£, a at t b of t to e t c I a f r T ] j , 1 1 ] , ] I 3 ; ; 1 Twenty Years Ago Today 2 — i Chief Turf Events of June II, 1904 Racing at Gravesend, Harlem, Latonia, Buffalo, Hamilton, Union and Fair Grounds Park St. Louis. The race for the Clark Stakes, a magnet that attracted a splendid crowd — one of the ■ best of the local season — to Harlem today, developed a hair-raising four-horse finish, out t which John W. Schorrs Moharib was ridden 1 t a well-earned victory over the mile and one- [ eighth route by jockey Aubuchon. He won 1 by a neck and heads apart behind him were I Bill Curtis, Flo Bob and Proofreader in the e order named. The big disappointment was the e showing of the favorite, English Lad, which j finished fifth. Ten started. J. Arthurs Bondage, - winner of the Harlem National Handicap, was the winner of the fourth race, an overnight handicap, beating Bragg and Lord Badge B rather easily. Bryn Mawr, Highball, The Southerner and j Rapid Water was the order of the Brooklyn n , Derby today at Gravesend. Orthodox declined d the issue, leaving the above named four to 0 contest for the ,500 added money. It was is an easy victory for the Goughacres Stable colt, * Lyne rating him along behind the pacemaker, r Highball, and, taking the lead at the three-quarters !- post, went on to win by himself. • f Highball was erratic and, running out on n the turns, was pulling up to keep from bolting, I, then when Hildebrand gave him his head came ie again and, finishing with a belated rush, easily i_ disposed of The Southerner and Rapid u Water to take second place. The net value le to the Goughacres Stable was 0,000. Notwithstanding * Highballs indifferent showing, L the original intention of sending him on for r the American Darby will be carried out. The colt will leave for Chicago Sunday morning.
