BABA KENNY UNFORTUNATE NEW YORK, N. Y., June 11.— It was a real tragedy when Edward R. Bradleys Baba Kenny had her racing career brought to such a disastrous end in the running of the Coaching Club American Oaks. Mr. Bradley had little to look forward to with his three-year-olds beyond what racing fame would come to the daughter of Black Servant and Betty Beall, but there were high hopes that the filly would atone for the failures of the colts. She had been training magnificently for "Dick" Thompson and she was such an easy winner in her first start of the season that she was at once hailed as a keen contender for the filly crown. Before the running of the race that brought her career to such a tragic end Thompson would have preferred a fast track, but Baba Kenny had shown him ample to suggest that she could take the measure of even such an acknowledged mud-runner as Tambour. Of course Baba Kenny did not run far enough before her desperate accident to offer any suggestion of what would have happened had she been able to race all the way, but her loss to racing is a serious one to the turf and a calamity to the Bradley stable.
