DOUBLE FOR ROSS STABLE Sudor and Harmonious Win Principal Races at Connaught Park. OTTAWA. Out.. September 14. The J. K. L. Ross stable accounted for two of the principal races at Connaught Park this afternoon when Sudor was returned the winner of the Sovereign Handicap while Harmonious won the Terminal Purse. In the 1 nulling of the first mentioned race, which was for three-year-olds and over foaled in Canada, Crown of Gold was the one to set the early pace and lie was closely followed by Sudor. When straightened out in the stretch run Sudor drew clear and won with speed in reserve from Woodbine and Crown of Gold. The latter tired badly and was passed by Woodbine in the closing strides. The running of the Terminal Purse was marked by the first public appearance of Harmonious, the well-bred son of Prince Palatine Melody. He ran like a colt of his royal lineage should and won in impressive style. Overrun was second. Navisco was third. Qiianah, an English youngster imported by the Seagram Stable, was installed favorite in the dash, but he stood flat footed when the start came and could not improve his position. Erickson rode both the Ross horses aud completed his third score of the afternoon with Purl. The latter won by a wide margin from Mess Kit. The race was a costly cne for Erickson, as he was suspended for the remainder of the meeting for rough riding. Frivol and Joe Dryer were a wiuniug combination in the opening dash when II. Neustctters colors flashed in front of Kinetic and Tom Goose. The latter was the medium of well supported backing, but failed miserably when called upon and tired badly when the crucial test came. Weather conditions this afternoon were anything but ideal. It was cold and top coats were a necessity, while a cloudy sky threatened a downpour any minute. Nevertheless the attendance showed a decided increase over that of the opening day and the play in the mntuel machines was a pronounced improvement. AVord was received by Blair Mock today from Clarksburg, W. Va., that jockey Eddie Smith had been killed at that point. Smith rode with considerable success last winter at New Orleans, Shrcveport and Mobile. The Brookdale Stable has obtained first call on the services of the apprentice Gantner for the remainder of the Canadian racing season. Frank Murphy, who has beeu riding for this establishment all summer, severed his connection with the stable at Blue Bonnets. J. It. Campbell has been notified of his appointment as associate judge at Laurel. The two-year-old Briarcliff is in a bad way, suffering from an abscess as the result of the bite of a spider. Martian came out of his race yesterday in such bad condition that his owner and trainer, Silas Vcitch, has decided to have him destroyed. This is the second juniper in the Veitch stable that has broken down. Veitch purchased Martian last fall at Pimlico from Tim Donohue for 00 and succeeded in patching him up and winning- two races with him. John Whytc and M. Grant were arrivals from Montreal and will remain for a few days. Edward Seagram returned to Toronto tonight. His horses will be shippcdi to Woodbine from here and will go into winter quarters at the conclusion of the Kenilworth meeting. The Canadian Racing Associations have been notified that the suspension imposed on jockey Ycargin by the stewards at Saratoga terminated with the close of that meeting. Yeargin will report to G. R.
