VALUABLE WALDEN STAKES To Be Run at Pimlico November 14 Nominations for Rich Fixture Total 113. BALTIMORE, Md., Oct 31 Pimlicos two-year-old feature, the Walden, at a mile, closed with 113 nominations, and is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 14, the eleventh day of the coming autumn meeting. First instituted in 1907 and named for the prince of trainers, R. "Wyndham Walden, father of R. J. Walden, the presiding master of Bowling Brook, the initial running, very appropriately, was won by Mr. Waldens son-in-law, Fred Littlefied, with the homebred Jubilee. In this year it was worth the modest sum in added money of ?1,000, this figure being successively raised to ,500, ,-000 and ,000 up to 1920, when the present figure of 0,000 was established. Subsequent winners have been such outstanding figures in the equine world as Trance, Faunlleroy, Zeus, Penobscot, Ten Point, Superintendent, Double Eagle, Colonel Vennie, Columbine, War Cloud, War Pennant, Dominique, Idle Dell, Relay, Oui Oui, Senator Norris and Stanwix. For the nineteenth renewal every prominent entire colt and filly in the country has been named, including Master Charlie, winner at Tijuana, and of the Hopeful, Nicholas, the Fair Stables ,000 colt, I Swope, American Flag, one of the first of Man O Wars get, Single Foot, the best j two-year-old bred in Maryland in years, and Mother Goose, winner of the Futurity. The Walden, coming a week after the 0,-000 Pimlico Futurity will be in the nature of a sequel to this rich stake, and as "the Walden is a handicap, while the Futurity is at weight for age, the winner of the latter will probably carry a big penalty. Of special interest to the sportsman who breeds his own stock is the Pimlico.Homebred for two-year-olds, starters to be owned by the breeder, and to have been his absolute property since time of foaling. The Homebred will be run on Thursday, Nov. C, and has attracted sixty-five nominations from the stables of A. Barklie, H. G. Bedwell, Belair Stud, James Butler, J. N. Camden, Chesterbrook Farm, Glen Riddle Farm, Greentree Stable, J. E. Griffith, H. P. Headley, K. E. Hitt, Idle Hour Farm, W. M. Jeffords, Mrs. W. M. Jeffords, J. O. Keene, W. S. Kilmer, E. B. McLean, Mar-rone Stable, H. W. Maxwell, A. H. Morris, Rancbcas Stable, J. K. L. Ross, S. Ross, W. J. Salmon, H. P. Whitney. R. T. Wilson, Jr., and Xalapa Farm. Four of these stables, H. G. Bedwell, Belair Stud, J. E. Griffith and A. H. Morris, are Maryland owned, and i it is gratifying to see the state assuming its old lime importance as a breeding center, for which, its climate, grass, water and j accessibility eminently fit it
