Weather con ¬ ditions for this afternoons sport at Wash ¬ ington Park showed considerable improve ¬ ment over what it has been this week but the track was heavy and holding which brought about the defeat of several fa ¬ vorites notably in the twin features carded as the fifth and sixth events The latter con ¬ test was won by the Rosedale Stables Bandalore with L Beydas Banish Fear the favorite running second and Mrs John Hertz Our Reigh third thirdOf Of the five threeyearolds meeting at one mile all were fillies save Our Reigh which had been considered a candidate for the American Derby However the latter failed to run like a colt haying a chance in Satur ¬ days special In finishing third he was a length and a half back of Banish Fear a like margin separating the first two The mile was run in 147 147A A larger crowd was brought out by the change in weather conditions and brisk ac ¬ tion in the market was noted for some of the races especially for the two features featuresBanish Banish Fear had the most early speed being closely followed by Bandalore with Our Reigh third in the run down the back stretch Elmer de Perini called upon the Rosedale miss on the turn and she steadily moved forward to take the lead at the stretch turn Thereafter the daughter of Masked Marvel and Lady Carolyn held on gamely to be second as Our Reigh failed to gain through the stretch Hope

finished far in front of Kingsbury Lemont and four others in the Thornton Purse or fifth race for twoyearolds under allow ance conditionsnthe erratic Erin Torch com ¬ pleted a double for Charles T Fishers Dixi ¬ ana stable presided over by Clyde Van JDusen The foul claim by H Tinker who rode the runnerup Kingsbury was disal ¬ lowed by the stewards after brief delibera ¬ tion Tinkers mount was sharply impeded by the winner entering the stretch and in the final eighth drew more abuse from the Dixiana gelding as J Renick who was astride the latter again failed to keep him straight straightIn In spite of the roughing Kingsbury re ¬ ceived a victory for him here would have been a fluke as Erin Torch lost many lengths with a wide sweep on the turn where Pelerine second choice to the win ¬
