KENTUCKY ER3JY EXIGIBLES The Kentucky Derby of this year had originally 113 entries The final declaration date was March 1 and of those then eligible only nineteen were left in The racing at Little Rock Memphis and Nash ¬ ville will no doubt have a decided influence in the way of determing how many of this band of nine ¬ teen will go to the post for the race that annually evokes profound enthusiasm in the state of fast horses and pretty women Those left in are G C Bennetts ch c Abe Frank by Hanover Cheese Straw StrawT T C McDowells ch c AllanaDale by Halma Sudie McNairy McNairyJ J E Maddens br c Slipthrift by Spendthrift Yarina YarinaJ J W Schorrs br c Charles W Meyer by Esher Ultimatum UltimatumT T C McDowells b c The Rival by Halma Bracegirdle BracegirdleG G C Bennetts ch c Blennenworth by Prince of Monaco Middlemarch MiddlemarchE E R Bradleys b c Red Hook by Forester Lilly BI W H Laudemanns blk c Harry New by Pirate cf PenzanfT Barcelona f G C Bennetts ch c Herodiade by Hanover Druidess DruidessJ J S OBriens b c Hans Wagner by Longstreet Tommie Bell T W Moores ch c Inventor by Ingoldsby Caroline Hamilton HamiltonJ J W Schorrs ch c H L Coleman by Farandole OrchidJ Orchid J Welch Cos b c Rossfame by Rossington Famine FamineMiddleton Middleton Jungbluths ch c Rip bx Rossing ton Dosta DostaGDWilsons GDWilsons br c Dnnsbro by Darebin Ger ¬ trude trudeH H Wallaces ch c Burnett Wallace by Ingoldaby Agnes Morancy MorancyW W S Barnes b g Trialmoro by Jim Gore Fly ¬ ing Rumor RumorG G C Bennetts b c Uncle George by Siddartha Loetitia LoetitiaJ J J Badels b c George R by Pirate of Pen zance Lady W liard liardOn On the basis of last years racing the Derby now appears a duel between Abe Frank and Allana Dale But the variations between twoyearold and threeyearold form are often striking and bring about unexpected results annually Many outside of the two cracks mentioned are highly thought of by their owners and a good field will no doubt go to the post It is worth noting that shrewd and fortunate John E Madden has declared his good colt Pentecost out leaving Slipthrift in an action that amounts to public notice that he con ¬ siders the son of Spendthrift up to the Derby stan ¬ dard From now on the work of the candidates will be eagerly scanned and interest in the issue will grow until the fateful day of decision arrives
