v MUD RUNNERS PROMINENT AT LAUREL Heavy Going Favors Horses Partial to That Kind of Track Public Choices Score Regularly. LAUREL, Md., October 15. Mud runners again had their innings at Laurel this afternoon. The track was deep and htavy and it took a sturdy horse to run in the going. The public had a good line on the horses with a preference for suclt going, as the afternoons results show a majority of the favorites winning in easy fashion. W. S. Kilmers Frogtown, at odds-on, won the mile dash that opened the days sport, but was hard pressed at the finish by the fast closing Daddys Choice, the latter tiring when almost overtaking the leader. Doublet accounted for the steeplechase, while W. M. Jeffords Kinnoul found easy opposition in the following race to wiii easing up. The mile and an eighth race proved only a canter for The Desert, which led all the way never fully extended. A long shot in Grandee furnished excitement for the spectators by easily accounting for the fifth race, in which Ballyconnell was a badly beaten favorite. The final races of the afternoon fell to St. Quen-tin and Glen Light, the former having an easy time of it in the sixth, while Glen Light was forced to do his best to withstand the fast closing rush of The Wit. Billy Kelly has been going along so well in his work-outs of late and showing no signs of the bleeding that caused a temporary letup in his training that Bedwell named him for the three-quarter mile handicap tomorrow. Mrs. L. Brown has disposed of the useful plater Caballo to Arthur Brent by private sale. The latter is gathering a small string to take to Cuba next winter. T. H. Wilson, a western trainer who has several horses here, is recovering from an operation he underwent in a Baltimore hospital, where he has been confined for several weeks.
