The racing.andt Kenilworth Park this afternoon was. the best of the meeting so far. The features were the Bison City Selling Stakes and a handicap at one mile. The fields in all six of the races were evenly balanced and the finishes in four were close and exciting. The Bison Citv Stakes went to Fred Cooks honest little plater, Tom Dolan. He carried top weight and won by a neck from Betsy Binford. This race was marred somewhat by a straggling start. Irene A. had the inside position and broke running fast.

Columbia Lad, which was favorite, came out of tlie race with a bowed tendon, lhe colt showed signs of lameness, in his recent work and his people took a desperate chance in trying to win a purse before laying him np. Knglanders poor riding was responsible for De Keszkes defeat in the fifth race in which he was heavilv backed by his people. At the sixteenth post, where Panique challenged, Englander appeared to lose his head for he deliberately stood up straight in his stirrups and it looked as if he would topple off his horse. The result was that Panique got up and beat De Reszke out a neck with Peter Knight third another neck away. The latter covered much more ground than either of tite first two and had he not been carried out by De Reszke, lie certainly would have won. The stable of A.
