FIREBRAND FIRST AT LAST Gives Brilliant Jester Weight and a Beating at Windsor. Lilt Proves Herself an Extremely Fast Filly in Winning the Main Race of the Day. WINDSOR, Ont., August 21. J. K. L. Rosss Lilt, daughter of Spanish Prince Melody, and ridden by Clarence Turner, had no difficulty in winning the Belle Meade Purse, which was offered as the feature attraction this afternoon. Back of her finished Tycoon, while third money fell to Bucado. The field which faced the starter was representative of the best two-year-old3 stabled in this locality. Lilt was away from the barrier quickly and, showing great speed, easily drew away into a long lead. Tycoon tried to catch her in the early running, while Bucado was but a little distance back of him. After entering the stretch Lilt was taken under slight restraint and won in a canter. Tycoon came again and displaced Bucado, which had headed him on the outside. Lilt ran the five and a half furlongs in 1:054 and a good filly. ROYAL OAK TO FIREBRAND. After many attempts in these parts Jefferson Livingstons Firebrand made good in the running of the Royal Oak Handicap, which was at a mile and a sixteenth, and at the end had a length advantage of Brilliant Jester, while John Finn was third. Pool, who had the mount astride the winner, was content to save him and elected to make his drive after entering the stretch. Firebrand responded resolutely and wearing the Seagram Stables starter down was going away at the finish. John- Finn outstayed Spanish Maize for the short end of the purse. Firebrand was a popular choice and brought the second victory for jockey E. Pool. Racing conditions this afternoon were all that could be desired and the weather showed a falling off in the oppressive heat of early last Aveek. The track was in splendid condition and spirited racing prevailed throughout. Some of the speculators took exception to the placing of the judges in the third race, which was for Canadian-breds, when Gallipot and Thorny Way were noses apart at the end. Gallant Groom was third. The finish was a close one, one horse cn the outside and the winner closer to the rail and the judges placed Gallipot first. Howls and jeers greeted the placing and a crowd of several hundred swarmed about the judges stand, but were quickly dispersed. LUNETTA CROWDED OUT. Jockey M. Anderson was responsible ftr the defeat of Lunetta when he crowded over with Gray Gables and knocked her sideways when going to the first turn of the mile and an eighth race, which was gathered in by Jouett. The latter was ridden out at the end to outstay Gray Gables, which was brought wide on the stretch turn and, with more intelligent riding, might have won. Crack o Dawn was the early pacemaker and he was pursued by Jouett. The closest fit of the afternoon came with the running of the opening dash, which was at three-quarters, for two-year-olds, and in which Ethel Clayton, Van Patrick and Briand swept under the judges stand noses apart, with the winner undecided until the official placing was displayed.
