AIKEN A ROYALLY BRED COLT Whitney Cast-Off to Be Specially Prepared for the Rich Cuban Derby. The Peter Pan— Easy Street colt Aiken, which won so ea-ily at Havana last Weduesda.t . was one of the hand of two-year-olds from the Whitney -table which wore sent to Cuba in the fall of 1919 with John W. Pangle. Aiken gave no eartj promise and was -old to the Cuban owned Armonia Stable in the spring of 1919. The colt fell in his stall, hurt his back, was turned out for the summer and was not raced until last Wednesday. His eased araa known and he was backed to win a tare* sum in a dozen American centers. Sure enough. Aiken is in the 5. MX Cuban Derby, to be run Mar.h SJ. The colt is to be -peeially prepared for the race and is to contend in some of the early middle di-tance races and -takes before the Derby. Trainer Carter of the Armonia Stable is a most competent man with young horses and Aiken is certain to he well prepared for the Derby. There isnt a better bred bene in any land than Aiken. His dam is Ea-y Street, by the Eug-lis-h sire John oUaiint. by Isinglass — i,a Fleche. This is stout breeding. Last Street i- loyally bred on her dams Me. She is from LeieajR, by Meddler, and was sent to England in 1914 and returned three rears later. Leteare was from Meddler YerhrMle Belle, her second dam There, by Ixngfellow. This is the stoutest of American blood. Only AOteaa soundness is in aacettea when considering his Cuban Derby chalices.
