classed John W Schorrs Kentucky Derby candidate Loocharos with such cracks as Haw ¬ thorn Helios and Ten Point there is no denying that Foundation or anv other Derby eligible Is train ¬ ing better than is the son of Broomstick for the big race This gelding soems to have a dazzling dash of speed this spring in his work and having gone a mile as a twoyearold there is every indica ¬ tion that he will stay the Derby route Trainer John F Schorr has all along said Leochares is a sure starter in the Derby should the track be muddy on the afternoon the race is run Saturday May 10 but there are any number of turfmen who believe that the geldings owner will surely send him to the post for the Derby under any sort of weather conditions On his twoyearold form Leochares figures as having a chance In almost any kind of company The son of Broomstick started twenty three timos last season and won no less than eleven races and was placed in nine of his other starts Then again ho is fancied by some on account of his sire Broomstick which already has a Kentucky Derby winner to his credit in Meridian victor in the big race of 1911 The last time J AAr Schorr figured in the Kentucky Derby was in 1S9S when Libber Karl running in his colors was defeated by the great Plaudit The Memphis turfman thought at first that Leibor Karl would have beaten Plaudit in that race had Tommy Burns who rode him dis ¬ played bettor judgment in the early part of the race This notion however was dispelled when the pair met again in the Clark Stakes and though Plaudit was then conceding Lteber Karl live pounds he woli that event more easily than he did the Ken ¬ tucky Derby DerbyThe The Churchill Downs and Douglas Park tracks were In excellent condition today The most of tho fast trials took place at Churchill
