INTERPRETER BY A LENGTH Provides Upset in Winning Best Race on Mondays Omaha Card Run Over Muddy Track. OMAHA, Neb., June 24. — Mud runners dominated a scratch riddled program at Ak-Sar-Ben here this afternoon, and the choices experienced considerable difficulty in getting down in front. H. T. Palmers Interpreter provided the upset in the best race on the program, a contest at a mile and seventy yards which occupied fifth position on the card. The five-year-old son of Pompey took the measure of Ned O. by a length, with Languorous three lengths farther back in third place. Delano, the choice, could do no better than land fourth money, and a disappointing one at that. After going a quarter Interpreter disposed of Barney Keen and undertook the task of setting the pace, while under slight restraint, and Ned O. moved into second place, just a length off the leader. This procession was maintained for the remainder of the race, and the backers of Interpreter received 7.80 for each straight certificate on the winner. Heavy rains during the early morning converted the racing strip to muddy, but de-spuite the condition of the track, good time was recorded in some of the events. A small week-day crowd was in attendance, in fact, one of the smallest of the meeting.
