Runs Full Tilt Into Hocnir While Moving Up Fast on Stretch Turn Horse and Rider Escape Serious Injury News of Winter Meetings. Cincinnati. 0., November 3. An accident that for a time threatened serious consequences attended the running of the feature race at Latonia today when Dorothy Dean, an overwhelming favorite, and ridden by It. Small, fell on the stretch turn while going at top speed. The mare turned a complete somersault and rolled over her rider with force. Small remained motionless on the track in 11 kneeling posture, his head to the ground until aid reached him. He quicklj- recovered and a careful examination showed that beyond a severe shaking up he had escaped injury. The mishap came when Dorothy Dean, moving up fast and about to make the stretch turn, ran full tilt into Hocnir. The impact almost took Hocnir off his feet and eliminated him from contention. Brooklield and Leo Skolny were the leaders at the time and they escaped interference, while Prince Kermis, the trailer, was guided close to the inner , rail and avoided the prostrate mare. Prince Hermis later wore down the leaders and won by a comfortable .margin. Early, in the day Cecil, ridden by J. Acton, fell .during the running of the third race. The rider escaped with a slight shaking up and had the mount on Stick Pin in the fifth race. Another remarkably large crowd was in attendance. The visitors displayed keen aptitude for the sport, and indulged freely in speculation. Favorites and second choices figured extensively in tiie results, except in the fourth race. Two coups were put over, according to report, with Gilt Edge and Mud Sill serving as the mediums. The last named showed a vastly improved effort over a former start, but Gilt Edge ran right back to his good showing of the time before and won the opener easily. Cardigan again proved himself to be a shifty sort by an easy victory in the second race. Lady Colonist proved a disappointment in the fifth race, and failed to get any part of the purse, though supported with rare confidence by her connections. She ran as if sulking for three quarters, but came fast in the last quarter. Joe Deibold led all the way and won handily. Ho fl-as entered for 00 and was bid up to by J. o. Hawkins, but was retained. C. A. Tilles, principal stockholder in the Latonia track, was among todays visitors. He came from New York and will remain for the rest of the racings He was immensely pleased with the proper-ous conditions prevailing.
