GEORGIE A FAILURE Meets His Waterloo at Latonia on Invasion of West. E.. Pools Brilliant Riding Feature of Afternoon Quince Garden Buns Fast Race. LATONIA, Ivy., November 2. It did not occasion much surprise this afternoon when Gcorgie, fresh from a series of triumphs in the East and primed for a winning, failed lamentably in the sixth race, in which he was opposed by some platers of the higher class. Georgies failure was complete. His defeat was decisive and he never figured to any formidable extent at any stage of the contest. Away forwardly, he kept to an outer part of the course and was far back during the running at all times, eventually bringing up in the rear. The winner turned up in the consistent Runquoi, which from the start was in the thickest of contention and. held Sway safe when it came to the final stretch drive. Cap Rock, an extreme outsider, furnished the surprise in landing in third place. While the fifth race held the most interest on account of the presence of Georgie, that racer being shipped here from the East via Louisville, with the intention of serving as a medium for a coup, there was naturally an air of expectancy and curiosity as to his performance. Not alone did it cost Georgies owner a healthy sum in wagers, but he also lost his horse. S. K. Nichols, represented in the raco by Paris Maid, acquired Georgie via the claiming route at a cost of ,800. The actual feature of the days racing was the fourth race, in which some good sprinters met, and it developed one of the best finishes of the meeting, with Quince Garden the winner, primarily due to the superior riding of E. Pool over H. J. Burke, who had the mount on the favorite, Make Up. Quince Garden, after having shown fine speel, was to all appearances beaten a sixteenth from the finish, but he stuck doggeaiy to his task and right at the end it became a question of I jockeyship, with Pool outriding his rival in the last strides. IDEAL WEATHER CONTINUES. Ideal weather conditions again prevailed here and it contributed extensively in making for sport of a midsummer brand. The attendance was again of record proportions and the speculative action on a par with the best days here. Jockey E. Pool was the riding star of the afternoon and he inaugurated his success when he brought home Lugs, favorite, in the opener. Some of the ordinary ones started in this race and Lugs, after indulging Banker Brown to the stretch, drew out to win easily from Modna, a "fielder," with Quanah in third place. Pools next success came in the fourth race, in which his good riding gained a victory for Quince Garden. He next succeeded with Stump Jr., one that failed to attract much betting attention, though he was in with a band of ordinary maiden two-year-olds. The colt won in runaway style from Lucky Run, with Yorick in third place. There was considerable betting activity in the race about Purple and White, but that youngster was buffeted about like a storm disabled ship and her chances went glimmering early. Pool missed winning the closing dash by a matter of inches with Louanna, that filly being beaten in the last stride by Tu-lane. Pool again had to display rare riding skill and it promised success up to within the last few strides, where Tulane proved the better and passed the Keene filly. Tulalip landed in third place. Louanna was claimed out of the race by Shafer and Conway for ,500. In the other youngster race Nulli Sccundus won from Pavlowa and Flower Shop. The trio engaged in a spirited finish. CARNARVON MAKES GOOD. Carnarvon, on several occasions a huge disappointment, made good for the first time this fall when he won in easy style in the third race, in which he ruled a big favorite. Wickford was his closest rival at the finish, with Lou Widrig landing in third place. Dr. M. W. Williams, one of the owners of the famous Adelbert Stud, near Hopkinsville, Ky., paid his first visit of the fall season to Latonia Thursday and will remain for the closing day. George J. Long and Colonel Andrew Vennie came from Louisville to stay over to witness the decision of the Latonia Cup Saturday.
