The Pimlico w Homc-Bred Stakes for two-year-olds, at three-quarters, was the outstanding attraction at Pimlico this afternoon. The condi- 0 of tions called for the starters to be the prop- T rty of the breeder since the foaling. The Rancocas stable Rigel, a son of Ballot Pic- li tons Pride and ridden by L. Fator, was the winner from the Greentree Stables pair Cherry Pie and Solisa. a A well matched field was named and p scratches reduced the bulky over night list to smaller proportions. The start was de- layed for but a few minutes and when the barrier was relased all left in good align- ment. Comixa and Rigel were the quickest to begin, and drew away into the van lapped on each other, while Cherrp Pie was back in 1 the field. Atherstone from the Sanford stable and August Belmonts Amusement were prominent in the early running. Comixa and Rigel were still racing closely i aligned, but when straightened out on the , stretch, the Rancocas representative shook i off Comixa and drew away. Amusement v saved ground at the top of the stretch, while Cherry Pie and Solisa were forced to circle the others to find racing room. Throughout 1 the final eighth Rigel held his opponents I safe, withstanding determined challenges, while the Greentree stable pair got up to earn second and third positions. The race had an added value of ,500, - and from the horsemens standpoint was the best of the day. Racing conditions this afternoon were all , 1 that could be desired. The program, a thoroughly good one, brought together well-matched lields, which produced spirited rac- -ins. Juveniles were catered to in a lavish man- 1 ner, the first three races being for the J youngsters. W. R. Coe provided the winner of the opening dash when Pow Wow came from behind the pace and was drawing away at the end. The Quincy Stables Pettifogger was second and the Rancocas Stables "Whirlwind third. The winner was ridden by Callahan and attracted but mild support in the wagering. 1 rO"V WOW HOME FIRST. The start found the field leaving in good alignment and "Whirlwind and Noel were the ones to establish the early running, while Bradleys Toney and Pow Wow were next in line, and the others well bunched. The pair out in front raced head and head i until where the bend was reached and the McLean starter began to tire. Pow Wow ; circled the leaders, with Bradleys Toney slipping through on-the inside. Pettifogger was slow to find his racing legs and was back in the ruck. Whirlwind tired in the tinal sixteenth when challenged by Pow Wow, while the latter drew clear. The II. P. Whitney silks, which have not been prominent at this meeting, were carried to victory in the second two-year-old dash when the diminutive Thomas guided Gadfly home to win from Crochet and Scarlet Bugler. The winner "was away poorly and was badly outrun in the early stages, but when sent after the leaders raced them into defeat in the final eighth. Scarlet Bugler was a forward contender at all stages, but went wide at the stretch turn and failed to get up for second place. Crochet displayed a brilliant flight of early speed, but could not withstand the rush of the winner. Dominique, the fast sprinter that races in the silks of the Allies Stable, gave further and convincing evidence that he is one of the fastest horses in the country at a short distance when he established a new track . record for the three-quarters distance in the Equity Handicap, which brought together a good band of crack sprinters in the fourth race. Knobbie took second place for the Rancocas Stable in the final stride from H. P. Whitneys Crocus. The latter was making her first start in some time and established a dazzling pace during the early racing. Dominique began a trifle slowly in the walk-up start and was racing in fifth position, but on the outside of the others. Crocus was still leading the field when the turn for home was reached when Lyke brought Dominique up with a rush. In the final eighth the latter disposed of the leaders and was drawing away at the end. Knobbie just got up to nose out the tiring Crocus. The winner ran the three-quarters in 1:11, which reduced the old mark, held jointly by Knobbie and Exodus, one-fifth of a second. The Forest Park Handicap, at a mile, served to attract a good band of racers and Continued on eizhtlf pase. I j ! 1 1 ; ! . . j j ; j 1 I j I j I . ! j j ! I I I !

Dinna Care, racing for the Glen Riddle Stable, was returned the winner from the Greentreo Stables Exodus, while the Salu-bria Stables Knot was third. The winner was a prominent factor from the start and at the finish had something in reserve to withstand the challenge of Exodus. Copper Demon, racing for O. B. Akers and ridden by Sande, was returned the winner of the Timonium Purse, which was a mile and an eighth race, under selling conditions, in a mild drive from Clansman, while Lu-netta was third. The winner was kept well up with the pace which was established by Lunetta and Clansman in turn. Rounding the bend Sande, on the winner, made his move and swinging for home he lost much ground, while Clansman hugged the inner rail. Copper Demon closed fast under pun- ishmenf. and after getting to the leader at the sixteenth post drew away. Dresden fell lame in the race and will be out of racing for the remainder of the year. A. V. Thomas has announced that he will ship from here to Dade Park, Ky., and thence to New Orleans. Fred Hopkins will take over three or four horses to race for H. P. Whitney at the coming meeting at Marlboro. Jockeys M. Fator and W. Martin were each suspended for three days for disobe- dience at the post. James McClelland, manager of the Lexing- ton Stable-Zalapa Farm strings, was unde- cided as to where he would, winter. There are but few horses in the stable and he may decide to race at New Orleans. There are but two yearlings at the farm, but fifty weanlings and eighty-six brood mares. Entries for the inaugural handicap at Marlboro will close at the secretarys office at Pimlico on Friday.
