R4IN INVADES LOUISVILLE Sympathy Wins the Debutante Stakes on a Slowed Up Track Miss Jemima First in a FastRun FastRunSevenEighths SevenEighths Hold Me MeKeeps Keeps on Winning BY J L DEMPSEY DEMPSEYLOUISVILLE LOUISVILLE Ky May 17 C W Moore Jrs Sympathy a winner on the opening day accounted for the Debutante Stakes one of the oldtime fixtures here and worth to ¬ day G840 net in easy fashion from the best band of her sex that could be mustered Sweetheart landed in second place after a hard drive with Belphrizonia coupled with Liwaito as the James B Smith entry winding up in third place The favorite Avisack fin ¬ ished fourth The latters showing was a disappointing one and her failure was in the main due to her outer post position which forced her to race wide but at that it is doubtful if she could have beaten the winner under any conditions today Sympathy began well and parted company at once from the others increasing her advantage in the last eighth to win easing up Sweetheart after dwelling slightly just as she reached the turn settled in her stride and soon disposed of Avisack which had run up prominently The last eighth found Belphrizonia making a challenge but it was short lived and not seri ¬ ously menacing to the winner Sweetheart had to sustain a sharp drive to retain second place The time of the race 48 was excellent over the track Sweethearts portion of the stake money was 800 and Belphrizonia re ¬ ceived 300 Avisack by landing fourth saved her nomination and starting fee amounting to 120 120SETEXEIGHTHS SETEXEIGHTHS IX 125 125C C E Howes Miss Jemima gave a spar ¬ kling exhibition in the secondary race a seven eighths dash for a purse of 1700 in which some crack sprinters met Lady Madcap landed in second place and Martha Fallon was third There were six starters in the race and the three fillies that finally di ¬ vided the purse dominated the racing prac ¬ tically from the start Advocate on his recent good showing and in the betting was given considerable attention but after going the first quarter he retired rapidly and Con ¬ nelly did not overexert himself to keep him up until the stretch was reached where he shook him up but by this time Miss Jemima had the race won for she was can ¬ tering along five lengths in advance of Lady Madcap with a goodly margin separating the latter from Martha Fallon The 125 that the race was run in was exceptionally good time over the track trackA A heavy shower which came when most of the patrons were starting for the Downs caused a number of them to change their minds and be absent from the track During the hour or so that rain fell copiously it soaked the track thoroughly but left the go ¬ ing in fairly good condition firm footing being of service under the thin layer of mud mudThere There was a falling off in speculation to some extent as a result of doubt as to the ability of some of the starters to run in the going successfully After the rain came sev ¬ eral owners secured permission to withdraw their horses Among those which were ex ¬ cused from starting were Cherry Tree Toma hoi Coyne Scotland Yet and Bermont BermontFOUR FOUR STRAIGHT FOll HOLD ME METhe The vastlyimproved Hold Me owned by John Lowe scored her fourth successive vic ¬ tory since racing opened in Kentucky this year when she galloped home before a fairly good band of platers that tried conclusions in the mile dash third on the card She raced into the lead with a great rush but was pursued closely by Colossus and Casey She drew away from them just before reach ¬ ing the stretch and the final eighth found her with the race easily safe Dorius gained fast in the stretch and outstayed Colossus for third place Casey tired badly after going a half mile and ran a poor race probably be ¬ cause a strenuous Derby preparation has knocked him out outCarl Carl Wiedemanns colors were carried to victory for the first time here when Bess L named for the wife of trainer George Land won after a sharp drive with Kent L and Athlete Glenlivet and Al Stcbler had tha call here but both were out of any chanca from the start and never prominent prominentThe The opener furnished an rpsot in the vic ¬ tory of GroundSwell which iade a run ¬ away affair of it incidentally displaying ability to race well in the soft going Tony Sue after a hard drive outstayed the faint ¬ hearted Col Taylor which was always out ¬ run runW W C Weants Eulah F made a show of I Continued on third page BAIN INVADES LOULSVILLF Continued from first page her opponents in the sixth race and won in cantering style She was lucky in securing a good lead on the first turn as a result of Charles Henry forcing the others wide It enabled her to get through next to the inner rail She continued in the lead but Barnes would not take chances and rode her out to near the end Dartmoor came fast In the stretch and took second place in easy style Dernier Sou overhauled Charles Henry right at the end for third place placeExterminator Exterminator and Firebrand both Clark Handicap starters next Saturday worked in sensational style this morning Exterminator covered a mile and an eighth in 1 52 and Firebrand ran a mile in 1 3S 3SThere There were twentyseven throwouts from 1 the opener for tomorrow The cheaper races 3 do not lack for entries but the higher pitched 1 dashes suffer from a lack of patronage This 3 is primarily due to the considerable sickness that is prevalent Nearly all the stables have some member coughing or just round Ing to from a high temperature temperatureJockey Jockey W Pool who had a narrow escape from serious injury yesterday was found this afternoon sporting a badly discolored optic and a bandaged head headTho Tho program book for the next six days of 1 tho local meeting was
