LOUISVILLE TRACKS LIVELY . » Warm Weather and Better Going Brings Active Training. ! ♦ No Especially Noteworthy Moves — St. Henry Attracts Attention — Jockey Wilsons Predicament. ■ ■ LOTIsVILLR. K.r.. March 23.— Regular spring weather prevailed here today unil :is :i result the Churchill Dwii and Beastee Park mee tra.ks fairly swarmed with horses for KWwl hours this morning. Tlie two tracks had dried out completely and some of the trainers sent their charges along at the fast- i est clip that they have asked of them this season to date. Judging from the large niuuher of two-year-olds seen on both tracks there will l c no scarcity of juvenile racing material in these parts. Most of them ate members of italhl which plan to re-niain on the Kentucky circuit until the windup at I.a Ionia. Most of the eligibles for the Kentucky Derby which were in action today were given only brisk exercise gallops, chiefly at short distances. St. Henry, Mont fort .Tones" Derby and 1reakness candidate, came in for a close scmtiny on the part of holseim -11 and turf ex]ierts when trainer "Chuck" Walker sent him five-eighths of a mile at a "two minute clip." The half brother of Sir Barton is hlill in the John K. Madden -table and will in all probability be campaigned by this turfman for his owner in the Fast. The Madden establishment was further augmented by four more horses which came in from his farm at lVxington, Ky.. this morning. One of them is a Ihlec-.vear-old and t.ie others are two-year-old-. 1at Ktielelkainp today sent his brother K 1 to Detroit in an effort to adjust the differences between Inited States immigration officers and jockey Albeit Wilson, which are preventing the rider returning to this country fioui Windsor. Onl.. his home city. A -oiious precedent for Canudiau boy-riding oil American tracks will be set if Wilson is not allowed to re-enter the States. The whale question hinges upon whether or not the occupation of jockey shall be classified as a profession and. in the event that it is, it will not come under the head of contract labor. Wilson has been detained for a week already. J. 0. KEENE A VISITOR. .1. O.
