The Fox Valley Businessmens Racing Association entertained the largest crowd of the meeting, approximately 8,000 people passing through the turnstiles. The card was a good one and the fields were evenly balanced, the Rialto Theatre Handicap being the feature race, which brought seven to the post, omong them being J. Heddermans consistent winner San-ola, which was one of the stars during the Hawthorne meeting. Sanola was considered to have this race at her mercy and the big crowd was thunderstruck when she was not only beaten but failed to get any part of the purse. W. C. Weants Moss Fox II. was winner of the feature race. He was given a splendid ride by Boganowski. B. A. Jones Go Foin was second, with Kauila, a long shot from E. E. Majors stable, third, and the heavily supported favorite, Sanola, finishing fourth. Moss Fox II. sprinted into a long lead at the start, with Go Foin second and Sanola third. They ran this way to the turn from the backstretch, where Montgomery, on Huon Pine, which had been running on the rail position, was shut off to such an extent that he had to take his mount up short, which eliminated him from all contention. Moss Fox II. had a substantial lead turning into the stretch, which he retained to the finish, with Go Foin second and Kauila third. Jones, on Sanola, had her next to the inner rail all through the stretch run, but did not persevere with her in the final drive when ho realized that it was of no avail. MARY BEAR BY NECK. The first race, a five-eighths dash for juvenile platers saw the well-supported Mary Dear the winner by a neck from the Tarn OShanter Stables Parnell with Miss Emmert third, a length and a half in front of Black Dinah. After a brief delay they were off to a good start and Mary Dear was the first to show from the bunch with Miss Emmert and Parnell leading the rest of the field. Mary Dear had a two and a half length lead entering the stretch but was forced to do her best to outlast Miss Emmert. L. Montgomery and Theo proved a winning combination in the second race, a three-quarters sprint. Lorena Marcellia, the favorite, was second, and Lierre, a long shot from the stable of M. Lowenstein, was third. After a brief delay at the barrier they were off in good alignment. Lorena Marcellia was the first to show from the bunch, with Fin-day and Fifty-Fifty running in the order named. There was some jamming turning from the backstretch, in which Finday ana Lorena Marcellia were the chief sufferers, but the latter recovered quickly and regained her position in second place behind Theo, which had a comfortable margin turning into the stretch. Theo retained her lead to the finish, with Lorena Marcellia second and Lierre third. BOBSON IN REVERSAL. The third race was won by H. W. Richards Dobson, which showed a sharp reversal of form over his previous performance. He was well supported in the betting. The Derby Stables Battle Shot was second, with Lady Choco taking the short end. They were off in good order and Yelton sent Ponjola to the lead, with Lady Choco and "Wong Bok in close pursuit. They ran this way to the half, where Zucchini sent Lady Choco into the lead, Ponjola dropping back to second and "Wong Bok moving into third place. It was at this point that Jones started to move up with Dobson, which gained rapidly from there on and won easily. G. "Williams rode the winner of the fifth race when he scored on the heavily supported favorite Big Sapp, from the stable of John Ttandolph.
