I | I J j ! I I -6 DERBY WORK AT DOWNS • Jeff Livingstons Quivero Gallops a Fast Mile. ♦ Sanola Runs Three-Quarters in 1:11 — Worthmore Shows Speed — — Startle in Good Form. LOUISVILLE. Ky., April 19.— The Churchill Downs track Saturday morning was in better condition than it had been in nearly a week and trainers of Kentucky Derby can-j didates took full advantage of this pleasing condition of affairs by sending their charges along at a merry clip. In a majority of cases the horses were sent short distances at good speed. Qui%ero. from the Jefferson Livingston stable, was the only one asked to go one mile, and the fine-looking son of Royal II. and Lillian Shaw showed his fitness when he reeled off the distance in 1:44; the most im-i pressive gallop he has shown since coming here from the south. The colt was under a restraint all the way and could easily have covered the distance in 1:10. He went along 1 at a steady gait and ran like a colt that can go a long route for he was eager to run in ! the final eighth, which he traversed in time j slightly faster than the opening eighth. Trainer Al Kirby. who has the colt in charge. I was immensely pleased with the work and I said that there was no question about him ■ being ready to start in the Derby. Sanola, the crack filly that I.on Jones is preparing for the Derby and Oaks, gave a fine exhibition of her speed when she went 1 out alone and ran the three-quarters in j 1:14%, tie best at that distance shown by any of the locally trained Derby eligibles to date. The filly was swinging her head, and jockey W. Fronk had her well under eon- I trol as she galloped the quarter in :23 and the half in llTr,- Glide, another of Jones Derby and Oaks aspirants, was not called upon to extend herself beyond covering a half mile in :52%. Continued on twelfth p.ige. DERBY WORK AT DOWNS Continued from first page. Worthmore was given his speediest work in over a week, when he went out unaccompanied and galloped a half mile in :49, going the quarter in :23%, and three-eighths in ::.5%. This work will fit the colt admirably for a tryout at one mile, either Sunday or Monday. AYise Counsellor was out for a gallop at two miles, but he was not asked to extend himself. This colt appears to be in perfect trim, and looks even better than before he was given physic that necessitated a slight lei up in his work. Pete Coyne sent both King C.orin II. and Hourbon Hoy for a trip at three-eighths in :38 as a preliminary to a more pretentious trial at one- mile Sunday. I ord Martin and Frankman from the Audley Farm Stable galloped together a half mile in M% and pulled up sound. Altawood showed up well when he ran a quarter in :2Gls. Inver accompanied by Yalador, a stable mate, created a good im-pression by rattling off three-quarters in 1 :1S. The most impressive move of the morning of any horse at the track was witnessed when Joe Hawkins sent his good mare Startle the fastest mile of the year, the mare reeling off the distance in 1 :43. She negotiated the quarter in :2:i%. half in Mk lnd three-qrarters in 1 :Hs. Startle is coming back to the races this spring after being in retirement some time and if her present condition is any criterion, she will be a dangerous horse in any company. Princess Doreen. the Audley Farms principal Oaks candidate, showed that she is not far from being ready to race when she went out in the company of Pearl Mesta and ran a half in :4! and three-quarters in 1 :15%. Carl Wiedemann came from his home in Xewpc.rt with a party of friends and for their benefit. Bob Cilmore brought out In Memoriam and gave him his most ambitious gallop of the training season. With Toad Brooks astride, the big chestnut went the quarter in :24:t.-,. half In :19%. Tve-eighths in 1 :"2-r . and the three-quarters in 1 :15%. Gil-more then waved to the rider and he eased up the colt la the final eighth, finishing the m mil I hjhlhsi in 1:29. In Memoriams best previous time for three-quarters was 1:17. The colt, in his latest work, ran well under rattraJnt a»d could have done much better if his rider had so elected, lilmore. who is pointing him for the Clark Handicap, the 0,000 added money stake to be run the oaontag day at Churchill l ovns. is confident that In Memoriam will be fit and ready to fill that engagement, which will be his first race of the year. Frederick A. Burton, wealthy Chicago sportsman, who has been visiting Churchill Downs for the purpose of inspecting Wise Counsellor. In which he owns a half Interest, departed Saturday Car his heme. He is we!i pleased with the colts appeal and is confident that he will triumph in both the Ireakness and Derby. Sixteen hotses in the J. S. Ward stable were transferred Saturday morning to the Aqueduct track. Only three members of the stable were left be-hind, these being Wise Counsellor. Worthmore and Defiant. The latter is a candidate for the Kentucky Oaks. According to the plans of the stable this trio of cracks will be sent to Pimlico next I.-id.iy ami after the naming of the Prank- ness. in which Wise Counsellor is certain to start, they will be returned to Churchill Downs in time for Wise Counsellor and Worthmcre to start In the Derby. Jockeys J. D. Mooney and Danny Jones, who rode at Tijuana, arrived from that place Saturday. Mooney rode Black Gold in his three races at New Orleans this year, including the Louisiana Derby, and will have the mount on the Black Toney colt in the Kentucky Derby. Jones is an apprentice. under contract to C. H. Knebelkamp, and is a rider of much promise. W. H. Hall arrived Saturday from Huntington with the horses Bine Stone, Ruth s.. Nell Jo. Miss America and Sway. Thom;is Shullman of Cincinnati, who has an interest in some of the horses in the Williams Brothers stable, was a visitor Saturday. W. M. Cain, who recently arrived with his stable from New Orleans, is in a local hospital undergoing treatment for stomach trouble. Rome Ttespees, who has not raced any horses in recent years at Churchill Downs. is evidently planning to race at that track this spring for he has requested that twelve stalls lie it served for his stable. Jefferson Livingstons Ihrtm JOsH old filly. Tempting, which broke down while racing at Jefferson Park, has been sent to Rome Res-I» enr Highland Farm to be bred to Colonel Vennie. A number of stables from Tijuana that were scheduled to arrive at Douglas Bark Friday, have not yet put in their api earance and the delay is believed to be due to the quarantine tnat-the Arizona authorities have placed on horses coming from California. Among the number are the International Stable and the W. F. Knebelkamp and Then I Hi !:••!• stables.
