TORELORE WINS HANDICAP Sir Hedworth Meuxs Five-Year-Old Takes Feature Event at Manchester in Heavy Fog. SPECIAL CABLEGRAM. LONDON, England, November 27. Racing was barely possible at Manchester Saturday but the program was run off in extremely unpleasant weather. A heavy fog overhung the course and the visibility was so low that few in the stands could distinguish colors during the races. The going was good, however, and a big crowd turned out. The feature event was the Manchester November Handicap, which always attracts a good-sized field of considerable quality. This race resulted in an easy victory for Sir Hedworth Meuxs five-year-old Torelore, son of Beppo and Tortor. C. R. Barons Arravale was second and C. F. Kenyons Orpi beat Irish Belfry for third place. Fourteen started in the handicap. The odds quoted against Torelore were G to 1, while Arravale was at 100 to 8 and Orpi at 25 to 1. Lord Derbys Crevasse was the favorite. Torelore is included in the Newmarket December sales and "his easy victory Saturday will probably have the effect of enhancing his value for that vendue. Atty Persse, who saddled Torelore, made it a double by winning the Farewell Handicap with Royal Alarm, which was ridden to victory by Carslake under 127 pounds. Lord Derby scored a double when his juveniles Torlonia and Sierra Leone won their respective races.
