Monday is always an off day in racing, and as the weather was very warm there waa a noticeable failing off in the attendance at Washington Park to-day. The track waa roughly harrow-ed, and was not so fast as on Saturday, and was smooth and safe. The racing was very good for the class of horses that started, and I ' the Hungers were kept busy picking the winners. How well they succeeded is told by the fact that three favorites' won out of the seven races. Swamp Fox was tlie favorite for the first race, but Kate Malone. 'who haa been running well up in all her races here, took the lead from Plunder in the stretch and -won handily, with Etruria in tbe place. .Thirteen youngsters went to the post for the second race with Bill Letcher the favorite, and he landed Lis hackers safe after a rattling finish with Harvester. The winner is a son of Longfellow, dam Ida Lewis, and it a highly-promising two-year-old. Edith Gray, a full sister to Jim 'Gray, led off in the race, and made tbe running for a good part of tbe distance. This was her tirst start, and she will no doubt run belter I ber next race. There was no decided favorite for the third race, but Dilemma probably carried the bulk of the money. Abiiene. with the odds of S to 1 aguinst him aa they went to the post, gut off weil at -the start-, and. taking the lead at -once, he was never headed. Lottie S.. with 15 and 'M to 1 against her for a place?, followed him in. None of the others ran any too well, and they were badly scattered out at the lirh. Bonita - was a hot favorite for the fourth race, but her backers Lad the -cold chills all through the run, as she -got cut off and was absolutely lost at tbe Quarter post, hhe went up into thev bunch ih the run to the half, aud was nursed along around the far turn, but when they were well into the stretch she found an opening next to the inside rail, and eutuns Uie old mare loose.1 she came through like a cyclone, and. Just when Guilford looked a sure winner, shot into view, and after a trying finish, she beat Guilford out by a length.
