"BUD" FISHERS DERBY HOPE Trainer Alex Gordon Believes Cartoonist Holds Strong Hand In Mr. Mutt. LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 12. Mr. Mutt, "Bud" Fishers Derby hope, is training soundly for the golden anniversary Derby. If Alex Gordon can get him to the post as good as he was last fall, when he ran away four miles after unseating jockey Merrimee on the way to the post in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes, then Mr. Mutt will have to be given a chance for the Derby. There is no question but that Mr. Mutt is in fine fettle and has done all that trainer Gordon has asked of him during the winter. There is another three-year-old in the Fisher stable named Comic Artist, which also has been named for the Derby. This is no mean sort of a colt and looks the part of a Derby horse. Nellie Morse, the crack three-year-old filly in this stable has been nominated for the Kentucky Oaks and practically all the stakes for fillies both East and West. When it comes to good-looking two-year-olds there are ten in the Fisher stable which will compare favorably with any like number in the country. They are of the choicest breeding and will compare in bloodlines to the best. Trainer Gordon has just received the names these youngsters will bear, as follows : Running For, sr. c. by Grey For II. First At- topt II., by Symington. Kelley, ch. c, by Xcgofol Marion Gay. Wheeler, cli. c, by Peter Quince Mary Ilunter. Swope, b. c, by Fair Flay Alburn. Pcncrest, b. f, by Ambassador lV. Bold Lady.
