Tlie Martinet filly showed a fine performance, shouldering top weight of 12i poTimls and winning going away after overcoming a lot of interference entering the homestretch, where she was carried almost to the outside fence when Agnes May bolted. The judges evidently were of the opinion that the rider was more at fault than the filly for the liolting. as a. ruling issued from the official tiagodu after the race brought suspension to jockey Griffin for a week. Another ruling was handed out. in which tlie judges recommended that the owner and trainer of Bariisdale be ruled off the turf. They based their ruling on a report from the association veterinarian. Dr. Keogh. relative to the condition of "the horse when he was sent to the post this afternoon and in his race on Saturday last. The infi-reuce is that the horse was stimulated this afternoon and not in his previous start. Bariisdale was lieateu five lengths in a race at thrill BjaaiUu of a mile that was rim in 1:1X1, while he won today in a race run in 1:14. Seymour Beutler. winner of the race in iptestion. was third in todays effort, and it reallv leaked as if it was this horse that showed the "reversal instead of Partisdale.
