! I ! AU REVOIR AT BOWIE ♦ Tony Beau Wins Feature Race of Closing Day. ♦ ■ Double for Nevada Stock Farm — Go Foin and Wood Lady Carry-Its Colors Successfully. ■ ♦ BOWIE. Md.. April 15.— The Bennings Purse, which occupied the feature position on the program for the final days racing at Prince Ceorge Park this afternoon, resulted in a victory for James Arthurs Tony Beau in a hard drive from J. F. Richardsons Top Sergeant, while T. W. OBriens Shamrock was a distant third. The field which contested was the best of the afternoon and continued the spirited racing which the other derby had furnished. The winner had shown several good performances in public and when the official placing was displayed the victory proved a popular one. The final days racing wound up the meeting in the proverbial blaze of glory. Overhead conditions were all that could be desired and it was a crowd of large proportions that journeyed to the course. The program which was provided furnished an after- noon of interesting racing while the track was at its best. In the running of the Bennings Purse, at a mile and seventy yards, there was no delay at the barrier before starter Snyder had the field away in good alignment. Top Sergeant was the first to show in front and he led the band around the first turn, by a safe margin. Tony Beau was racing along after him next to the inner rail while Llewellyn was bringing up the rear. Top Sergeant continued to show the way until the stretch turn was reached and it was here that jockey Abel made his move that eventually brought victory. Top Sergeant running true, however, was not through and it was only in the final strides that he gave way to the winner. Shamrock ran his usual race although he appeared a trifle sore going to the post. He, however, did not seriously menace the leaders although he held Id ward Cray safe for the short end of the purse.

The Nevada Stock Farm accounted for its second victory of the afternoon, when Wood Lady was the winner of the fourth race in a drive from J. McMillens Aggravating Papa while J. P. Polk was third with Seths Flower. The winner was ridden by jockey F. J-ee and rcunding the first turn he saved many lengths which were a deciding factor at the tnish. Once in front Lee rated his mount along under slight restraint. Aggravating Papa lost some ground rounding the lirst turn but slipped through next to the inner rail when lie made his move. Wood Iady, however, had a little left and drew away when put to the test. Seths Flower finished resolutely to be third, while Zama. after being in a tangle, was practically eliminated. Mrs. A. K. Alexandra supplied another winner in Sweepstakes, which rather easily boat out a field of sprinters at six and a half furlongs. Hidden by W. Marriner, he led home Sea Sand and Warning. The field attracted considerable interest in a speculative way and the winner was accorded the majority f the support. Beginning from an outside position he quickly found his way to the leaders and when called upon disposed of Sea Sand to win by a safe margin. The latter showed a flash of early speed but could not stall off the rush of the winner. Warning ran her usual good race. Jockey D. Stirling was a vast improvement over jockey J. Wallace astride Bill Winfrey, and at the end the juvenile that races for G. C Winfrey was the winner of the opening race, which was fashioned for two-year-olds, under claiming conditions, at a halt" mile. Mrs. J. P. Mayberrys Foyle was the one to finish second, while K. P. Whitneys Parmachenee Belle was up in the final strides to be third. The winner was kept in a forward position under hustling tactics and. racing on the outside, disposed of Foyle at the furlong post and was drawing clear at the end. Foyle showed a good performance, but weakened when challenged, while Parmachenee Belle finished with a rush from a slow beginning to be third by a narrow margin. The Nevada Stock Farm accounted for another purse when the heavily backed C!o Foin was returned an easy winner of the Prospect PurfW Which was at five and a half furlongs. Bidden by jockey P. Bee, he had no trouble in disposing of the band he was asked to meet and at the end led home !um-mells Much Ado and J. Arthurs Leonard CL The start was delayed several minutes due to the fractious b-havior of Freedoms Call. The latter got the best of jockey J. Chalmers, and ran away an eighth before he was placed under restraint when the start came. Black Art was the first to show in front, but his advantage was momentary, for Co Poin drew away when called upon and from then on never left the result in doubt. Much Ado was doing his best to stall off Leonard Q. . a.
