Bunting "Wins Yalnable Maryland Handicap B and Calamity Jane Triumphs m the Arundel. LAUREL, Md., October 14. T.:e H. V Whitney stable played a prominent p-trt ai e: Laurel Park this afternoon when Bunting g added to his list of victories the Maryland o of Handicap, at a mile and a quarter, and Cn- n lamity Jane captured the Arundel Handicap, n three-quarters of a mile. Buntings sue- c cess was scored from the Greentree Stables p Nedna, which in turn had a wide margin b over E. F. Cooneys Athelstan, which beat out S. Louis Rebuke by a head for the short t end of the stakes, while R. T. Wilsons Tan- a a gerine, the only other starter, was some " lengths back. The race resulted in a hollow victory for the son of Pennant Frillery, for when T Kummer called upon him to pass Rebuke a rounding the far turn, he did so with the utmost ease and was then taken under re- straint, and at the end easily held Nedna safe. The latter, which raced coupled with " Bunting, was in third position for the great- C est part of the race and saved ground j throughout. Athelstan, which was credited with some -good races about New York, was beaten oft for second place and just managed to take third place from the tiring Rebuke. The Maryland Handicap had an added value of 0,000 and netted the H. P. Whit- . neff coffers the sum of ?8,325, while Nedna , earned ,000. CHEVY CHASE TO COURTEOUS. i The Chevy Chase Steeplechase, under han- dicap conditions, to which a purse of ,000 was added, was one of the feature attrac- tions this afternoon, and resulted in a sweeping victory for the C. K. Harrison Stable, ; which supplied the first and second horses in Courteous and Sea Tale, while Mrs. F. A. Clarks Minata was third. The winner dom- , inated the running from the start and at the end had something left. Sea Tale was well up all the way and raced on the outside throughout. "Veitch, who rode Sea Tale, had his mount under restraint at all stages and when Minata stumbled slightly at the final jump there was no cause for him to urge her, for Courteous was holding his own in gaL lant fashion. The race was marked, by one fall when Natalie unseated her rider, but she was not a strong factor at the timev There was a tinge of autumn in the air ats Laurel Park this afternoon and overcast skies had but little effect in holding down the at-1 tendance, which surpassed that of any day of the meeting. The program arranged for today was a thoroughly good one and was productive of spirited racing. The backers of favorites were in the eclipse during the afternoon and several long-priced winners were victorious. In the running of the Arundel, Calamity Jane was overlooked and, showing a return to her good form, took a representative band of crack racers into camp by the shortest of margins when she lasted to beat G. W. Lofts On Watch by a head, while L. T. Bauers Tippity Witchet was third. The race marked the first appearance of W. S. Kilmers cham-e pion Exterminator in these parts this fall and "Slim" was accorded an ovation in the parade to the post. Exterminator failed to finish in the charmed circle, but came with a mighty rush at the end. XEW HAMPSHIRE A FAILURE. New Hampshire, racing in the colors of J. K. L. Ross, failed to make good for his new owner and third was the best he could do behind the Quincy Stables Carol and W. L. Smarts Valador. New Hampshire was purchased by Commander Ross last night, but saddled by Max Hirsch in his start today, The terms of the sale were not given out. Lew Williams has taken over the horses of S. Szelatowski Delhi Maid and Hobey Baker and will train them in future, Silas Veitch had his recent purchase, Re- sarf, castrated and sent him and the jumper Continued on eleventh page.
