DIXIE PURSE TO FEYLANCE Carries J. K. L. Ross Colors to Victory in Opening Day Feature at Dorval Park. MONTREAL, Que., September 11. The Dixie Purse, which featured the inaugural card at Dorval this afternoon, resulted in a victory for J. K. L. Ross Feylance, ridden by Claver. Second portion of the purse fell to A. V. Thomas Chloris, while Quanah, from the Seagram Stable, was third. The race, which was at three-quarters, was the fastest run during the autumn meetings in this section, Feylance going the distance in 1:11. The race was marked by considerable rough riding, in which Feylance and Sangrado were the chief sufferers and the latter was probably eliminated from serious contention at the finish when he was bumped and forced to take up at the far turn. The start was a good one and Chloris immediately went to the front, with Feylance racing on the inside and Sangrado on the outside. Claver was in close quarters and was trying to ease back through the first eighth. Dolly Varden moved up fast on the outside rounding the bend and Sangrado was bumped entering the stretch. In a hard drive through the final eighth Feylance disposed of Chloris and was drawing clear at the end. Quanah came wide at the stretch turn and was ridden out to withstand the rush of Sangrado, which came again at the end. A. Swinke claimed Halu from A. C. Bost-wick in the final race at Blue Bonnets on Saturday. Swinke was represented in the race by Dark Hill. Mortimer H. Mahoney arrived from Baltimore this morning and resumed the management of the mutuel department. Stewart M. N. Macfarlan arrived from Detroit this morning and completed the official family. At the recent meeting of the Canadian Racing Associations the followed rule was passed : No change of ownership of a horse racing that day will be valid unless passed upon by the stewards. Trainer D. Holmes shipped the J. W. Healey and A. Bostwick horses to Havre de Grace, where they will be rested up until racing is resumed at that point.
