PREAKNESS STAKES DAY NEAR Big Field and a Doubtful Result Indicated for Marylands Chief Race The second highly valuable race of this year for threeyearolds will be run at Pimlico next Monday This is the Preakness Stakes for entire colts and fillies at a mile and1 an eighth with 40000 added Somewhat singularly this race has drawn scant notice in comparison with the far spread publicity given the Kentucky Derby Yet it is easily possible that it may exceed the latter race in value to the winner With all possible deductions including the winners stake there will be left 29000 of the added money to go to the first horse It costs 1000 to start which goes to the winner so if ten or more go to the post it can be readily seen that the Preakness and not the Kentucky Derby will be our richest nice for threeyearolds this year yearIn In the light of deductions to be made from the running of the Kentucky Derby he Preakness really seems an open affair and one that should be contested by a big field numerically Leonardo II and Ben Ilomme are on the ground but there was nothing in their Derby running to frighten competition out of the Preakness The Bradley Derby victors were not entered The best Whitney threeyearolds are all at Louisville Trainer Rowe has not indicated whether he will send any of them to start in the Preakness or not The trip there is easy so maybe he will willIf If he does not it now appears the Preakness field will come from the Xalapa Farms Leonardo II Bon Honime and Mulciber G A Cochrans Smoke Screen and St Michael W Dunians Myth ¬ ology J E Davis Quecreek Foreign Stables Tan Lec Greentree Stables Idle Dell and Touch Me Not J E Griffiths Jeg S L Jenkins Polly Ann A H Morris Fallacy E R McLeans Lough Swilley J E Nashs Bennington Quincy Stables Sunny Jim and Knobbie J K L Ross Star Voter Baby Grand Hildur and Oriole W J Salmons Careful E F Whitneys By Jiminy and R T Wilsons Kirklevington All in all to pickthe win ¬ ner secrasSi tough job
