RUDOLFO WINS THE RICH KENTUCKY HANDICAP Louisille ICy May 20 Pefore an attendance that taxed everv available vantage oint of the spacious Douglas Park plant II II Emhioiis sturdy Itudolfo scored a signil triumph in the rich Kentucky Handicap one mile and a quarter over some of the best raters that could be mustered Following Rndolfo tlosoly at the finish only a length off came Ten Point the pride and hope of the eastern contingent wilii an ex toremo outsider Any Port in third place The winners net portion of the 14050 gross value of the race was 12150 Rndolfos victim was not marked by any llnke lie was the best in the race at the weights and Loftns gave him a perfectly ludgod ride Ten Point likewise made a grand effort but the task asked of him was too much muchTen Ten Point ossayotl the herculean job of conceding weight by the scale to all the other starters the winner being in ivceipt of nine pounds from him He made tlie pate and only succumbed in the last seventy yards He laced 5i most gallant fasliioi for the first mile and his backers were 5n high fettle at this point for ho still retained a daylight ilvantage over Kudolfo ll nearest pursuer but raduallv tile fast pace and weight became telling factors with the jromigor horse and Loft us timing his final bid with Itudolfo to a nicety in the last sixteenth gradually forged into the lead Any Ports effort was also a good one for he came with a rush to take third place from Gowoll The latter showed markoil mprovcnient over her effort in the Oaks at Churchill Ioviis and but for suffering interference at the half uille post would kave IHIMI closer up She also caused interference from which Kuckiiorii was the chief sufferer Tills was on tho liist turn where she closed in on the rail causing Ganz to take the Mackenzie rac r back to avoid going over Use forie The incident was not of sutlciont imixirtance to have caused any clianse in the result Itncklwrn after recovering failed utterly to show any groat amount of smod and was really never a serious factor In the run 1 1Foundation Foundation also made a dsllirlly disappointing showing in the race Hamilton was a prominent factor for the first threo piartcrs then retired and Ills stable companion FroglegV was always a dis ¬ tant trailer He returned to the settles with a de ¬ cided limp and it is more than likely that he will not lM a starter again for some time Ten Points share of the purse was ljp and Any Port gut SUO for finishing third JiiwoJI saved her entrance and starting feusj iggrcgliting 200 The weather was threatening with occasional showers and there is no doubt that the adverse con ¬ ditions kept many away from Kentuckys most beautiful course this afternoon The turnout how ¬ ever was a big on and filled the spacious plant The betting ring was a seething mass throughout the afternoon and the volume of speculation indulged in far in excess of what was expected being about 170000 for the day The betting arrangements were faultless and the facilities for handling this big amount and its return to successful bettors left no cause for complaint complaintIt It was generally expected that the track would be slow and surprise followed the running of the first race when 101 was hung out as the time for five furlongs This equaled the track record and opinion concerning the going changed when Old Rosebud spreadeagled his opposition in the second race to win with the utmost ease in 100 Helen Itarboc followed next with a mile performance of 19 which reduced the former track record by a second There was no further doubt as to the firmness of the going and some owners who had been doubtful about starting hi the big race of the day decided to do so The time of 205Jf for the Kentucky Handicap was a second and a fifth better than the former mark for one mile and u quarter If K J Mackenzie was disappointed over Ruck horns failure in the stake race he was partly recompensed by winning two purses with Helen KarUe and Melton Street StreetGeneral General Manager John Ilachmeister expressed great satisfaction over the success attending the opening Considering the adverse weather condi ¬ tions the opening
