HAS HIGH OPINION OF OLAMBALA. New York. July 11. — Trainer William H. Karrick entertains a high opinion of R. T. Wilson. Jr.s Olambala. winner of the Suburlian, Commonwealth ■•d Brighten Handicaps, recently run. In fact. Mr. Karrick is enthusiastic over the horse and his feats. Inasmuch as Mr. Karrick has handled many notable horses in his day. his opiniou is worth something. Of Qlsmhsis lie says: "Olambala is the ideal cup horse of America. He typifies all that the horsemen of this country have held dear for years — speed and endurance. In iny opinion there is ii"t another horse in training that can take- his measure from one and three-quarter miles to four miles. He is the one race horns on this continent that could repeat the lionghty deeds of inch stayers as tileiimore. Bushwhacker, Parole, Monitor. Ten Broach, Boston. Fashion anil Longfellow. If Mr. Wilson wished to snhd him after records. Olambala could, in my estimation, establish new marks for from one and three-|iiarter miles up to four miles. "Olambala sever hail hat one master over a distance of gronad, and that was the peerless Kitz Herbert." continued Karrick. It is no disgrace to 01am hnla to say he was inferior to Fitz Herbert. Neither does it lessen his greatness at the present time. I believe that Mamnnla has improved so much in the last month that even the great Fitz Herbert would have all of his work cut out to bent him over a distance of ground. "Mind. I am talking of Olambala as a cup horse — from two miles to four miles. While lie lias won several r:ie s over the mile and a smarter route. I consider this the shortest journey in which he can possibly shine. It takes him a tang, time to settle in hi* stride and he raaaot race his best over short ronton."
