ENCHANTERS GOOD RACE The patons patrons of Harlem yesterday showed upon their faces and in their actions marked discomfort The man who had worn his winter overcoat was too warm he of the summer suit was too cool It was alone the citizen rigged twixt and between that was comfortable The showers of the early morning wrought no injury to the track and only sixteen per cent of the seventyeight seventy entries were scratched After the all weighed out bell for the first race had sounded there was another jingle and the order came to do no business W J Speirs Piers was called for and later the announcement came Put Rutter Ruttier on Shinfann Schumann Bloss Loss had been posted to ride this horse and Sheppard Boardman Barman but now Bloss Loss was posted on Sinks colt coltFontainebleu confrontational Fontainebleu Containable was made favorite of the seven ¬ teen starters for the opening race at 8 to 5 Mr Rodegap Bodega said I dont don't know what may happen It looks HS if I had had everything and for Fontainebleus Containable last start I paid 50 he was left at the post in a stake race won by Jinks at Hawthorne but maybe something new will hit me today although in Fontainebleu Containable Her Favor and Ferroll Ferro they say I have a good chance to win three races racesAli races Ali interest in th ° first race was subordinated to that manifested when jockey Al Shaw J ri Campbells Campbell rider was thrown by the stumbling of Calchas Caliches and rolling over many times stiff ¬ ened denned out and lay on his back as if dead The Accident happened just inside the last eighth post and was due to no interference whatever the horse being nar nard the rear Shaw fell squarely on his head and as his neck doubled over his escape from instant death is miracu miraculous ¬ lous locus When picked up by George Withers fifty men aiding to carry him to the jockey room the boys hands were seen to move and everybody breathed easier Shaw when exam ined dined was found tu be hurt scarcely at all bar a severe shaking up He was to have ridden El Mido Midol in the third race but Everett was tubsti Tustin tuted touted tutedFontaineblen Fontaineblen Containable off in front was nnt nt headed and won in a drive from Nellie Fo o who was always as good as third Pat Clebuine Claudine finished third after racing the winner head and head at the last eighth Hi Kollar Kola ran prominently for Learly Clearly threeeighths of a mile No others were dangerous at any time Shinfane Shinbone delayed the start finally got away badly and could never get up Red upRed umpired Gidd Giddy dodged off in front to a fair start in the second race attended by Heigh High Ho and Her Favor At the half the latter had taken second place and J Reiff Riff on Heigh High Ho from this on seemed to get tangled up on the inside fence so that the favorite finished just back of Muskadine Misaimed who got the third money Her Favor gained the lead on the upper turn and opened a gap of three lengths Red Gidd Giddy died off as usual and Branch alwajs always as good as fourth was alone left to do battle for first honors At the final sixteenth Her Favor was sent to the whip seeing which Hothersall Others on Branch took a strong hold evidently thinking to steady bis bias horse and wait for the leader to quit An instant later Hothersall Others got rattled let go all holds and began whipping Branch full of run now swerved in and it was an acci acc ¬ dent that he did not foul Her Favor Straight ¬ ened denned up however he ran home the winner The third horse was beaten three lengths and behind Heigh High Ho close up were Star and Crescent and Cyril who was last awSyifrom the post Waubun Auburn showed wellup well in going to the half halfColonel Colonel Clark must have seen something dis dais ¬ pleasing to him in the third race as he not only had the jockeys stopped at the stand on their way to the post but also interviewed Pat Dunne and Nick Hall the owners respectively of Survivor and Canace Cancel The latter horse did not look well and probably has had top much of it J hnny hinny Campbell btarted bartend El Mido Midol and bet on the colt being quoted as saying Ho could give Canace Cancel twenty pounds last winter in California El Mido Midol beat Canace Cancel but only finished fourth the race being won by Oleska Coleslaw in easy fashion At one of her Chicago starts tbis tbs filly was third in highclass highlands company but Vcame Came out later and ran nowhere in a race won by Antiquary The lastnamed ashamed horse was stronply strongly backed yesterday from 7 down to 4 but after leading nearly all the way he could uo no better than second Suivivoi Surviving finished third close up it being the general opinion that he should have won When third in the back stretch he was badly cut off The start was an excellent one and so closely together were the horses threeeighths from home that any one of them had a chance to win winThe winter The bookmakers laid all kinds of prices at tLf Lf i priiBg periwig of the betting against everything except Charley Christy ihe he advanced from 4 up to 4 to 1 1 Dare II and Topmast and as toth tooth later Lcrse Lacrosse nothing appeared tgainst against hii ii name for some minutes All were well away except Roger B who finishing fourth probably ran iearly early as good a race as the winner Harry McCouch McCoy a new comer and Brother Fred set the pace and opened a gap of three lengths on Topmast opposite the betting ring Harry Mc ¬ Couch quit on the upper turn and finished absolutely but Brother Fred lasted in the front rank to the last eighth post Topmast fejl fell back playing a waiting game and was two open lengths behind the front division rounding the upper turn Meantime Charley Christy had gone to the crabs in front and so when he hit the homestretch was ready to make a run to the wire hard to beat C Sloan on Topmast found such to be the case and he could never catch Schorrs Scorers reliable campaigner Charley Christy beating Topmast in a hard drive Some lengths behind came Dare II just beating Roger B Dare II was either shut out or taken back in going to the first turn Treachery was many lengths behind all others at groundEnchanter the half mile ground Enchanter showed himself a good weight car ¬ rier brier by taking up 124 pounds breaking from the rear and taking the lead in the first eighth said to have been run better than twelve sec ¬ onds bonds then going on and winning easily from the twoyearold toehold filly Iris who had been backed from 12 down to 5 to 1 King Bermuda was sec ¬ ond bond until the last fifty yards and finished many lengths better than the fourth horse N N Kaufman Kaftan who had been backed from 200 to 1 down to 60 Stamina also received good sup ¬ port but did nothing to justify it itBorden fibre Borden got off in front but Caywood Cawed allowed first Farley Fairly and then Ferroll Ferro to take command always lying close up and coming on from the last sixteenth from which point 100 to 1 was offered that Borden would win which he did cleverly by three lengths Tom Toher Other nipped Miss Dooley for the place both hard ridden through the homestretch Count Fonso Fonts was in the front of the bunch two lengths behind Miss Dooley Farley Fairly lasted in front to the betting ring Daily Racing Form showed his colors third at the end of the first sixteenth The sixteenthThe sixteenth sun came out late in the afternoon and Saturdays stake race will be run on a fast track and most likely under a cloudless sky It is to be hoped that such will be the case because the card for the day is one of the best that has yet ben offered at Harlem and that is saying a good deal McNickle Canticle on Canace Cancel in fear of the judges warning and finding it hard to get his filly going made his run entirely too soon and so from having a prominent position at the last eighth was quickly beaten beatenIllinois beaten
