A Disappointing Race
Bookmakers Win Heavily. LONDON, May 27. The Derby, from a spectacular point of view, was disappointing. There was a tedious delay of 21 minutes at the post, and a false start. There was only one untoward event. A suffragette, named Ada Rice, fired a pistol loaded, with blank cartridge at a policeman engaged in clearing the course. The policeman's clothes were burned, and he was injured on the leg. The woman was arrested. Mr Duryea, the owner of Durbar 11., is a wealthy American who wenjb to France and established a stud farm when the Betting Restrictions Act was enforced in New York State. He won the Two Thousand Guineas in 1912, and 12 races worth £15,000 in 1913. | The result of the Derby was a surprise, and the bookmakers had a tremendous win. The crowd was stunned arid silent. Kennymore's Misbehaviour. LONDON, May 28.
Prior to an execrable start, Kennymore behaved like a savage. He lashed out, kicked everything within reach, and set the whole field at loggerheads. The scene eclipsed anything witnessed for a long time. The crowd round the post treated the .pandemonium as a joke, cheering and laughing, which further upset the horses and, delayed the start
