BUT ONE WINDSOR FAVORITE WINS. Detroit, Mich., October 10. Todays results at Windsor told another tale of defeated favorites, Oleasa, winner of the fifth race, being the only public choice that made good. The winners in some of the events sprung from most unexpected quarters and some of the reversals were as startling as they were sudden. The biggest disappointment of the afternoon was the poor showing of Ketchemike, favorite in the fourth race. Ketchemike opened at a short price, but steadily receded in the betting. Ante-post indications made Eonite look like the right one, but a series of interferences spoiled whatever chance the Pangle youngster might have had. When, the start came, Riley left the post pulling Ketchemike up and, when he moved up, he elected to go to the outside and take the longest route. This move gave Padrone an advantage which it was impossible to overcome. In the sixth race Cock Sure ran like a stake horse. He dashed into a long lead in the first furlong and in the run down the backstretch increased his advantage to fifteen lengths. Delaby took a restraining hold of him in the final furlong and, after being eased up, be won by ton lengths. Oleasja led her field throughout in the. fifth race and had a live lengths advantage as tho winning mark was passed. Avaunteer made a runaway affair of the feature race, a mile handicap, in which he beat Colonel Jack out a length. Avaunteer was the extreme outsider in the betting. Bernhardt put up a rattling good ride on Merry George in the steeplechase, and landed him an easy winner from lint well. At tho first jump one of the stirrup irons on Merry Georges saddle broke ind Bernhardt was almost" unseated. He scrambled riack into the saddle and for the remainder of the ;rip rode with but one stirrup.
