f LATONIA RACING QUITE UNEVENTFUL Program of Purse Races for tho Humbler Grado of Horses. LATONIA, Ky., October 3. No high-class horse or horses helped to entertain the thousands who visited Latonia today. It was a typical Friday card and catered to the lowly platers in the main. For all that capital and well contested racing was furnished, and close finishes were as heartily applauded as if they had been fought out by real stars of the turf. Being the most, valuable, the fourth race was rated as the feature of the afternoon. Mahony had been racing well since being brought here from the east and was selected to wear the honors of favoritism. The selection proved the correct solution, and Mahony won without any great trouble by a length, with Lady Fair Play a fast going second. The others were hull down in the distance, First Pullet finishing third, but ten lengths lehind Lady Fair Play. Texas Special was in this, and has been talked of as a starter in the L-itonia Championship Stakes. Why was not apparent in his performance today. E. R. Bradley appropriated the first race through the fleetness of his Helmet filly Binding Tie. She was a well supported second choice to A. N. Akin and won all the way, but was doing her best at the end to resist the persistent attention of old Pullux and only won from him by a half length, W. W. Hastings finishing a good third. Fourth was the best A. N. Akin could do. The hard luck filly Alsace was almost an even money favorite for the second race. She was threatening to win all through the Kentucky spring campaign, but drawing seconds and thirds for her share. She did not vary from this record today and succumbed to the longshot Bcnecia by a length, the latter getting away well, while she was hampered at the start.
