0,000 PREAKNESS RUN MONDAY Wise Counsellor, Mad Play, Bracadale, Diogenes, Nautical and Sixteen Other Crack Three -Year -Olds Named to Contest for Marylands Richest Turf Prize BALTIMORE, Md., May 10. — Preakess day is at hand. On Monday, May 12, the fifty-fourth anniversary of the Pimlico track will be observed and no more befitting attraction could be offered than the Preakness Stakes. It is named after the first winner of the Dixie Stakes, which was revived this spring and won by II. P. Headleys noted mare Chacolet. The Preakness is now one of Americas most valuable stake races for three-year-olds. Twenty-one splendid thoroughbreds, representing fifteen different racing establishments, are named to strive for Marylands most coveted race. Twenty are colts, and Nellie Morse, the Pimlico Oaks winner, is the only filly among the carded starters. If all go, the race will be worth ,000 to the winner. For each withdrawal the winner will receive ,000 less. The second horse 9will be awarded ,000 regardless of the number of starters. Third place will pay ,000; to the fourth horse will go ,000. The Maryland Jockey Club has made elaborate preparations to entertain the immense gathering that will see the decision of the Preakness and from all indications old Pimlico will be taxed to its capacity. Wise Counsellor, despite his poor showing in his final trial for the Preakness, is the hope of the West and there are many who believe that the b;g son of Mentor will prove his superiority over the stars of the Kast. Mad Play, from the Rancocas Stable, is considered his most formidable rival. There will be admirers for practically every candidate with the Maryland contingent entertaining high hope in .1. S. Cosdens Nautical and the Kenton Stables Senator Norris. The H. 1". "Whitney Stable will ba repre- l sented by Transmute and Klondyke, the lat- I ter with the sensational Ivan Parke in the saddle. Sande is scheduled to ride Braca- jdale, L Fator Mad Play, while M. Garner is coming from Kentucky to pilot Wise Counsellor. Practically all of the probable starters .completed their training Thursday. Nau- ; tical and Apprehension, respecuve candidates of J. S. Cosden and the Oakridgo Stable, received their final prep this morn- : ing. The track was heavy for their moves. Johnny Koftus sent Apprehension a mile in j 1 :17, hard held. Nautical, with his weight ; up and a stable boy in the saddle, handily covered the Preakness route in 1 :53% in an impressive move. The Sea King colt ran the first quarter in :24%, the other fractional were aa follows: :5#, 1:1G*-, 1:43%. Recalling that Paul Jones, another son of Sea King, won a Kentucky Derby for th- Garths ; hi the mud, many will string with Nautical Monday if the going does not improve materially. The weather is unsettled today. McAtca came from New fork to ride Transmute, but turned out to be a spectator I only when James Rowe scratched the colt. iMcAtee remained over to ride the son of j Broomstick in the Preakmss. Bobbie Bowers brought Ivan Parke from Kentucky to ride Klondyke in the Ireakness. The boy also picked up a mount on Modest in the Spring Handicap. Frank Hachetl arrived from New York with Mad Play and Bracadale, the Rancocas Ireakness candidates. Sande and L Fator wiil be here Sunday to ride in the Monday stake.
