CRYSTAL FORD SET BACK Finishes First in Main Race at Youngstown, But Is Disqualified. YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, Oct 25. A disqualification marred the running of the Ohio Hotel Purse, todays feature attraction at the Youngstown course. Crystal Ford was the victim, as Fames cut over in front of the others with the gelding shortly after the start and forced all his opponents, which were running in a bunch, to pull up, narrowly avoiding a bad fall. From there on it was all Crystal Ford, he never being in danger thereafter and no doubt the best and would possibly have been returned winner had he been allowed to race on the outside. Cromwell finished second, Heap third and Lady Londridge fourth and the judges did not hesitate in disqualifying the winner and moving the horses up a notch. Quanah won the secondary feature with ease from Bigwig and Goldstein. Jockey C. Haines piloted Quanah and Locust Leaves to victory but marred his good work by his ride on Crystal Ford. W. A. McKinney purchased High Gear from A. E. Alexandra at private sale and tho gelding ran in his new owners interest in the seventh race. O. Long, acting for Padgett and Dougherty, sold Bob Baker and Blue Dale to M. E. Thompson. Jockey D. Fouts drew a five-day suspension for rough riding in the first race. Hong Kong Stable bought Lasting Love from A. Morgan at private terms. Trainer II. McGarvey was fined 0 for loud talking on the track after the first race.
