PREPARATION FOR WALDEN Training Gallops of Various Candidates for Last of Big Juvenile Stakes to Be Run Today. BALTIMORE, Md., November 9. Several of the two-year-olds named for the 0,000 Walden Handicap, at Pimlico tomorrow afternoon, have raced so recently that the public has an excellent idea of their present condition, but others have had most of their preparation in private, and it is interesting to discuss the chances of the different candidates. Sallys Alley, by her vctory in the second division of the Pimlico Futurity and her race on Tuesday in the mile of the Pimlico Futurity Cup, is one that needed little other training. Wayland had her on the track this morning and she was permitted to go along three-eighths in 3D, and it was enough to suggest that the above-mentioned races had done her no harm. Martingale, the J. S. Cosden colt that beat SallysAAllcy in the Pimlico Futurity Cup, was another that needed no further training, and William Garth let him gallop this morning for a good five-eighths in 1 :02 after lie had run tlui first half in 4S73. Dunlin, his stablemate, and the topweight in the handi-cap, has betn asked little since his race in Continued on eighth pase.

The Salubria Stables My Own, one that it was intimated would keep his "Walden engagement, was worked a mile Tuesday morning in 1:49. The move was a good one and this morning he was sent along for an easy three-quarters in 1:16. James Fitzsimmons has three in the field for the Quincy Stable. Caveat Emptor was worked an easy mile in 1 :45 Tuesday, and he seems to be fit and ready. Pettifoggers last private move was three-quarters in 1:15 Monday and the same this morning. Frank G. was sent along for a half mile in 47. All three of them seem to have plenty of speed. Walter J. Salmon is represented by Vigil and Luminist. The last named has raced recently enough to furnish a good line, while Vigil showed Tom Healey an excellent work Wednesday morning when he went along for the mile of the Walden distance in 1 :41. This is one of the best private trials for the race. Others that were out "Wednesday in finals for the Walden were Miss Smith, Untidy and Lady Myra. Miss Smith and Untidy were each sent along for a mile in 1:44 and each performed impressively, while Lady Myra covered the same distance in 1:45. Untidy was on the track again this morning and permitted to go along for an easy three-eighths in 38. Bright Tomorrow has been training well for the race and this morning all that was asked was a half in 4S. This was accomplished to leave no doubt of his speed. W. R. Coes Pow Wow has furnished a good line by recent racing and Wednesday five-eighths in 1:02 gave evidence of an abundance of speed. General Thatcher has had as his work since his race in the Pimlico Futurity a five-eighths in 1:03 Tuesday. He is ready.
