SCORES LUCKY VICTORY S ■ t- G T. S. Jordan Furnishes Big Upset in Latonias Feature Race. Success Due in Great Measure to p H Blunders of Riders of Buster « u and Braedalbane. p g — • m m n LATONIA, Ky., June 12.— The ,700 purse n of race at three-quarters of a mile, serving as a the feature, furnished an outstanding upset u of Latonias racing Thursday, when T. S. Jordan, one of the outsiders, annexed the purse from Buster and Braedalbane. It was a lucky victory and the blunders on the part s of J. Corcoran and D. Hum, respective riders D of Buster and Braedalbane, contributed in ■ his success. Favored by the light weight, T. S. Jordan * promptly moved into contention and when j Hum took Braedalbane back he assumed q command and, rounding the first turn, had I a lengths advantage. At this stage Braedal- ri bane was his closest attendant, but for some I 0 reason Hum eased back and allowed Buster to move into second place. Buster and Braedalbane were ridden wide in the stretch and later Buster was allowed to come to the 1 j inside. He finished gamely and only missed [ r wearing T. S. Jordan down by a short mar- ■ j gin. Had Corcoran kept him on a straight course he would have reversed the decision t r with the winner. Braedalbans was probably - ■ unsuited by the slightly "cuppy" track - J j though the time of the race — 1 :12— would J indicate that the going was bordering on fast. ■ | Sultry heat was the order here this after- • r noon, but a generous patronage was on hand I 1 despite an overcast sky and prospects of a i downpour. Well matched fields furnished 1 the contests and served as good speculative mediums. The public fared well and were successful in selecting most of the winners, even T. S. Jordan coming in for considerable attention from them. EASY FOB PARODY. An ordinary band began the racing with , a dash at three-quarters and it showed up , Parody to be pounds the best of those she 2 : met. The imported filly had been a starter p . here last week and on that occasion Martin handled her listlessly, but he was all alert- ness today ; got her away from the post fast . and, energetically ridden, she moved into the lead at once and increased her advantage throughout, winning by as far as her rider p pleased. The Competitor, coming strong „ J through the stretch, landed in second place ■ and Lady Marian also came from far back u to finish in third place. Farody was lost I to Hal Price Headley, the Portsmouth Stable, represented by Miss America, claiming _ | | her at a cost of ,900. Considering the im- _ pressiveness of her victory in good time over the dull track she appears well worth the claiming price. The Idle Hour Farms good filly Buckwheat t Cake graduated from the maiden ranks in j i . the second race, in which she proved superior to those she met and won well under restraint, " after having led for the entire way. Valletta at good odds, finished in second A plate, outstaying Beulah Stone for that portion •-j of the purse. Buckwheat Cake was an overwhelming favorite and her backers never | had much misgivings over the result, for she j was away well and at all times held her | opponents safe. The Belair Studs filly Sun Spot, which h has been regarded in high favor, won her I initial purse here when she led home five I I others in the third race at a mile and a | sixteenth. . She led for the entire way and d was well in hand at the finish. Firetoma was her closest follower TKl the start, but lt had to be urged hard at the end to outstay J Raider. The latter was kept far out of it for the first half mile, but he came in resolute style during the stretch and continued j going gamely to the end. Untried began dropping out of it after she had gone prominently ■ to the stretch turn. APPLEGATE COLORS IX FROXT. Ocean Current, carrying W. E. Applegates J colors, was the winner in the fifth, which brought to the pest a good band of youngsters. r He had to be ridden hard to overhaul Elsass, while Special finished in third place. Ksass had rushed into a good lead soon after the start and at the stretch turn appeared , the winner, but Ocean Current would not be denied and, continuing resolutely, succeeded in overhauling the leader in the last twenty yards. Wuhu might have been . formidable, but Martin took him back immediately after the start and rode listlessly ? until the spread came at the stretch turn, where Wuhu saved ground and, when called d on, he responded well. The newcomer, Benedict Vow, also raced promisingly. Belief that J. N. Camdens Hunter would jj| again bleed caused many to refrain from giving him the consideration he was entitled ,j to have, resulting in Sizzle being the choice in j_ the sixth race. Hunter raced without being 1r overtaken by mishaps and it accounted for r his victory, but by the narrowest kind of a a _ Continued on sixteenth page. v j J SCORES LUCKY VICTORY Continued from first page. margin, for Sizzle challenged in the gamest kind of style in the last eighth and it took L. McDermotts best riding skill to make Hunter last it out to get the verdict. The showing of Daughter Dear, a newcomer here, I was another outstanding surprise in the race I for she closed an immense gap from a poor beginning and outlasted Mill Boy for third i place. Tha closing race, bringing to the post some of the better-classed platers, furnished the most exciting finish of the meeting and it likewise brought some dissent from some of the disgruntled backers of Make Up when the award was given to Best Pal. His margin was of the shortest, with Welcome close up in third place. Make Up was pounds the best and succumbed only through the faulty ride that Pevic gave him. He began somewhat faultily, but raced fcrwardly and his rider anticipating getting cut off at the first turn began taking him back with the result that he was far out of it in the run down the back stretch. He made a valient effort to overhaul Best Pal in the stretch, but just missed getting up.
