LATONIA DRENCHED AGAIN. i . New Showers Destroy Prospects for a Fast Track. Kinburn Captures the Main Eace of the Day, in Which Marjorie Hynes Euns Badly, i I.ATOXIA, Ky., September C LaUmia continued in the stona area and as :i result its racing suffered from a decreased attendance and an absence of stars from tlie different dashes. Intermittent idiowers kept tlie course soft and favored those with Ability to race "well in mud. In view of the unfavorable weather the patronage was satisfactory nd the betting all that was to be expected. A mile handicap, with a purse of ,800, served fis the feature, and it brought to the post a half dozen of the more highly rated ones. Gnllaher Brothers Kinhuiu, which, in a preceding race, gave Firebrand a stout argument for the Latouia Handicap of,000, came right back with a similar race and was crowned with success, for he won this afternoon in easy style from Bullet lroof, with Jcuett iu third place. Kinburn set out to make a runaway of it, but was led for the first halt mile by Marjorie Hynes, but afterward hud matters his own way. Marjorie Hynes formerly showed her ability to run well over a soft track, but now showed clearly she is handicapped iu such going, as she quit badly in the last half mile. Her elimination enabled Mullet lroof to become closest in pursuit of y the winner through the last half of the race, and his success in lauding second place was aided considerably by Jonett becoming involved in a-jam soon., after the start, which also hurt Atta Boy ll.s chances and completely destroyed Rouleaus opportunities. The public began in more auspicious fashion than on the two preceding days of tlie meeting, for they led off by landing on the winner, betting wisdom being uniininiou-i about Green Cold. That racer never left tlie result in doubt, for he dashed into the lead with a rush promptly as the start was effected and easily withstood all challenges, ultimately winning easily from the outsider Peggy C. "WASHINGTONS VICTORY PLEASING. Again tin: public benefited when Washington, heretofore frequent disappointment but a good colt, won in runaway style in the second race. Considering that Washington earlier in the year was rated with the cracks in these parts, surprise was occasioned that he did not receive more at- , teiition from the heavy operators and the to ". , that he paid was extremely generous. Smiling I Lad and Tulane had a host of supporters in the . rare. Tulane landing in second place. He reaicd and fell while at the. post lint showed no ill effects from it in the running. The mile and three-sixteenths dash brought to I he barrier an ordinary band with Allivan and ltruwnic McDawell. the latter making his re-appearance in racing after a lengthy layoff, the outstanding choices, and lladherway best liked of the others. Hadherway never figured in the running or result anil the further the others went the farther they left her in their rear. Allivan and Brownie MeDawell raced as a team for three-quarters: then Brownie MeDawell had enough ami Allivan began showing signs of tiring, making it easy for Alex Jr.. which had been overlooked in spite of his known adaptability to the going, to come on and win unattended. Allivan took second place with Miss Nell third. H. H. Hewitts colors figured in a double during he afternoon. His g-jod filly Startle in winning the sixth race, contested by some good fillies, displayed i seme of the good form that caused her to be regarded - as among the best of her sex in Kentucky last spring. .She . indulged Jeanne Bowdre with the lead until straightened away in the Ktretch drive, where she raced by the leader with evident ease, to win eased up. Jeanne Itowdre had her task cut out near the end to outstay Birdie G. and It is doubtful if she would have beaten the latter had Kennedy succeeded in getting the Green -burg filly away on even terms with the others. RAMA AT A LONG PRICE. Mose Goldblatts Kama furnished tlie unexpected in the final race and although guided wide for the entire race lie won with ease at a long price. Miss Fontaine was tlie highly regarded one here, but her troubles were early and frequent, culminating when her rider was forced to pull her up in the stretch to avoid going over the fence when Iu Widrig pressed to the inner rail, linen, another i outsider, landed in second place and Lou "Widrig finished third. The stewards have terminated the ruling against Id Slaltery, who was warned off last May for i presenting jockey AVida with a sum of money after the latter won a race on which Slattery had a bet. AVida was also .suspended at the time, but was reinstated after thirty days. T. P. Hayes is tlie latest horseman to reach here from Windsor. He arrived Monday night with ten horses, including Topmast, Iumps, EI Carero and .Shootaway, all his own property; Aloft. Bonus, Riga and iiewitch. which run in the colors of the Jrcentree Stable, and Iallette and Hamburg Lad, the property of Harry Payne Whitney. U. L. Raker has purchased of J. L. Carrick and B. C. Ward the bay yearling colt Secret Ballot, by Ballot Eric Belle dam of Hank ODay, and j has sent him to Lexington to join his five other yearlings; their breeding is as follows: Brown colt, by Black Toucy Tranid. Bay colt, by Colonel Veunic Annie Gihnore. I Chestnut colt, by King Gorin Arline. Brown filly, by Jim Gaffuey Sweetheart Sue. Chestnut filly, by Ballot Blaze of Cold. Track fupcrintendent Thomas Young of the Churchill Downs course, came over today to book stall reservations and was besieged with applications, over K00 stalls leing booked in less than mi hour. Jockey A. Wilson was suspended for three days by the starter for disobedience at the post,
