H. C. Hatch, represented by Chickpen and Donstick, took the biggest portions of the purse when his pair, with Chickpen on the ; leading end, went over the line a head be-l fore her stablemate while lapped on the pair , : and, waging a sensational finish, came Park-wood Stables Listaro to take the measure of his running companion, Vingt Cinq. Three others that failed to threaten at any stage followed in the wake of the quartet. The ! Hatch pair ruled prohibitive choices. From the beginning of the feature it was , i : apparent that the Hatch and Parkwood colors were to be in the thick of the con-» , tention when Vingt Cinq and Donstick went . out to set the pace. This- was evidently under orders of the respective trainers and, with Chickpen following at their heels, this j I order was maintained for the better part of the race. Rosesilla was holding fourth | position, not far from the pacemakers, and I I Mann had Listaro behind the Gorman miss j as he led the others. Reaching the final turn, Vingt Cinq was , shaken up in an effort to resist Chickpen, but the Hatch miss was not to be denied, and fought her way to the front inside the j final furlong. In the stretch with Listaro J moving up gamely, the four waged a thrilling . engagement, with Chickpen just lasting ] ! long enough. At the end Donstick was J | beaten a head, with Listaro a nose back, j to lead Vingt Cinq by two lengths. j The J. E. Smallman stable achieved their . : first victory at the present meeting when | | I Feudal Lord swept to a clean-cut victory in j I the decision of the Hamilton, a dash of six c i and one-half furlongs that served as the ; , : semi-feature of the afternoon. This saw five J ! other good sprinters opposing the fleet-1 [ j footed Smallman colt, and it found W. J. Watermans recently acquired Lady Marl-1 1 ; boro following the winner over the line to I j suffer defeat by four lengths, while the ; short end of the spoils went to Lugen Lug-1_ I gage when he took the measure of C. J. Patchetts Meloy. *.
