Ho had to bo a good colt to win
yesterday. Ho had to show all tho

entitled to a goodly share of tho
credit for the rnco Sea Pirate ran.
Ho never slopped riding whllo there
was a iKj.ialblo chanco of his win

Ho really broke two lengths behind

still. Flags, onu of the speediest
sprinters seen thin season, chased Old
Koenig, but never could get nearer
than a length to him. At tho tlnish
he was staggering from tho pace set,
and ho was .lark Hare Jr., which tin
Ished third. Old Koenig had literally
run their heads off in the Hrst five
furlongs. Jack Haro was an added
starter and regarded as a good thing.
Ho didn't get away In his usual sty'e
