LOUISVILLE RACING POOR Low Class Horses and a Dead Track Are Factors Jockey Kennedy the Riding Star of the Day With Four Win ¬ ning1 Mounts BY J L DEMPSEY DEMPSEYLOUISVILLE LOUISVILLE Ky June 1 Todays card was typically of the offday variety six of the races having claiming clauses and bring ¬ ing out a mediocre brand of starters The only dash not having selling conditions was the fourth a threequarters dash and bring ¬ ing to the post seven fillies of the fairly pecdy order orderIt It resulted in a victory for the favorite Dorothy Buckner under B Kennedys guid ¬ ance There was never a question of her su ¬ periority after the field had reached the stretch turn for at this point she came away on call to win by five lengths from Margaret Wirisor with Georgette in third place The latter f ll back soon after the start with the result that she was far away for the first threeeighths and had to come around the others in the stretch but finished fast and Comely ComelyAnother Another victory was recorded to the ac ¬ count of Frank J Kelley the Chicago sports ¬ man whose colors have been conspicuous at this meriting On this occasion his promising racing prospect Skeezix was the factor and he showed a right good performance in lead ¬ ing for nearly the entire race and beating five other youngsters home which tried con ¬ clusions with him in the fiveeighths dash Kennedy rode him hard in the early racing to keep him in contention but he steadily forged into the lead and finally drew far away and won eased up Kent L which had been badly outrun for the first quarter came with a rush and outstayed Jupiter in the last few strides for second place placePARIS PARIS MAID PROVIDES UPSET UPSETThe The mile and quarter dash furnished an upset in the victory of Paris Maid which racing in her best form and aided by a good rile from the promising W Pool won easily from Honolulu Boy and Legal The latter was the favored one but his chances were materially lessened by the weak riding he re ¬ ceived Honolulu Boy might have given the winner a strong argument but when going best he ran into a pocket in the stretch and before he could get clear Paris Maid had the race clinched clinchedThreatening Threatening weather did not materially af ¬ fect the attendance today and another gener ¬ ous patronage enjoyed some interesting rac ¬ ing despite the ordinary offering There was a noticeable slump in the betting on account of the poor card The track ap ¬ peared dull despite the bonedry surface surfaceThe The introductory scramble furnished an upset in the success of Blaise which com ¬ ing from far back outstayed the uncertain Hereafter The finish here was a rousing one with tho first six in a huddled group Tha time of the race 114 was the slowest over a fast track run here this spring springSANDS SANDS OF PLEASURE IN FRONT FRONTJockey Jockey B Kennedy under contract to F J Kelley enjoyed a field day and furnished the outstanding incident in connection with the racing for he piloted four of the after ¬ noons winners a feat that has not been duplicated this year in Kentucky He might Lave made it five winning mounts for the afternoon but for Interference he suffered from on Honolulu Boy which probably de ¬ prived him of success He inaugurated his successes astride his contract employers colt Skeezix was beaten in the succeeding race on Honolulu Boy and then won in suc ¬ cession on Dorothy Buckner Harry B and Sands of Pleasure The latter was in with some good platers at a mile and he showed a dash of his oldtime form in coming with a great rush in the stretch after making a nlovr beginning to win in the last seventy yards from Tomahol and Brotherly Love Clintonville was the favored one here but her showing was a decidedly poor one and she ceased to be prominent after going three quarters quartersThe The closing race brought to the barrier an ¬ other band of ordinary ones with Black Thong a winner of hia last race at long odds coming in for a good deal of attention despite the presence of Bruening in the sad ¬ dle The victor turned up in Cheer Leader j on which W Pool rode like a veteran Sun God landed second place with Black Thong just managing to get up for third money moneyBefore Before departure last night for Chicago Jefferson Livingston concluded arrangements for tha transfer to bis stable of the fillies Martha
