Which was the next liest Offering. As a matter if faet. Mr. Hildreth shovihl iiuve Mured a third success. It was only because •obi Montgomery was all tut knocked down on the iiist t urn that he was beaten by Bellcvicw iu the mile and live sixteenths raee. After Montgomery had ben lieaten he was claimed bjT 1. Dunne, who was represented by The Peer in the raee. He was entered to lie sold for tH , so that he cost Mr. Dunne fl.MO. The day was an ideal one and a InfjM Friday crowd was on hand. The track was probably ill its worst i-otiilit ion. Keeent rains have softened the bottom thoroughly and particularly on the inner rail it was deep and holding. Some of the beat horses of the jiftertioon were lieaten by being taken to the inside, a ad in at least two of the races the linishes were unsatisfactory by reason of accidents ami mistakes «if the riders. Tin Schenectady is one of the new stakes, hut be-in;; under soiling conditions it naturally did not attract a top-notch lield. though BcattgOWCbC. the winner, was the horse that set the pace in the Batatas* Handicap. He so greatly outclassed the others that there was little to the running. Jockey Shilling, who returned to the saddle after a suspension of three days, had the mount, and he was content to rate the son of Commando behind the pace almost to the stretch, where he came on to win easily. It was a good day for Shilling, as ho was the pilot of three winners. His tirst score was on Shannon, which beat Herkimer, a Sanlord starter, only because Hutwell chose a course through the stTrtrtf along the inner rail, where the going was a«T . He followed this by riding both Hestigoliehe ■M Firestone to victory for his employer. Mr. llil-dreth. Di the handicap which went to Firestone. Shillings ride did not have so much to do with his victory as mistakes made by Hutwell. who was riding Bob It. Through the early stages Hutwell had his mount securely pocketed on the rail and at the head of the stretch he permitted liiui to run almost to the outside fence. Helen Barlice. a tilly that raced well in the far wist, was an easy winner of one of the two-year-old races and iu the other B. . Cowdtaa Swannanoa. one of the longest shots in the field, scored over John Sanlords Kockville. Tomorrow is ■ particularly big day and there are Keren races down for decision. The regular features are the Sblllelab Steeplechase, the Saratoga Special and the TraveM Stakes, while special attractions are an officers army aerTlce cup. in which oeViri of the .regular army arc to ride, a boaters steeplechase Bad a mile race on the Hat for gentlemen riders.
