Good old Exterminator accomplished something at the Woodbine this afternoon that no horse ever , accomplished before at the Ontario Jockey Clubs course when he -won the Toronto Autumn Cup Handicap for the third successive time. Other horses have won this famous race twice, but it remained for Exterminator to go them one better. In 1920, with 132 pounds up, Exterminator beat My Dear by a head and in the following year with 137 pounds in the saddle he again beat the same mare by a head. This afternoon Exterminator carried 132 pounds and won going away from Guy and Bit of White in exactly the same time he ran the race in last year, 2:0pVfc. Eleanor S. and Brilliant Jester were withdrawn and Mayor House added.

When called on the latter responded with his usual sterling gameness and, passing the leaders In the final eighth, won going away by a half length.

Boniface was fourth, another length away. The winners portion of the stake was 2,S00. A great crowd turned out and enjoyed a great days racing. The Ontario Jockey Club, whose policy has always been to attract the best in racing and to encourage the breeding of the thoroughbred, did its share in the way of attracting the best material available by adding the handsome sum of 7,000 to the seven races. Conditions were ideal for outdoor sport and keen contests were in order. Apart from the cup race additional attractions were the Maple Leaf Stakes, with ?3,000 added, for Canadian-bred three-year-old fillies, and the Woodbine Autumn Steeplechase. ,000 added, over the two-mile course.
