Seldom loos it happen that two sisters are left to light it out for tin; purse iii any race, lmt this came about in the opener when Jyntee anil Turnabout, the former a six-year-old ami the latter a three-yea r-olil. left tlielr opponents far in their rear and contested the puree from the start, finishing a half length apart, with the. elder mare in frcnl. Jyntee was an overwhelming favorite, lmt her younger relative forced her to extend herself for the entire race to beat her home. Thimble was best of the others. The erratic Donnacona, which lias developed bad post traits, seemed to be in a soft spot in the second race, at a mile, contested by some? fairly gooO onus, and the support for him was steady and confident. Merrier, who rides the I-oft steeplechasers, but gallops Donnacona in his work, was put aboard, thinking the horse would be more tractable under Morglers riding. Donnacona did not improve in post manners under Mcrgler, for the start found him left standing, refusing to join the others. His elimination from the race made it possible for It. T. Wilsons Kirkleviugton to win after wearing Musknllonge down, which had shown the most speed from the start. Servilor had to be ridden hard to shake ofr Wynnewood, with the sore going Genie W. following, Km nk .1.

Bradleys Hit of White, which just retained second place from Idle Dell, with the Kentucky Derby winner of this year, l.ehave Yourself.! following, having been far back throughout. Only four started. of AVhite and Crocus absorbed the most attention, the western filly because of her good showing against Prudery, being made a slight favorite.. They were away to a perfect start, with Crocus at once being sent into the? leail by Fator. Lyke. on of White, kept her following the Whitney filly closely and never gave her a chance to get more than two lengths away. On the stretch turn he made a play t overhaul her and her supporters rejoiced when she moved up swiftly, but Fator, who had Crocus under restraint, gave her free rein and again she took a safe lead and continued in tins van iintil the finish. Near the end l!it of White, swerved and idle Dell, kept close to the inner rail, moved up resolutely and for a while it seemed like she would repeat her triumph over Crocus as in their last meeting, lint t Jiis time Filter did not blunder and kept Crocus going and she held her opponents safe in the closing strides. Hie time of the race was fairly fast, the mile being done iu 1:157 If,. Good racing was again the order this afternoon, under pleasant conditions and witnessed by a big crowd. Lawn action showed improvement over yesterday and the success oT the talent in landing in many of the winners was accompanied by considerable losses to the oralizers. Natural Bridge, which has not been in racing for some time, but has been working in private in good style, was regarded with much -favor iu the mile and an eighth dash, fifth on the card, and he justified it, for he raced Gath into defeat before going three-quarters, outstayed. Benevolent through the stretch and held the fast saining Mini frequently Interfered with Gipsy Lad safe at the end. although inclined to swerve out. Benevolent was third, lntvng run a good race.

Keogn on Griselt.a, which had nearly been thrown at t lie start, and Johnson on Dolores, - both complained to the steward:; of having been impeded by Ambrose on Rose Hill, and after tearing Ambrose Jtose Hill wms disqualified, second place being given to Story Teller and Dolores moved into third place.
