HORSES WELL ADVANCED CONDITION OF RACERS IN TRAINING AT LOUISVILLE IS SATISFACTORY Hawthorns Derby Preparation Impresses Horsemen More Horses Leave for Lexington Other OtherTimely Timely Items from Louisville Louisville Ky April 25 The work of the horses during the last few days at Churchill Downs and Douglas Iurl in preparation for the coming meet ¬ ings at those two tracks beginning respectively on Saturday May 10 and Monfay May 20 has been unusually satisfaelory This too despite the fact that heavy rains in this section made the courses suitable for days at a time only for mudrunning horses It has also had a tendency to cause the going not to be as fast as Is ordinarily the case nt this time of year at these courses but each track is now improving daily and in a week or more they will bo as fast as horsemen could desire and safe to work and race over overUnder Under these conditions the work of the Derby fa virate C F Busehemcyers Hawthorn has been most impressive I is known union horsemen that the son of Hastings is not a good work horse All this spring trainer W S Trevey has trained him without a pacemaker Hawthorn is inclined to run a bit then loaf and this accounts for him fre ¬ quently doing the last part of his trial better than the lirst part There is not an unprejudiced horse ¬ man who has observed his training this spring who will hot concede that he works In spots as brilliantly as such Derby winners as Hindoo Leonatus and Sir Ilium did He is of a type different from any horse now in training While these judges concede that like any other horse he may he beaten in the Kentucky Derby this spring they do say that if the Busclumeyer colors go down the victor will be the equal of any horse that ever won this classic event of the Kentucky turf Each time he works he cools out as if he had only galloped around the track Nothing seems to tire him and the day after a fast workout he apiiears more robust than ever He will go to the post for the Derby weigh UK JWMMss than 1077 i ounds and t lie races lie runs at the cotiiing Ix ington meeting will just lit him for Ills start here on May 10 10Since Since Hawthorns fast threequarters a few days ago the work of the other horses at the Downs on an improved track makes his trial stand out It Is questionable if among the many good horses in training here there is one that could with ten or fifteen pounds less weight up than he carried the day Johnny Loftus rode him duplicate his perform ¬ ance There may be among the other crack colts engaged in the Kentucky Derby one that will lower the colors ot the son of Hastings but such experts among trainers as F I Weir O II Bianchi and Hundley Ilaker do not think that Hawthorn will be defeated at all by any threeyearold this spring springFroglegs Froglegs worked a good mile in 143 in preparation for his engagement in the Kentucky Handicap the event which features the opening m the spring meet ¬ ing at Douglas Iark and lias 10000 added to it by that progressive racing association The Hamilton Derby winner is training grandly and bids fair as a fouryearold to duplicate his threeyearold per ¬ formances of last season when he won ten races In twentysix starts and was only twice unplaced There are many who fancy tills son of Masetto for this mile and a quarter event as when a Ibrce yearold lie came to hand early Witli the prelimi ¬ nary racing he will have at the Downs this spring in the Clark Handicap and other races he will likely lie as lit as hands can make him when the Kentucky Handicap is run on May 2i 2iAt At Churchill Downs It J Mackenzies Buckhorn is also working well for his Kentucky Handicap en ¬ gagement He undoubtedly will be ready for the big race He won nine brilliant races last season as a threeyearold and defeated Froglegs upon several occasions However the latter was giving him weight He may not lie able to concede the son of Broomstick anything this season and the meeting of these two fouryearolds at a mile and a quarter in this Kentucky Handicap will alone insure a great contest Iolh have dazzling speed and both are regarded as able to go the route routeThe The Derby
