SENSATIONAL GALLOPS • Mark Sundays Training Operations at Louisville Tracks. » Prince K. and Lord Granite in Fast Workouts — Over 600 Horses on Hand. ♦ LOUISVILLE. Ky.. April S.— A sudden change in the weather overnight from balmy spring breezes to a cold stiff wind, blowing a gale out of the north, lessened the usual Sunday attendance of rail birds at both Churchill Downs and Douglas Dark this morning. But it did not slow up the Derby candidates. as the most sensational workouts of the spring training season were recorded. Prince K. did something which caused the trainers, as well as the work watchers, to sit up and take notice. Trainer Louis Marshall had the Mont dOr colt ready for action when he brought him out on the Downs course this morning, with jockey T. Brotheis astride, lie went to his task like the good colt he undoubtedly is. The timers caught him the first quarter in 24. half in 48%. three-quarters in 1 :15%, seven-eighths in 1 :29 and mile in 1 :43. This is by far the fastest mile any of the Derby candidates have shown at either of the Louisville tracks S3 far. That Prince K. is one of the most improved three-year-olds shown here has been reported and his exercise gallop today bears out all predictions as to his forward condition. » No less sensational was the workout of Lord Granite. Trainer "Slim" Ownbey sent the Louchheim colt over the three-quarters of a mile route in 1 :14%. The first quarter was ••aught in 2::%. half in 47%, five-eighths in 1 : ■%. The colt pulled up sound and gave evidence that he is one of the type which can cover a long route. Bo McMillan was given a fast half, which he did in 59. The Ballot colt seems to be in great condition and is due to turn in some fast work in a few-days. nilin GALLOP WELL. Alice Blue down and Miss Muffins worked together.

Trainer Van Meter, who has recently arrived from California with the Kelley stable, says that Skeezix is well along toward racing condition and that he believes the colt will give a good account of himself in bis early races. Whi.xkaway was exercised in company with Tom Hare Jr. and while nothing fast was asked of the pair the son of Vvhiskbroom 11. showed he wanted to run fast, but he was restrained throughout the mile, which was caught in 1 :50. Firebrand and Buster, from the Jefferson Livingston stable, were also cantered a mile in about the same time. In Memoriam was sent a mile at Douglas Park.
