PASADENA WINS BY A NOSE. TAKES DECORATION HANDICAP FROM MIKE SUTTON IN LAST STRIDE. Clean Cut Victory for Vincents Horse Gold-proof Captures the Sprint Handicap-Favorites Fare Better. Cincinnati, 0., July 4. Racing at Latonia today was healthy. The program was a good one, with the Decoration Handicap and an overnight handicap, botli of which had filled with the best horses at the track, as features and the holiday crowd was of overflow proportions. Twenty-one books were In line and it was nil tney could do to handle the money. Pasadenas victory in the Decoration Handicap, considering the fast pace and the weight concessions he was asked to make, was In-line with his per-f romance in tlie Queen City Handicap and gives him rank as tlie best handicap horse now racing in tlie west. Cherry rode Pasadena faultlessly. While the running Of the race was spirited for Tile entire trip, there was considerable crowding In the early stages, which caused several among the rqar guard to fail to show to the best advantage. Pasadenas victory, however, was clean-cut. The showing of Mike Sutton was noteworthy, but he was aided considerably by good racing luck. Old Honesty, which was added, ran poorly, nnd many shrewd horsemen are of the belief that the once promising colt Is sadly in need of a let-up to bring him back to form.

Crimmins, his rider, resorted to rough tactics at the half mile ground, shutting Hazelthorpe ofT, nearly causing him to fall. Crimmins was fined 5 nnd warned that a repetition of the offense would mean his suspension. Jockey Pieratt was unseated from Vansel shortly after the start of the first race. He fell In the path of Hugh Farrell and caused this horse to stumble and go down. Pieratt was bruised up a bit and II. Martin who rode Hugh Farrell escaped unhurt. Jockey Truenian, engaged to ride W. K. Slade, was taken suddenly ill just before post time in the second race, necessitating the substitution of L. Williams and causing additional time to be granted for new betting. J. IS. Respess won two of the purses, with Joe Moser and Carthage respectively. Carthage showed a tremendous flight of speed and led his field by a big margin throughout. Joe Mosers was also a smart performance and he evidently ranks with the top notch youngsters in this section. He will probably be a favorite in the Cincinnati Trophy Stakes. G. W. Innes and I. It. Fitzgerald arrived here this morning, each with four horses, from Windsor, Canada. Jockey Lee, who rode three winners, was engaged to ride Minos, but the horse was sera t died owing to the illness of his owner and trainer, T. KHey.
