Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Nov. 29, 1902 Racing at New Orleans, Benning and Ingle-side. There was nothing of much interest at Ingleside and the racing was ordinary. Durnell and Herz added two more purses to their collection when McChesney took the third and The Lady won the fifth race at New Orleans. Buchanan rode both winners. At Benning the big race of the day was the Ma-rimum Stakes. Six horses went to the post and Andy Williams was the post-time favorite, but Douro, running in the colors of J. W. Colt, under a vigorous ride by Gannon, galloped home an easy winner. Cambrian, H. M. Tichnors good son of Hindoo Cambria, added the Magnolia Stakes of ,000 to his winning list at New Orleans. Jockey Fuller, who had the mount, saved him behind the leaders in the early running and. when the final drive came, he had enough speed in reserve to win going away. Lady Sterling dam of both Sir Barton and Sir Martin was the favorite in the fifth at New Orleans, but the best she could do was to finish third. She was pocketed all through the early running, only managing to free herself at the head of the stretch, and her final rush was of no avail.
