LADY WINIFREDS ZEPHYR. FRED JOHNSON SCORES A COUP WITH ADDED STARTER AT THE BAY. Philander Wins the Handicap W. H. Carey Is Badly Handled Halket Makes It Three Straight Paulaker Dead. New York, Juno 25. Lady Winifred, an added starter, won tlit; Zephyr Slakes at Slieepsliead Kay this afternoon and was tlie medium of a considerable coup by her owner, Fred .lolinson, and his friends. It was a ratlier moderate field carded for the Zephyr, hut the addition of Lady Winifred and Kins .lames save tone to the event. Lady Winifred had not started since winning the Criterion Stakes at Gravesend, lint in the meantime she had worked in a maimer satisfateory to her owner and trainer, and it was whispered about the track early that she would he added and heavily backed. The best quotaiou agiimt her was 3 to 1 and S to 5 was being taken at post time. Lady Winifred won all the way, though the distance live and a ltalf furlongs seems to be fully as far as she wants to run with her weight up. At the end Live Wire was close -to her. Garner, who rode the winner, did nothing more titan hand ride Iter, however, and the daughter of Ilaudit must be put down as a very smart filly. King James, on the other hand, did not do so well, as after getting well up with the leaders at the bend he seemed inclined ito swerve in behind the front horses and Kadtke was kept busy getting him straight. Live Wire, which only graduated from the maiden class yesterday, ran a splendid race and seems to be just coming to himself and that in the way to live nil to his brilliant private reputaion of the earlier part of the season.

Only two favorites were successful, though a majority of the winners were well supported. In Halket, William Gerst seems ta have a smart two-year-old. The son of Heno, conceding weight to each of the other starters, won the opening race in commanding style with Nimbus, a well backed favorite, third. Halket Is a colt of splendid conformation, compactly lmllt itnd would be called a big little horse. Although Jarrett was much the best in the steeplecb-jse, he was beaten by an indifferent ride. .Mitchell had him on the outside all of tin; way anil he must have covered a great many yards more of ground than did tlie winner. Dick Shaw, whose margin of victory was only a length. A badly judged ride also was responsible for the poor showing of W. H. Carey, if not for his defeat. W. II. Carey is a horse with one hurst of speed, yet Knapp took him to the front in the first furlongs to run head and head with Red Friar, with the result that W. II. Carey was through after going seven furlongs. Philander, well rated by W. .Miller, found it easy to beat Red Friar through the stretch. The latter is distinctly a hot weather horse and should do much better from now on. He is well worth watching in moderate company. It is not improbable that Philander will he selected to carry Mr. Keenes colors in the 3,000 Coney Island Jockey Club Stakes Saturday. Paulaker, which fell during the running of the steeplechase, got up and galloped around the course until exhausted. He then attempted to jump Hie fence which separated the turf course from the main track. lie was so tired, however, that he struck the fence, turned a somersault and. falling on his head, was Instantly killed, his neck being broken.
