1 TREV1S0 SCORES EASILY Exciting Sport at Windsor Races Despite Continued Downpour Attendance Reduced. LONDON, England, November 2. So far as the weather is concerned the record of Windsor races has long been an unfortunate one. Even so, there has seldom been a more .utterly wretched experience than that of yesterday, when rain neAer ceased until just at the close of the proceedings. Naturally, the outlook had a marked effect on the attendance, which was one of the smallest seen anywhere for a long time past. Runners were plentiful throughout and finishes in one or two instances quite thrilling, but as was only to be expected in such holding going, some Avcll-backed competitors met with defeat. Notably was this so in connection with the two Chattis Hill fa-orites in their respectiAe races. Corcyrian, in spite of his big weight in the principal event, the Clarence Three-Ycar-Old Handicap, was saddled in preference to the London Cup failure, Erehwemos, and but for the demand for Treviso, Sir George Murrays colt would liaAe started at a considerably shorter price than 3 to RACE A OXE-HOltSE AFFAIR. Several others, including Lomount, Silver Thistle, Silvanus and Flavius which represented the Whatcomb Stable, usually so dangerous here, were also well befriended, but the race resolved itself into a one-horse affair from the outset, Treviso going to the front straight away and Avinning by an easy three-quarters of a length from the Manton outsider, GaAottc. Piccadilly, which had a Aictory to her credit on the course, finished third, on her merits, Avell in front of the others. The favorite never appeared able to take a place among the leaders. Treviso must be a decidedly improAed animal, as a month ago he only scrambled home by a neck from Our Ben a selling race at Nottingham. Subsequently he carried off a mile handicap at Doncaster, and now has followed this more important triumph. The other Chattis Hill candidate, Atirovaf, made a much better showing, as it was only Continued on eighth page. . r I : 1 f t 2 . - . - t e e t - - r d 1. .. . t e y n it ?, c g y y in n y r, f, TREVISO SCORES EASILY Continued Troni first page. bv a head that she suffered defeat in the Frogmore Handicap. Nectarinia, Overseer, and Boscombc were all backed to beat her, and it was the last-named, a gray son of Roi Ilercde and Sospcl, which accomplished her downfall. Atirovaf was only caught on the post and doubtless the weight told against her in the end. Half a score of moderate juveniles turned out for the Mill Maiden Selling Plate, tha two chosen for chief support being Amphora gelding and Miss White, but the spoils were earned easily by Leeds United from Popes stable at Royston. The youngster led from start to finish, and was ridden by tha north-country jockey F. Jones, whose younger brother, R. A., steered both Treviso and Boscombe to victory. Previously to this, however, young Jones experienced a set-back, as, after finishing first on Nous Yerrons in the Rays Selling l Handicap, his mount was disqualified for crossing. The interference took place, not with the second, but the third. Glen Eagle, whose rider lodged the complaint. Prolific took Nous Yerrons place as the winner, but the position of second was not of great valuo to Glen Eagles owner, the sole surplus amounting to only 75. The largest field and the best finish of the day were associated with the Black Nest Welter Handicap. Precious and Almond Wine were the two principal fancies for this and a hundred yards from home they appeared to have the issue between them. Little Smirke, however, swooped down on them on the Irish colt Time, and snatched what may have been a rather lucky triumph.
