LATONIA PROGRAM SPOILED Rain and Mud Bring Cancellation of Two Main Races Cherokee Makes Good and Proves Himself a Fast Colt Green ¬ land First but Disqualified BY J L DEMPSEY LATONIA Ky June 13 Gallaher Bros good colt Cherokee about which there has been much rumor all spring made good all the flattering things said of him when ho took into camp what is supposed to be nearly the best in the twoyearold division that has so far shown in these parts His decisive triumph left no room for doubt as to his su ¬ periority over those he met and he went about his task in truly businesslike fashion He began awkwardly but willingly and gave stern chase to Banter which had raced into the lead with a rush Cherokee appeared somewhat bothered by the soft footing and his rider sensing this took him into better going shortly after rounding the first turn He immediately settled into his full strida and took after Banter in resolute style Ho gained rapidly and juat before being straigh ¬ tened away for the stretch drive overhauled Banter and through the last eighth drew away steadily and ultimately won in a caii ter by five lengths Banter began tiring badly in the last eighth and Hopeless coming with a rush overhauled him in the last few strides Dream Maker too was going well at the end and missed getting third place by a matter of inches and with another strido to go would have snatched the shorter por ¬ tion of the purse away from Banter Tho time of the race 1 01 was good consider ¬ ing the condition of the track trackDIMPLES DIMPLES WITH ALL EASE EASETho Tho talent was not so apt as yesterday in picking winners and began badly when they selected the former failure Pindar Peel as the one likely to carry off tho purse in the initial race He succumbed in the last sixteenth to J B Respnss Dimples which won with ease Pindar Peel landing in second place and Grayson outstaying the weaklyridden Bright Leaf for third place placeBandeau Bandeau another former loser was given the call in the second race but he never figured seriously at any part of the running Carl Weidemanns Tokihime won here after having led for the entire distance Minmo B the extreme outsider finished third after having run a splendid race raceCharles Charles Henry was the favored one in tha third race and after threatening a runaway of it when he took a lead of nearly tea lengths finally tired badly and just man ¬ aged to outstay Black Rock one of the outsiders Yvar Prize finishing in third place placeBalance Balance Wheel enjoyed slight favoritism over Young Adam in the second substitute dash and he made good in easy fashion but Young Adam ran a poor race and got no part of the purse Casey running in improved form because of the soft track and his light weight landed second with Peggy C in third place placeTodays Todays two feature races had to be de ¬ clared off as a result of changed track con ¬ ditions due to a heavy storm this morning To complete the sevenrace card two sub ¬ stitutes were put on and they brought somo of the cheaper grade of horses here hereMORE MORE RAIN IN SIGHT SIGHTA A heavily overcast sky presaging more rain and an ordinary race offering caused a somewhat decreased attendance although the patronage was in excess of what was expected The racing did not suffer to any appreciable extent by the changed going for the footing was fairly firm except near tha inner rail railIn In the first substitute dash a threequar ¬ ters purse came a disqualification after Greenland ridden by M Garner had finished first from Grace Minard ana Blaise with Wm Oldt following Greenland had bumped his way through on the stretch turn and in doing so had subjected both Grace Minard and Wm Oldt to interference The stewards intend to adhere to their announced policy of stamping out rough riding and in addi ¬ tion to disqualifying Greenland suspended jockey M Garner for fifteen days The disqualification of Greenland gave the purse to Grace Minard second place to Blaise and Wm Oldt was given third place placeThe The last race of the day fell to Easteside on which Connelly rode one of his vigorous races with the result that he kept in tho lead from the start and drew far away in the stretch Make Up was just as much best of the others and accounted for second place with Tody leading the others othersAdditional Additional entries to the 50000 Kentucky Special received during the
