I IMPROVEMENT AT DORVAL , • Decided Change in Weather Conditions Results in Increased Attendance. MONTREAL, Qne June 24 .— There was a ! decided change in climatic conditions at | I Dorval this afternoon, which was welcome j j relief from the incessant rains of the last I I few days, when the sun cast a warm heat i over the locality. The track had not re- i covered from the drenching and todays I ! strip was a heavy, sticky mass. Despite the absence of a feature race the fields that contested each contest were well balanced and keen finishes resulted. The best of the j j afternoon was the two-year-old dash, at five- j eighths, in which Kimball Patterson furnished , the winner with B. Hardings Patchwork. I This miss displayed a liking for the going j I and outran her opponents from the start, , but was sharply hustled along by Stirling through the final eighth to win from the fast I J closing KImer Dyer. Illusionist was a good I j i but tiring third. | The warm weather had a decided effect on I the attendance thi3 afternoon, a decided increase being noticeable. The public went ; astray in locating the winners, as the ma-jority j of the victories returned good-sized i ; dividends for the usual investment. ! The outstanding attraction of the days rac-Ug j was the riding of jockey Stirling, who j scored four victories, Chow in the opening | dash, Raa in the third, Patchwork in the I fourth and Franc Tireur in the sixth. Chow scored a victory for his new owner, | ! ; H. Herdel. in an easy manner from Al and I ! Jago. The winner came from behind tho leader, Jago, and after a brief tussle drew clear. Kager lOyes furnished an upset when she proved best in the second to win by a safe margin from Waac and Perigourdine. Ran supplied another upset in the third race when he defeated the stoutly supported The Decision and Fort Churchill. The latter j I flattered his backers in the first part, but i I quit badly and finished in the ruck, while j i place. Straight Shot was up in time to take second j | A. Swinke kept up his winning perform- | ! ances when Austral was a victor in a i dash over a long distance of ground in an ! easy manner. Widow Bedotte took second j place, with Miles S. third. The winner, as usual, came from behind and in the race through the stretch shook off hia opposition i i and drew away. Widow Bedotte had a short j | margin over Mils S. at the finish. FOUR WINNERS FOR STIRLING. Stirling brought his score up to four when he was successful with Franc Tireur in the I sixth race, a dash of a mile and seventy i i yards, in which he defeated Archive and Al i ; Pierce. The latter ran out and finished next i to the outside rail. Jockey Huntamer scored his first victory | since his fall at Tijuana last winter when he brought home Rouen first in the closing ; dash. ; Harry Giddings will ship from here to I i Hamilton tonight.
