GELDINGS IN THE LATONIA CUP EXTERMINATOR AND BE FRANK TO RUN FOR SATURDA YS IMPORTANT RACE EXTERMINATOR SEEMS TO HAVE THE PRIZE AT HIS MERCY By EXILE By odds the best racer ever got by McGee, Exterminator has a Derby and a. Cup form to recommend him and anyone who saw him steal away from Purchase in the Saratoga Cup cannot well make him out a loser, especially if Saturdays Latonia course be holding. Exterminator is a gelding, more, the pity, and yet another bred Eclipse to Herod. Strange Is it not, how the blend works out and a member of the only family of purely American origin, really .worth while, that of Maria West? Both fit and nt their best it is a near thing between the pair, Exterminator and Under Fire, witli the odds just favoring the latter. But Under Fire is not at his best and i is my opinion that Exterminator is sure to win Saturdays Latonia Cup. If he was fit and well. Under Fire is handicapped .

The Latonia Derby winner. Be Frank, on account of his win of Tuesday last, is entitled to some consideration for the Latonia Cup. Ever since Latonia Derby day I have held to the opinion that staying is Be Franks forte, for in that race, run over the mile and a half course, lie came on at the end to win, more than comfortably, from Omond and Regalo. Since this, however, Be Frank lias not managed to win a race. Rapid Day was only a nose too good for him for a one and one-sixteenth miles go at Havre de Grace on September 18, but on October 4, at Laurel, the son of Sir John Johnson finished some distance back of Sir Barton. Mad Hatter, Audacious and the subsequent record .maker. Thunderclap, for the Maryland Handicap. . Just about the best field this of three-yeai-olds that has to win the Latonia Cup. Exterminator failed to give him ten pounds and a boating this spring at Louisville. How, then, is Exterminator to concede Under Fire twenty pounds and beat him for the Cup? Both of them have been through the mill. Apparently, however. Exterminator has come through the ordeal in the best physical condition and what with Manager Waite not yet at his best, Be Franks capabilities a trifle overestimated and Minto II.s stamina a matter of conjecture, it would appear that the issue lies between Exterminator and Under Fire. I do not know if Exterminator is to be sent for the race. If he is, he will indeed be a thorn in the side of the best of them. Exterminator can be relied upon to stay every yard of the course, and if delivered at the post near to his Saratoga Cup form, Under Fire must be at his best, which he is not, to beat him. faced the starter this season, mind you, Mad Hatter was coming a rare bet all the way and as western form is away below par this time Be Frank must be accorded an outside chance for the Cup, even though the handicapper has seen fit to burden him with 119 pounds. It is rather more poundage, in my opinion, than lie will successfully be able to handle. A well-bred gelding is Be Frank, son of that tried campaigner. Sir John Johnson, and out of Frankness, by Miller, son of Hindoo, and half-brother to the late James R. Keenes Jockey Club Stakes winner. Disguise, their dam being imported Bonnie Gal, by Galopin. Be Frank is a member of the exceptionally productive Maggie B. B. family and bred Eclipse to Herod. I could have made him out to hold as good a ehanee as any had he his weight. rAmphion .12 I r J gPgnJom .1 , Isidor 13 J c,iestnut 1886 I Suicide Hermit 5 E chestnut, 1894 1 . rf 8 Dmr S .
