Much work has been done on the plant since last fall. The hack proper is faster than it was last September when a sort of expert mental meeting of five days was held. An im mease crowd was iu attendance, the French el,-meat being much more noticeable than at Hhie Bonnets. A splendid program was provided by the club, the features being an allowance race at six furlongs and the King George Stakes, ,000 added, a dash of one mile and a sixteenth. R. K. Watkins furnished Hie winner of the stake iu his Breosastiek four year old. Barnegat, which came from behind and won in eas.s fashion from Tactics and David Craig. The latter ruled favorite, and was outweighted. The King i-Jeorge Stakes is the second lixlure that Barnegat has won here this spring. He beat a good lot in the Jacques artier stakes nl Brae Boaaeta on the opening day. There were aevernl withdrawals from today a races, aaaaat them Waterbass, which is being riser ved far the 820.000 Derby to be run oa Saiurda.v and the need lour year obi Kingly.

Harry In.wic Whitneys Cabaret won the six furlong dash. Different tactics were pursued with Cabaret than heretofore. He was sent to the front. and. showing keen sjus-il. was never headed. At the end. however. Nathan was forced to ride Cabaret out to withstand Bwana Tomboa challenge. The latter probably would have won had the race been a dxteenth farther. Well balanced fields went to the post in all of the races and in several of theip the closest of finishes resulted. This was especially so in the closing event, in which the favorite. Ask Ma. came from last place to get up in the last stride to beat Orperlh a nose. Another close finish came with the ruuuing of the fifth race, in which Cliff Stream and Folly H. fought it out through the homestretch. The result in this race was also in doubt until the official placing was displayed. Archer King, a first-time starter from Mrs. L. A. Livingstons stable, showed a good performance in the third race, in which he beat some fair youngsters. Archer King acted a bit green at the harrier and when the break came was slow to get into his stride. He closed a big gap and in tin- drive through the homestretch shook off his opposition to win by a length. J. W. Fuller scored a double victory when Colquitt took the opening and Ask Ma the closing race. The latters victory was not espeially profitable for bet owner, as he was forced to stand a remap of 05 lo retaiu the lilly. J. W. Hedrick did tin- bidding.
