Md., April 21.— For the first time since the opening of eastern racing this season one of the horses of Commander J. K. L. Ross, whose stable at one time was almost certain to produce two or three winners at Havre de Grace, finished in the front of a procession past the finish. Golden Rule carried the Canadian jacket to its initial victory in the Delaware Handicap this afternoon, running a mile and seventy yards in 1 :43°i over a slow but drying out track. Golden Rule made all the pace and finished under restraint, beating Golden Billows by two lengths. That latter today suffered defeat after five straight victories. Minto II. finished third in the Delaware field. Although the Delaware Handicap was the most valuable race to the winner of the seven contested at Havre de Grace this af- ternoon, the Susquehana Purse vied with it in interest because of the presence in the field of Modest, the three-year-old son oC Colin — Shyness whick J. F. Shorr is pre- paring to carry the silks of E. B. McLean in the big three-year-old stakes of the year. The Susquenhanna called for a race at a mile and seventy yards. Modest won handily from Sarko with Suppliant and A. J. Buja. the other starters, beaten off, but not handily enough to indicate that he will be a seriou* factor among the topnotch three-year-olds. Pete Walls had the mount on Modest, his second straight winner. Sarko outran the son of Colin and Suppliant also outfooted the Washington colt. Modest however, galloped along easily in third position. Rounding the turn Walls called for more speed. Modest responded readily and came to the outside and wore down Sarko. ANOTHER BIG CROWD. A crowd as large as that of Saturday. when there were 14.000 paid admissions, turned out for the racing this afternoon. Beater Monday, a holiday, was responsible for the big patronage. Thirteen cheap platers made the contest in the second and Dan Boiling turned out to be the best at the weights and distance of three-cruarters. Barnes could not keep the S. Gooch gelding among the leaders in the first quarter, but brought him to the outside on the turn. He finished faster than any of the others. Tidings and Humble split the small portions of the purse. These two ran together from the start. After an eighth. Tidings opened up on the Maintenant filly and held her safe, although hard pressed and unable to withstand the challenge of Dan Boiling, which was coupled in the field with Doughnut, Brass Band and South Breeze. Cloudland, a disappointment on Saturday, won going away from the other two-year-olds which contested the four and a half furlongs of the opening race. The footing did not differ much from that in which he ran last out. although it was slightly drier. Earla Baby had more speed than the other eight, but swerved to the deep footing next to the inside rail after straightening out and was passed by Toppanite. Then Cloudland came through the best going and drew away from both, winning by two 1- ngths. Ambrose had the mount. Cloudland is by Wrack, from Fairy Ray. BUCK POND HOMK FIRST. A. S. Wood 1 iff e saddled Buck Pond for B. Maginnis, a New Orleans horseman, for the first time since departure from the r.-scent City and the son of Peter Quince came home on the front end in the third. It was a live and a half furlongs dash. J. II. Burke had Buck Pond off in frcnt, meed Deputy into d. feat and had plenty for Leatherwoods challenge, although his margin at the end was narrow. Buck Pond was the eecond fteei horse to score in as many mean Invictus and New Rival were coupled with him. The days program was ere* a rather slow-track which improved gradually and became t;ood as the afternoon wore along. Harrows and a half-hearted sun helped in the drying. Because of the delay to a lJ-car special carrying a crowd from Philadelphia the first race was ten minutes late in going to the post. The entire program lagged in consequence. The New York train also was late arriving. Blue Streak shot out of the bunch in the last half mill of the sixth and won going away from Khb Tide by a length. Rechabite just got up for third money. Wallace rode the winner. Royce Rods, making his first start of hi.-* tenth year of life, made all the pace and won the seventh easily with F. Sharpe in the saddle. Seths Flower and Rosa Yeta finished second and third to the veteran son of Salvation— Saintolat.
