HAVANA DRENCHED HEAVILY 4 Rain Restores the Previous Bad Track Conditions. Finishes Are Closely Fought Ont to the High Enjoyment of a Large Attendance. 4 HAVANA, Cuba, Jan. 26. Plentiful rain , last night destroyed the hope for better track racing and the going today was about as bad as it could be. Yet the racing was highly exciting and interesting, for the reason that, without exception, the finishes were desperately and closely contested. The usual 1 good Saturday attendance marked the occa- sion and those present were well repaid for their enterprise. Backers started well when the well-backed favorite Cuba Encanto landed the first race by the margin of a half length in front of , Queen Mazonia, with St. Just and Jacobean , pressing the pair closely. The next three races brought them woe in large chunks. The outsider Fannie Nail managed to squeeze home first in the second, with old AVilligan second and the 20 to 1 shot Annette Teller a close third. The favorites Chow and Polite were nowhere. Hughie showed improvement and won the third race all the way, but finished in a tight fit with Mad Nell and Jack Frost. Then Miss Liberty, at a long price, took the fourth from Regal Lodge by a short neck, with the odds-on favorite Hullo but a half length back of the two.
