Louisville Ky October 11 George Odoms er ¬ ratic filly Follie Levy came again Into the lime ¬ light at Churchill Downs today by an easy victory in the Maple Selling Stakes which featured the card and in which she beat such good racers as Melisande and Cherryola Melisande was the choice but tEe Odoui filly had been given a thorough school ing at the barrier since her recent fiasco at the post and the lesson evidently did her good for she was the bestbehaved of the seven starters A forward position at the break enabled her to resume the lead at her riders call and she held the opposition safe for the entire trip Melisande under strong urging took second place from Cherryola CherryolaThis This was another disastrous day for the smart set all their choices with the sole exception of Alfred the Great disappointing with exasperating regularity regularityThe The worst blow came with the running of the fifth race which resulted in the defeat of the crack juvenile Round the World after a sensational last quarter drive with Marjorie A Round the World was much the best but her rider indulged her in the first half mile being contented to take matters easy and rate behind the pace of Marjorie A and Bobby Boyer When he attempted to move up in the stretch he was carried wide and to the surprise oC her backers the Applegate filly was wanting in the final drive and was outgamed to the finish landing a nose behind the winner Marjorie A paid her lucky hackers more than 70 to 1 1The The eastern contingent started oft as if to clean up the card with their representatives the first tw6 purses going to Helene and Alfred tlie Great GreatThe The third race a handicap at one mile was looked upon by the easterners to be in the nature of a romp for former jockey Tommy Burns Glucose and he was givrarronfidcnt support He flattered by leading until the last sixteenth where Milton B wore him down to win by a head The easterners lso received a check in the closing dash when their mainstays Intrinsic and Norbitt after being liber ¬ ally Imcked failed to get any portion of the purse tlie consistent Camel carrying off first money with Queen Marguerite the runner up and Descoinnets third thirdThere There was considerable disappointment in the third race due to Leamences runaway while at tlie post The horse was regarded as a good thing Judging by the liberal support he was accorded and his l a kers were in anything but a pleasant frame of mind when he made the circle of the course by himself tit top speed and was later withdrawn from starting startingStarter Starter Cassidy attributed Samarias failure to leave the post with the others in tlie second race to Kennedys action in pulling her up and suspended him for the remainder of the meeting Jinkeys Andress and Grand were each given suspensions for four dlys for disobedience at the i ost The judges have had under investigation since yesterday a charge against jockey W Brannon and as a result of their finding the rider was suspended for three months and will also have to pay a fine of 100 The judges were advised by a horseman yesterday that in the closing race of Saturday Brannon used his whip freely to strike jockeys Steinhardt and Allen respectively astride Colonel Ashmeade and Colinet The judges sent for the boys and interro ¬ gated them Steinhardt admitted that Brannon had struck him but Allen claimed to have missed the blows aimed for him but said that Brannon had landed on Colinet and made the additional charge that the offending jockey had deliberately taken hold of Colinets bridle and held him back Brannon did not deny striking Steinhardt but defended himself against the charge of having taken hold of Colinets bridle claiming in explanation that his whip be ¬ came entangled in Colinets bridle ring when Jie accidentally struck him across the nose noseTrainer Trainer George Ham of the GcrstHolle stable had Minot shipped here from the farm and has put him again in active training
