CHATTER1WS SIXTH F. J. Kelleys Great Colt Scores Another Impressive Victory. Charles Henry in Third Successive Triumph Backers of Favorites Fare Poorly. LATONIA, Ky., October 12. Frank J. Kelleys Chatterton figured in another winning performance this afternoon, the sixth of the Kentucky season, when he finished in front of United Verde in the Columbus Handicap, at a mile and seventy yards, featuring the card. Four started, with United Verde an overwhelming favorite. There might have been a reversal at the finish had Garner used better judgment on United Verde. It was that riders first mount since his injury some lime ago and he had the Clark representative under hard restraint for half a mile and failed to note in time Kennedy, on the winner, stealing into a lead just before reaching the lower turn. When the awakened to the fact Chatterton was benefiting by a second breathing spell and United Verdes game bid was unavailing, for Chatterton held him safe all during the last eighth. Cherry Tree finished fast and disposed readily of Surf Rider in the last quarter for third place. An absence of rain, though cold weather still ruled, was a factor in bringing to the track a fairly representative holiday throng and made for greatly improved conditions. 1 The volume of play also mounted considerably, but backers of favorites fared poorly, ; as most of the choices were bowled over steadily. There were no sensationally long-priced winners, support being general for most of the successful ones. Charles Henry scored his first victory at this track and the third successive one of the Kentucky fall season when he romped home -with the purse in the opening dash from Bullet Proof, with Pongee in third place. The latters connections were confident of success. They supported her stanchly and it was responsible for the hesitant backing that Charles Henry got. He moved into the lead with a great rush and had his pursuers well beaten before half of the journey was completed. Pongee tired badly in the j stretch and was an easy victim for Bullet Proofs rush. POMPOUS SAD FAILURE. Pompous was a sad failure in the second race, for which he ruled favorite over tho M. Jones pair, The Clown and Gay Deceiver. The latter never figured seriously in the running, but The Clown won easily after he had raced into defeat Body Guard, the early leader. Body Guard held on fairly well and finished in second place. Pompous made several efforts to reach the leaders in the first half mile, but during the stretch ho tired fast. The time of the race, 1 :21, was the slowest three-quarters that has been run here in years and gives a good idea of tho difficult going that prevailed. Hyanpom was the third consecutive favorite of the afternoon that found a Waterloo. His failure was partly due to J. Heupels action of underrating J. Corcorans ability. The youngster had the mount on the lightly weighted Hysteria and he rode her with skill, nursing her along in front and just having enough in reserve near the end to withstand the powerful challenge of Hyanpom. The latter also suffered a bit at the first turn, where he got into a jam and had to go wide. Win or Quit ran well and finished third. POOL BROTHERS RIDIXCr DUEL. The Pool brothers again staged a riding duel and again tho senior rider carried off the honors. He was astride Antonia and the younger had the mount on Pavlowa. They drew out from the others in the stretch and during the last sixteenth had the raco between them. Antonia won by a scant half length. Nulli Secundus, coming from far back, just managed to get up in time to overhaul the exhausted Ailsie Vernor. Panna was another that relinquished part of the purse right at the end when she began 1 boring out badly. 1 Another favorite went by the board when 1 Sweet Lady and Bendita, which had absorbed most of the betting attention, sustained de-i ! feat in the third two-year-old dash carded during the afternoon. The victress turned t up in Superbum, which spreadcagled her 1 field during the stretch racing and was one of the easiest winners during the present 1 meeting. Staggering but continuing gamely came Bendita a slight margin before the i fast going Dinah Dean to take second place. Sweet Lady showed brief speed, then fell i back and was cased when thoroughly beaten. 1 The final contest, a mile and an eighth race, brought the best finish of the afternoon.
