candidates that will strive for the rich prize and honor that goes with a victory in the fiftythird renewal of Kentuckys famed racing epic the Kentucky Derby Heavy clouds cold atmosphere and a heavilycushioned track somewhat militated against outstanding fast performances but none of the participants are in need of more than the usual limbering up exercise for they are air in the pink of condition Still some of the workouts were meritorious and attracted more than usual favorable comment commentThe The cynosure of all observers were the Harry Payne Whitney pair Bostonian and Whiskery respective victor and third in the recently run Preakness Stakes They will again be the colorbearers of the Harry Payne Whitney establishment establishmentBostonians Bostonians work was particularly impres ¬ sive not that his trial of a mile and a quarter the Derby distance in 20975 was anything out of the ordinary but because of the ease and willingness with which he went about his task He was ridden by H Shillick and had up his Derby impost Beginning from the Derby start he traversed the first quarter in 24 the half mile in 493 the threequarters in 1 15 and the mile in 1 42 At no time was the Preakness winner asked for his best speed and he was eased the final quarter to conclude his trial in 2 09 09WHISKERY WHISKERY TINDER RESTRAINT RESTRAINTWhiskery Whiskery was also kept under restraint throughout the mile and a quarter trial and Shillick who also handled him kept the colt at an even pace throughout as follows quarter 2G half mile 52Vs threequarters 11S and the mile in 1 45 45Trainer Trainer Scott Harlan also took advantage of the occasion to give Scapa Flow a mile and a quarter trial The big son of Man o War performed in handy style and fully to the satisfaction of his trainer trainerSaxon Saxon which will carry the Greentree Sta ¬ ble colors in the Derby acted a bit unruly and required the substitution of Shillick for Barnett before he could be made to work his mile trial Barnett could only get him to race half a mile in 57 Under Shillick he raced a mile well in hand in 145V and cantered out an additiona quarter to complete the mile and a quarter in 2 1G

particularly fast in the early stages as follows 24 4S 115 142 He displayed little fatigue after the trial and it is more than likely that Trainer J Schorr will decide to send him to the post postThe The above quintet of Derby eligibles were the only easterners that indulged in exercise during the morning The western represent ¬ atives to work included J N Camdens Hydromel There was much interest in his appearance There has been a strong doubt jf he will be among the probable ones at the barrier on account of the recent attack of fever he suffered sufferedMax Max Hirsch trainer of the Sage Stables Derby hope Rip Rap returned from a hurried visit to the breeding section where he visited several farms He inspected the stock of some of IMS employers and several of his own mares Late Thursday another Kentucky Derby starter was announced It is the Crescent Stables My Son which will be ridden by S Griffin The colt worked impressively and owner Mrs H E Crossiaiit decided that he would render a good account of himself in the race Trainer Stuart gave him a mile gallop and lie went about it as if he had recovered fully He was paced in the first halfmile by Euphrasia He concluded the mile in 142 His starting in the Derby will be determined by what effects he shows from his trial this morning Another that may be among the starters is J C Milams Mr Kirkwood He was worked a mile in 1 42M 42MThe The failure of jockey Kummer to ride Whiskery in the Derby has caused trainer Kowe to seek a substitute for him and he will probably secure the services of Laverne Fator to ride If possible Mr Rowe will be here to saddle the Whitney colts other Avise that function will be performed by Fred Hopkins who brought the Whitney band here hereJockey Jockey Frank Coltiletti who will ride
