March 28.— Surf Rider and Violinist, two of ihe nicsl highly regarded Kentucky Derby eligibles quariered locally, were given an opportunity to display their mud-running ability this morning al Douglas Park. They demonstrated that this sort of footing does not worry them much. especially Violinist. Bar* was sent a mile, the first named covering the course in 1:5T"-,. pulled up to almost a canter, while the latter covered he distance in 1:47. These were the only Derby candidates to work today, with the exception of Rockminister. which worked a half-mile in 57:;-, in preparation for a longer gallop tomorrow. Montjoy was selected as pacemaker for Snrf Rider, but he went only halfway with him. The high-priced three-year-old drew away from his stablemate soon after the start in front of the grandstand and took a long lead on him in the first piarter of a mile. He was timed the quarter in 2H1r.. half mile in 5325 and three-quarters In 1:21%. Ai no time was he given any leeway and his rider increased his hold on him through the final quarter of a mile. Trainer Alex B. Gordon sent Evil the first half mile with Violinist. The presence of a pacemaker seemed to stir the Derby colt to greater efforts and his work was above the ordinary, considering track conditions. He covered the first quarter in 25. half in 50% and three-quarters in 1:17%. This colt is undoubtedly the best advanced in his training of tlie Derby nominees hereabouts and seems anxious to show it. Mud apparently is his forte, as he won his last time out over a heavy track as a two-year-old. and today he fairly flew in the geiag. There was a relurn to spring weather in this section today and plenty of aciiou was noted at bath Churchill Downs and Douglas Park. The two tracks were very muddy when the training period opened this morning, but under a warm sun they diied out rapidly and should be in fair condition by tomorrow. Pat Knebelkamp received a noiification from Washinglon thfat morning that jockey Albert Wilson, his coinract rider, who has been detained by the lnited States immigration officers at his home in Windsor. Int.. for sewral weeks, will be i er-110 mined to re-enter this country as soon as official pagan can be made out. which probably will be the latter pall of the week. Knebelkamp took the Caaa up from here and got quirk action on it. -BUD" FISHER INSPECTS HIS HORSES. H. ■ "Bud" Fisher, whose stable has been at Douglas Park all winter, was among todays vls- Iters. He expreaaed gratification over the splendid appearance of his horses, especially the two-year- olds, which represent a large sum of money as the reealt of his activities at the Saratoga sales last summer. George V. Barnes and Captain P.. C. Bunhiiry moiorcl to Lexington today t. look at some hoi sea which they have turned out in thai locality. Qetaea Autumn, in the ;. H. Knebelkamp BtaMe, will be retired from ractag. due to injuries which she received when she fell on a cinder road at the Fair Grounds just before the meeting there dosed. Her knees w art badly skinned and -he was otherwise bruised. She will be disposed of to some breeder. The veteran Sipteder. which enjoyed I long rest last year, is back in light training again in the I B. .1. Branuon stable. The other members of I Ills siring, including those taken up for training since his ictiirn fiim New Orleans, are: Kingfisher. Colonel Livingston. Green Grass. Red Leaf, Col- ouel Baker, Little Blossom. Golden Dreams. Last Rose. Drastic and Col. Winn. The Kansas City turfman has three yearlings, which he purchased during the winter, at Lexington. Speculative a. ii.ui in the winter books hereabouts is greater than for many years pMMt at this early date. Fee large wagers have bee* made, how- ever, and most of those of any size recorded were backing for Morvi. h. He appear* to be the most popular winter choice in years, and the local public is taking it for granted that he will contest in the Derby instead of the Preakness. . promi- nent merchant and sportsman here laid S2.S00 to - •S700 against Morvich , esterdav . on the play or pay plan.
