Track conditions were responsible for a program at Jefferson Parlr today much below the usual j Saturday standards and devoid of any out- j .standing feature. The entire program was made up of the claiming variety of races, j with a cheap grade of starters. j Improved weather conditions and clear! skies contributed toward the good attendance, j The racing was spirited on the whole and j several of the finishes close enough to suit the most exacting. Backers of favorites were again badly j astray in their judgment, the first- five; meeting defeat. Two stables furnished the five favorites. S. N. Ilolmans trio consist-j ihg of Carnarvon, Rubien and Pete the Scribe, the other pair, C. T. Worthington and Tan Son, represented W. M. Cain. j Tan Sons showing was particularly poor and his rider pulled him up before going half a mile. The jockeys explanation for his action was that he was afraid the horse was going to fall. The stewards began an inquiry after the race in regard to the horses poor showing. CtTE DOH AT LONG ODDS. Tan Son was in with a somewhat poor aggregation to race at a mile and seventy yards and II. G. Bedwclls Cote dOr, at long odds, was the victor, winning from- Cimarron, with Sea Court in third place. It was a lucky victory for Cote dOr, as Cimarron raced as if pounds the best. She was one of the laggards caused by a poor start and at one stage seemed hopelessly out of it. She closed an immense, gap, however, and was going faster than the winner at the end. Tan Son dropped completely out of it after the start and continued to fall back. He was claimed for ,000 by Mrs- A. Swerike. Ta first favorite to lead his opponents home was Yoshimi in the sixth race. He was accorded confident support and he made good decisively, wearing down Smart Guy to win with much in reserve. Little Ammie finished third. The disappointment of the race was Richelieu. He was favorite in the opening betting, but receded steadily thereafter. He was eliminated as a contender after going half a mile and finished the whipper-in of the field. The first three favorites were failures, the first two. Carnarvon and Rubien, coming out of the S. N. Holman Stable. Carnarvon landed in second place and Rubien finished third. The sport began with a short dash, in which C. T. Worthington, with Gerrity riding, was a favored one. He was never a factor, Shanghai racing in his best form and away fcrwardly, winning as his rider pleased from Valentino, with Charlnat in third place. Peter Decoy alternated with Charlnat as the pacemaker, but Shanghai, coining with a rush at the stretch turn, moved" by the pair fast and won as his rider pleased. CARNARVON DISAPPOINTS. Carnarvon seemed to have his race won after he headed Proceeds, for he took a long lead and straightened in the stretch, he was still much to the good, but he suddenly began shortening his stride, and it was no effort near the end for Prima Donna to pass him and be winner in handy style. Carnarvon, tinder hard urging, succeeded in outstaying Warren Lynch for second place. Proceeds tired badly in the last sixteenth. The third race found Rubien and Peter Piper taking a long lead over the others in the first half mile, but when it came to the actual hard racing both began tiring steadily, and it left Remnant to come on and win with much in reserve, over Maude Harvey. Rubien, though tiring badly, had just enough Continued on sixteenth pase. OWNER ANDJRAINER Continued from first page. in reserve to hold on to the shorter portion of the- purse. W. M. Cains Elemental furnished the upset of the fifth race in which she beat Julia M.t in handy fashion, with the J. Arthur filly having no difficulty leading l.ady. Boss in second place and Pete the Scribe following. 1ete the Scribe was accorded heavy backing just before post time, but lie showed poor, form after a slow send-off and a weak ride. A somewhat better class of platers met in the final race and it furnished a spectacular contest, the field of six starters racing compactly for most of the way and in the diive that followed. Colored Boy managed .to outstay Jjlewellyn. Dorius, after appearing to have a winning chance began tiring in the last eighth, .but retained third place. Colored Boy was an equal favorite with Llewellyn and both absorbed most of the betting Pllcntion of the race. Dorius was claimed by M. J. Cooke at a cost of ,000
