REPARATION TO FOREJS • . l Fast Son of Trojan Accounts in Feature at Bowie. . ♦ Hidden Jewel by a Narrow Mar- fi gin — Captain Costigan Again — , El Jesmar Beats Owasco. — — ♦ s I.oWIK Md .. April ft. —Matt Brady had designs on the Inaugural Handicap with ■ Joseph E. I avis Heparation, the fast running I son f hut along came the snow storm i g that brought postponement of the Howie1 opening .ind ;it the same time interrupted the | l training of Um handsome chestnut and he was 1 beaten. But Brady Beat a fit horse to the : i post this afternoon and lie redeemed himself ; . by galloping off with the six and a half fur- ! longs of the Mt. Vernon Handicap. It was t the feature race of the day and Preparation l took nj Itl pounds. j S Little time was lost at the post and McHane quickly took Heparation into the lead with 1 old Dunboyne. making his first appearance l t ruder silks in two years, chasing after him i 1 I and Lord Granite heading the remainder. The ! 1 t others were fairly close with the exception I of Tippity Witchet and he was a distant ! j 1 follower. i McLane had Heparation under a nice 1 steadying restraint and held to his lead with- ! 1 1 out hning to call on his mount. Dunboyne , I soon had I nough of the pace and as he] dropped buck beaten Stirling eased him in j the stretch with the result that he was last of the five. In the run through the stretch Lord Cranite i j under a hard drive drew up slightly on He- I .■•cLane riding with remarkable "confidence madeno move on the son oTTOM1 jan to have him winner by a length and a ] half with Lord Cranite six lengths before Shamrock and lie in turn was eight lengths . ; before Tippity Witehet. Dunboyne appeared I ! ] to come out of the race soundly and it is • | probable that the race will do him real good. The weather conditions were pleasant and [ while clouds screened the sun and top coats were needed a goodly crowd was out and the entertainment offered was up to the Howie standard. I MOM IMMI.Y AT POST. j H. J. Salts Birthday proved best of the ight that paraded in the mile and seventy . yards of the second race, but at the end he was doing his best to withstand the rush ot Night Haider, while Hoy From Home took j I third from Spugs. .Morn, by her bad actions at the post, was I j re.sponsihle for a long delay and when the , ! i barrier was sprung she wheeled sharply and was left. Antilles and Our Birthday were . the ones to show the way with the others ; la fairly dose order. At the half mile ground, t nir Birthday drew oat slightly and held j eemasand for the rest of the way. Antilles tired badly and Night Haider was forced to , go to the outside to find racing roim. He . closed a big gap and finished with exo 11 nt t courage. Bother, racing for Hal Parr, and ridden by! f the J. Shanks, had no difficulty in , accounting for the opening race of the ■ aft- moon, which was fashioned for tw ■-year-old . maidens. Benjamin Hlooks Tod J Hcnenac was the one to finish second, while K K. Mrs .sons Beruice Uarrar was third.] Hollowing a brief delay at the barrier the, field I ft la good alignment. Hither. begin-1 mug from the outside, quickly encircled her opponents and drew away into a long lead, which was at no stage seriously threatened, j Tod Boaeaor and Deraice Uarrar were the| ones to race in closest pursuit, while the remainder of the fi id for the first fiW-•lghlhs was elo-ely bunehed. Entering the stretch Bother continued to show the way , and at the end had a wide margin. Bother I was a pronounced choice with the crowd. I NPIMVIK.KS IN TMMT FINISH. i It was a stirring finish that came out of the third race which brought together ■ well balanced band Of sprinters and the winner ; turned i:p in M l s. A. Bwenkes faint hearted. Hidden Jew- I t y ■ narrow margin from Frank C. while Apex was third. An even dozen faced the starter ar.d following a good start there caaM BOOM erowdmg. Miss Pom-mo was unfortunate here for she was knocked back and failed to recover. Hidden Jewel and Apes were the quickest to begin and before an eighth had been covered Apex was ■ ttinc the pace. Prank Q hnproved ins i" tion n the laeide while Hidden Jewel came to the outside. Throagh the final eightli the trio raced heads apart. Apes began to tire through tie-final sixteenth and the race showed that be was short. Hidden Jewel finishing in the lest going was up in the closing Strides to earn i head verdict. Captain Iostigan. racing for J. If. Collins, reprinted his good performance of last week: aial naslly beat a small band of platers at a mile and seveaty yards. Mi/.ar was the one to race to second, while High ;ear closed with a rush to be third. The winner was ridden by the apprentice miner and after assuming command dominated the running Continued on tenth pace. REPARATION TO FORE Continued from first page. 1 for the remainder of the journey. Mizar made- a determined effort when straightened out in the stretch, but was not good enough. High Gear, an outsider, closed with a fast burst of speed on the outside in the linal eighth and barely managed to take down the short end of the purse. Captain Costi-gan was accorded lukewarm support in tho wagering. The mile and quarter that was the sixth offering brought about a first class core-st when Mrs. A. E. Alexandras Kl Jesmar was winner from W. Durnans Owasco. which in turn just lasted to save second place from G. C Miltons Attorney Muir. It was Owasco that cut out all the paco and through the early stages Dr. Rae chased after him. but it was of no avail and he could not head the son of Dick Finnell. Honolulu Boy also raced forwardly and Hearing the far turn Abel attempted to take him through on the inside. The others were in fairly close order with Pit lopping along in the rear. It was in the run through the stretch that the paeemaking took its toll and Owasco began to weaken, but he fought along gamely tl.cugh El Jesmar wore him down and in another stride, he would have lost second place to the fast finishing Attorney Muir. Had it not been for the use made of him in the running it is probable that Owasco would have lieen winner. The Mrs. A. K. Alexandra colors were carried to a double victory when Lord Wrack was returned the winner of the last race in a hard drive from Normal, while Hickory was third. The winner was ridden by Mc-r-gler and he overcame repeated interferen of from Normal at the stretch turn. The litter ran extremely wide entering the stretch and carried the winner out with him. while Hickory saved many lengths and finished on the inside. 1 A
