Warm, sum-hierlike weather greeted the large throng that journeyed out to Exposition Park this afternoon to witness the sport for the twenty-third days racing of the Fox Valley Business Mens Racing Association. The card tvas an excellent one, of which the Society Handicap, at one mile and a sixteenth, was the feature. The third race at, five-eighths, served as the secondary attraction and six Df the best sprinters that could be mustered out answered the bugle. Again the talent got a jolt when E. E. Majors Kauila, which was well supported by the wise element, got home a neck in front of the heavily backed favorite, Prince Tii Tii . in the Society Handicap, leading from start to finish. Billy Star beat Dustabout, which came in for considerable support for the short end of the purse. Off in good order, Majestic lost no time with his mount and sent Kauila into a commanding lead rounding the first turn. Dustabout, which had been allowed to drop far back in his previous starts, forced the pace to the half and dropped back to third place. When Prince Ti Tii moved up at that point they raced in the order named to tht, turn for home, where Kauila was enjoying a lead of a length and a half. Prince Tii Tii was taken wide and Billy Star worked his way up on the inside to second place. Majestic rode his mount vigorously and landed him a winner by a neck from the fast finishing Prince Tii Tii, the latter being three and a half lengths in front of the tiring Billy Star. Dustabout was two and a half lengths behind him for third money. SOItLINES rOOR RACE. About the crudest piece qf riding and reversal of form came about in the running of the opening race when the top-heavy favorite, Sorline, finished outside of the money in one of the slowest races of the meeting, of which Lady Newtown was returned the winner, with Mitzi McGee, well supported getting two lengths in front of la Belle. No time was lost at the start and Dean had them off in perfect alignment, with Mitzi McGee, the good thing, stepping right to the lead. La Belle forced the pace and Jenks was leading the others. Boganowski allowed Sorline to drop back until he was about ten lengths behind the leader turning for home. Jenks quit and La Belle dropped back to third when Lady Newtown circled her opponents and came on to win by a neck victory from Mitzie McGee, two lengths in front of La Belle, Sorline getting in fourth after racing in close quarters all through the stretch run. The stewards questioned jockey Boganow ski after the first race in. regards to the running of the horse Sorline and he stated that the horse was practically dead under him and did not respond to the hard riding he gave him. CRESCENT ALL THE WAT. Eleven sprinting platers paraded for the second race on the card and Crescent proved the best, leading from start to finish, but had to be hard ridden at the end to maintain her lead to beat Voogeria a neck. She in turn was a length and a half in front of Golden Pine. Walter H. Pearce delayed the start, as usual, but Dean got them off well, i Crescent was the one to show the way, with , Voogeria and Golden Pine in advance of the others. It was virtually a three-horse race from the start to the finish. Another top heavy favorite met reverse when Lady Fox scored by a head over Dr. Hickman in the third race at five and a hair t furlongs. Dr. Hickman was ten lengths in , front of Peter J., for second place. The start was a ragged one and Boganowski beat the gate at least two lengths and went right to running. Dr. Hickman was the one to forco the pace all the way but he never had a chance to overcome the advantage that the black daughter of Moss Fox secured at the start, winning by two lengths with the boy looking back. Eaton rode a much better race on Fred Kinney today than he did his last time out and he had no trouble beating the nine other platers that opposed him in the fifth race today. Isaman was the one to be second and , Victor M. third.
