BOWIES MONDAY CARD Aero Handicap and Autumn Purse the Chief Offerings. First Falls to Bill OFlynn, Latter , j . to Sumpter Suburban Beats ; . Tjandi Narrowly. . BOWIE, Md., Nov. 21. The Aero Handicap at. tliree-quarters, for all ages, and the Autumn Purse, for two-year-olds, at one . mile, were the best offerings at Bowie this afternoon. In the running of the three-quarters dash, Bill OFlynn, racing for Mrs. M. . E. Williams, proved an easy winner over . Bigheart. Comixa was third. Heeltaps, from the E. F. Whitney Stable, completed the field. There was no time lost at the barrier and when the start came Barnes rushed Bill OFlynn to the front. Heeltaps went along after him, while Bigheart was leading Comixa. The latter was slow to find her stride, and was outrun. There was no change in the running positions until the final eighth was reached. Barnes went wide with Bill OFlynn turning . for home while Heeltaps followed him out and Bigheart and Comixa clung to the inner rail. Through the final eighth Bill OFlynn held his opponents safe with no effort, while Bigheart and Comixa quickly disposed of the tiring Heeltaps. Through the final eightn Bigheart readily outlasted Comixa. Bill OFlynn was a stoutly supported second choice. VASTLY 131 PROVED It ACE. ; Bobert Odoms Sumpter showed vastly im- proved form over his previous race and as a result was an easy winner of the Autumn , Purse. At the end of the mile journey he was under the stoutest restraint and led All Gone to the finish by five lengths. Danby was third. The winner followed the others rounding he first turn, but when settled on the back stretch came with a rush and from then on never left the ultimate result in doubt. All Gone showed a good performance all the way and, after saving ground at th-j stretch turn, held Danby safe in the final eighth. The latter made his bid rounding the far turn, but Lang was unable to do him justice through the going. The winner was accorded stout support. Bosamond graduated from the maiden ranks when she was winner of the opening race of the afternoon at three-quarters for two-year-old maiden fillies. Buena Vista was the one to race to second place, Avliile Wish I Win was third. There was no delay at the post, and when the start came Flivver, Moonflower and Out of Sight were the ones to show the way, while Bosamond was racing . in the middle of the field. Through the stretch there was an unusual changing of positions and for a brief period it appeared as if any of the leaders would take down the winners share of the purse. However, Bosamond proved best and outgamed Buena Vista in the closing strides. The latter jumped into: the lead a few yards from the finish, only to weaken badly. LADY AUDREY EASILY. W. V. Dwyers Lady Audrey, grouped in the field and ridden by jockey L. McAtee, was an easy winner of the second race at six and a half furlongs. S. Ross Apex raced to second place, while J. Meaneys Lucky Strike was third. The winner raced forwardly all the way and, entering the stretch, came to the outside of the leaders, wore them down without any effort and through the final eighth drew away into an easy lead. Apex showed a flash of his old form during the early part but tired badly after disposing of Lucky Strike. Thirteen platers of a cheap grade faced the starter in the third race, at a mile and a sixteenth, and the winner turned up in J. T. Readys Suburban in a drive from Tjandi, while Mystic was third. Suburban was ridden by Breuning and, rounding the far turn, was rushed to the front and drew into a safe lead, but tired badly through the stretch, and was doing his best at the end to stall off Tjandi. The latter was a forward factor throughout and was wearing the winner down. Mystic closed with a belated rush from a slow beginning. Rock Pocket, racing for the Salubria Stable, was an easy winner of the sixth race, which engaged six platers at a mile and three-sixteenths. Sylvan Spring raced to second place while Red Wine was third. The winner was ridden by jockey E. Barnes, which completed a double for him. Rock Pocket followed the pace- under steady restraint and went to the front in the stretch. Sylvan Spring, after setting the pace, outlasted the fast finishing Red Wine at the end.
