MORE DERBY QUOTATIONS Some Radical Changes Since First Prices Were Announced Favorites Not Affected.

These do not apply to the favorites, but are in the way of extending and liberalizing the prices of the others. Among these "others" are some highly thought of in their respective stables, and it is quite within the range of probabilities that such as Stanwix, Whiskalong, Senator Norris, Sun Flag, Laurano, Tolo Ground, Tester, Time Exposure, Chilhowee, Peter King, Happy Thonghts and Swing-along, for instance, will come to lower prices presently.
