DEMPSEYLOUISVILLE LOUISVILLE Ky May IS The Chandler Stables good filly Blanche Mac showed a sensational performance in her first essay for the year by winning the mile dash that fea turod todays card and running the race in 139 over a racing strip that was deep and holding Klnburn the favored one fin others in third place The finish was of the furious driving variety Blanche Mac was in the thickest of the battle at the start and fr performance was a far better one than tha othera furnished She had to race at top speed in the first threequarters to shake off the persistent Marjorie Hynes and after succeeding in this was joined by Kinburn and Bonus The trio were almost on even terms on the stretch turn and it seemed here as if Blanche Mac was done and Bonus the prob j able winner In the last eighth Blanche Mac rallied again and coming on resolutely re ¬ gained the lead but Kinburn would not bo denied and he held on tenaciously until the last twenty yards where be began swerving out a trifle toward the outside and it re ¬ sulted in the loss of the purse for him by the margin of a neck Bonus tired suddenly in the last sixteenth but was only a length from Kinburn at the finish and six lengths before Marjorie Hynes The latter did not seem overly fond of the muddy going goingIntermittent Intermittent rains at frequent intervals de ¬ tracted much from the racing this afternoon and also caused a decreased attendance The rain camo with terrific force just as the horses were dispatched for the opening race and the accompanying darkness made it impossible to discern colors from the stand while the horses were racing down the backstretch After this heavy deluge came a clearing up but lowhanging clouds poured showers down at frequent intervals The program on the whole considering the heavy track and generally unpropitious weather was a good one and brought about excellent sport but likewise several pro ¬ nounced upsets upsetsHIGH HIGH COST BIG UPSET UPSETTha Tha worst disappointment was the Florl sant Stables High Cost an outstanding fa ¬ vorite in the threequarters dash His previ ¬ ous race in which he triumphed over some of the best sprinters here entitled him to be held in the highest regard but he was a failure throughout tho race this afternoon He was kept in clcso quarters during the early running resulting in his being under restraint with scant chance to extend him seif Meanwhile Elmer K was out in front going well and holding to his task in gamo fashion High Cost just before reaching the stretch attempted to come around the others and this move cost him much ground and his remaining chance for success He finally landed in third place Royal Dick splitting him and Elmer 1C 1CExcitement Excitement was created in tho opener which was won by

sharply impeded when Big Sapp belted on the first turn Others in the race also suffered by this Rustem was one to benefit for he raced into a long lead at once anc in the last eighth appeared as if he would score a hollow vic ¬ tory but he gave way suddenly and Blue Noao and Triumph both succeeded in poking their nopea In front of him Blue Noso win ¬ ning in the last stride strideGangway Gangway
