CONSOLATION PRIZE Principal Offering of Bowies Friday Afternoon Program. Winner Turns Up in Lieutenant II. With Noel and Flagship Second and Third. BOWIE, Md., Nov. 28. For a feature at Bowie this afternoon the offering was the Consolation Handicap, over the mile and seventy yards distance. As the name would suggest, it was for non-winners during the meeting. R. E. Potts Lieutenant II. proved easily the best of the company and forcing all the pace, was at no time seriously threatened, leading home Edward B. McLeans sprinter, Noel, while Walter M. Jef-fords two-year-old, Flagship, saved third from E. K. Brysons Setting Sun. The others were R. T. Wilsons Wampee, James Arthurs Leonard G., and J. F. Richardsons Fraternity II. It was a delightful day for the sport and though the attendance was much smaller than the gathering of Thanksgiving Day, it was a goodly crowd that was present. The racing was first class and the track was at its best. Little time was lost at the post for the Consolation and when the barrier rose Weiner at once went into the lead, with Lieutenant II., and after taking his front position he took a snug hold of his head and had him under restraint without surrendering that place. Leonard G. and Noel were the ones to go after him, as was expected, for they were the sprinters of the company. Flagship was in fourth place, while Setting Sun, after beginning slowly, and Fraternity II. were distant followers. All through the back stretch Lieutenant II. had no trouble keeping to his command, but Leonard G. found the task too much and he tired, though Noel stuck to the pace resolutely without threatening the leader. As . Leonard G. gave way Flagship improved his position, and Setting Sun began to move up. but there was no chance to catch the Potts gelding. At the end Lieutenant II. was a length and a half to the good, with something in reserve, while Noel beat Flagship by two lengths for second place, with the others rather strung out and Leonard G. last of them all. RANCOCAS CAST-OFF WINS. Cardiff, the cast-off from the Rancocas Stable that now races for J. W. Young, graduated from the maiden class rather handily in the opening race. This was a three-quarters dash for the two-year-olds. The Triple Springs Farms Harry Baker raced to second place and third was the portion of B. Moores Transformer, when he beat home the tiring Taudlane. Cardiff ran good enough to take the lead at the rise of the barrier and he never left the result in doubt. Harry Baker, after getting away well, had to be urged hard to keep up in the early stages, but saved ground on the stretch turn and finished with good courage under a long drive. Taudlane, as usual, was quitting at the end and Transformer readily outfin-ished him. Flivver was one that was away so badly as to have no chance. The claiming dash over the six and a half furlongs distance for all ages came second on the card and it fell to C. P. Winfreys Camouflage. Apex, from the stable of Sam Ross, just beat W. V. Dwyers Lady Audrey for second place and John Meaneys Lucky Strike was rather a distant fourth. Lady Boss and Appellate were the ones to cut out most of the running, but they did not get far away from Camouflage. Lady Audrey was in close quarters leaving the barrier and she met with more than her share of early interference. Lady Boss was all through when the stretch was reached and there it was that the winner went into command. McAtee saved ground on the stretch turn with Lady Audrey but it put the filly in the deep going and she just, failed to catch Apex in the run home. CLAVICHORD TRIUMPHS. A three-quarters dash for cheap two-year-olds was the third offering, and the Joaquin Stable furnished the winner in Clavichord. M. Bernhardts Young April saved second place and F. Grossmans Peter Paul just lasted to be third from E. P. Summerfields Night Shade. Early in the race Peter Paul found his way through on the inside and he was the one to show the way until he turned for home. The others followed the leader in a rather close bunch and when Peter Paul began to weaken there was a general closing up back of him. In the last sixteenth Clavichord found her way into command to come away and win by a couple of lengths. Young April outfinished the others and Peter Paul was tiring so rapidly that he only outlasted Young April by a nose for third place. W. Rosens Eagerness was winner of the mile and seventy yards of the fifth race when she defeated B. B. Williams Marsdale. with P. G. Christophers Procyon saving third Continued on sixteenth page. , CONSOLATION PiZE Continued from first page. from Mrs. A. Swenkes Al Boyd.
