CREAM PUFF SET BACK ♦ . First Disqualification of the Year in Kentucky. ■ Ocean Current Placed First, Foreign Relations Second and Tangara Third. • . LRXINGTON. Ky.. May 6.— The first disqualification in Kentucky this year came this afternoon in the fifth race, when Cream Puff, after heating Ocean Current, was set back to last pmce and Ocean Current given the purse. Foreign Relations, which had originally finished third, was placed second and Tangara was given third place. The interference that caused Cream Puffs disqualification came in the last eighth when Ocean Current, attempting to come through n !Xt the inner rail and Cream Puff. Stutts, on the latter, either allowed cream Puff to swerve a trifle or pulled over against the inner rail, with the result that Ocean Current was bl icked. She never fully recovered thereafter, but held second place safe. Cream Puff, after the mishap, went on to win by a comfortable margin. Foreign Relations, coming with a rush. landed in third place. Pool lodged a claim of foul asainst the winner on his return, but steward Hay had before that begun an interrogation of the riders on Uomp and Stutls. After Pool and Stutts had been heard, the atOWarda ordered the disqualification of Cream Puff. Ocean Current was favorite and the award seemed popular. Ocean CltTWtl victory completed a double for W. K. Applegate for the afternoon, his New Peauty having won in the preceding race, a three-quarters dash from some fairly go :d ones. She was ridden by L. McOermott, who hustled htr along from the start and kept her in front fc r the entire way to win from Odd Seth. with Mexican Tea in third place. There was .;ome well thought of ones .starting in the race and it gave the claiming brigade an opoortunity to replenish their htables. Queer was the only one sjught and she went to F. Wielands stable at a cost of 52.300. IDF A I. RACING CONDITIONS. Line weather agiin prevails here and it contributed towards bringing out a big crowd to the track. The well-matched fields caused an increase in the volume of speculation. The track was in perfect condition, the shower before race time settling the dust. The opening dash brought to pest a band of ordinary ones, with the first time startt r Arnlalika. a supposed good thing. She went the way of a majority of good things and brought up outside of the placed three. The veteran Based 1 lay, racing in his best form and saving much ground into the stretch, .stiee. ed.-d in overhauling the leaders to win fiom My Valet, with Nimrod, the early leader, retaining third place. Maiden two-year-olds, twelve in number, comprised the li-ld in the second race and l esha Breckinridges Belpre. ably ridden by Mack Carrier and lucky, won handily fro;n Pad Lack and Captain Schnelh-r. There was an unusual amount of crowding soon after the start which forced Subtle, one of the favorites, lack and practieally eliminated her from contention. Ivory ridden by Pool lunged at the start and disabled the rider for a time, when her head cam.- in contact with Pools chin. Ne-lehen, another ■tarter, acted fractiously while at the post and after throwing her rider a couple of times reared back and fell heavily, ah* bringing to the ground one of the assistant start, rs who had hold of her while riderless. The inexperienced It. Fisher again figured extensively in the third race and lost on Punice Bailey a race- that she should have won easily. He also almost caused the fall of Norah as well as himself when he raced up on her at the first turn when a jam came. As a result of the mishandling that Kurii.e Bailey had it enabled Muskeg to win out. Bvaiea Bailey leaded in second place with the competitor in third place.
