IMPROVEMENT AT DORVAL Pleasant Weather Conditions Bring Out Larger Attendance Spirited Racing. MONTREAL, Que., September 13. There was a decided change in overhead conditions this afternoon and as a result a crowd of much better proportions journeyed to Dorval Park course. The track was heavy and hold ing and required the superior mud runners to successfully race over it. Should no more rain fall the track will be fast. A finish in which the winner was undecided until the official placing was displayed came with the decision of the fifth i-ace, which was at a mile and a sixteenth, m which The Portuguese got up in the final strides to earn a nose victory from Smart Money, while John Arbor was a good third. The winner was an outsider in financia calculations and netted a return of 3 05 for the usual investment. The diminutive apprentice W. Martin accounted for two of the afternoons races, scoring with Bright Morning and Beverly Belle, the latter taking a well-matched band of sprinters into camp. Anticipate took second place, while Roisterer was third. The winner came from the rear and finished courageously when Camouflage was taken wide to secure the best of the going and unexpectedly tired under the weight. Bright Morning defeated a band of Canadian-breds by a safe margin, while Waac took second place from Gallou-Berry. Jockey Clarence Turner left for New York to report to trainer Tom Welsh. Turner will ride one of the J. E. Widener candidates in the Futurity. Races over a longer distance of ground were the fetaure of todays program. There was no carded attraction down for decision, but spirited racing on the whole resulted. What brought out the best field of the afternoon and the best finish was the contest at a mile and a sixteenth, in which a field of five faced the starter. The race resulted in a triumph for W. J. Kramers Fornovo in a grueling finish with Austral, while King Trojan finished third. i FORNOVO IX HARD DRIVE. Fornovo was kept under restraint by Cla-ver until rounding the far turn, where he 1 moved after the pacemaker, King Trojan, passed him easily and gamely held sway to the end. Austral, which was closer up than usual, made his bid when well settled in the stretch, and was wearing down the tiring Fornovo, which had a half length advantage at the end. Austral was the popular choice ! in the wagering, while Fornovo was accorded considerable support, netting a return I of 0.10 for the usual investment. The J. K. L. Ross stable shipped to Woodbine Park this evening, while the Brookdale Stable left yesterday.
