GRAY GABLES THE VICTOR Captures Lord Shaughnessy Cup, Main Attraction at Dorval Park, With Ease. MONTREAL, Que., September 1C The7 Lord Shaughnessy Cup, which was the carded attraction this afternoon at Dorval Park, resulted in victory for J. A. Sheas Gray Gables in an easy manner from Martin A. Noonari, while the latter had but a slight advantage over Cote dOr. The race was under handicap conditions, at a mile and an eighth, and brought out a field of eight, there being one withdrawal from the overnight entries. There was but little delay at the barrier before the field was dispatched in good alignment Duke John was the one to establish the early pace and was closely followed by Mayor House, with Cote dOr racing in third place and the remainder of the starters strung out, with Sailor bringing up the rear. Doyle, who rode the winner, made his move rounding the far turn and Gray Gables, responding with gameness, closed the gap which separated him from the leaders. Swinging into the stretch the Swinke colors were carried to the front by Cote dOr, while the winner was racing weil in the middle of the track. Gray Gables assumed the lead when well inside the eighth past and drew away in easy fashion from Martin A. Noonan. The latter was ridden out to stall off Cote dOr, which hung on with rare courage. Racing conditions at Dorval Park this afternoon were a pronounced improvement over those which prevailed for the greatest part of the week. The track had dried out rapidly, but was still on the slow side. The card which was down for decision this afternoon was a well-balanced one and served to bring out fields of better class than those which faced the barrier in the past few days. The warm weather acted as a magnet to draw out the largest crowd which has passed the turnstiles at this plant, and every inch of available space was occupied. Racing on the whole was of a formful order and several exciting finishes were witnessed. The secondary feature of the afternoon was the Jacques Cartier Handicap, which -was a dash of a mile for Canadian-breds. The winner came from an unexpected quarter when Mallowmot retained the advantage which he gained rounding the first turn. Blarney Boy took second place, while Azrael was third. Mallowmot was ridden by F. Sharpe and dominated the running for the entire race. Blarney Boy was slow to get in his stride and was forced to work his way up on the outside, but at the end was gain- , ing on the winner. Azrael moved up in a threatening manner, but made a wide turn rounding the stretch, which spoiled his chances. The race was a costly one for A. V. Thomas, for his good Canadian-bred Yowell pulled up lame and will probably be on the shelf for some time. BARGES RIDING THE FEATURE. Jockey Eddie Barnes riding was a distinctive feature of the afternoons sport. He accounted for the first three races of the day, winning with Titania, Meuse arid Ethel-Clayton. The latter proved much the best of a band of juveniles that faced the starter in the running of the Valor Handicap, at five and a half furlongs. She sprinted into a long lead and Was under restraint at. the end, winning by the widest margin of the afternoon. Ferrum was ordered scratched from the first race by the stewards.
