CARMANDALES SPEED Too Much for Opponents in the Rosedale Handicap. M. Fator Rides Four Winners, Three Consecutively Double for Owner Alexandra. TORONTO, Ont, September 13. Shouldering the heavy impost of 124 pounds Carman-dale captured the Rosedale Handicap, which featured the card at Thorncliffe Park this afternoon. The son of Meridian displayed a high order of speed, shaking off his opponents after going the first eighth and never leaving the result in doubt for the remainder of the race. At the end Carmandale led Wraith by a comfortabel margin, with Madeline Lillian an easy third. The Canadian bred Chief Sponsor, acting well at the barrier, began with the winner, but found the pace too hot and dropped out of contention after going the first quarter, which was timed in 22 over a drying oui track. Carmandale covered the five and a half furlongs in 1:06, or within a fifth of a second of the track record. Rain threatened about race time and tho initial dash was run in a heavy shower. The downpour was of short duration, however, and the largest crowd of the week witnessed the sport, over 6,000 persons being on hand. The Alexandra stable made it a double when Yorkist, closing with a rush through the stretch, scored an impressive victory in the concluding dash. The riding of jockey M. Fator was an outstanding feature. He piloted four winners, the first three in succession June Fly, Theo and Hindoostan and also had the leg up on Yorkist. June Fly accounted for the curtain raiser, saving much ground in the stretch and scoring a rather lucky victory. Dellahm was best, but was permitted to run all over the track by jockey Damourelle and finishing on the extreme outside was beaten only a half length. Theo came from behind Delhimar in the stretch to win the second race, but at the end she was hard pressed to outstay Thorny Way. ANOTHER FOR FLIBBERTYGIIiBET. The best finish of the afternoon came with the running of the fifth, in which the three placed horses finished, in almost perfect alignment. Flibbertygibbet, working his way up on the inside through the last eighth, was awarded the decision over the pacemaker, Tarascon, with Ravenswood third. Dantzic captured the remaining race. For rough riding while astride Merrimac here yesterday jockey M. Sonwartz wa set down for three days by the stewards. J. N. McFadden will ship his string from here to Chicago for the Hawthorne Park meeting. B. B. Rice will ship to Maryland. E. S. Day reports that his filly Matches Mary died at AVindsor. For using profane language while weighing out after a race today jockey Damourelle was fined 5 by the stewards. L. T. Whitehill, represented in the third race by Little Less, claimed Quick Run. from M. Loy for ,800. T. E. Crist, owner of Verity, filed a protest with the stewards, claiming that Bees Wing, the winner, and Fair Virginia, which finished second, failed to carry their proper weight in the sixth race yesterday. The protest was sustained and as a result Verity was awarded the winners portion of the purse, Ncnette second money and Peggy C. third money. Joseph A. Murphy announced today that he would leave here Saturday night for Chicago, to take active charge of the meeting opening at Hawthorne Park September 30. Johnson Southard left here Tuesday night to serve as track superintendent until the close of the meeting. John Carey will join tho staff Monday to take charge of the stabling room. Judge Murphy has the assurance of a threat many owners of high-class horses that they are so keenly interested in the revival of racing in Chicago that they will send what horses are needed to insure the success of the meeting. It is probable on his arrival at Chicago Sunday he will commence to notify owners what he needs and request that most of the prominent stables send sj few horses so that their colors may be identified with the movement.
