JUVENILES EARN HONORS Defeat Older Rivals in Headliner at Latonia Course. Winners Share of the Stoner Creek Purse Falls to Charles T. Fishers Pre War. LATONIA, Ky., Nov. 3 Pre War, two-year-old son of Man o War and Sherbet, owned and bred by Charles T. Fisher at his Dixiana Farm in Kentucky, was the winner of the Stoner Creek Purse, a three-quarters race under allowance conditions, for all ages, and the best offering at Latonia this afternoon. Eight comprised the starting field and the three three-year-olds that made up the older representation were completely subdued by the younger performers when the Greentree Stables Jacobs Ladder and R. M. Eastmans Charley O. were second and third, as named. The track was deep and holding again, but it suited the Dixiana youngster and he was good enough to set the pace throughout. Before a quarter had been negotiated R. Finnetry had him in a long lead as Jacobs Ladder and Hoosier Prince provided the chief contention. On the turn, where the Dixiana colt continued in decisive command, Jacobs Ladder disposed of the older Hoosier Prince for second place and entering the stretch the latter also gave way to Charley O., which at this stage was going fast, after a very sluggish start? HOLDS JACOBS LADDER SAFE. Through the long stretch Pre War continued in the van and entering the final furlong rather easily, disposed of a mild threat from Jacobs Ladder, on which W. Moran had the mount. At a point just inside the last eighth Charley O. stumbled and it cost him some ground, but hardly enough to have made any difference in the result, as Jacobs Ladder led him into second place by two and one-half lengths. Hoosier Prince drove to the wire eight lengths back of Charley O. and the others were well strung out. Pre War was coupled in the betting with C. Van Dusens Black Torch and the entry was made favorite by a small margin over Charley O. Clear skies and milder weather were responsible for another large attendance and, despite the conditions encountered by the horses, several of the races resulted in bitterly fought contests. Another favorite raced to its backing when Last Attempt, from the stable of former jockey William Hinphy, and ridden by H. Bagur, outstayed Sunny Bob and Green Wave in a drive in the fifth, the first distance event of the afternoon and over one mile and one-sixteenth. The victor wore down Green Wave and Sunny Bob just inside the stretch turn and tired during the approach to the finish but had enough left 1 to get away with the honors by a half length. LADY OF GRACE GRADUATES. Lady of Grace, daughter of Waygood and The Vengeance, came through with the first winning performance of her career, which was inaugurated in September, when she ran away from Playing On and Flag Wave to win the openin grace by eight lengths. This tested eleven juvenile maiden fillies, and, while Playing On and Flag Wave were with the winner for the first three of the six furlongs, she made the running in commanding fashion thereafter. Through the stretch, Playing On outstayed Flag Wave and garnered second by one length and one-half. Durb was fourth. The winner, neglected in the betting, was ridden by W. Moran. Jaz Age accounted for his first purse in some weeks, but the tenth of the year, when he outstayed Uncle Matt in a driving finish in the second race. A length back Itso was third, with a short length to spare over Agapanthus. The victor, ridden by Chinn, was the leader from the termination of the opening three-sixteenths, but after reaching the last furlong showing the way over Uncle Matt by three lengths, tired, and it was onlyby a head that he managed to register with the popular win. Near the finish Uncle Matt also faltered, and this probably saved the victory for the winner. Itso closed strongest of the leaders, and Agapanthus turned in a fair performance to take down . fourth money. The third race, second of the card for maiden two-year-old fillies, resulted in a big surprise when Madge -De, carrying the E. P. Applegate colors, was returned the winner. She won by two lengths, with Trans- ! Continued on eighteenth page. JUVENILES EARN HONORS Continued from first page. cript second and Warble third. Mudraker, leading seven others, was fourth. Red Polly, which closed a pronounced favorite, proved a big disappointment. Eight started in the sixth, also at a mile and a sixteenth, and it resulted in a mild surprise when J. H. Pattersons Loyal Louie proved the winner. He scored at the diiect expense of Dad Meiners, also at good odds, and Zeus Prince was third. The well-backed Storm Angel tired after swinging into the last quarter in close pursuit of the" winner. J. McCoy had the mount on the Patterson gelding.
