MISS SAIN WINS AT LATONIA. Cincinnati, O., September 25. Todays attendance was good and the sport was healthy and enjoyable. Convolo annexed the feature, a handicap at seven furlongs, with a good field, which- included Frontenac, Mike Sutton and Dainty Dame. Mike Sutton, which finished third, might have won with a little better racing luck, as he. closed a big gap, after appearing a forlorn hope on account of having stumbled at the start. In his present good form he will give a good account of himself .with the best in these parts, especially if the track is muddy. Barney Schreiber and P. Dunne each took a purse with representatives from their stables. Miss Sain, owned by the former, furnished the chief surprise of the afternoon by easily taking the measure of the choices, Shirley Rossmore and Rebel Queen. The former ran an unaccountably dull race, and tired almost to a walk after, leading by a small marulu for a half. Butler, her rider, was interrogated by the judges, but the only explanation he could offer was that the filly tired badly. Boserrian. Convolo and Carew were the winning choices, while Black Dress, Mattlc Mack and Miss Sain were the long-priced winners. . The judges gave jockey T. Taylor a rehearing tills morning, aud have taken his . case under advisement. Jockey McClure was also given a rehearing. Jockey E.
