Is C2 feet in height and 120 feet In

on a slope 200 feet long and 40 feet

that tho breaker machinery can be op

During tho waits Rowdy Joe (2.08),
one of the fastest but most unreliable
performers that ever appeared on the
track, paced against Raven's 2.15 track,
match, pacing record. He wus driven
by H. F. Kldwell and wns paced by
a running mate, Little Frltnd. He
made two attempts, acted badly In
each and failed.
It was the fifth score on tho first
trial before Kldwell nodded for the
word when the horse was on a gait
far below his usual pace. The first
quarter was In 40, the next In 33, the
half In 1.17, the third quarter- 36V: and
1.53, the last qunrter in 33 and the
mile in the slow time of 2.27',2.
Later In the second trial he got off
well after two bad failures and reached
the quarter post In C3'-.. but broke on

start when he reached the wire, but
Rowdy broke again on the first turn
and abandoned the attempt.
