLIPSE. Interesting racing was served this after-" noon, and the track was again fast. The players failed to locate winners with an f degree of accuracy, and, although several of the winners were accorded stanch sup- port, favorites were in the eclipse. Overhead conditions were all that could be desired and a crowd of large proportions journeyed to the track. Rockery and Dapper Dan furnished a thril ling battle in the two-year-old event, which k was at five and a half furlongs, and the former got up in the final strides to earn a verdict, while Nulli Secundus was third.
