N Y.. June 27.— Condition* wore anything but agreeable for the racing at Aqueduct to. .ay and frequent showers of t , raia fell all afternoon. The track remained i in good condition until the running" of the fifth race, a hen the showera finally made the | . muddy. The disagreeable weather]. a resulted i:i a number of scratches, but there I. was a surprisingly l.ire crowd out and a ! r;n tag crowd never cares much about the j weather srhen i is entertained. The feature offering was the Canarsie Sell- I , ins Stakes over the five-eighths distance. I j for two-year-olds. It was yorth .tr.i to the! j winn t and fell to Max llirschs good coit | , New Hampshire, a son of Granite and An I, na«;h, which was entered to be sold for I j .00o. Lady Iffyra was the one to show the war i in the early running; hut she could never . draw awu from New Hampshire, and in the , last eighth be shook her off readily an.i ■ cam" on to a comparatively easy success, , though ri;;ht at the end Bands was hustling i , him alone to make the victory certain. it was Anonymous, from the Joseph K | Widener stable, that raced into second place . and at the • nd be was doing exceedingly , well. He was nei er far away at any part | of the running and heid second place per- fectly safe through the last sixteenth. Then Ambler, one that was started from the . Nevada Stock Paras, was up in ample time to beat the tired Lady Myra for the short end of the purse. TsUMBLE 11Y V NOSE. In two of her recent races Thimble was beaten over a muddy track and it was gen- ; orally thought that the going would not be to her liking for the mile and a sixteenth of the ftftb race, but in a gamely fought finish witii Recount she nosed him out. while Sunnyland. the horse to finish third, was a full five lengths farther away. And the mile and a sixteenth was run in 1:46, through going that was .-.apposed to be against the chances of the filly. Prom i good start Recount was first to Show in front. out Sunnyland sprinted by him and opened up a long lead in the first three-quarters. Taplin eased Recount back when the pace became hot. but ho held to second plate and Thimble was rating along back of him. while BxCWSe Me. Knight of the Heather and Two Ft Others followed in the order nasaed This was ihe order almost to the eighth post, when Sunnyland tired badlv and Taplin brought Recount along with a rush on the Inside. Rut at th" same time Thomas closed fast on the outside with Thimble. It was a pretty fight right to the end. where the filly earned the verdict by a nose. Old Naturalist had his opportunity in the six and a half furlong highweight handicap. but he failed again when M. I,. Schwartz three-year-old Toil outfinished him to win by a narrow margin, while the Rancocas Stables William A. beat home Billy Olivers Dexterous by a narrow margin for third. ton uwwmwt VIGOROUS HIDE. Naturalist was on his good behavior and he left the post quickly. Toil went right after himuid the others were in fairly close order, wnh Dexterous and Yankee Star being a bit slow to get away. Shaffer was showing sr eed and Oriole, after being fairly well up. ran out on the first turn and was never afterward in the hunt. Naturalist held command until well inside the final eighth. but he COUld not shake off Toil, and then right at the end the three-year-old gradually wore him down to win under a vigorous ride. William A., after having been outrun early, came with a determined rush to land third from Dexterous, and the Oliver three-year-old had met vita some bad racing luck in the stretch. J S. Cosdens Martingale was winner of the opening five-eighths dash for two-year-olds. It was run in a driving rainstorm, but at that time the track was still fast and the rain was the only handle .p. He began rapidly from the inside position and had speed enough to dominate the running all the way and was two lengths clear at the end. Better Ruck, from the Orleans Stable, was the one to finish second. He began from the outside position and was out there all the way. though it was not much of a handicap and he really had no excuse. Valador. from the stable of William Martin, was third, beating Max llirschs Bo McMillan for that part of the purse. Bo McMillan had a bit of racing misfortune and finisiiea fast when too late. There was no rain for the running of the second race, but for the last seventy yards 1 in the stretch there was a patch that was decidedly sloppy. The race was a mile for platers and Bud Fishers Overtake, racing ; in improved form, was rather a good winner. Making the turn for home the two leaders i went a bit wide while Overtake saved ground. In the last eighth he began to run. It was I when Overtake came to the little patch of slop that he really drew away and at the end he was winner by a couple of lengths. John W. Schorr and his son-in-law, George : Reardon, were visitors at Aqueduct today.
