SOME UNIMPORTANT RACING . Latonias Card Results in Sweep for the Favorites. Believe Idle Hour Runs a Fast Three -Quarters in Winning Principal Race of Day. LATONIA. Ky., June 30. The speedy Believe Idle Hour further demonstrated that she ranks with the best grade of sprinters in these parts by a decisive triumph over colts and fillies of her own age starting in the feature race number, a dash of three-quarters, and covered the distance in 1:11, hard held at the finish. Fallacy landed in second place and Brunswick third. The latters race this afternoon must not be taken too seriously, for Luns-ford gave him a misjudged ride. At that it U doubtful whether even with the best sort of riding lie would have been dangerous to the winner, for the Bradley filly showed superior speed from the. outset, her even quarters for the first half of 23 and 23and had her followers well spent and itenabled her to gallop along in the stretch at her riders pleasure and hold Fallacy safe. Brunswick came along with a rush to overhaul Miss Muffins for the shorter portion of the purse. Fallacy continued on and worked out an aditional quarter in preparation for her race in the Latonia Oaks next Saturday. Backers of favorites scored frequently during tlm course of the afternoon, choices leading their opponents home in successive fashion. Several of them were forced to put up stubborn battles to outstay their closest followers, but the majority of winners h.id i.iattrs comparatively easy and their victories were foreshadowed long before the finisli was in sight. The J. B. Respess silks scored in the mile and a sixteenth ,800 purse, when Make Up won after a mild drive from Tippo Sahib with Aph in third place. Had the latter succeeded in getting a clear course earlier in the race, she might have made it interesting for Make Up, for she was going like a flash at the finish. The talent started out boldly when they installed Clintonville the choice of the first race, and she galloped home in front. This initial success was duplicated when the "good thing" Precious Lula won the second from. Chewink and Marimba. Dainty Lass scored their first victory for Messrs. Bcrryman and Young in the mile and a quarter dash, contested by a somewhat ordinary band. JOCKEY McATEES FIRST VICTORY. Lady Mother, from Frank J. Kelleys stable, proved much the best of the two-year-olds that furnished the contention if. the sixth race. Incidentally it marked the first victory for McAtee, who piloted her. May Bodine, in the final race, made it a perfecf. day for the favorites backers, but her victory was a lucfcy one and with better, .racing luck Lough Red, an outsider, would probably have led her at the finish.
