RICE STAKES FOfi KENTUCKY COMING SEASON WILL SEE THE RENEWAL OF TWO 0,000 ADDED RACES. Churchill Downs Management Announces Running of the Kentucky Derby, May 8., and Kentucky Handicap Will Follow at Douglas Park. Louisville. Ky., December 12. The coming season will again see two great races run in Louisville, ?acli carrying an added value of 0,000. These events are the classic Kentucky Derby, always de-elded at Churchill Downs, and the third running of the Kentucky Handicap, which will be decided at Douglas Park. TUe Kentucky Derby of 1015 will be run May S and the Kentucky Handicap on May 22. The Kentucky Derby the coming seat-on is likely to have the greatest array of entries ever nominated for this rich stake. M. J. Winn, manager of the New Lotilsvilkj Jockey Club, and Charles Grainger, president of that racing association, have had the assurance of many leading eastern turfmen that they will make nominations for the Kentucky Derby the coming season and it is reasonably certain that all the crack two-year-olds of 1014 will he nominated for the forty-first running of this great event, tirst won by Aristides i:i 1S75. Among the nominations expected to come from the east for this event, which probably will be worth 5,000, are those of Comely. Pebbles, High Noon and Last Coin, four sensational performers owned by James Butler; Regret, the chief liiouey-winning two-year-old of this year, in the stable of 11. 1. Whitney, and Trojan, .winner of tbp futurity Stakes, owned by the Qumcy Stable. The western cligibles of note will undoubtedly embrace Ed Crump, winner of seven races this season, and the star two-year-old of J. W. Schorrs big stable; Luke and Solly, the two sons of Peter Jllluce that won over 5,000 for Senator J. N. Camden In 1014: Chalmers, which won eight races ; ! during the season, including the Harold Stakes and Fort Thomas Handicap at Latonia; Sea Shell, the star two-year-old in the stable of R. J. Mackenzie, and Emerson Cochran, winner of .the Cincinnati : 1 Trophy and other good races. It is regarded as a I ;x certainty that the nominations for this stake uext ji reason will exceed those of any year, since entries ; ; nto tUs Kentucky classic have been closed when Blh he ellglbles were three-year-olds. WK Of nil the races now run in America, the Keu-tucky Derby iossesses an interest and sentimental I value second to none. It enjoys an unbroken history - for one tiling of more than four decades, and 1 its winners and contestants have made turf history i galore in the last forty years. It has been rare indeed - that an ordinary horse has succeeded in winning the Kentucky Derby, and some of the greatest t performers the American turf has knowu have a carried the silks of their owners to the front in a this event. The great array of three-year-olds which will 1 contest the Kentucky Derby the coining season will I lihve additional opportunities to win fame and a ii fortune for their owners in the later big Kentucky races, the 5,000 Kentucky Handicap and the e VIO.OOO Latonia Derby. Manager John Hachiueister. . manager of the Douglas Park and Latonia Jockey y Iltlfos, made a happy stroke in establishing the e Kentucky Handicap as the big feature race for the e spring meeting at Douglas Iark, as it lias generally v drilwn the cream of the Derby contestants to the e post, in addition to the older stars. The Latonia Derby is run after Iwth of the e eitrllur liig races and is sure to have a bigger array of entries when it closes next March, as it t Is he first of the imiwrtant three-year-old events - i in which penalties and allowances play a part.
