Koss scored his first important stake victory at the present Windsor Jockey Club meetiug when his three-year-old Ajom was returned the winner of the Canadian Handicap, a dash of a mile and an eighth witli ,000 added. St. Paul ran second and Sir Clarence third. The dash, which was the feature of the day and served to bring out the best band of Canadian-breds available, resulted in ft spectacular struggle in which the winner came from behind. There was the usual delay at the harrier, due to the fractious behavior of several of the starters. The start was u good one and Chief Sponsor was the one to show the way, closely pursued by Sir Clarence. There was a general closing up after rounding the far turn, where Ajom made his move. In the stretch he gained steadily and, out finishing St. Paul, was drawing clear at the end. , The card which was offered for decision this afternoon was an exceptionally good one and served to bring out the better class of horses. A local record was probably established in the attendance which occupied every inch of vantage space in the stands and bleachers. The clubhouse inclosure .was crowded, .with members and visitors prominent in state and social life. The Windsor Handicap, a dash of a mile and a sixteenth, was the secondary feature and brought, together a small but well matched band. The Seagram Stables English horse Brilliant Jester was returned the winner from Daydue. while My Dear was third. The winner was well ridden by Fields, was under stout restraint until called on and drew away iu easy fashion. Daydue held My Dear safe for second place. The latter was closer up than usual, but was not equal to the task when called on. The J. S. Ward and K.
