WHITNEY VICTORY His Colt Beats Almadel in a Close Finish. Jockey Parke Much in Limelight Riding Four Winners and One Third in Five Mounts. LEXINGTON, Ky., Nov. 22. Harry Payne "Whitneys Candy Kid, ably ridden by Ivan Parke, accounted for the Breeders Futurity, carrying a net value of 5,984.50, in a close finish with Almadel, carrying Hal Price Headleys silks. Annihilator, owned by Anderson and Kendel, finished third, with Step Along in fourth place. For the first time in four years the race was run without a marring incident that detracted from the victory. It was devoid of the rough riding that has prevailed during past years. On one occasion the rough work of one rider caused E. R. Bradleys Betty Beall to be disqualified, and her owner to lose the rich prize as a result of her disqualification. The jockeys were warned before the race that the least semblance of unfair tactics would result in revocation of their riding licenses, with every prospect of it not being restored for a period of at least a year. The warning had the desired effect, for the riders , were overly cautious to commit no breach, and the result was that a clean, decisive race was the outcome. II OV RACE WAS ItTJN. Candy Kid, while not suited by the stiff going that prevailed, raced as if best. He was kept in restraint, a close follower of the speedy Oh Susanna, and moved into the lead after three-eighths when Parke called on him, and he won by a short half length, but he had to be ridden out in the last sixteenth to keep in the van of the fast-coming Almadel. The latter began slowly, but he responded in fine style after being straightened out for the stretch sprint, and he was going faster than the winner at the finish. Annihilator, which landed in third place, was lucky to get that portion of the purse, for had Step Along been away more forwardly lie would have been in third place at least Step Along closed an immense gap during the last quarter. Oh Susanna, after showing the way until rounding the stretch, faded completely and was in last place at the finish. Second money was worth ,657 ; third money, 2,328.50, and fourth money was 15. Kentucky racing terminated this afternoon for this year with a large representative attendance at the Kentucky Association course, despite cold and threatening weather. It was an enthusiastic gathering, unmindful of any discomfort and bent on enjoying their outing to its utmost. REVERSALS OF F 01131. The racing was spirited and close enough finishes came to suit the most exacting. The day was not devoid of a jarring incident. This was primarily due to the suddenly improved periormances shown by King Nadi and Georgie. The first named was in with some fast sprinters that engaged in the secondary feature over the Futurity course. He won with ridiculous ease over another two-year-old, Iiothermel, which led Pindar Peel and Alice Blue Gown at the finish. King Nadis performance was in striking contrast to his previous essay several days ago. On that occasion he was far in the rear in a field of two-year-olds, performing then as if he was palpably short and out of form. It was a different King Nadi today, for he displayed immense speed and led his opponents for the entire way to score as his rider elected in the fast time of 1:11, a full second better than Candy Kid ran in the Breeders Futurity. Stewards Hay and T. C. Bradley, who took I W. H. Shelleys place for the day, promptly had owner John Troxler to explain King Nadis acrobatic performance, but the owner evidently convinced the stewards of no wrongdoing for no action was taken. The public, however, took King Nadis victory with bad grace, for it was one of the worst form som-mersaults of the Kentucky racing season. Georgics success developed in the last race. It was a vastly different Georgie that raced this afternoon under Parkes guidance than that which performed under Garners list-lessness in a previous start. Garner had him far in the wake of the others; Parke had him in front from the start and he led home the others to win with much in reserve and won from Untried and Huonec.

He rode four of the winners, inaugurating his success with Sari in the second race and followed this victory with one on Macbeth in the next race. He also rode Candy Kid in the Breeders Futurity, which was assisted to his victory by good riding. He closed the day and the season in Kentucky with a score on Georgie. He had five mounts during the afternoon. His other mount, Shark, finished in third place, The Badger winning in a tight fit from Lucky Drift, with Shark close up and steadily wearing down the leading pair. The fall meeting, which just terminated, came up to expectations of the management. Fall racing here has never been a financial success and this meeting was no exception. The Kentucky Association is an old-established institution, had its inception in 1S26, ninety-eight years ago, and has been the pride of . all racing devotees in Kentucky, particularly those in the Blue Grass region. Under able management by Messrs. Sewell Combs and T. C. Bradley it has been maintained on a high standard and it has grown in social eclat. A suspension of the racing here would be felt keenly, throughout Kentucky and those most interested in the sport who are associated as stockholders willingly share in the slight deficit that occurs. It is one of manager Bradleys ambitions in life to bring about the financial success of the meeting and he is. sanguine that, the day is not far distant when he will attain his object.
