1 J 1 i ; BOWIE HANDICAP GALLOPS Oceanic s Mile and an Eighth in 3 1 :5 6 2-5 the Most Impressive. Exterminator at nis Best Mad Hatter Also i in Tine Fettle All Ready for Great Race. BALTIMORE, Md., November G. The running of the two Pimlico Futuritys Saturday i was all the line that was needed on the Cup 1 race, for which six of those that shared in i the money Saturday will meet tomorrow afternoon, but there is interest in the training : of the nine that are named for the mile and a half of the 0,000 Bowie Handicap. Several of these were on the track this 1 morning and the most impressive move was j when Gywn Tompkins permitted Oceanic, the . Samuel D. Riddle three-year-old to go along , for a mile and an eighth in 1:56. He ran his first mile in 1:13 and it was only at the end of the work that he was asked to go . along at all. This colt, by his brilliant racing, has shown that he is entirely fit and this ; work was a further indication of his readiness for the mile and a half. Eugene Wayland only had Exterminator gallop along for an easy half mile in 50. His previous work to that was a mile and an eighth in 1:55 Saturday. He is not much of a work horse and such a move means volumes for him. Nedna was brought out and an easy half mile in 55 was all that was required of her. Like Exterminator, her last real work for the Bowie was done Saturday and it was an easy mile in 1:55. Sam Hildreth gave old Mad Hatter a mile in 1:44. He has all his speed and any time he will race kindly he is a hard horse to beat. Unfortunately it is never known just when he will race kindly. James Fitzsimmons sent the Quincy Stables Captain Alcock along for three-quarters in 1:17 this morning. His previous movo to that was a mile in 1:44 on Thursday. This one is another that was never famed as a work horse, but he galloped along as though thoroughly fit. Thimble had her final Thursday when she galloped a mile and an eighth in 1:5S. It would seem that she is shooting high in the Bowie, but she is a good, game filly, equal to a long route. William Garth was content to send J. S. Cosdens Kentucky Derby winner, Paul Jones, along for an easy mile in 1:40 Saturday.
