MOUNT BEACON FAST * Shows Fine Speed in Taking La- tonias Chief Offering. ♦ Mary Jane Again Disappoints.. Sincerely and Euphrasia Leading Her Home. LATONIA. Ky.. June 29.— Eight top notch platers with a penchant for fast sprinting moved out of the selling division to provide the entertainment in the feature race here this afternoon. They were brought together under allowance conditions and furnished a rather interesting contest over the specified distance of three-cpiarters. The winner turned up in Mount Beacon, which under US pounds, including Willie Crump, ran the distance in the fast time of 1:11%. Lord Granite was second and Winter street third. The race als; brought out Moms Boy. Muldoon. Scamp, Queen Clara and Sandy Hatch, the latter drawing most support but failing badly. He began well but dropped out of the real running after the first sixteenth. Mount Beacon was on his worst behavior at the barrier, but left fast with the others and after following Lord Granites pace to the stretch passed into the lead, which he held to the end. In the final eighth Crump shook him up lightly and he put himself a safe distance in front of his rivals. HWI CROWD DKSPITE 1IKAT. Although the afternoon was one of the hottest of the meeting, another large attendance was on hand for the sport. Mary Jane. Gallaher and Combs inconsistent filly, added another dull performance to her record with the running of the South -gate Purse. This served as next best of the days events and J. I. Weavers speedy Sincerely was winner in a drive with J. N. Camdens Euphrasia, with Mary Jane third. The latter had no excuse in that she raced a bit wide coming t the stretch, for she failed to finish with anything like the speed exhibited in her previous outing. She was an even money favorite. Polly Sue only narrowly escaped falling when she stumMed at the head of the stretch and Irene Rohan, another of the six participants, fell badly lame during the contest. The sport opened with an unexpected win for Sympathy, which won out principally through the fine and vigorous ride she received under Kddie Benham. She flashed out of the pack fifty yards from the finish and won going away from Rose Mist, which had but a short advantage over Jane C to be second. Brunswick, favorite, raced prominently to the stretch, where he tired suddenly. XALAPA FARM COLORS. The Xalapa Farm Stables colors were seen in front for the first time during the meeting when Sophronia Fair outgamed Marlboro and Bob Johnston in a long, hard drive in the second race. The winner raced forwardly from the outset and after losing some ground at the last turn steadily overtook Bob Johnston, the leader, and after disposing of him held Marlboro safe. Success for the favorite. Iudy Myra, came with the running of the third race. The winner raced in the lead tnroughout, while l*nly Von closed a gap the final three-eighths to be second a narrow margin in advance of l.ady Carolyn, which saved ground the entire route, but tired near the end. W. II. Whitehouses Eric, one which had little chance because of a poor getaway Monday, came back under silks to triumph in the sixth race. Willie Fool had the three-year-old up in the stretch to vanquish Dolly Bay and Kajaba in a hard drive. Dolly Bay •was the choice and flattered her backers by showing the way until the winner caught her a sixteenth of a mile from the end. *
