CUPPY TRACK DETERS 4 Trainers at Louisville Taking No Chances With Their Horses. ♦ Invers Careful Preparation — In Memoriam in Mile Canter — Youneed On Bad Behavior. ♦ LOUISVILLE. Ky . April 16— There was a lull in training operations at Churchill Downs this morning, due mainly to the fact that it was not the regular work day for most of the Kentucky Derby aspirants. The cuppy track also served to deter trainers from sending their charges along at good speed. Inver. the colt that Will Martin is training for Archibald Barklie of Philadelphia, was the only Derby colt to be sent the mile route. With jockey Brothers in the saddle the son of Tromp la Mort and Miss Inver covered the distance easily in 1:54. This colt is possessed of abundant early •speed, but it is a question whether he can go a long route. He is receiving a careful course of training and is not being hurried in his preparation. Altawood was out with his usual two pacemakers for a spin at three-eighths, which he concluded in :40. The work was in preparation for the colts next workout at a mile Thursday morning. Both King Gorki II. and Bourbon Boy were out for slow gallops. Both colts are showing steady improvement under the careful training of Pete Coyne. Sa-nola and Hide were also on the track for light work and will both be sent along for faster work Thursday. Wise Counsellor was not seen on the track during the forenoon. The previous afternoon he had been sent a mile in 1 :49% over a slow-track. The colt was given a physic after his exercise and in consequence will not be asked to do any strenuous work for at least two days. COYNE TWO-YEAR-OLDS. Pete Coyne had his big band of two-year-olds out for gallops and fhe youngsters acquitted themselves with credit. They are pronounced the best looking band of two- ear-olds quartered at the Downs in some time, and among the number are several that are expected to become topnotchers. Bob Gilmore had In Memoriam out for a canter at a mile and the handsome horse appeared to fine advantage as he covered the seven-eiphths in 1 :3j%. and pulled up the mile in 1 : -. C.reat Jazz and Double Cross went out together and worked three-quarters in 1:19%. Sir harles and Gamester, two highly prized youngsters in the stable of Bob Gilmore-, showed up well by traversing a l.alf mile in .iZ. Bob, in the same stable worked three-quarters in 1 :21-"V.. Foul Weather, in the stable of Theodore E. Mueller, ran a half in lol-. Bob Gilmores Youneed, regarded as the meanest tempered horse on the race track, came pretty near causing serious injury to jockey Prank Kiniry and, as it was. the boy was lucky to escape with nothing worse than a lacerated big toe. Kiniry was about to gallop thfl horse when he lunged and reared, and reaching down grabbed the boys right foot and held it firmly between his teeth. The l oy -nly succeeded in releasing his foot by tiirowing himself from the horse, which was forced to his knees. Dr. J. H. oDonnell, who witnessed the accident, took the boy to a neighboring drug store and dressed his injury. Jn order to avoid any further accidents of this nature Gilmore has decided to retire Youneed from racing and he will shortly be sent to some farm to be used in breeding. Youneed is an eight-year-old horse by Ogden — The Nurse, by Yankee, his dam is a half-sister to Miss Kearney, dam of Zev. lie is well bred and ought to make a good sire. W. L.
