FOUR START IN HEADLINER Slipper King Romps to Victory at Mount Royal — Stirring Contests Thrill Fans. MONTREAL, Que., June 27.— With the withdrawals of the home-breds, Sir Michael and Leo D., four were left to contest the running of the Dominion Square Handicap, feature of the twelfth day at the Mount Royal course. Slipper King, four-year-old son of Infinite and lolanthe, recently acquired by E. Seguin, local patron, raced to an easy triumph when he led L. Boyers Tee Off home. Three and one-half lengths farther back came Learoyd, star of the M. Macey, Jr., barn, twenty-five lengths before the remaining starter, Airway. Although the field was the smallest of the meeting much interest was shown in the starting of Slipper King over the distance of ground for the first time since arriving from Rockingham Park, where Seguin claimed him. The winner ran the distance in 1:58%, over a heavy holding track, but was at no time fully extended. A good crowd was on hand for the various events in which keen contests developed. The veteran M. Mitchell was astride Slipper King and got him away fast, and drawing into the lead at once, rated the son of Infinite along in the lead under steady restraint, and it was not until the stretch was reached that Mitchell shook him up and increasing his advantage, took him under a strong hold as the finish line was reached. Tee Off raced in second place throughout, made repeated attempts to reach the winner but was not good enough. Learoyd raced evenly in third place throughout. Airway was always in last place, and trailed the field far back throughout. A
