FLYAT WINNER OF HANDICAP Newmarch Racer Demonstrates Victory at Devonshire Was Not a Fluke Circulet Surprises. WINDSOR, Ont, July 26. Coming back with another successful effort, Flyat, the good three-year-old son of Flying Ebony, which races for W. I. Newmarch, showed that his winning triumph on closing day at Devonshire Park was no fluke when he scored over the best handicap performers quartered at Kenilworth Park to account for the Woodstock Handicap, which featured the Wednesday program. Opposed by seven others, Flyat, under a brilliant ride by J. McCoy, was victorious in a severe drive over Mrs. J. JBadames Khorasan, while third was annexed by Mrs. H. Pynes Frumper when he just lasted to take the measure of Mrs. C. O. Iselins Flighty Anna, which led the four others that included the top weight Broadway Lights, Stealingway, Chatmoss and Espinetta. Moresoris, from the C. E. Drummond stable; provided an upset in calculations when he scored over To Arms, Nada and six others that met in the five and one-half furlongs of the opening race. Beaten off in his last start, the C. E. Drummond juvenile showed to better advantage when he followed along at the heels of Nada and To Arms, which set a rather smart pace. Coming around the outside and strongly handled by .Remillard after moving into command a furlong from the finish, the Drummond gelding stuck to his task gamely to register by a half length. To Arms saved second place by three lengths and the faltering Nada outstayed Kievex, which took the measure of the four others. Home-bred sprinters of the lowly grade matched strides in the second race and once again a surprise resulted when N. McLebds Mythical Lore turned back seven others that opposed her. Neglected in the speculation, Mythical Lore received splendid handling by jockey J. Pollard. She moved through i on the inside of the faltering Sabana and Pertoxical when straightened into the home stretch, gradually forged to the front as she neared the finish and was over the line to score by a. length. Pertoxical, after indulging Sabana with the leadership for more than half of the journey, stuck it out readily to earn second by a half length. Sabana, i in saving the minor end, was just a length in advance of Freethinker. The favored contestant for this was Khaki John, of the Thorncliffe Stable. A failure on previous occasions, Khaki John was never in a contending position after he caused some delay at the start and then broke poorly while in the hands of a ground man. Eight sprinters of the home-bred division were again engaged for the third race, which was a split of the second. In this Circulet, from the M. Keeling stable, second choice in the wagering, scored a front running triumph at the direct expense of the well backed Heap Good, from the W. I. Newmarch stable. In a close finish for third Bethankful, in the silks of the Mountain Rose Stable, took that part of the spoils from Bald Crest. Ridden well by F. Dougherty and showing his best brand of speed, Circulet dashed to the front and, racing in the firmer footing, the Keeling veteran was never seriously menaced for the leadership, although being forced to a drive approaching the finish to score by a length and one-half. Bethankful, closing in resolute fashion after being far back at one stage of the race, was beaten a neck for second. Bald Crest was in front of the four remaining starters after going along at the heels of Circulet in the first five furlongs.
