CANDIDATES FOR FUTURITY Latest Training- News of Probable Starters for Great Prize. Each and Every Contestant in Roth Divisions of Great Itaco rronounccil in First-Class Condition. BALTIMORE, MQ., November 3. While most of the two-year-olds named for the two divisions of the Pimlico Futurity, to be decided at Pimlico tomorrow, have raced so recently that a good line is obtainable on their present form, nevertheless the recent work-outs of the candidates are interesting. This morning many of them were sent along in limbering up gallops and they all demonstrated plenty of speed. The serious work of preparation for the big race ended Thursday for most of them and if they were not ready for the mile test then there was no work this morning that would make them fit. Beginning with the first division of the big prize August Belmonts How Fair in a work-out "Wednesday galloped a mile in 1 :40 for George Odom and a half in 50 was all that was required of her this morning. Robert L. Gerrys Cyclops, another that will be saddled by Odom, showed a mile in 1:44 Wednesday morning and he had plenty speed in reserve all through the trial. His work this morning consisted of five-eighths in 1 :01, easily accomplished, and it was enough to show that he had all his speed. The third of the Odom string is Robert L. Gerrys William Tell. His last work for the Futurity was also on Wednesday and he went along for an easy three-quarters in 1 :17. The Quincy Stables Bluemont has raced so well recently that there is no doubt that he is ready. His last work previous to his good race was when Fitzsimmons sent him along for an easy mile in 1 :47 last Tuesday. His stable companion, Pettifogger, has not had a great deal of work and his last private showing was only three-eighths in 36, done on October 26. The Rancocas Stables Rigel has been raced into condition and his last move in private was three-quarters in 1 :15 easily at the Yonkers last Thursday. Sandy McNaughtons Little Celt is another that has been fitted in actual contest until there is no doubt of his fitness. He worked along for an easy half mile in 50 last Saturday at the Yonkers track. DUNLIN IS READY. J. S. Cosdcns Dunlin has raced so recently that public performance is the best line on his form. He showed a mile in private in 1:44 on October 25. J. S. Wards Donges, one of the western hopes, has only shown a half in 49 in his private trial, but he is another that has been raced. General Thatcher has not shown a great deal either in private or in public of late. His last work was a half in 52 last Thursday. Montfort. Jones good filly Oui Oui has been raced to her Futurity condition and she has shown little in private. Edward B. McLeans Comixa was sent along by Schorr for three-quarters in 1:17 at Laurel, October 26, and she has not shown much since that work, though this morning she went the full mile of the Futurity in 1 :47. Her stablemate Noel appears to be ready, though in private he has been trained principally for speed. Last Saturday he went a half in 52 and Wednesday he galloped three-eighths in 35. John E. Maddcns Best Love is another that has not had any really hard work, though she has been raced. A half in 49 on October 23 and a half in 48 this morning indicate that she has plenty of speed. J. B. Smiths Scarlet Bugler, that will be coupled with Best Love, is another whose races are the best line. Last Tuesday he showed a rather fast three-quarters in 1:14. That completes the list for those that are named to start in the first division of the big race. WHITNEY-GKEENTItEE HOPES. The H. P. Whitney and the Greentree Stable has four coupled in the second half of the Futurity. Of these the Greentree Stablos Moonraker and Mr. Whitneys Pic-keter have shown the best moves in private. Wednesday Mocnraker worked a mile in 1:40, while Picketer was sent along for the same distance Thursday and covered it in exactly the same time. Both performed impressively. Untidy and Rialto are the other two. of the quartet and the filly worked a half in 4.9 Thursday, while Rialto last Monday worked three-quarters in 1 :24. August Belmont is one of the owners who has a chance to win both halves of the big stake, for, while he is represented by How Fair in the first division, he has Osprey to bear his silks in the second. The most recent private move of this colt, . except for three-quarters in 1:16 this morning, was 1 :1S for the same distance at the Yonkers track October 26. Osprey is not much of a work colt and is sure torace better than his private gallops would suggest. W. R. Coes Pow Wow has not been seriously considered, but she seems to be up to the test. Her last private move was three-quarters in 1 :16 Thursday. Edward R. Bradley, with Blossom Time in the first division, has Betty Beall, Bright Tomorrow and Boys Believe Me in the second half of the big race. All of these have raced into condition and have. only been trained for speed recently. They were all out Thursday and Betty Beall worked a half in 50, Bright Tomorrow five-eighths in 1:01 and Boys Believe Me five-eighths in 1:03. The Salubria Stables My Own is a filly that has worked exceedingly well for this race and already some of the shrewd horsemen have picked her as the winner of the second division of the big contest She has shown frequent impressive moves and her latest was Wednesday when she galloped a mile in 1:40 handily. W. L. S: Martins Valador has not accomplished anything impressive, but he has been in training steadily. His last work was Monday, when he showed an easy half mile in 50, Martingale, which will carry the Cosden silks in the second division, is in excellent form and his last private work was Tuesday, when he ran an easy mile in 1 :41. Then comes Willis Sharpe Kilmers Sallys Alley, winner of the Belmont Park Futurity. This, miss is thoroughly fit and "Way land has sent her further than any of the candidates. She worked a mile and an eighth in 1:54 Wednesday. She was permitted to go along for five-eighths in 1:01 this -morning. This demontrated that she had her speed and she appears to be thoroughly tightened up to race all the way. It is also well to remember that in the running of the Manor Stakes at Laurel, in which Sallys Alley did not show her true form, she was caught in the barrier at the start and did not have a fair racing chance, j T. W. OBriens Shamrock was raced into condition during the Empire City meeting at Yonkers and as a final trial for the big race galloped an easy mile in 1 :46 Wednesday. "With Richard T. Wilsons Wilderness so crippled that he was not named to go after the big prize, AValter J. Salmons Vigil is the only hope of Thomas J. Healey. This one has been training nicely and his mile in 1 :43 Thursday was accomplished in a manner to suggest that he has a chance with the best of them. Walter M. Jeffords Miss Smith is the other named for the second division. She has been training thoroughly, though not sensationally, and this morning she was sent along for three-quarters in 1:15. Previous to that she had sliown a half in 49 last Monday, indicating that she possesses much speed. " As was said in the beginning of this talc of private trials of the candidates, most of them have raced recently enough to afford a line on their present form. The fact is that there are so many that have an excellent chance that both of the contests for the bis prize should be intensely interesting.
