MONTREAL, Que., June 12.— Spot Cash 1 today won the fourteenth renewal of the ,000 Windsor Hotel Cup Handicap for A. C. Bostwick. He won the race last year for the account of H. P. Whitney. F. Stevens had the leg on the son cf Broomstick today. Two and a half lengths behind the victor at the end of the mile and an eighth came Forest Lore from the barn of R. T. Wilson. 5 Opperman, from the Triple Springs Farm. I was four lengths farther toward the rear 1 and nosed out Deep Thought for the third j portion of the prize. The race was worth ,600 to the winner. 1 In a walk up start Forest Lore got a jump c at the barrier and went out in front. Round- t ing the first turn, however. Rebuke and Deep c Thought took the lead away from him and showed the way through the backstretch ] and part way around the turn. Straighten- 1 ing out Spot Cash made his move in earnest l and began to draw away. Forest Lore saved i ground and held on well, but cculd not over- 1 take the eventual winner. 1 The meeting came to a close this after- noon with conditions less pleasant than upon 1 the preceding days. It rained from early 1 morning until noon and slowed the track • considerably. The chief damage, however, was done to the attendance and to the spirits 1 of the loyal ones who did turn out. The 1 temperature was a bit low for enjoyment of 1 racing. 1 Chicklets Lang rode his third winner in ] a row in the St. Lawrence Handicap, fourth i number on the program: Although scratches reduced the field to three starters it was one of the best horse races seen here in many a day. Delusive finished first, Bigheart sec- ; ond and Baby Grand third, a length and a half and a neck separating the first from the I second and the second from the third at the I end of the seven-eighths. Bigheart went to the front from the start, but Baby Grand j : and Delusive moved alongside him and the three ran practically to the stretch on iden- • : tical strides. Baby Grand fell back straight- 1 ening out, as Delusive began to draw away from Bigheart. Both of them challenged the leader again, however, and Lang had to ride 1 the Riverdale Stables gelding out to win. Scorcher beat some of the best two-year -I olds that have been racing en the circuit : . 1 when he won the second dash of the after-. j noon. In it the juveniles were sent five and 1 1 a half furlongs for the first time in Canada! . i this year. Gymkhana finished second to 1 J. E. Maddens son of Frizzle and Contract! ;j was third in a field of six. Scorcher suf-1 j fered interference beginning the turn, but t was taken back and to the outside by L. . Lang and wore down Gymkhana just as i she seemed to have disposed of Contract. . Mormon Elder went to the front beginning r, the turn in the last race at the meeting and 1 stood punishment gamely to win by a good 1 length from Ashland. Demos beat the others. F. Lee donned the jacket of H. B. , Holmes to ride the winner. j Coral Reef won his fourth straight racei in the opener, beating Little Claire, Radiancy! rj and four ether platers at three-quarters.; . j Soobie had the mount on the J. W. Kearns lj representative. He moved around Radiancy; r nearing the turn and opened up an easy lead. . I I .ittle Claire caught Radiancy in the last six- - ] teenth. Bucado, running in the silks of J. F. . j Resche made every post a winning one in 1 the third, finishing out the mile two and a 1 half lengths in front of Sligo, which came I with a rush to catch Frosty Boy tiring for - the second portion of the purse. L. Iang rode the winner, his second in succession.
