Careful, added further laurels to her 1 excellent record and scored her fifth straight victory of the fall season when she accounted for the rimlico Serial Weight-for-Age Handicap No. 1. the P stake feature of the opening day program at Pimlico t this afternoon. The Kane-ocas Stable took down the in second portion of the stake with Knohbie. while J. K. L. Ross Billy Kelly was third. The race was one of the best of the day from a spectators a at point of view and the comely daughter of Wrack s Mindful was welcomed back to the judges stand r with prolonged .cheers. n The start was a good one and there- was no v lengthy delay at the post. Careful, under hustling riding by Rutwoll. was rushed to the front, while a Sonde had Knohbie right on the heels of the Sal-inon starter, with Billy Kelly and Smoke Screen following In the order named, while Oeorgie had a commanding advantage over .Teg. The two leaders " raced heads apart for the greater part of the race 1 arid "Knohbie was a short head in front when they swung into the stretch. Careful, which had raced on the outside throughout, responded with her cus- tomary gameness under punishment and regained the lend, holding the Rancocas nicer safe through I th final sixteenth to win by a scant half length. I Billy Kelly was second choice in the betting, but t wa outrun throughout and never seriously threat- t ened the leaders. The race was three-quarters of 1 a mile and, considering the state of the track, 1 Carefnls time of 1:13 was exceptionally good. 1 " Racing at rimlico this afternoon was ushered in under any but auspicious conditions. Rain. which fell in copious quantities yesterday, last aiight and this morning, left the going in wretched j condition and was -responsible for the liberal ap- plication of the blue pencil. Those, however, which faced the starter were well known for their mud- running abilities and interesting sport on the whole resulted. The card was an exceptionally good one despite the many withdrawals. Atmospheric ion- ditions cleared off before the bugle sounded bring-ing the horses to the post in the opening dash and a , crowd of good proportions was on hand to wel- 1 come the thoroughbreds back to the Hill Top course. ST. HENRY MEETS DEFEAT. Apart from the stake attraction, a race that attracted considerable attention from the spectators, was the running of the Pikesville Purse. This dash "was for two-year-olds and served to introduce to Marylanders some of the probable starters in the Pimlico Futurity. St. Henry, hitherto unbeaten in bis previous starts, was forced to suffer defeat when J. S. Cosder.s Good Times and E. F. Whitneys Caretaker raced home ahead of him. St. Tlehry was the pronounced choice, with but scant attention paid to the other starters. Caretaker and , Good Times were the first to show in front when the barrier was released, while Champlain was well up and St. Henry, starting from an outside position, was on the outside of them. : Caretaker was outrun before the field had gone ! a half mile and Fa tor sent St. Henry to the leader. Hounding the stretch turn lie went wide, while ! Morris, on Good Times, hugged the rail with the Cosden representative and increased his advantage ! through the final sixteenth. Caretaker came wide ; nt the stretch turn, closed resolutely and held St. Henry safe at the end. The latter failed to respond 1 when" struck with the whip in the stretch and might : have been short. Four of the original ten entries remained away when the bugle called the horses to the post for the ! opening race, a dash of three-quarters, for maiden i two-year-olds. The Quincy Stables All Over and I J. K. Li. Boss Finery were held best of the remaining six, hut both were forced to follow home the s Sweep colt Doughnut. The latter raced on the ! outside of the leaders and after Finery tired moved I up into the lead and held All Over safe in the final I eighth. The winner paid 3.10 for in the 5 mutuels. STEEPLECHASE TO WIDENER ENTRY. The Inaugural Steeplechase resulted in an easily : achieved success for the .T. K. Widener stable. Sea i Skipper and Vigilante carrying the popular Philadelphia - sportsmans colors into first and second 1 places, while J. W. Beans Peccant, the favorite, . was third. The Widener pair dominated the running : throughout and were never in danger. Peccant t Jumped well, .but raced wide most of the way and I failed to threaten the leaders. A big field started in the third race, which i catered to platers at threc-qquarters of a mile. . Tliis dash also marked an upset for the talent t when Camouflage was winner from Halu and Vulcanize. - The winner displayed good speed in the e going and outlasted his opponents through the final I drive, although he went wide at the stretch turn. . Turnabout, which began slowly in the race, showed 1 a good performance and finished courageously. The e winner netted a handsome dividend for the usual 1 investment. The race witnessed a change of ownership - in which G. F. Foreman secured .Halu via the e claiming route for 2,715. Bunga Buck made good in the running of the e sixth race, which brought together some good 1 platers. He beat Registrar and Bluffer. Bunga Buck and Registrar were the ones to race forwardly y the first part of the race, but the Dattncr starter r proved tbo best at the distance and won with Ii Kneed in reserve. He was neglected in the speculation - in favor of Billy Mclaughlin. The latter showed a dislike for the going and performed dismally.

I WINS FIVE STRAIGHT RACES Continued from first page. and a sixteenth, resulted in a thrilling finish, in which the Sunnyland Stables Slippery Elm outlasted My Dear by a nose, while Boniface was third. The start, which was a good one, witnessed the alertness of jockey Gantner when he got the son of Bannockburn away quickly, which, displaying good speed in the going, sprinted into an easy lead. He was pursued by another light-weighted starter. Light Rose, while Boniface was leading My Dear, with Bridesman bringing up the rear. There was a general closing up rounding the far turn and when entering the homestretch Boniface slipped through in the inside, while Slippery Elm went a trifle wide. My Dear ran a remarkable race, was forced for the greater part to race on the outside of her opponents, and she, just failed to get up in the closing strides.
