FAIR PHANTOM AGAIN Montfort Jones Speedy Filly Wins Third Straight Victory. Easily Triumphs Over Prudery and Reparation in Principal Race at Bowie. BOWIE, Md., November 29. Kentucky gave both New York and Maryland a sound beating at Bowie this afternoon when Montfort Jones granddaughter of Light Brigade and Bellita, Fair Phantom, scored an impressive victory in the mile and seventy yards of the Consolation Purse. It was the ihird and easiest triumph for this fleet-footed hly at the meeting. Back of her came Harry Payne Whitneys Prudery and third fell to another New York horse when Joseph E. Davis two-time winner. Reparation, was third. Maryland was fourth, when Spaulding Lowe Jenkins Polly Ann beat the two-year-old Avalanche, the only other starter. It was a delightful day for the sport. The weather was bright and sunshiny all after-i con and the track at its best. These conditions attracted an unusually large crowd, including some visitors from New York, who will remain over for the Thanksgiving Day f-noi t. In the Consolation Purse Garner had Fair Phantom off well in her stride, and he per-nitted her to race clear of the others, where he took her under restraint and there was no irage of the running that she was really extended. In the stretch she was still well clear and at the end was still two and a half lengths in advance of the others. Prudery raced well, she and Reparation always showing the way to the other two starters. At the end the Whitney filly out-finished Reparation to take second place by half a length, and the Davis three-year-old was four lengths before Polly Ann. ROMPING HOME REPEATS. It was a good band of juveniles that went to the post for the three-quarters of the Marlboro Purse, and the winner turned up in the Greentree Stables Romping Home, making it his second score at the meeting. At the end the finish was a particularly close one, when he got up by only a head from Richard T. Wilsons Forest Lore and James B. Smiths Caladium was a close third. As in his previous winning race Romping Home forced all the pace and after racing Ruddy into defeat disposed of August Belmonts Felside before the eighth post in the stretch was reached. Cum Sah was the winner of the sixth race, at a mile and seyenty yards, in one of the best finishes of the day. At the end he was doing his best to show the way to Care Free by a narrow margin, and Gallivant, off after being badly messed about, finished with a rush to take third place from Utah. Cum Sah and Hello Pardner raced closely lapped for most of the way and at the head of the stretch Hello Pardner drew away slightly. But inside of the last eighth Cum Sah came again under McTaggarts vigorous riding and as he drew alongside Hello Pardner tired badly, dropped back into close quarters and was shuffled back just as Cum Sah took command. Care Free came with a mighty rush on the outside and it was a battle to the last stride, Cum Sah just lasting to win. Gallivant wns in no end of trouble all through the race and when he found clear sailing closed up ground in a fashion to suggest that he might have won with better racing luck. KING CHARMING SUCCESSFUL. King Charming proved the best of the two-year-old maidens that came together In the opening three-quarters dash. Well ridden by Keogh, he was never far from the leader and was under restraint when Quarrel rushed up to take command. In the stretch he had plenty left to withstand the rush of Sunday Best and Quarrel lasted to save third place. Picnic, the son of Pebbles and May Queen that was bred and raced by James Butler, the New York sportsman, was winner of the six and a half furlong dash for selling platers, the second offering of the day. Picnic now carries the silks of H. C. Proctor. Picnic, Dark Horse and Cahalan were the ones to set most of the pace and Jock Scot was not far away, while the others were more or less strung out, with Sundial II. bringing up the rear. Wraith was in the middle of the band in the early stages and he had rather a rough time of it. In the stretch Picnic drew out from the others and at the end was a length and a half clear FAIR PHANTOM AGAIN Continued from first page. and Cahalan easily saved second place. "Wraith had to work his way up in tha stretch and was cut off an eighth from home. But for this interference he would have been closer up. There was a good finish In the Boulevard Claiming Handicap at a mile and and eighth that was the fourth offering. This fell to the locally owned Despair, while Tufter just saved second place from Overtake, with All Over a close fourth. Despair set the paca from the rise of the barrier and never had to surrender his command. Slippery Elm was rushed up on the outside in the early running, but tired from chasing the pacemaker, while All Over was reced exceedingly wide on the turns and Overtake met with a deal of interference and through the stretch was next to the inner rail and in close quarters. Duncecap, as usual, was away slowly and Bell chose a course along the outside. She was closing up in good fashion at the head of the stretch, where she ran out badly. Then Bell busied himself in an effort to keep her in, when it was possible she would have earned some part of the purse had she been permitted to continue her erratic course. L. A. Cassidy, resident manager of Laurel, departed for New York this evening after winding up the affairs of the Maryland State Fair Association. F. F. Hynes was a visitor from Havana en route to his home at Toronto. Hynes will campaign his horses at Oriental Park for the first time this year.
