GLEN RIDDLE STABLE — — — — ♦ Stars in Winning Three of Pimli- cos Seven Races. . » Dinna Care Wins the Stake Race of the Day — Sallys Alley Is Beaten by June Grass. ♦ Pmi rco. Md., May 2.— Trainer Gwyn Tompkins and the Glen Riddle Stable enjoyed a field day at Pimlico this afternoon, winning three of the days races, including the best offering, the Jennings Handicap, at three quarters, which Dinna Care took in a severe drive from Champlain, while Hildtir was third. The handicap brought together a well matched field and Dinna Care received tin- bulk of support. There was but little delay at the start. Hildnr. Champlain and Dinna Care were quickest to begin, while Careful. Exodus. Transom and Polly Ann were quickly outrun. The three leaders made a terrific pace for the first half and the Ross star was the first to succumb. Kummer had Dinna Care on the ii:.--id while Champlain was racing lapped with him. Through the stretch the pair fought on even terms and seventy yards from the end Champlain poked his head in front and Dinna Care appeared beaten. Hut Kumnur put up a desperate finish and Dinna Care came again at the end, and his sameness landed him first in the final stride. Hildur was a beaten third. The disappointment of the race was the showing of Careful. The latter was outrun all the way and at no time showed her best form. The race had JG.ODD added and netted the Hen Riddle Stable the sum of ,850 for the winners portion. IDEAL RACING CONDITIONS. Weather conditions which prevailed at Pimlico are all that could be desired. A warm sun shone from a spotless sky and the racing atrip was at its best. A sprinkle of rain which fell last night following the running of the last race put a cushion on the track that was springy. The card was one of splendid merit and brought together weil-matchi «1 fields. The racing was of a spirited nature pad the majority of the winners were forced to sustain driven to earn their lcspective rac«-s. The crowd showed an increase over that which journeyed to the course yesterday. June Crass, a four-year-old son of Short Crass Comsora. ridden by Claver. enrolled his name upon the big honor roll at lim-lico and set up a new track record for a mile in 1 i.lTV, when he beat Sallys Alley in decisive fashion in the Ashburton Purse. Golden Rule was third. The Kilmer filly pulled up tir.-d and sufficient excuses can be offered for her failure. Picketer and Sedge-field were withdrawn from the congest and a field of five faced the starter. The start was a good one, but Sallys Alley was bumped slightly. Claver immediately sent June Grass to the front and set a tremendous pace, Johnson had Sallys Alley in close pursuit, but under stout restraint, while Golden Rule was a distant third. Ilea, making his first appearance this year, and Fair Way cut no figure in the race. While rounding the stretch turn June Crass still had a well-defined advantage and it was at this point that Johnson called upon his mount. Sallys Alley responded and threatened to overhaul the leader, but June Crass hung to his advantage gamely and Sallys Alley began to tire. When Johnson realized that she was beaten he did not punish her. The winner, in establishing a new track record, clipped two-fifths of a second from the old mark, held by Mad Hatter and made two years ago. June Grass was in receipt of weight from the Kilmer star and a year in age. SIR il.KX NEGLECTED. Sir Glen, racing for the Glen Riddle Stable, was the winner of the first race of the day in a drive from Aunt Jane, while Happy Night was third. A field of thirteen started for the ra«e and Aunt Jane, which was grouped in the field, was accorded the bulk of the support, while Sir Glen was neglected A fall, which for a moment appeared to be a serious one. but fortunately resulted in no injuries for horses or riders, happened at the first jump in the running of the Baltimore Steeplechase over the two-mile course. A field of eleven maidens raced. At the first obstacle Kraft fell and Cavendish fell over him. Before Vtcaire and Parlays could be guided wide they piled into the helpless mass of entangled horses. Brigadier General showed the way and at the next fence Bloor fell. The winner turned up in the Glen Riddle Stables Brigadier General, which had a safe margin over Treviscot. while Chuckle was third. John Austin was the only one remaining to finish. Billy Barton scored the first victory for Sam Louis during the meeting when he won the third race, at a mile and a sixteenth.

Uoss Dion dOr, ridden Ivy Claver, accounted for the Forest Park Purse, secondary feature of the card, winning easily from Flagstaff and Reparation. The race was at three-quarters and a field of speedy sprinters went to the post. The leaders raced in a compact bunch through the first half mile, while Flagstaff was away slowly, but soon raced into second place. Leaving the half mile ground there was some crowding and Moonraker and Verdant Valley were the chief sufferers. The stable of P. P. Rice will be shipped to Maple Heights for that meeting and thence to Canada. Joseph McLennan, who is soliciting stake entries for the Woodbine Park spring stake races, was highly gratified with the response from owners. Admiral Cary T. Grayson came over from Washington to witness the running of the Ash burton purse, being represented by the runner up in last years Preakness Stakes, Ilea. Trainer T. J. Healey has nominated R. T. Wilsons Preakness Stakes and Kentucky Derby candidates. Tall Timber and Wilderness to the 0,000 Toronto Cup, to be run at Woodbine Park.
