SPRINT FOR DERBY HORSES Donges, Bo McMillan, Aspiration and Others May Contest Saturday at Lexington. LOUISVILLE. Ky.. April 26— Several of the western Derby eligibles will get their inning when the Kentucky racing season opens at Lexington Saturday. Probably as many as a half dozen will have their first racing in the opening dash, an overnight purse for three-year-olds at three-quarters of a mile. Such prominent ones as Donges, Bo McMillan, Aspiration. Chittagong, Hopeless, Park Hill and Actuary may be named to start in this race. Again, several fillies eligible to the Derby will sport silks in the Ashland Oaks, to be run the same day. These will include such good misses as Betty Beall, Blossom Time, Dust Flower, Anna M. Humphrey, Victoire, Flowers of Love, Sweetheart, Great Luck and others. Turf history is being made rapidly these days and the seeming champion of today may be dethroned tomorrow. There is. however, one colt which will not be sent to Lexington, but will continue training at Churchill Downs, which will have a following until he is beaten and that colt is Prince K. He is doing as well as a colt could and is taking his training superbly. His backers have never lost faith in his prowess and are continuing to back the son of Mont dOr until now the best odds obtainable against him in the local future books is but 25 to 1. He can be expected to give a good account of himself, is the dictum of his part owner and trainer, Louis Marshall. •—
