NEW HAMPSHIRE BY A NOSE Wins the D and C Handicap After Sparkling Performance. Ross Color Bearer and Will Land Provide Thrilling Last Eighth Duel Two for Montreal Turfman. WINDSOR Ont, Aug. 25. Under a particularly good ride by Pete Walls, New Hampshire won the tenth renewal of the D and C Handicap at the course of the Windsor Jockey Club this afternoon. The son of Granite beat Will Land by a nose in the three-quarters dash. It was the second winner of the afternoon for the stable of Commander J. K. L. Ross and the second for the rider. New Hampshire lacked the speed necessary to stay with the pacemakers getting away from the barrier. In the first quarter of a mile however Walls got him close to the front horse by following an outside course and then moved over to the inside rail. He saved ground around the turn and got through at the head of the stretch when Energy and Will Land came slightly wide. Energy had been in the lead from the start and Will Land moved around two others to contest the purse with him on the turn. After taking the lead New Hampshire had only Will Land to contend with since Energy had been used up making the pace. The Ross horse began to draw away from Will Land near the eighth post but tired slightly under 116 pounds in the closing strides and was doing his best to win. Energy held on for third money. The semi-final day of the meeting was ideally cool and the track was fast. The attendance held up to the off day average between 4,000 and 4,500 taking in the sport. Manila, from the stable of J. K. L. Ross, won the opening race with Royal Pearl and El Canoe from the Kenton Stable second and third. The distance was five furlongs, for Canadian-bred two-year-olds. Walls rated Manila just back of Royal eParl until they straightened but in the stretch and then drove her into a lead of a length and a half, which she held to the finish.
