Favorably Handicapped for Latonia Cup Under the Weights Manager Waites and Under Fires Chances Appear Excellent Both Superb Horses and Bred to Stay .: ..... . By EXILE ... - ! !, : J. Now that the Championship has been run and won and the weights announced for the Latonia Cup an attempt to find the.hvinner by the pedigree guide of this race also may not prove uninteresting. Of course, there is additional uncertainty in regard to the Cup race, because of handicap conditions. Breeding, however, must count for much, because of the Cup being run over sq far a distance as two and one-quarter miles. Staying powers are therefore the first essential. From my point of view Manager Waite, Kingfisher and the three-year-old Under Fire are most favorably handicapped of those engaged. What of Manager Waite, now seven years old, with a season of stud service behind him? Is it possible that a summers visit to Saratoga can have restored him to that form which enabled him to beat so good a horse as Cudgel for a one and three-sixteenths miles run at Churchill Downs, 110 pounds up, Valor and Rancher in the field, and also run second, conceding ten pounds, to Moscowa. for this same Cup race two years agone? Handicapped, this time to carry but 108 pounds, or sixteen pounds below scale, the race wonld look a good thing for the son of Watercress and La Venganza if all were well. The big if, of course, condition. Sounder than ever before. Manager Waite should be improved from his last Latonia appearance, and if he is really Manager Waite once more must hold decided chance should he take it into his liead to be again interested in racing. So far the fine, handsome horsej has not shown this Yet another if for Under Fire; this if business, however, is the life of racing. If Under Fire- could be delivered at the post next Saturday in just that form which enabled him, when Conceding weight to hash up such as Ginger, Beaverkill and Freecutter and outgame the cup winner, Exterminator, for a one mile go and finish a game third to Sir Barton and Billy Kelly for the Kentucky Derby, this is the sort of timber from which Cup horses, are made. Despite the exhibition of inconvenient infirmities in the running of the Twin City Handicap, when lie drove in second to Stockwell, is convincing evidence that there still shines a ray of hope for XTnder Fire and that lie is a battler yet. IJred to stay is Under Fire; there is none more so. Swynford, his sire, won the St. Legcr from Bron-zino and the Derby winner Lemberg, and as a four-year-old was altogether the latters superior, finishing ahead of him in both the one and a half miles Princess of Wales Stakes and- Eclipse Stakes. interest. This was especially noticeable in his race last Monday at Latonia, and Major McDowell almost despairs of his favorite. Assuredly is Manager Waite bred to stay, especially so on his dams side. A member of the ever "and always successful Maid of Masham family, though tracing back to this famous mare by the rather unusual route of The Apple, by Hermit, Black Star, by Forerunner, son of The Palmer, which ran second in Kisbers Derby. Paradox was understood to be quite as good a horse as the Derby winner Melton, and it Was Fred Archers intimate acquaintance Archer rode Paradox in the Two I Thousand with the horses peculiarities that enabled the famous jockey to" flash Melton first past the post at Epsom. Colonial is by that really good Australian race horse Trenton. It is a moot question yet in the antipodes which was the better. Trenton or Carbine. La Vengaiisa, Manager Waites dam, is by as stout, hardy, thorough purposed horse as they ever had down under Abercorn, son of Chester, dam Cinnamon, by the great Australian brood mare sire Goldsbrough, sire also of the dams of Wallace and Trafalgars superior Alawa. Win or lose, now that races designed for stayers are coming into vogue yes, gradually the change is coming horses bred on such lines as Manager Waite must soon be in increasing demand for use as sires, and it would be a good thing for the bloodstock interests of this country should Manager Waite emerge triumphant from the running of this years Latonia Cup.

Fair Play, besides Friar Rock, Sysonby, Cylleue and the stout hearted Omar Khayyam. Bred to be a race horse, .his gameness and staying qualities unchallenged, his coming value as a sire understood and enhanced by a Cup victory, Under Fire would be my absolute choice were his physical condition perfect. f ismslass 3 I nomy " I John oGaunt.3 bay 1890 I Dead Lock Wenlocfe. 4 E f I "ay. 1901 s.mon u j gBlopln . 3 e w I La Flechc . 3 J.
