H0LZBERG TAKES HER MEASURE IN FEATURE RACE AT LOUISVILLE. Ideal Racing Conditions Prevail at Churchill Downs and Spirited Sport Is Provided — Syl-•r vestris Loses Caste. Louisville. Ky.. May IS. — Ideal racing conditions prevailed this afternoon and accounted for a superior brand of aaart at Churchill Downs. The attendance was the best of the week. Close finishes marked most of the races and a lilieral sprinkling of sur- prises added interest. The defeat of Svlvestrls bv Nanette and others was totally awxaceteC Sylves- Iris lias always been regarded highly, but on her showing this afternoon, opposed as she was by a mediocre band and suffering decisive defeat, she will not in future receive such consideration as in the past. The handicap at a mile and a sixteenth resulted in rather an easy victory for Dr. Holzlierg. which Edward Trotter, his present owner, secured by the claiming process at Jacksonville last winter. He ran one of the best races of his career this after- noon, and at no time after running the first half mile was he In danger of defeat. Crystal Maid, the iiinner-up. was an odds-on favorite in the mutuels. and encouraged her backers in the earlv stages, but frequent interference and a poorly-judged ride were contributing factors in her defeat. Kercheval made a good showing by finishing third after a strenuous stretch sprint to beat Tom IKdan. Great Heavens and Early Tide ran much below their best form. Southern Gold had things his own wav in the opener, sprinting into a long lead from the start and making every post a winning one. though tiring a bit near the end. G. W. J. Bissells Scarlet Pimpernel, a first-time starter, made a promising debut when he took the purse iu the third "after a liard drive to outlast H. R. Brandt. He was aided considerably by a big advantage at the start. Joe Stein had scant chance for the purse, as he was away stumbling and hope-v leaalj out of it. Princess Industry came away to a cantering vic- lory in the fifth. Ella Br.vson. Rue and Grand Peggy finished so closely aligned for second place that the official placing was necessary to determine the result. In the closing race Cool, a new comer in these parts, attracted much attention in a betting wav and was psjaj favorite over Fantastic. Cool led by a good margin to the stretch, then was passed by County Clerk. Edward Maginu. secretary of the I.atonia Jockey Club, mingled witli the horsemen here this after-j noon and received applications for stable room. H« announced that nearly all who are engaging in the racing here will be on hand for the opening at the Milldale course.
