There was a clear, bright, sunny sky overhead today and the crowd at the races was the largest of the week. The feature of the day, the Toledo Blade Handicap, at a distance of one -mile and seventy yards, was won by Milton Smiths Black Toney filly Black Betty. Favored by her light impost Black Betty was saved behind the early pace of Bobby Allen and when called upon easily drew away and for the remainder of the contest was never in danger. The real struggle was for second place, three horses finishing in a bunch, with Lucy Kate getting up in time to catch the tiring Bobby Allen in the last stride. The longest-priced winner of the present meeting came with the running of the second race when Emden slipped through next to the inner rail in the stretch and won going away. He paid 35.20 for the usual ticket. Jockey M. Fator again carried off the riding honors of the day when he piloted home three winners. C. Dishmon also figured prominently with a double victory in the first and sixth races. Jack Dempsey, heavyweight champion, who is appearing at one of the local theaters this week, was a guest of manager Holman today. After seeing the inner workings of the mutuels before the first race he was then taken up into the stewards stand to see the running of the dash. Dempsey was forced to return to the city after the third race to fulfill his theatrical engagement. Jockey T. Buel was an arrival today from Akron. 1 . ! ! ; h , j j , I j 3 a
