Yesterday over a slow track Aspiration galloped three-quarters in 1 :21 and he is to work again Wednesday. "Aspiration is a good horse and he is training satisfactorily." said Baker this morning. "You know Ive got to give him a foundation in preparation for hard work, but he is making that foundation fine and there yet is plenty of time, barring accidents, to get him ready for the big race at Churchill Downs on May 19. He has an excellent disposition and does everything that is asked of him with good will and abundance of heart. I like him better than any Derby horse I have ever had." J. J. Troxler and J. A. Gibson, whose horses are at Huntington for the West Virginia Jockey Club meeting that is to open next Thursday, stopped off here yesterday and last night, both to see their brood mares.
