track condition the blue pencil was much in evidence the only race not affected by withdrawals be ¬ ing the third thirdThe The fourth race styled the Albany Claim ¬ ing Purse attracted the best field

Candy Maid which scored by a clear mar ¬ gin over Cloud Sweeper from the Brann castle establishment Character from the Jersey Stable on the strength of his well known liking for the soft going was in
