TEN POINT AGAIN BEATEN A L ASTES THREEYEAROLD FINISHES SEC OKD TO SWANNANOA IN HANDICAP Lack of Condition Blamed for Colts Second Defeat Defeatin in Kentucky Salon Is Returned Winner Winnerof of Juvenile Stakes Louisville Ky May 22 Ten Point of which so much was expected this season sustained Ills second defeat since his arrival in Kentucky when he was beaten at Churchill Downs this afternoon by Swannanoa in the mile and seventy yards handicap which served as the secondary feature of the pro ¬ gram His defeat by the Cowdin mare was wholly unexpected Those who figured that he might sus ¬ tain a setback in the race regarded Hamilton as the most likely to take his measure but the Schorr representative raced in the most disappointing fash ¬ ion and linished a distant trailer After the race there were any number of shrewd judges who de ¬ clared that Ten Point was by far the best in tho race and that ills defeat was due solely to lack of condition Ho was under stout restraint for six furlongs seemingly able to come away from Swan ¬ nanoa his closest attendant on call but when Gross asked him to do so lie failed utterly and had to be driven hard during the last furlong to save second place from the fast finishing Prince Ilermls The latter lost a considerable amount of ground by going wide was going fastest of all at the end and would have won at a longer distance According to rumor Ten Point has been considerably indulged since bis arrival here and lias had little work This is said to have been due to his trainers cheap regard of Ten Points possible opposition Lack of condition and poor riding contributed to his defeat in the Kentucky Derby and while he was well handled in todays race lack of condition was again a factor Owner Aste while he felt the colts defeat this afternoon keenly expressed confi ¬ dence in Ten Points ability to take the measure of any horse hereabouts and feels sanguine that he will redeem himself in the Kentucky Handicap to be run next Monday at Douglas Park It is stated that the colt wjll be given a linal workout on Saturday and that he will be set down on that occasion tftfctho limit limitTlio Tlio Juvenile Stakes at five furlongs

in the race and the winner was always favored in the speculation though E It Bradleys Brigs Brother received considerable backing The latter became involved in trouble soon after the start and could never regain the lost ground The winner was clear of interference all the way and disposed of Aunt Mamie the early pacemaker witli ease when it came to the linal drive Aunt Mamie hud to be hard ridden
