Auntie Mays form reversal in todays feature race was the outstanding incident in connection with the racing at Dade Park.

In todays race she began slowly, and the others left her far back for the first quarter, but she moved around the ethers with great determination thereafter, and in the last seventy yards wrested the lead from Sir Thomas Kean, Tuscola landing in third place. Her form reversal was the more glaring from the fact that she ran the three-quarters in 1 :12 over the difficult track. The ladies took advantage of the managements invitation to witness the racing without cost and thronged the plant. The betting also showed marked improvement, it being the largest volume handled during the meeting. Bigger fields competed Tor the purses and the racing was interesting, but devoid of any sensational incidents. Favorites were successful in many instances and all the winners had liberal support.

Brown and Tender Seth, after leading the entire race. Royal Dick, which was a distinct failure in his last race, was given a capable ride today and won from Ogarite, with. Rekab third. Toe the Mark had the call in the fifth race, but the finish found him soundly beaten in third place, the winner turning up in Miss Prosperity. Golden Floss was the disappointment in the sixth race.

Smart Guy having previously passed into the lead to ultimately win with something in reserve. The Worthington colors made it a double for the afternoon when John Hoshor duplicated Auntie Mays success in the closing dash and won in runaway style from Plus Ulti-a, with Blossom House landing in third place.
