A WONDERFUL RACE NEW YORK, N. Y., Sept 27. "A great race worth coming a thousand miles to see," were Colonel Matt Winns first words to C. F. Dwyer, of the Queens County Jockey Club, immediately following the finish of the International Special. "Your track is fortunate in having been the scene of two of the finest contests that the great sport of horse . racing has ever provided. This race will be remembered and talked about long after the Man o War-John P. Grier battle is forgotten. "Our Latonia track is equally fortunate in that it will be the battleground for what I believe will prove Epinard a fairer chance to show his best and that is a test over the mile and a quarter route. Racing luck decides nearly all races that are as open a proposition as todays special and it plays an even greater part in a mile race than of ten furlongs. "Latonia will be prepared to handle the greatest crowd in its history and, if the weather man is as kind to us, we may see as fine a horse race as the one I have just witnessed."
