RUDOLFO IN RARE FORM EMMONS RACER WINS CHURCHILL DOWNS HANDICAP PURSE IN FAST TIME Performance of Sufficient Merit to Bring Him Into IntoProminence Prominence for the Rich Kentucky Handicap Handicapto to Be Run Next Monday Louisville Ky May 20 The Churchill Downs Handicap purse of 1000 one mile and an eighth considered by owners as a splendid test for pros ¬ pective starters in the valuable Kentucky Handicii to be run on the opening day of the Douglas Park meeting brought out the cream of racers with few exceptions in these parts and furnished a splendid contest at Churchill Downs this afternoon H H Immons Hudolfo won it by a scant length over the eastern threeyearold Yankee Notions with another threeyearold Gowell In third place a few Inches In advance of Princess Callaway The latter iu company with Yankee Notions forced a fast pace from the start but Loftus always kept Hudolfo within lialllng distance and his challenge In the final quarter was successful Yankee Notions seem ¬ ingly was done for on the stretch turn but came again in gallant fashion In the last furlong Prin ¬ cess Callaway tired badly after straightening away for the stretch run Tlie race was run in time that was within onefifth of a second of the track record of 151 On bis showing today Hudolfo looms up as a factor to be reckoned with for the 15000 prize next Monday and predictions were rife this afternoon that the horse which finishes in front of him will be tlie winner W S Trevey who has been training the horse since his success in the rich Lutonla Cup race last fall has repeatedly tried to buy the horse for owner C F Biischemever of Hawthorn fame hut an offer of 10000 has not been sufficiently tempting to Mr Emmons to make the transfer Ideal weather a fast track1 and the prospect of witnessing sood sport caused another overflow ut tendance The betting exceeded in volume that of any former week day The public fared badly on the whole as some of their beat choices went down to defeat About the worst upset came In the sec ¬ ond race when the supposed crack Harry L failed to place the purse going to Boots and Saddle which ran in vastly improved form probably because he wore blinkers Tlie second hard jolt came In the third race when Hobnob and Leochares failed to got any portion of the purse Silver Bill winning over McCorkle and Flying Tom The big band of starters in the opener was productive of much un ¬ avoidable crowding Amoret was one of the lucky ones to escape serious interference and won out over Blue Thistle the favorite favoriteThomas Thomas C McDowell got a break of luck In his favor in the fifth race In which fourteen started and took a purse when Caution won as her rider pleased from Barbara Lane and Tiktok TiktokMelton Melton Street upset n good thing when he finished in front of AI Bloch and Wander in the closing dash The latter suffered sharp interference in the stretch from Melton Street but Tapllns claim of foul was ignored the stewards holding to the theory that Wander was well beaten at the time of the Inter ¬ ference ferenceAn An extra race for threeyearolds at one mile and a sixteenth will be run on Friday next on which day there will be seven races The extra race is the result of several runups that have taken place during the meeting but the forty per cent that goes to this fund is not quite sufficient to total 600 the minimum purse and the association will add the balance balanceJockey Jockey Kirschbaum the first rider to come under the ban of the starter on a Kentucky track this season was today suspended for the
