MAD FRUMP IMPRESSIVELY Works Mile and a Half in Preparation for Latonia Championship. Gusto, Leading Money Winner of the Year, Given Light Work Before His JFinal Trial Scheduled for Today. 1 LATONIA, Ky., Nov. 2. A very impressive gallop by C. V. Whitneys Mad Frump, son of Mad Hatter and Frumpery, at one mile and one-half featured todays activity among the candidates for Saturdays fourteenth running of the 0,000 Latonia Championship Stakes, for three-year-olds. Mad Frump was on the heavy, holding track shortly before the first race and was never extended as he covered the long route in 2:49. He worked from the half-mile post and followed a course near the center of the uncertain track throughout the trial, his final one for his important objective, which will test him and his rivals at one mile and three-quarters. Steadied along under stout and smooth restraint, Mad Frump negotiated the quarter in :26, half mile in :53, three-quarters in 1:22 and was back to the starting point in 1:51. He was caught in 2:05 for the mile and one-eighth, went a mile and one-quarter in 2:20 and mile and three-eighths in 2:35. He had up close to 130 pounds and came out of the gallop in fine fashion. Gusto, M. L. Schwartz Classic Stakes and American Derby winner and leading money winner of the year, had light preparation for his final distance gallop scheduled for tomorrow, when he breezed a slow three-quarters through such a heavy fog this morning that no time was taken. If the Schwartz hope can win Saturdays race, the richest of American fall fixtures for other than two-year-olds, he will be crowned champion of the division. He appears in good condition and should command a tremendous following. J. Fred Adams, owner of Rehoboth, which unloaded here yesterday from Maryland, was an arrival. He immediately engaged Bob Finnerty to ride that son of Sun Briar and Lazuali in Saturdays stake. Norman W. Churchs Gallant Sir, H. P. Headleys Big Beau, C. T. Fishers Cee Tee had an easy day of it, but will be under saddle tomorrow. No word was received from the W. R. Coe and W. S. Kilmer stables, and it is doubtful if their colors will be carried in the race for which Coe named Osculator, and the chief Kilmer eligible is Sunmelus.
