LOUISIANA DERBY ENTRIES Nominations Pouring in for Jefferson Parks 5,000 Fixture. Mrs. A. 31. Hoots Expects to Win This Race and Also the Kentucky Derby With Black Gold. NEW ORLEANS. La., Jan. 29. Nominations to the Louisiana Derby, to be run March 17 at Jefferson Park and to which 5,000 is added, are steadily reaching Secretary J. B. Cambpell and that official expects a splendid list for the fixture before, the closing time for entries February 2. Among the noted ones whose entry has already been made is Black Gold, which cut such a prominent figure in last years two-year-old racing. The colt is going along .steadily in training for his expected start in . the Louisiana Derby. Black Gold is owned by Mrs. R. M. Hoots of Oklahoma, who is said to have turned down several flattering offers for the black son of Black Toney Useeit, by Bonnie Joe. Mrs. Hoots is planning an ambitious campaign for Black Gold this year. The Louisiana Derby is the first objective, then the colt will be .shipped to Churchill Downs and prepared for the Kentucky Derby, entry for that famous race having already been made. This Oklahoma woman owner is steadfast in her belief that Black Gold will not only win the Louisiana Derby, but wi.i go North to greater fame and capture the Golden Jubilee Kentucky Derby. Surely nothing would be more romantic than for this Indian womans colors to fly triumphant at Churchill I Downs on that eventful day in May. I In the meantime the training of Black Gold I will go along slowly and carefully during I the month of February with the hope that I he will be in prime condition for St. Patricks Day, when he will start in the Louisiana I Derby. I Black Gold will meet opponents worthy of 1 his steel in the big spring fixture of tho Jefferson Park meeting, judging from the entries already secured. The Audley Farm Stable will have good representation in the race. Others that intend to make nomina- ! tions and have starters include such as W. Perkins, Howard Oots and Friars Inn Stable.
