IRISMOND WINS PRIX LUPIN Is Now Considered Dangerous Rival to Famous French Crack Epinard. SPECIAL CABLEGRAM. PARIS. France, June 4. — The Prix Lupin, the iirst of the three big fixtures of the Paris racing season, forming the French turf triology-— the other two being the Prix du Jockey Club, the French Derby, and the Grand Prix— was won at Longchamps by Irismond, a three-year-old, which, although well thought of by his stable, had not hitherto achieved anything justifying his being placed in the class of the favorites for these classics. Irismonds victory, however, was incontestable. He won with surprising ease and is now considered as a dangerous rival in popularity to Epinard, whose star looks dimmer to many people since his two defeats. Gros Morne, one of the favorites for the Grand Prix, finished second well back of Irismond, with Scaramouche and Vineuil close up third and fourth. Filibert l e Savoie, winner of the Grand Prix last year, maintained his reputation by .winning the 1rix Rainbow easily, his staying powers carrying him brilliantly over the 5,000 meters course. Raignoire was second and Rocking Chair third. J. Leonard Replogies Optimist, one of ths favorites for the Grand Prix, is the subject of much interest in turf circles here and his showing in the Epsom Derby is awaited with keen interest.
