- * i s - - - y e li - f a s ►- i- -t » d i- :- II ;s f, : ] I [ t • J — . i KENTUCKY SPECIAL GOSSI? ] — i LATONIA Ky.. June 16.— When Morvich 1 , won the Kentucky Derby and Pillory won the Preakness there seemed small chance I j for these colts to meet short of Saratoga, I because Morvich was not in the Belmont. . General manager Winn of the Kentucky Jockey Club, however, made it possible for , these and other three-year-olds to determine ; , the championship by giving the Kentucky Special, to be run at Latonia on June 24, , for stake of C at one and one-quarter miles, a 0,000 and a solid gold cup. Sr.cb II. ap-, - pcared the most likely candidate to dethrone . Morvich, especially after he the unbeaten but Pillory trimmed had won the Withers, Snob II. in the Belmont and farther com-,- plicated the issue. Along comes Whiskaway, one of Harry Payne Whitneys entries in the Special, and in his first start at Bel- mont Park on Wednesday ran a mile in 1:37%. Each day adds to the interest and importance of the Kentucky Special. The above a, outstanding quartet are sure starters and all of them will leave New York for La- _ tonia not later than Monday. Mr. Whitney has Olympus and Broomster from which to ° chOOM a companion for Whiskaway. Star r Jester, Modo. Serenader and the other east-e ein entries will give that section a formida-a ble array. The West, however, has hopes that Deadlock, " a greatly improved horse over his Ken- tucky Derby form, will be a factor in the e big race. His trial at Latonia on Wednes- ;" day, one and a quarter miles in 2 :08 eased d up the last quarter, was excellent work. • Owner Shannon believes that if Morvich can II he beaten Deadlock will turn the trick. Star- " tie, the Kentucky Oaks winner; Bet Mosie, 3 which ran second in the Kentucky Derby, and u John Finn, tho third horse, will further •r strengthen western chances for keeping the e 0,000 stake and the gold cup at home.
