AUDACIOUS AND POOL , Prove Too Much for Dr. Hickman I and E. Martin in Fast Run Race. Alice Blue Gown Outlasts Wild Life in Close Finish Training Feat of J. C. Milam. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 12. Todays racing: . offering was an appealing one and aided 1 by the good weather a generous patronage 5 was present at Churchill Downs. Excellent sport came with the running of the various ; dashes, the .feature races particularly resulting . in exciting finishes. The six furlong dash, in which the better . grade ones met, wound up in a spirited duel between Audacious and Dr. Hickman, Pools . riding on Audacious near the end being responsible . for Mrs. Viaus representative success over Dr. Hickman, which was piloted by E. Martin. Dr. Hickman displayed a fine , order of speed and led the others by a good margin, but Audacious moved up determinedly in the last eighth and in the final drive , Pool outfinished Martin. Pegasus landed in third place. Pindar Peel was given considerable attention in the race, but his showing . was a dull one and far from his best form. The three-quarters in 1:11 over the somewhat dull track marked an excellent performance from a time standpoint. OUI OUI IN POOR FORM. In the mile dash that preceded the feature, Alice Blue Gown was the victress in a close finish with "Wild Life. The pair fought it out hard during the last sixteenth, where Oui Oui had given way and the Keene-owned filly just managed to outstay the fast coming Wild Life. Oui Oui was the one favored here, but after flattering by taking the lead when straightened for the stretch run, gave way suddenly and is apparently not in her best form. The Camden-Milam-Breckinridge representatives comprising Dudley, Graeme and Wil-mer the Wizard accounted for all portions of the purse in the second race. It was the first time that one trainer had sent to the post three horses to take the entire purse in any race in Kentucky. Dudley and Graeme, both carrying Mr. Camdens colors, finished first and second respectively in the race, with Wilmer the Wizard just outstaying Franlrman for third place. Trainer Milam tried to repeat the same thing in the sixth race, also a two-year-old dash, but the best he could do here was to land in second place, Clarence accounting for that portion. The winner turned up in Princess Doreen, which, under hard riding, slipped through on the inner rail and won easily. Stage Coach finished third. PEQUOT A SURPRISE. The sudden improvement of Pequot, winner in the third race, caused the stewards to interrogate owner Watts with regard to his sudden acrobatic performance. The owner has been confined indoors by illness and has had little hand in training the horse. He responded well to Garners urging and outstayed Taylor Hay, with Romping Mary in third place. Jockey Brothers was astride Rustem in this race and caused a bad jam soon after the start, for which he was sharply reprimanded by the stewards. The opening contest proved easy for Mod- na, with Ben Bolt second and The Leopard ; in third place. Jockey L. McDermott will not be seen in ! the saddle again for the remainder of the meeting, having been suspended by the stew- ards on account of rough riding. J. J. OMalley, connected with the Audley Farm Stable, has taken his departure for . Tijuana. J William Hamilton assumed the task of dis- patching the fields Monday and will con- ; tinue to do so for the remainder of the meeting. The veteran jockey T.
