NEW HAMPSHIRE WINNER t - Finds Little Trouble Accounting for Aspirant Handicap. Sea Master Easily Triumphs in Steeplechase Weather Conditions Improye but Track Is Still Heavy. LAUREL, Md., October 11. Max Hirschs New Hampshire had but little difficulty in accounting for the Aspirant Handicap, one of the dual features at Laurel Park this afternoon, from the Quincy Stables Caveat Emptor, while Harry Payne Whitneys Woodland was third. The race Avas at three-quarters, for two-year-olds, and a field of seven faced the starter. There was no delay at the post and New Hampshire began with the leaders and set a fast pace. Woodland was the one to race in closest pursuit, while Caveat Emptor was in third position. There was no change in the leaders until well straightened out in j the stretch, where New Hampshire shook off Woodland under slight urging and readily drew away. Caveat Emptor closed with a rush on the outside and passed Woodland, but did not menace the winner. New Hampshire was the popular choice in the wagering. There was a decided change in the weather conditions at Laurel Park this afternoon, but the track, following the drenching received yesterday, although drying out on top, was heavy and required the best efforts of pronounced mudders. The air was tinged by a sharp breeze that swept the course and topcoats were in demand. Well supported horses were in the ascendancy and despite the wide margin of the majority of the winners racing was of a Avholcsome order throughout the day. THRILLS IX STEEPLECHASE. The Prospect Steeplechase, for three-year-olds, was productive of several thrills and falls. Sea Master, racing for Ral Parr, was returned an easy winner from R. B. Strass-burgers Theodosius, while the Malvern Hill Farm Stables Chuckle was third. Sea Master was ridden by Kleeger and proved much the best of his opponents on the flat and over the obstacles. Of the seven that faced the starter three failed to finish the course Vicaire, Lollipop and The Sphinx. Sea Master assumed the lead after the J. E. Davis starter, The Sphinx, unseated his rider and won by the widest margin of the afternoon. Theodosius was a very tired horse at the end, but had an equally wide margin over Chuckle, which was probably as tired. Should no more rain fall the track will be in a fast condition in a few days. Cassidy is a live wire and his efforts have been greatly appreciated by horsemen for his efforts in their behalf. William P. OMeara, general manager of the J. K. L. Ross breeding establishment at Vercheres, near Montreal, was a visitor this afternoon. Starter Harry Morrissey returned from New York this morning and will start for his home at Lexington tomorrow. H. G. Bedwell arrived from Kenilworth Park, Windsor, and has been busy for the last few days looking over the mares and yearlings at the Yarrow Brae Stock Farm near Laurel. J. B.
