Enquirer Enquirer Handicap Handicap to to Speedy Speedy Actuary; Actuary; Hephaistos Hephaistos Victor Victor in in Brooklyn Brooklyn Handicap Handicap BREAKSTRACK RECORD1 ♦ Actuary Shows Great Speed in Winning Latonias Feature. i Largest Attendance of Meeting — Jockey Garner Rides Three Winners in Succession. % LATONIA, Ky.. June 14.— Jefferson Livingstons high-priced Actuary accounted for the Enquirer Handicap at Latonia today, the race carrying a net value of ,340 to the winner in addition to an ornate silver cup, .donated by Mr. E. B. McLean. Following the winner several lengths back came Alice Blue Gown, with Audacious in third place and j Hopeless fourth. The race was at a mile and a sixteenth and was run in the fast time Sof 1:43, a new track record for the distance. It was the first time since Actuary has been transferred to the Livingston ownership that he has performed to the expectations of Ms connections and his shewing this afternoon bordered on the sensational. In a preceding start he was left at the post, refusing on that occasion to begin with the others. Trainer Coyne hit upon the suggestion of removing the blinkers the celt heretofore has carried and it proved a happy thought, for Actuary today was on his best post behavior, began fast and, moving into a long lead, raced as if he enjoyed his task and I j kept in the van for the entire way to win j | well under restraint. I • Startle was Actuarys closest follower in ; the early part, but she readily gave way to Alice Blue Gown when the latter made her bid. She was not good enough, however, but continuing gamely held Audacious safe. Audacious had been close up in the first ! three quarters, but his heavy impost caused ] -him to tire just before reaching the stretch. j He appeared then as if he would not get i a part of the purse, but he came gamely in ! j the last eighth and fought it out hard with j | Hopeless and aowned him in the last few , ; strides. The erratic Exodus again showed i j a pcor performance and brought up in last place. MAYOR PRESENTS CUP. Mayor George Carrel of Cincinnati, on behalf , of the Cincinnati Enquirer, presented the cup to trainer Coyne, acting for Jefferson Livingston, who is at present in New York. The owner had intended being here to witness Actuary race today, but was detained by pressing business. By far the largest attendance that has been at Latonia this year was on hand to 1 witness the sport and attending incidents. The racing was highly exciting even if favorites were downed with regularity. A feature of the afternoon was the good riding; of jockey Garner. He had just returned to i the saddle after a ten days suspension for rough riding on Glide, victress in the Kentucky Oaks and disqualified for fouling. Garner rode three of the winners in succession, inaugurating his success with Brunswick and i following in succession on Crayon and Actuary. Substantial prices were obtained by his followers against all the mounts he rede ! and after Actuarys victory Garner was given 1 a rousing reception. The fourth race, a three-quarters sprint, » resulted in the fastest run race of the meeting at the distance, when speedy Crayon, but lightly regarded, was the winner in 1:10%, closely followed by Dudley, with Alchemy also close up in third place. The winner displayed extreme speed and I headed her opponents soon after the start, | never to relinquish her advantage thereafter, i The compactness of those racing in her wake caused some interference. Sun Flag , and Certain being sufferers as a result. Pud-ley was lucky to escape by having an outer .position and he came with determination in I the stretch but was unable to overhaul the ? leader. Alchemy, racing with great speed I ■in the last eighth, steadily overhauled Sun l Flag, which had moved into a contending ; position, but the Cochran representative could l not withstand Alchemys final rush. Certain l raced fairly well and so did Dustabout, which closed a big gap in the last quarter r after a slow beginning. UKTKIJiUKSE GOOD LOOKER. 10. It. Bradleys good looking and appropriately named Betelgueso, by North Star r III. — Tranid, graduated from the maiden j ranks with a good performance in the sec-■ ond race in which he met eleven other well ; considered youngsters. He raced forward ly f Continued on sixteenth page.

The latter was given an energetic ride and the change from Carroll to Garner worked a great improvement in his running. Annihilator might have been second, but for the interference he suffered when Harrington, on Son of Tromp, rode roughly. The offending rider was suspended for ten days by the stewards for his rough work. Former Senator J. N. Camdens Cinnamon furnished an outstanding upset when she won from Rural Route and other good two-year-olds starting in the sixth. The winner raced as if. best. He was forced back soon after the start and responded in game style when urged hard and wore down Rural Route in the last sixteenth. Rural Route showed good form and shook off King Nadi in the first half mile, but began tiring near the end. Gallaher Brothers added a purse to their account when King Tut won in handy fashion in the concluding race from Blue Nose, with Bona Vera following. Mah Jong was the favored one, but the fast pace she was .subjected to by Ballot Brush in the first three-quarters caused her to collapse. It also did for Ballot Brush, which quit almost to a walk. Ballot Brush was making his first start in the colors of Williams Brothers, who claimed him in a previous start. They lost him in the race, E. J. Holland, represented by Paulina, claiming him at a cost of ,200.
