J S COSDENS HOPES Dunlin Martingale Golden Rule His Kentucky Derby Entries Trainer Win Garth Confident He Will Duplicate Success of John Paul Jones With One of These WASHINGTON D C March 12 J S Cosden of Baltimore will make a bid for the winners share of the 50000 Kentucky Pcrby and its lagniappe in plate with the colts Dunlin Martingale and Golden Rule RuleDunlin Dunlin the winner of 44441 and Martina gale the winner of 25788 were the two biggest contributors to the Cosden stable earnings of last year Golden Rule a son oC Wrack and Golding for which Cosden paid Morton L Schwartz 16000 in the early au ¬ tumn was not a considerable factor in the amassing of a sum that marked the Cosden stable as a power in racing But Golden Rule probably would have been one of last years big twoyearold winners if he had been lucky luckyHe He looked like a prospective champion in May and June at Jamaica and Belmont Park He was not a racing proposition through the summer and autumn when the twoyearold racing was best because influenza attacked him There are great potentialities in this colt His mother Golding is a mare of the puissant family of Fair Play Friar Rock Rock View All Gold Flittergold and Sir Barton There is none stouter or more fash ¬ ionable ionableTIIAIXER TIIAIXER GAttTII HAItD AT WOIIK WOIIKWilliam William Garth the Virginian who took Paul Jones to Churchill Downs to beat Up ¬ set On Watch Damask Wildair and Cleo ¬ patra in the Derby of 1920 is grooming these Cosden hopes for the Derby of 1923 Cosden was the mainspring of the Ral Parr racing enterprise of 1920 under the colors of which Paul Jones raced successfully in the Derby and subsequently in the Suburban at Bel ¬ mont Park ParkThe The golden service that goes to the winner of the Derby would be more welcome to Mr Cosden than the monetary value of the race large as it will be The Baltimore oil operator wants this service for the sideboard of the dining room of the stately manor house at Canterbury a 1000000 estate of 1000 acres lying in the counties of Fauquier and Culpepper Va and cut in half by one of the upper forks of the Rappahannoclc River RiverMr Mr Cosden bought this estate early in the winter from J Temple Gwathmey a million ¬ aire cotton operator and sportsman of New York Gwathmey bred many good horses at Canterbury Cosden is going in for produc ¬ tion there on a grand scale Dunlin Mar ¬ tingale and Golden Rule will therefore bo an Old Dominion entry in Old Kentuckys greatest race notwithstanding the three of them hail from Kentuckys famous Bluo Grass belt beltLA LA G TO HIDE OXK OF THE STAUTEKS STAUTEKSChick Chick Lang a young Canadian and a rluV ing sensation last year and the year before will have a leg up on one of them All three are preparing at Canterbury where there is a splendid training course and when the elder Garth is away Wood Garth looks after them themThe The northern Virginia winter has been so far the sort for effective outdoor training Garths charges will be well advanced when they arrive at the old Pimlico course of the Maryland Jockey Club to have a finishing edge put on their condition The fittest will start in the 50000 Preakness Stakes at one mile and an eighth that will be run on May 1 a week before the Derby is decided decidedDunlin Dunlin son of Fair Play and Dona Roca a product of Major August Belmonts Nur ¬ sery Stud the birthplace of Man o War and a development of the stable of John E Madden is the Cosden Derby candidate most strongly fancied in the East Mr Cosden acquired this colt at Yonkers last July at a cost of 37500 and won back his purchase price at Saratoga August 31 when Dunlin beat Goshawk Zev Cartoonist Enchantment Wilderness and Martingale in the Hopeful with a net value of 38950 to the winner The Hopeful at threequarters was run on a slow track and Dunlin won in the re ¬ markably fast time of 1 1273 1273DUXLIX DUXLIX FUOVED QUALITY QUALITYIn In this race and in a dash of threequar ¬ ters of a mile at Baltimore in November which he won in 1 11 beating Little Celt Bluemont and Wilderness all stake winners of good class Dunlin showed the stuff of which Derby horses are made lie is a powerfully built colt not a particularly quick beginner but game and hard to beat over a long distance of ground He is of tho celebrated family of Don de Oro Beldame and War Pennant It is in his favor that he was not hurried to the post early last year and did comparatively little racing Continued on twelfth pate J S COSBENS HOPES Continued from first page Possibly Dunlin was not the best twoyear i old of 1922 although Cosden and his trainer j thought him all of that There was no out standing champion among the twoyearolds j But he is at least as good a threeyearold i prospect as can be found among tiie colts j preparing for the coming Derby and other I great races racesMartingale Martingale a son of Martinet and Lady Irma is a product of the Claiborne Stud of Arthur B Hancock as is also Golden Rule He was one of the first of last years con ¬ siderable twoyearold stake winners and one of the few that proved good enough to shoulder a heavy penalty and beat good class opponents opponentsMARTINGALES MARTINGALES GOOD RECORD RECORDMartingale Martingale which Garth bought as a year ¬ ling for 5000 defeated Bud Lerner Gos ¬ hawk Park Hill Better Luck Vigil General Thatcher Cherry Pie and Sunference at Aqueduct July 1 in the 10000 Tremont Stakes the first of the Easts twoyearold races over threequarters of a mile Then at Saratoga in early August he shouldered 130 pounds and beat Chickvale Cartoonist Bo McMillan Wilderness Shamrock and En ¬ chantment in the United States Hotel Stakes another 10000 race at threequarters of a mile milePossibly Possibly Martingale had more racing last year than a colt intended for an ambitious threeyearold campaign should have had Lut he finished the year gloriously at Pim 1co in November In the Pimlico Futurity Cun he defeated Sallys Alley winner of the Fu ¬ turity as well as one of the 40000 divisions of the Pimlico Futurity FuturityHe He had been beaten by Sallys Alley in the second division of the Maryland Futurity The Cup was decided in heavy going the sort in which Martingale had won the Tre ¬ mont and United States Hotel Stakes He had the filly beaten after going threequar ¬ ters of a mile Martingale probably was the best mud runner of all the bestclass two yearolds of last year If all of the stakes for which he raced had been decided on heavy tracks it is not at all improbable that ha would have won seventyfive per cent of them themIt It would be no bad idea for patrons of Kentucky racing and students of Derby form to keep in mind Martingales proficiency as a mud runner The going is often bad in inj j Kentucky in the spring Paul Jones won the Derby for Mr Cosden and Captain Parr on ona a muddy track Martingales sire is an Eng Engj j lish stallion that has stood for years in Oklahoma at the Williams ranch where he has sired many winners But his mother Lady Inna is of the sterling American line of Maria West the line of Exterminator Ben firush Golden Broom Bud Lerner Top o the Morning Korbly and Cock o the Walk
