MANY OWNERS COUNT THE DERBY THEIRS Pebbles Regret and Ed Crump in Favor Dortch a Maiden with a Chance Many Arrivals Louisville Ky May G One remarkable feature of the coming Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs is tin confidence the various stables have in their candidates chances Arunuil the stable of James Butler presided over by trainer H C Benson then is a feeling of confidence in the stables favorite Pebbles that is striking to the close ob ¬ servers of racing Tills son or lieu llrusli while he has ucver worked a sensationally fast mile and a quarter the Kentucky Derby distance bus un ¬ doubtedly met every expectation of his stable and in spite of the prestige of some of the other cer ¬ tain starters Is nearly a certainty to go to the post favorite for the race raceRegret Regret has made many friends slnco her arrival here in charge of trainer James Howe She moves around the cornso like one of the old fashioned turf queens of the days of Modesty Miss Wood ford Yo Tamblen and Los Angeles She has grown and developed since last season and can Apparently run fast and far A performer that has come Into good favor in the last few days is Kd Crump in the stable of John W Schorr This colt lias been doing well in his training for the big race and his lute trials nt Douglas Park have won fur him many friends in the last week Schorr has never won a Kentucky Derby and many be ¬ lieve that this Is the Memphis turfmans year Karly in the season Schorr did not contemplate get ¬ ting Kd Crump ready for the Kentucky Derby as he had four other entries in the stake While he may yet decide to run Goldcrest Itoy it s now i certainty that Kd Crump will be bis chief stand ¬ ard bearer mi Saturday nest nestTo To some the thoughts that the maiden Dortch has a chance In such a Held as will go to the post appears ridiculous but the fact stands out that his Derby work has been of high class The afternoon he worked the distance in 207 was far from Ideal for extremely fast time He might turn out the great surprise of the race as in all bis trials here be has shown high speed as well as a liking fur covering tho distance of ground With Ills pull in the weight he may prove to be dan ¬ gerous when it comes to the struggle in the stretch for the rich prize prizeSharpshooter Sharpshooter and Phosphor Schuylcr Parsons two candidates for the big race fresh from their recent winning performance at Lexington have quite a following and they sun will not be lacking in having good riders up with two such superior jockeys as J Loftus and J Putwell in the saddle There Is no doubt the Quincy Stable think well of Double Kagles chances as does trainer Waldeu those of Tncle Rryn and Max Hirsch believes Norse King will call for a lot of boating The friends of Koyal II maintain that lie did not run his race in his last start at Ixjxington and that he will put up a different performance In the Derby It will be recollected that in llll Donerail in his last start previous to the Derby ran an in ¬ different race but then came on and beat Ten Point in Hie big race at Churchill Downs Had his once admirers been shrewd enough to have thrown out that last race he would not have been u long shot in the Derby It may be that Royal II will repeat history on Saturday though his stock at present has dropped considerably since his last disappointing performance performanceWhile While on recent form in public at Lexington neither Kmerson Cotbran nor Little String two almost certain starters In the race Saturday would appear to have a chance it is known now that both will g the distance and their owners are Rending them to the post knowing bow frequently happenings can come of an extraordinary character in such a race and one of these now despised out ¬ siders might turn up the C II Todd of the Ken ¬ tucky Derby this year yearMost Most of the Kentucky Derby delegation and the inanv stables which have been racing at Lexington have been shi led in here in the last twelve hours and many others will arrive today and tomorrow morning at the two local tracks As many as possible are being housed at the Downs for the present but as the accommodations there do not exceed more than enough for between six or seven hundred horses not less than three hundred or more will lie quartered at Douglas Park and walk back and forth on the days they race Could either track handle the one and two horse owners with a sort of partnership division of feed rooms there would be much more room for horses at either of these courses during a race meeting For instance take twentylive horses owned by twenty live llflferent owners each calling for a separate feed room and it is easily seen that this leaves but seventylive per cent of a hundred good stalls for horses At that there is no racing point in Ken ¬ tucky or elsewhere in America where turfmen can get better stable accommodations for their horses than Louisville affords affordsOne One of the late arrivals is W II Fenchler and his brother Fred Fenchler who have come all the way from El Paso Texas to see the big race de ¬ cided Mr Fenchler is the treasurer of the Jcckey Club Juarez track and his brother has big mining interests in that country Both are ardent ad ¬ mirers of racing and never miss seeing the Ken ¬ tucky Derby run runChas Chas F Price one of the three stewards on the tracks at Churchill Downs Douglas Park anil La tonia has been appointed presiding steward at the two summer meetings to be held at Windsor Canada this season Ho has been serving this Canada track in this capacity and as associate judge for the past several seasons The date of these meetings do no conillct with his engagements with the Kentucky tracks tracksOne One of the twoyearolds owned by W C Whit ¬ ney that trainer James Rowe has at the Downs is a brother to John W Schorrs fast gelding Leochares and another in the collection is a brother to this stables Kentucky Derby candidate Regret Roth are exceedingly good looking young ¬ sters and promise to tread in the footsteps of their famous kin on the turf this season as twoyearolds and In coming years as they take m Vord has reached here that in shipping his big stable from Mexico J W Fuller had the misfortune to lose by death his two good per ¬ formers Little Will and Doll Boy and his crack threeyearold Tokay was taken sick and it may be be will not be able to race again until next winter Fuller is at a loss to name the cause of the severe attack of car fever with which these horses were stricken He was taking them to the farm from the Juarez track and anticipate ship ¬ ping them to Canada for racing the coining sum ¬ mer the last of this month Roth Little Will and Doll Itoy were good winners at Juarez last winter and bid fair to pay their way on the Canadian CanadianA A P Humphrey Jr the Louisville turfman who generally winters at his farm In Virginia is much pleased with the good condition this spring of his Kentucky Oaks winner Bronzewing and he will probably remain in this state during the meetings at Churchill Downs Douglas Park and Latonia He suggests he will make several ad ¬ ditions to his stable this season by the purchase or well bred yearlings the running clear of Carancho Jarnac IL Wood wild Huneywood Polycrates Sir Eager Screamer and Black Jester the rear being brought up by Dladiimenos Descending the hill to Tattcnbain Corner Carancho lost his place Jarnae II going on second In front of Woodwild Honeywood 1oly erates Caranuho Sir Kager Screamer and Itlack Jester Pruitland being tailed off Shortly after entering the straight Jarnac II and Woodwild were beaten whereupon Black Jester closed with Dan Russel and obtaining the lead a quarter of a mile from home the favorite easily held Dladu inenos at bay
