Blue Grass Stakes at seven furlongs, worth i ,160 to the winner, from seven other mediocre three-year-olds at Chnchill Oowns today. Prince Ahmeds victory was a fluky one. as T. Taylor, his rider, caused a raixup soon after the start which practically eliminated Fleming, the favorite, as a contender, and made beveral others suffer from the interference. With clear sailing. Tanglewood and Light Wool. Which. finished second and third respectively, would have beaten him home. Taylor was lined 5 and will not -be allowed to ride for anyone for the next nine davs. Although the stake race was the feature, the mile handicap which, preceded it brought out a better field and its running was highly exciting.

Miss Alert having s. niewhat the best of It, while .Tacquin. Wing Ting and Pasadena were the trailers. Jacquln managed lo improe his position on the first turn, but under [ oor handling he ceased lo be a factor after going a half. Wing Ting was forced to go wide all the wav, but after settling into her stride she came like a rocket and. wearing the leaders down in the final furlong, got up to win out in Hie last seventy yards from Phil Finch, which barely man aged to get up in time lo take second place from Miss Alert.
