CHIEF KEE BEATS BOUQUET AT TORONTO. Musgraves Handling of Seagram Mare Held Accountable for Her Failure in Woodbine Feature. Toronto. Out.. May 28. — A crowd second only to that of the opening day turned out a Woodbine his afternoon. A high-class program was offered, which included the King F.dward Hotel Cold Cup and the Aintree Steeplechase. The racing conditions could not well have been improved on. the weather betas warm and pleasant, while the track was faster than on any previous day of the meeting. Tlie fields were evenly balanced and the public found the task of selecting winners far from easy. Planutess and Dursar were the only favorites to win. The biggest upset of the afternoon came with the running of the King Edward Hotel Jold Cup. in which the Seagram entry. Bouquet, was heavlly backed at a short price. Bouquet showed a smart IH-rforinance. and with better handling might have reversed the order ot the finish. Musgrave had the mount. He was told to lay off the early pace, and he followed instructions so faithfully that he took Bouquet under a choking pull for three-quarters. When he finally decided to release his hold he made entirely too much use of the mare in rushjng her up to he leaders, with the result that she was all ill when Chief Kee challenged in the homestretch. The latter, after laying off the pace, gradually improved his position rounding the far turn, and in the final furlong finished courageously and won going away, with plenty in reserve. Capt. Fred Presgrave. who is handling the jumpers that "Mr. OHietland" sent north this season. sent Dallacalla to the | ost for the Aintree Steeple-etaMC in excellent condition. Harvey Boyle was substituted in place of Bowser, and. under good handling. Ballacalla won from the heavily-backed Byzantine. The latter was ridden by his owner. Nat Ray. Ray saved every inch of ground |Missihle.a took desperate chaiii-es and rode a desperate finish, but Ballacalla was too good at the weights, and the best Byzantine could do was to finish second. Iiovotie. making her first apjiearance of the season in the opening dash, won in handsome fashion, coming from behind in the stretch and finishing with good courage. Colin Campbell was among the visitors at the course. He arrived from New York this morning and left for Montreal tonight. W. II. Nor they, secretary of the Montreal Jockey Club, also returned. to Montreal oiiight.
