GREAT FIELD FOR GOLDEN ROD HANDICAP 5 - - I Seventeen of Best Two-Year-Olds in the West Named to Meet in Main Attraction of Saturday at Churchill Downs LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 9. Seventeen colts and fillies, comprising the cream of the juvenile division of the West are named for the annual running of the Golden Rod Handicap, which will be decided at Churchill Downs Saturday afternoon. Included among them is J. S. Wards superior colt Wise Counsellor, which is asked to shoulder top weight of 132 pounds. He will be coupled with Worthmore, which will carry 120 pounds. It will mark Worthmorcs first appearance since his easy victory in the Breeders Futurity at Lexington. It will also be the first appearance under colors on the local track of Wise Counsellor. His racing has been confined to the Latonia track, where brilliant victories in the Cincinnati Trophy, Harold Stakes and the Queen City Handicap have earned for him the right to be called the juvenile champion of the West. The colts recent notable victory in the Queen City Handicap, in which he picked up 125 pounds and made his opponents appear cheap, is still fresh in the memories of Kentucky racegoers and they will back him into strong favoritism. The Audley Farm and the Camden-Milam condeferacy each is represented by three eligibles. The former has named Princess Doreen, Lord Martin and New Gold, while the latter has most formidable representation in Calvin, Clarence and Dudley. Pete Coynes King Gorin II., which has been showing winning form of late, will have extensive support, while the chances of Dare Say, in the stable of Frederick Johnson, will not be altogether overlooked. Last years renewal was won by D. W. Scotts Great Luck, which beat a rather ordinary band and in quality much below that which will strive for honors in this years race.
