POOR RIDING MATERIAL AT PIMLIC0. Baltimore. Mil.. April BJL — Favorites and outsiders divided the honors at Pimlico this afternoon. Small | tiehls ruled and the racing was tame. This was in , a measure due to the condition of the track, which , was still deep and holding. Pleasant weather is . promised, however, for a week or two. which means ] that a good track is in sight. Besides suffering from , bad weather the hoiseineu are forced to contend | with inferior Jockeys. The jockeys riding iiere this | spring are collect ively the issirest lof that have been seen in the saddle in years. Dugan and MeCabej : stand out. , Hie conditions of the races this afternoon xvere , framed to suit the poorer class of horses. This was , made necessary liecausc the owners of the better | class of rarer* refused to enter so long as the track was deep. Tlie finishes in a majority of instances | found the winners with safe margins. Tlie steeple chase for maiden hunters furnished a series of mis- j haps. Selectiis. the receding favorite, was the only , one of the starters that finished the course without , mishap. This horse fciw-ed well aud led throughout. , All of the others either fell or lost their riders. , Miss Peiigord was the first to go down and then , Purslane unseated his rider. Merry Man. running la close iwirsuit of the leader and under stout restraint, . fell heavily at the ninth fence and Duke of Roanoke . also took a ttuuble at the tenth jump. Both were ] remounted. In a driving finish Duke of Boanoke overhauled and passed Merry Man in tlie last fifty j arils and took second money. William Walkers Kentucky Derby candidate. C. . M. Miller, was the only one that started against High Private in the closing race. This colt has . been training nicely and. while not keyed up to a gruelling race, he has shown enough to warrant his owner shipping him to Churchill Downs at the conclusion of the meeting to till his engagement in the Kentucky Derby. There arc a number of hoi semen here who profess the belief that tj, M. Miller will , Is- a hard horse to beat ill that race, provided that he ships well. Old Juggler, favorite in the fifth r»ce. succumbed after making a gallant struggle through the homestretch, and was be t tea by Cay Deceiver and Couniy Fair, the latter getting up in the final stride. L. Hughes, who had the mount on Purslane, got a nasty fall when the Seagram cast-off unhorsed him. ilughes was still unconscious when taken to the Iniversity of Maryland hospital after the race. Pierre Lorillard is re-entering racing after an absence of two years. He purcbasiil today of Robert Wahleii the promising green juui|«-r Kings Plata and will race him at hunt club meetings. Jiinmv Lane, which collided with Ben Cole after 1 he linish of yesterdays steeplechase, was injured worse than at first supposed. He had his shoulder badlv wrenched and his nose broken. On Saturday next the Clahaugh Memorial Cup will be decided. The Clahaugh is a race for two-year-olds bred in Maryland. Virginia ami Pennsylvania. The entries for this event closed last fall with thirty-three nominations. The Maryland Jockey Chili adds .ihh» and plate to the value of i0. which goes to the breeder of the winner. The distance is four and a half furlongs. Since last winter there has been much talk among owners and trainers about this race. William Garth felt so sanguine of winning last fall that he renuested Secretary Biggs to send him the purse in advance. But Mr. Garth is not so sure now that he will win. Bobert Walih-n has shown two that have demonstrated their ability to run in the mud. These arc Bapid Flight, a brown filly by Faraday — Prcstitligi-tatrice. and Sir Chilton, a bav colt hv Chilton — 1 Aunt Belle. Bapid Flight showed a lot of speed in a recent start and Sir Chilton ran such a bang-up 1 race in the mud that he must be regarded as a for-inid.ihle factor. Mr. Walih-n has some unknown quantities in his stable. This is true also of other owners. Mr. Garth has shown only one of his Clahaugh ellgibles in Andy Chisholm. a bay gelding by Norwood--Lady I Coda. His other entries are Musknielon. a highly-tried daughter of Sir Wilfred ami Cantaloupe, and Keswick, a i-olt by Fatherless — Sanci. and therefore a brother 10 the good steeplechaser. T. S. Martin, which Mr. Garth developed. Keswick is the best leaker in the Garth barn and has a high turn of speed, but his owm-r is not sure he can run in the Hind. Capt. K. B, Cassatts onlv entrv is Matchminster. hv Matchless, bred bv his owner at Chesterhrook. Matchaataater, ran recently and showed some speed. , David Dunlops eatry Is Bess Fitzhngh. by Father baa*. She will have to improve a lot to have a ehiii.-.. in the Cl-ibaugh. The colors of Carter Lee , Bowie, a son of the late Governor Bowie, may be Ml-n in this race. He has a youngster bv Potentate named LAppelh-. of which his trainer. Fred Little -held, thinks highly. Samuel Boss, the Washington liufnian. is represented by Dr. Due iin.r. a son of | Prince of Melbourne and Bossair. Dr. Diii-nner is . thought to be the best colt in the Ross stable and , wis highly tried at It-nnlng. The Virginians have been talking nlstut a likelv colt eligible for this race owned bv Woods Garth. , He is called Idle Michael anil is bv Potentate Bonnie Lizzie II. At Bcniilng Idle Michael showed , steady improvement and when tried with William | Garths horses beat thi m everv time. Mr. Garth is 1 hopeful that Idle Mh-hael will capture the Clahaugh 1 and he is pointing the coll for the race. Captain 1 Presgraves onlv representative is Bodkin, bv Path- | erless Walita. owned bv Thomas Clyde. ihNlkin . has shown nothing of conseipiem-e. but his trainer i ixoecis better things from the colt once the track 1 gets good.
