The Bedford Selling Stakes, with ,500 added, for three-year-olds and over, at about three-quarters of a mile, was the outstanding feature at the Yonkers track today and was contested by a field of six well-known sprinters, among which Pickwick and Toto carried the hoies of the majority of those speculatively inclined, the remainder of the field attracting scant attention. Toto, fleetest of foot at the start, rushed into a good lead, which he maintained until well down the stretch, where Youneed headed him momentarily until Pickwick, saved from the early pace under one of Elisors best jndged rides, challenged, and .in a stirring drive was a length in front at the finish. Youneed made a brilliant showing, only to give way to the superiority of the Clancy gelding and outstayed Toto for second money". Toto set a hot pace, but tired in the final sixteenth. He lasted long enough to get the small portion of the stakes from Ultima Thule, which ran a good race under weak handling. When John I. Day was returned the winner of the fifth race it marked a double win for owner W. V. Casey, he having also scored with Bright Gold. Butwell saved his mount in the early racing, moved him up witli a rush in the stretch, and won easily. Koh-i-Noor, the favorite, ran a good race for her new owner, G. Peterson, securing second plaea-easily. Hindoostan-hung-on -well enough to get third place from Paddy, which ran a. game race throughout. May Alley, running in greatly improved form over her recent efforts, accounted for the opening dash for maiden youngsters and proved best in a furious drive in the last sixteenth. Locust Leaves outstayed Swirl, which tired after making the early pace. Butwells energetic finish enabled Bright Gold to score in the second race by a head. In which the two-year-olds were asked to go a mile. Hdavy Weapon finished with a rush, just failing to get up after meeting with interference in the final racing. Thunderbird, the favorite, running in the colors of M. Bernard, her new owner, and favorite, was the medium of heavy speculation, but was never dangerous at tiny time. At the conclusion of . the race jockey Carroll claimed a foul against the winner, which, after some consideration by the stewards, was not allowed. Fred Fenchler, a prominent business man of El Paso, Tex., and stockholder in the Jockey Club at Juarez, was a visitor and will remain for the remainder of the meeting.

Poilu pursued the leader throughout and secured second place handily from Hohokus. Alvord, the favorite, quit after showing early speed. M. IScrnard purchased the filly Thunderbird from W. R.
