The day 'was Just as as Um, one before, but the races were a thousand per cent, bet- ter, In the judges who have gone nada Turf association, declare that nothing superior has been seen by them. Tbey were fast and keenly contested, and the crowd showed its appreciation for the best card of rac- es 01 er on a local track. That tha track was fast, there is no doubt, in. spite of kicks to the contrary. To support the contention that tbe track in good shape, there is a broken Canadian record to refer to, and two local traik performances that have never been equalled.' It was .the six-furlong record for Canadian tracks that went by the boards. The time was and by Marcus, in the some magnificent racing. Buttons took onds, and Dan L. took third in the same manner. The best time was made in this first heat, five horses and their drivers off to- gether in a bunch, and they kept that way. for the first hnK of the distance. Cole always had a slight lead, with Dan L. hard by, and Buttons the third; horse. In the stretch Buttons overtook Dan L. and in the last few- yards plugged w-itb great vigor, fin- ishing about four feet ahead of his rival for second place. C. R. Cole won by only a slight margin... other three horses were not erg for one, two, three positions. Gold King finished fourth. The final heat sa-w some more stel- lar driving, but Cole had tbe race easier. .The horse led all the way, with Buttons at her side for the great- er part of the distance. Dan L. took up third and it was again a race of three horses out of the five that started. They finished without gentlemen's cup oven mi pounds. Beaver took the lead and 'was never headed off. Qrey Cloud came up from tha rear and pass winner In the stretch, and finishing second, with Mazda third. Jockey Gardner "Was fined 525 and suspended for six months for interfer- ing with Mazda, and all bets were de- clared off. In the judge's opinion Gardner was only in tho race to stop Magda, and they therefore waxed ex- ceedinly wrathy thereat. The good said the disposition had horse Grey Cloud looked like the best rived from Belgium, and horse in the race, but he didn't get fully studying them hi up to tha occasion until the there was absolutely no case against home stretch was reached.

They nmsaeo. witnout Bntcred. a break in the same order as before ning event, with four horses entered, for a purse of J300. The other horses In the race were Servetta, 'Elodia B., and Swagerlator. The latter horse opened up the favorite, with Marcus at a fair price in comparison. Some- body shot a heavy wad at Uie books on Marcus, and they refused to take an> more for a. while. The price on Swagerlator was prohibitive at first, but came dtfwn later on to even mon- ej, then soared again. MaTCUs Went to the post even money, with Swager later still ihe choice of the talent, 'though little money was being :bet It was a two-horse race, and was conceded as such a long time before the race. Swagerlater got away with a leaping start, followed by. Servetta and Marcus, Elodia B. bringing up the rear It looked like easy money for Swagerlater, but the horse tired and cpuld'not keep tho lead. .Marcus Trent down the hack stretch like a house afire, overhauled Servetta, and a.t the turn collared awagerlater, and came Into the-hftme. stretch in the lead, winning by a good length. In a hard race and lowering the record Servetta finished liird. The judges told the rider of Syageriater before the race to win, in viftw of aus .plcious circumstances, and that he did so is a matter of conjecture. It keen sport and brought the crowd to its feet.

It was a good race, with the horses well bunched nearly aJl the way. Harness Events The first harness event, pace, or trot, was won by C. R. in a little faster than the pre- vious go. Track Records Go The Frae-fbr-AH trot or pace saw the .track record for the distance blow up.
