They were lucky In their deduction for Rothermel nearly caused an upset in their calculations. Glenister II. raced below his previous showing for he quit badly after going three-quarters. Up to his retirement he led Buck but only by a short margin and he gave way readily when the latter moved by him. Buck seemed an easy winner when he reached the stretch, but Rothermel suddenly finished with great speed and responding gamely almost overhauled Buck. Another Bradley representative figured extensively In the afternoons racing as a result of her failure. The offender was the crack Blue Warbler, which only recently was held to be the outstanding filly in the country, if not the best three-year-old. Her lustre began dimming when she failed badly in the Kentucky Oaks. She was held to be the best of the band she met at three-quarters that served as the second feature of the card, but again she failed ignominously. MEETS 3IFCII INTERFERENCE. Her defeat and failure to get a portion of the purse could be charged to the interference that she suffered, being almost thrown in the first quarter and forced from a con-t ending position to last place. Kitty Pat with a clear course at the time benefitted for she moved to the non-staying Cross Village with case before half a mile . was reached and she won thereafter as her rider pleased. The battle for second place was a spirited one with Slow and TCasy getting the verdict from Cream Puff.

Camden colors were conspicuous during the afternoon, for In addition to Kitty Pats victory. Spices made it a double and nothcrme! finished in second place and Dark rtrantom third. The sixth race e ran tod added incident when Helens Babe fell heavily at the post as a result of her fractiousness and Frances Louise unseated Fronk. Both riders remounted and rode in the race. Helens Babe put up a sparkling effort considering her actions at the post and she battled out strenuously during the stretch with Florence Mills hut failed by a neck of winning. There was considerable activity for Indianapolis in this race and she might have been a factor but for Connellys act of taking hack sharply when she was in contending p sition. The rider seemingly tried to anticipate that he would be cut off by Taylor on Helens Babe, FIELD HORSES IN FnONT. The third race brought out an ordinary band to race at a mile and three-sixteenths and it furnished an upset by the victory of Mary Agnes grouped with the ohers in the field.
