There were nine entries In the 2:30 : trot or pace. Among them was a blind horse , Brit , driven by MeKlllup , which started the fireworks right In the beginning.

Brit wabbles around the track like a drunk man , but his entrance fee was paid and ho prom ised to give a race to the field The broken sulky was taken to the sin- hies and a new one brought out for the first heat. Brit and Wllkes were a pair of bad actors In the scoring The blind horse , when ho started , could not bo stopped and was apt to Jam Into any sulky on the road. "We're afraid , " said one driver. When the race got going , the blind kept hard at It. The heat was won , however , by Rubber Baby in a neck- and-neck finish with Marnnda. It was a fast heat , 2:22 : % . Before the third heat In this race , the judges ordered a new driver be hind Maranda , on the ground that the driver had talked to the driver of Rubber Baby , believing that Maranda had been held In. The driver claimed she has had lung fever and had been training for only six weeks. He called attention to the fact that the Judges were held responsible for the animal The Judges reconsidered , cautioning him to drive out. As Rubber Baby had first money and Maranda second , It was figured the two drivers had agreed not to disturb trie condition by Jarring things. Rubber Baby won the next heat , however , making it three straight and the race. The moneys went : Rubber Baby , Maranda , J. H. A. , Brit. Running Race.
