Peggie S., was - the main dependence of the Trenholme Stable. Sho finished fifth. The Trenholme colors also were carried to victory in the same race in 1915 when Red Post won for the Montreal sportsman. E. Ambrose had much to do with the victory, easy as it appeared.- To begin with Peggie S. was fractious at the post and delayed the start for four minutes. When the field was dispatched Warehouseman, from the rail and Peggie S., from the outside position went out to make the early running with Fitzallan in closest pursuit of the pair. Warehouseman showed the way to the filly by a length in the backstretch, while Jack Srine was in the middle of the bunch. When straightened away in the backstretch Ambrose found an opening and sent Jack Shrine into second position. As Warehouseman began to weaken nearing the stretch he took the lead and never was threatened thereafter. Dorval Boy was follower for nearly a mile and then began a run that brought him around his opponents o.nd into second position. He could not get to the leader, however, although ridden out. Approximately three thousand persons turned out to see the stake and six other races decided. The track was good and the weather pleasant. Poltova encountered considerable trouble in the early part of the mile of the third but won going away by two and a half lengths. H. Thomas had the leg on the H. S. Hart filly-. Tidal Wave beat Gold Rock two lengths for the second portion of the purse. Captain Haney in the silks of J. Koors beat the best band brought to the post in the course of the afternoon. The son of Rock-view was an extreme outsider and was well ridden by R, Fisher, the youngster from the Ross barn, about whom so many complimentary things have been said recently. He got through on the inside at the turn in the backstretch and won by three lengths from Wraith which beat New Hampshire by a nose for second money. Leatherwood, which J. J. Murphy trains for B. Harding, won the sixth. It brought out a fair field of platers for a three-quarters dash. Odd Seth finished second and Anne was third. Alertly and well ridden by F. Sharpe, F. Swehkes Thessaly made all the pace and held on to win by half a length from Chow. The race was at five and a half furlongs. Without finished third to this pair.
