LOUISVILLE TRACKSTUDDY Heavy Showers Hamper Spring Training Operations — Stables for Lexington LOUISVILLE. Ky.. April 1 1 — Heavy showers early Monday morning rendered both local | tracks very muddy, and as a result training operations were hampered to a considerable extent. A number of traineis of Derby candidates, who had intended sending their | harges for fast gallops at a mile, were forced ■ to abandon their plans and had to confine their operations to slow canteis around the track, or tightening up gallops down the back-stretch. Wise Counsellor showed to good advantage I in the mud when he worked three-eighths I easily in :tl and pulled up in splendid condition. Black Oold was sent a mile at a slow gallop, and, as has been his custom when | under restraint, the son of Black Toney i showed a disposition to run, and his rider had to exert himself to keep the black colt under control. Quivero was also allowed to | work a mile, and the Royal II. colt galloped easily in the going. At Douglass Park Mr. Mutt and Comic Artist were worked together a half mile in good time. Sanola and Olide were indulged in only light work at the Downs, and their appear -I ance would indicate that both fillies are about ready for the colors. Trainer Ron Jones is confident that both fillies will be at | their best frrm when they are sent to Lex-I ington to fill their engagements in the Ash-I land Oaks. Quite a number of the local sta-! b!es will participate in the Iexington meeting and are now arranging their plans for I shipping to the blue grass track. The ex-I cdus, however, will not begin in earnest until : next Saturday, when quite a few establishments will take their departure. Pete Coyne has signified an intention of racing live or six of his stable at Lexington, but neither King Corin II., nor Bourbon Roy will be included in the number. Trainer Coyne plans to keep these two Kentucky Derby colts at Churchill Downs where their training will be completed. In all probability they will both make their three-year-old . debut in a race three or four days prior to the running of the Derby. Jockey M. Carner, who is keeping in condi- tion by helping gallop the Coyne horses, will go to Lexington to ride. Trainer Kay Spence has also arranged to I send a portion of his stable to Lexington, and will transfer to that track next week j five or six of his two-year-olds. Jockey j Harry Stutts will go along to ride. Jockey Rert Kennedy, now under contract to the Audley Farm Stable, will hardly return from Continued on twclftb yaj:*. | LOUISVILLE TRACKS MUDDY ""ontinued from first page. Tijuttna in time to accept mounts at I »xinfr-t.n, but he will ba on hand for Uafl opcniiif; of the Downs ni-eting. On Monday trainer Spc-nce confirmed the rumor that the stables Rood colt Ixtrd Martin would net ba s-nt to the post in the Kentucky Derby, giving as the reason the inability of the colt to get ready for the big race in time. The Jeff. rs n Livingston stable, in charge of A! Kirby, will also be represented at the Lexington m.eting by a number of its horses. All of the stables horses are in prime condition and ready to race at any time. The crack two-year-old filly Kvelyn, winner of three races, and which finished in the money. in her other three starts at New Orleans, will !«• among the number to go to Lexington to fill lvr engagement in the Tobacco Stakes at that track. Arr:iiif.ements have been made by J. S. Ward to ship sixteen of his horses to Aqueduct April lJ. The remaining three. Wise ounseilor. Worthmore ami itonges, will remain at Churchill 1 towns Until April 25. when they will be sent to limlco la the same car that will transport the stable of William Martin. Wise Counsellor is g»ing east to start la the IreaktMs.s Stakes, and after that race he will be retained to Churchill Downs to fill his Kentucky Derby "t**!*— r. Worth-more, the other Kentucky Derby candidate in the Ward stable, has be.-n thrown temporarily i:t of training. He was "riven a "ball" Sunday and. in consequence, will not be asked to do any strenuous work for aoaM days. Judge Charles F. Iriee. supervisor of racing for the Kentucky Jockey Club, announced that the program and stake booka for the Churchill Downs meeting are now in the printers hands, and will be ready for dis- tributlon after Thursday. Tfie book this jreai will be much more attractive than thoue , I" fill Uatll years and w II be suitable for a sou-renir. In anticipation of the expected bij; I demand for the books. Judge Price has ordered that twice the usual number be printed. The three-year-old Kconomist. which raced last year In the colors of J. S. Ward, will be out Of trainintr for a long time, due to laving struck himself la h s stall some time a?o. The accident put the colt in very bad condition. ■ but the attending ve-erinary is hopeful of hia : ultimate recovery. The former good sprinter. Coyne, which started in the IfZt Kentucky Derby won by Black Servant, is back in training in the stable of Darned ISros. and Jones, after being on the shelf for over fifteen montlis. Coyne finished unplaced in his Derby engagement but a few days after beat Stack Servant, bts leratarhile conqueror. He fell lame shortly after that race, but was patched up and sent to Cuba to race, and in his second start again fell lame. He was again turned out at LOU Jones farm and a fen weeks ago was brought to the Downs and placed ba k hi training. He apparently is training aoundffy and If he stands up will be aaea under ceton late in the racing season. Coyne, now in bis I «ixth year, is a geldtag by Dick linnell -Alice Bah-d, and as a three-year-old was one Of the fastest racers la Kentucky.
