Mr. Smith said that Sallys Alley was training nicely for both her engagements in the Preakness and the Derby, rumors to the contrary notwithstanding. C. F. GRAINGER BURIED. At 11 oclock this morning all activities at both Churchill Downs and Douglas Tark ceased for a period of three minutes out of respect for the late Charles F. Grainger. turf patron, who was laid to rest today in beautiful Cave Hill cemetery. While the course at Churchill Downs was still heavy today Bo McMillan. T. J. Pen-dergasts Derby candidate, made the work watchers sit up and take notice. Trainer Cahn had Stanley Veal in the saddle on the big P.allot colt and he galloped the first quarter in 23%, three-eighths in 26, half in 49 and five-eighths in 1 :02. The track was at least live seconds slow to the mile and Do McMillans work stamps him as about one of the best "soft" track colts at the Downs. Miatterton and Skeezix worked three-quarters together, the older horse stopping long before the Derby colt. Skeezix was timed the first quarter in 25. half in 51 and three-quarters in 1 :20V5. Trainer Kerby sent Donegal a quarter in 26 V5, half in 5o% and three-quarters in 1 :21. Prince K. was given an "opener" of a quarter in 21. Dr. C. R. Richards had Pravus step three-eighths in 3!. Wida went three-eighths in as%. W. L. Martin worked Vala-dor and Scoop together three-eighths in 40. Pete Coyne asked Actuary to go three-eighths in 40%. United Verde, stable companion of Whisk-away in the W. Clark barn, showed his fondness for the soft going when he worked a mile in 1 :18. This horse is ready for the races. He will be hard to beat in the heavy going. FIREBRAND OX EDGE. Firebrand and Buster were sent three-quarters in 1 :1S : the first half was caught in 50Vand. Firebrand was under restraint all the way. This is a first-class horse rignt now and will do to pit against the best of the handicap division here. It was "wash day" at Douglas Park and none of the Derby horses was asked to go fast. In Memcrian. Cartoonist and Hyperion were given long gallops. Fitzrue, a Derby eligible, was given a mile in 1 :56. Superintendent Tom Young received a message today from William Garth reserving six stalls for the Cosden horses. Mr. Cartn said he would have at least two to start In the Derby. These two are supposed to be Martingale and Dunlin. Schooling of two-year-olds was confined to Churchill Downs this moraine Starter William and his assistant, "Red** Gilmore, were busy with the "babies," bringing them to the barrier hi sets of twenty-five.
