FINISH IN A DEAD HEAT Regalo and Tippo Sahib Give La-tonia Patrons a Sensation. Jane Pennybaker Runs Away from the Veterans King Gorin and Ormesdale. i L.VTOXIA, Ky., October 13. The mile and an eighth dash for a purse of ,800, while held to be the secondary feature of todays card, furnished the stellar incident of the afternoons racing, for it developed the first dead heat of the Kentucky racing season. The pair to divide winning lienors were Tippo .Sahib and Regalo. The last named was extremely lucky to get a split of the purse, for Tippo Sahib was clearly best in the going, but airfield was not equal in riding skill to Robinson on JJegalo. The pair, aside from winding up on such even terms that the judges could not separate them, had staged an interesting duel from the start, at one point the pair running like a team. King Gorin and Ormesdale, both veterans, and having made a season in the stud, opposed the three-year-old Jane Pennybaker in the mile dash that fetured the card, and though King Gorin was held in high esteem by his connections and the public, the filly never left the result in doubt, for she sprinted into the lead with a rush, and favored by her light impost held her sturdy opponents safe for the entire race and won easing up. Continued bleak weather and a heavy track detracted much from the sport, but a surprisingly large attendance was on hand. Because of the difficnlt track many of the dashes had small fields of starters. The public seemingly were much at a loss in their selections, for those best backed were beaten with a frequency that meant depleted baiik rolls. Trusty begun the npyetsfTvlreir--Ik? took the initial race after a mild drive to outstay first Pullet. .Tas. T. Clark, after an absence of tome time from racing, was the favorite in this, but he ran ii dull race and was far back throughout. Prince. Pal, n long overdue good colt, emerged from the maiden ranks by landing the second race after he allowed Accelerate to lead him to the stretch. Golden Dawn proved best of an ordinary band that started in the third race and won in runaway style. Galli-Curci furnished au upset in the fourth race by winning easily, and Bourbon Lad had no difficulty in taking the final race. Henry McDaniel telegraphed today to learn the weight assignment on W. S. Kilmers Exterminator in the Latonia Cup. It is expected that he will be shipped here to till the engagement. On Watch, owned by G. W. Loft, will arrive to start in the Queen City llandieap, to be run Wednesday. There was no aftermath to the Latonia Championship Stakes. The general opinion prevailed that Mad Hatter was by far the best horse and by right entitled to the major portion of the money involved. Trainer Leary shipped him back to Laurel Sunday and departed with jockey Fator for the same point. There was regret that more horses of good class, as the value, of the race deserved, were not starters. Van Dusen and Pool came in for censure for the poor rides they put up respectively on Swaj and Stockwell. But even with perfect rides neither horse would have been able to head the winner. Stockwell came out of the race a bit sore, but it is not thought to be sprious. There was a big visiting delegation this afternoon from Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. T. .T. Pendergast was among the comers from the latter point, and J. A. Murphy from the Mound City. Tin? horses of O. 10. Clement, including the debarred JIauberl:, were shipped back to Laurel yesterday and will be raced on the Maryland tracks. General llaig came out of his race Saturday showing soreness and was excused from starting on this ..ecoiint this afternoon.
