SEA LION IN FORM AGAIN A gloomy dark day with the baze baize and smoke lying low failed to deter the racegoers racehorse and the attendance at Harlem was the average one The track was not only deep but sloppy the rain of the forenoon having made a lake of the course It did not seem as if smart peo peon ¬ ple pale could guess how the horses would perform as should a handicnpper handicapper have as many kinds of track on his list as did the late esteemed local jewelry man still he would be in a quandary as here was presented a new condition of soil The management is most unfortunate as it will take days after the rain ceases to get the Har Hara ¬ lem ylem track into anything like record breaking condition and then the season will be too far advanced to give the great mare Imp a chance to set a new mark A drizzling rain fell the greater part of the afternoon afternoonSixteen afternoons Sixteen regular and two Held bookmakers posted the odds of 10 to 1 Andes for the first race This colt ran much better than on Mon ¬ day last when weighted relatively with Canace Cancel a esterday yesterday he finished behind her for now as tiSa tisane he got off flying but here failed to stop as then and won the race away off Rio Chico Chic was second on the turn but Skeets Skeet Martin ou Canace Cancel headed Sinks colt for a time only to fail in the run home and finish fourth Me Nickle Nickel usually rides Canace Cancel but it was thought Martin could ride her better which proved to be a wrong way of figuring Rio Chico Chic coming on next the inside rail was easily second from Miss Marks who got the worst of a straggling start Facade a strong fp was well behind Miss Marks and the rear was brought up by Scatcohen Catchments and Iris There was considerable talk about Andes Certain it is that he was favorite on Monday and a long shot on Thurs ¬ day and failed to stop at a longer distance distanceEverybody distance Everybody thought that Joljy Jolly Roger would win and he did although J Reiff Riff was driving him hard at the last sixteenth to beat Eva Rice who led nearly all the way Foxaette Oxalate was second to Eva Rice until the middle of the upper turn but died away and was beaten in a hard fight by Nannie Nannies Lis Lisa Sister No others were dangerous The bookmakers took a chance against so slow a beginner as Jolly Roger and Ed Austin laid 3 to 5 place for a con ¬ siderable sidereal amount The favorite was in the ruck truck headed by Barrisso Harrison on the far turn but once on his stride he ate the others up upIt pIt It was 2 to 1 take your pick Falomacita Valencia Judge Tarvin Arvin and Sea Lion at the opening of the betting on the third race but Falomacita Valencia was backed as low as 3 to 2 while Sea Lion ad ¬ vanced vance to 3 to 1 A play on the latter at post time knocked the odds back one half point and sent the favorite to 2 to 1 Leo Mayer threw away some money as he said on Nora Ives Wives and this cut her best price in two She ran absolutely Rival Dare broke up two starts and finally got away in the rear Sea Lion jumped to the front and was not headed win ¬ ning Ming with considerable left by two lengths from Falomacita Valencia she being third to Judge Tarvin Arvin who got third money until the last eighth Mountain Dew many lengths away headed the r JrdivisionNow Jrdivision Radisson Now came up a tough proposition The best horses in the fourth race cannot run in the mud two of the others carried overweight and Double Dummy was handicapped with sup ¬ posedly posed the poorest jockey So the play was a general one the bookies taking part and mak make ¬ ing King little better than a rounder1 Newsgath Newsbeat erer serer went off flying and had four lengths over Double Dummy entering the baskstretchCherry backstretch Leaf third others close up Double Dummy had Newsgatterer Newscaster beaten a he far turn but here Ba l bis bias and = iu rn inn collaring Double Dummy a sixteenth inside the straight ran head and head for a piece then showed in front by a neck at the betting ring ButRutter Butyrate was whipping the leader holding the outside position while Hothersall Others hung on for dear life to his horses head Close in Double Dummy responded to one crack of the whip Rutter Ruttier was trying to ride so close that his rivals game would be blocked and his num numb ¬ ber beer went up Doctor Sheppard third was beaten off offDont affront Dont Don't Skip Me off in front of a close bunch at the first attempt was not beaded in the fifth race and won easily Silver Set ran her close for

Hothersall Others was posted to ride Elidad Elided and opening at 9 to 5 the horse was backed down to 3 to 2 when the announcement came Put Rut ¬ ter tear on Elidad Elided Then the price was even

8 to 5 3 to 5 3 to 10 Glenmoyne Lennon led to near the half mile ground Lucid second Here Elidad Elided shot by and led into the homestretch by twenty lengths as he was eased up George Lee was within four lengths of him at the finish In a rousing finish Gold Band just beat Glenmoyne Lennon and Lucid for the third money The start was a perfect one Colonel Clark is nothing if not original but the change of jockeys it is said was at the suggestion of Elidads Elias owner who had been on pins and needles all day fearing Hothersall Others could not ride the horse Then as Rutter Ruttier could not make the weight Skeets Skeet was called into play Any boy could have won on the horse and the change was a hard blow to Hothersall Others who had won by such nice work on Double Dummy DummyJames Dummy
