Bradleys Toney scored his second consecutive victory since his transfer to the S. N. Holman stable and it marked his third straight success in as many starts, when he won in a sensational duel with Postillion in the fourth race. Brad-lays Toney had to be much the best in the race to win. He was away tardily with the leaders far in advance of him. He continued to follow in last place for the first three-eighths, but thereafter moved througn past opponents with dispatch and drawing level with the leader, Postillion, an eighth out began a strenuous duel which culminated in his getting the verdict by a nose. Postillion from a fast beginning and displaying high speed moved promptly into a good Ieau and disposed readily of his earliest followers but he was not good enough for Bradleys Toney though he gave him a game battle all during the final drive. Batter Up showed a good performance to land In third place. This race was the outstanding attraction of a somewhat ordinary offering but it well rewarded the big crowd that was again on hand to view the sport for their journey to the picturesque Milldale track. Ideal weather was the order and the track likewise was in perfect condition. Most of the races resulted in close finishes and elicited considerable enthusiasm. E. R. Bradleys Brown Sugar had- to be much the best in the sixth race to overcome all the handicaps he had to suffer during the race and at the post where an assistant starter tardily released him afer the barrier had been raised. It caused him to be away slowly and he immediately got into trouble when others in the field came across and forced him back. He moved up determinedly but was forced wide by The Badger. He drew out ultimately in the last eighth to win with much in reserve. The Badger, hard ridden, just lasted to outstay his stable companion, Dr. A. L. Biggs. The five starters in the third race were objects of considerable betting atention with Firetoma a ruling favorite, but he failed to get a part of the purse, Brunnell, carrying the colors of M. Shapoff, winning handily from Fretwell with Llewellyn in third place. Brunells victory was somewhat of a surprise. The former E. R. Bradley castoff was supposed to be outclassed particularly with 115 pounds up and the diminutive Griffin as his pilot Brunell raced better for Griffin than he has for some of the star jockeys that previously rode him and he came around the leaders with a rush at the stretch to win well under restraint Firetoma after Continued on sixteenth page.

Queen Charming in the fourth race had little difficulty disposing of her opponents. She was a pronounced favorite and never gave her supporters much concern for she took the lead immediately after tho start and led thereafter for the entire way. Colonel Wagner was the runner up throughout and was easily best of tho others. Billy Klair, an outsider, finished in third place. The opening dash brought an outstanding surprise when Frank Gailor, grouped with others in the field, won with consumate ease from Our Option with the favorite, Watchful, in third place. The winner accompanied Queen Bess, the early leader, closely and took command when the latter tired, maintaining a fast pace to the end and holding Our Option safe all during the last eighth. Watchful made a game effort in the stretch but was unequal to wearing down the others. Another favorite was bowled over in the second race, engaging a dozen youngsters when King Nadi failed to get a part of the purse. This contest went to Brier Hill which won in runaway style. The duel for second place was a splendid one with Gaff-ney just managing to get it by a nose from Fairy Master. The winner was in command for the entire way with King Nadi and Gaf fney pursuing him closely. The concluding race was won by Colored Boy which performing in his best style had no difficulty leading the others in the fiela by as big a margin as his rider elected. Fan-toehe, after overcoming intereference, outstayed Mayor Carrel for second place. There was extensive backing for Miss Mazie but she was clear out of it after tho half milo. She was claimed for ,500 by M. Shapoff, whose Hoy made a good showing in the race though failing to get a part of the purse. F. A. Forsythe, Kentucky breeder and who has an interest in some of the horses that J. O. Whitlow is training arrived Thursday and will remain until after the running ot tho International special.
