A good card and ideal weather greeted the players at Devonshire today. The program was .made up of a series of claiming races which brought out large fields arid resulted in spirited finishes. Long prices had the talent at sea trying to pick them right. The feature race at five and a half furlongs for two-year-olds brought about a stirring finish between Glister and Traymore, with the former getting the verdict by- half a lengh. Traymore was on the outside of the winner and ran an excellent race.. My Idol ran a good race from a slow beginning. The time, 1 :0G, is just one-fifth of a second slower than the track record. The first race resulted in a victory for T. Nicholsons Sweet Note, which defeated the Tri-State Stables Lady Marian by half a. length in a driving finish with Black Art third. From a good start the winner took a lead of two lengths while Lady Marian was racing in fourth position. Black Art was much used in following the winner and tired in the final drive. The others were outrun at all tmes. . , The second race brought out a small field of Canadian-breds and resulted in a hollow victory for IT. B. Laryeys Bona Fide which followed Lady Heart closely for the first half mile where lie passed her easily and was only cantering at the end. June Fly was far. out of it in the early running but was easily best of the others. Plymouth Bock ran as If short. Caledon propped at the start and had no chance. The fourth race, a claiming affair for maiden two-year-olds, brought out a large field and from a good start Gleg went to the front and under a good ride outstayed-My Biddy.

Cleg escaped the interference from which the others suffered and it aided him materially. Jingle and Head Line were the main sufferers. James Arthurs Fehrah won the fifth race in a driving finish from Previeux and Doctor Glenn. Lang had Fehrah away well and saving much ground he lasted to win. Doctor Glenn was probably best but was forced to race on the outside and was going fastest of all at the finish. First Call ran a good race. The nonstaying Lieutenant Farrell showed much early speed but quit badly. The sixth race at one mile and a quarter resulted in an easy victory for the consistent Doctor Jim racing in the colors of B. E. Chapman. It marked his third straight victory. He was restrained back of Tender Seth, the early pacemaker, and when called on he easily passed the others and won by three lengths. Tender Seth ran a good race but the effort of setting the early pace told on him. Tippo Sahib ran an even race and would have been second in another stride. Night Haider was lame going to the post but ran a good race.
