CAPTAIN SCOTTS LAST RACE Cut Down in Prince Edward Hotel Handicap and Ss Destroyed. Victory to Diadema Record Crowd Sees Final Days Racing at Kenilworth. WINDSOR. Ont.. July 29. Diadema, the chestnut daughter of Marathon Samura, ridden by Ambrose, was returned the winner of the Prince Edward Hotel Handicap, which featured the closing days card at Kenilworth Park this afternoon, scoring in an easy manner from Edward Glasscos Bex Gaiety, while Salvo, from the G. M. Hendrie stable, was third. Ajom, which was coupled with Diadema as the J. IC L. Ross entry, was fourth. The race, which was a dash of a mile and a sixteenth for Canadian-bred three-year-olds and over, to which ,000 had been added, brought out a representative field. The biggest disappointment of the race was the failure of the Thorncliffe Stable pair. Captain Scott and Push Pin, which were installed as prohibitive choices, and which failed to gather any portion of tho stake. Captain Scott was eliminated at the start when he was bumped by Diadema, while Push Pin could not get to the leaders. Trainer F. Schelke after examining Captain Scott following the running of the Prince Edward Hotel Handicap despaired of saving the colt. Captain Scott was jumped on rounding the first turn and a tendon cut in two. Examination by veterinary surgeons held out but little hope and he was later destroyed. Captain Scott was in trouble rounding the first turn and again on the backs tretcli. Ambrose, who was astride Diadema, saved ground rounding the first turn and once in the lead took a restraining hold upon his mount and rated her in front of the others. Salvo and Rex Gaiety were the ones to race in closest pursuit, while McTaggart had succeeded in getting Captain Scott into more trouble before the field had rounded into the backstretch. Ajom was racing well on the outside, while Diadema continued in the van and when rounding the far turn under slight urging drew away from her opponents. Salvo and Rex Gaiety tired, while Aquatic moved up next to the inner rail. Captain Scott was still bringing up the rear, while his stablemate had but a slight advantage over him. HOT FIGIIT FOR SECOXD PLACE. When settled in the stretch for the final eighth Diadema easily drew away, and was again taken under restraint, to win in a canter by a wide margin. The best part of the race was the struggle for second honors, which fell to Rex Gaiety by the slightest of margins. The time of the race was 1 : 17ls. Diademas victory, netted the J. IC L. Ross coffers the sum of ,400, which placed the stable away in the van as the leading money winner at the meeting. Racing came to a close at Kenilworth this afternoon and a crowd of record breaking proportions was on hand to witness the final days sport. The program, which was built about the feature race, was a good one and served to bring out well-matched fields that were productive of spirited racing. The weather was hot and clear, while the track was in superb conditions. The colors of John E. Madden were prominent during the afternoon and supplied two of the days winners, Curland and Citation. The former was ridden by Buxton and easily held a band of two-year-olds safe at five and a half furlongs. Who Knows Me took second place, while Marie Blanche was third. Citation, ridden by Ambrose, came from behind and took a large band into camp at seven-eighths. Both winners were accorded extensive support, although Curland was a receding favorite. ANTICIPATE IN TICIIT FINISII. The closest finish of the afternoon came in the second race at seven-eighths, in which Anticipate, well ridden by Buxton, got up in the final strides to win from the favorite, Ballynew. Ring Rose was third. Clyde Phillips has taken over Sagamore and Tricks for James Arthur to be raced at Hamilton in addition to his own stable.
