THREATENING CLOUDS Have No Detrimental Effect on Attendance at Hawthorne. Another Splendid Gathering Present Red Wingfield Victor in Principal Race. The first real fall day of the season greeted the visitors at Hawthorne Friday, afternoon. A drop in temperature of 25 degrees was welcomed as a great relief from the intense heat of the previous five days of the meeting. A heavy haze overhung the backstretch, making it almost impossible to distinguish colors from the press stand. However, the threatening weather had no effect upon the attendance, a crowd numbering about 12,000 being present and remained throughout the afternoon, taking no heed of the light shower between the first and second races. The racing is growing in popularity and Fridays gathering was even more enthusiastic than that of any previous day. The fourth and feature attraction of the afternoon, carrying a purse of ,000, for three-year-olds and over at a mile and seventy yards, fell to H. C. Keisels stable when its Red Wingfield, under the skillful guidance of E. Petzoldt, the Russian Cossack rider again outgeneraled F. Murphy, on Dantzic, brown son of Bryn Mawr Dance Spirit, owned by T. E. Edwards, in a warm stretch battle by the narrowest of margins. W. C. Weanfs Eulah F., ridden by J. Kederis, gained rapidly near the end to finish third by a three-length advantage. Black Betty, owned by M. Smith and guided by C. Dishmon, ran a good steady race. C. Irbys Sangrado saved ground at the turns and finished going fast. Marine Corps ran poorly, as did War Zone. hard to distinguish colors. The third race on the program, at a distance of three-quarters, was run through a fast-thickening haze, it being al-. most impossible to distinguish colors on the backstretch. End Man, bay son of Black Jester Sun Glow II., proved an easy victor, opening up a wide gap early and holding a commanding advantage throughout. R. Doyle had the mount on the winner, it being his first ride in four days. Toy Miss, owned by J. N. McFadden, close up all the way, was unable to gain on the leader, but outgamed Bond, the veteran son of Ethelbert Boudoir, by a narrow margin for second place. Nenctte was a well-liked one in this field, but did nothing to uphold her support. Cain and Sanford claimed the winner for ,C00. Jockey E. Petzoldt, the leading rider to date, at Hawthorne, increased his lead over the other riders when in the first race of the afternoon he took Delante, bay son of Seth Keep Moving, from the B. F. McCIain establishment, to the front at the three-quarters post and ran away from the others during the stretch racing. Ormont, from the Baxter and Stubbs stable, with J. Kederis up, furnished the most contention, while Mt. Rose, bay son of Buck Shot Perrier, owned by A L. Austin and guided by H. S. Jones, threw his admirers down badly when he fell back into third position at the stretch turn. C. Irbys Van Patrick ran a good race and might have finished in the money but for going wide entering the home stretch. Smiling Maggie and Shoreacres both ran even races, while Rose of Picardy showed little speed. Fitz-Boodle spoiled any chance he might have had when he swerved badly as the barrier arose. Charles Jr. was a distant follower throughout. BEAUTIFUL STRETCH BATTLE. The fifth race, at six and a half furlongs, furnished a beautiful stretch battle between Mary Reigel, from the W. C. Weant establishment, and J. N. McFaddens Betsinda. Dishmon had the mount on Mary Reigel and rode a gallant race to win by three-quarters of a length from the popular E. Petzoldt on Betsinda. R. Doyle kept Lee Enfield well up throughout, but was unable to gain on the leaders. Lina Ciark, the favorite, showed some early speed, but tired after reaching the stretch turn. J. J. Ashe, represented by Marine Corps in this race, took Lina Clark from the stable of Harned Bros. and Jones for ,250. The final race of the afternoon, a claiming race, at one mile, had a field of eight starters. Edna D., a bay daughter of Ballot Sadie S., from the J. H. Murray stable, under punishment nosed out N. W. Grays Jacobina, a brown daughter of King James Galanta, in a thrilling stretch drive. L. Gray had the mount on the winner, with E. Petzoldt on Jacobina again driving his mount hard and showing great horsemanship. Christie Holters, a six-year-old mare from the E. E. Sterrett establishment, was a game runner-up throughout Bonero Blue showed plenty of early speed, but was tiring at the end.
