Cosdens Chesapeake. Preakness and Derby stock rose as a remit of the victory of Nautical in the Pacific Purse at Havre de Grace today. The Sea King cult is the main dependence f the Baltimore horseman for the big thr. •••-year-old stake races. Beading from start to finish in the Pacific. Nautical Won mure easily than his half lengfa margin over Minto II. would indicate. Wilkes-Barre finished hehind this pair and ahead of three others after running a mile and seventy yards. Wallace easily assumed the lead with Nau-ti al. As easily he showed the way with the son of Sea King. So well did he judge the pace that he covered the r.VI 9 and seventy yards in 1 :44 without asking vutical to strain himself at any part of the journey. It was more of a workout than a race. Bounding the far turn Ambrose, on Minto II.. had a lead of two lengths, under which Nautical had been cantering, but it was on sufferance. In the stretch he closed some more ground. Wallace had Nautical at call ■Jert to possible surprise that did not materialize. Nautical seems to have grown in the few days that intervened between his two races of U 24. He is a handsome colt and thoroughly fit. Sunshine. ?i fast track and a warmer tern- . perattire than has prevailed on any previous • lay Of the meeting, made the seventh afternoon of the Havre de Grace meeting the most agreeable of the meeting. WHIP HEAT JULIA M. The weakness of the practice of giving whips to apprentice boys was emphasized at the finish of the third race, a three-quarters dash, in which Barleycorn defeated a targe band of shifty platen. Julia M. would have won had B. Bang been put up whipless. She finished second. Flax beat the others. Mumble picked the trail through the back-atretch and around the turn and then weakened. Barleycorn succeeded to leadership and headed toward the judges with an open j lead. In the stretch Julia If. came to *ie outside after having been messed about con-sid. rably. She was at the height of h.r ! • harge aad apparently destined to win when Bang pulled his fatal whip and threw the Arthur mare off her stri B i:i wielding it | twice. Julia M. was a neck behind the win-n.r when stung and a neck behind him when the race was over. Barleycorn was coupled With Bun Mart. Aeuntius and Spartan as the field. Humboldt took the track at the beginning of the fifth, showed the way for a mile and an eighth and won by two lengths from Tra- i janus. which had closely pressed the H. Hughes colt all the way. J. Burke, the! meetings lading rider, had the winning j mount. Maryland Belle wore I.ord Wrack down for the small end of the purse. Br. d Hopkins brought out a smart filly for H. P. Whitney in the opening race. She is a brown, by hide — Plying Witch, and is i named Mother Qsoao. She clipped two-fifths of a second off the three-year-old track rec-ord of St. Maurice, running the four and a half furlongs in ::.:. Mother Goose per- f.rmed against maiden two-year-old fillies. Primrose and Imagination, from the stables of W. J. Salmon and J. S. Cosden finished second and third. CJ. VIM OF FOIL DISALLOWED. Mother Goose and Primrose raced together the first martar in :23. Then Primrose fell ba. k slightly. The half was reached in :i i. Mother Goose was alone in the van where Bhe remained to win by two lengths easily. An eighth i ut. Mother Gooae staggered out of h.-r course into the path pre-empted by . Jrinu. ia Marin.lli claimed foul, but there had been no interference and the stewar.Ls ordered I ip the official sign after listening: half-heartedly to his complaint. Thrills apl-nty resulted from the jumping raca. Byng. under the silk* of Bayard Warren, whose bones are trained by W. Booth, completed the two-mile course first. Hold Foyle earned ■• ■ nd money for BJchaid Tending Vicaire finished thin. Three of the eight starters failed to finish. Campbell pulled u| Port B"»tia alter the t- r.tii Jump. Rocking Horse unseated ONeill at the twelfth. Lollipop bcbbled the final fence, throwing . Smoot over hi- head al a tfane arben le Memad to have the purse at bis mercy. ;■■!•!
