TAKES KINDLY TO RUNNERS Toledo Meeting Opens With a Fine Attendance and Good Racing. TOLEDO, Ohio, August 14. Thoroughbred racing was inaugurated at Fort Miami Park here this afternoon under the auspices of the Toledo Jockey Club. The track proper, an excellent mile, was in fast condition, the weather pleasant and a crowd of about 5,000 turned out to witness the , sport. The introduction of the runners incidentally was most favorably received and the majority of the races were productions of exciting stretch struggles and close finishes. Probably the most thrilling finish of the day came with the running of the third race, in which Lenieve just got up to earn the verdict in the closing strides. The first six horses were in a compact bunch when passing the winning line in this race. JOCKEY McCLAINS DOUBLE. B. F. McClain, who saddled Lenieve, incidentally made it a double, as he captured the initial race with Delante, after Corto and Miss Jane had contested the leadership closely until well inside the final eighth. After being carried extreemly wide in the stretch drive Miss Crestwood proved good enough to capture the third race after a game drive through the final eighth. First Consul and Marion Hollins provided another tight fit in the fourth race, the former proving best in the final drive. Penwell scored easily in the sixth race after being outpaced to the stretch. Several horses changed owners at private sale previous to the opening of this meeting and raced in the colors of their new owners today, among them Happy Buxton for A. K. Miller, Midian for E. Rice, Puzzle for W. J. Marlman and Co., King Worth for A. Montgomery, Deuces Wild for R. Lasey and Advance for R. D. Cassels.
