GOSSIP AND COMMENT FROM KENTUCKY. Louisville. at»„ May It. The local racing season has shown lh.lt many of the eligibles for the Ken tacky Handicap are in good condition, aside from the three placed horses in the recent Kentucky Derby Old Rosebud, Hodge and Bronsewlng— all of which are eligible to the event with its 0,000 added at Douglas Park this spring. The Clark Handicap, to be decided at the Downs tomorrow, will unquestionablj have some bearing on the mile and a quarter roatest at Douglas Park on May 2.2. Indications point to this being one of the greatest Clark Handicap race* ever run and the Kentucky Handicap eligibles participating in it will surely be fit to go the mile and a quarter when the longer race is run. The book program for the coming meeting at Douglas Park will be distributed among the horsemen early in the coining week, it now being in press. It is a handsome edition and the overnight 1. lies are arranged to dnily draw ott the beat horses in training. Trainer Jack Keene may run that good two year old of J. N. Camdens. Luke, the winner of the Baahford Manor Stakes and Breeders Futurity, in .some overnight purse race during the Downs unit lag, as his next stake engagement is the Spring Trial at Douglas Park and that event will not lie run until the closing dav of the meeting at that coins. .. Saturday. June t! It would surely be a great attraction at the Downs, if Luke and the unbeaten tillv. Climber, could be brought together in a race. They will meet, of course, in the Spring Trial Stakes, but hor-cmen would like to see the two clash before the date of that rich stake. They will meet on equal terms in the Spring Trial Stakes, each with a penalty of six pounds, and will be called upon to ateet some good youngsters that will have a big pull in the weights, as allowances are pro video In that event for non winners of sweepstakes or of three races of any sort, and a maiden gets ten pounds allowance, if it has not been placed in anv sweepstakes race. Talbot Brothers, one of the members of which thoroughbred breeding linn is J. Hart Talbot, vice-chairman of the Kentucky State Racing Commis alon, own an exceedingly promising band of yearlings this spring. One is a chestnut fllly by Star Shoot -Wainaiiioinen. winner of the Kentucky Oaks in 1002. by The Commoner: another is a black filly by Ktlkerran — Bhtradia. by Estradia Parmer, a son of The Commoner; while another is a bay colt by Kilkerran — Talpa dam of Delaneyi. by The Commoner, and the other is by Transvaal — Cyprenne. by Kingston. The hitter ■tare may have a foal this year, but all the others were barren this season and have been bred already this year. Waina inoinen has been mated with Ballot, while Talpa and Estradia have been mated to A. Belmonts young horse Trap Both, a son of the K.psom Derby winner. Bock Sand. A good deal of interest always is taken in the vooagatota coming from the Talbot farm as some brilliant race horses have been raised there. Besides Wainaiiioinen. Miss Hawkins won in their colors the Kentuekv Oaks, and a great horse that they raced successfully for several seasons was John Bright, which triumphed over main of the stars of his dav.
