LARGEST CROWD OF THE FALL SEASON Sees Pinal Days Sport at Jamaica Woodtrap-Albert A. in Spirited Duel. NKW YOniC. N. Y.. October 11. The Continental Handicap. ,000 added, at one mile and aii eighth, and the Consolation Handicap for all ages, were the features for the filial dn of racing on loiig Island. The days sport was witnessed by the largest crowd of the season. A. K. Macombers Star Master, after the withdrawal of Audacious, was installed favorite at a prohibitive price ove.r .Hlairgowrie, the only opposition. The raits arouseif bur little interest, the Star Shoot horse only cantering under strong restraint throughout, Blairgowrie never being able to offer any contention in the racing. AVnr Note repeated his last out by winning the third race in as hollow fashion as he did in his former victory, racing under a stout pull all the way, Dragon Hock, fancied by many, getting second money in easy style from Don Dodge, which came from far back, in the final racing. Vice-Chairman, from The Beach Stable, and making his debut, was the medium of a heavy plunge in the opening race of the day, but failed to defeat the favorite, St. Allan, which went to the front early and, although hard pressed, gamely withstood the good things challenge at the end. Vice-Chairman ran a fine race for a first attempt and doubtless will improve with racing. The Wagoner proved best of the balance. Woodtrap reversed the order of finish over his last meeting witli Albert A. in,, the second race, the superior riding of HutWell over. Weiiier being sufficient to warrant equal favoritism at post time. The race was a sensational one, the pair racing head and head for the entire race, the. Trap Hock horse proving best at the end. Peerless One had little difficulty in getting the short end of the purse from War Machine, which had no speed at any part of It. It is rumored that G. W. Loft will make a change of trainers for his stable. George Odont has been spoken of by many for the position. F. C. Hain returned today ufter a visit to .Kentucky, where his horses are being campaigned. War Note was claimed by his owner for ,000; Thunderbird by his owner for ,025, and Larglietto by Fred Slocum for Jli-00.
