Racing Crowds COLLINSVILLE 111 June 4 Edward R Bradley had a satisfying revenge for the defeat of Bagenbaggage by Joseph E Wideners Haste last year when his Buddy Bauer under a perfect ride by Albert Johnson took down the second running of the Fairmount Derby this afternoon Just half a length back of the son of North Star III came Harry Payne Whitneys Whiskery winner of the Kentucky Derby and still three lengths further away was Mr Wideners Osmand the gelding with which he had hoped to duplicate the victory of Haste HasteIt It was a great rewenal of the Derby and never was there a more enthusiastic gathering on any race course While the horses were parading to the post the monster crowd broke all bounds and the police were unable to check the rush to the infield that continued until the horses were at the post and almost until the field was charging down the stretch The spacious grounds were crowded to capacity and there was a day of summer warmth to make it an ideal occasion for tho sport sportAnd And while Buddy Bauer proved his qual ¬ ity beyond all question by his sterling vic ¬ tory a measure of praise yoes to Albert Johnson and his faultless Handling of the colt coltWhiskery Whiskery is also entitled to high praise for the reason that he was giving away eight pounds and met with some interference in the running As for Osmand the convic ¬ tion was forced that a mile and a quarter is a bit beyond him for he was tiring badly while Jock after his great showing in the Kentucky Derby quit badly after showing the racingJock way under restraint in the early racing Jock had started once to be an easy winner and Rolled Stocking in two starts since the Kentucky Derby had nosed out Noreaster in a seveneighths mile sprint and had been beaten a nose by Boon Companion over the mile route With such a company it is small wonder that the field had many a favored one with the crowd but Osmand appeared to be more in demand than the others for ho had given Whiskery a stern battle under equal weights at Churchill Downs and he was meeting him today with an advantage of eight pounds poundsRolled Rolled Stocking seemed to be the choice of the big crowd of Kentuckians on hand for it was argued that the son of Pennant had improved considerably since his Ken ¬ tucky Derby performance performanceRACE RACE WORTH 24400 24400Buddy Buddy Bauers success
