I.ATOXIA, Ky., June 26. — Firebrands claim to greatness suffered a setback as a result of his dismal failure in the mile ami severity yards feature, a handicap having ?2.000 added, and in which he reigned aa even money favorite. He was beaten easily by Minto II., Parader and Gangway. The veteran Minto II. showed himself to be master at all stages of the race, for he was restrained hard while Firebrand and Gangway were making or forcing a stiff pace in the early running and raced into the lead readily when called on and WOO with the utmost ease from the hard-ridden Parader Gangway, although tiring, had speed enough in reserve to oucstay Firebrand. It is quite evident now that Firebrand docs not measure up to a 0,000 standard, at any rate just now. Threatening weather, supplemented by a light drizzle before racing time, did not make much of an inroad on the attendance ; as a matter of fact it was the biggest Monday crowd present at Eatonia during this summer. In the throng were many visitoi3 who had stayed over after having witnessed the Kentucky Special, for which they had come from afar to view. Highly interesting racing was the order all through the afternoon, several of the finishes being of the closest sort and requiring the official placing to determine the result- HERO OF TIIF. AFTLUXOOX. Jockey H. Pool waa the hero of the afternoon through piloting three of the winners and just missing getting the verdict in another race. 1 lis list of successes was inaugurated with the victory of Miss Meise in the second race, which scared easily from some ordinary ones and was checked temporarily when ho failed to land Michael J. Daly in the succeeding race, Flying Prince beating him home by a nose. He followed with a victory on Marvin May and in the next race was astride Minto II. Marvin May met some fast short-distanco ones in the fourth race and gave a came exhibition in resolutely standing a hard drive all through the stretch and outstaying Chai.-terton. Marvin May had been called oa early to give his best to keep in advance of the fleet ones contesting the lead with him. but he shook them off in good style unlii Chatterton began his challenge. At that Marvin May was lucky to win, for had Chatterton not lost ground by coming wide he would have been the victor. The opening race brought a close finish, with May Bodine the winner through her ability to wear Beg Pardon down and head him in the last few strides. Beg Pardon, when a sixteenth out. appeared the winner, as Pewell Combs, the early leader, had begun tiring, but May Bodines final rush proved successful. MISS MEISE WINS AGAIN. Montfort Jones continues to win an occasional purse, though his establishment is greatly incapacitated from racing here, a.-i a result of the illness of all his stars. His Miss Meise repeated her victory of several days ago and led the two-year-olds which started in the second race. Away and Kenn-mare fought it out stubbornly for second place, the McDowell filly getting the middle section of the purse. The lowly Flying Prince and Michael J. Daly staged an exciting duel through the stretch in their effort to graduate from the maiden ranks and luck favored Flying Prince, mostly due to the awkwardness of Michael J. Daly, which tried to swerve and was unable to find the right use of his legs. At one time he had Flying Prince beaten, but the latter got up again in the last stride. Hughes Graham and First Ward were backed to the exclusion of the others in the sixth race, but both were beaten decisively. Beslie, ridden by Penman, raced into a good lead at once and, holding sway throughout, won by a comfortable margin from Jakie Hay, which in turn finshed a long way before First Ward. The latter, as well as Hughes Graham, ran a disappointing race. Eouis A. finally managed to land the first purse for his new owner when he won the final race from Walnut Hall, with Cut Up in third place. Louis A. began with his cus- tomary slowness, but came fast through the last half mile. Continued oa twelfth page. I.
