about the great Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Handicap on the opening day at Douglas Park Monday May 20 to which event that association has added 10000 horsemen are also discussing the Kentucky Oaks which bids fair to be a great event this season It is the concensus of opinion that more good fillierf are engaged in it this season than have raced in the Oaks since its early days Among the eligibles are such promising fillies as Christmas Star Floral Park Gowell Tlie Widow Moon and Setnprite to say nothing of a number o others regarded highly by their trainers All the ci cks engaged in the Kentucky Oaks this season are training well and can work fast fastG G W Langdon trainer of His Majesty lias a more wholesome fear of Ten Point for the Derby than of the popular Louisyille favorite Hawthorn Langdon saw Ten Point race In the east last fall and considers that he is a real good colt Of course his estimation of Hawthorn in comparison to Ten Point is hardly as clear as if he had seen Haw ¬ thorn at his best in Kentucky last fall He was then in the east and saw all of Ten Points good points and nothing of Hawthorn r angdon says that Ten Point is a horse of enormous bodily size Haw ¬ thorn is a taller horse than Ten Point but he has not such enormous Ixxlily size sizeThe The meeting which opens tomorrow at Lexington will have a bearing on the Derby to lie run here May 10 as such cracks as Foundation McCorkle Helios Hawthorn and Lord Marshall will all be seen under colors there Ten Point Iwing a sure starter and accorded the bucking of eastern turf ¬ men the Kentucky Derby tills season will bo one of the most remarkable betting races in its long history as well as one of the greatest threeyear old contests ever run in this country With good weather conditions and a fast track a new Derbv record is likely to be hung np this spring at the Downs DownsAt At Douglas Park everything is being put in per ¬ fect order for the opening of the spring meeting there on Monday May
