The annual running of the rich Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs Saturday afternoon may find a possible solution of the puzzling question as to which youngster is entitled to the years two-year-old honors. The race may also decide the winter favorite for the Kentucky Derby. Ten of the best juveniles are to be brought together to battle over the one mile route for the 0,000 added money and the honor and glory that goes with the winning of this stake, which since its inception has steadily grown in importance, and is now regarded as one of the really high class juvenile events of the year. Like all valuable stakes decided in Kentucky the easterners are going to make a strong bid for first honors in Saturdays great event. Numerically east and west have equal representation, while in the matter of ability of their representatives both sections are about evenly matched, although in Master Charlie, the Atlantic seaboard appears to have possibly the most formidable contender. This colt, with the rich Hopeful Stakes to his credit, comes west with an enviable reputation, and if he runs up to the expectations of his trainer, Andy Blakely, a far-seeing horseman, he will garner the honors. The easterners will also have strong contenders in Swope, Sunsard and Nicholas. The west will place its main hope in D. Breckenridges Kentucky Cardinal, winner of the Queen City Handicap at Latonia, and this splendid colt will not disappoint Other westerners, like Pas Seul, Abstract, Annihilator and Supremus, can be depended upon to uphold the reputation of Kentucky. Figuring on all the ten named going to the post, the gross value of the stakes will amount to ?29,780, of which the winners net portion will be ?2G,160. C. Kummer, who will ride Master Charlie, reached here Friday afternoon, accompanied by E. Legere, who will have the mount on Nicholas. The Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes aspirants were given their final trial this morning. With the exception of Master Charlie, which was sent a mile, they were only asked to travel shcrt distances. The introduction of Master Charlie to the local track impressed the work watchers most favorably. The colt began from the mile chute and under good restranit covered the quarter in 23, half in 49, three-quarters in 1 and the one mile in 1;40. It was pronounced an excellent work. Nicholas, the dark grey colt belonging to Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt, showed an excellent turn of speed, when trainer Pete Coyne sent him a half in 47. Pas Seul, which will carry J. N. Camdens colors in the stake, was given a tightening up gallop at three-eighths, which he covered in 35Vs, to the eminent satisfaction of trainer D. E. Stewart LAUREL, Md., Oct. 31. One of the best fields that has been named for the stake race this year is announced for the eleventh running of the Washington Handicap tomorrow. Ten are named to go, and each of them is a iiorse that has earned respect in stake competition this year. The race is at a mils and a quarter, with an added value of 5,-000. It will be worth 0,200 to the winner if the ten go to the post. Among the sure starters is Mrs. Vander-bilts great gelding, Sarazan, which undoubtedly will rule favorite. It seems quite certain that he will win. Has not the son of High Time and Rush Box beaten everything opposed for him. and has carried high weight in doing it? His greatest triumph this year was in the Third International Special, in which he defeated Epinard and some of the bsst American horses in training in one of the fastest races ever run anywhere. Despite his impost of 126 pounds in tomorrows race Sarazen is expected to save a glorious victory. His final preparation for the race was a mile yesterday morning in 1:45. He has not needed hard training, being thoroughly fitted by recent racing. After being convinced that Sarazen is going to win, you may be told that Hallucination, the sensation of the Canadian turf last summer, is a dangerous rival. And dangerous he will be, for trainer Henry Mc-Daniel has painstakingly brought the J. K. L. Ross racer up to his best form for the most important engagement of his career. Hallucinations impost is 122 pounds. He receives four pounds from Sarazen in actual weight, ten by the scale. He is a horse of, abundant speed but tractable and has always been able to follow a fast pace handily and has always shown the heart to come from behind such a pace to victory. He is one of the largest and most beautiful horses in training. Ilallucinaion galloped a half mile this morning and pulled up sound. Spot Cash is the choice of another group. His Candian victories are pointed to with pride. His later racing in New York -is upheld as proof positive that he will be hard to bfcat in the AVashington Handicap, and may even win it, to the delight of A. C. Bostwick, his owner, Jim Healey, his trainer, and IT. P. Whitney, his breeder, since the master of the Brookdale stud has nothing of his own in the race. There is some doubt that My Own will start No rider was assigned him this morning and Barnes, who does a lot of the saddle work for the Salubria stable has been engaged on Sun Flag, his mount in the Maryland Handicap last Saturday. Sun Flag is another that is rated highly for the race. All that is needed to give him a good chance is to ride him along in front and save his charge for the stretch run. Last Saturday Barnes was instructed to keep in front with the Sun Briar colt He did so between the sixteenth post and the finish, but Continued on sixteenth page. LAURELS BIG FEATURE; . Continued from first page. not until he had set a dazzling pace, going a quarter in :22, a half in :45, three-quarters in 1:10 and a mile in 1:36. The theory that Sun Flag under different riding may triumph is prominent. Rustic is another likely starter whose form is good. The A. II. Morris color bearer just , missed catching Sarazen last week in a race . at the same distance and under the same weights as they are scheduled to carry tomorrow. McAtee has been substituted for Maiben. hut is just as good a rider, in general opinion. It will only be necessary to tell the Baltimore boy to move a few yards farther from the finish than Maiben did and the stake may go to Rustic Then there is Aga Khan to bs considered. The believers in the Belair Studs home-bred son of Omar Khayyam Lady Carnot are legion. One has to go back only to his race in the Maryland Handicap to find proof that he may be formidable. He gained on the leaders at the sixteenth post with a rush that seemed certain to overhaul Sarazen just as the son of Rush Box put Sun Flag away. Then he tired, but may do better tomorrow. Princess Doreen. the only filly in the race, lias a few friends. She won in Kentucky last Saturday, finishing first in the race that bursted the bubble of Chilhowce, but the strongest probability of her winning is a hunch. Chacolct, another mare, came from Kentucky last spring and won the Dixie, Marylands other 5,000 added stake for horses three years old and over. The Audley Farm filly will be one of the outsiders. Donag-hee will keep her company in this distinction. Big Blaze, the son of Campfire, has worked better than anything in the race. He declined in tiie Maryland Handicap last week, but is ready to run for a kings ransom tomorrow, and Ivan Parke Americas leading rider has been engaged to ride him. All the others are keyed to concert pitch. Spot Cash eased up this morning with three-eighths in :37. Rustic is training at Pimlico and worked well there yesterday. Sun Flag went three-eighths this morning in :40. Aga Khan galloped five-eighths in 1 :04. Princess Doreen, fitted by Kentucky racing and a train ride, went three-quarters in 1:18. Donaghee passed a half in :50, Hallucinaion went the same distance in :52. Sarazen covered a mile yesterday in 1:45. My Owns final this morning was a five-eighths in 1 :05. i j
