There was a pony race at Clyde Park on Saturday afternoon; for the half-mile dash the following ponies, belonging to members of the Harvard Polo Club, appeared : Redskin, ridden by Mr. Bird; Spotted Tail, ridden by Mr. Belmont; Pale Face, ridden by Mr. Wilson, and Papoose, ridden by Mr. Dickey. After a good send-off, Redskin and Spotted Tail soon showed to the front, and by the time the back-stretch was reached, had opened a lead of several lengths over Pale Face, who was a length ahead of Papoose. Down the backstretch the horses went in the same order, with Spotted Tail lapping Redskin, the others having lost some distance. Rounding the turn, Spotted Tail overhauled Redskin, headed him and opened distance, coming down the homestretch and finishing under the whip a clear length ahead. Meanwhile Papoose overtook Pale Face, and ran a good third to finish. Time was not taken.
