The rate had its reappointment in t. the Kenton Farm Stables Ceneral Haldeman which, after obtaining the best of the start, dropped out of contention and never figured prominently at any future stage. His was a dismal performance and quite the opposite of his best, or at least the best of his earlier racing. He was the betting choice of the great crowd. Todays patronage was the second largest of the meeting, the attendance being exceeded I only by the Derby Day turnout. The throng and enthusiastic as it was as representative was large, and seemed to relish the sport offered under ideal conditions. BOOT TO BOOT BUKAKS RECORD. The fourth race, foremost of the supporting attractions, brought the first new track record of the current meeting, 10. K. Bradleys Boot to Boot running one mile and .seventy yards in 1 :41:f. to defeat the Park View Stables Khinock, C. F. Croissants Kentucky Cardinal and three others from the older division. The winner gave one of the finest performances of his career, finishing the test a half length in advance of the ever troublesome and capable Khinock. which raced from last place in the final half mile to offer his sturdy but vain challenge through the stretch. Boot to Boot was reserved behind the pace of Caractus until but three eighths remained unfinished. At this juncture he flashed into the lead, the last turn finding him two lenglhs in front of Cupids Curse, which had supplanted Caractus in second place. An eighth closer to the end Ithinoek dashed into second place and steadily moved to the fast running leader, but he was mt to be overtaken and Khinock bad to be contented with second place. Kentucky Cardinal finished fast and he was an easy third. Cupids Curse, Paveen and Caractus, the other starteis. following him in the order named.

E. K. BKAIM.K.Y IMIIHI.R. Breakfast Pell, under a ride that verged on the wild by Coldie .lolmson, completed a double fur the Idle Hour Farm colors of Mr. Bradley, when she rushed up in the last fifty yards of three-quarters of a mile to snatch top honors from T. S. Jordan in the Turkey Ridge Purse. The winner worked her way into second place in the back stretch and ; benefited much by impeding the course ol several of her rivals before Johnson elected to send her after T. S. Jordan. Near the finish T. S. Jordan tired badly when collared and Breakfast Hell was speeding away at the end. Third place fell to Chicago, on which N. Meal had the mount. 1 The stewards, acting quickly, suspended Johnson for the remainder of the meeting , after giving he youthful rider a hearing after the race. Contiuued on eighteenth pace. 3 L T. COOPER COLORS Continued from first page The veteran sprinter Sandy Hatch was returned an c asy victor over eight other fair ones in the opening dash of three-quarters. Under the apprentice Bubois, he covered the three-quarters in 1 :11%, which was quite too speedy for his opponents, of which Banter finished in second place and Muldoon third. Banter was rather weakly ridden and, with a better judged ride, might have offered stronger opposition. Henry Horner led eleven other maiden two-year-olds in the second, and the victor won by a good margin from War Eagle, with Creek Indian third. Most support was accorded the successful horse, and his win was popular. Saar, racing in his best form and well ridden, registered without great effort in the third race, in which Fuo accounted for second place and Tilka the smallest part of the purse. The winner closely attended the early-pace of Jack Knight but moved into command during the final turn and pulled away. Fuo made up ground, as did Tilka. The race was somewhat marred by a poor start, in which Dolly Bay was the chief sufferer. Terry OMalley is meeting with a generous response from officials of the Kentucky Jockey flub and Batonia horsemen in his appeal for financial assistance for the widow of C. .1. Biockmiller. former horseman, who died a few days ago in a St. Bouis hospital.
