CANDY QUEEN OUT OF DERBY Brilliant Filly, Owned by Chicago Sportsman, Injured in Last Race — Declared Out of Big Contest. LOUISVILLE. Ky.. May lO.The Perby field was definitely reduced by one this morning, with the announcement that H. T. Archibalds Candy Queen, the only filly of western ownership that was seriously regarded as a contender, will not start in the race. Announcement to this effect was made this morning by train, w George Walker, who has had charge of the fillys training since her racing career began. Owner Archibald, who is in Chicago, was apprised by wire of the fact that the filly is not fit for the gruelling engagement, and he very reluctantly wired his consent that the filly be withdrawn. Her failure to start is a severe blow to Mr. Archibald, who had eagerly looked to her meeting the best of her age in the rich prize. Candy Queen has been training in splendid fashion, but her undoing came on the occa-sion of her three-year-old debut in the Periatrial last Saturday. Shortly after the start of the race she was bumped with such force as to be knocked to her knees and. in striking the ground with her head, she suffered a painful injury to her jaw. Th • mish:ip. naturally, ■potted whatever chance she had in the rare, and she finished far hack. Candy Queen is eligible for the Kentucky Oaks, to bo run Jnt 1, and trainer Walker believes that he will be able to get her n-ady for that race. The Archibald stable has several other I crby eligibles. none of which appear equal to the task uf . mi et;ng in the race, and the Chicago sportsman probably will be without reprnsentation.
