ADVERSE CONDITIONS 11 Cold Weather and Muddy Track at Dade Park. 1 Manoevre Beats Green Gold in Outstanding Contest of Afternoon Ruby Takes Race. t HENDERSON, Ky., November IS. Clear s but cold weather was the rule here this aft- -5 ernoon, but the track was deep and suited c only to the most pronounced mud performers. J Small fields were in evidence in most of the 1 dashes and the spectacular feature of for- mer days, when close finishes marked the racing, was absent. The respective winners g had comparatively an easy time of it. j The downfall of several pronounced ,: choices proved costly to a majority of the , form followers. Considering the bad going and the ordinary starters the volume of wa- c gering was surprisingly large. 1 The best race carded was the fourth, at three-quarters, in which some fairly high-priced platers met. It resulted in a victory j for Manoevre from Green Gold, with Charles Henry in third place. The going benefited .-, Manoevre and he wore down Green Gold in j the last sixteenth. In the Phil Musgravc Memorial Purse, j named for the late well-known jockey, who , was killed in 1919 by a fall, Ruby won in , runaway fashion from Jacobina and Riche- , lieu. The principal supposedly contenders, , Smart Guy and Escarpolette, were badly beaten. Phil Musgrave was a product of these parts, having been born and raised at Mount Vernon, Ind., adjacent to here and was well known. His widow is at present employed in the secretarys cilice of the local lodge of Elks. Ormont Avas faAored in the initial dash and he had no diniculty in making good, Avinning under restraint from Winter Blossom and Albert L. The success of Ormont was in a great measure due to the Aigorous riding of E. Petzoldt, Avho made quite a reputation at the recent HaAvthorne meeting in Chicago. After Nowata had set the pace for a half mile and then tired, Petzoldt sent Ormont into the lead and kept him there to the end, despite the persistent efforts of Water Blossom to dislodge him. 3IACBET1I A FAILT711E. Macbeth Avas a prohibitiA-e choice in the. k second race, but the best he could do Avas to land in third place. Stump Jr. Avinning easily from Fernandos. Macbeths defeat" AAas primarily due to too much early strenuous racing trying to lass Marjorie Wood, the pacemaker, for a L brief part of the contest. After Marjorie ! Wood Avas done for the faAorite had little left himself and fell an easy .Aictim to his 5 fresher opponents Stump Jr. and Fernandos. Another faAorite Avent doAvn to defeat in 1 the folloAving race Avhen Royal Dick was 3 badly beaten by Serbian and Mabel Rule. The latter might have been the Aictress but t for going badly lame in the last sixteenth. . Black Reck Avas another to finish in bad 1 condition after the race. Mormon Elder was regarded as the best in 1 the mile and a quarter dash, but he failed to get a portion of the purse. Lord Wrack, :, under a good ride, Avinning from Honolulu 1 Boy, Avith American Soldier third. Twelve started in the final race, a mile e dash, and Magician Avon easily from Amanda, , with Miss Prosperity one of the outsiders, third. Buckboard might haAe been a strong factor, but for a slow beginning. Ormont Avas claimed out of the first race e for 51.300, by J. B. Campbell. J. Umensetter will ship back to LouisAille Ruby and Golden Billows to Avinter there. Considering the ordinary card and the bad d track conditions a fairly big attendance was s on hand to Aiew the racing. The New Orleans special Avhich leaAes here e next Sunday Avill haAe consignments of f horses from E. R. Bradley, G. Drumheller, r, W. Perkins, J. T. Looney, Cain and Sanford. 1. J. B. McKee, R. B.
