RAINBO GARDEN DAY Brings Thespians to Hawthorne in Almost Forgotten Tallyhos. -. Brunswick Takes the Feature - Race From Pindar Peel in a Close Finish. HAWTHORNE RACE TRACK, Aug. 12. The Cincinnati Stables Brunswick captured the Rainbo Garden Highweight Handicap featuring the card this afternoon and bringing to the course a goodly number of the theatrical profession in addition to the usual big patronage of regulars. The Rainbo Garden guests lent an old-time atmosphere to the occasion by coming to the course in horse-drawn tallyhos. The race was endowed with ,500 in added money and an ornate silver cup, the gift of the Rainbo Garden management. Five fairly good sprinters went to the post, -with Dr. Hickman a slight favorite over Brunswick and The Runt, and Pindar Peel also coming in for substantial support. The early racing found Dr. Hickman and The Runt in command, alternating in a slight lead until straightened away for the stretch tattle, where Brunswick and Pindar Peel made their swiftly delivered challenges. Brunswick stood the test best and likewise shouldered his heavy impost gamely and it enabled him to win by a half length from Pindar Peel. The Runts performance under 130 pounds was also a sparkler. It was quite a task for a three-year-old to concede the big chunks of weight he did to older opposition. SnOWERT WEATHER. . Intermittent showers that developed during the afternoon did not mar the sport to any extent. Mhe improved going also contriouted to enhance the interest of the racing. Several close finishes had the crowd highly excited. The failure of favorites was again disappointing. The choices were downed with regularity. There were no outstanding long-priced victors, however. They all had ample support The eastern-owned Marionette scored in the closest finish of the afternoon when she just got up in time to outstay Lady Fox with Lord Granite in close proximity to the pair and going the fastest when of no avail. Lord Granite Was making his first start I in a long time, but was accorded favoritism. He raced far back of the leaders in the early running but settled to his task in the stretch and finished wearing the leaders down. Marionette displayed more gameness than usual in coming from bohind to win. Balboa, owned by G. H. and J. T. Clay, graduated from the maiden ranks in the opening race, when he led for the entire distance and won easily from Try Again, with Special in third place: The locally owned Will Wells was the medium for a big plunge but he never figured seriously at any part of the running. He stumbled just before reaching the stretch, but he failed to improve his position to any extent in the last, eighth. Balboa was ridden by Garner and he rode energetically from the start. Try Again was the medium of some heavy backing near the end at good odds. Special which finished in third place raced forwardly until in the last sixteenth. BLACK DLTfAII LOSES RIDER. The International Stable added a purse to its record when Stay On won the second race for which Little Jimmy w;as the favored one. Black Dinah, one of the starters here, lost Eaton, her rider, immediately after the start, as a result of stumbling. Little Jimmy and Stay On were the leaders with Stay On taking the lead just before reaching the stretch and after that it was merely a canter for him to keep in advance. The surprise was furnished by Anna H., which responding gamely to hard riding, wore Little Jimmy down for second place. The tatters showing was not as good as his previous two races. Clique might have figured more extensively in the race had Fronk desisted from plying the whip on him as vigorously as he did. The colt never was given a breathing spell and he resented the punishment in the stretch by a failure to extend himself. The concluding race found Over Fire the favored one but after appearing the winner, when an eighth out, gave way to the persistent rush of Dobson, which had met with interference earlier. Pollymara finished in third place. After the finish Over Fire went to a new stable, Henius and Earl having claimed him at a cost of ,000. The erratic and sulky Ramkin was again made a big favorite and again he proved a dismal failure, being soundly beaten in the fifth race by Gail Ford and Slanderer. Ramkin raced as if refusing to extend himself and was far back during the early running. He moved up in the last quarter as if he would down Gail Ford but near the end again pinned his ears back and was beaten out by Slanderer in the last few strides for second places
