somewhat dis ¬ appointing in number in comparison with the turnout on opening day and on other occasions occasionsWith With the exception of the opening race for twoyearold maidens the remainder of the program offered was made up entirely of con ¬ tests staged under claiming conditions Some good horses were witnessed in action but there was an absence of any outstanding stars Good sport resulted however with a number of hardfought contests and close and exciting finishes occurring during the afternoon afternoonThe The most important race was the fifth on the card at one mile out of the chute It resulted in an easy victory for the locally owned The Wire Clapper proved second best The Derby Stables Riot took third money The start was a poor ono and W L Drakes Bill Hare was almost hopelessly left at the post He raced far back and could never make up the lost ground as the han ¬ dicap of being away tardily was too great for him The early pace was set by Peggy O and Riot to the stretch turn The AVire and Clapper raced close up under restraint and in contending positions positionsPEGGY PEGGY O SUDDENLY BOLTS BOLTSApproaching Approaching the turn for home Riot began to draw away from Peggy O The latter held on well but suddenly bolted to the out ¬ side on the final turn and dropped out of it The Wire was released from restraint and challenging Riot three sixteenths out quickly took the lead and held Clapper safe when the latter came fast in the final eighth eighthThe The Wire got to the finish an easy winner by a good margin while Clapper got up near the end to outfinish Riot for

showed the way to her opponents from the start and took a long lead approach ¬ ing the stretch Carrie Belle and Maroussia pursued closely while Omnia was also in the wake of the latter pair Supporter began tiring in the stretch racing but continued well to the end though hard urged in the closing stages to save the race when Maroussia finished with a rush and would probably have overhauled the eventual win ¬ ner had the distance been a little longer Maroussia also just managed to beat Omnia narrowly for second money moneyA A good band of twoyearolds held the center of the stage in the third race also a dash of fiveeighths A closely fought con ¬ test was the outcome with Mrs F Farrars Indra slightly in the lead at all stages of the race and the filly managed to hold on long enough in the
