In the Brewers Exchange Handicap at six furlongs at Latonia today, John Carroll exhibited some of the speed that made him famous as a sprinter last season. He was the favorite for the race and, as It was known that he had worked well for the event, odds of 3 to 2 were eagerly accepted about him. Funiculaire had also been especially fitted for the race and was a well backed second choice. Nicol broke John Carroll away in front from the outside and kept him iu that position, winning easily by two lengths. Funiculaire endeavored to race witli the Corrigan crack along the upper turn, but when turning for home he bad enough of It. Although Austin rode him desperately he could never make serious contention with the winner. He beat Major T. J. Carson easily for second place. These three had all the" best of the send-off. John Carroll scarcely raised a hair and could have run the distance In 1:13 had he been called upon to do so. The net value to the winner was ,745. With ideal weather and an excellent program, the holiday crowd was about the largest of the meeting. Some of the crack two-year-olds came together in the second race. La Veita and Harold D. were the choices, but a lot of money was also bet on Old Honesty, which won rather easily, while Harold D., forced to a hard drive, retained secoud. place from the fast coming La Veita.

Oasis, at 30 to 1, led from start to finish and won easily; "Harding," hard ridden, beatIngiarrettf"Wilson""f6r second place. The weight was seemingly more than Harding could handle. Eugene Elrods daughter, aged 22 years, died this morning after a brief illness. Suzanne Rocauiora was bid up from 00 to 1906.sh00 by C. C. MeCafferty, but was bought in. Monochard, also owned by J. H. Baker, was raised 00 over bis entered price by MeCafferty and. retained.

The badge of Joe Bolts was also taken up. Obert, who rode Belltoone In the sixth race, was kicked while at the post. He was engaged for Ternus In the last race, but was excused and Allen substlluteil.
