STAKE FOR TEN POINT A. L. ASTES COLORS ARE CARRIED TO VICTORY IN FOX HILL HANDICAP. Big Son of Jack Point Runs Fastest Three-Quartors of the Havre de Grace Meeting Ckupa-dero Clinches His Claim to Greatness. Havre de Grace, Md., November 2S. Ten Toint came back into his own here this afternoon when he won the Fox Hill Handicap, a six-furlong sprint for three-year-olds and upward. It was the lirst victory the big Jack Point horse has won for Tony Aste in months. Ten Point broke in front, but his lead was of short duration, for Tranid soon sprinted into the lead and showed the way by open daylight, with Pomette Bleu and Flittergold next, running head and head. Dreyer took Ten Point to the outside and on the turn for home he began to gam on the leaders. Half way down the stretch he had passed Flittergold and Pomette Bleu and he overtook Tranid inside the last furlong and went on to an easy victory. Tranid beat Flittergold for second money. Ten Point looked better and warmed up with more dash than in any of his recent efforts. The time was 1:12, and it was the fastest race at the distance run during the meeting. If any doubt remained about the superiority of Miss Chamblets Chupadero in the jumping division it was dispelled this afternoon, when the Sam Phillips three-year-old, taking up 157 pounds, and giving away much weight, won in a canter by ten lengths from Foxcraft, after Ryan, his rider, had given an acrobatic performance at the first fence. At that jump Chupadero made a bad landing and Ryan was unseated. He clung to his horse, however, and climbed back into the saddle. William Oliver loaded Kewessa on the cars after his victory of yesterday and shipped him with the remainder of his horses to Lakewood, N. J., where thev will go into winter quarters. Francis J. Pons sustained injuries at his farm near Nashville, Tenn., which yvill lay him upfur, several weeks. lie was thrown from his buggy and broke three ribs. Quick Start and Over the Sauds have been turned over to J. G. Waguon, who will ship thein to Charleston. J. V. Murphy purchased the plater, Peunyrock. yesterday and turned him over .to A. G. Blakeley. Jockey Frank Coleman, whose leg was bruised recently, has gone to his home in Toronto to spend a week. He will report to A. G. Blakeley at Charleston about December 0. Blakeley will take the lad to Cuba with him this winter. Hugh Penny, the well-known trainer, received word today that the Jockey Club had restored him to full priveleges. Pennys offense was a technical infraction of the rule which forbids anyone having in their employ a person in bad standing. Penny is popular with his fellow trainers and received congratulations from many friends on the track on being restored to full privileges.
