I I I . i ! ! i I ! j LIVINGSTONS QUIVERO a — Shows Up Well in Thursdays Gallops at Downs. ♦ ■ Prominent Stable Plans to Move Over to Lexington for the Spring Meeting. a ■ LOUISVILLE, Ky.. April 10.— Training operations at Churchill Downs Thursday morning were over a drying out track and, i although the going was somewhat cuppy, i it provided firm footing and enabled the i horses to travel at a fairly good pace. It j ought to be in good condition for speedy j work Friday. I Jefferson Livingstons Quivero was the !only Kentucky Derby eligible to be asked jto extend himself in his work and the performance of the son of Boyal II. — Lillian Shaw was easily the best of the morning. The colt, under Frank Stevens direction, was sent out for a sharp gallop at three-quarters of a mile, which he ran in 1 :lUVs and galloped an extra quarter. His time for the mile was 1 :I8. He began at the : three-quarter post and ran the eighth in , :12%, quarter in :20, three-eighths in ■.W, half in : ! and five-eighths in 1 :#£%. After going the three-quarters in 1 : 1 1» V5 , he was eased up, but continued out the mile. Trainer Stevens, who, in the absence of Al Kirby, is superintending the training of Quivero and I the other horses of the Livingston Stable, expressed satisfaction over the work, and j ; was favorably impressed by the even paea at which the colt traveled. DANGEROUS IN THE MID. Quivero is fast rounding into form and will be lit and ready to start in the Derby. Should the track be heavy on the afternoon of the 1 race it is believed he will be a strong factor 1 in the decision of the contest. j Only light work was demanded of the other j locally trained Derby cligibles. which will be sent along for good gallops either Friday or Saturday. Wise Counsellor and Worthmore were both jogged around the course a couple of times and appeared in splendid trim. Alta- wood was galloped a slow mile, as was also Black Gold. Glide and Sanola went three- eighths in good time as an "opener" for ;m ambit ions gallop Friday. Tolo Ciround, Check and Gypsy King went out ogether for a slow gallop. William II. Shelley came over from T.ex-; ington and was a visitor at Churchill Downs Thursday morning, where he distributed the Lexington condition books among the horsemen. Shelley speaks in glowing terms of the prospects for the Lexington meeting and stilted that more horses than ever will be available for the ten days racing. All of the stables within the enclosure are taken, while every available stall within a radius of a mile of the track has been rented to horsemen unable to secure stabling room on the grounds. GOING TO LEXINGTON. Judge Shelley received assurances from the ; following owners at the local tracks that ; they would ship a part or the whole of their stables to Lexington: Audley Farm Stable, Greentree Stable. Ifoae GoMhlatt, Iete Coyne, J. O. and G. H. Kene, W. L. Drake, Haired Bros. and Jones, T. BL Mueller, Williams Brcs., Jim Fverman and J. S. Hawkins. Lon Jones has decided to give both Clide and Sanola. his pair of Kentucky Derby and Oaks candidates, a race prior to the oroTiing - f the Downs meeting and will ship them to Lexington to start them in the Aahlaad Oaks, to be run the opening day of the meeting at the Blue Crass track. A large number of two-year-olds were schooled at the barrier at the Downs Thursday morning by Mickey Harris. The number included youngst- is from the stables of Har-ned Bros. and Jones, T. 10. Mueller, J. S. Ward and the Audley Farm.
