GALLANT FILLY GLIDE 3 Shows Return to Her Best Form in Sparkling Race. Accounts for Hawthornes Main Race and Lowers Track Record Doing So. , 1 HAWTHORNE RACE TRACK, Aug. 27. 1 The crack filly Glide, first but disqualified 1 in this years Kentucky Oaks, in which she ; triumphed over the best of her age and sex, showed a return of good form when she won in sparkling fashion in the Gene La Rue i Purse at a mile and seventy yards and lowered the former track record of 1:43 by one- s fifth of a second. Her success was in the 1 most impressive fashion and she was well 1 kinder restraint at the end. Miss Meise and ! pricemakcr were the contending ones with her 1 at the finish with Miss Meise beating Price- 1 maker by a matter of inches for second place. It was Glides third start here, having been on the shelf as a result of an injury sus- tained early in the Latonia meeting. Her preceding races were not of a nature to en- j thuso over. Her first essay smacked much of a qualifying process but she raced improved in her next start, encouraging her , connections that she was rounding into form . again. The public had confidence in her j ability for they supported her generously even , it the odds about her ruled short i She raced under restraint for more than , three-quarters, but when Fronk urged her she responded gallantly and drew out in the last eighth to win with much in reserve. In addition to the purse her owners received an ornate cup. It marked Glides last perform- : anco in Harned Brothers and Jones colors for she was announced as having been sold to G. C. Cudahy with My Dream for 5,000. Mr. Cudahy takes over the two fillies tomorrow and they will be trained by T. E. Middleton. i With the near close of the racing season here seems to come more widespread interest in the sport and a surprisingly large attendance wras again at Hawthorne to view the racing. The program attracted representatives of the better grade horses in these parts and several of the contests were decidedly interesting and closely fought. TWO FOR M. LOWEySTEiy. Mose Lowenstein got into the limelight during the afternoon with a double victory, the lirst two purses going to members of his establishment The successful ones wrere Ivy and Louise Wagner. It marked the first victories that either scored during the meeting. In Ivys case it almost marked her first success in her racing career. 1 Jockey Earl Pool was mostly responsible for ilvys victory for he succeeded in coming through a small opening at the stretch turn which enabled her to slip into the lead and later Avin handily from the intended "good thing" Cherrycote, the half-sister to the noted Eternal. Cherrycote promised extensively but began tiring in the last sixteenth. The favorite, Keaolani, showed a dull performance and Conway had no difficulty landing in third place. Louise Wagner was lucky to be away fast and, showing good speed under an alert ride, jhung on just long enough to beat home the ifavorite, Hitrump, which had to be ridden iwide from his outer post position, but foe came with a rush right at the end. JOTJETT IN FAST TIME. The best performance of the afternoon came witli the closing race from a time standpoint when the erratic but fast Jouett, carrying the colors of Senator Allie W. jYoung, displayed brilliant speed and won With consummate ease in the fast time of 11:42, which represented four-fifths of a second better than the time made by Glide. jPool never gave Jouett a chance to sulk. He got him away forwardly and, under the terrific urging that the rider subjected him to, headed the field in the first eighth and thereafter showed the way throughout. For only a brief period in the stretch was Jouett threatened, but his inclinaiicn to retire was curbed by a vicious cut of Pools whip and he held on to his task to ultimately win well in hand from Plus "Ultra, with Kufiya in third place. Like Glide, Jouett was a pronounced favorite. I Everglade showed by his good victory in the third race that his previous victory was no fluke, for he came right back in the same impressive fashion to win with much .in reserve after having allowed Keegan and Lorena Marcellia to make the running until the stretch was reached. He responded gamely when Stutts put him to the test and !he won cemmandingly from the outsider, Max Brick, which came with a great rush right at the end to head Lorena Marcellia. The fifth race brought out a field of well-matched ones and it enabled Elias O. to win Jjy virtue of tho ground he saved at the stretch turn. Margaret Ware, one of the outsiders, coming with a fine display of speed in the last sixteenth, got up to beat home Pud, the fa.vcritet for second place.
