THIRD STRAIGHT VCTIORY » The Heathen Again Triumphs in Windsors Main Attraction. « Pierce Colorbcarer Makes Every Post Winning One in Free Press Handicap — Care Free Fails In Third Race. WINDSOR, Ont., June 20.— The Heathen, which races for S. H. Pierce, scored his third straight triumph when he raced to an easy victory in the Free Press Handicap, at five and a half furlongs, the feature race on todays program at the Windsor Jockey Club course. M. H. Pons Maurice, which raced in second place from the start, finished in that position, with Brilliant, from the Mrs. W. J. Potter stable, third, a neck back of Maurice. Blind Cast, the only other starter, was beaten off. The Fierce colorbearer, a rapid beginner, quickly opened up a good lead and raced along in front. He was put under pressure in the stretch and, continuing with good courage, was not menaced at the end. Maurice, after following the winner closest from the start, continued gamely under punishment, but was doing his best to hold Brilliant safe. The latter came to the outside in the stretch after beginning slowly and was going the fastest of all at the end. A return of fair weather brought out another large crowd and the track, though still heavy, was drying out rapidly under strong sunshine. F. Silas, clever apprentice, who is riding in good form at the present time, scored another winner when he piloted Mrs. C. A. Muirs Collar Ada Pose to an easy victory in the, three-quarters dash that opened the days program and which attracted seven of the cheaper grade of Canadian-breds. Fear Not, from the stable of W. Eiswirth, was the one that raced to second place, while the locally owned Miss Gaiety II., which races for Mrs. E. Glassco, was an easy third over J. C. Fletchers Me Too. The winner began fast and sprinted into an easy lead and simply galloped along in front until she had a five lengths advantage over Fear Not at the end. A. G. Dunlaps Sucrose annexed the five and a half furlongs of the second race in handy fashion over Uptide, which races in the interests of P. T. Chinn, with P. An-gelinos Gussie P. getting the third. Bidden by McGinnis, Sucrose was rated in near attendance of Uptide, and Gussie P., which was out in front, setting the pace. He closed up with a rush nearing the stretch while saving ground and drew out all through the last sixteenth. Uptide quickly went to the front, disposed of Gussie P., came wide into the stretch and, though under hard urging, could not keep up with the winner. Gussie P., though tiring at the end, was never threatened for third place. Master Sweep accounted for the third race, scoring in a drive from the pacemaker Little Broom, while two lengths further back came Torrence. The winner was reserved off the pace, moved into the lead when called on and was drawing clear as the finish was reached. Little Broom, after seting all the pace, held on with great gameness under pressure, but was unable to stave of the winners closing challenge. Care Free was installed the favorite in the race, but, after being rated along in second place, failed to respond to his riders call and sulked all during the stretch run. Pal Tarrs Highland Fling, after many attempts, finally graduated from the ranks of the maiden two-year-olds when she led home ten others of the same age over the four and a half furlongs of the fourth race. It also allowed P. Silas to round out a double for the afternoon, he having previously scored with Collar Ada Pose in the opening dash.
