Pair Cross Finish Line Inches Apart, With Decision in Doubt Until Judges Award — Another Disqualification. 9 LATONIA, Ky., June 26.— The presenta-1- tion at Latonia Wednesday was devoid of any special feature, the entire eight races being given over to performers of the claim-e ing class. The fifth, engaging distance per-1, forming platers, was about the best race of I | the day, in fact it brought about the closest finish, when Mrs. Frank Swains Just Buck and the Penn Villa Farms Lynvete, equal favorites in the wagering, came to the end so closely aligned that only the judges could separate them. Third went to W. Pohlabelns i Black Babble. Bright, sunshiny weather attended the rac-t . ing, conducted over a fast track, and before I another large and enthusiastic crowd. In the main attraction Lynvete started out as if to make a runaway of the affair. She I had things her own way for the major • part of the journey, leading right down to i the final twenty yards. It was there that Just Buck collared her and they fought it out bitterly, with the victor getting up in I the final stride to gain his nose decision. • Black Babble was another nose behind Lyn- • : vete. The start was delayed considerably by | , the actions of Whizzing D. and Regards. . When the start came, the latter reared in i the air, virtually ruining her chances, After an examination at the track hospital 1 it was found that apprentice Ralph Bonn I escaped with a severe shaking up when he fell with Galloping in the fourth race. The l lad was able to fulfill his other engagements during the afternoon. Another disqualification came about when jockey George South, who was astride Play r Lady, which finished first in the sixth race, impeded Smooth as he was passing into the s lead. The action enabled Play Lady to draw into a lead of three lengths. The inly ■ cident happened inside the final eighth and I why South committed the act caused much amazement as it appeared as if Smooth, - which had set the pace to the point of the ; happening, was thoroughly done as far as 3 the winner was concerned. Then appren- y tice Bohn gave a rather bungling ride, airs " most tossed off the place money when he 5 was easing his mount near the end.

I « Jockey South was suspended for the re- I I mainder of the meeting by the stewards for i his action. The first race resulted formfully when the ] F. L. B. Stables Sis Agnes made good for ! | $ her host of admirers, which installed her an , . c odds-on favorite. Racing close to the early pace, the victress was brought around the [ t t leaders entering the stretch, and it required 1 c but little urging on the part of jockey George South to have his mount overhaul Rolanda a and close with an advantage of one length, c while the latter had a similar margin over ] Through Omond, which downed Jessie Dear t for third money. The successful trio had c the race between them after the opening quarter. | 1 Another favorite won when Oriental Miss t scored in the second, turning back eleven others of her age which raced five-eighths, s The winner was favorite and after racing t close to the pace for a good part of the distance, was rushed to the front to win go- s ing away. While it was thought that Binoc- 1 $ ular would be the strongest of the E. R. | Bradley entry, it was up to Bold Bid to i come to the rescue when the former could j not keep up and, while Bold Bid gave a good effort and closed much ground, she was forced to submit to defeat, closing one and j one-half lengths in the wake of her successful rival. Third went to Widow Star, which set the pace to the final eighth. King Cicero brought a halt to the winning favorites when he easily accounted for the third race, for which Rettef was one of the hottest things of the meeting and went to the post at even money. Canfield had Rettef ! fc I off fast, but he was soon joined by Parade j Step and Eddy Lee. The trio went to the t quarter post heads apart. Parade Step was f the first to tire, then Sunshine Boy moved | | t into the picture. As the ones mentioned cut t out the early pace, the winner was racing s far back in eighth place until straightened |t: for the run home. Giving good response to | I d urging, he wore down the leaders one by ; I s one, but as he came to the final eighth bore ■ fc badly, causing a jam. Eddy Lee was the | chief sufferer, but appeared beaten at the f time. King Cicero went on to win going » away, with the rank outsider, Potterton, [ t getting up for the place. Eddy Lee held on , I t to be third. n An accident marred the running of the ij fourth race, when the favorite. Galloping v stumbled and fell rounding the stretch turn, c unseating her rider, R. Bohn. The boy was | removed from the track in an ambulance. a The winner in this turned up in J. L. Car- ! p ricks Miss Subway, which outlasted Peter j] in Pumpkin in a strenuous drive. Her margin s at the end was a head, while Peter Pumpkin a had a six-length margin over Nicks Chuck the finish. Miss Lizzie was the one to set the pace for the first quarter, with Miss Subway in close attendance. At the half-mile post Miss Subway assumed a slight lead, which she I held under vigorous riding to the end. Peter i ■ Pumpkin was away slowly and moved up • gradually to battle it out with the winner at I the end. „ A
