THREE STRAIGHT WINS Utah Scores Another Victory at Marlboro Meeting. Return of Pleasant Weather Brings Out Immense Crowd Futen Wins Again. MARLBORO, Md., November 16. Utah, the three-year-old son of Ogden and Phantom that raced for Max Hirsch earlier in the year, won his third victory at Marlboro this afternoon when he took the six and a half furlong dash that was the third offering. As the race was run Utah had to be much the best of his company and the finisli was one of the best of the day when he got up to beat Forest Queen. After the rain of yesterday delightful weather for racing again prevailed and a tremendous crowd was out. The track had dried out nicely and the going Avas good and at its best The winner was unforunate when crowded j back until he was last shortly after the start. Zorro had gone into the lead and held sway for a half when Forest Queen dashed to tho front and opened up a good lead, but in the meantime Utah was racing along gaining with every stride. Entering the stretch tho son of Ogden challenged Forest Queen and after a brief struggle drew clear, though ridden out at the end. Forest Queen outlasted Tricks for second place. It was not much of a trick for Refrain to gallop off with the opening five and a half furlong dash. Mid City by a great rush through the stretch was up in time to be second and Evadner also closed ground to take down the short end of the purse. From a good start Jelley rushed Refrain out until he was well clear when the first turn was reached. Through the backstretch he continued to increase his lead and at the end he was still clear. Mid City was outrun until leaving the backstretch and Stirling was required to go around on the outside to find racing room, but Mid City was equal to the task and he was going great guns at the end. Who Knows, the one that had followed the early pace, quit badly when tho final test came and Evadner outfinished him to be third. OLD AL PIERCE TRIUMPHS. For a second offering there was another five and a half furlongs dash for platers and old Al Pierce was an easy winner from Leoma and Last Girl was the one to finish third. Primitive would not stsrt with his company and was left at the post. Leoma was the one to cut out the pace, while Al Pierce was slightly crowded back right after the start He was climbing on horses at tho first turn, but circled around when the backstretch was reached and, once in front, he never left the result in doubt. Pikesville granduated from the maiden class in the five and a half furlongs of the third race, but he had to be much the best to beat the filly Silks and Satin, while Jamaica Belle was third. Howard, who" had the mount on Pikesville, had him off in front, but he lost a stirrup in the first twenty yards and before he. could right himself the two-year-old had taken command; Pikesville caught her again in the backstretch -and, while Howard did everything but fall off, Pikesville drew out at the end to win with plenty to spare and Silks and Satin beat Jamaica Belle for second place. Thus two-year-olds were first and second in the running. The six and a half furlongs of the fifth race was marked "by some disgraceful rough riding and B. McGinley, who finally landed Salt Peter winner, was the chief offender. Salt Peter had acted so badly at the barrier that the field was sent away with him a couple of lengths back, but he was in motion and it was no handicap. Venal Joy was the one to cut out the running, but Ina Kay caught him before he completed his run through the backstretch the second time. Then it was that McGinley rushed Salt Peter up on the outside and, cutting across in front of the other, knocked Ina Kay out of contention. Star Court had escaped this interference and he finished fast under a weak ride by Stirling, but ho was nosed out for second place by Runnan. while Mr. X. was a length farther back in third place. P L AN T A It E 1 E BEATS KINGLING IT. The mile and a sixteenth of the sixth rac fell to Plantarede, with Kingling IT. racing in second place and Dottas Best beating Horeb for the short end of the purse. Jelley went back considerably in public estimation in this race for his poor riding of Horeb. His mount went in the air slightly at the start and ho rushed him along on the outside for the first half mile in an unnecessary hurry. He found his way to the front, but it took so much out of Horeb that ho tired badly in the stretch. Continued on eighth page. THREE STRAIGHT WINS Continued from first page. Kingling II. was also used up in the early pace, while Woodstock timed his run on Plantarede so well that he came around the tired pacemaker at the head of the stretch and was going away at the end. Kingling II. was a tired second and then Dottas Best got up to beat the badly abused Horeb. At the end of the card Bichard F. Carmans Futen, after making all the pace, stuck it out to beat James Ilobertsons May Girl, while Helen Lucas saved third from All There by a narrow margin. It was the second score of the meeting for Futen and the second winning mount of the day for Woodstock. In this race Bar Coy would not start and was left at the post.
