HARD FOUGHT OUT FINISHES Big Crowd Thrilled by Spirited Contests — Mallowmot Again Changes Owners. COLUMBUS. Ohio. April 26.— Close and exciting finishes marked the days racing and the largest crowd of the week was present to witness it. The fourth and fifth races were vested with the most interest, both being over a considerable distance. C. Houbros Dumbfounder accounted for the former, well-ridden by jockey Taylor. He came from behind and. catching Mallowmot midway of the stretch, won going away. Yankee Boy took the latter, but was fortunate in winning, as Hazel W.. which finished second, was probably best, but was the victim of hard lacing luck. The closest finish of the day came with the running of the second race when Lucky Run. a good-looking colt from the Missouri Stable, just hung on long enough to defeat the long-priced Our Tellie, with Billy Bern a bang-up third. During the running of the sixth race Cascade, ridden by jockey T. Wayt, bolted through the fence on the far turn. Luckily both horse and rider escaped injury. For failing to carry the proper weight in the fourth race Mallowmot, which finished second, was disqualified from obtaining part of the purse money, second money going to Stevenson, while Jacobean won third. Jockey Majestic was set down for three days for rough riding during the running of this race. Jockey T. Rae came from Akron to ride Huzzas in the sixth and returned to that point immediately after the race. Mallowmot. which carried the colors of F. W. Ritsch in the fourth race, was claimed by A. S. Eastman Cor .500. This makes the third time the gelding has been claimed at this meeting.
