Salmons two-year-old Primrose was an easy winner of the Rainbow Handicap, which featured this afternoons card.. At the end Primrose had a wide margin over Miss Cerina, while Polly Wale was third. Eight of the ten fillies and mares named overnight answered the bugle call and Primrose was accorded the bulk of the support. The start gave her supporters no cause for dismay, for under steadying restraint she followed the fast pace established by Sun Lady and Miss Cerina and it was not until the far turn was reached that Pierce called upon her. She raced by the leaders with no effort and quickly drew into a safe lead. Miss Cerina raced prominently from the start and after disposing of Sun Lady stood off determined opposition from Polly Wale through the stretch and at the end had a good length advantage over the latter. Forest Flower appeared to start with the field but propped. UNSETTLED WEATIIEK. Cloudy weather conditions prevailed this afternoon but the crowd was well up to the standard. The racing despite the upsets furnished some good finishes. The running of the fourth race furnished an upset when Demurrage was winner in a drive from the Audley Farms Spanish Name, while P.. Hardins Sandrae was third. Bill Winfrey, the popular choice, was as good as left at the post. Zero Hour was the one to display the highest speed, while Demurrage and Sandrae were well up and Spanish Name racing in the middle of the band. Zero Hour lengthened his lead entering the stretch but through the final eighth collapsed and at the end quit badly, to finish in the ruck. Demurrage, under OHaras good riding, had a length advantage over Spanish Name, which in turn barely beat Sandrae for second place. The later came again after dropping back at the eighth post. The winner paid the .longest price of the afternoon. E. K. Brysons Gold Mount was an easy winner of the second race, which engaged thirteen platers at seven-eighths. Vulnad raced to second place, while Belcross was third. The winner was ridden by F. Stevens and, after racing Chief James into defeat, drew away into an easy lead and through the final sixteenth was under restraint. Vulnad began slowly but closed with a rush on the outside, while Belcross ran well all the way. The running of the third race resulted in a close finish when Picnic just lasted to gain a nose decision over Play On, while Hags was third. Picnic followed the early pace closely and, after disposing of the leaders round the far turn, drew into a brief lead However, through the final eighth Play On closed with a rush and finished going fast and would have won in another stride. Rags clcsd an immense gap to be third. FAENZA BEATS MODO. Jockey Weiners riding of Faenza was in direct contrast to that in his previous race and as a result he was up in the closing strides to beat Modo at the end of a mile and a sixteenth. Hyperion was a distant third. Faenza had plenty of speed and quickly drew into the lead. He was taken back of the pace which was cut out by Modo. Through the stretch he responded to urging and just got up. Hyperion, after following the others the first part, came with a rush. Maidens of all ages paraded for the running of the first race which was at a mile and seventy yards, and the winner turned up in Marshall Fields Enslaved, over Cardiff, while Zeebrugge was third. Mucli of the interest in the race was detracted when Zeebrugge began in a tangle and was far back in the first part. Had he begun with the leaders there might have been a different finish. Enslaved followed the pace under steady restraint for the greater part of the distance and it was not until into the stretch that Hudgins called upon him. He disposed of Cardiff, but to the end was Icept under pressure. Cardiff showed the way for the greater part of the distance, but tired badly. Zeebrugge, from his bad start, closed an immense gap and finished fast. Dr. Mitchell placed the firing irons to several horses this morning, among them being J. Arthurs Chick and T.. Edmonds Dr. Hanley. Mrs. A. Swenke claimed Vulnad from C. II. Thieriot for ?1,500. Six claims were filed for this plater.
