DOUBLE FOR MOSE GOLDBL ATT » Gilbert Elston in Brilliant Form, Winning Feature Easily. ♦ Gallops One Mile and Seventy Yards In l:42Vs, Fastest Time for Distance of the Meeting. LATONIA, Ky., June 27.— Mose Goldblatt knows his horses, and Gilbert Elston, the horse, apparently knows his horse3, too, for he made a show of six others that raced one mile and seventy yards in the Sedams- ville Purse. It was a double for the Cin- cinnatians stable, the first time this has occurred in many months. Many of the con- , genial ones friends were at the scales to I greet the veteran after the sparkling per- I formance of his representative. There is no doubt that Gilbert Elston I could have beaten any horse on the grounds | today, which is best told in the perform-, ance he gave in racing the distance in 1:42%, | the fastest of the meeting. Vitamin B., I under the colors of A. L. Ferguson, finished his engagement in second place, while third went to W. E. Smiths Left Wing. The remainder of the field of seven finished in the order named: Mountainy Man, Jawapa, High Diver and Dark Woman. It was the second winner for apprentice A. Fernandez, who had scored previously with Field Day, another of the Goldblatt horses. Racing the first quarter in :23 and j the half in :46% enabled Gilbert Elston to get the three-quarters over in 1:12, and | the mile in 1:37%. At this point Vitamin B. I offered his challenge and closed the gap between him and the flying leader to a length and a half. But when Gilbert Elston straightened out for the run home, he moved away fast and had three and one-half lengths in his favor as they flashed past the finish. Vitamin B. had an easy time taking second when three lengths separated him from Left Wing, which was under mild urging to hold Mountainy Man safe. Another ideal day was in order for the sport, which was witnessed by the largest mid-week crowd of the meeting, and their I speculations also sent the total in the mu- tuel handle up considerably. Superior horsemanship and one of the , gamest riding exhibitions witnessed at the I Milldale course this season were the high-j lights of the fifth race, which saw Col. E. R. Bradleys Browneyed Pat the winner. : The contest, one of the best of the day, brought about another one of the close fin-I ishes, and the part which apprentice Martin Fallon played in the triumph cannot be exaggerated. He just roughed his way through the narrowest of spaces, one of those which makes a boy think more than once; but the kid came through and, after indulging in a bumping match, got his mount in front. Fallon displayed all the knowledge of a veteran to land the Bradley filly at the line of finish winner by the slight margin of a head. Mah Grant and Fowler had to be content with second money, while third went Continued on fifteenth page. :: n- er ... 1 e" 1 j I 1 ; j . ! 1 j | he ie ! !J an in are r Jjj for °£ 2 R _ ™" in- n. t j j es ] for or ty I m | : top. _ j I h . ; : ;x_ the ne Qf of ten en ; DOUBLE FOR MOSE GOLDBLATT Continued from first page. to the early pacemaker, Jane Rachel. The Walnut Hills Purse engaged juveniles for a test of five and one-half furlongs. It resulted in one of the best races of the day, when the successful trio came to the end in close formation with Willard Wilsons Lancewood obtaining the decision by half length under a powerful ride by the veteran Lee Canfield. Miss Greenock, from the Park- view Stable, was second, a nose before J. Shakespeares highly-regarded Geo. Gable, which ruled an almost prohibitive choice. While the favorite was unable to meet the demands of his stronger rivals, he gave fine performance and, considering the weight concessions he was giving to his op- ponents, the race was up to standard. The sizzling early pace set by Miss Greenock was another factor which could be attributed to the favorites failure. However, the con- test culminated satisfactorily for the vic-tory was somewhat popular as the winner was well backed. Twelve horses left the paddock for the first race, but only eleven of them raced. The missing performer was none other than the unruly Miss Rebeck, which seemingly too much for apprentice Albert Morgan. The Ellis filly was going along nicely until about a sixteenth of a mile of the parade was completed when she began her tantrums. was not long before she had Morgan in the infield from the force of one of her bucks. After running away a mile, the stewards excused her from starting, and her entry will be refused for the remainder of the meeting. The winner in this was the highly regarded Harper, which went to the post pronounced favorite and paid 4 to 5. The Spencer horse never left the final result doubt after the first three-eighths and won in hand by four lengths. Second went Tiger Clark, while Lady Hazel got up in the final strides to nose out Pun for third award. Gannonic, among the choices, raced poorly. ■ [ J j I j [ J I ! a I I " | i | B a x I j I _ , I 5 j ! j i | . | j H | r e I n is a j j e j t ! ! s j j It I e ! | ! j 3 I i j y e j y j ! a a I j ! e in n | i n | I to o ; e 1_ fl
