Cloudy and unsettled weather prevailed at Empire City this afternoon but a crowd of large proportions journeyed to the course, Racing was of a spirited nature and the track was fast. Master Billy, racing for J. L. Lurding, was winner of the first race, which engagea a band of seventeen two-year-olds. James Butlers Jibe was the one to finish second while Toppanite, from the Joaquin stable, secured third place. The winner was ridden by J. Wallace and followed the pacemaker closely during the early stages, to assume the lead in the final eighth to win going clear. There was some excitement caused prior to the start, when Toppanite got the best of jockey G. Hooper, and ran away a quarter of a mile the reverse way of the track at high speed. When the start was finally managed Toppanite showed the way, pressed by Roiville, and Master Billy, with the others closely bunched. Rounding the stretch turn there was a general closing up and Toppanite was the first to tiro, and gave way to Master Billy. The latter held Jibe safe to the end. Dimmesdale, following a long absence from the races, returned this afternoon and carried the colors of D. Buchanan to an easy victory in the running of the second race, which was for three-year-olds and over under claiming conditions over the short three-quarters course. J. A. Coburns Buck Pond finished second, while W. J. Boths Pat Casey was third. The winner was ridden by jockey F. Weiner and was a forward factor all the way and when well settled in the stretch, disposed of Buck Pond and won with speed in reserve. Pat Casey came from far back to finish third. Reprisal fell lame in the running and finished far back. The running of the Algonquin handicap, which was originally carded at one mile, was increased to a mile and seventy yards and the winner resulted in the Swingalong Stables Nancy Langhorne, ridden by jockey H. Thomas, in a drive from H. M. Howards Nose Dive, with R. T. Wilsons Wampee third. The start was marred when Missionary failed to leave with the others and Callahan sent Nose Dive to the front and he drew away into a brief lead. Nancy Langhorne went after him, while Buxton had the meantime rushed Missionary into contention. However, the move took considerable from his mount, and when the test came he faltered badly. Rounding the stretch turn Nose Dive held the command by a narrow margin, while Nancy Langhorne was gaining rapidly. Wampee had saved ground at the turn and loomed up dangerously. However, through the stretch Nose Dive began to tire and Thomas sent Nancy Langhorne along to victory. Wampee was blocked at the eighth post and Marinelli was forced to take the outside. Crack ODawn, racing for J. McMillen, furnished a surprise when he was winner of the fifth race at one mile and seventy yards, defeating W. R. Coes Blvina, while C. H. Thieriots Vulnad was third. Burke, astride the winner, had his mount away in motion, and he made every use of his early speed to steal away unto a long lead, which stood him in good stead at the end to stall off the determined challenge of Elvina. Vulnad closed a big gap to be third. i 1 1 l ; , t , - r 1 r 1 t r - e a e ! s S V S e " e in n l"
