clear to within u quarter of a mile fronv home when he Itegau to grow leg weary and when lie did he started to bear over from the middle of the track to the outer edge While it did not look as if he had interfered with any of the others except Genesta Ella Bry son and Palanquin loth wero bothered The latter was coming through on the outside rail like a streak and although he never did get clear sailing he was a good third Genesta was also closing fast at the time that she was sharply cut off and there were many who were inclined to believe that she would have won but for being forced to pull up The upThe handicap at one mile saw the Hallenbeck colors in front for the first time during the meet ¬ ing when Hedge won She ran a race of the sensa ¬ tional kind In entering the stretch she was abso ¬ lutely last and few dared to believe that she had a possible chance chanceBut But once she began to move up she showed dazzling speed and notwithstanding the fact that she was bumped several times by Ueybourn while working her way to the front in the final furlong she won by three parts of a length Guy Fisher also showed keen speed in the stretch racing Nearly last to enter the stretch he finished a good second In addition to humping Hedge Ueybourii was guilty of putting Yankee Notions on the fence threesix ¬ teenths from tho finish and the colt was knocked out of the running At the time he was well up witli the others and had a winning chance Ills rider Karrick lodged a claim of foul which was allowed by the stewards who disqualified Keybourn from third place aiid gavo that position to Jaw ¬ bone In addition Ford who rode Iteybourn was suspended for the rest of the meeting for rough rid ¬ ing ingJohn John B Madden won the opening dash with The Spirit which showed quite an improvement over her previous effort but Albert Simons made him pay more than the amount of the purse to retain her The Spirit which was onterec to be sold for iOO was bid up to twice that amount by Simons but Madden bid the customary 5 and retained her at 1205 1205Tranid Tranid the twoyearold filly which brought top price at the Kohler sale last Saturday and was then resold to Schuyler L Parsons for a price said to be 0000 worked live furlongs in 101 easily this afternoon afternoonJames James Uowe trainer for the Whitney stable does not take kindly to the fact that few believe Whisk Broom II ran one mile and a quarter in 200 when he won the Suburban Handicap on Sat ¬ urday last Howe is strongly of the opinion that Timer W II Barretto was correct in timing the race Howe who as a rule has little to say in u conversation witli Starter Jim Milton today declared that Whisk Broom II is entitled to the record without any question as he himself timed him iu 200i
