DERBY HORSES ALL READY Leading Candidates Show Well in Excellent Final Trials Leonardo II Works a Past Mile Mileand and Regains Favor Jockeys Jockeysfor for Twelve Sure Starters BY J L DEMPSEY DEMPSEYLOUISVILLE LOUISVILLE Ivy May 5 With the running of the fortyseventh Kentucky Derby only two days off a better idea as to the probable starters in the race is possible The present outlook is that about twelve of tlic countrys leading threeyearolds will go to the post although the number of carded starters may reach fifteen fifteenThere There is a general belief that Harry Payne Whit ¬ ney will bu represented by only Tryster and Pru ¬ dery The Xalapa Farm will also have a pair to carry its silks in Leonardo II and Uon Homme wlnle E R Bradley will send Black Servant and Behave Yourself to the barrier barrierSonic Sonic doubt was expressed about Grey Lag being among those starting for he showed a decided limp after his trial this morning but trainer Leary was inclined to believe that the lameness was only temporary and that Saturday will find the colt without any evidence of lameness lamenessLeonardo Leonardo II continues to be a puzzle He turned in a sensational mile trial yesterday afternoon over the Churchill Downs track and it regained for him much of the prestige lost in the Blue Grass Stakes running He had up light weight yesterday and it Btill leaves doubt as to his weight carrying ability tTUu WJiitncy pair continue favorites and will be at post time Tryster came out of his last work in good style but there are many good judges who hold that Prudery will lead the colt to the finish It wns trainer Rowes opinion all last year that Prudery could beat Tryster and even after Tryster beat her in a close finish at Saratoga Itown still contended with owner Whitney that she was best bestSeveral Several of the Kentucky Dorby candidates were given their final hard trials for the rich race this morning The best move was that of Grey Lag Harry Sinclairs threeyearold son of Star Shoot Miss Minnie he running one and onequarter miles in 207 The Sinclair representative showed great speed all the way covering the first eighth in 11 quarter in 23 threeeighths in 3G half mile in 48 fiveeighths in l00j threequarters in 113 seveneighths in 12675 mile in 140 and one and oneeighth miles in 153 His lame ¬ ness began to manifest itself after lie had gone the first threcqnarters but he gamely continued and he appeared to be in much pain when he pulled up upStar Star Voter Commander J K L Ross Derby hope ran the Derby route in 207 and his show ing was decidedly good He had a large stable boy on him and carried more than his Derby weight His fractional time was oneeighth in 11 quarter in 24 threeeighths in 30 half mile In 48 fiveeighths in 101 threequarters in llr seveneighths in 128 mile in 140 mile and oneeighth in 154 He seemed to run best in the last half and was fairly fresh when lie pulled up upBILLY BILLY BARTONS WORK UNIMPRESSIVE UNIMPRESSIVEBilly Billy Barton worked one and a quarter miles in 209 but his performance was not impressive At that he finished swiftly and covered the last eighth almost as fast as he dill the first one His fractional time was Eighth in 13 quarter in 25 half mile in 50 fiveeighths in 103 threequarters in 111 seveneighths in 120 mile in 143 and one and oneeighth miles in inLeonardo Leonardo II E F Sinims main reliance in the Derby gave another exhibition of his remarkable speed at Chunhill Downs y ser iiy fn ii the course dried out He covered a mile in 138 with jockey Andy Schuttinger on him and showed terrific speed throughout He ran the first quar ¬ ter in 22 threeeighths in 34 half mile in 4i fiveeighths in 58 and threequarters in 112 112Over Over at Douglas Park trainer Alex Gordon sent Mnskallonge Bud Fishers Derby eligible one and a quarter miles in 213 The track was soft and his trial was a good one under the conditions He ran the quarter in 24 half mile in 49 three quarters in 115 and mile in 144 144The The numerous improvements to Churchill Downs this year are lost sight of in the additional spacious ¬ ness of the plant and there is belief that there will be less congestion this spring than formerly and this too in spite of the increased attendance that will witness the Derby this year yearTwenty Twenty horses comprise the Harry Payne Whitney stable here in
