0RM0NT1ME IS VICTORIOUS Overtakes Southland Toy, Then Draws Away at Thistle Down. Flageolet and Donate Tire After Test for Early Lead Madges Fellow Wins From Marcella Agnes. CLEVELAND, Ohio, Aug. 7 Ormontime carried the purple silks of M. C. Rush to a handy victory in the fifth event, which attracted the most select field at Thistle Down Park this afternoon. Jockey L. Wilson sent the winner up with a well timed rush rounding the turn for home and overhauling Southland Toy when a furlong out he drew away as he neared the end. Southland Toy was easily best of the others the way the race was run. Donate and Flageolet killed one another off forcing too fast an early pace and Who Win outlasted Donate for third. Flageolet, the public choice, dropped completely out of contention during the last quarter-mile under a poorly judged ride. Favorable conditions prevailed at the outset, but rain threatened nearing the close of the afternoon. The attendance was up to the standard for an off day. It being Ladies Day, the fair sex attended in large numbers. The racing was spirited, featured by close and exciting finishes. Closing up courageously after going half the trip in the fourth race, Madges Fellow overhauled Marcella Agnes when a furlong out and drew away into a clear lead nearing the end. Marcella Agnes retained second from Big Storm, which closed a tremendous gap. Going to the first turn Goodestone stumbled and all but unseated his rider which ruined his chances. Taking command at once, Silver Wave was never headed during the running of the second event. Bill Lutz and Flag Maiden forced the early pace, but were tiring at the end and doing their best. Bill Lutz outlasted Flag Maiden for second place. Mrs. R. C. Clarks Cherry Time, a recent arrival from Latonia, made her local debut in the initial dash and led throughout. It was only by a slight margin, however, that the Flight of Time colt lasted to earn the verdict. Owen Martinez came with a brilliant rush on the outside in the stretch and finished fastest of all. Adder was a factor from the start and finished a close third. Another rousing finish developed with the running of the third race. Seths Queen wrested the lead from Princess Trash rounding the stretch turn, then withstood a bold challenge from Margaret Parker, but was doing her best at the end to stall off the fast-finishing Suneur. Evergreen Lad came from far back to beat the others home for the minor award.
