OTTAWA, Ont., May 28.— The Whirl-away Handicap at three-quarters for three- i -year-olds and over brought out the most respectable field of the program for the i second day of the Connaught Park meeting, : and resulted in a good contest in which Heel- 1 taps won by a length from Hillman. Lilt was 1 beaten another length for second money. A. J. Buja and Strut Miss Lizzie also ran. Lilt outran the others easily, while Heeltaps saved j second place. For the first half Hillman i pressed them closest. The other two began and raced sluggishly, leaving the contest at ] all times between the first three at the finish. : Heeltaps raced past the others and held Hill- ] man safe at the end. Lilt quit when challenged and ran a bad race for her. Vying in interest with the sprint was the Connaught Park Dominion Handicap, a mile ; contest for Canadian-breds in which five I participated. Boyal Visitor beat Chloris by a length after having much ill racing luck, i Kings Court was third. Maternal Pride and King Wave were the other two starters. It was on the first turn that Boyal Visitor be- : gan to encounter trouble, being shut off. After i passing the half, Chloris challenged Boyal Visitor and passed a half length to the front of him, but had nothing left when Boyal Visitor came to the outside of her after reaching the home stretch. The weather was much improved today , and a better sized crowd attended than on the chilly opening day. TRAYMORE GRADUATES. Maiden two-year-olds made the contest in the opener. J. Owens on Traymore won the dash with a half dozen others behind him at the end of its five-eighths. Owens sent the son of Sweep On away faster than he was gotten away from the gate in two previous races at Woodbine Park and, riding him well, saved ground when possible and won by a neck from Starmatia, which finished fast on the outside. Irish Belle was third. Lollipop won the jumping race somewhat easily. Nomls finished second a length behind him at the completion of the short course. Cavendish was third. Lollipop was sent to the front with a rush in the second turn of the field and withstood the challenge of Nomis. Flint beat a cheap band at three-quarters in the third race, but had his troubles in doing it. Ebb Tide beat the others for second place and was keeping Flint busy at the finish. Captain Clover was a good third. Flint raced close to the leaders and took a good lead in the stretch, but only outfinished Ebb Tide by a head. Boehm piloted S. Oddos Gen. Cadorna to a head victory over Natural in the final. Demos finished third another half length in the rear. The winner took the lead when near-ing the stretch and just lasted long enough. R. Romanelli rode his second winner of the afternoon in the sixth race when he piloted Heavy Artillery to a victory cf a length. | Don Juan finished second in the race, which was at a mile and seventy yairds. Winnipeg beat three others. After following Winnipeg to the top of the second turn Heavy Artillery took the lead, only to relinquish it to Don Juan in the stretch. The C. R.
