, l 1 - I I CANDi QUEEN AGAIN Gives Further Convincing Proof of Her Advanced Condition. ♦• Covers Mile in 1:44% Over Slow and Cuppy Track — Other Derby Candidates Work. • LOUISVILLE. Ky., April 12.— H. T. Archl-• balds Candy Queen, potential candidate for Kentucky Derby honors, gave further proof of her advanced training and fitness when this morning at Churchill Downs she galloped a mile over a slow and cuppy track in the good time of 1 :44V After witnessing this latest gallop of the roan filly, horsemen were of the opinion that it was the most impressive Derby trial of the entire local training season. Candy Queen is credited with galloping a mile in 1 :44 in a work over a fast track about ten days ago. This mornings work, while two-fifths of a second slower, was more impressive, and had the going been fast the filly could have shaded her former mark by three or four seconds. It was a most convincing performance and proves that. the Archibald filly has not only improved over her two-year-old form, but that she will have no trouble in racing over a long distance of ground. Candy Queen had Candy Star as pacemaker and she demonstrated her superiority over her stablemate in no uncertain manner. The pair broke at the stand and Candv Queen, assuming the lead, covered the ground in faultless fashion and with jockey McDer-mott having a snug hold of her. As usual she was full of run near the end of the dis-stance. The watches caught her in the following fractions : :25Vs, :37Vs, tjO-" 104% 1:17%, 1:44%. FILLY PULLS UP SOUND. She was eased up at one and one-eighth miles in 1 :59. The filly was fresh after the work and pulled up sound. It was owner Archibalds intention to be on hand to see his filly work, but he was detained in Chicago by the death of a relative. It was the regular work day of the Derby aspirants and all of them were given work of a more or less pretentious nature. The threat of more rain caused trainers to hurry the trials of their charges and, as a result, all of the Derby gallops were conducted at an early hour. The course at Churchill Downs had dried out somewhat, hut the going was still wet beneath the surface and cuppy in spots. Osmand, Kiev. Candy Blackbird. Royal Julian and Young Prince all turned in satisfactory trials at Churchill Downs. J. j. Coughlins Robert Mandel showed the hest performance at Douglas Park, where he is training in a highly satisfactory manner. Osmand. in the company of Feu Follett, and with Earl Sande in the saddle, was sent a mile, the big chestnut covering the distance in 1:44S. The pair broke at the stand and Osmand in the lead, was timed in the following fractions : :2o, :37, £•%, 1 :17, 1 :44V The son of Sweeper— Ormonda made a good showing, but it was apparent that he was tapering off near the end. Kiev, with R. Yelton up and with Chance Shot as a running mate, also rattled off a mile, going the distance in 1:1."%. The pair galloped along on almost even terms, the fractions being :24V :37. :7 0, 1 :03V 1:17, 1 :4 3V Kiev is not a work horse when running alone and needs competition to make him extend himself. The presence of Chance Shot as pacemaker seemed to have a beneficial effect upon the imported colt, for he showed a better disposition to run. KOYAL JULIAN TRAINS WF.LL. There are not many Derby eligibles train-j ing better than Hoyal Julian ami the big chestnut colt is showing improvement with every trial. He was sent a mile this morn-ling and trainer Johnson, for the first time, sent him out with Kric, a stablemate, as pacemaker. The latter, however, could not keep up with his more noted stablemate. Royal Julian went about his task in his usual steady manner, covering the distance in 1:44+.-,. and eased up an extra eighth in 1 :.".:. The fractions were :12 V :25V M "jI5* 1 :04 V 1 :17V 1 :31. 1:44V With Candy the Creat acting as pacemaker for the first five-eighths, Candy Blackbird negotiated the one mile in 1 :47, which was an excellent showing for the Archibald colt. The fractions were :2" , ::;?, :,i ■"•- 1 04V 1:1SV 1 :47. J. H. Muddens Young Prince turned in his Continue.! on eighth l aze. CANDY QUEEN AGAIN Continued from first page best work of the training season when he ran three-quarters in 1:16%. Trainer Danny Miller was elated after Robert Mandel showed his best work of the training season by going three-quarters in 1 :15%, which is the best time for the dis-distance made by any Derby eligible at either of the local courses. Robert Mandel had Free Miller as a pacemaker. The Derby colts fractions were :24%, :36%, :49, 1:02%, 1:15%. He was galloped out an extra eighth in 1 :30%. The work was at Douglas Park, where the track was in better condition for trials than Chun hill Downs. «
