The Motitauk Stakes with a very fair
class of twoyearoJds engaged was the
stake feature at Brighton this after
noon This was to have been the day
of the match race and the weather

for the two great horses A heavy east
erly gale was blowing bringing with It
Lsoa mist that would have prevented
taRt time and been much against Me
Chesney unaccustomed no he wan to
those climatic conditions It is Just as
well therefore that the grent rac III
Tho card was a very fair one outside
of the stake and promised excellent
sport to recompense the people for the
disappointment of no match The at

betting brisk
