El Paso, Tex., December 3. — A handicap at three-quarters for horses of all ages was the outstanding feature of the card at the Juarez track this afternoon. It was contested by a field of five, and F. Shortells consistent old gelding Kootenay made every post a winning one. Kootenay bad be-n backed to the exclusion of everything else in the race and went to the post a strong first choice. Wilhite raced in closest pursuit for practically all the way and outstayed Othello for second place. The latter had bad racing luck, being pocketed several times. Moller, which was beaten as a favorite yesterday, suffered the same experience today when Brighouse took his measure by a head in the opening dash. Moller established a long lead in the early racing but tired when Brighouse challenged. The talent made no mistake when Dundreary was backed down ti evens to win the second race. Francis played the part of pacemaker, but was no match for Dundreary when the latter challenged in th3 stretch. The Long castoff went on to victory by himself. Orimar Lad was a pronounced choice for the third race, but the finisii found him last. He was sadly deficient in speed. Bevelry James, which had come in for staunch backing at lilieral odds, came with a rush though the stretch, passed the pacemakers. Category and Incle Jimmie Gray, and had no serious opposition at the end. Yorkville won the fifth race and was bid up from 00 to by Elijah Brewster. He was retained by J. C. Kirkpatrick, who claimed the horse in his last start from S. Sadlo. It was announced that the races hereafter will start each day at 2:30 oclock. Frank Shannon has succeeded Jack Atkin in tho betting ring. S. Veiller purchased Maznik today for 00 from R. Ripiey.
