Close and exciting finishes featured the concluding days racing at Brooklyn Park this afternoon. Ideal conditions prevailed and a record attendance for this course, six thousand, witnessed the sport. Finishing almost in perfect alignment, Ege, End Man and Marie Dattner struggled past the finish line in this order. Ege getting up in the last few strides to capture the Au Re-voir Handicap. It was only after a stirring stretch drive that Seths Ak-Sar-Ben earned a head decision over Jewell V. D. and Hermidale in the Great Lakes Purse, the fifth race, which attracted the best field of distance performers at this course. This marked the fourth consecutive victory for the B. F. McClain representative and he came from behind in the last quarter to accomplish the feat. A. S. Eastman scored a double when Mal-lowmot and Eye Bright carried his colors to victory. Both were piloted by O. Pernia and won by narrow margins in driving finishes. Pernias riding was a feature, as he also had the mount on Ege, Black Deer and Rubien, which led practically throughout in their respective races. Sir Lawnfal and Brian Kent came from the rear during the last quarter to earn brackets. As a result of injuries sustained when he fell hero on Thursday, Heavy Artillery died last night. A. S. Eastman received word from trainer J. Everman that Hunzaf died at Latonia. Ky. yesterday. A special horse train of sixteen cars will leave hero tomorrow for Beulah Park.
