LADY MADCAP TO FORE Proves Best in Latonias Main Race, Scoring in Fast Time. W. Perkins Twice Successful, Miss Meise and Fantoche Carrying His Colors to Victory. LATONIA, Ky., Oct. 19. Desha Breckinridges five-year-old mare, Lady Madcap, was the -winner of the feature attraction of Fridays card, the Southgate Purse, one mile in distance, which she covered in the fast time of 1:38. winning by the margin of two lengths from Triumph, from the Bradley barn, and Jeanne Bowdre finishing third. Running in her best form, Lady Madcap was rated close up to the pace set by Jeanne Bowdre until well around the far turn, where Scobie slipped through next to the inside rail and opened up a clear lead in the stretch that she continued to increase till the finish was reached. Triumph also made his move on the turn and coming around on the outside of the others, finished with the best of courage to get up for second place, while Jeanne Bowdre managed to keep going long enough to save the short end of the purse. The day started out cold and disagreeable, but as the afternoon wore on the sun crept forth and done its best to warm up the air. The racing was full of upsets and the followers of form had many a setback, but for all of this the sport was entertaining and there was the usual enthusiasm at the finish of the various dashes. CLOSE A2iD THRILLING FIXISH. A bulky band of twelve maidens made up the field. jiL-the first race, which, resulted in the closest finish of the meeting when the first five horses finished almost abreast of one another. There was an uproar of dissent when the official placing was displayed, as it appeared from the stand that the judges had erred, but the official placing stood, first place going to C. W. Clarks Ray Jr. by a nose, with J. Lowes Starbeck same distance in front of J. N. Camdens Graeme. Another good looking band of platers came together in the second at one mile and a sixteenth. Bosh was the winner from. Cash, with Flower Shop saving the show. Lowenstein Brothers Bill OFlynn, gave a sparkling exhibition of speed in winning the third, a dash of three-quarters, from a band of five. He led from the rise of the barrier to win easily, with Sympathy in second place, and Glyn earning third money. W. Perkins Miss Meise was the best of the fillies and mares that made up the field in the fourth over a mile and seventy yards, but was forced to give her best to stall off the fast closing rush of Oo La La, while Teds Plum got the show. W. Perkins made it a double when his Fantoche won the sixth from the favorite, Lady Astor, and with Prince K. landing the show end. Post Haste set a fast pace for a half mile, but quit when collared. Fantoche was a distant follower for the first half mile. The closing race brought to the post some of the well thought of tworyear-old colts and geldings, which was won by Colonel Gilmore, with Rambler in second place and his stable-mate, Dobson, getting up in time to get the short end of the purse. Jockey Albert Wilson, who was injured last Thursday, was reported improved at the general hospital in Cincinnati this afternoon. He recovered consciousness this morning for the first time and strong hopes are now held cut for his recovery. Jockey T. Koerner arrived from Huntington, W. Va. Jockey F. Murphy was a recent arrival from Toledo, where he was visiting. Moso Goldblatt Friday morning disposed of the inconsistent Centimeter to T. H. Bernhardt on private terms.
