OHara never left the result in serious doubt during the running of the fifth race, which attracted the best field of the seven contests at Thorncliffe Park this afternoon. At the end the winner led by a wide margin from Ten Can, which easily held Citizen safe for third place. A heavy rain iast night drenched the track and showers throughout the day were responsible for the slim attendance, which was practically confined to the regulars. As a result of the change in track conditions upsets were in order and it remained for the concluding race to produce the only real excitement of the day. In this contest Dissolute showed the way until the last sixteenth, when Old Faithful, closing with rare courage, got up to win in the final stride. Incidentally it marked the initial appearance of Old Faithful in the colors of his new owner, Suart Polk. HindOostan came from behind to score an easy victory in the third, while Troubler drew into an easy lead after reaching the half-mile post in the opener and won in a canter. The locally owned Quick Run showed more speed than her opponents at all stages of the fifth race and had little trouble earning brackets. For rough riding in the seventh race jockey J. Wallace was set down for three days by the stewards. Joseph Cattrfnch, who is interested in the Quebec Breeders Association at Montreal, was a visitor today. W. C.
