MUDDYAll All the races on Mondays card at Exposi ¬ tion Park were under claiming conditions with the exception of the fourth and were contested over a track that was decidedly muddy owing to the rain which had visited the course during the past few days daysThe The riding of the diminutive apprentice jockey L Jenner was one of the outstanding features of the afternoons racing when the lad scored a triple victory Tenners third winner came with the running of the fourth race on C Houbres Dimple Dunkie which triumphed over the small band in a dash of threequarters W S Kilmers Sun Fairy took down the second place after leading until nearing the last seventy yards of the stretch run from where she was outfinished easily by the ultimate winner with the Joliet Stables Captain Donan racing in

for the first halfmile Fighting Cook pursued the early leader closely to the final turn and then taking the lead was never headed under her alert rider Senor outfinishing Charcoal narrowly for second
