PENNCOTE DISAPPOINTS Beaten by Counsellor Crane in First Juvenile Handicap. Defeat of Odds-On Choice at Latonia Biggest Surprise of Meeting Substitute Race Run. LATONIA, Ky., July 26. Penncote, the highly regarded daughter of Pennant and Cherrycote, which races for Young Brothers, provided one of the biggest upsets of the Latonia Jockey Club season when she finished second to Foley Brothers Counsellor Crane in the five and one-half furlongs Arcade Handicap, the main attraction of the program this afternoon. J. W. Parrishs New Deal was third, and Devereaux Brothers Brustigert was fourth to complete the distance in the first handicap offered here this season for two-year-olds. Five were named overnight for the juvenile test, but Ding Bin was withdrawn this morning. On the strength of her three previous consecutive victories here, Penncote was installed a 3 to 5 choice and the only solace found in her defeat was that the filly raced wide throughout. She was asked to carry top weight of 118 pounds, while the winner was in with 109 and New Deal shouldered 113. While Brustigert was the first in motion, Jimmy Smith lost little time in getting the winner to the front, and the son of Gertie and Lucy Churchill increased his advantage in the run to the stretch. Beginning last of the field, Penncote moved up on the outside of Brustigert near the three-eighths post and soon had the latter headed. Swinging into the stretch, S. Renick steered the filly wide and although she made a mild challenge near the three-sixteenths post, Counsellor Crane drew away under light urging and the finish found him three lengths in the van of the favorite, which enjoyed the same advantage over New Deal. H. L. Fisher, who rode Brustigert, came back with a swollen eye, and that probably accounted for the Devereaux juvenile dropping back so fast in the final furlong. Counsellor Crane raced on the inside soon after the start and ran . the distance in 1:07, which was fine time considering the condition of the track. ADVERSE TRACK CONDITIONS. For the first time in three weeks, an adverse track prevailed for the sport. A light drizzle that started during the training hours left the racing strip sloppy for the opening of the program. This caused the cancellation of the regular fourth race, and a substitute affair at six furlongs was installed in its place. Although the rain ceased after the running of the second race, the weather remained cloudy and the unpleasant conditions caused a decrease in the attendance. A small field of seven started in the substitute, for which Smear was the favorite, and it resulted in a mild surprise when the veteran Cayuga, now in his eighth year, led Deemster, Smear and the four others to the finish. Although Deemster was the first under way, the Shady Brook farm representative soon had command and despite his big lead, Karl Horvath took no chances Continued on nineteenth page.

After racing in third place for a half mile, Camp Boss tired and Smear and Yar-nallton, the latter finishing fourth, passed him in the run through the stretch. Showing a preference for the sloppy going, C. E. Hamiltons Masked Prince lasted to beat Jav Vee in the five and one-half furlongs dash that opened the program, for which Roulade was favorite. Brilliant Rose was third, a nose before Lovie, which gave way afte- forcing the pace to the stretch. Eleven juveniles met in the race, with Masked Prince taking command immediately and holding sway throughout. Tadcaster, making his second start of the meeting, rewarded for the talent when he was ridden out in accounting for the second race that attracted a field of eleven at six furlongs. Second went to Miss Mary Lou, a "fielder," with Imelda third. Racing Imelda and Miss Mary Lou into defeat in the opening three-eighths, the four-year-old son of Wise Counsellor continued well under strong urging to have a two lengths lead over Miss Mary Lou at the finish. The placed trio dominated the pace, while Bill Lutz, which received good support, failed to menace the leaders. The third race, engaging a limit field of maiden two-year-old colts and geldings, at five and one-half furlongs, was productive of a mild surprise when Dusty Dawn was returned an easy winner. Captain Henry, the favorite, was second and Woodlander third. Ridder by Jimmy Smith, the son of Golden Broom and Hasty Chick lost little time in taking command and, gradually disposing of Captain Henry, beat the latter by two lengths. With the exception of the opening three-eighths, where Atmosphere headed Woodlander, the others failed to offer any opposition. A close finish and the biggest surprise of the afternoon came with the running of the mile and a quarter sixth race, for which Orchestration was favorite, when Sweet One lasted to beat Vesee, which was -a nose before Orchestration. Nine started, and after disposing of High Diver in the opening seven-eighths, the winner held on gamely to repulse the fast finishing Vesee.
