LATONIAS CUP EASILY WON i H..E-. Coleman Leads All the Way in Long Distance Feature. : i f Milldale Tracks Fall Meeting Comes to Close with Fine At- ; ; tendance and Good Racing. r ! : - - i LATONIA, Kj, October 8. U. E. Colman, un- : wxed son of Celt Augusta Victoria, gave further vidence of being nn outstanding survivor of a strenuous tjiree-year-old campaign, that has sent to the scrap heap many a distinguished one in his division. He accounted for the Latonia Cup over the trying two miles and a quarters distance, winning with exceeding ease over a track that more than taxed tin; stamina and endurance of the most sturdy. Following him canie another three-year-old, one of less fame and favored to the extent of :ra cigh,teen-pound concession by the winner, counting se;c Sands of Pleasure finished third, driven hard to maintain a half-length advantage" over Gipsy lad. Pit, veteran of many battles and supposedly favored by the long distance, disappointed sadly and finished far off from the others. Only five made the contest. Radios absence .being due . to the muddy going. IT. E. Cole-iinn wa"s tile favored one, his better class and demonstrated ability to run well in heavy going fully proved by his victory in the ricli Queen City Handicap "when he beat Black Servant home over a, tjitnilar-tmck, earned him the right to be installed in the post of honor. Garner; who had the mount, "never gave his 6up-lojterniueb,,,coneeni, for - lie took him into the IMjU 4fc.,ojiefc und, holding .him under hard restraint, showed the way for the entire distance. Sands op Pleasure, on his good behavior today, followed roleman closely, with Secret Greetings directly behind " them and benefiting by the two leaders serving as a windbreak for him. Gipsy Lad and Pit were .close up, the field running fairly compactly for the first mile and a half. Sands of Vleasure at this juncture began dropping away .and Secret Greetings moved forward, elating the. backers momentarily, but their joy was short-lived, as II. K. "Coleman moved away on call and increased his advantage at Garners pleasure. It marked the third Latonia Cup winner that trainer A. Baker has saddled. His former successes were achieved with Piff Jr., which has a double victory to his credit in former runnings of the Latonia Cup. This years stake netted Colemans owner ;340 net and an ornate cup. REFUSE 0,000 FOR H. E. COLEMAN. "Bud" Fisher sought in vain to purchase H. E. Coleman before the race, but his offer of 0,000 and the colts earnings in the race was declined. Disagreeable weather and a trying track" ruled for getmvay day but did not lessen the spirit of a big throng .that came to view the closing incidents and the sport for the last time this year in this locality. The patronage liere during the entire thirty days of racing has measured up to the .-tandard of former years, but business depression iUid an increase in operating expenses will result in a fiuancial decrease of nearly twenty-five per nt from last years fall meeting. The financial slump was expected by the management and they feel, fully satisfied with the results as a whole. Because of the changed track the thrce-quartrs dash, inteuded to serve as a secondary feature and having entered some of the higher grade of sprinters, had to be called off on account of general scratching. The substitute brought to the post twelve of the ordinary ones and it produced a highly exciting finish between Furbelow and Dimples, the former achieving a lucky win, for many expected to see her disqualified because of having sharply impeded Rapid Stride when that -racer was able to wrest the lead away in the last sixteenth. Rapid Stride was completely eliminated and failed to get a portiou of the-pursc. A highly exciting finish also came with the running of tlifc sixth race, in which two-year-olds met and Red Leaf was given the award. Jockey Garner was again much in the limelight and began auspiciously when he brought A. N. AEIn home after a sharp struggle to down Ruby am? Cotton Blossom. Garner followed it up with a success on Moon "Winks, which incidentally spoiled a coup when he lead Lugs, a well-intended one. homo. Garners other victory was in the stake rac6 astride of H. E. Coleman. Capital City, with X. J. Barnes up, did not form much of. an appealing combination in the mile and three-sixteenths dash, but they won in easy style, Tipi McGce ;outstaying Peggy C. for second place. . GOING SUITS GENERAL HAIG. General Haig was thoroughly at home in the muddy -truck .this afternoon and his good early speed enabled him to race into the lead promptiy itnd" he won easily from Honolulu Boy. Accelerate finished third. The suspension of jockey D. Connelly was terminated by- the -stewards this afternoon and he will be permitted to take mounts hereafter. The further entry of the horse Opportunity has been refused on Kentucky tracks, the stewards being of the opinion that lie is not in a fit condition to race. Jockey J. 1. Mooney, who was slated to 5 ride him this afternoon, refused to ride and H. King was substituted. George W. Schilling, engaged in missionary work in the intercut of the forthcoming Tijuana meeting, reports a keen interest shown by the horsemen atf the various tracks ho has visited and speaks enthusiastically of the manner in which he has ben, received thus far. The Tijuana delegation tra,s busily emjuged at the Latonia track distributing stake blanks and receiving stull reservations fTQin the horsemen who will ship to California next winjer. Many owners of the bettor class of horses accepted stake blnnks and if all those win promised to race at Tijuana keep their word the Ken,tiiokinns-will be well represented at the border track. ScUUliufc-bpoke in glowing lenns relative to the coming meeting. "Unless all signs fail we are going to open on Thanksgiving Day in a blaze of glory." said Schilling. "We expect to have 800 horses on the ground by the time starter Harry Morrissey sends the initial field away from the post, and, what is more, the Tijuana track will be graced with some of the topnotchers of the turf next winter. With a 0,000 feature bolstered with two 0,000 prizes, besides the liberal array of ,000, ,500 and ,500 stakes, It behooves the owners of the high-class horses to give Tijnana and its superb climate serious consideration. Wepride ourselves on the fact that Tijuana in presenting the 0,000 Coffroth Handicap is offering the largest sum ever hung up at any winter race meeting in America. "There is no track in the country where thoroughbreds thrive as they do at Tijuana. One only has to glance at the form book to notice that the horses that raced at the Mexican track last winter wou with clocklike regularity upon their return to the East. "Despite a hard winter campaign they came away from balmy Tijuana sturdy and ready to win. "The passport, which was a source, of annoyance to both the public and horsemen last winter, has been abolished, which means free passage over the border between California and Mexico." The Tijuana envoy leaves for California on Sunday. He will be joined at Chicago by Leon Wing, who at the present time is engaged in telling the horsemen in Canada the advantage of Coffroths track. E. R. Bradley, who has been on the lookout for a promising rider, lias purchased from James B. Riley the contract on "the apprentice rider Vincent Theleu. Jockey Mack Garner Saturday signed a contract lo ride next year for J. C. Milam. His servk-es with the Milam stable will commence May 1. During the winter months Garner will ride for C. W. Clark at the New Orleans tracks. The deal for this service was closed by George V. Barnes, trainer for Clark. Visitors from all of the adjaieut cities were on hand to witness the windup. The delegation from Louisville was headed by Colonel Andrew Vennio nnd James B. Brown. J. L. Paul is the latest owner to signify nn intention of shipping to Cuba at the end of the Churchill Downs meeting. He contemplates taking ten horses with him. U. J. Hak will ship SPa Prince aud five other horses to Oriental Park at the same time. 1
