SMALL FIELD FOR LATONIA DERBY ONLY FIVE NAMED TO CONTEST FOR 5,000 ADDED FEATURE TO BE RUN TODAY LATONIA, Ky., June GO. Harry Payne Whitney, with the rich Kentucky Special to the credit of his stable, is going to make a strong bid for Latonia Derby honors with his three-year-olds, Olympus and Broomster. That the Whitney establishment holds a strong hand is not to be gainsaid. Thibodaux is the Whiney Stable entries most to be feared rival, and on his improved form should give a good account of himself. The field is completed by Dan Lehans Margaret Winsor, the only filly in the race and which will carry 121 pounds to the others 126, and T. C. Bradleys Yoshimi, both of which have been training in a manner to justify the belief that they will be well up with the leaders at the finish of the race. If alf of the five named start the race will have a gross value of 8,400, of which the winners net portion will be 4,850. This is exactly 0 less than the amount drawn down by Brother Batch in winning the race last year. The time record of the stake, 2:30, is held jointly by Governor Gray and John Gund, respective winners in 1911 and 1914. Should track conditions be favorable on Saturday, the Derby winner will in all probability equal or even pass this mark. With a prospect of fine weather an attendance second only to that of last Saturday is expected to turn out to view the Derby. The prospective starters are as follows: Horse Weight Jockey Owner Trainer Thibodaux 12G .....E. Pool W. Perkins W. Perkins Olympus 12G L. Penman H. P. Whitney J. Rowe, Jr. Broomster 12G L.
