POOR START BEATS FAVORITE » Indicative Away in Tangle and Race Is Won by Anna Adelia. * Clous Racer Gains Rapidly After Finding Clear Passage and Finishes Second in Bainbridge Feature Event. ♦ GEAUGA LAKE, Ohio, May 22.— Anna Adelia carried the colors of H. Herendeen to an easy victory in the Great Lakes Purse, the fifth and principal offering at Bainbridge Park this afternoon. Jockey D. Dickson, alert at the post, rushed the winner into the lead at once and never left the issue in serious doubt. Apprentice G. Pruchniki left the starting point with Indicative, the favorite, in a tangle and was far back in the early stages. Fortunate in securing a clear passage on the inside after rounding the far turn, Indicative raced into second position, which he easily retained through the stretch. Coming from far back, Lutie Schuster outlasted the others after Jack Howe weakened for third. The racing was staged under ideal conditions and the attendance was of fair proportions for an off day. The "Daily Double" on the second and third races which has always been popular at this course returned a rather profitable dividend of 20.40 for . Form players were elated when Mrs. C. Pomeroys Customer scored rather easily in the curtain raiser, a four and one-half furlongs race for two-year-olds. The Mere Play filly, on account of her good performances at Aurora, was given a strong play in the mutuels, and she justified all the confidence reposed in her by wearing down Bibboo, the only one which had early speed to match that of the Pomeroy starter, and drawing away near the finish. Bibboo had no trouble holding on to second place, although Grand Flight closed with good speed and was gaining some ground. Fair Grade ran an even race, while Blushing Girl and Showcase tired. Quiet Chat, a three-year-old gelded son of Chatterton, took the players by surprise when he raced down in front of a large field of sprinters in the second race, at three-quarters of a mile.

Pat C, racing on the outside, finished fast in second place. Principio made a bold challenge but tired near the end. Transmit also ran well in the early part. Mrs. M. Riesers Falsehood was the one to graduate in the running of the third race, at six furlongs, for maidens. He was a fit horse and after breaking away and running an eighth of a mile before the start was effected, he was not long in reaching the lead in the contest and won as his rider pleased. Mi Cara was a keen contender but she went wide on the turn into the stretch. Flying Giblon moved up on the outside in the stretch and was good enough to beat out Fair Billy, which also closed fast. Toronto tired. Blue John and Mr. Vestris contested the leadership closely lapped to the stretch in the fourth race. Harry Hieover then challenged and raced over the tiring leaders in the final furlong to win easily. Blue John barely saved the place from St. Jim, which closed a big gap in the last quarter of a mile. ♦
