STARS FOR CHICAGO » Prominent Stables East and West Coming to Hawthorne. Black Gold, Nellie Morse, Beau Butler, Chilhowee and Others Entered in Chicago Derby. "The halcyon days of Washington Park will have nothing on the racing we will offer the Chicago public at Hawthorne," said Joseph A. Murphy, general manager of the Chicago Business Mens Racing Association, who returned to his desk yesterday after trips to Toronto, New York and Latonia. "This may seem an extravagant statement if it was not substantiated by actual facts. I brought back the entry of Black Gold in the Derby. Mr. Webb waited to hand it to me in person. He made a special request for four stalls in the old Corrigan barn near the three-quarters post and will ship right after the Latonia Derby. Senator Johnson N. Camden, president of the Kentucky Jockey Club, will take the rest of the barn with his stable. "I also brought back the entries of Senator Norris and Sarko from the Kenton Stable, which will have fifteen horses here; the entry of Altawood, which finished fourth in the Kentucky Derby. I also have the entry of Chilhowee, which finished second and. as we already have the entry of Beau Butler, we have the four first horses in the big Kentucky feature. RAXCOCAS COMIXG HERE. "When I was in New York I had a personal chat with Sam Hildreth, trainer of the Ilan-cocas Stable. He told me if Dave Learys health improved he was going to send a division of the Rancocas Stable here to race in his charge. In any event, he will give us several entries in our stakes and will have a representative here for the Derby. I talked with Jimmy Howe of the Harry-Payne Whitney Stable and he told me that his three-year-olds were not much. However, he will have a division of his stable here in charge of Mose Goldblatt, who has entered Uproar from the Whitney Stable and Privilege from his own in the Derby. Gold-blatt will have 2G horses in his charge here. In addition to these, Clyde Phillips will be here with the entire western division of the Greentree Stable. He has entered Rinkey. winner of the Ashland Oaks, Dazzler and Pickpocket in the Derby and in addition to these. Exodus and Moonraker in the Independence and Labor Day handicaps. "I also saw Alex Gordon, trainer of the Bud Fisher Stable and he is going to enter Nellie Morse, winner of the Preakness and Mr. Mutt in the Derby and will be there with one or both of them. Stake Me, King Tut, Graeme are other entries to date. Johnny Schorr has promised us Modest from the E. B. McLean Stable, Pete Coyne will send us King Gorin II., and we expect entries from Frank Brown, Bob Walden and others. The Derby bids fair to be the greatest three-year-old race of the summer. IX MEMORIAM ENTERED. "Bob Gilmore handed me the entry of In Memoriam in the Independence and Labor Day Handicaps. He tcld me his horse was going along fine and he is anxious to repeat his victories of last year here. It might be that we will be able to arrange some specials with In Memoriam as the central figure. "A. B. Hancock is coming with twenty horses, headed by Audacious, which broke the track record at Iatonia Friday. Mr. Hancock asked me to reserve him hotel aeeommoda-tiontions for the whole meeting. J. B. Res-pess is also coming for the entire meeting and Howard Oots also is bringing his own and some horses for Polk Laffoon of the Kentucky Racing Commission, and others. Pete Coyne is bringing one of the most pretentious strings to be here. Williams Perkins, J. C. Milam, T. J. Pendergast, M. Low-enstein, E. R. Bradley. H. Xeusteter. T. M. Murphy, H. T. Batchler, H. P. Headley. C. A. Hartwell, Audley Farm and others will make up the Kentucky contingent. From Xew York will come the A. Swenke, Jack Richardson, Sam Louis, Ixiuis Bauer and other strings and the best that are at Omaha will come to represent the far west. "There will be a brilliant array of riders. Ivan Parke, L. McDermott, Karl Pool, Griffin, Wgoda, Corcoran, Stutts, Harvey and many others will be here. "Everywhere I warned people that the associations policy was strict obedience to law as construed by judge Lindsay and ther.» would be no temporizing with law breakers by the association itself." BELMONT TO MAD PLAY I V ■ j Continued from first page. — by Fator and he began his task of making * pace for Mad Play. He was two lengths ls clear swinging into the backstretch and Mad Play was in second place, but just t a head before Abu Ben Ahdem, and Aga Khan was only a neck farther away. The others were in fairly close order, with Mr. hr Mutt last of the company. Through the |e backstretch Sheridan continued to hold his rt lead and was going easily, while Sande had l. a good hold of Mad Play and had drawn out slightly from the others. At that stage of of the running it looked for an instant as though the Rancocas silks would be both th first and second. Then leaving the back-stretch k_ Sande made his first move with Mad lj Play and he readily went to his stablemate ie and on by to head him easily. Then came ne Thorndale with a mighty rush that landed him in third place and he was going so fast st that he loomed as a real menace. Modest _t was racing with him and Mr. Mutt was beginning ;_ to circle around his opponents and r,, jiiek up his company one at a time. Aga „a Khan had dropped back and it was evident nt that he was beaten, while beta Klondyke and nd Beau Butler were thoroughly beaten and nj Samaritan was being badly outrun. Swinging for home Mad Play was a length th and a half to the good and Sande was nursing rig him almg cleverly. Sheridan was beginning •e e ■r in n 1- le d le of f jr ;r ■ j V I — * ls t a Mr. hr the |e his rt had l. out of of as th k_ lj ie ne fast st _t ;_ and r,, Aga „a nt and nd and nj th rig to weaken and still both Thorndale and Mod- 1 est threatened. In the last eighth Sheridan weakened, as was expected after his early effort and Mad Play came on to be winner by two lengths. Modest and Thorndale were battling along valiantly until the Block colt faltered, then along dashed Mr. Mutt to snatch second place from Modest in the last strides. There was a mighty cheer went up for the winner as he crossed the line and when Sande rode him back to the scales there was another demonstration. Old Duettiste, the son of Ethelbert, with which Joseph Widener had visions of win- ning a Liverpool Grand National, showed a spark of his old-time class in the running of the two miles and a half of the Meadow Brook Steeplechase. He was an easy winner from J. S. Cosdens imported jumper, Dan IV., the top weight of the company, with the Dosoris Stables Vox Populi II. the one to finish third. This result would have been different as far as the horses back of Duettiste were concerned had it not been for two falls. Bulls-le eye, the stablemate to Dan IV., went down and the Greentree Stables Damask fell over him. That at least permitted Vox Populi II. to share in the purse. Mergler remounted Bullseye and finished the course with him. There was another accident in the run-as ning when Walter J. Salmons Courteous ; went down with Veitch at the second fence. Fortunately all three riders escaped serious injury. Vox Populi II. was the one to cut out the early running and he stole away into a long lead in the first half mile. Duet-ej tiste raced forward ly after him and both 1 Bullseye and Dan IV. were not far away. Damask was rated well back of the pace, ■ but those following the pacemaker were all 1 in fairly close order, first with Bullseye and 1 then Dan IV. making a run at Duettiste. • The Widener jumper went along steadily under all challenges. Vox Populi II. tired of his pacemaking and dropped back ; he was 5 in command and galloping steadily, In the last run through the back field I Haynes moved up on the outside, but Duet-ng - t:ste had so much left that he readily drew 1 ; 1 ■ 1 1 • 5 I - out. Then it was Bullseye that chased after ter 0 G him and while he could not get to the big ig bay be was still a strong galloping second nd 7 7 when he came down two fences from the he finish. This put Duettiste practically with- :h- ij s out contention for the rest of the way. Dan IV. finished with courage back of him and nd Vox Populi II. was third, as already told, because Damask blundered into the fallen S Bullseye and fell over him. The Meadow . Brook was worth ,000 to the winner. J. S. Cosdens Laplander, the black son of of The Finn and Black Swan, was an easy winner in_ of the Keene Memorial over the five and nd . a half furlongs of the main course. It was as 1 worth just ,575 to the winner. Richard T. T. 1 Wilsons Senalado was doing his best to save ive second place from Lee Rosenbergs High- ?h- ! binder, and the Rancocas Stables Pedagogue ,ue was fourth. Back of him came Cloudland, , a a s stablemate of the winner, Harry Payne Whit- lit- I neys Reminder and Mrs. K. E. Hitts Master ter Crump. As the colts left the paddock there was an an accident that virtually put Master Crump out of the running when he lunged into the inner ner rail and, unseating J. Burke, ran away almost ost a circle of the course, being finally caught by by Redcoat Murray. Little time was lost at the barrier and ind right from the start McAtee rushed into a a good lead with Lapland. Pedagogue was in in r.econd place and Senalado was outside of of him and not far away. Cloudland followed ved closely, but as Lang tried to send him lim through on the inside shortly after leaving ing the back stretch he was shut off and had to take up shortly, losing any chance he may nay have enjoyed to share in the stake. McAtee made every use of Iaplanders ers speed and he was still well clear as he made ade the turn into the back stretch. By that time ime Senalado had disposed of Pedagogue and and Highbinder was closing fast on the outside. :de. Through the stretch Laplander was not not threatened, but right at the end Marinelli lelli had to drive Senalado sharply to save second ond place from Highbinder by a neck. The race run by Reminder was a dull one and there was no time that he was close in the con-r ■on- tentibn.
