COADY DEFEATS DANDY DAN Changes Luck of Choice Players by Winning Third at Dade. Money Wild Carries Geary Colors to Victory in Filly Race-Track Muddy and Weather Cooler. HENDERSON, Ky,. Aug. 26. A muddy track, resulting from hard rains during the night and morning, and the most pleasant afternoon of the week made up conditions under which the racing at Dade Park was held this afternoon. Again the sport was provided by the cheaper grade racers, and in most instances, large fields paraded. The cooler weather that followed the rains came as a great relief to enthusiasts, and there was a surprisingly large outpouring of the devotees to witness the muddy track contest. The smallest field of the day faced starter William Hamilton, for the three-quarters third race, only five accepting the issue, and it brought one of the more popular results in the score of William Weants Coady. Ridden by the popular Gilbert Elston and favorite in the betting, the Weant colt had no easy task defeating Dandy Dan, but ultimately came through for his big following, and it was the first break for the form players, outsiders getting home in the previous two numbers. Coady wore down Dandy Dan after reaching the stretch, where the latter faltered as he struggled to the wire over the most trying inner part of the track, and had a winning advantage of a length and one-quarter. Eight lengths back of Dandy Dan came Wingo, and he was far in the van of Noble Wrack and Uncle Martin. The second race, also for maiden juvenile fillies, at five furlongs, saw the colors of T. C. Geary of Lexington in triumph when Money Wild bore them home far in front of the nine others. Money Wild dominated the running at all times, and the finish found her running five lengths before Eva Jane, the favorite. Fredreanna B., a rank outsider, was good enough to account for the smallest part of the purse. Interference knocked Migosh out of the running, and Remuneration failed badly in the going. Ten maiden two-year-old fillies comprised the field in the opening contest at five furlongs and the running brought a mild surprise in the victory of Tangalo. Worthys Pride, also neglected in the betting, was second and Proud Princess, which shared favoritism with Moms Polly, was third. James T. Looney, who has several horses here in charge of Johnny Shea, was an arrival from Springfield, Ohio, where he made his famous Burgoo for the spectators at a livestock exhibition. Looneys colors were carried by his two-year-old II Trovatore in the fifth race.
