LATONIA DERBY DECISION RIGHT AT HAND Fourteen ThrecYearOlds Eligible to Start Includ ins Sir Clcgos Pinkola and Halkct The Latonia Derby will lie run next Tuesday afternoon All declarations have been made and fourteen threeyearolds are now eligible to start of which the presumption is the majority will go to the post The race is run over the full Derby route of a mile and a half and the ellgiblcs arc the following followingG G J Longs b c Sir Cleges by Falsetto Florika FlorikaG G J Longs ch c Ballms by Alvescot Illus ¬ trious triousM M Youngs b c Honest by Sorcerer Priceless PricelessM M Youngs ch c W T Overtoil by Lackford Right Wild WildW W J Youngs b c Moquctte by Ben Holladay Ruction 1 Dunnes b c Sovcrus by Scmpronins Satel ¬ lite II J Evermans b c Ordono by Orlando Nettie Dutchman DutchmanW W II Fizer Cos ch g Pinkola by Pink Coat Wyola WyolaW W Gersts br c Ilalket by Heno Lena H HM M Goldblatts b f Keep Moving by Yankee La Polka PolkaJ J Grifiiris b c Czar by Uncommon LIvadia LIvadiaKnebclkamp Knebclkamp Bradliclds blk c St Ilario by St Carlo Orsina OrsinaT T C McDowells blk g Galileo by AlIanaDalc Gaillard GaillardD D T Morris br c Crawford liy Lamplighter Later LaterIn In tho foregoing list there is no young liorse of extreme high class or of outstanding superiority over his probable competitors hut there is abundant material for a capital and wellcontested race Of the Kentucky Derby starters only one Sir Cleges is in this list and it is quite probable that lie will be the post favorite here as he was for the Louis ¬ ville event The average class of the eligibles is better than in the case of the Kentucky Derby Pinkola is a good but moody colt that stays well Halket is a good colt and his eastern running shows him to be in good form this year He has been brought west especially to run in the Derby The only thing against him is a doubt as to whether lie will stay a long route Whether it is well founded remains to lie seen At any rate he is very fast and when put to the test he may stay as well as any liorse St Ilario is useful and may have more than a remote chance Keep Moving is a good lilly that probably has been campaigned too strenu ¬ ously to I e able to show at her best and may not be started Gfilileo won twice out of his three starts as a twoyearold but has not done well so Moquette is a fast colt and so is Honest but It is at sprinting over short distances that they have shown best W T Overtoil made a good impression at Lexington but has not done so well since Or ¬ dono Czar and Crawford have yet to demonstrate their right to contest for Derby honors but their owners must think well of theif chances since they did not declare them out Altogether the Derby of this year holds out much more promise than it did in 1007 and is likely to he a contest well worth
