Jacob Fendrick .was the successful man in the draw. There were five claims for Baby Gar in the first race and "W. B. Mitchell was the lucky man in the draw. The War Cloud filly raced under the silks of the Lilane Stable and was valued at ,000. Jolly Roger, which carried 170 pounds to victory in the Hayside Steeplechase last Thursday, has been given an impose of 175 pounds for the Wheatlys Steeplechase, to be run Wednesday. Jolly Roger is coming to be regarded as another Good and Plenty. With only three starters and Britannic ridden so poorly by Simms that he was suspended for the remainder of the meeting and his case referred to the National Steeplechase and Hunts Association, the steeplechase left much to be desired. The reason for the small field was that so many of the good jumpers had been shipped to Massachusetts for the Brookline and Framingham meetings.
