I,. DEMPSEY 1 LATONIA, Ky.. June 87. — A terrific siorm wbich came up while the horses were running the fourth race and continued until post time for the fifth race converted the track from fast to a muddy state, but tempered the Intense heat that had previously prevailed and made the final hours of the afternoon pleasant, although mud performers held tin- racing stage. The atendaneo was again large, in line with the big throng still left over from Saturdays multitude. A fairly tjood racing offering was provided and it served splendidly as a medium for- big peculation, most of the starters being well matched and attracting heavy backing. Jockey J. Owens w;.s the i unii irj that shone during the afternoon, this diminutive beginner piloting three ,,f the afternoons winners and riding in veteran fashion. Hia successes were on outsiders and began when he brought Ground -Swell home in the first race, which won from Grayson. Owens had the mount 00 Baagneur in the handicap under claiming conditions which featured and for which Blarney Stone was made the favorite, primarily because of his known ability to race well in mud and the fact that leum in had the mount. Ihe combination proved .1 failure, for Blarney Stone failed to display any great mud running facility and Penman threw away second place in the last few strides to Sinds of Pleasure. Owens, on the other hand, kept P.aigneur well together, rushed him into the lead when straightened away for the stretch racing, and passed the finish a good margin in advance. Ir was on Georgette in the third race that Owens scored his best victory, for he iierally snatched the purse from Spats after he seemingly hail the race won. DISA8TBOU8 DAY i OK rvvORlTFS, It was a disaster-oiis day for backers of favorites, as Choices .vent overboard steadily. Iiie worst upset came wiiii th-- running of th- fourth -ace. in which three-year-old fillies met. with Martha Fallon, because of her good showing in her recent races, receiving more sup tort than Jeanne Bowdre, but she failed dismally, not so much because of her own lack of speed hat to B. Pool giving her a poor ride. Also she suffered from Interference when Naughty Nisba swerved and bumped her at intervals.. Margaret Winsor, the extreme outsider, wi n here after it appeared that Jeanne Bowdre would win off by herself, having secured a good lead when straightened out in the stretch. with Martha 1allon practically out of any chance. Margaret Winsor, however, after having raced distantly until rounding into the stretch, came swiftly against hard wind and rainstorm and overhauled Jeanne Bow-l dre in the last seventy yards. In Memoriam. which has 1 a racing indif- ferently in the stakes and higher CUSS dashes since his advent under colors, met an ordi- nary band of maidens in the second race and won easily at long odds from Ivingsclore and the first timer Prince Tii Tii. carrying Harry Payne Whitneys colors. KingJclere started out as if he would make short work of his opponents and led until well into the stretch, where la Memoriam passed him with ease. The concluding race found the speculators all at sea. with the result that all the startlers came in for generous backing, with Bscar- polette and Mormon Llder the most support- ed. They had the finish betwei n them. Ks-earpolclio winning off and Mormon Elder getting home before Miss Iro.-perity. MUCH INTIIir.ST IN DKRBY.
