April 13.— There was another r;iiny day for the closing program of the Howie meeting, but good contests came out of the seven races as a result of horses of fairly good class making up the fields. The attendance, in spite of a drizzling rain that fell almost all afternoon, was good. The rain did no harm to the going as was evidenced when E. K. Brysons Lenny, a filly that raced at Jefferson Park, equaled the half-mile track record when she ran the distance in :47*r, . The record was established by .1. E. Griffiths Single Foot. This mark came in tne closing feature of the meeting, the Howie Kindergarten Stakes for two-year-olds that brought together some of the smartest f the juveniles that have been showing at the meeting. When Lenny was winner she completed a double for both the E. K. Brvson silks and for jockey Louis Morris. That winning combination had performed in the first race when Mark Master took down a purse. Nine went to the post for the Kindergarten Stakes and of these the Nevada Stock Farm Stable was represented by Jim Bridger and African 1 aisy. while the Greentree Stable had Skavar and Prate. The race was worth ,:W0 to the winner. From a good start Titter and l -nny dash d away from the others and Skavar was cl.se after them, while Prate was not far away. SITS FAST PACK.

I.emnos and Ten Sixty were the ones to set the pace, but Mark Master was never far . BOM* and at the li.ad of the stretch Lemnos tired atid it was a fight all the way home to have Mark Master outstay Ten Sixty. Wild Aster was forced to race on the outside all the way and closed a big gap. but jiit failed t" down the tired Lemnos for. third place. fifteen started in the one mile and seventy j raids of the second race, and C L. Whit-, ini;- Brotherhood proved good enough to foree all the pace and get home winner by a narrow margin over Sam Ixmis Jarry Carroll, with R. T. Bakers Candymaker third. The three mentioned above dominated the race and. while Candymaker did not seriously threaten the first two, he always held third! place safe.

There was a great finish in the seven-«ighth.s mile race for three-year-olds in the third At the end the first three were lapped, with Samuel Boss" Mariner, a former winner at the meeting, first. Frank Kearns Porto Bello Cold second and Bichard T. Wilsons Faddy, showing greatly improved form, third before F. P. Bobies Shup. The Mart was a good one and Crierson, Sallies Valley and Shup raced out in the lead to set a fast pace. Mariner began well enough, but was eased back and that move g.t him into no end of trouble. Maiben was in no partieular hurry with Faddy in the early stages and be permitted him to settle well into his stride before making a move. The leaders were still in dose order on the turn for home, lui* by that time both Porto Bella Cold and Mariner had begun to move up with the Boss colt on the outside. Through the last eighth he disposed of Porto Bello Gold, but l oth of them were forced to do their utmost to withstand the rush of Faddy, which would have undoubtedly won in another sixteenth of a mile. He wa*s just a stride short of heading the Kearns colt for ■aeaai place. l ..lit itnle.l u eighth papt. BOWIE MEETING ENDS Continued from first paoi The Finale Handicap of a mile and seventy yards really created more interest than the Kindergarten and it resulted in a great contest when Polante, from the Nevada Stock Farm Stable, was winner by a narrow mar-sin from C. Francks Priceman. with the Creentree Stables Stirrup Cup a distant third. Arter the finish J. Stevens, who rode Trice-man, lodged a claim of foul against Peternel, who rode the winner, but after a consideration the order of the finish was not disturbed. There is no douht that Priceman had a rough journey, but it was Ehufonl that was guilty of fouling him and not the winner. .*. .
