WOODLANDS STAKE VICTORY Wins the Aberdeen Stakes in a Close Finish Mainmast Defeats Valor Havre Havrede de Grace Favorites Still Prove ProveMisplaced Misplaced Choices HAVRE DE GRACE Md April 2G The card which was offered for decision this afternoon was one that catered to the higher grade racers here and furnished spirited and thrilling racing The form backers who have had a dismal failure at this meeting in locating winners again received the worst of the daily battle with the machines and the majority of the winners were of the long priced variety varietyCharles Charles J Craigmile an outsider in the speculation was the winner of the first race of the afternoon a sprint of threequar ¬ ters of a mile from Wraith and Turnabout There was a long delay at the post and when the field was dispatched Balustrade after an absence of two years from the races was the one to show in front He was quickly joined by the winner when entering the stretch Balustrade stumbled and Lang sent his mount to the front Wraith fin ¬ ished resolutely and had but a short margin over Turnabout The latter finished with a rush Panaman flattered by taking a good lead in the stretch but failed to keep it itRal Ral Parrs Esquimau accounted for the Liverpool Handicap a steeplechase over the short course in a spirited finish with Free State and Infidel II The winner was the popular choice in the machines and was rid ¬ den with confidence The race was marred by three falls which fortunately did not re ¬ sult seriously although By Heck limped off the field in apparent poor condition conditionShoal Shoal was the one to make the pace for the first turn of the field when Crawford took Esquimau back He was followed clos ¬ est by Esquimau and Infidel II After en ¬ tering the final turn Esquimau raced into the lead and held Free State safe at the finish The latter raced wide through the final turn of the field but finished with a rush and wore Infidel II down downA A Cuban campaigner Ultimata was the winner of the third race of the afternoon a scramble of five and a half furlongs from Miss Emma G and Fannie Bean The win ¬ ner had a quick start away from the post which really decided the result Ultimata set a fast pace throughout and drew away into a long lead while the remainder of the field were endeavoring to untangle from a poor start Miss Emma G closed a big gap and had the distance been a trifle greater would probably have earned the brackets The winner was neglected in the machines The favorite Long Island had little chance at the start Harry Payne Whitneys Woodland a daughter of Whisk Broom II was returned the winner of the Aberdeen Stakes in a spectacular and driving finish with True Flier and Tall Timber while Wrangle fin ¬ ished a good fourth The race one of the annual spring stake races and at four and a half furlongs was riddled by scratches due to the severe coughing epidemic which has swept over these parts and kept the best of the twoyearolds in their stalls Many of the backers who had looked forward to a battle between Enchantment and Cartoon ¬ ist were doomed to disappointment when both developed ailments Rork from the J l Holland stable Better Luck from the Orleans Stable and H C Fishers second bow Keenan were the other absentees The start found Tall Timber and Woodland be ¬ ginning heads apart while the others were away slowly The pair raced in this manner for the entire distance while True Flier was in behind Adventuress In the final eighth True Flier the Whitney castoff that now races for Sam Harris closed up with a rush and Avas going fastest of all at the end while Woodland just managed to earn the verdict by the shortest of margins Tall Timber tired a trifle in the final drive but had a short margin over the fastcoming Wrangle WrangleEdward Edward F Whitneys Mainmast came back from his successful sprint of earlier in the week and took a band of longer distance performers into camp in the running of the Annesley Purse at a mile and seventy yards with Valor second and Sedgefield third The winner led briefly and was then taken under restraint when Valor raced to the front Mainmast came around the leader on the stretch turn and crowded Valor a trifle in the final sixteenth but won drawing clear Sedgefield was a bangup third Our Flag was away well but failed to hold his advan ¬ tage and pulled up lame Continued on
