FEATURES OF BLUE BONNETS RACING. Phil Ungar Springs a Mild Surprise in Defeating Skeer Face and Other Good Horses. Montreal. Que., June 9. — The races at Blue Bonnets this afternoon were run over a sloppy track. The change in the footing was responsible for numerous withdrawals from some of the races. The fields that went to the post were well matched, however, and a majority of the finishes found the winn ts home first by small margins. The result of the feature race, an allowance race at one mile, proved a surprise. Phil Ingar took the lead at the start and. never relinquishing it, beat Skeer Face by a length and a half. Sands of Pleasure, which was third, had a rough race, being repeatedly cut off when Robinson attempted to get through on the inside. Dr. Nelson, a heavily-backed favorite in the second race, was cut down during the running and this was responsible for his defeat. This was not the only bit of bad luck that Lewis Garth experienced during the afternoon, for Idle Michael was bid up from 00 to 00 and bought by W. Stoimont, after he won the steeplechase. Cincinnati, recently purchased by I. Fitzgerald from D. Raymond, was stricken with an attack of pneumonia a few days ago and died this morning. T. J. Carroll was an arrival from Kentucky this morning. He reports that Sepoy died and that he has disposed of Father Riley. Theodore Cook and Roddy Pringle were visitors this afternoon. They came from Toronto. Mr. Cook is interested in the horses that race in the name of Howard Oots. Captain B., the good-looking two-year-old that Harry Giddiugs sent to the iiost at Blue Bonnets on Wednesday and which beat Britannia, Is one of the best Canadian-bred youngsters shown in some time. He is owned by Capt. Boss Gooderham, who is at the front serving in command in Company B. in his regiment. This explains how the colt gets his name. Captain B. ran the four and a half furlongs in :55. which stands as a record performance for a Canadian-bred two-year-old. H. G. Bedwell is schooling Chevron through the field with the idea of making a steeplechaser out of him. Mr. Bedwell secured Chevron from G. H. Keene at Havana last winter. It is possible that Karly Light will be purchased by a well-known patron of Kteoplechasing. the latter having asked Bedwell to set a price on the horse. Steeplechase jockey H. Simpson while schooling a horse through the P.lue Bonnets field yesterday, suffered a broken collar bone as a result of the falling of his mount. Kols-rt Bradleys victory yesterday was the first he has scored in two years. Mizell has been schooling the horse over the jumps with the hope of improving his temiM-r. Bobert Bradley began well yesterday and showed something like his old-time form. At yesterdays meeting the committee of the Canadian Racing Association passed the following rule: "Any person entering horses in his or her name which are not the bona -fide propert.v of the person making the entry, will be expelled from all race courses under the jurisdiction of the Canadian Racing Associations, unless these horses are registered with the Canadian Racing Associations to comply with the rale. Any trainer representing himself as training horses which are not actually in his charge, and being trained by him. will have his license revoked.
