yASEYILLE HOUSES ANO STAKES. To people who keep track of horses in winter quartors no place where the thoroughbreds are congregated in forco is more interesting than Nashville. At this place many of the strongest stables in the west aro located, the strong Drake stable being especially prominent. Its four American Derby candidates, Savable, Von Rouse, High Chancellor and Orly, are reported to be in rugged health and have developed into grand appearing three-year-olds. The success of the Nashville spring meeting has i been amply assured by the exceedingly good list of nominations received by the New Tennessee Breeders Association to recently closed list of stakes. The Derby with its ,000 added money will be well 1 worth winning and promises to attract a gathering : 1 : of crack three-year-olds, as can be seen from the following list of entries : Incubator High Chancellor Philo Tom Maybin Lem Reed Linguist Reservation Au Revoir Bob Franklin Frappe Oloflant Begone Rightful Orlando Savable Dolly Gray Prince of Endurance Bardolph J. Sidney Walker Harding Canyon Fore and Aft Flying Ship Postmaster Wright Witfull Spencer Reiff Jove Pirateer Outlaw Von Rouee Sinner Simon Chambleo Benvolio London Stand Pat Alflo Grace Banta Topsoil Barca Embarrassment Requisition All the other stakes offered received entries far in excess of those of the year previous and it is quite within the range of probabilities that NaBh-villo is destined to become quite a worthy rival of Memphis as a racing point, as it already is as a wintering place for noted racers. It is only required that good management shall be displayed in popularizing the sport locally, and much was done in that direction last year with beneficial results. Of some of the promising young horses other than thoso in the Drake stable a recent lotter from Nashville says: "Other American Derby horses located here are to be Been on the track each day, and sometimes as many as fifteen are on the track at once. Never before in the history of the turf has there been so many grand three-year-olds located at any one track. Then, too, the horses are above the average. Bardolph, Sinner Simon and Lem Reed are the equines that Gorman and Bauer place their dependence on for the big race. Tha former is the brightest probability. This colt waB purchased by Mr. Gorman from John Smith last fall. He is by Mirthful Bermuda Dance, a Bermuda mare of splendid individuality and choice breeding. "Bardolph worked marvelously fast during the summer, but he hardly made good in his races at Latonia. He was victorious in his only three starts, but was hard pushed by horses that could not be classed as Derby material. Trainer Bellew. who has the horses in charge, fancies Sinner Simon as much as he does Bardolph. The former colt, although defeated a number of times, always showed a burst of speed down the stretch, and it is believed that ho will go the route, which, with his known speed, places him in the ranks of promising candidates. Lem Reed is a maiden, having never started, and but little dependence can be placed in him. Although large in height, he is slim, and would not impress one as a Derby animal. All three of the horses have grown considerably, especially Sinner Simon. " Other horses well liked are J. Sidnoy Walker, Fore and Aft, Harding and Postmaster Wright. The latter is a maiden. He is in the barn of J. F. Smith and Co., and Albert Franklin, who is training the stable, thinks well of the animals chances. The colt showed considerable speed as a two-year-old, but went wrong early in the season and was turned out. defiant, in the same barn and a candidate for the big Dorbys, has wintered fairly well. She has grown but little, and from present indications she will not develop into a very good three-year-old. "Tom and Will Hayes have three that are attracting a great deal of attention. They are Orlando, Incubator and Requisition. The former, while a maiden, is considered one of the best probabilities on the grounds. The son of Ornament Lillian Lee has fully recovered from the lamo-. ness which caused his retirement last summer, and Tom Hayes thinks he is the making of a good horse. This colt has a bit of history. Hayes took him up to Highland Park last August to prepare him for the Futurity. Orlando was looked upon as the dark horse in this classic, but he went wrong and did not start."
