Scratchings were very nu merous throughout the afternoon, and only five out of thirteen started for the Hurdle Race, called the Fixed Deposit Handicap. The money put on Dinyah by the majority of baclkers certainly was a 'fixed deposit,' infact, it is fixed for all time. Dinyah was at 6 to 4, Gay Hamp ton 7 to 4, and Contorp 3 to 1. Gay Hampton and Contorp made the pace hot, and Dinyah stayed behind most of the way, moving up a bit six furlongs from home, but he went back again and ran a moderate third to Contorp and Gay Hampton. G. K. Phillips rode the winner a game race. Ten out of nineteen were scratched for the Customers Handicap, 'six furlongs, and Curry, with J. E. Pike on top, was favorite at 3 to 1, M...
