LEXINGTON MEETING ENDS United Verde Wins the Camden Handicap in Easy Style Jockey Jones Makes a Record for forthe the Meeting in Guiding Three ThreeWinners Winners LEXINGTON Ky May 10 C W Clarks handicap crack United Verde repeated his success of the opening day when he won the Ben Ali Handicap by accounting for the Camden Handicap at a mile and a quarter having a net value of 5060 and a valuable trophy donated by Senator Johnson N Cam ¬ den Incidentally it marked the seventh victory that United Verde has scored this year five of his successes having been over the Fair Grounds New Orleans track trackUnited United Verde was conceding weight to all the others that started in the race but it proved no great drawback for the colt was always in a prominent position under hard restraint and when called on in the stretch took the lead and drew away to a cantering victory Surf Rider prominent Kentucky Derby eligible took upon himself the task of pacemaking and he accomplished a good job of it for he showed the way for nearly a mile But he gave way readily when United Verde made liis challenge and the finish found the threeyearold tiring fast but continuing on in game style long enough to outstay the fast coming Blarney Stone for second place Rouleau a stable companion to Surf Rider of which much was ex ¬ pected raced poorly The conclusion of the race was in a heavy downpour which had been threatening for some time timeThe The Camden Handicap featured the get ¬ away day card and contributed toward an ¬ other large attendance The showers dur ¬ ing the night slowed the course consider ¬ ably and the added showers after the fifth race made the going heavy heavyBEST BEST RACING IN TEARS TEARSThe The racing was again interesting as it has been nil during the meeting The sport here this spring even if weather and track conditions proved a bar to the stars com ¬ peting has been the best that has been noted here in years The firm stand of the stewards in refusing to tolerate offenses of riders in rough work has had a salutory effect and caused a decided absence of crowding and tricky work on the part of those jockeys with a penchant for it itResident Resident manager T C Bradley who as ¬ sumed charge here for the first time this spring was highly pleased with the results achieved at this meeting The daily patron ¬ age has been large during the entire meet Ing and in all other respects the results have approached the best former standard standardThe The C T Worthington success that has been so conspicuous all during the meeting held good to the end His representatives accounted for both the twoyearold dashes His Full o1 Fun had little difficulty in the second race leading eleven other young ¬ sters for the entire way to win with much speed in reserve Valoise an outsider landed in second place and Delusive third Ailsie Vernor completed the double in the sixth race Like Full o Fun Jones rushed her into a good lead at once and allowed her to increase her advantage with every stride Poppye was the closest to her most of the race but had to be ridden hard to outstay Miss Claire ClaireFAYORITES FAYORITES FARE WELL WELLBackers Backers of favorites fared fairly well as a majority of the choices succeeded They opened in auspicious fashion when Marimba a previous winner here won the opener in decisive style styleThe The dull showing of The Wit in the third rac was disappointing to a big number who had supported him in rather confident style Fool rode him wide on the turns and gener ¬ ally managed him faultily Nordeck the winner here was the longestpriced one of the afternoon afternoonRagazza Ragazza was another slightly regarded one to surprise when he won the fourth race for which Alameda Girl and Oraleggo were the principally supported ones but failed of even getting a part of the purse purseJockey Jockey II Jones was the outstanding rid ¬ ing star of the afternoon and scored his third success when he broubht Lady Long ¬ fellow home in the closing dash a scant neck before Bond No other rider won three races in any one day during the meeting meetingThe The following celebrities of the trotting turf saw the
