HAWTHORNS WORK ATTRACTS ATTENTION Forwardness of Kentucky Derby Candidate a Feature of This Seasons Developments Louisville Ky April Horsemen In discussing the work at the local tracks of several of the caudi dates for the Kentucky Derby to be run on May 10 look upon the performances of these threeyearolds is something greatly out of the ordinary inasmuch as the hlg race is still some live weeks away Re ¬ garding it in this light Hawthorns mile and an eighth in 157 was a most creditable performance as was also the speed shown by several other candi ¬ date notably Irooklicld Baron DcKalb and Jlmmlo CHI CHIThe The workouts of the Derby candidates aliove noted as well as the trials of other horses at the local courses go to show that this season the horses in training at Churchill Downs and Douglas Park are further advanced than in many previous seasons With a continuation of anything like reasonably good spring weather the horses that have wintered in Kentucky will be titter to race early iu May this season than ever before beforeII II is a fact that some of the twoyearolds at the local tracks that have never raced lire even now ready for creditable performances under colors Moreover they have all apparently gone through tin winter in perfect health there being practically no sickness among the horses at either track trackHawthorns Hawthorns trial was particularly creditable In ¬ asmuch as he covered the last eighth of the work ¬ out nt racing speed in 12 and did it handily Already ruling a strong favorite this workout has had the effect of still further Increasing his pres ¬ tige and It can now lx set down that he Is one of the most popular favorites this great race has ever known The fact that he Is locally owned cuts little liguru iu this popularity for though his es ¬ teemed owiiur U l liuscuemeycr couuts his frieuds by the hundreds the horse himself is the admira ¬ tion inibllcWhile of the Louisville turf inibllc While the work of other Derby candidates Is keenly noted by the railbirds It takes Hawthorn to command their intense interest and his move ¬ ments are closely watched from the time lie comes on the track until he leaves the course for the barn There never has been a horse trained at either of the local tracks since the days of Proctor Knott that has been accorded the homage shown Mr Busche meyers great gelding this spring springKrooklield Krooklield among other Derby candidates at the local tracks attracts attention owing to the fact that he is to carry in the big race the colors of that popular Kentucky turfman and breeder H U Brad ¬ ley Mr Bradley like Mr lUisthemeyer is a thor ¬ ough sportsman who will pay a big price for a horse Brooklield while seemingly possessing a dazzling turn of speed has not developed like Haw ¬ thorn from his two to his threeyearold form and apparently has grown little from last year His trainer Cliff Hammon has no holies of winnirtg the Derby with Itrooklield if Hawthorn and Helios train soundly for the race Mr Bradley like all turfmen of his class desires to have a starter In the big event and Hamilton is doing the best he can to prepare the son of Yankee Gun for the race raceJockey Jockey It Goose tin local rider will have a mount in the Kentucky Derby but has not yet made arrangements to ride any particular horse This is owing to the fact that he supposed Weber Ward would enter Solar Star but the sickness of that horse influenced them not to nominate him himJohn John Huffman the trainer has arrived from Charleston He is en route to Chicago where his suit for 500 for unpaid purses won by Ella Grane at Mineral Springs last fall is to be tried triedThere There are three promising twoyearolds In the stable of Catesby Woodford that are attracting no little attention at Churchill Downs All are by the noted sire of twoyearolds Cesariou as follows Augustus Heinze chestnut colt out of Sweet Aileen by Kingston General Warren chestnut
