LOGWOOD WINS AT MONTREAL Foisy Home -Bred Surprises in Neck Victory Over Morvim at Blue Bonnets Track Fast. MONTREAL, Que., May 28. The Palace Theater Cup Claiming Purse, the feature of the card for the fourth day of racing at the Blue Bonnets course of the Montreal Jockey Club, furnished a mild surprise when G. Foisy"s Logwood, home-bred so nof Cudgel and Lotto, drove to a neck victory over the highly regarded Morvim, from the stable of W. Lewis. Mrs. C. A. Nihcols Sorcery was third, two and a half lengths back, and the same distance before the Crescent Stables Errant Lady. A crowd of good proportions was on hand for the sport, which was staged over a fast track, under dull skies. The weather had turned somewhat cooler after the rains of the early morning, which only served to settle the track. The field was away in good order, and Errant Lady set the pace in the early stages, closely followed by the ultimate winner, Logwood, and Wilfred Mac, with Morvim in fourth place. On the turn Morvim moved into command on the outside and enjoyed a length lead at the head of the stretch. Here Sorcery moved to the leaders and, saving ground on the inside, moved into third place in the run down the stretch. Morvim drew away, but Fenney sent Logwood to the outside and, finishing fast, wore the pacemaker down and had a neck advantage as the finish line was crossed. Sorcery held on to third place and had no difficulty holding the remainder safe, i. Mrs. George Ttothky presented a cup to the winning owner, a gift of the Palace Theater management. O. Pages Pittston made a show of his opponents in the second event another five I and one-half furlongs dash, made up of seven more home-breds, when he galloped to a three-length victory over A. Caseys I Ville Crest, a cast-off of the Erindale Stable of Toronto. Linesman, from the stable of G. Vogel and also a former member of the powerful McLaughlin stable, was third, before Miss Johnston.
