April 20.— That trainer Lou Cahn has gone along in the proper way of preparing Bo McMillan for the Kentucky Derby is shown by results. If the condition of the colt and the easy manner in which he took his woik at Churchill Downs this morning is an indication of his preparedness then Mr. Cahn should be more than satisfied.

John Q. Kelly. Chiva and Climax, a three-year-old by Golden Maxim — Eva K. Trainer Pete Coyne worked Park Hill and Actuary together this morning. It was a tight fit at the end. The first quarter was caught in 24%, half 191;. three-quarters in 1:17 and mile in 1:44%. Both colts pulled up fresh and could probably have gone a couple of seconds faster. Donges worked with the four-year-old Washington. The latter is a big horse purchased by John S. Ward at the recent sale of the H. H. Hewitt estate. Donges had a hard time in shaking him off. Critics do not think so well of Donges chances as they did earlier in the spring. He has never shown anything extraordinary in his workouts, although he has a crafty traini-er. He was timed today a quarter in 24 5. half in 49%. three-quarters in 1 :1T and mile in 1 AZ*5. Donges appeared to be doing his best. He probably is an indifferent work horse.
