CHILHOWEE LOWERS ANOTHER TIME RECORD Wins Latonia Championship Stakes in - Wonderful Display of Speed Leads All the Way by Wide Margin and Establishes . New American Mark in Mile and Three-Quarters Mad Play Sec-ond and Aga Khan Third LATONIA, Ky., Oct. 18. Gallaher Brothers fast three-year-old Chilhowee, which performed . sensationally in a preceding start, on which occasion he established a new American record for the mile and an eighth, came right back this afternoon with another spectacular race to win the Latonia Championship Stakes and placed another American record in the discard by running a mile and three-quarters in 2:54, a full second better than that made by Rockminister in the same race in 1022. Aside from the time performance, Chilhoweo made his opponents appear ordinary, for he won with ridiculous ease under hard restraint and by as wide a margin as his rider, Garner, elected. Following Chilhowes to the finish came Mad Play, many lengths before Aga Khan. The race was a procession during the last half mile, with Priscilla Ruley the whipper-in. It marked the third 3 successive victory that Garner has scored in the race. He rode In Merraoriam last year when he took the measure of Zev and My Own. The previous year he won with Rock-minister. Todays race had a gross value of 4,525, of which the winners net portion amounted to 5,935. In his customary style Chilhowee at once went into the lead and his followers for three-quarters kept closely in his wake. Priscilla Ruley had enough after going a mile and dropped out of it completely. Her place as runner-up was taken by Graeme, which soon gave way to Mad Play. The mile and a quarter found Aga Khan moving up fast, but Chilhowee was never in great danger of being displaced of the lead, for Garner continued to hold him under restraint and moved away at his leisure whenever there was a semblance of a challenge for the lead by the others. Chilhcwce was given free rein just before reaching the stretch and he moved away from Mad Play like a. shot and during the last eighth was only cantering and at that won in hollow fashion by eight lengths. Mad Play was decidedly tired, but good enough to beat Aga Khan by five lengths for second place. Flame was far back and half a length in frcnt of Graeme, with Priscilla Ruley being eased up. An ornate silver cup also went to the victor. It was presented on behalf of the Kentucky Jockey Club by former Senator Johnson N. Camden to Allen Gallaher, who, with John Gallaher and Sewell Combs, owns Chilhowee. LATOIHA MEETIIfO ENDS. Latonias autumn meeting terminated this afternoon under the most pleasing auspices. Weather and track conditions were ideal, while the attendance was fully up to expectations. The running of the rich Latonia Championship Stakes was a big magnet to attract the throng. Col. Matt J. Winn was eminently satisfied with the Latonia meeting and he had good cause to be. The scene now shifts to Churchill Downs, where a fifteen-day meeting will get under way Thursday. While the best of the racing for older horses has been witnessed here, the two-year-old championship will be determined at Churchill Downs when the best of the western eligibles, including Kentucky Cardinal, meet with-the best from the east in the valuable Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes, which will be run November 1. The crack Pas Seul beat home a good band of juveniles in the sixth race. It did not look so promising for the Camden representative when Pool was forced to take him back in the first quarter when several of the others came across him. He saved much ground into the stretch, however, and he won drawing out fast in the last eighth. Elsass, which had shown good speed throughout, outstayed False Face for second place. L. FAT O ItS WEIRD RIDE. One of the most weird rides that has been seen in years at Latonia was that put up by L Fator astride Arabian in the second race. He got him off poorly and kept him under the stoutest kind of restraint in last place, in spite of the horses eagerness to race forwardly. He also had him all over the track and, when he finally allowed the horse to race" to the leaders, he came like a shot, but, when about to pass Plus "Ultra, the offending rider let Arabian swerve out badly, with the result that Plus Ultra beat him home by a neck. The ride occasioned adverse comment from the big throng. Fator after the race claimed a foul, but no Interference was apparent at any time and the stewards ignored the claim. Continued on twelfth Dace. CHILHOWEES FAST RACE Continued from first page. In contrast to his poor riding on Arabian was Fators good work on Braedalbane, running for the first time in the colors of Mose Goldblatt He was alert at the post, hustled him into the lead and outmaneuvered and outgeneraled Pool on Brunswick during the entire way, with the result that Braedalbane won by a short half length from Brunswick. Pindar Peel finished, in third place. The leading pair had the race between themselves throughout and Fators superior ride brought about Braedalbanes victory. The opening race fell to Belzoni, favorite, "making his first start in a long while. He had to be lucky to win and the good ride that Pool gave him contributed, to his success. During the early stages he was a laggard and it tock hard urging to keep him in striking distance of the leaders, but he found his stride a quarter out and, saving ground also, he wore down Diomed steadily to win by half a length. Diomed was easily best of the others and finished in advance of Untried. The closing race of the meeting fell to Nogales in a spirited finish, with Frank Gailor and Elias O. in third place. Frank Gailor forced a fast pace and it was only in the last strides that he gave way to Nogales strong closing rush. Elias O. might have won, but suffered interference and poor riding. 4
