LATONIAS CLOSE FINISHES Miss Jemima and Braedaihane Separated by inches Only. Tulalip Wins Narrowly Wayward Lady in Front Again Penmans Biding Skill Shown. BY J. L. dempsey. LiATONIA, Ky., June 30 Highly interesting: racing; was the order at Latonia this afternoon, witnessed by another bis attendance, many in the throng being the advance guard from various points to witness the Latonia Derby, which has its running tomorrow. What was lacking in quantity in most of the dashes was made up in quality, many of the better grade in these parts competing for the different purses. The sprint handicap, in which some of the fleet ones contested, furnished a victory for Miss Jemima after a thrilling duel with Braedaihane, Miss Jemima getting up in the last few strides to head the Breckinridge representative. Penman, who figured prominently in all the races here during the afternoon, rushed Braedaihane into a good lead soon after the start and, making a stiff pace, was enabled to secure a good lead in the first quarter. He continued to lead in good style and, when approaching the stretch, ho seemed sure of victory, for Miss Jemima was making slow headway in her effort to overhaul him and Marvin May, another supposed dangerous one. was thoroughly done. Braedaihane, however, began tiring in the last eighth and Miss Jemima, responding to her riders persuasion, gained rapidly and, amid a tumult of encouragement from her supporters, she got up to win in the final strides. The mile dash was marked by another exciting finish, with Tulalip the winner from Tomahoi, with Marine Corps, in third place. Tulalip, after being outrun to the stretch, came fast under a good and hard ride. During the earlier running of the race Marine Corps, running again in his former owners colors, shewed speed and led his nearest pursuers at a stiff pace, but he cracked after goins three-quarters and relinquished the lead to Tomahoi, which in turn succumbed to Tulalip in the last sixteenth. LADY GORIIAMS GREAT SFEED. Lady Gorham gave a sensational half mile speed exhibition and it aided her into a lucky victory that she gained in the sixth race, in which she met some good fillies. She took a lead of five lengths in the first quarter and rounded into. the stretch holding the same margin, but presently she began tiring, and it was well for her that Kennedy momentarily lost control of Alice Blue Gown, when she took a bad swerve in the last seventy yards, else the Kcene filly would have won. As it was she only failed in overhauling Lady Gorham by a neck. Dust Flower finished in third place. Mose Goldblatt, whose Kentucky successes this year have been meager, began the day auspiciously when he took the opening race with his Wayward Lady, which beat some of the better grade platers home. He followed his initial success with a victory for his employers with Gadfly. The latter, owned by Harry Payne Whitney, ran a race that makes her a likely prospect for stake development. She won with ridiculous ease after making a slow beginning. Penman permitted her to race into a long lead shortly after reaching the stretch and in the last eighth began easing her up and when nearing the finish she was stopped to a canter, Jupiter landing in second place and Kennmare third. Penman again figured in a winning race when he brought T. P. Hayes My Ballot homo first in the third race. It was the first victory for this owner in many months. Loveliness fought it out with My Ballot through the stretch and Amanda, the early leader, managed to outstay Sea Court for third place. LADY LILLIAN A DISAPPOINTMENT. Lady Lillian was the well-intended one in the closing dash, but she failed her backers, bringing up third at the end. Uncle Velo scoring from La Foudre. McGarvey and Lewis, represented in the race by Warsaw, as well as Phillips and Jones, owner of Mormon Elder, coveted Uncle Velo and put in claims for him- McGarvey and Jones won in the draw. Uncle Velo cost them ?1,900. The horses of Mose Goldblatt will be transferred to Empire City track next Thursday to be raced there. The owner will motor to New York the following Sunday. He will go from Empire City to Saratoga, where his horses will also be campaigned. Max Hirsch telegraphed Pete Coyne that he had arranged to ship the four-year-old Devastation to Latonia Sunday to start in tbe Independence Handicap next Tuesday. ! The colt will carry 105 pounds and will be saddled by Coyne. Montfort Jones Rouleau was given a workout at the full distance of a mile and a half this morning and, going at an even pace, covered the distance in 2:36. Exterminator was given an airing of three-quarters in 1 :23 as a preliminary to a fast trial over a longer distance of ground Saturday morning. Tom Young, superintendent at Churchill Downs, came over today to confer with general manager Matt J. Winn regarding the impending improvements at the Louisville track. The work of removing the Douglas Park grandstand to the Downs, to be used as a clubhouse, will be started shortly.
