APPLAUSE FOR NICOL AND ALMA DUFOUR. Corrigan Mare, Splendidly Ridden, Runs Another Fast and Game Race at Latonia. Cincinnati, O., July 10. In the mile handicap at Latonia today Alma Dufour ran one of the gauiest and best races of the season. Apparently beaten a furlong out, sheeame on and won in as supreme a test of thoroughbred courage as has been seen In a long time. She was favorite for the race and well backed. Nicol had the mount and he put up a ride that would have been a credit to any saddle artist. The liberal applause accorded him when he came back to the scales was well merited. Cottontown was the pacemaker .for nearly the entire trip. The time for the race was 1:3!. This was fast, considering that the track was at least one second slow. For the second time here this season, a 100 to 1 shot -scored when Minnie Johnson led her company in the second race. She had enough suport from the small sieculators to force the price from 150 to 100 to 1. It was the mares second start at the meeting. She had only gone to the post once previously since the winter season and that was at the Louisville spring meeting. She won a couple of races last winter at Algiers and, although she had been identified, the judges again had her vouched for by reputable turfmen before bets were paid. The defeat of the Corrigan fillies, Catherine II- and Margie, were hard blows to the talent. The victories of the favorites, Outwal and Marsh Redon, helped form followers out to some extent as did also that of Topsy Robinson. For rough tactics in the handicap on Major T. J. Carson, jockey Aubuchon was lined 5 and cautioned by the judges, hi the first race Aubuchon fell with Bedrlce on the way to the post and was stunned. C. Fisher was substituted. Jockey 1. Boland was scheduled for. four or five mounts, including Outwai, but was excused on account of illness. C. C. McCatTerty lodged a protest with the judges against the payment of the purse to Minnie Johnson on the ground that E. E. Pratt was not her trainer, despite the fact that he is registered as such. He later withdrew the protest. Solvent lias been castrated and turned out. Pat Dunne is negotiating for the purchase of Friction.
