CHERRY TREE VICTOR Qualifies Handsomely for the La-tonia Championship Stakes. Defeats Surf Rider, Rockminister and Chatterton-Buster Beaten by Inches Rain Falls. . LATONIA, Ky., October 16. Cherry Tree, an eligible for the rich Latonia Championship Stakes, to be run next Saturday, qualified handsomely for that event, throngh carrying si light impost this afternoon,, by winning the feature race, at one mile and three-sixteenths. His opponents included such good three-year-old racers as Surf Rider, Rockminister, Chatterton and others. The Montfort Jones pair, Surf Rider and Rockminister, finished respectively second and third, being in close proximity to the winner at the finish. Surf Rider dominated the easly running and varied his command from one to two lengths until the stretch turn was reached, where there was a general closing up and Cherry Tree came around the others to move into the lead. He was winning easily when Rockminister began a second challenge but suddenly collapsed and it left the Goldblatt-, owned colt to go on unattended, with Surf Rider again overhauling his stablemate at the end. Chatterton, which has been cutting a wide swath in Kentucky racing, was expected to be formidable, and he was for three-quarters, but thereafter he began tiring. Deadlock ! and Startle raced prominently for a half mile, but thereafter they were laggards. Startle doesnt seem to be anywhere near her good two-year-old form and fails to sustain her speed for more than three-quarters in any race she has started in lately. Disagreeable weather conditions prevailed this afternoon. Rain began to fall just before race time and continued for the remainder of the afternoon. The track, as a result of the steady drenching it got, became changeable, but the racing did not suffer to any material extent, for most of the finishes were close and a generous patronage again viewed the sport. BAD DAT FOB FAYO KITES. Backers of favorites were hazy in their ideas, judging by the frequency with which the best backed ones were downed. Buster was beaten home by inches in the opening dash, due to the inability of the diminutive Corcoran and the more experience of E. Pool, who had the mount on Sir Thomas Kean. u first-time starter in a long time, carrying the colors of the late Alfred Voge-ler, whose estate is now campaigning the horses, including the good three-year-old Thibodaux. Corcoran was unequal to the task when it came near the end and permitted Buster to swerve all-over the track. Emil Herz Rib Grass" was installed the choice in the second, but again the speculators were off in their calculations, for Ferguson beat him home, with Mom, the early pacemaker, landing in third place. E. R. Bradleys Bradleys Toney, coupled with Brunell, the latter a first-time starter, was given preference in the third race over the other youngsters starting here, and on this occasion betting wisdom was correct, for the son of Black Toney won, but only after a hard effort to outstay Pompous, which came with a rush near the end and was going gamely. Semi-darkness enveloped the plant for the running of the two concluding races and at times the running of the starters were obscured from view. Frank .1. Kelleys Rencelaw accounted for the sixth race, in which Proceeds ruled favorite. The favorite was far back for most of the race, Wilson being unable to keep him more prominently in the hunt until some of the others began tiring fast. CHANGED GOIXG HELPS FANTOlIIE. The concluding contest, a mile and a quarter race, found extensive backing for all the starters, with considerable sharp action for Fantoche. The latter was suited by the fast reverting heavy course and won as the rider pleased, with A. N. Akin, another to show suddenly improved form over a preceding start, getting second place, with Merchant landing third. Several carloads of horses from Hawthorne reached here Monday morning.
