HAWTHORNE KESUITS JESUITS KESUITSLittle Little could be expected of racing at Haw ¬ thorne thorn yesterday because the track was deep in mud The beat the horses could do was to remind one of the speed of an auxiliary post office clerk and form was knocked to the winds windsThe winds The betting race of the day was the handicap for which Cant Dance went to the post at 7 to 1 got to the front after shaking off Sardonic in the first threeeighths and won hugging the in ¬ side fence with J Eeiff Eiffel whipping like mad al ¬ though apparently without occasion for Eddie Jones running on the extreme outside of the track was obviously beaten midway the straight The last named horse was always the contender Sardonic only ran threequarters treasurers before collapsing entirely and Morte Mote Fonse Fosse until then fourth finished a bad third Secre Sere ¬ tary tarry Kuhl Kohl has long been noted as a handicap per likely to make the longest shot the winner as here was a case in point The rain however was on his side The day overhead could not be beaten the air was warm and balmy and the crowd much larger than on Monday The talk of the race track war seems to have died the death of the Michigan carpet bug which when investigated turns to powder although when rampant the insect works irreparable injury injuryNora injury Nora Ives Wives and Barabbas Arabians led to the home stretch the others in a bunch three open lengths behind Pay the Fiddler was left at the post At the last eighth it looked as if any one of nine might win as the heavy going stopped the best and did not impede the worst Finally Mr Johnson won Cheval dOr doer second Old Fox third Flirtation was close up upTte upstate Tte Tate public knew what to expect as a notice was posted to the effect that Meddler and Gov Go ¬ ernor senor Sheehan would not be allowed to delay t he starts Nevertheless Meddler and Refugee another bad actor were made equal favorites Eedskin Redskin formerly a horse of high class but recently sold for 125 reveled in the going which did not set afire his shaky legs and getting off in the front rank although outrun for a half by Refugee came to the front on the inside rails at the turn for home and won easily with his jockey L Reiff Riff looking back Treopia Tropical off fifth beat Sir Hobart for the place The latter was never worse than fourth or better than third Eleanor Holmes off third ran to second position then was fourth into the straight and so finished Refugee died away at the last eighth and finished in the ruck truck the leader of which was Nat P several lengths behind Sir Hobart Refugee it was and not Meddler who refused for a time to join his horses horsesMolo horses Molo Moo created a stir both in the betting ring and later on He opening at 3 to 1 was knocked to 11 to 5 then advanced to 3 to 1 and at the post jumped to 5 to 1 At the barrier he refused to break and acted like a horse full of dope Once he grabbed the netting in his teeth chewed it viciously and then dodged under it When straightened away however he ran true and always second to Heigh High Ho ran past his only competitor at the last six e pth path winning handily Paul Kauvar Kava was a bad third For fiveeighths firefights he was headed by Vice Regal The others were beaten off Amanda finished at the last eighth eighthT eighth T i Icva Inca plunger was down good and hard on
