continues here and on this occasion Wynnewood was the of ¬ fender when he failed in the mile and sev ¬ enty yards purse featuring a somewhat or ¬ dinary racing offering He was narrowly beaten by Fantoche on which Owens made no mistake this afternoon and rode in vig ¬ orous style Unlike in his former races Fan ¬ toche was kept close up during the early rac ¬ ing and when called on responded in his usual honest style and steadily overhauled Wynnewood in the last eighth There were six starters in the race with Wynnewood backed confidently at a prohibitive price He raced into a good lead at the outset but could not shake off Fantoche and Cap Rock Eacli made a menacing challenge in the last quarter He held Cap Rock safe enough but could not cope with Fantoche FantocheAnother Another big delegation of firsttime vis ¬ itors was at the course this afternoon to enjoy the racing This was again under the most favorable weather conditions conditionsFavorite Favorite backers were again badly trounced for with the exception of Kennmare in the opener the next four choices were overthrown handily Valor came to their rescue in the sixth race He won in run ¬ away style after indulging Dantzic and Quesada with the lead for a half mile The runnersup at the finish Fannie Bean and Normal staged a spectacular battle for sec ¬ ond place with Fannie Bean getting the verdict in the last stride strideKennmare Kennmare which has been a disappoint ¬ ment several times and missed victories by a narrow margin finally made good when she beat eleven other maidens home that competed with her Her margin of victory was by a scant half length and driving hard to outstay Rupee with All American press ¬ ing the pair closely and racing as if best He was far back in the early running and closed a big gap gapEARLY EARLY LEAD HELPS HELPSLouis Louis Lichtenheim which scored in run ¬ away style in a former race again earned brackets by his ability to take a long lead at the outset He was tiring fast at the end but managed to outstay Ina Kay and Tom Cassidy CassidyThe The third race found Feodor the winner primarily as a result of Pools superiority as a rider over Roehm The latter rode Adventure and should have won but had his mount all over the track and she suc ¬ cumbed by a narrow margin Black Hackle at long odds landed in third place The start was ragged and some of the probable contenders were completely eliminated then and there thereOne One of the closest finishes of the meeting developed with the running of the fourth race in which Elmer K and Royal Charlie were the central figures Elmer K won but only by a nose and the decision would have been reversed in another stride for Royal Charlie was fast overhauling the tir ¬ ing Elmer K Mavourneen landed in third place Copyright one of the starters did a circus stunt immediately following the start when Bell had to pull him up to keep from being bucked off The improvement shown by Elmer K caused the stewards to
