champion twoyearold of last year Sun Briar a sou of SumlridgL Sweet Briar made a bid for the threeyearold crown this afternoon in a fine victory in the mile Delaware Handicap worth 21575 net which he

over the Syracuse track September 13 1911 during the mixed meeting held that year under the auspices of the New York State Fair As ¬ sociation Amalfi carried the colors of It T Wilson president of the

viewpoint Sun Briar in this afternoons race carried 113 pounds practically even weights with the top imposts con jsMerinij the weightforage scale andhelLft not u particle of room for doubt as to his superiority over those he met for he stood the early fast pace in resolute style with the leaders wearied he raced by them in easy style to win well in hand from the fast coming Midway with Motor Cop lasting it out to overhaul the early pacemaker Old Koenig KoenigThe The latter displayed tremendous speed for three quarters and kept his followers hard at their task and for a period threatened to be the winner but when finally straightened for the stretch racing he displayed distress signals and when hard ridden finally succumbed Sun Briar meed forwardly from the start and only during a brieJT space in the stretch did Knapp seem to lose confidence This was just after rounding the last turn where he plied his whip briefly but desisted when Sun Briar really took command Of equal importance was the show ¬ ing of Midway in the race which closed an immense gap during the last quarter after having been far back and he was going fastest of all at the finish bat Knapp had Sun Briar under restraint at this stage Old Koeuig showed symptoms of being a sprinter The Kilmer horse came back to the scales fresh and playful without the semblance of the lameness that it was generally rumored he was afflicted with before the start startOwner Owner Kilmer and trainer McDaniel were the rs cipent of many congratulations over the colts splen ¬ did showing If lie continues in his present form and there is every indication that he will the su ¬ premacy among the three yearold division was weli defined by Sun Briar with todays nice It is doubtful if any of the others will take his measure under
