SERIES OF CLAIMING RACES Provided-, at Youngstown Track For Tuesdays Sport. i Locarno Scores After Thrilling Stretch Duel With Fcodor in Sixth Race Jockey Hart Suspended. YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, Oct. 21. A series -of claiming races made up the program at Southern Park today and, despite the chilly weather, a fair week day crowd was on hand. Most interest centered in the running of the fifth race, a six and a half furlongs dash, which was won by O. L. Fosters Locarno after a thrilling stretch duel with Feodor. The latter cut out the early running and set a fast pace but after going a half mile Labelle called on Locarno and the son of Sain responded with good courage, caught the leader midway of the stretch and earned the verdict by a neck. Cock o the Roost saved third place from Uncle Velo. After the race the stewards handed down the following ruling: "Jockey F. Hunt is suspended indefinitely for an unsatisfactory ride on Locarno on October 16. The horse was beaten on that day after having been taken off the pace by Jockey Hunt On October 21, in a much better field and ridden by Labelle, Locarno raced near the leaders and won going away. Signed G. Leonard, presiding steward." Blue Dale scored his third straight victory and his second of the present meeting when he easily defeated the band that opposed him in the second race. The son of Ormesdale began quickly and soon opened up a safe lead, which he held to the finish. Midnight Stories was always closest to the leader and finished second, while Ciceronian was third. The third race was productive of the closest finish of the day when the first three horses flashed over the finish line noses apart, with Peter Combs getting the verdict over Full Moon, with Havana Electric third. Peter Combs showed fine speed from the start and was soon in front by a comfortable margin, but when the stretch was roached he tired and was ridden out at the finish and just lasted long enough to win. Full Moon finished fastest of all and would have won fii another jump. It was the fourth straight victory for the winner. A. E. Alexandra was an arrival from Long Branch with twelve head. The apprentice riders R. Punshon and W. Marriner accompanied the string. Thomas and Weller claimed Acosta from B. Trayer for 00 out of the fourth race. Mrs. H. D. Cox claimed Lady Longridge from H. W. Barnes yesterday for ?1,600. Jockey J. Jones was suspended for two days yesterday for disobedience at the post. E. E. Major, who was a visitor yesterday, departed for Columbus last night. Jockey J. Cedar was suspended for five days for rough riding in the last race yesterday.
