J. K. L ROSS LUCK CHANGES Golden Rule and Muttikins Run One -Two in Feature Race at Blue Bonnets. MONTREAL, Que., June 10.— With the Monklands Handicap as a feature the seven-day meeting of the Montreal Jockey Club passed through the fifth afternoon of its duration with continued evidence that the meeting is to be one of the most successful in the history of the Blue Bonnets course. The weather man again favored the association and a large sized off-day crowd came out to enjoy the usual brand of high-class racing. Five competed in the Monksland, which was at a mile for three-year-olds and over. J. K. L. Ross, whose poor luck at the meeting his been in decided contrast to former years, saw his colors finish one -two in this feature. Although the horses of the presi- , dent of the Montreal Jockey Club have been in action daily it was the first victory of the meeting for his silks. Golden Rule finished first for the Montreal breeder and horseman. Muttikins was second. Shuffle Along staggered in third. Calcutta and Stone Jug made up the remainder of the field. Eddie Kummer, riding for the first time on the circuit this year, took Shuffle Along to the front immediately after the start and ! tried to rate the A. C. Bostwick gelding in I front for the mile, but after three-quarters I of it had been run Walls moved around him with Gclden Rule and drew away into a three and a half lengths lead. He was under re- ! straint at the end and his stablemate was I under an even stouter pull in finishing a length in front of the favorite, which would have been passed by Calcutta in a few more strides. Pete Walls followed his victcry astride Golden Rule with one on Kings Ransom in the sixth race. It was a claiming handicap designed for speed at five and a half furlongs. Admiral showed in front for a stride or two shortly after the start. Sunny Light took the lead from him and Ablaze ran away from them both, opening up a long lead on the turn. Walls brought the Victoria Stable representative between Mercury on the rail and Ablaze on the outside and got him up to win by a neck, with a head between Ablaze and Mercury at the end. Marie Dattner beat a cheap band of maiden two-year-olds with utmost ease in the first race. Hustled to the front by Wallace, the daughter of Theo. Cook never was threatened, winning by two and a half lengths under a pull. Aggie finished second and Let Me Forget third. Maiden jockeys had the mounts in the third. George King, astride St. Quentin, from the string of J. W. Beamish, got home an easy winner after a gcod exhibition. He rushed the old gelding to the front in the j backstretch and rated him there. Carry On I and Avispa finished second and third, the ■ latter losing much ground. I Double Tip, representing James Carruthers in the members steeplechase, got up in the ; final stride under good riding to win by a . nose from The Trout, which carried the silks of Miss H. Ross. Chuckle, carrying the I jacket of Miss T. MacDougall, finished third. I M. OConnor rede the winner. He rated him I off the pace made by Rocking Horse, made I his move with a little more than half a mile 1 of the two miles still to be run and triumphed by a neck in a drive that lasted from the ! landing at the final fence.
