GRACE MAYERS AND JOLLY Captures Principal Races at Maple Heights Wednesday. First Mentioned In Easy Triumph Jolly Earns Seek Decision Over Dust-flowcr Foster Emury Scores. MAPLE HEIGHTS, CLEVELAND, Ohio, Sept 17. Taking command after going the first three-quarters, E. W. Moores Grace Mayers held her opponents safe all through the stretch in the ,000 handicap, the fifth race which featured the program provided at Maple Heights Park this afternoon. Closing up from the rear through the last quarter, The Plainsman outlasted Louis A. for second place, Mayor Carrel raced prominently to the stretch then tired. Jou Jou, the early pacemaker, quit to a walk when challenged. The secondary feature, a handicap at three-quarters, attracted some good sprinters and resulted in a stirring finish in which Padgett and Doughertys Jolly earned a neck decision over the fast closing Dust-flower. Topango cut out a fast early pace for his stablemate, with Dustflower in closest pursuit Entering the stretch Jolly slipped through on the inside and this advantage enabled him to win. Kings Ransom dropped into third position when Topango retired in last eighth. Despite the threatening conditions of the weather a good mid-week day crowd witnessed the sport. The rain failed to materialize and the track was little injured by this mornings shower. Foster Embry took command after rounding the far turn in the concluding dash and held his opponents safe in the stretch. In the final drive Uncle Velo, the pacemaker, outgamed Biddledee for second place. A rousing finish came with the running of the opening dash when Light Sand barely lasted to earn the verdict from the weakly ridden Pink Tea. O. C. Hutchison, a first time starter and a good looker, displayed fine speed to the stretch then tired, but finished third. It was also by the shortest of margins that Froth got up to snatch victory from Jack Pot, the pacemaker, in the second race. In the final drive Banker Brown outlasted Bill Blackwell for the short end of the purse. This marked the first victory for jockey E. OBrien since his arrival here. Get Em had much the best of the ragged start in the third race and never relinquished the lead to score handily from Follow Me". The latter closed considerable ground from a bad send-off and was most probably the best. Tister was a bang-up third after racing well throughout. C. W. Halls Jaunebar, away in motion, made the most of his advantage and never left the result in doubt in the fourth. Beg Pardon was always second, while Seths Dream closed resolutely to get third place. J. McGraw claimed Seths Dream out of the fourth race for ,500 but C. R. Aldridge filed a protest with the stewards on the grounds that In Doubt, which ran in Mc-Graws name, is not his property. A decision will be given tomorrow.
