This event was of the guaranteed value .of 0,000 in its lirst two years and possibly would remain so had Mr. Whitney lived.

Through the agency of Delhi and Sysonby, James it. Kcene captured it in its two years of high tide value. Under its present conditions it is of the guaranteed value of 0,000 and is still an important and much coveted raee. Its record is as follows: Year. First. Age. Jockeys. Wt. Second. Age. Wt. Third.
