MANNERS BEST IN HANDICAP Resumes Winning Streak at Thistle Down in Feature Event. Nell Kuhlman Is Beaten Only a Head and Flo M. Finishes Third Ogee Is Winner Over Alike Reynolds. CLEVELAND, Ohio, Aug. 9. J. H. Down-ings Manners registered his sixth victory in his last seven starts and his second success, of this meeting, when he was returned winner of the Hollenden Hotel Handicap, fourth and principal offering of this afternoons program. W. F. Lutz Nell Kuhlman raced to second place, with R. Barnetts Flo M. third. Manners took command early, followed by Flo M. and Inferno Lad. This order was held to the stretch head, where Nell Kuhlman raced into third place, replacing Inferno Lad. A furlong out Manners drew away into an easy lead and Nell Kuhlman continued going gamely on the extreme outside, but in the best of the going. At the end Manners was tiring, swerved over to the inside and barely lasted to score a head victory over the Lutz colorbearer. Flo M. also finished tiring and was hard pressed to save the minor award from the strongly finishing Standout. Over a heavy track the racing was contested. The weather, although cloudy at times, was pleasant and the attendance of average midweek proportions. The races were mostly all well filled and the sport provided was interesting. Chlo Boy, at home in the going, proved to be much the best in the initial dash, rewarding those who established him as. the public choice. From a slow beginning, he closed an immense gap, came extremely wide during the last quarter mile and won going away. Alamae raced June Bourbon, Free Helen and Anne Arundel into defeat and enjoyed a safe margin over the others. Lucky Prospero gained steadily to race into third place handily. Jockey L. Wilson sent Ogee into the lead rounding the far turn in the second race, and he enjoyed a comfortable lead all through the stretch. After racing close up from the start, Mike Reynolds retained the second award. Away last, Tryabit closed a big gap to nose out Ponipeia and Seths Queen for third in last stride. Adorland, skilfully handled by the promising jockey W. Hanka, led for the entire trip of the third race and eventually won with much to spare. The finish for second was more exciting, with King Halma just lasting to save that portion of the purse from Rain or Shine. G. "Buddy" Wingfield will remain here until the conclusion of the Thistle Down meeting, departing for Fairmount September 5. William Snyder will act for Wing-field at St Louis until he arrives.
