FINE RACING AT WINDSOR a Carmenclale Beats IViiss Jemima in Fast-Run Contest. Metropolitan Purse a Thriller from Start to Finish Double for Ross Stable. "WINDSOR, Ont., July 19. For todays entertainment at the popular Windsor Jockey Club course the Belle Isle Handicap -was the chief offering. It brought into conflict seven exceptionally fast horses and the big crowd present saw Carmandale run the three-quarters in 1 :ll4f, to beat Miss Jemima by a length and a half, with Dr. Hickman in third place only a neck in advance of Mercury. The start was an excellent one, the field leaving the post in perfect alignment. Car-mandaie, right now in his best form, quickly dashed to the front and remained there. Dr. Hickman was in closest pursuit and his most dangerous rival during the early stages. Miss Jemima was content to race in third place and was seemingly under restraint, while Mercury, Baby Grand, Tippity Witchet and Minute Man followed in the order named, all but the last mentioned being within striking distance. Oarmandale never changed his stride and , soon had Dr. Hickman tired out trying to catch him. After Miss Jemima momentarily seemed to tire she came again in the stretch and, passing Dr. Hickman, earned second place in the last few strides, without, however, menacing the winner, which had a safe margin at the end. The race was a true run one, stubbornly contested and a delight to the spectators, who voiced their approval by much cheering and applause for the vanquished as well as the victor. Incidentally It was the third straight success for Car-mandale. The Ross stable scored a double with Lilt and Hallucination and was just nosed out o. another victory when Finery was beaten by Fair Gain in the Metropolitan Purse, run as the fifth race. FAIR GAIN BY A OSE. The latter contest was the best of the afternoon from a racing standpoint. It was a thriller from start to finish and only the judges could separate the first four horses as they dashed across the winning line. When the numbers were posted it was seen that Fair Gain had been awarded first place, with Finery second, Duke John third, less than a half length separating them, and By Jiminy was right at their heels. The first Ross victory came in the second race when Lilt, a daughter of Spanish Prince II. Melody, ran away from Heeltaps, Sympathy and three other two-year-olds that made up the field for the Butterfly Purse, a dash of five-eighths of a mile, for fillies exclusively. While Sympathy and Heeltaps were racing each other into defeat Claver kept a restraining hold on the Ross filly, with the result that when the stretch was reached the first mentioiicd two wero exhausted and Lilt passed them easily to win by four lengths. Again in the third race the Ross colors were in front. This was the Dominion Juvenile Handicap, for two-year-olds bred in Canada, in which the Ross pair, Hallucination and Prismar, enjoyed the confidence of the public to such an extent that the entry was backed to the exclusion of anything clso in the race. Hallucination, despite his 124 pounds, proved easily best. Claver kept him within striking distance of the leaders until entering the homestretch, where he moved up with a rush and drew clear in the last eighth. He was three lengths in advance of Anaprisa at the finish, the latter outgaming "Vespra for second place in the last few strides. riETEDS 2fO LONGER A 5IAIDEX. The French-bred colt Pietrus, carrying the silks of J. W. Bean, the Washington sportsman, earned his first brackets on the turf when he accounted for the opening dash of the afternoon. He showed the way throughout, but was tiring at the end and it required some vigorous riding on the part of H. Stearns to get him home ahead of Hamet, from George J. Longs barn. The latter was gaining rapidly and would have won in a few more strides. Radical was third, after closing a big gap from a slow beginning. Threatening weather prevailed for racing at Windsor this afternoon, but a crowd of good-sized proportions was on hand to witness the sport. The track had dried out considerably and was in much better condition than yesterday. Hallucinations victory this afternoon was a clean-cut one, but proved costly to the Ross stable, for jockey Claver was suspended for the remainder of the meeting and his suspension was referred to the Canadian Racing Associations to be extended ten days.
