KENTUCKIANS TO FORE i Capture Five Out of Six Races at Oriental Park. 1 Sparkling Finishes Mark Fridays Racing Jockey T. Brothers j Bides Three Winners. HAVANA, Cuba, December 1. The card at Oriental Park this afternoon was framed to suit the poorer class of horses. While the fields were of ordinary caliber, stirring contests were in order and the sport proved interesting. The first four races were sprinting dashes, while the last two were at longer distances. Prices on the majority of winners were extremely liberal. Racing conditions were ideal and a large crowd turned out to witness the sport. P. M. Bay saddled the winner of the opening dash when he sent Sunsini to the post, ridden by Obert. Sunsini came from behind at the stretch turn to beat Billy Bern by a half length. Kentucky owners furnished the winners of the other five contests They began with Spods in the second, trainer Goss having the three-year-old in prime condition. He was ridden by R. McDermott and after racing Good Enough into defeat easily drew clear and won by a comfortable margin. THRILLrXG STRETCH DUEL. EL Herdels Superior was extensively backed in the third race, but ne was forced to bow to the prowess of Black Top. It was a corking contest from start to finish. Black Top led all the way, but never got farther than a half length from Superior. Stride for stride the pair fought it out and Black Top managed to outlast the favorite after the hardest kind of a last eighth drive. Another sparkling finish came in the fourth race, in which Dad outgamed Stonewall, while Old Sinner, the odds-on favorite, quit badly, to finish fourth after a brief display of speed. Only four contested the mile and fifty yards of the fifth race and after Nig gave way to Marie Augusta in the last quarter, the latter drew clear right at the end. Nig might have won with a better ride. The Pirate was immeasurably the best in the concluding dash and won in a canter by seven lengths. He was ridden by T. Brothers, which incidentally marked the third straight victory of the day for that jockey. Three cars of horses are due to arrive at Oriental Park next Monday. The shipment embraces fifty horses, the property of various owners. Frank Frisbie, twelve; TV. V. Casey, eight; Archie Zimmer, four, and K. Karrick four.
