PRINCE KS FINE TRIUMPH the Favorite Kflojave Strenuous Finish Marks the De ¬ cision of the Race Lexing ¬ ton Favorites Prove False LEXINGTON Ky May 9 Marshall Brothers Prince K which has had a stren ¬ uous experience of campaigning inaugurated at New Orleans furnished a surprise this afternoon when he triumphed in the Idle Hour Stakes with 3000 added and worth 53090 net as well as the handsome silver cup that E R Bradley master of Idle Hour Farm from which the race derives its name donated Following the winner came Johnson N Camdens much heralded Mojave a pronounced favorite with Easter Bells heading the others in third place The winner was lucky in that he was in an outer position and subjected to little or no interference from which others in the field suffered The interference began when the scramble for positions came immediately after the start of the halfmile dash only a short distance from the last turn and in the scramble that ensued Mt Rose was forced back sharply and his displacement caused others in his rear to be retarded Mojave forced his way through but Easter Bells Ascot and Prince K were following him close Ascot soon dropped back and Mojave Easter Bells and Prince K became the most serious contenders The drive through the stretch found Easter Bells hold Ing on uncommonly well and when an eighth out she was almost on even terms with Mo ¬ jave When the latter began swerving out Easter Bells had to shorten her stride and when Prince K on the outside of her moved up she was caught in a squeeze between Mojave and Prince K and forced back backPrince Prince 1C continuing on overhauled Mo ¬ jave seventy yards from the finish Jockey Howard complained to the stewards after he had dismounted from Ascot that Garner had taken hold of his saddle cloth This Garner denied and said that he was forced to push Ascot off his mount to prevent going down when he was in close quarters on the turn some expected that Mojave would bo dis ¬ qualified for his swerving out in the stretch but the stewards let the result stand standPARIS PARIS MAID SAVES THE DAT DATFast Fast track racing and larger fields in ac ¬ tion today brought about difficulties for backers of favorites and they succumbed with steady regularity The exception came in the second race which was won by the outstanding choice Paris Maid The over ¬ throw of choices began in the initial race when Lottie Loraine succumbed to Hold Me a previous winner here Lottie Loraine ran as if she was best but her failure was due to her swerving out and losing much ground on the stretch turn turnLittle Little Sallie in J C Milams colors was the next of the choices to succumb Her failure to be a factor was due to her in ¬ ability to get through soon after the start which caused her to race with a shortened stride and before she could get clear she was far back of the leaders and unable to wear them down Fighting Cook winning from Oui Oui which showed improvement under vig ¬ orous riding Another Montfort Jones owned one Full Spoon finished third thirdHal Hal Price Ieadley whose horses have been showing fine form at this meeting got in tho limelight by a double victory with his Chacolct a previous winner and Bright I Trash Chacolet wbn the threequarters dash for which Jim Daisy was the favorite Bright Trash successfully coped with her opponents in the sixth race It was an ex ¬ tremely lucky win for her as Megan here probably was best but H Gray lost the race on her when he took her sharply back on the first turn and later on could not make up the ground he had lost lostAFTERNOONS AFTERNOONS WORST UPSET UPSETThe The afternoons worst upset came in the closing dash when Louis A was beaten by Marse John in a spectacular drive driveJockey Jockey J II Burke was the
