HEAVY TRACK RACING Latonia Fields. Small as a Result But Sport Is Interesting. Ten-Lec Outlasts The Runt in Mile Claiming Race Jupiter Fails His Admirers. LATONIA, Ky., Oct 1. Heavy track conditions AA-as again the order here today. The Aveather, hoAvever, had moderated considerably and had just enough of an autumnal tinge to make topcoats a comfortable adjunct Small fields Avere again the rule in the different races. Theer was an absence of a feature as a result of the going. One of the original carded races, the second, had to be called off and, to. complete the seA-en-race card, a neAV one was substituted. While some of the more humble racers Avere called on to furnish the contests, several of the contests Avere productiAe of exciting finishes. Tho feature, a mile claiming race, fell to Ten-Lec, whiqh just managed to get up in time to down The Runt, with Bo McMillan in close proximity, and King Gorin II. also close up. Ten-Lec Avas pounds the best, but Pool rode her in blundering fashion and repeatedly took her back for no apparent cause, and it was difficult work on her part to OA-erhaul The Runt The latter, beginning AA-ell and alloAved to go about his task, moAed into a good lead at once and held on extremely A-ell, only tiring in the last few strides. Bo McMillen also showed an im-proAed performance OAer his race yesterday, and contended for the purse most of the Ayay. King Gorin II., Avhich AAas expected to be a factor, dropped far out of it for the . iiraWH? ,half.mila and caroe-steadily. AvheriifGarner Surged him. BEAUTY iSLAVE" VICTRESS. E. R. Bradleys Beauty Slave was Aictress of the fourth race, mostiybecause of the good riding she had. Bridesmaid finished second and avtis her closest contender for the entire Avay. Maximaneh Avas probably best in the race, but the incompetent Long AA-as totally at a loss Avhat to do Avitlr her and she Avas lucky to land in .third place. J. N. Camden and the Audley" Farm" Stable each had an entry in the race, but they never figured seriously. Both entries Avere extensiA-ely backed. Asaph in the opener won in handy style from Hullo, with Allie Ochs in third place. 4 Nine of the more loAVly performed here, Avith M Asaph the favored one, but a-diversified fl backing about most of the others resulted in a good price being obtainable against him. Sandalwood Avas again the medium, for heaA-y backing, but after racing into prominence before reaching the stretch turn gaA-e Avay H Avhen interfered with and brought up in thef trailing brigade. H An outstanding favorite went down tcl defeat in the second race when Jupiter gavcH AA-ay to Tender Seth after a hard stretch duel.H Tender Seth Avinningby a nose. The paiiH dominated the running for the entire Avay.B Jupiter AA-as the leader until just before H reaching the stretch, but Tender Fh rnoAvdUM into a slightvlead and retained "it to thcT.aHj end. Reel JPobiTproved best of the others, but had to 6e riddenjliard to outstay Phenol. M Doughoregan" came" in for attention mainly because of Stutts presence in the saddle, but the horse showed a dull performance. GORGET DISAPPOINTS. Another pronounced faA-orite proA-ed a dismal failure in the third race Avhen" Gorget brought up among the unplaced ones after a disappointing perfirijmance. The Avinner here turnedup mSpofl.Mc"Gee, AA-hile, saving much ground in tlfestretch by staying close to the inner rail, beat home Cherrycote. The latter raced as if best, but Pool allowed her to swerve sharply in the stretch, resulting in loss of considerable ground for her. Moms Boy, Avhich had been a sharp factor for a good part of the race, tir,ed5rjght at the end, but AA-as good enough to finish in third place. J. S. HaAA-kins colors Avere carried to vie tory for the first time in a long AAhile when his Fanny de Goursy outstayed Rosabella to land the sixth Avith Deeming following the pair home. There Avere ten starters in the race, the Headley pair, Elizabeth K., and Aviette, being the favored ones. They nevcr figured seriously in the running and Avere always far out of it Midnight Ross AA-as" responsible for a long post delay by her fractious acting and she shoAved a good per-" formance by racing forwardly for the entire Avay. Sincere, Avhich furnished a surprise yesterday by Avinning at long odds, Avas a starter here but had to carry a penalty of tweh-e pounds for her Aictory yesterday. Krishna furnished an upset Avhen he got homo before the faA-orie, Privilege, in the closing race Avith Moorfield in third place. PriA-ilege started out as if she Avould make a runaAA-ay race of it but Krishna, gaining steadily, overhauled her in "thejSlast eighth. "Moorfield,, after having ViteefeforjWardly, seemed done Avhen racing in th: s trVtclitbu t came again right at the end and--vas5press-ing Privilege for second place. - . .
