Kelleys Chatterton and L, Skeezix Win at Latonia. * Kentucky Special Horses to Arrive ru Shortly and Interest in the bj w will Eace Increases Daily. r« a a • of of In Ir BY J. L. DEMrSEY. tc to LATONIA. Ky., June It.— The colors of . Frank J. Keller, well-known Chicago sports-man, the ■cured prominently In Latonlas racing this afternoon, when representatives from rc his extensive stable secured a double in easy ai style and incidentally brought abot;t the ai ■n overthrow Of two of the most extensively i backed favorites. The successful purse win- a r.ers in the Keuey silks were the three-year- w old Chatterton, a son of Fail Play — Chit n Chat, which has been performing promisingly ai in his previous races, and Skeezix, a two- tl year-old son cf Sweep — Margaret T. Chattertons good race, while not unex- d: peeled by his connections, furnished an out- g| standing surprise from the fact that h . p, downed the consistent and fast Braedalbant at the lalters favorite distance, three-quar- t] ters of a mile. He waited in close attendance p on the leaden, beaded by Braedalbane, until ci straightened away in the stretch, where hi n rcsponu-jd in game style to Kennedys caL v and wore the Breckinridge- representative a down without great effort to win In a canter, b Braedalbane was an easy second, while the 1 tired and swerving Jeanne Bowdre just man- i aged to keep from fouling Wayward Lady and landed a neck in advance of the Gold- b blatt lilly for third place. Skeezixs victim was Harry Payne Whit- t neys lunta Gorda, favorite in the sixth race : I over some highly-regarded two-year-olds. Bike Chatterton, Skeezix was kept in restraint t by Kennedy until the stretch was readied, , I where he made a play for the lead and liad i no difficulty in taking it to win easing up. . I Punta Gorda was best of the others and 1 r finished In Becond place, several lengths before Kd Pendleton. The time of this race, c 1 :00%, equals the best time here for this year r at the distance, Anna M. Humphrey having r run it in the same time in the Clipsetta t Stakes. I FAVORITES FAR1I FOOKLY. Good racing was the order throughout the e ■ afternoon, but the form backers were sadly r . astray in their picking, for favorites were e ■ downed with regularity. . The failure of favorites began when Cau- - i tious and Prince Welles, joint choices in the e ; first, were beaten. The winner here turned d up in Rocky fountain, owned by G. If. Ilen-drie. It was the first purse which this prominent - Canadian owner had landed daring the e Kentucky racing season. Cautious finished second after a good race, but Prince Welles succumbed readily at the end to the outsider, - Bobbie Shea, for third The second race, in which some crack two-year-old - colts met, developed a betting duel »1 between the supporters of Doctor Glenn, 1? Banner Bearer and Kingsclere. The latter !r had some tensational trials to his credit and d he ran like a good colt, standing a hard drive through the stretch and until in the last few w strides, where he gave way, probably due ie to being a trifle short. His elimination caused *1 Banner Bearer and Doctor Glenn to light it it out, the Respess colt winning mainly through ;h his having saved ground on the turns. The frequently disappointing Wickford had the call in tho third race, but the finish •h found him far back, Virgo winning from La ,a Foudre, with Trust Official in third place. BllAEDALBASE FAILS ADHIBEES. Braedalbane was the next favorite to succumb and was followed by Tomahoi in the ie mile that brought to the barrrer some good d ones. Dartmoor, which attracted slightly ly less attention than Tomahoi, was an easy sy winner from the awkwardiy going Billy ly Brush, which blundered and met frequent at interference, but finally came like a shot ot when nearing the stretch. Jim Daisy fin- n- ished third. Jockey Owens signalized his return to the he saddle after several days suspension for cr ; rough riding by riding three winners. He had the mounts on Rocky Mountain in the he I opener, Virgo in the third race and Bady Lil- u" ! lian in the final dash. Major T. C. McDowell, member of the Kentucky State Racing Commission, owner ° of Ashland and an extensive racing string, who .° i has been confined to his bed by a long attack *L of illness, was a brief visitor at his I , — ___ e ■ . - i e ; d - e - - »1 1? !r d w ie *1 it it ;h •h La ,a the ie d ly sy ly at ot n- the he for cr He the he u" the ° of who .° *L his ■ - stable during the afternoon. He still feels * somewhat weak, but is improving steadily and expects to be in hi3 former robust health i in a short time. J. Heupel was an addition to the jockey ranles. having been issued a license this s morning by the Kentucky State Racing Com-d - mission. His application was held up pend-■ - ing advices from the Maryland State Rac- - ing Commission, with reference to the jockeys standing in Maryland. Todays heat was intense, the hottest elay y in years. Jockey G. Fields was thrown heavily while e on the way to the post in the opening dash li astride Spods. The rider seemed to be serine - ously hurt for awhile, but after a brief f rest he remounted and rode the horse in the race. Spods galloped off a quarter of a mile after he unseated his rider, but it was s at a slow pace and he was easily caught. According to eastern advices to hand today ►- William Garth will bring the J. S. Cos-lj i- den horses, including Snob II., here next -t Sunday, as they are intended to leave New » York Saturday. Fred Burlew will arrive with Morvich anil d the other Benjamin Block horses on Monday, i- their departure from New York oc-c- :- curring on Sunday.

The Harry Payne Whitney consignment, t including Olympus, Whiskaway and others, s, will reach Latonia Werdnesday. There is no abating of interest in the ie Kentucky Special. Requests that space be 10 reserved for them are coming in in deluge e style from prominent persons of every seels c" tion of the country. The box seats have /e been exhausted for some time and every 2j available reserved seat in the grandstand n! has also been taken. Arrangements to han-f die the big crowd with dispatch and comfort !-t to the racing patrons is being planned on an in extensive scale by manager Matt J. Winn in and his big force of assistants.
